The Adventure Continues!


Business as usual will continue shortly, hopefully with less irritation!

Eryn Non Dae - Hydra Lernaïa

It sounds so much like Meshuggah that I almost didn't listen to it carefully. It would have been a great mistake, since Eryn Non Dae's first album is full of great ideas. I keep listenning to this with a stupid smile on my face, I hope you'll enjoy it to!

GREYMACHINE - Disconnected

Stream, don't get too excited. It'll probably leak before too much longer.

Also, I'm probably going to move the blog over to Wordpress before too much longer. Blogger keeps deleting posts without even telling me or threatening to delete the blog, and it's getting kinda tiresome. I'll post a link within the next few days, when I get around to actually making a new blog.

Pelican - The Fire In Our Throats Will Beckon The Thaw

I couldn't decide what to post, so I here's my random selection.
I'm pretty sure this isn't a CD rip, but my copy is all the way upstairs and I just can't be bothered to go that far right now.

By the way, if you ever have to choose between seeing Pelican live and seeing Keelhaul live, see Pelican.
Keelhaul is the most one of the most boring bands I've ever seen. Pelican actually seem to have fun and enjoy their own music.
People who saw Isis' last American tour will surely agree with me.


Fugazi - The Argument

Two or three years ago, my dad told me "you can't listen to hardcore if you've never listenned to Fugazi!". But he lent me The Argument, and I didn't really get where the hardcore was in this; it just looked like some awesome noise-something. Nowadays I know what he meant, and this remains my favourite Fugazi album.

Botch - We Are The Romans

I'm a little surprised that I haven't posted this already.
One of my favorite albums. Top 10, easily, if not top 5.



If there is any single industry that deserves a painful death, it's the music industry.

These lawsuits are nothing short of malicious. 30 songs is $30 on the iTunes store. If a person is caught shoplifting $30 anywhere else, it's a misdemeanor, deserving a slap on the wrist.
But steal from the RIAA, they'll fuck you up for the rest of your life.
Lawsuits accomplish nothing other than the continued alienation of fans and the ruining of a few innocent, law-abiding people's lives.

Don't buy RIAA CDs. Borrow them from someone else or steal them off the internet. Let's hurry up and put an end to these malignant, vicious companies.

The Misfits - American Psycho

You know who's overrated?
Fuck that guy.


Unsane - Occupational Hazard

Post-Hardcore for dummies.

Sabertooth Zombie - ...And Your Fathers Are Dead In The Ground

This album really clicked hard with me for some reason. Southern rock hardcore, with a few moments of a grind and a few others of sludge.

Tomahawk - Anonymous

I don't listen to Anonymous very often, but I enjoy it everytime I do.

The Casualties - Made In NYC

I like these guys. They used to be a really fun live band. This album is the proof.

Honestly, I think these guys need to take a few months off, maybe a year, and relax. They've toured pretty constantly for the past couple years, and the last time they came around here, they just looked tired. Take a break, guys.


Nadja - Touched + Truth Becomes Death

I had never realized how good is Nadja. If you don't consider that Drone bands are all the same, you could find an interest it this.



Truth Becomes Death

Saul Williams - Saul Williams

This post inspired by the Sage Francis post.

The Ocean - Aeolian

Progressive metalcore. Think Between The Buried And Me but less chaotic, or Rosetta but less spacey, or Old Man Gloom with more 'core-ness.

Nile - In Their Darkened Shrines

There isn't any Nile on this blog. I'm fixing that now.


Sage Francis

Sage's first and third album, I don't really enjoy the second one so I won't post it today. Just enjoy these, they're both amazing.

Nostromo - Ecce Lex

Technical blow your head off metal. They used to share their guitarist with Mumakil before they stopped playing in 2005. So sad.

Black Sheep Wall - I Am God Songs (again)

Re-post because this deserves more attention. Brutal sludgecore, imagine the misanthropy of Eyehategod and the suffocating atmosphere of Buried At Sea. Not an easy listen by any stretch of the imagination, but well worth it if you're in the right mood.

Embrace the End - Ley Lines

Remember when the term 'metalcore' didn't connote bullshit? This is that. Riffy, technical, fast, and with nary a breakdown in sight.


Meshuggah - I

One more EP, this time by Meshuggah. This is a 24mins demonstration of swedish mathcore, surprising, disturbing, technically impressive and, more than that, totally insane. Getting old, but still as solid as new. Must be something metal and furnitures have in common in Sweden.

Citizen Fish / Leftöver Crack - Deadline

Some good-ass tunes. If you like ska or punk or whatever you'll find something to enjoy here.


Isis - Demo

The first Isis demo, self-producted and released in 1998. I just found it by chance, and it makes me think today is a lucky day.


I found it on , you should take a look on this.

Jesu - Jesu

I broke up with my girlfriend tonight.
Therefore: depression songs.

Note: CD quality long album and me not giving a fuck means uploading on Megaupload. If the link dies and you still want it, shoot me an email and I'll do it up on Mediafire.

Bloodhorse - Horizoner

Sludgey stoner rock for fans of Torche, Kylesa, and the like. It's good if you like riffs.


Greymachine - Vultures Descend

Aaron Turner meets Justin Broadrick for some Brutal Indus Merzbow Inspired project. The first available track has nothing to do with what I could have expected from those two working together, but it's far from bad. It really sounds like Godflesh, which means like Isis at their beginning. Official release on August 4th, I just can't wait!

Download "Vultures Descend"

The Black Dahlia Murder - Unhallowed

At The Gates' hyped-up American cousin.


Isis - Sawblade EP

This EP is very disapointing : it came just after the Mosquito Control and The Red Sea, which are way better. But it's also one of the less known piece of work by Isis, and the Godflesh cover Streetcleaner is pretty awesome. A must-have, only for that song.

Eagle Twin - The Unkindness of Crows

These guys opened up for Sunn O))) and are signed to Southern Lord, so you probably already have a good idea of what they sound like. Doomy, droney, bluesy metal is the order of the day here, and it's damn good. Check it out.
Can't find a decent image of the cover art, so here's them.
