I just got back from seeing Amebix, what a wonderful evening, i thought i would never be able to see this band. the show was amazing, they sounded perfect. On top of it all i got to see it for free, Oh happy Day! So sorry no post today, i'm too tuckered out.
"They lead you to the slaughter, like they lead a horse to water, the can't force you to drink, but you do, ya you do!"
Noise, Fuzz, Distortion, some of the words i would use to describe the great AtrociousMadness. Any-who Frank the vocalist went on to play in one of the best punk bands in the last 10 years LebendenToten. Frank also played in another great band i posted last week Funeral. But this isn't about them this is about AM and this slab of pristine vinyl i have in front of me, and the tremendous beauty it contains. Six tracks of pure Noisy distorted punk as fuck hardcore. so sit back stud your vest charge your hair and pass the glue bag, cuz things are gonna get fuzzy.
Space, the final frontier. We exist on a on a giant marble hurdling through the cosmos with an unimaginable amount of power slowly pushing us around and around the Sun in a constant groove. This is sort of the way i would describe NegativeReaction with their deep appreciation for all things spacey, and their infectious spacey sludge. This is there 1998 effort entitled 'TheOrbitEp'. It is what anyone would come to expect in a Sludge/StonerMetal band slow down-tuned grooves, and crushing Drums. But i must say i love the vocals they are exquisite, punishing anguished shrill strained vocals. Well that's all i got so enjoy some good old fashioned Sludge from NewYorkCity. For fans of Grief, Bongzilla, GravesAtSea, NoothGrush...and various others.
This is Repulsion and their only LP simply entitled 'Horrified'. This was released in 1989 on the Necrosis label which was a subsidiary of Earache records that was run by Jeff"Carcass"Walker(i think). Any ways this album rocks it reminds me of early Carcass mixed with Venom. I always hear them being lumped in with the grindcore genre and i am not sure why, i understand they have blast beats but that doesn't necessarily make you grindcore right? If i had my way, (and luckily since i run this thing, i do) I would call it Lo-fi Death Punk. As to expect from the cover and song titles like "Maggots In Your Coffin" and "Splattered Cadavers" you are gonna get your basic run of the mill death filled songs about gore soaked zombie holocaust's and the nuclear Apocalypse. So stop bascing in happiness and gera up for the emminent horror that is Repulsion!
This is for all those who love Disorder,Discharge, Gai, LebendenToten, Gloom, etc. This is Funeral and their 7" entitled 'CryOfStateDesperation'. I believe that the Frank thats plays Bass in Funeral is the same Frank from AtrociousMadness and LebendenToten. Anyway if you like fuzzed out raw D-beat you will dig this and all its ugliness. Here
This is Final and their 2004 7" 'GrowStrong/Empty'. Any way Final hail from Japan and kick a lot of ass. This is just straight forward Metal influenced Punk. It's heavy, distorted and raging. Enjoy Here
I love this 7"! from the moment i heard it i fell in love. This is Atomkinder and there one and only album. Atomkinder hail from Arizona and play fast as fuck Punk with a little bit of a metal tinge. Every last song on this record is absolutely beautiful and reeks of heart felt pain, angst, and fear. I used to listen to this 7" at least twice a day, find out why. Here
This is Buzzov*en, for those in the know this was Dixie Collins band prior to the awesome Weedeater. This 7" came out in 1997 and contains two awesome tracks 'NeverAgain' and 'Useless', both of which are great. So as expected this is good old down-tuned stoner doom for the downtrodden and terminally self medicated. So enjoy. Here
Ok so i bought this used the other day and have no idea what this is or when it came out. All i know it is some sort of Ambient noise band calling themselves SailorWinters, and the ep is entitled 'Monolith'. i thought was a good title seeing as how it is just this epic soundscape through muddied fuzz. That is all I really have to say, other then that I am not to sure how i feel about it. I don't know if this passes for good, bad or what. If you got any info please share. Here
This is a re-posting because i was un aware that i had a few incomplete tracks, so here you go and enjoy.
This is Weakling, they hailed from SanFrancisco, and play Epic BlackMetal. This release has been commented as being a "Masterpiece" and i would have to agree.This album was entitled 'DeadAsDreams' and came out in 2000, just after they had called it quits. 'DeadAsDreams' is both fast and slow with lots of atmospheric cavernous sound. The songs are long and drawn out, in a good way. Weakling project feelings of emptiness, anger, and deep seeded desperate depression(hooray for alliteration). Five tracks in all this release comes in at a whopping seventy-six minutes. In addition weakling also has members of Asunder, TheFuckingChamps, Saros, and TheHusbands. This is for fans of Bethlehem, Asunder, and depression. For some reason i see this band more with DoomMetal then i do with BlackMetal, i'm not sure why, its not like its that slow. I guess its because the drums are so fast and muffled it kind of slows the music down in addition to the slower melodic guitar. Well, i hope you enjoy, although enjoy doesn't seem appropriate.
This is Nazareth and their tribute to the downtrodden everyman entitled "Hair Of The Dog". Everyone has heard at least one song off this album, be it when you are watching TV and a commercial comes on for Monday night football and everything slows down and all the sudden you hear the anthemic sounds of Nazareth's "Love Hurts" as men get pumbled and smashed, or mabye you've just been dumped by your best girl so you and your best bro's are knee deep in Cans of Coors Light and cruisin in your dad's old truck and make the decision to go pick up that questionable hooker you all saw three blocks back only to find out afterward it was a man, and all the sudden you hear"Love Hurts". Anyway this album rules it is somewhere between Ac/Dc, Accept, and CCR. Its just good old fashioned Dude Rock, every song on this record rules and has earned an eternal spot in my heart. So put it on, crank it up, and drink til you can't see.
BlackNoise and BastardSounds was created as a way for me to waste time doing what i enjoy doing, which is listening and exposing myself(through song) to children. So enjoy the music. Also i encourage all who like the music i post to please go out and purchase it, because if we do not support the music we love we will only end up hurting ourselves.
Oh, and if you are in a band and want me to review your demo, or record just get in touch.

This is the disclaimer. I am not a Racist, nor a Sexist. I just happen to like certain bands which convey these detestable forms of humanistic expression. I feel that this disclaimer is necessary as to for go this explanation on every single post that i make featuring an offensive viewpoint. If you are offended that i post some profane material, i don't care. If you are so touchy as to what artists believe, but do not readily display in their art, you are far to uptight. Besides, that would rule out most music made prior to1960. So take the music for what it is, and spare me your political correctness.
