Ohhhhh shit! CHERUBS ARE FUCKING BACK!! Yes these 90s noise rawkin' agitators have a new slab of ugly, heavy, pounding awesomeness after 20 years, and its...if I may quote the kids of today...amaze-balls!
10 new tracks get the lead out and smash you into the ground like a jackhammer.
Chances are you know these guys if you come around these parts...but if you're new to 'em, this is a damn fine record for introductions. This riotous beast of racket and ruckus doesn't sound like they've missed a step in the past 20 years and could've been released right after their earlier releases, Heroin Man and Icing.
Abso-fucking-lutely recommended and essential!!

Split 7" from 2 crushing, punishing and destroying bands from different sides of the globe.
Grizzlor (U.S.) crank out the fuzzed out, apocalyptic doom noise rock. I've had them on the old bloggo here before. Scope that shit out. And Barren Womb is Norwegian noise-punk that will make your brain melt like a bad acid trip. 2 songs each. Get whumped and wholloped!!

Noise rawkin' 3 piece from Milwaukee Wisconsin, Soup Moat, blast through 5 fun, punk-sized bites of party sludge on their new 7" EP on Triple Eye Industries. All 5 songs clock in under 2 minutes...great for those of us with short attention spans....
So, uhh... What was I talking about again?
Oh well... Recommended if you're into Torche, Floor, Red Fang, Fang, Big Boys, Kylesa, Fear, rubber chickens, whoopie cushions and cheap beer. Cover art printed by BPRD.

Dirty and gritty noise rock from the big 'ol state of Texas. Deep Snapper has all the ugly, coarse, rough around the edges style of rock you love. You like Killdozer? Mule? Old Butthole Surfers? Ed Hall? You like this.
This was submitted/suggested by our official, unofficial contributor, Ralf. He's a swell guy.

Here's a heart to-find (ha see what I did there?) EP from Babes in Toyland's foxy uber-babe, Kat Bjelland's after-Babes project, Katastrophy Wife. I posted an LP a while back, of some newly reissued stuff, so check that out.
This is a rare, 4 song single, released on an Australian label, that consists of... the song, Heart On, 2 remixes of said song, and an Iron Maiden cover. I'm not a big fan of remixes, although the 'Metal Valve' remix has a Jon Spencer/Boss Hog/Pussy Galore vibe to it. So its doable. The last remix is just unnecessary. But the title track and Maiden cover are what you really want here. Plus, check out that cover. I mean...damn.

Dead Arms are from the UK, and play a heavy, pounding and crushing brand of noise rock n roll !
And look at that cover art... That says it all!
You like Part Chimp?... Todd?... Metz?... Motorhead?... Cigarettes, cheap beer and shots of whiskey?
Of course you do. As they say...thou shalt make an unholy racket. Yes. Yes they do!

Psychotic and spiraling noise rock from Minneapolis, MN. I'm so glad I don't have to pronounce HHRRIISSTT for a podcast or radio show. Although I assume it sounds just like its spelled right?
Kinda like the Steve Martin movie, 'The Man With Two Brains'...Dr. Hfuhruhurr. "It's spelled exactly like it sounds. H-F-U-H-R-U-H-U-R-R". Ha.
Sorry, easily distracted....
So lots of echo, reverb and distorto vocals going on here. Some electronics too. This sounds like a mix of Brainiac, Lightning Bolt, Milemarker, and Arab on Radar. Love Is A Weak Word is a 5-song demo cassette, which is to hold us over while they crank out a full length record.

Mad Pilot is from Moscow, Russia Federation and can be described as pure crunch power. This 8 song album was originally released in 2008, but got the sexy remaster treatment in 2014.
You know how when you're you hear a song for the first time and you're like...goddamn!! I'm gonna put down my crochet needles for a second and give this my undivided attention. That's what the 2nd song here, "Wagon Full of Rednecks" did for me. It just attacks and...crunches from the start and rips thru for a solid 1:42. And the rest of the album is great as well, so don't stop there. One can hear influences of Helmet, Fiddlehead, Silverfish, Guzzard, Halo of Flies. This should pump your nads, nards and nipples.

Rectal Hygienics are from Chicago, IL and play a heavy-ass, blown the fuck out, dirty, sludge style of noise rock. Sounds good right? Of course. There's nothing happy and pretty happening here.
If you're into Twin Stumps. Flipper, Drunkdriver, powertakeOff!, Grids, Rusted Shut, then you'll enjoy being pulverized by this. 8 thick slabs of devastating and pummeling hate, and crushing brutality go on a belligerent and battering rampage, leaving a dark and crumpled aftermath in your earholes and head cavitites. Hell yes!
