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!



[Album Review] “Mr. Sinister EP” by РΣ▲ϾΣ ⱧΣȊL


Album: Mr. Sinister EP

Artist: РΣ▲ϾΣ ⱧΣȊL

Genre(s): Witch house, Experimental electronic, Vaporwave

Country: New Zealand

Favorite Track: “Wahoo Paranoid”

Where to listen/buy: Bandcamp Facebook   Twitter


Holy. Smokes. Or should I say Hø£¥ $m0K€$:

New Zealand’s РΣ▲ϾΣ ⱧΣȊL brings witch house to the table and completely decimates the game with grimey dubstep wobbles with crunchy glitchy elements thrown into the mix. I’m not lying when I say that this is one of my favorite albums. This is exactly what I look for in music, and I will have this album on repeat for quite some time. Right from the first second of this 4-track album I knew I was in for an audio treat. With the short tracklist in mind, it was still a gut wrenching challenge to choose which track was my favorite. Even though this isn’t your mother’s standard for what constitutes witch house, РΣ▲ϾΣ ⱧΣȊL executes his music perfectly if you ask me.  I HIGHLY recommend you get this album right now. I mean it. Stop reading. That’s the review. What are you waiting for?



Auto Pilot is back!


So while I was perusing through my facebook wall tonight, something jumped out at me and grabbed my attention.

One of my favorite local(ish) bands Auto Pilot had posted a video update stating that their new album was about finished and that they were tracking vocals.

I had NO IDEA they were working on a new album. I haven’t really checked their facebook page since 2015 and they had still been in a bit of a hiatus if I recall correctly. And we all know how terrible facebook is with making sure page content makes it to our wall feed.

Anyways, this news has got me pretty excited. Their last album, 2008’s “House of Sleep” is literally one of my favorite albums of all time. You can check it out on Spotify HERE.


Judging from everything I have been looking at tonight, the new album will be titled “Hidden Hand” and will hopefully be dropping sometime this year or early next year (not entirely sure of the exact date as of yet).

As an added bonus, they have been vlogging their creative process during the album’s production.

So yeah! Definitely expect me to be following up on this and sharing all the new morsels of info as they arrive. Really stoked that Auto Pilot is back.

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.

Sirona launches a MASSIVE playlist showcasing underground artists. (#underground #undergroundmusic #netlabel )




Sirona Records recently launched a new music player on their website, which features HUNDREDS of tracks from Sirona releases.

When I say hundreds, I mean 228 and counting. This playlist will likely grow massively in the coming weeks.

So do your self a favor, head on over to their website to access the endless showcase of underground talent.




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.
