Knife Hits - 'Eris' LP pre-orders

added by Alex Deller on Wednesday August 17 2016 in Pre-orders

Dead Tank are taking orders for the 'Eris' LP by Knife Hits. The label says: "'Eris' is twelve tracks of wounded and rabid hardcore, evoking turn-of-the-millennium screamo bands like Orchid and Pg. 99 who dealt in passion, poetry, and all-out brutality. The sound is so intense, it veers from screamo to grindcore, with blastbeats pelting like a hailstorm and riffs hurtling forward the way Discordance Axis' once did, and occasionally slows to a white-knuckle, Converge-worthy dirge. Akin to newer bands like Loma Prieta, Knife Hits takes the most crushing and emotive vibes of the late '90s/early '00s scene and makes new magic with it."

New At War With False Noise releases

added by Alex Deller on Monday August 1 2016 in New Releases

At War With False Noise have three new releases out, and they're all typically horrible. There's an ultra-limited cassette edition of Legion Of Andromeda's brilliantly arduous 'Iron Scorn' album; a tour split between Legion Of Andromeda and Scots doom/drone menaces Ommadon and a tape by Leteo entitled 'Nothing But The Night'. This latter item the label describes as "creepy, deathly horror electronics from Mexico."
