Young and in the Way – “Be My Blood”

“Blackened crust” has got to be high in the running for nastiest genre name. Not many bands have a high enough filth factor to rise to this descriptor’s occasion, but among the furious few is Young and in the Way. Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, the quartet makes music that demands being set to frenetic footage of the band performing so hard that blood covers their faces, the frontman wretching at his reflection in a mirror held by a robed death figure, and naturally, myriad glass shit breaking. At least, that’s the deal with their new single “Be My Blood,” which could be called a treat if you’re into some seriously confrontational music. If that’s the case, check it out above and enjoy!

“Be My Blood” is taken from When Life Comes to Death, due out May 27 via Deathwish. It’s their sophomore LP, after 2011′s I Am Not What I Am.

MONOLITHS. – “No Love” ft. Charlie Mansion (Death Grips Cover)

The Massachusetts rock outfit MONOLITHS. has a pretty diverse set of covers on this new Bandcamp release they’ve recently dropped, and Death Grips ranks among the handful of artists these guys decided to cover. Their song of choice: “No Love,” which is one of the more frighteningly aggressive tracks off the experimental hip hop trio’s NO LOVE DEEP WEB. Even though the verse riffs seem to be off tempo a tick, it’s a pretty interesting rendition. Enjoy!

Prince Po & Oh No – “Toxic”

Like I already told you, Prince Po & Oh No are planning on dropping a new album soon, and “Toxic” is just another reason to be excited for it. Hard bars and harder beats come through on the 2:30 runtime here, and I can’t wait to see how dirty this album can get! Be on the lookout on Feb. 4th. Enjoy!

Calvaiire – Forceps

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Men – “Pearly Gates”

If you can expect anything from New York’s The Men, it’s that you’ll never know what to expect from them.

The band’s discography thus far has been quite the trip, showing no limits in their ability to imitate the sounds of noise rock, post-hardcore, pop rock, and even country. In fact, their foray into that last genre made for my least favorite Men album thus far. That influence rings true in this new track of theirs as well, “Pearly Gates”; however, I think this fiery backwoods rock number is paying off big-time. It’s like what would have happened if the punk movement had somehow preceded Southern, horn-backed bar rock. There’s loads of guitar slingin’, piano bangin’, and horn squealin’ to be had here. Pay close attention, and try not to miss a single second of the action!

Get some more info on the band’s next album via Sacred Bones. Also catch a review for one of the band’s previous albums below:

CALVAIIRE – Forceps

Stream this new album from Calvaiire courtesy of the Throatruiner Records Bandcamp. If you’re unfamiliar with the label, well, they pretty much deliver what you’d assume from the name.

These guys are a French rock outfit that combines elements of metal and hardcore together into a heavy, frantic, and punishing sonic experience. Loads of feedback, harsh vocals, and some pretty sinister guitar leads play throughout much of this thing. There’s the occasional black metal-inspired chord progression, and there are some pummeling blast beats on this collection of tracks as well. I also like that the band is delivering tracks at a bunch of different lengths, but nothing feels long-winded or too half-baked. Enjoy!

Stuntman – “Bag of Dicks”

Stream: Stuntman – “Bag of Dicks”

Next month, French hardcore outfit Stuntman will drop its third studio album, Incorporate the Excess. The band flaunts its unremitting brutality with lead single “Bag of Dicks,” a song whose title pretty much says it all. It’s an exceptionally  confrontational three minutes of sharp, noisy grindcore leads; frenzied, whiplash-inducing drumming; and snarled, caustic vocals. Give a listen above if you’re feeling brave!

Incorporate the Excess is due out January 18 via Solar Flare Records.

Soupcans – Parasite Brain

Demented and hellish, the new Soupcans EP does not mess around.

Weekend Nachos – Still

Chicago’s Weekend Nachos has never been a favorite of mine when it comes to the heavier side of modern music. I guess I’ve always felt their sound wasn’t that bold; however, it would be a shame not to share their new full-length of theirs, Still. After all, I was just violently bobbing my head to it’s heavy-as-all-hell grooves just yesterday. If you’re looking for a shot of aggression for aggression’s sake, fit into this thing. Enjoy!
