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


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!



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


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”


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.
