Album Review: Ufomammut – Hidden

If you’re looking to take a chemical vacation, there’s no better band than Italy’s UFOMAMMUT to provide a soundtrack for your trip. Some might consider that statement frivolous, but I stand by it. These guys have a groove so heavy that even GOD would be spacing out to it. 2024 marks 25 years for this mega-heavy band and Hidden is a fitting landmark. Holy Timothy Leary, but this thing is THICK! I’ve heard dirty bass sounds in my time, but this takes the ever-lovin’ cake. Even in comparison with UFOMAMMUT’s prior work, this is totally abyssal. It almost doesn’t need […]

The song is found on the band’s debut, the Thorns EP, which was released through Neurosis’ label Neurot Recordings in February. A new voice steps forward to put our concerns and frustrations into words; that voice is GUILTLESS.

Album Review: False Fed – Let Them Eat Fake

You toss the “formed by members of” tag in front of so many bands, and it often ends up feeling like a resting-on of laurels at best and a “Hey, give us a pass if it sucks, alright? This isn’t our real band anyway!” at worst. But when the ranks of FALSE FED’s “…members of” include members of DISCHARGE, BROKEN BONES, AMEBIX and MINISTRY, you’ve got my attention at least. Kicking off with JP Parsons’ pulsating bassline, snapping drums and a guitar that conjures the much-missed DEAD ARTIST SYNDROME, and MAGAZINE, but with Jeff “JJ” Janiak’s vocals holding more a […]

GRAILS: Neurot Recordings To Reissue Band’s First Album, The Burden Of Hope, In September; Preorders Available Now

Neurot Recordings will reissue The Burden Of Hope, the debut album from multidimensional sonic explorers Grails, in late September, twenty years after its original release through the label. Originally formed under the moniker Laurel Canyon, the name of the group was changed to GRAILS to coincide with the original release of The Burden Of Hope in October 2003. Intuitively communicated and entirely instrumental, the band’s instrumentation collides with sober melodies and massive emotion. They deliver their fair share of ambient noise – shivery violins, a trickle of a high-hat, the amplified scrape of a guitar string – but rounded out […]

“Janaka Stucky is extraordinary, and his work riveting.” – Jimmy Page Neurot Recordings today unveils Ascend Ascend: Janaka Stucky Live In Seattle With Lori Goldston from prolific writer, poet, and performer JANAKA STUCKY.

Goldston, known for her work with several acts – including Nirvana, Cat Power, and Earth – provides otherworldly layers of distortion and natural reverb over Stucky’s dirge-like vocal […]

Many believe he was a genius, and sing his sad, brilliant songs. Imagine if he was still creating music, in a time when artists themselves decide what to release and when […]

Album Review: Ufomammut – Fenice

When a band eight albums deep into a storied career has not only the honesty to look itself in the mirror and admit it doesn’t like what it sees but the boldness to admit such to its fans, that counts for something. And that’s exactly what UFOMAMMUT did during its thankfully brief hiatus over 2020. Some even wondered if there would be another album. Well, founders Urlo and Poia have returned, new drummer Levre in tow, and Fenice is the result. ‘Dust’ begins, distant waves, heartbeat pulse of rhythm, electronic blips, a band coming back from coma/hibernation, let us say. […]
