Relapse rec.'s WRONG announce second full-length album "Feel Great" share "Culminate" music video

Those who love the noise rock of the 90's and the likes of Helmet, Unsane Jesus Lizard shoulda mark this name down: WRONG...

Miami noise rock/alt metal powerhouse WRONG’s (members of Torche, ex-Capsule, ex-Kylesa) sophomore album "Feel Great" will make you feel the exact opposite of great. The band has created a moody and eclectic record, albeit the moods are pissed and the eclecticism is various levels of pissed. On "Feel Great", WRONG has mastered the arts of bludgeoning groove, riff, tone, and grit, creating eleven songs that are faster, heavier, angrier yet also more melodic than their breakout debut. The album was self-produced by the band and recorded at various studios around Miami with mixing handled by guitarist Ryan Haft and artwork by Rick Smith of TORCHE. WRONG is the exact type of rock band the world needs in 2018, uncompromising, aggressive and ready to tear the whole damn place to bits.

Watch WRONG’s new music video for “Culminate” HERE. The video directed and shot by Mike Ruiz and Eric Hernandez features the band jamming in their practice space followed by a wild night out on the town...WRONG style.

Now streaming: NOOSE ROT Primitive death metal butchers debut with barbaric new demo tape

That's what we're streaming today. Once again it's definitelynot punk hardcore stuff but it's some caustic music indeed...

NOOSE ROT hails from Minnesota and plays just totally fucked and putrid death metal.
The band came to be around a shared love of members of Gatecreeper, Skeletonwitch, and Wolvhammer for primitive and involved death metal in the vein of Autopsy, Pungent Stench, Coffins, Nihilist, Grave, and Repugnant - deciding to join forces to birth their own death metal abomination that would worship at the altar of the Finnish and Swedish gods of ancestral death and decay.

Gruesomely regressed and appallingly involved, In their wretched and bludgeoning debut EP NOOSE ROT spew forth a vomited cascade of complete aural filth that engulfs the listener in a blinding deluge of chainsawing guitars, steamrolling drums, and putridly tortured vocals. At its most delicate and refined "The Creeping Unknown" is nothing more than a coffin-born aural stampede of complete aural rot where caveman-death metal is taken to a sickening new extreme, conjuring similar diseased, atmospheres as seen in bands like Cruciamentum, Vastum, Acephalix, Disma, and Grave Miasma.

Supreme doom enchanters MESSA announce new album "Feast For Water", due out April 6th on Aural Music

I've accidentally discovered this Italian band some months ago and got hooked up since the very first listen of their slow dragging ethereal rock melting stuff. We're now copying-pasting this fresh press release from Purple Sage PR about their upcoming new record...

Italy's peerless "scarlet doom" foursome MESSA have announced the release of their sophomore full-length "Feast For Water", to be issued April 6th on Aural Music.

MESSA play evoking doom metal with a dark jazz twist. Deliciously haunting female vocals, Rhodes piano and 70’s fuzz guitars combine to conjure a sound that is all of their own. With influences as diverse as Windhand, Bohren Und Der Club Of Gore, The Devil’s Blood, Jex Thoth, Angelo Badalamenti, Bellwitch, Urfaust, John Coltrane and Aluk Todolo, the band has moved from the droning occult doom of their first LP ‘Belfry’ to a new, darker and more atmospheric approach clearly showcased in their new record ‘Feast for Water’, a concept album centered on the introspective, symbolic and ritual features of the liquid element.

We didn't get any audio preview with the press release but you can stream here their first full-length "Belfry" released in 2016

After the "Fury Stands Unbeaten" Italy’s angry old school hardcore combo STRAIGHT OPPOSITION is back with a fury related record-title "The Fury From The Coast", and this time around, this fury, represents the one bursting out of the centre of Italy’s regions -these guys hail from Pescara, Abruzzo- and their strong and proud people struggling and fighting hard for living a normal life in an ill-fated territory that over the recent years, 2016 and 2017, has been badly struck by some devastating and deadly earthquakes. In the aftermath of the seismic activities, a high toll of deaths was claimed, buildings and historical monuments got toppled and damaged, leaving entire towns and areas with the problem of housing people, temporarily, while waiting for the long complicated re-building to start up; a re-building being made longer and complex due to those who, to aquire personal benefit, abuse of their power and public resources.
Straight Opposition have always been straightforward while addressing these issues and aren’t definitely some unheard-of-newcomers among the Italian and European hardcore punk scene being the four-piece formed in 2004 and counting under their belt several record releases (the new album "The Fury From The Coast" marks their fifth full-length), and tours both in Italy and Europe, which got hit more than a few times.
I emailed these questions to Ivan Di Marco (vocals), last December, when they had just headed out with their van, on the “Populism Is Cancer” tour, destination Europe.
Read on the answers from Straight Opposition…

HAPPY ACCIDENTS reveal ‘Text Me When You’re Home’ Video

London indie-punk trio HAPPY ACCIDENTS are pleased to present the video for their latest track
Text Me When You’re Home’.

A plaintive and honest track about cat-calling and street harassment sung from the female perspective by drummer Phoebe Cross, she says of the new single: "The song's about the inherent threat of walking home alone at night that often comes with being a woman. There's a constant fear of the unknown because of the fact that unwarranted interactions such as being shouted at, or worse, are all too common. I shouldn't have to take my safety for granted, and we have a long way to go to overcome this ingrained societal misogyny."
