Agoraphobic Nosebleed return with “Arc” EP in 2016

I remember discovering Agoraphobic Nosebleed‘s Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope with my drummer friend Zac Shaw with a sense of stoned glee and an atom level knowledge that somehow life would never be the same. It was one of my earliest introductions to that level of musical insanity. I grew up on Big Black and Jesus Lizard records but Agoraphobic was another level of “that is intense” all together. For people who love to find bands that make other people say “What the fuck are you listening too?” and run in horror, this is a great place to start.

Since the band got Katherine Katz (ex-Salome), they have gotten somehow even more rad. The Richard Johnson and Scott Hull tag team of madness finds a perfect foil in Katherine’s insane screams. New record ARC thankfully drops almost a year to the day that my father died and I am thanking the grind gods for giving me something really distracting I am bound to enjoy musically during what is surely going to be a week of seriously bad mood swings for me.

It looks like this 3 song EP will focus on the slower side of the band, as it is not that many tracks but clocks in at about twenty plus minutes. Color me stoked as fuck, since sister band Pig Destroyer’s recent Mass & Volume EP was a beast.

Pre Order this fucker HERE right now!

  Critically acclaimed Bay Area post rock collective AMBER ASYLUM will release its new album, Sin Eater, on December 4 via Prophecy Productions. The band’s seventh studio album was recorded at Ear Hammer Studios (OM, Pallbearer, Vhol) in Oakland, CA and produced, mixed and mastered by frontwoman, multi-instrumentalist and soprano vocalist Kris T. Force. The subject matter that helped inspire the album is the cleansing ritual of “sin eating”. Today, Noisey premieres the new AMBER ASYLUM track, “Executioner”; listen now at this location.

“Sin Eating still exists as a death ritual where the Sin Eater consumes a meal or ‘corpse cake’ that is passed over the body of the deceased or laid on the chest,” Force explains. “The meal represents the sins of the deceased and once consumed by the Sin Eater the sins are released thereby allowing the soul to rest in peace. The album speaks of this process of taking on the pain of others to set them free.”

In honor of 20 years of the mystifying group, the label Prophecy Productions will also be releasing a new set  Anthology  at the same time as the Bay Area chamber group’s new Sin Eater record. It consists of twelve CDs, containing the band’s entire work including numerous compilation tracks, singles and more partially unreleased bonus songs, topped by an accompanying 80-page book bound in leather with all lyrics.

PYRRHON is one of those bands that I love but whom for whatever reason I haven’t written enough about. Then I postponed writing about them out of guilt, haha. This is what happens when you blog too much. Kind of like years ago how I loved the first Pavement indie rock album so much I was afraid the rest would let me down, I heard some PYRRHON awhile back and was like, “daaaamn, son.” Then I hid from them in a medicated stupor. Afraid that I was drawn to this madness. But it is a liberating and necessary madness. “Turing’s Revenge” is nothing short of music as liberation.

Suffice to say, I am an idiot. Or maybe I didn’t want the world to end from their manic, psycho death metal spreading like an untamed virus.

Well, whatever. I guess I just don’t like the human race enough anymore to protect them or want to support the band better. It was a real drag they were dropped from Relapse after releasing The Mother of Virtues, a freak fest that actual schizophrenia, Gigan or true crime fans might understand but other people who cling to the death metal of yesteryear might just be ripped apart by. It perhaps didn’t help that the record had a sort of pregnant looking female creature on the cover with eyeballs and bugs swarming all over it. Like this one Trap Them t shirt on either Shirts and Destroy or Shirtkiller that no one ever buys that has a strangled baby on the shirt, it’s probably not gonna sell as much as the new 5 Seconds of Summer t shirt or some bubblegum crap.

Let’s face it. People have horrible taste (dead baby Trap Them shirt aside, cuz even I thought that was a pretty hideous design and I revere that band).
But I mean, people like gaudy, ugly, tacky horrible bands and their stupid neon designs and fake stories and fame pandering.

PYRRHON don’t do that stuff. They tour hard and hustle and write real music. They are almost apologetic when a press release describes their new EP as ,
It’s kind of like Daughters, Brutal Truth, Merzbow and Autopsy created a batch of catchy-by-reverse-psychology songs, and then promised to never speak of them again.

They forgot to mention how “Viral Content” is like a sand paper condom skullfuck while Scratch Acid and Cephalic Carnage party like rockstars around a bonfire of melted, previously boned and discarded skulls.

SO what I’m saying is, please don’t let this band go away. Go stream their newish EP Growth Without End, the best thing they’ve perhaps done yet (although as an Invisibles fan I’m still partial to their old song “King of All Tears”. I get scared just thinking that name. But new jam  “Forget Yourself” is as brilliant as death spazz grind gets, barely contained chaos.
