Contingent - Demo

Contingent - Demo
self released

I picked this up at the recent Boston Strangler/Rival Mob/Peacebreakers gig. New Boston band band featuring members of possibly Who Killed Spikey Jacket and Bloodkrow Butcher? Maybe, I honestly don't really know for sure, just know it's featuring a bunch of Boston bands you like. This is pretty cool though, not like the stuff I usually upload but I just wanted to remind everyone that Boston has all the best bands. This sounds like UK 82 and Blitz, that's all I can really muster up to say about it.

Bizarre Uproar ‎– Putrid Live Activities 2011-2012

Bizarre Uproar ‎– Putrid Live Activities 2011-2012

I wasn't going to post this but seeing Metallic Imagery post a boxset from the Rita encouraged me to do so. He posts pretty noisy things and actually is pretty eloquent in writing, unlike me.

You should be familiar with Bizarre Uproar, but I just want to remind everyone how much of the real deal this project is. It was deleted (I believe) but Mr. BU used to run a tumblr called Puudeli where he posted photos/video and such from domination sessions with his partner Fallen Angel. Truly fucked up shit. Everything portrayed BU is actually into; true filth. BU started Filth & Violence because of that reason. This is a recent music video of his, for newcomers http://just.eroprofile.com/play/Yti3h2eYUy8g3ir

Anyways, this release is 8 sets. Some live shows, some rehearsals. Very comprehensive, true fans only. Sound quality is pretty great for live sets. I wouldn't start here if you're just getting into Bizarre Uproar, maybe try Rape Africa and read some background information about BU. I got this from Purple Blossoms who distributes all F&V releases in the US and is a very nice guy.

Pleasure Island / Scant split

Pleasure Island / Scant split

I don't know anything about the artists on this or even the label besides he put out Oaken Tower and that was pretty cool. This is also a first for me because I emailed the person who runs the label and asked him if it was okay to post this. Anyways, both sides of this split are fantastic. Pleasure Island's side builds up to a full wall of sound and Scant's side keeps it dark ambient. Honestly I wasn't expecting much when I ordered this but I'm very glad I did. Both of these artists are ones to watch, and this label! This is now sold out but be sure to keep an eye out for future releases and order the ones he already has, one is only $3.

Circle Of Ouroborus - The Final Egg

Circle Of Ouroborus - The Final Egg

I haven't really given this one a proper listen yet (I'm listening as I write this, I ripped this while someone was sleeping on my couch), so realize my opinion on this will probably change shortly, but I'm busy for the next few days and wanted to post this tonight. Anyways, if you didn't know I'm a huge fan of Circle Of Ouroborus. They release a ton of music that is all pretty great, but when they hit they really hit. This sounds like the sort of stuff they've been doing with Eleven Fingers and Abrahadabra, but I don't think it's as strong as those releases. Both of those records had to grow on me though. And don't think this is throwaway material too, this is a really solid album. This is still widely available so pick it up before it's too late!

Serpent Crest ‎– And Whose Ashes Still Glow

Serpent Crest ‎– And Whose Ashes Still Glow
Yoke Of Christ


Dom originally put these up on Hospital as an incentive to buy older, overpriced cds that never sold. I think he was asking like $50 for a bunch of shit like cds and these tapes. I love Hospital, I buy everything, and obviously I love Yoke Of Christ, but that was shitty so I held off on buying these. Finally the time came recently that I found both of these at a reasonable price. I started listening/recording the other tape that came with this one and the audio cuts out at one point, does this happen to anyone else with that release? Let me know. I liked this release more than the other one anyways. The highlight of this for me is the opening 6 minute melodic track. Yoke Of Christ and melodic seem like opposites but it works really well on this release. Don't worry though, this is still as raw as ever.
