Kolony mega post

ASHtoDust // Held Down // Rub El Hizb

ASHtoDUST

Very noisy and heavy hardcore. Coming from releases on Fallow Field and Video Disease this is definitely still as crushing.


Held Down - Gagged & Bound

Promising raw hardcore release. I think this is my favorite release from this batch.


Rub El Hizb

One track of low end heavy, raw, noise, etc. I know nothing about this band. Apparently the title is the rub el hizb symbol in text format but when I try to post it on here it messes up this post. I just called it s/t.

Cadaver Dog - Rehearsal 8.12.12

Cadaver Dog - Rehearsal 8.12.12
self released

I feel hard pressed to write anything about the last 2 posts I've done because clocking in at under 4 minutes this is a literal fart upon the music world; not really meant to be spoken about at length. But if these tracks are an indicator of future releases then I am on board on both of these rehearsals. While this is definitely very short I am definitely a fan. I can't wait to hear the next full output from both of these bands.

Civilized - Rehearsal 8.26.12

Civilized - Rehearsal 8.26.12
self released

This is like a total of 4 minutes of music so I will keep it short. What a 4 minutes this is though, damn. A rough hardcore release. STRAIGHT EDGE. I wish this was actually the artwork, though I like the art it came with. Probably the best music release I got from YA this time around. Call me a fan.

Already Dead - "I Want To Watch You Rot"

My coveted Youth Attack package came in the mail yesterday! How does that work? Wasn't yesterday a mail holiday? That's sketchy. The post office sucks by my house, they lost a Cold Cave test press with delivery confirmation on it a few weeks ago. Once I move again I'm getting a PO box. I guess I should talk about this tape now. 2 very grim and decomposed tracks. It sounds exactly like the title and the names of the tracks. I don't have a lot to say about this.

Deathstench ‎– N.O.X

Deathstench ‎– N.O.X

One of the latest releases from NL based label Zeitgeists. Side A is heavy blackened noise and side b is more dark ambient. Does that fall under the reign of blackened noise? If you like blackened noise this is a very solid release. Regardless, all Zeitgeists releases have a very distinct feel to them. It could be the elaborate packaging (I seriously don't think I can fold this release back up how it was originally), it could be the price, it could be how difficult it is to pick any release up second hand, but this is one of the finest labels "in the game." I ordered this direct from the label and it came out to $15 shipped. Zeitgeists have several new releases up, each limited to 50 (I believe), I strongly urge you to pick up at least one of them. Like I said, they will be extremely hard to find once they aren't available from the label anymore.

Filth - Beyond The Five Senses

Filth - Beyond The Five Senses

Very heavy and weird industrial-esque power electronics. "Destructive" comes to mind when trying to describe this. "Play at maximum volume" the insert reads. Fusty Cunt as a label always delivers but this was the only tape I bought from this batch. Looking back I should have just bought them all (as should you) but I got a couple of larger things from my wantlist recently so I calmed down slightly with my tape buying in December/January. But don't fear, I still have a disposable income!
