Grindcore comes, grindcore goes Over the years, veteran deathgrinders Misery Index have been moving away from the latter and firmly into the former, the band morphing from a polished version of Assück’s political grind and His Hero Is Gone’s D-beat apoco-crust to something approximating the old Floridian DM legends offering up a take on grindcore.

Industrial death/doom trio 0N0 have a penchant for taking mechanical hellscapes inspired by Godflesh and their ilk and marrying them with oppressive death/doom metal. Their last album, Reconstruction and Synthesis, fully embraced that mechanical sound. With new EP Cloaked Climax Concealed (try saying that five times fast!), 0N0 incorporate a more atmospheric, less mechanical sound. The latter of two […]

Some creative partnerships are forged because the relationship between artists produces memorable, high-quality work. You know who I’m talking about—Mustaine and Friedman, Downing and Tipton, Hetfield and Hammett, et al.

Wake had a colossal year in 2018. Their album Misery Rites received a 9/10 (full disclosure: from this writer) and the album was named Decibel‘s 35th best album of the year. Little surprise, then, that their label Translation Loss is reissuing Sowing The Seeds Of A Worthless Tomorrow, initially released in a small cassette and […]

Sludge trio Romasa are celebrating filth, misery and excess on their aptly-titled new album, Cheering Death. Cheering Death follows a self-titled demo, which showcased earlier incarnations of the songs “Cheering Death,” “Pleasure is My God” and “Grateful for Filth.” The versions on Cheering Death are more refined than Romasa’s demo; over the course of five songs, Romasa build the crust-infected sludge, galloping […]

Distant Land Brewery: Perennial Artisan Ales (St. Louis, MO) Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale 6.2% ABV / N/A IBU This remarkable–but not particularly emblematic–saison from Perennial Artisan Ales is an ode to the extreme lengths American brewers are going to innovate with styles.
