3 piece from Minneapolis delivers a 4 song EP of the noise rock nature. I posted an earlier release here, so they are no strangers to these parts. Big guitars, loud drums and aggro vocals. We like them and you should too.
You like cassettes? They have 'em. Scoop 'em up at the link below.

BANDCAMP: DEATH TRIANGLE
Tuesday, September 30, 2014
I remember the first time I saw Helmet. It was 1990 or 91. I was living in a rural midwest neighborhood. It was nice and clean. I heard Strap It On and was blown away. I needed to see these dudes live. The closest place they were playing at that time was a small college town about an hour and a half away. So me and 2 buddies piled in the car, made the trek, and the 3 of us as well as about 47 other people were lucky enough to see them tear through their full length as well as preview which would later become In the Meantime. Man, those were the days.
Oh, this band here Wrong from Miami FL, sound like Helmet, in a good way, and brought back good memories. Yeah!

Continuing on with more industrial strength noise rock from Steel Pole Bath Tub here on the 'ol blaaag. Here's their smokin' 2 song 7"er from 1992.... like a bottle spun loose on the concrete I crawl...

Pleasantly surprised to see (and hear) this. Brand new 4 song has been on repeat all day giving me a perma-grin starting from one earlobe, down around past my hairy nostrils and creeping back up to the other wax crusted earlobe. Jesus Lizard, meets Tar, meets Cherubs meets Janitor Joe. Yup.

BANDCAMP: VARIABLE IMPULSE

The 90s were full of one-off bands doing pretty similar heavy and melodic stuff. This was one of those bands that only released this 6 song EP and nothing else. (as far as I know). Listening to this for the first time in years, it still holds up pretty well. This is less on on the typical noise rock style found here, and more on heavy grunge side. Stuff that you would find on Headhunter records or Sympathy. You know, Fluf meets Hum meets Pipe meets Nirvana.
Now where are my cutoff jean shorts and flannels?

Super heavy, ultra distorted and massively loud sludge from Fange, a 3 piece from Rennes. As they put it...FANGE (means "mire" in french) and they make harsh riffs and hard beats, with huge amounts of distorted sound and feedback. Also joined by Jyb from Zalhietzli for sonic manipulations and throat scuffings.
Don't know much else about them, but this rumbled my floor and chair, as well as the ass sitting on said chair. If my ass is rumbled, then it works for me.

So I keep telling myself, self...you gotta get your lazy ass posting more Steel Pole Bath Tub on that blog o' yours. The good people need it. So here's your soundtrack to a late night of amphetamines, rusty car parts, whiskey, rubbing alcohol, grease fires and bad tv.
5 song 2x7" single from one of the best noise rock outfits that ever was.
Shit to mess up your ears and head...in a good way.

Headwax is some rippin' noiserock kickassness from Toulouse France.
If Glazed Baby met Shellac and Tar at a bar with Young Widows and did shots of Malort all night, the after party would turn into this. Don't really know much else about them, except that they smacked me in the kisser like a watermelon launcher backfiring. Haha!
Thanks to friends over at ouspenskyfallexo.blogspot.com for posting this.
