Last Friday (1/29/21) I got to check out the live stream from Housecore bands Scour and Shock Narcotic. Both of these groups are “supergroups” but I’m not going to get into that right now. I will say though that the list of bands that make up the background for each band are some of my favorites so I was kinda excited for this show.
Death grind supergroup SCOUR featuring Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Superjoint etc.), John Jarvis (Agoraphobic Nosebleed), Derek Engemann (Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, ex-Cattle Decapitation), Mark Kloeppel (Misery Index), and Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index) will finally release their long-anticipated Black EP, the third in a three-part series, next year via Housecore Records. The band has a history of covers at their shows and they are releasing a special Black Friday teaser their cover of Bathory classic, “Massacre.” Revolver is hosting an exclusive fan-filmed video clip of the track, captured at various shows through the years.Continue reading
Given the name, you’d expect Baltimore quintet Asthma Castle to deliver a wheezy form of Stoner/Sludge derived from the likes of Hollow Leg. Debut album Mount Crushmore (Hellmistress Records), the band’s first release for nine years, shows considerably more bounce and fun than any such misplaced assumptions, but flattens it all with unfathomable, cosmic weight.Continue reading
I think as Extreme Metal fans we can all agree that we were getting a little antsy awaiting new music from Baltimore’s loudest sons, Misery Index. Watching the news every day through my fingers I know that the world and a certain leader are shit, so I figured Misery Index are in no shortage of material to convert into awesome grind sounds. But wait no more, children; Rituals Of Power (Season of Mist) is finally here.Continue reading
It’s upon us again… After six years and many listens to 2012’s Book Burner, Pig Destroyer have unsheathed Head Cage (Relapse) their sixth full-length in a career spanning two decades. The fact that we continue to get new music from Pig Destroyer seems baffling. Like Converge or Refused, Pig Destroyer are in the unique position of being able to rest on past accomplishments and make good money playing the Summer festival market.
Yet, the creative beast cannot be satiated.Continue reading
Scour released their first EP to the world back in 2016, and the highly anticipated follow up hit stores today via Housecore Records. The Red EP boasts fifteen minutes of pure, extreme metal that only a group including the likes of Philip Anselmo, John and Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer), Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), and Chase Fraser (Continuum) could pull off.

Scour released their first EP to the world back in 2016, and it looks like the highly anticipated follow up is coming later this year. Continue reading
Grindcore outfit Fulgora has released their seven track CDStratagem, out now via Housecore Records and is now streaming it in full below. The group features guitarist/vocalist B.L. LaMew, drummer Adam Jarvis and bassist John Jarvin (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, etc).
Boasting members of Pig Destroyer, Misery Index and Agoraphobic Nosebleed, FULGORA is a nihilistic grindcore/death collective devising violent hymns of audio destruction. Melding death, grind and hardcore-laden, vulturine vocal incursions, the band’s sadistic output is the sound of a world gone rotten with apathy, disease and decay.
The band features guitarist/vocalist B. L. LaMew, bassist John Jarvis, drummer Adam Jarvis and live guitarist Sparky Voyles (ex Dying Fetus).
