From the minds of a pale law abiding citizen, Black//Hawk puts their aim a little higher. These five southern quartet recently premiered their single teaser for this upcoming S/T EP titled "Schizophrenia". Released by Blacksheep Recordings and Rimauman Music. We think that this album is a bit Muddy, Noise, Feedback, Raw, and Sludge-blatantly face to face dirt en-visioned with a little d-beat/crust punk essence and that abrasive Mike IX Williams vibe vocals, Non-theless being Executive Produced by Farid Amriansyah who put some of his vocals layout in the album, mastered and mixed by Jimmy(AD Studio) and a cover album art by GOORM.
Six gritty back to back tracks, as we said before, it was gritty, raw, and full dirt loathe. Songs like "Doppelgangers" is an apparition of ourselves, there are not a lot of rooms to make variations, but thats okay, I consider this is more like a an aggresive sludge-waste beatdown, Ethical and Thrashers in with manner of contempt not to be interfere with. "Schizophrenia" is the prom Queen on all of this pale and despair themed album, Charging with a buzzsaw of punk rock fury, they bleed their artery and carry on with it. The bass lines in this album represents some nasty shit of mean, it's Intimidating in a weird way after being fused in with the feedback.
"Nervous Breakdown" No, it's not that Black Flag song. Rhythmic aggresiveness continues flowing ferociously like pack of rabid dogs. It's a predictable tune if you can compete. "III(Beige Menjadi Hitam)" starts launching in with frustrating of scream and lunging in to this sludge ritted in. "Rinela" is all about that bass, deep, distorted, mean and intimidating. Plus those amplified beatdown feedback note descending on the throne. Sure, there is a moment when the brutality stands down a let the moment of soundscaping begin, they restrained their inner beast "Final Ending" is a bit post-ish ambient creepy atmosphere clouding in around you, Misanthropic and pre-emptive.
We're Giving this 3.0/5
WARMOUTH X CLOUDBURST: Nausea.. Sickens In..(Split Album, 2014)
WARMOUTH X CLOUDBURST: Nausea, Sickness and Death...
Both from the same neigborhood, Yogyakarta. having the same taste of growing up in a hardcore punk scene. This split album contains screaming bloody gore, "Warmouth" is a three-piece vicious, dark, chaotic, hardcore punk reinventing Nails, Entombed, and things your parents maybe don't know. "Cloudburst" a four man metallic grind hardcore punk, that shove a hot steel up your ass, Combines a shard of Pantera and Alpinist on course. Released by Unleash Records. This split album consists in 5 tracks. Both bands are a growing pack of wolves, both of them have just released a demo that you can stream on their bandcamp.
The tracks starts off with Warmouth'Changing Lanes' it's a 42 second rushing d-beat power, end's with a noise of bang that continues to "Collapsing Lungs" the breathing shifting tune of the guitar, the vocals of Snarl, growl, scream, and death metal riveting through your inner ear organs. Cathartic and darkly excruciating that's "No Salvation". They glimpse out the dark anthemic brace up mode, Very enjoyable.
Cloudburst' steps in 'Warming Cabinet' it's this metallic sludge riff, a background of drums hitting and a changing of theme is a need. This is a well plotted complex sensible punk rock sound. Violent and rude. 'Fragments' a burst and a spark of d-beat pushing rough through the walls, you can hear that drum filling exchange when the riff shreds in, Sadness and Frustration echoes in around the vocals. Warmly entertaining.
This album is wildly suprising and nice, if you are a fan of hardcore punk, d-beat. I recommend you buy this album and listen to it while on a traffic jam, it'll warm up and start you day nicely. You can get the split album right here: www.unlshrecs.com
Here's some sample tracks for you to listen, go to their bandcamp to hear more:
SANDRIDER: "GODHEAD" IS RIFF FUELED AND PUMMELING DOWN UNDER!
SANDRIDER: "GODHEAD" IS RIFF FUELED & PUMMELING DOWN UNDER
It's Fucking Sick!
Rock Panache, Thrash Apocalyptic, Sandrider Is a band really not to be underestimated with, Straight from the Lineage of the Mighty AKIMBO itself, Put us in the Realm between Two worlds Sludge Metal and Stoner. Straight up from Seattle, these guys have been on the radar of my Favorite Stoner/Sludge Metal Band, On the bloodlines Nirvana, Melvins and Soundgarden molded into one. Jon Weisnewski(Guitarist) and Nat Damn(Drummer) was in the cutthroat Heavweight Champions 'Akimbo', While the Bassist Jesse Roberts was in a Prog Punk The Ruby Doe & Kid Kongo Powers. Sandrider itself already evolve themselves from their previous album back in 2011, in this album they've become More energetic, exploring, and lastly becoming more Awesome, so let's get to bits and tits shall we.
Still in the hands of Matt Bayles(Isis, Mastodon, The Sword, Tragedy), "Godhead" is a Gun blazing Northstar in the Stoner Rock world. Going out via Good To Die Records, these guys are unfuckable, Not to mention they have their own Unique way to be bad asses. So the album was made after Akimbo announce it's break up, so the guys focused on making 2nd Sandrider album. I must say this album is really Need to be in a Car Chase Movie, I mean listen to "Gorgon" It's fucking ripping your ears of your head, blasting all around like a Clint Eastwood shit was starting to get down on the block, and It's suddenly becoming my favorite album of the year. Heck yeah! why not? I mean "Ruiner" was Pounding, Stomps, Claps, Sensitively making my earbuds Bleeding. Eargasm was achieved. "Scalpel" oh don't get me started with that. That there is a master piece, My favorite track. Groove down with the beat. Vocal harmonies was Ill-fitting, making me flirting with my music stereo actually. "Godhead" Really the progressions of the new era of Bad Asses, Awesomeness, I can say Portland, Oregon very own Red Fang should have a Split album with this guys. Splitting my head in half with this Godhead shit. Powerful Indeed. I'm Giving (4.5/5)
Avhath - "Eulogy" EP Exclusive Premiere + Upcoming Tour Dates
Filth from the Night
Fright and Extremity
Sounds from the night, Avhath retains their throne of the dark with this upcoming "Eulogy EP". This is a follow up from their past release EP "Une Generation Perdue" 2 years ago on cassette format. They have just released a single recently in 2014, Christmas themed song "Frightened Teeth". Joyful and Merry. But now, We're not to talk about that. "Eulogy EP" will be released in 7" Format on 18 April Record Store Day 2015 in Indonesia. Features 2 New tracks and 1 Bonus track from their very first single "Catch 22". They also will be kicking off their Java tour with Disfare, yes promoting their upcoming split album together on the road. Tour Dates are down below.
AVHATH - EULOGY 7" PREVIEW
"Eulogy EP" was devastating sonic boom with an epic proportion, Avhath has surely sharpened their blade and pike, they step their game up another level, go deeper and deeper. They point themselves into a higher aim, delirous and amped with power. They didn't let it out to waste. Songs like "Eulogy I" was a facebreaker they never retain that crust punk provokeness. Even though it seems they may a bit shift their way out to another type of control. "Eulogy II" is a pounding downfall. You know something about Black Metal, it's not always about complete destruction. Sometimes it's a deep growth potential of things, rather than just blasting around and destroying anything. There's an Energy in it.
Here's the upcoming Tour Dates with Disfare:

Boston Based Heavy Metal/Hardcore League 'Doomriders' comeback with their latest new Album, features Blood, Sweat, Rage, and more Hard than the core. Hands up and fist pump. This is their 3rd Studio Album, after The successful of "Darkness Comes Alive" . Produced by Kurt Ballou, 'Darkness Comes Alive' was most to be told Shawn Bosler of Decibel magazine lauded the band's skilled songwriting, saying that "the stellar songwriting sounds like a well-honed band working together, stretching out the tunes and getting all ninja pyrotechnic on your ass." Now the New album is Out, will it carries on the Success? Let's Find out.
01. Intro (0:36)
02. New Pyramids (3:53)
03. Mankind (2:45)
04. Grand Blood (3:48)
05. Bad Vibes (3:32)

08. We Live In The Shadows (4:42)
09. Gone To Hell (3:41)
10. Back Taxes (3:07)
11. Father Midnight (5:48)
Now don't get me wrong, you may find something really new to the band Blood vein, More characteristic, More Power. the ones that really pulls me out of my chair and banging my head was 'New Pyramids' they got this kinda like rock n roll shredding going on around it, more like a complicated mixtures of Awesomeness, plus Nate Newton vocals more added up to the track, Making it more Anger fueled, bloddy bad ass. 'Bad Vibes' were kinda Punk/Heavy Metal tune you always hear back in the days, Cool, It's like one of those Jogging soundtrack when suddenly you got chased by someone's dog. It's rockish punk heavy metal, Me Likey!. 'Death In Heat' Track starts of with something you familiar with doom bands, Big ass riff, slo mo's and weed. It's death rides southwards, Hot, and blooded, sweaty, and Riffy. Pounding your ear with those Doomriders based sounding tune, you can hear the Bass line like a Pure rage englightment, 'Back Taxes' it reminds me of Coliseum somehow, one of my favorite band too, Pure heavy punk combine with hardcore heavy metal DNA, what can you get? A Hardcore heavypunk soundtrack, back to the jogging again! 'Mankind' was kinda The Ocean like intro, only it's a bit more than just Tech metal, it still have Doomriders main DNA. not much to say actually. 'Dead Friends' was one of Nate song about their deceased fellow friends, He said, "I didn't want it to be sad, I wanted it to be a celebration. I'm not going to sugar coat it. It's sad. But you can't spend your whole life in grief."About the lose theme of Grand Blood, Newton said, "The record focuses on getting older and dealing with death and all the responsibilities I was shirking most of my life. It's about looking in the mirror and taking responsibility."'Gone To Hell'Is maybe one of the most song that features Nate didn't scream, Nate was singing about grief, pain & death. 'We Live In The Shadows' darkness themed this band, So this is my favorite track, one from the many, it straighten up the Term and the Identity of 'Doomriders' itself. 'Father Midnight' It's like one of those Post-Metal song reminders, headbanging Addict will made this into one of their Main playlist. Interesting. Rage really does much of the album, Blood and pain does the trick. 'Grand Blood' was intruigingly magnificent, complex hardcore heavy metal. shreddin bass tune, axe killing with the guitar, and Blood massacre. I'm giving 'Grand Blood' 3.5/5
Poison Nova - Circle of Woe EP(Lawless Records 2015)
Know God, No Fear, No God, Know Fear
Slamming Adrenaline Pulse
Bleak, void, and hollow. An interpretation of what you've expect from these Melodic/Heavy/Black Metal enthusiast. I've seen them 2 years ago, In 2013, a split album with Bvrtan. 12 Tracks both bands are a promising sample of a magnificent resemblance of Black Metal music. But now, none of that matters. Sure, some tracks in the EP was in the split album but who cares. Misanthropic and devastating charging violently with devoution to bands such as Watain, Immortal, God Dethroned, Mayhem, and Burzum, we could go on for a long stretch of line... Poison Nova alters their combination into a combustion of heavy charging black metal fury. Released by Lawless Records this year 2015, approximately a couple months ago, cover artwork done by Devilreject who've done works bands such as Devildriver, Chimaira, Skeletonwitch,etc. The context of the booklet filled with photographs of skulls by Dinda Advena. Design by Arian A. and layout by Herry S, and.. mostly some page is just darkness mingling around.
Starts off the title track "Circle Of Woe" a cycle of grief, despair and death. You can tell much information about an album just looking from the title and the cover art. Monolithic cries of frenzy and that blast beat drum patterns, is a reminiscent of a classic death and rattle theme, this song is really not the one you should be playing in Easter. "Wounds of Gaza" a tale of how earth is fed up eating blood and flesh created by the living things that lived in there, Exhilirating lurid sounds, shifting chords and all out cries of apathy. It's supposed to a sad song then again I forgot that this a black metal album. It is a sad theme album but how they said it changes the whole thing immediately.
"The Curse of An Everlasting Search" an instrumental ambient noise with guitars, love those mist thin layered vocals hovering mid-air in the song, couldn't really hear it. "Anthem From Black Heart" Traditional black metal blast beat was interesting, but adding the deathmetal pedal beats was amazing. Pulzerising shifting notes and keys neatly put and add on. Not too much or too little. "Silent Wolves Howling Moon" this one is on youtube in 2013. Creeping death and shivers down your spine when you heard this lyrics "The sun will perish with eternal cold damnation" all of the sudden a post apocalyptic place were live in right now. "Pagan Blood" Features in our recent music article "10 Bands you Should Hear Before Hitting Puberty" tapping at number 6.
Please don't really turn all things go black, It's pretty damn hard to read the lyrics.. with all things aside here's an official video from the track "Silent Wolves Howling Moon"
