Limited pressings when you can easily do enough to accommodate your fan base are really dumb. Like it's fine if you don't realize that you're going to sell out fast, but then if you flat out say you aren't going to do a repress I think that's kind of shitty.
i picked up a few things, while out on the road, that have been keeping it real for me, this week.
Call The Paramedics - You Better Bring a Helmet basically, it's GG Allin meets Anal Cunt, From Atlantic City, NJ. straight up ultra-violent deathgrind. live, these dudes are even more nuts than I am. drugs , alcohol, fire breathing, bloodsoaked self-abuse, and a level of anti-PC sarcasm that is seldom rivaled. off the stage, they're pussycats, and are actually not quite the monsters that they are made out to be... or maybe they are, and they just liked us, and decided not to kill us.
Cough - Sigillum Luciferi Slower! Slower! ultra-heavy stoner sludge metal from RVA. pretty damn hot once it gets rolling. kind of has a Noothgrush / Grief kind of feel to it, in regards to sound, speed, and style. i smoke up, and turn this shit up loud. live, these guys were even slower and heavier than this record. my heart stopped beating, it was so slow. i should probably also mention the croony Burning Witch influence and the writhing eyehategod worship. good shit, indeed.
Javelina - S/T This fucking CD rules! I had a burn that i had been listening to for a while, and was pretty excited to get a real one, when we played with them, earlier this week. Elements of a lot of different influences are apparent, but NOT strictly adhered to (think Buzzov*en, Sleep, Baroness, etc). These guys put on an incredible show, and for a band with as heavy a sound that they have, they keep the tempo up to a reasonably energetic level... and are all extremely talented dudes.
v/a - TCKF v.1 2xLP issuance has arrived. i was stoked to see them finally get here. the vinyl sounds good, and you know this. 1st pressing has no labels, and the Ronald McDonald inlay art as the cover. Booklet art is duplexed onto a single sheet.
