My Geiger counter is going nuts, must be a new Radioactivity LP out. HA! It is called Silent Kill. Creepy. If you fried your brain, then just a reminder that this is basically another Marked Men album. Here's the whole thing, so you don't have to go on Vice to listen to it:
Finnish noise-rock sluggers Throat have got a new thing out. It's called 'Short Circuit' and has six songs on it. You can get it on vinyl, CD or as a digital release from either Kaos Kontrol or Reptilian Records. Check it out below.
Something old and something new available to pre-order from www.punkdistro.de. First up is a 2xLP G-anx discography. They were a weird, ripping hardcore band from Sweden whose 7"s I bought because I'd once heard they were an influence on His Hero Is Gone. This thing compiles all their material, along with two unreleased songs. Elsewhere there's a new Despise You 7", which features three new tracks (one an RKL cover) on a one-sided piece of vinyl. This you can get from Pessimiser (!!!) if you’re in the States, otherwise order via the link below.
Just in case you've not heard, All Pigs Must Die are set to play a one-off UK show on 5 July at the Camden Underworld. If you've not heard 'em, these Southern Lordlings play savage, metal-streaked hardcore in the vein of Trap Them, Dear In The Dirt and The Secret. The good people at Old Empire are putting the thing on, and this is your only chance to see APMD in Europe unless you happen to be attending Denmark's Roskilde Festival.
