This is the debut album from US hardcore band Eye Flys.
Featuring a guitarist of Full of Hell, this is 25 minutes of stocky heaviness and charismatic hostility. Elements of hardcore, punk, sludge, and noise rock collide on Tub of Lard, leading to an enjoyable take on heavy music. Reference points for Continue reading “Eye Flys – Tub of Lard (Review)”
Escape Is Not Freedom are an alternative/sludge metal band, and this is their second album.
Escape Is Not Freedom are no strangers to this site, (here and here), and it’s great to hear some new material from them.

This is the debut album Greek post-hardcore/sludge band Chronoboros.
2015’s Dialing up the Clutter was an enjoyable, if brief, introduction to Chronoboros’ jagged, angular sound, and now they’re back with their first full length; 34 minutes of harsh noise and deliberate contrariness. Continue reading “Chronoboros – No Dirt or Silver Will Have Us Sated (Review)”
