Thursday’s news, space jammers. First order of business,  a hearty don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out to “EPA Administrator” aka corrupt scum Scott Pruitt. The GOP will forever own the stain of climate denial and corrupt profiteering from endangering humanity recklessly.

Secondly, Therese Okoumou, you are the embodying spirit of a more perfect union, the right to protest injustice and the hope for change to stop the destruction of any semblance of American dignity before we can heal our deep trauma as a nation at ideological war between the forces of Good and the hideous gaslighting White Supremacists who revise history and quake in terror of progressive change. Thank you so much, true American hero. You have more bravery and dignity than the entire GOP and all their supporters in your pinky.

The below image, reshared by Bernice King, is as iconic an American image as I have ever seen in my 40 years.

I couldn’t in good faith just write about (even inspiring or revolutionary) music today without acknowledging the power of this moment. Now, let me direct you to some metal news to stir your spirits.

The new Deafheaven album can be streamed at NPR today! Ordinary Corrupt Human Love is available to curious ears in full RIGHT HERE. I have been crazy busy and so have not heard it yet myself but am gonna put it on in the background as I write this. The intro of “You Without End” that kicks things off has some somber but kind of warm piano and some post-rock vibes before a spoken sample thing and I am digging this mellow expansive beginning so far. It’s nice to be truthful and absorb stuff at your own pace rather than feel like you have to cram an experience in just to get a review shoved out. But anyway, I’m really looking forward to hearing how these guys have evolved as they have grown on me with time. So far I have to say already that this tune is kind of the coolest thing I have heard from them yet and is straddling some more interesting and colorful lines for my tastes.

True punks Cliterati have a new EP called Nuked At Birth you can savor over at Cvlt Nation at present! One of the most uncompromising, fun and important bands in 2018’s underground, Cliterati are miles above most of the pack in terms of importance, relevance and perhaps most importantly…anthemic fucking music!

The latest from the Oregon-grown hardcore punk collective featuring Poison Idea, Voetsek, and Murderess alumni –  this EP serves as a precursor to the band’s split with Violation Wound, set for release via Tankcrimes later this month, and includes one original track as well as the band’s scathing renditions of L7’s “Fast & Frightening” and Cro-Mags’ “Hard Times.” Holy tofurkin’ awesome, batgirl!

Comments CLITERATI screamer, Ami Lawless, “We’re stoked on this free EP with the title track also being the name of our upcoming summer tour. We also have a new Nuked At Birth shirt design to complete the trifecta! The other two tracks are covers that we sometimes do live. This EP was all done in one day. We just decided to have a fun recording/mixing/mastering session, no pressure, and give it to the people who’ve been supporting our band since the demo. The lyrics to ‘Nuked At Birth’ are loosely based on the book Geek Love. Go read it!”

Ami, I used to have a copy of Geek Love and regret I never finished reading it. Thanks for reminding me! The first half was pretty good and someone stole it a long ass time ago, hahaha.

Hear Nuked At Birth, courtesy of Cvlt Nation, at THIS LOCATION.

Download the EP for the cool price of FREE at the official CLITERATI Bandcamp page HERE.

Cast The Stone

American death/black metallers CAST THE STONE and David Hall (Uneasy Sleeper, PortalThe Melvins) unleash a video for their cover of Indfestdead’s (Dan SwanöJesusatan”. The track appears on the band’s forthcoming six-track EP “Empyrean Atrophy”, due for release on August 31st via Agonia Records.

This shit fuckin’ rocks and the David Hall (Portal, Melvins) video is really nuts and visually well done but prob needs a genuine serious warning if you are epileptic. Intense!

Watch List: Metal Riot top 15 up and coming acts for 2017

Posted by Metal Riot on Thursday, April 6, 2017 at 4:07 PM (PST)

Succumb

Thought it would be cool today to compile a list for you of the best 15 bands we feel who are on the way up and are on the verge of or already doing incredible things for the metal, rock, industrial , punk or underground community in general. The criteria is that they can only have up to two albums out under the project name, thus some pretty important bands like, for example, Incendiary, Oathbreaker , Auroch, Yellow Eyes or Junius alas at this point have enough releases to not be considered as “new”.  This list is a matter of opinion based on bands we feel are making great work, big waves and/or changing things for the better! It also aims to cover a wide variety, so you will not find all fifteen as death metal bands because that would not be representative of the scene as a whole.

The list contains new faces, old friends in very new projects and more. The fact that most of the choices ended up American bands was not intentional, just who is exciting us the most right now. It is all about great music and people who don’t have that many albums under their belt yet for the amount of buzz they are getting for the band (haha, Gridfailure would be on here but Dave already is cranking out releases by the boatload, for example) as well as the power of their accomplishments.

Anyhow, with no further ado, let’s focus on some positive movers and shakers here in the now frontier.

Cliterati kick off West Coast Tour

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 10:49 AM (PST)

We wanna take an extra moment out of our busy schedules thinking about death metal as we vainly deny the onset of adulthood here to shout out crust punk moshtastic monarchs of the moment Cliterati here as they kick off their new West Coast tour. Ami Lawless fuckin’ rules and this band is one of the best. They already feel like a real, cohesive unit in a short amount of time. That’s what happens when you combine good people with a real punk and metal pedigree/actually caring about what you’re doing. So much more refreshing than the 800th million stale over processed tech death/deathcore promo or interchangeable wankers.

A kick ass recent interview we did with Cliterati was one of the ones that sadly was murdered when we suffered a site malware attack that ended up in us losing about a year of content here…and it was  irreplaceable due to the original recording being gone and me not having backed it up well enough like a fucking asshole. Much chagrin and sorrow…BUT, we can tell you to check the shit out of this tour and become ten times cooler in the process just for being there! The band have a lot in store working with beloved and true af label Tank Crimes, so stay alert!

Tour dates below.
