Fuck The Facts

Originally taking shape in the late 90’s as the solo project of guitarist Topon Das, Canada’s own Fuck The Facts has evolved over the years into one of the underground’s most formidable grind/noise outfits. With countless split releases and EP’s, with the likes of Hewhocorrupts, Leng Tch’e and many others, as well as eight devastating [&hellip

Dire Omen

I recently acquired your EP, ‘Severing Soul from Flesh’ for my distro…what a crushing release! Give us an introduction to this powerful collection of rituals! Connor: This release was about us finally finding our sound, especially after our becoming a three piece. We wanted to nail our new philosophy and sound as a band in [&hellip

Fuck The Facts – Amer

“Chaos is a friend of mine.” – Bob Dylan So many members of the human population are repulsed by things that bear a chaotic quality. To some, any type of disorder, or straying from the norm, in the world we live in equates to evil and an unwelcome ugliness. It’s my guess that this type [&hellip

Blinded by Faith – Chernobyl Survivor

This Canadian quartet’s newest offering has been sitting on my desk for a bit too long. Something about required more than a single listen for me to really get a solid appreciation for it. Perhaps the cover art is a little too ‘CG’ or Blinded by Faith’s logo is much too legible to seem credible. [&hellip

Paroxsihzem – S/T

Par-ox-ysm: noun: \ˈpa-rək-ˌsi-zəm also pə-ˈräk-\ 1: a fit, attack or sudden increase or recurrence of symptoms (as of a disease) : Convulsion 2: a sudden violent emotion or action: Outburst I think either of those two definitions (kindly provided by www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/paroxysm) are sufficient for giving an impression of what you can expect from Paroxsihzem’s self-titled [&hellip

IRON DOGS – COLD BITCH

You can probably bet they got their name from a song off of the first Exciter album, but then again maybe I’m wrong and just going off of instinct. Iron Dogs offer a solid retro sound that instead of trying to ape old German thrash or Nuclear Assault like so many other bands, take a [&hellip

Evil Wrath – A Pact with Satan…The Fall of Man (Virus Productions 2012)

This vile little tape is a compilation of selected tracks from a few of their early Demos: A.M.S.G. (2006) and L’essence Du Mal (2003); and a few from their 2009 release, Chaotical Invasion; making it a savory taster of vicious and well rounded black metal lunacy. As of the last few years I’ve been getting [&hellip

Revenge – Scum. Collapse. Eradication

Out of the ashes of Conqueror came Revenge at the turn of the century, and each subsequent release has been some of the most bellicose and savage blackdeath with a raw and devastating feel totally unique to the band. War-obsessed and completely misanthropic in nature, the band is now solely spearheaded by J. Read with Vermin of [&hellip

Forteresse – Crepescule d’Octobre

Forged in similar flames of past glories and lost cultures as the Scandinavian hordes, this Quebec based trio blazoning sets their own black flames to their heritage through epic and majestic black metal. The usual descriptors: dense, foggy, forestry, atmospheric, mystical, epic, cold, frosty, grim…blah blah apply here, but there’s a Hell of a lot [&hellip

Untimely Demise – City Of Steel

Ah, Canada…our neighbors to the north, the home of countless hockey fanatics, mostly free healthcare, the highly-irritating songstress/banshee known as Céline Dion, mostly free healthcare, and the longest coast line in the world. The whole damn country was once made the somewhat undeserved target of ridicule in that South Park movie (who can forget the [&hellip
