Track Premiere: The Bug Vs. Earth – ‘Don’t Walk These Streets’

March 9, 2017

“‘Don’t Walk These Streets’ was really written as a reaction to feeling absolutely alienated and set adrift in the surreal manifestation of the American Dream that is L.A,” Kevin Martin says. “It’s a smacked out jazz, fuzzed up trip, into a social void, that I wrote after realizing there is zero safety net in the States for anyone that falls off the gravy train. And as a pedestrian walking a lot around the city in my stay during the recording of Concrete Desert, I attempted to conjure the feeling of sheer dread that I felt wandering across the Hollyweird landscape.”

TRACK PREMIERE: MUSTER UP THE COURAGE TO CHECK OUT COWARDICE’S “ERODING ETHOS”

December 7, 2016

Prefer your doom nasty and crusty as fuck? Well, you’re gonna absolutely love capital-“C” Cowardice then. (Your level of adoration for lowercase-“c” cowardice, on the other hand, is a personal matter, but do feel free to confide what you feel you must in the comments section below…) The New Jersey quintet’s admirably expansive and unpredictable debut full-length Without Condolence strives, roughly speaking, to bridge the gap between early Paradise Lost, Black Sabbath circa Vol. 4, and latter day Gorguts — a perfect backdrop for vocalist John Jones’ feral blackened death shriek-growl-shriek.
