Throat – Bareback

Throat’s Bareback (Svart) is the type of album you used to notice getting high marks in magazines like Pitchfork or NME. You know, the types of magazines that you got into for a brief while in college right around the time you started drinking lagers and attempting to smoke cigarettes. You didn’t particularly care for most of the articles, but reading these musical journals sure raised the right flags. You are cultured. You are no longer the rube with the cheap shoes.

Timekiller Streaming “Sick Of Myself”

Brazilian metallers are streaming Timekiller‘s “Sick Of Myself” off Eolian Empire’s (We’ve Got) FIENDS IN LOW PLACES: Heavy Vibes Internationale compilation, out February 3, 2015, here.

Listen to UK based Meadows’ “I Am Gobshite” here, and Finland’s Throat’s “Clean Cleaner” here.

A gnarled calling card with more than fifty minutes of audio, the fifteen stark, aggressive, noise-laden tunes on FIENDS IN LOW PLACES are worked over with smarts and wicked humor on this compilation of exclusive tracks. With contributions from THROAT (Finland), ARABROT (Norway), HEALTH PROBLEMS (USA), MoE (Norway), THE GREAT SABATINI (Canada), DEAD (Australia), BASTARD OF THE SKIES (England), HOMBRE MALO (Norway), SAME-SEX DICTATOR(USA), TEEPH (USA), CYBERNE (Japan), TIMEKILLER (Brazil), ELEPHANT RIFLE (USA), BATPISS (Australia), and MEADOWS (England), the comp is a wild trip through twisted noise rock, bludgeoning sludge, psychotic metal, blackened hardcore, and damaged punk, with each act’s warped worldview in full effect.

(We’ve Got) FIENDS IN LOW PLACES is the sequel and companion compilation to the (We’ve Gotta) KEEP OUR HEADS: Heavy Vibes from Portland, Oregon, yet instead of focusing on Portland-based acts as with the label’s twenty-nine previous releases, FIENDS IN LOW PLACES marks a new low for the Eolian horde, as its contributions were culled from friends playing off-the-wall heavy music in overlapping scenes internationally.

Eolian Empire Compilation Streaming Throat’s “Clean Cleaner”

eolian empire (we've got) fiends in low places

The Eolian Empire is streaming Throat’s “Clean Cleaner” here and Meadows’ “I Am Gobshite” here, off (We’ve Got) FIENDS IN LOW PLACES compilation, out February 3, 2015.

(We’ve Got) FIENDS IN LOW PLACES is the sequel and companion compilation to Eolian’s (We’ve Gotta) KEEP OUR HEADS: Heavy Vibes from Portland, Oregon, which featured twenty-six heavy Portland bands. Like on KEEP OUR HEADS, the “fiends” on FIENDS IN LOW PLACES were drawn from friends playing off-the-wall heavy music in overlapping scenes, scenes this time spread throughout the world. This special collection marks a new low for the Eolian horde, since the entire roster to date has yielded only Portland-centric audio carnage, while FIENDS IN LOW PLACES features fifteen of the Eolian clan’s caustic cronies from around the globe. A gnarled calling card with more than fifty minutes of audio, these fifteen stark, aggressive, noise-laden tunes are worked over with smarts and wicked humor on this compilation of exclusive tracks, with contributions from THROAT (Finland), ARABROT (Norway), HEALTH PROBLEMS (USA), MoE (Finland), THE GREAT SABATINI (Canada), DEAD (Australia), BASTARD OF THE SKIES (England), HOMBRE MALO (Norway), SAME-SEX DICTATOR(USA), TEEPH (USA), CYBERNE (Japan), TIMEKILLER (Brazil), ELEPHANT RIFLE (USA), BATPISS (Australia), and MEADOWS (England), a wild trip through twisted noise rock, bludgeoning sludge, psychotic metal, blackened hardcore, and damaged punk, with each act’s warped worldview in full effect. It’s good to know one can find pigfucking goodness all around the world.
