Yo, can we talk about “Living Wall” for a sec?

a2295531935_10

When I think about Living Wall, Lovecraft comes to mind.

In most of Lovecraft’s stories, some poor fool discovers a disturbing cosmic revelation in which their brain can’t handle and they are driven into madness. I’m certain that if this madness was interpreted into audio form, you would have Living Wall.

Imagine a brutal heavy deathcore track. Now, imagine that same track sped up one hundred percent. NOW, imagine a wall of noise on top of that sped up deathcore song.

It’s fucking insanity.

I’m not usually a fan of noise, at least it’s not something I listen to leisurely. I have always admired it as an art form. However, there is something so good, so appealing lurking inside the Living Wall bandcamp that I find myself returning to it often to subject myself to the chaos. And I love every second of it.

Living Wall is the brain child of Jason Ryan Holmes II (Bong Rips for Jesus, Hypodermix Dreamer 1999, Mother Network, Amoebosis, Viscera Gel Productions, and about a hundred other projects. Jesus I can’t keep up with this fucking guy!)

The bandcamp sports two very short releases: The Breaking Wheel, and DEMO. Both of these releases combined doesn’t even reach a run time of ten minutes. In grindcore fashion, the “songs”  only run about thirty seconds to a minute. In fact, it would take you longer to read the track names than listening to the actual track, with names such as “Tincture of Silver and Lead Poured Meticulously Into the Captive Orifice Which Spoke So Ill Upon Thy House: Clogged and Pressurized Internal Toxic Suffocation”. But it all plays into the anxiety induced theme. The songs themselves are so incoherent and distorted that you can put these albums on loop, and just sit there until your head twists off your shoulders, and you wouldn’t know where the fucking thing starts or where it stops. (Trust me, I’ve done it.)

So, if you’re into that sick twisted shit, stop in and give the bandcamp a whirl. It’s awesome.

 

Potato Hate Explosion releases new album “Flowerviolence”

a0179931076_10

So earlier today the self described “one man spud-core powerhouse” Potato Hate Explosion self released a brand new album titled “Flowerviolence” (a play off power violence, duh)

Now you may be kind of caught up on the funny potato inspired project name.  I know I was until a few years back, until of course I pressed play on the music track.

Potato Hate Explosion produces quality, absolutely brutal, in your face metal. And even though I have only played four tracks off the new album so far,  Flowerviolence is just as great (and in many ways greater) as the previous albums.

This is by no means a review of the album, but as the music fills my ears at this very moment, I’m definitely giving Flowerviolence a serious headband of approval (cause yeah, fuck numbers, stars, and thumbs).

Now what to expect.

Like I said, brutal face melting, extreme metal. But also, expect the song to abruptly break into some sick trap beats coupled with classic video game esque segments, and some occasional ambient fillers.

Man this some seriously sick tuneage.

I’m going to sit here and thoroughly enjoy this. You go download Potato Hate Explosion’s new album Flowerviolence. You won’t regret it.

New Life, New Look. The Tunnel is back.

I guess it was only a matter of time.

This blog was pretty much abandoned about three or more years ago. Last night, the realization hit me like a ton of bricks, this outlet is still needed and must be utilized. Thus, I spent the day giving this blog and it’s social media counterparts a grim new face lift.

Slowly but surely, I would like the content to start flowing from this blog unto your screens. I will be looking for new shovel bums to help dig this tunnel and shed light on all mediums in the underground. (If you have interest in contributing, shoot me an email)

I’ve got my trusty shovel, it’s time once again to DIG THE TUNNEL.

 

Master Toad – Chaos EP Floppy

Yeah I Know It Sucks


artist: Master Toad
title: Chaos EP Floppy Disk
keywords: lobit, ambient, drone, noise
format: Floppy Diskette
label: Dark Forest Media http://darkforestmedia.bandcamp.com/

When good taste in music meets up with a lobit fetish, things gets excited. But when those two are settled down on a true lovable floppy diskette our enthusiasm goes slightly out of control! Alarm bells start to ring and the inner Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah’s sofa comes out! Tongues start to go wild, slime splatters around and joyful rays of happiness rush through the body!

Can you feel it? Good music in lobit on a floppy diskette for sure sets my world on fire and upside down like David Bowie in Labyrinth. Don’t you want to touch it? Lick it? Hold it in your fingers and insert it in an authentic  floppy drive?

To top it off; it’s not your regular piece of good music, it’s the…

The Musk-rat Cult – The Black And White Album (SIRO104)

Yeah I Know It Sucks

The Musk-Rat Cult - The Black And White Album

Artist: The Musk-rat Cult
Title: The Black And White Album
Label: Sirona-Records
Catalog #: SIRO104
Keywords: Psychedelic Drone Ambient, Experimental, Electronic
Reviewer: RTF

The Musk-rat Cult is a shadowy organization out of Västerås, Sweden led by its mysterious bearded leader who is also behind the project OSIS and perhaps a few others. His dark, bushy beard tells of his infinite travels through time, space, and lands of which we cannot even dream, and he has translated this knowledge into psychedelic drone ambient rituals centered around the ultimate and oldest dichotomy: that of black and white. In true drone fashion, the seven pieces that make up this almost-fifty-minute full length are based around simplistic repeated phrases, muted held tones, and lots of echo. Spacey, subtle, and often rather sparse, these tracks are not so much songs as slowly unfolding emotions. A wise, fully-bearded sage, the leader of the acolyte Musk-rats has…

GREEN HELL: A JAY CRIMSON FILM (Now Showing!)

TUNNEL TO THE UNDERGROUND & CRIMSON’S CORONER PRESENTS

GREEN HELL: A JAY CRIMSON FILM

Ladies and Gents, we present to you GREEN HELL: A JAY CRIMSON FILM.

Two drug addicts in search of their next fix unintentionally stumble upon a strange experimental liquid that alters reality and brings the EVIL out of people.

This movie was written and directed by Tunnel to the Underground’s very own Jay Crimson (noclassjay3x) who writes Crimson’s Coroner, and was edited by me (justinthomassquires).

Jay approached me at the beginning of the summer (2013) with a movie he had filmed back in 2006 and 2007. He had a very rough edit of the movie and wanted to re edit and reshape the entire thing. After review of his rough cut I gladly jumped on board.

I began heavy post production at the end of the summer and worked into late October. After we finished post production we had three local showings where the movie was received well (Special thanks to Bryan Keefe for being our projectionist). 

Now we are happy to share this movie with the entire world.

TELL ALL YOUR FUCKING FRIENDS. ❤
