A few new things

17 Apr

Heresiarch ‎– Wælwulf [GER, 7″ EP] this sounds super heavy on vinyl
Heresiarch ‎– Wælwulf [Gildan, t-shirt, size M] took this for a cruise through my neighbourhood already, it’s a bit thin but a cool print

Angelcorpse ‎– Hammer Of Gods [FRA, 1999 reissue remastered with 2 bonus songs]
Antediluvian ‎– Through The Cervix Of Hawaah [IRE, Invictus, messy artwork and weird music, I like it!]
Archgoat ‎– Heavenly Vulva (Christ’s Last Rites) [original black/red disc version, nasty stuff] new to Discogs
Deranged ‎– Cut Carve Rip Serve [US, not bad, they have better albums than this but it’s still heavy as, I really like their overall sound it reminds me of Malignancy]
Headhunter D.C. ‎– …And The Sky Turns To Black… (The Dark Age Has Come) [Dying Music remastered reissue in a slipcase with some cover songs, not really my cup of tea, it’s ok] new to Discogs
Magnum Itiner Interius ‎– Departure At The Betrayal Of Life [oh wow, what’s this gem I tripped over by accident? reminds me of an excellent Volkmar album called Blessed Sins and bits and pieces of Disembowelment and Morgion]
Mandatory ‎– Adrift Beyond [SPA, new old school style DM, for fans of Asphyx and Entombed, if I’d heard this 20 years ago I would have liked it but it’s boring now]
Manticore ‎– Behold The Ascension Of The Execrated [whoah this is truly awesome! but it sounds like it was recorded in a toilet, really rough but it suits it]
Misery ‎– Curses [AUS, not sure why I got this, now I have 2…]
Mortician ‎– House By The Cemetery / Mortal Massacre [both EPs reissued together on 1 disc, mean as]
Nocturnal ‎– Thrash With The Devil [The German band, reissue of 2 EPs, fairly savage thrash/black metal] new to Discogs
Prong ‎– Carved Into Stone [GER, wicked album but it has possibly the lowest quality Digipak packaging I’ve ever seen]
Ulcerate ‎– The Coming Of Genocide [ITA, compilation of wicked old stuff]
Vomitor ‎– The Escalation [US, HHR red cover, man this SLAYS! the last album of theirs I got Devils Poison slayed too]

Rotten Sound / Ulcerate gig

12 Apr

I arrived at The Winchester in Newton, Auckland at about 10pm, just in time to catch Ulcerate play their last 4 or so songs.
I’ve wanted to see these guys for ages, I found it a bit difficult to get into but the fast bits were wicked, and those drums!
After the set I shook the vocalist/bassists hand and had a brief yak, I can see why they are so popular: Gorguts worship, part of the conversation was about it being the first time either of us had been to The Winchester ha ha I quite liked the venue, it was just a big cube with a few tables dotted here and there, the sound desk was bang in the middle way at the back and the bar was off to the side [which I don’t ever bother with] the stage was in the corner and quite low, Keijo got into the crowd at one point for some 1:1 face to face barking, fffriggin’ awesome!

Man I had to walk all the way there so when I got into the place I just turned to sweat, grim!
And I realised I spent about 20 minutes standing right next to most of Rotten Sound ha ha

Rotten sound hit the stage just after 11pm and they hit it hard, super heavy hell speed Grindcore is excellent live!
I think about 1 or 2 songs into their set the power for the guitar or bass shat itself so we had to put up with some fairly hilarious banter in the interim, actually the whole set was peppered with comedy [How many Finnish Grindcore bands does it take to change a light bulb?] Rotten Sound are the funnest band I’ve seen live so far, all smiling and looked happy to be there 8D

I counted about 100 people there, not bad for a Thursday night
The whole gig was filmed too I think? I saw some camera set up near the stage and some bloke was fiddling with it, plus everyone had their ‘smartphones’ out filming etc [oh-puh-leese!] the guitarist had a decent camera too [the one with the Unsane t-shirt]

It was all over by midnight, we had a 1 or 2 [?] song encore

$40 door sale tickets [$35 online early if you didn’t muck about, oops]
$5 for a sew on patch
No Rotten Sound CDs [left?!] on the merch table but Ulcerate [and I think Graves, one of the support bands, the other support band were Carnal] had some CDs and vinyl, $20 for a CD though ouch.

I highly recommend seeing these guys live, pummelled by Grindcore, what a way to go.
Wellington, you’re in for a treat and be fully prepared to ‘participate’ too ha ha ha \m/
