Album ♯7 from Unsane, purveyors of New York’s post punk/hardcore, noise rock or whatever you want to call their style. Their career has spanned almost thirty years. My first encounter was their 2005 album “Blood Run” which mixed aggression with… Continue Reading →

The Casualties – Chaos Sound (Season of Mist)

I am ashamed to say that I always overlooked The Casualties. I think I used to see them as an American cartoon version of my fave homegrown bands. More fool me! These New Yorkers don’t give a fuck about the… Continue Reading →

Pigs – Wronger (Solar Flare)

I like pigs. Lovely oinky creatures, they also taste nice. After listening to the 2nd album from this New York trio, I think the band are OK too. Pigs consists of Unsane’s Dave Curran, Freshkills’ Jim Paradise, and Converge producer… Continue Reading →

Krallice – Ygg Huur (S/R)
