Recording for Allentown grindcore quartet Orphan Donor’s new EP Empty apparently took place over the course of three years – starting in January 2011, in a barn, and ending in November 2013, in a basement. Clocking in at a seemingly meager 15 minutes, Empty might just be the most rawly affecting extreme music listen you’ll have all year. Check it!
If you dig this, be sure to check out the band’s live (and incredibly murky) self-titled EP here. You can also look forward to the band’s first full-length, which is in the works.
Stream: Dead In the Dirt – “No Chain”
The Atlanta, GA powerviolence trio DEAD IN THE DIRT is certainly an intriguing up-and-comer in the world of extreme music. The band pulls together some truly unrelenting and pummeling grindcore and powerviolence tunes, but all while advocating a straight-edge and vegan code of ethics.
Above, you can stream a song from the outfit’s forthcoming debut, The Blind Hole, due for release on August 6th via Southern Lord.
