November 16, 2016

Lord, Bologna duo Zeus! sure isn’t looking to make it easy for the File Under peeps to do their job with “Enemy E Core,” a proggy, fuzzed out noise punk take on math rock off the band’s Three One G release MOTOMONOTONO that sort of gives off a Rorschach-wandering-into-a-Pelican-practice-a-decade-ago vibe.

In Person Aural Devastation: Author & Punisher Live

September 16, 2013

Decibel has made no secret of our love for the idiosyncratic have-to-see-it-to-believe-it one-man doom behemoth Author & Punisher.
