Bifid Corpse - Consuming Death (2019)

Consuming Death the new Bifid Corpse release (digital only this one so far) it's just four short traks but like their previous ones it's just so good. Death/grind at its finest, with a monsttruous dirty groove. Heavily recommended stuff. It's definitely time for an album guys!

JK Flesh - In Your Pit (EP 2019)

JK Flesh is the alias of Justin Broadrick (Godflesh, Jesu, etc.) for releasing his techno music, yes techno, but it's Justin Broadrick and you can expect heavy, menacing industrial techno, like in his new EP In Your Pit, four tracks (including a good remix from his friend Kevin Martin aka The Bug, who is also releasing the EP on his Pressure label). Quality stuff as usual.

G.L.O.S.S - Girls Living Outside Of Society's Shit demo (2015) + Trans day of revenge (2016)

OK those two release (a demo tape and an EP) were released in 2015 and 2016, and now G.L.O.S.S doesn't exists anymore, but this was one of the very best recent old school hardcore band, so I just had to post about it. If you like hardcore don't sleep on this...

Hold Me Down - st (EP 2019)

It's been a long time I haven't been as excited by some industrial metal, this first self titled release (a tape released by Sentient Ruin Laboratories) from Hold Me Down (with a guy from AMERICAN, also on Sentient Ruin) is really good. It reminds me of Ministry and NIN from the nineties, but with also some power electronics to make it even harder. If you like this kind of stuff I see absolutely no reason you wouldn't really enjoy Hold Me Down. Mechanical machine drums beats and guitars, screaming, and harsh noise. Done the way it should be and with impressive result. My only "complain" is that I want more. Looking forward to listen to an album from them.

Full of Hell - Weeping Choir (2019)

Full of Hell were among the bands that set the trend in today's hardcore to add  more violence with elements from extreme metal and noise. with their new album, Weeping Choir, their first one with Relapse records, they are making sure no doubt is left they are also among the best and fiercest doing that mix. Wepping Choir is probably their most brutal album, where the hrash noise parts feels like they are the quiet moments. easily one of the most striking hardcore/metal album of the year so far.

Lovely Wife | Snakes Don't Belong in Alaska - split (2018)

Newcastle is maybe UK's capital of psychedelic heavy rock and this split between Lovely Wife and Snakes Don't Belong in Alaska is another proof. On their track LW are more on a drone/noise exploration whereas SDBIA on their two tracks are a bit more melodic (for the guitars and the vocals) and dynamic. Both are deep in the heavy psych stoner sound and takes you on a nice trip. Good stuff.

Progress of Inhumanity - Rotating Misery (2019)

Third album from the Greek crust/grinders Progress of Inhumanity, six year after the previous one (HERE is the review I did back then, with also the interview we did by mail). Rotating Misery is a nice piece of tightly and efficiently executed grind/punk, no originality but they do it right.
