Seized - Seized

Well, at least I'm back faster than usual.

This is Seized and...fuck I forgot what they sound like, one sec...

Alright, got it. Seized sounds almost like a slower Man Is The Bastard, thanks in no small part to three (count em) bass guitars, and no normal guitarist. Really thick and heavy sound that tends to plod along at a sludge pace, but every so often picks up in to a rocking melody. Odd. Skipping around in tracks just now to get a feel left me underwhelmed, but I remember specifically listening to this at work and thinking "Damn, this is good. Think I have a new upload" so here it is. Don't trust my description, trust my memory that this is awesome.

Constant Doubt - 2010 Demo

What what what? TWO posts? Yes.

Constant Doubt is the band of a cool guy over on the VF punk forums. Since I'm mod there and he actually knows what the fuck he's talking about and doesn't start shit, I'm posting his demo here. It's also not too bad, so there's that too. Production is utter crap and feedback permeates the entire sound (sounds almost like it was recorded live, not in a studio), but if you like noisy/discordant hardcore, you probably wouldn't mind it at all. I mean, I'll be honest, it's not the ZOMG BEST HARDCORE RECORD EVAR, but fuck, it's a DIY release by a friends band, it has some nice slow sludgy parts that almost border on early Swans and it's fucking free, so who gives a shit. It's a competent album and that's all that fucking matters.

So it's been brought to my attention that there actually isn't any production at all, and the whole thing really was recorded live. Onto a camcorder. I'm honestly surprised it doesn't sound worse knowing that.

About fuck...

I said fuck a whole lot in the last post. It's like I'm trying to meet some quota I feel behind on during my time away from here.

Fuck it.

Blah, not gonna say shit about "oh maybe I'm back, maybe I'm not" because fuck if I know. Point is, I'm here now, and with something awesome.

Glasses is a German hardcore band, and the best way I can put it is it's a fucking female fronted Ghostlimb. RIDICULOUSLY angry and pissed off, but fucking melodic as all hell too. Found them through when I asked for a Ghostlimb/Swarrrm/Skarp station, and this is pretty much the single best thing it could have shit out into my eager ears. 'Your Terms' is one of the catchiest fucking pieces of rage I've ever heard, and the broad fronting them has some scary raspy "I fucking hate you and will kill you with sound all Maub'Dib style motherfucker" vocals going on, and it rules. Follow this blog enough and you know I have a aural hard-on for chick vocalists who can actually fucking do vocals, and this girl fucking delivers.

Enjoy you miscreants.
