Turbid North release video for ‘Pyramid Drones’

For the metalhead in you...

Alaskan Mountain Metal crew TURBID NORTH have launched a brand new video for the track ‘Pyramid Drones’. The song is taken from their second full length album ‘Eyes Alive’ which is penned for release on 30th September via Apocalyptic Witchcraft.

The album is released on limited edition 180 gram blood red vinyl -and comes with a patch.

Vocalist Nick comments:

“The video was shot in an awesome venue we play regularly in Fort Worth, TX called Tomcats West. We rented some lights and one camera on a tripod to film ourselves. Did about 10 takes with different angles. No camera man, completely DIY. It isn’t the most action packed video, but we needed something quick and I really thought it was important to show off the new lineup.”

MACHETE FUCK "Atavic Scars" demo now up in streaming

I'm bit of a partisan here being one of the band's guitarists, Michela (aka Michella Hall), one of our longtime writers. This being said I am happy to stream on our 'zine and introduce to you all MACHETE FUCK from Berlin, Germany.
The foursome features among its ranks ex-members of Discharge, Vagrants, Them Martyrs and Disgust and just released an 11-track demo entitled "Atavic Scars".
They play a blend of noxious extremely deafeaning d-beat HC metal punk with crust influences and doomy heavy slowed-down parts. So take bands like Discharge, Anticimex, Doom, Disrupt, Nausea, Hellbastard, Napalm Death, Converge, Nailbomb, Fudgetunnel and mix everything with Black Sabbath and Motörhead just to have a wee idea about what their music sounds like -if you're not accostumed to the genre yet. Anyway, definitely worth listening to them and watching out for their next moves.
