    Dodge Meteor – Real Soon Now

    Where some artists create with paint, feelings or whatever, Dodge Meteor create with riffs and by create I mean splatter everywhere in a turbo-blast of raw, bleeding power. Guitars howl and morph into each other through a colourful spectrum of bending chaos, whilst the crunching percussion hammers a thick, marching beat of dread...

    THANK – Sexghost Hellscape

    This is a Hieronymus Bosch painting in musical form that's started to melt into a sickening puddle of smoldering wax, wires and decay. Subjecting yourself for more than 20 minutes of this will send you fucking insane. Boiling, bubbling, mutated flesh, that's where we're coming from. I feel sick...

    JOHN – God Speed In The National Limit

    Being able to find stuff is overrated anyway. JOHN (comprised of John on drums and vocals and John on guitar) are, I'm guessing, more deadpan than a churchyard full of deceased cooking pots. They know the joke and are sticking with it and why should they crack a face to please you? ...

    The Bronx – V

    If one photo summed up The Bronx, it's in underlay card on this, their fifth album. It shows vocalist and professional "bear impersonating a man" Matt Caughthran, standing in the middle of a circle pit, microphone in hand, ready to scream some immortal and terrifying word to signal the rest of his band to collapse this ring of people in on itself. ...

    UpCDownC – I, Awake

    Split into 6 parts, I, Awake, the new album from instrumental-post-whatever-noise dirtbags UpCDownC, is essentially not being able to sleep at night; it's sticking your feet out the end of the bed and wondering if a clawed hand is about to grab hold. Sweet dreams...

    Perturbator – New Model

    France's Perturbator is a tricky customer. In a world that now seems dominated by night-driving, synthwave soundtracks, it's refreshing when that genre is altered somewhat. Like smearing perfectly applied make-up - it turns from something pristine and elegant to a distorted and chaotic smear. Oh, it can still look good, but the alteration will leave a lasting impression. ...

    The Lumes – Envy

    Whether the guitar on third track (Discharge) on this new EP from Rotterdam's The Lumes is being played remains to be seen. The long stretching, stream of feedback that emanates seems to indicate that it's been hurled into a speaker and left to pump out a noxious, squealing wail until the switch is finally flipped. Nice...

    Down I Go – Mortals

    Brilliantly self-described as "Drunk Wikipedia Farming" (aka, the kings of concept-core) the Stockholm/Illinois/Toronto trio that is Down I Go still exist as a band. Despite them all living in different countries, the simple matter of distance, time and space isn't going to stop them from creating music...

    PABST / Autisti – Split 7″

    Surely one of the best kept secrets in the underground music scene is CrazySane Records, right? This little Berlin-based label, run by Chris Breuer of ear-bothers HEADS. has been quietly releasing some great records, split 7" and EPs over the last few months and slowly building up a name for themselves...
