Yo, Can we talk about COMA CLUSTER VOID for a minute?

Coma-Cluster-Void

A few years back, a special kind of band hit my music radar. Coma Cluster Void came out of nowhere and gave me a mean right hook.

Coma Cluster Void is an avant garde/extreme metal outfit that brings bands like Gorguts, Ulcerate, Portal, and Pyrrohn to mind.

With their release of last years “Mind Cemeteries” CCV immediately quenched that everlasting thirst I have for great experimental death metal . I was happy to include them in my playlist and spin their (digital) album on the regular.

On their latest offering “Thoughts From A Stone” they take the avant garde to a another level. In Thoughts From A Stone, we hear the addition of more ambient/atmosphere filler as well as a great amount of spoken word sections. It’s a great mix, and they balance it perfectly. The pacing of the EP is impeccable, and takes you on a wild and often chaotic ride.

Now, my main reason for writing this blog article is to briefly discuss how criminally underrated this band seems to be.

I first gave Thoughts From A Stone a listen immediately upon it’s full release on youtube. (Which I though was tasty AF.) Now, over a month later I returned to give it another listen only to find out that it still has less than one thousand plays?

It’s not like Coma Cluster hasn’t gotten exposure and coverage from the internet’s top blogs. I see articles about them on Metalsucks, Metal Injection, and Pop Matters among other well established metal blogs. Yet it seems like this band is seriously going under the radar of many listeners. I think this is a mistake, and I hope/know that people are eventually going to catch on to how amazing this group is.

I look forward to following along and watching Coma Cluster Void make massive gains and reach the ranks of other great avant gard death metal acts, which they undoubtedly will.

Check out their bandcamp, facebook, and Youtube Channel. You won’t be disappointed!

Torn Flesh Records hits us with some Zelophilia, and it’s bittersweet.

LustLoathingLove-Cover

Last night I decided to check out a recently posted release at Torn Flesh Records, and low and behold it turned out to be gold .

Zelophilia can only really be described as an Avant Garde/Mathcore band. But that title really does them little justice, because this album is so much more than that. I haven’t stopped listening to it since the discovery. It’s that good.

It deals in dark themes, most of which are sexual in nature. Between the heavy/raw riffage you get these awesome Sinatra esque vocals.

Every now in then we get some narrative filler, by what sounds like a demented freak the likes of Clown from the Spawn comic books.

The production value is great, we have layers upon layers of interesting sounds. Makes for great atmosphere.

I don’t want to get into it much more, because I am still devouring this thing. But I recommend this to anyone who likes a little experimentation with their heavy.

Fucking A.
