Sudestada: Yo soy el mar

November 30, 2018
viralstampede

With the sewing together of hardcore, punk and post hardcore, Sudestada creates a sound that is equal parts heavy handed, atmospheric and melodic. Yo soy el mar is the title of their newest offering, and within this piece of work you come to greet ten full tracks of ballistic hardcore madness. Nearly from the jump you become enveloped in a romping heavy sound that is sure to get your neck bending. The eight tracks that are sandwiched between the intro and the outro are well performed and written, creating a cohesive, fluid and well  rounded offering that you are sure to come back to.

Sudestada lulls you in to a false sense of security by providing you with a somewhat atmospheric intro before really diving in to the meat of their record. After the short intro passes, Sudestada hits you with a barrage of hardcore sickness, one right after another. Each track plays well together creating an overall cohesive sound that keeps you head banging and your neck cranking. There hardly are any pauses between cuts as Sudestada keeps the hardcore train rolling from one track to the next never really gifting you with a break in the action. The only real breaks that your neck gets are with the intro, outro and when Sudestada decides to slow things down for a beat in the middle of some of their tracks before they pick back up again.

Among their heavy handed style of hardcore, there is an underlying atmosphere that seeps through each track providing you with a darker sound than what you might normally hear. The atmospherics that steeped within each track are great additions as they add something unique as well as more diversity and variation through each track. The balance that Sudestada strikes between their brain bruising hardcore approach and the atmospherics that are injected to each track is a good one as it provides you with ten well constructed and well written tracks that are wholly memorable.

Overall, Yo soy el mar is a very solid record as it provides you with great variation and diversity through each track. The combination of numerous genres as well as the atmospherics create an overall sound that is organic and all together easy to listen to. Yo soy el mar is a solid record through and through, one that you will not find a weak track in what so ever.

In a complete murky mixture of sludge and punk noise, Woorms storms out of the gate with the first track of four within the new split release with A Hanging. The Math Says Yes is the title of the track and it is engaging and hypnotic right out of the gate. Woorms subtly leads you in to their noisy brand of murky punk until they finally hit you in the jaw with their full fledged sludge punk fusion. The Math Says Yes is a heavy easy to head bang to track that grips you right from the get go only to take you on an incredibly entertaining and heavy sonic exhibition. This track is addicting and certainly leaves an imprint on your mind as you will have this track rattling around in your head for some time. Over the course of the five minutes in which this track plays, you become submerged in grimy riffs that are backed by a solid drum performance and yelled vocals that bounce off the walls of your skull. The Math Says Yes is a noisy and engaging offering that is easy to get in to and it works as the perfect first track to this four track split.

The remaining three tracks of this split belong to A Hanging who fuse thrash and hardcore together to create an all together chaotic and furious sound. A Hanging start you off with their first track Graft, which is a neck snapper of an opener for their half of the split. Graft rampages on propelled by intensity and a pure ferocity.

Abolitionism.jpg

Hailing from the great city of Boston is hardcore act The Noble. Abolitionism is the title of their upcoming EP in which you will find five purely aggressive and in your face tracks that you have no choice but to listen to. The Noble puts a bit of a spin on the hardcore sound by offering up positive tunes for you to head bang and bash your brain against your skull to. Each track offers up positive messages about equality, standing up for what is right and respect among others. With their aggressive sound, The Noble fleshes out messages of positivity and hope which is a nice and fresh take on an ultimately destructive and bone shattering sound.

As positive as the messages are throughout Abolitionism, The Noble certainly still takes a no holds barred approach to their sound as they blast off right away with Somethin Ta Say. This track is a trudging and heavy handed offering that grips you by the jaw right off the bat only to shovel copious amounts of hammering drums, manic screamed vocals and massively bone rattling riffs upon you. From this opener onward the intensity doesn’t let up what so ever as The Noble takes you on a savage sonic ride that very quickly sears each track in to your head.

Once one track fades out the next quickly appears confronting you with a massively heavy and in your face sound that is hard to forget. The Noble doesn’t give you rest in between tracks either as they stomp straight in to the next providing you with even more heavy handed and jaw gripping hardcore for you to bang your head to. Each of the six tracks on this release are pumped full of fist pumping energy that gets you involved right from the start as you shout along with each lyric. Abolitionism is a memorable and well put together record that hits the nail right on the head.

With Abolitionism, The Noble have put together a positive yet undeniably heavy and bone rattling sound that is easy to get in to and easy to want to continue listening to. Through this EP you are treated to six really solid tracks that never get old even after listening plenty of times and when you are done they stick to you and rattle around in your head for time to come.

Abolitionism will  be released April 20, 2018

Employed To Serve: The Warmth Of A Dying Sun

November 9, 2017
viralstampede

Why it has taken me so long to discover Employed To Serve is well beyond me. Ever since stumbling upon them the other day and listening to their newest record The Warmth Of A Dying Sun, I have to say that they may be one of the finest hardcore acts out right now. Employed To Serve brings pure, raw, visceral energy to their music that creates a very catastrophic and devastating atmosphere. There is so much energy and aggression pumped in to this record that you almost feel inclined to just break shit and bash your skull against a wall.

From the first note on you are encircled in a chaotic moshpit of nothing but purely destructive and venomous hardcore and yet you don’t want to leave the pit. The Warmth Of A Dying Sun certainly is an abrasive and wholly chaotic record, but even so you feel the need to listen over and over again to get your skull grinding fix. Even as caustic as this record is, it still is hypnotic in its own twisted kind of way. Once you start listening you just can’t help yourself but to listen all the way through and then listen again.

Each of the ten tracks that appear on this release are gritty and grimy and make you feel uncomfortable because of how aggressive and in your face they are. These tracks are punchy, venomous, blunt and down right deadly. The Warmth Of A Dying Sun is an undeniably heavy and relentless record that chews you up and spits you out the other side once it is done with you. With that being said you end up jumping right back in and taking that beating all over again. This release is addicting honestly and the more that you listen, the more that you seem to not be able to pull yourself away from your speakers.

With all of their aggression, Employed To Serve ends with Apple Tree, where the band takes a different direction in their approach. Apple Tree is slower and more melancholic and somber in mood and yet it definitely rounds The Warmth Of A Dying Sun out perfectly. This track is more emotional and nearly serene compared to the other nine tracks that came before it. Apple Tree is a welcome and almost warm sight as well as a great way to end such a chaotic, well rounded and well crafted record.

The Warmth Of The Dying Sun is a great record. One that is harsh, punishing, chaotic, captivating and just an all around solid release. Employed To Serve is a unique band, one that takes hardcore and twists it to their liking creating a sound that is all their own and in turn creating such a solid record.
