It’s been over a decade since Soilent Green last performed on these shores and in that time they’ve gone from being a band in their own right to the side-project of a side-project. With Jimmy Bower so busy with Down, Eyehategod haven’t had too much time to tour – meaning that Brian Patton has had even less time for Soilent Green. Not to forget Ben Falgoust keeping busy fronting Goatwhore. We thought we’d go and rock out to Soilent Green while we had the chance…

Album: Anaal Nathrakh – Passion

The time will inevitably come when Anaal Nathrakh can no longer make an album more despicable, more scathing, more putrid and generally less pleasant than the last. Apparently In The Constellation Of The Black Widow was not that album, as Passion is yet more ear-flaying than before. Although at first you could easily be forgiven for thinking this isn’t the case.

Earache Records are letting you download the entire of Dirge free of charge right now, a month before it’s even “out”. For all three of you who aren’t already convinced, I’m going to explain why you should download it, play it to death, then buy a CD copy, a t-shirt and catch Wormrot on tour.

It’s an explosion. It’s a big crunching mess. It’s a hasty cacophony. For your ears, it could a goddamned catastrophe. These might be some of the things that fly through your mind while you attempt to make sense of the blistering onslaught of hardcore/metal crossover that greets you during ‘Damage Prose’ – the opening track to Trap Them’s third album Darker Handcraft.

They are all reasonable thoughts because, thankfully, this record does not get any easier to listen to.

Album: Rotten Sound – Cursed

by Tom Dare

Grindcore’s ferocious formula doesn’t always lend itself to consistency or longevity, but Finland’s Rotten Sound are one of the shining exceptions. 18 years, seven long-plays and numerous EPs and splits after they first began, they’re still playing grindcore and, as new release Cursed proves, it’s still enough to make you want to demolish everything in sight.

by Luke Morton

You could be forgiven for giving iwrestledabearonce a pass from their name alone; or just another screamy-electro band who are ‘down with the kids’. Fusing grinding screams with powerful singing – plus the odd jazz interlude thrown in for good measure – iwrestledabearonce are alongside the likes of HORSE The Band in terms of musical style and feel.

by Tom Gibbons

Like a squaddie returning home to his doting girlfriend after a lengthy service in the Helmand Province, Carving Out The Eyes Of God ditches the foreplay and goes right in for the kill. Systematically producing a new album’s worth of ferocious Black/Death metal every 3 years has done nothing to blunt Goatwhore‘s ardour for fucked up noise.

Interview: Brutal Truth – “Hurricane Katrina brought us back together”

January 25th, 2007

It took a force of nature to bring seminal US deathgrind outfit Brutal Truth back together – but Hurricane Katrina couldn’t match their destructive force. We cornered bassist and Anthrax co-founder, Dan Lilker, to get the whole story.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This interview was originally published on MusicTowers.com. It is re-printed here with their full permission.

“It was actually a direct result of Hurricane Katrina.” As far as reasons to reform bands go, it’s certainly different from the usual excuses – a desperate attempt to snatch back the limelight, or large bags of cash offered by nostalgic promoters to clear post-success debts. For Dan Lilker, Brutal Truth bassist, the reasons were certainly a lot more altruistic than most.
