Here's 3 Reviews for ya....


haarp- Husks-CD (Housecore)

From the Home of Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Super joint Ritual etc) comes a Sludge/Crust Doom force in a way that only someone that loves Noothgrush, Crowbar, Cavity and Buzzoven could even understand. This is down and dirty low end dirge material with a very Hardcore over tone. I love the sloppy bluesy solo that so remind me of Eyehategod is love at first sickly tone. haarp also have a love for the crust like His Hero is gone, Born Against and Damad. Albums like husks are tormenting to some and total worship to others. You have understand this all roots back to the Melvins... If you like early Melvins ( Ozma, Bullhead, Eggnog) then an album like husks is going to make total sense.  With just 3 tracks and well over 50 minutes of punishing riffs, vocals and percussion you will be left  with the perfect aggression release. I can not wait for more haarp........




Heinali- Air- CD/Digital (Fluttery Records)

Minimalist Orchestral Post Rock meets Soundscapes in a way bands like Silver Mt Zion, Rodan, Mandible Chatter and Rachels all created there music over the yrs. Heinali is heartbreaking and joy inspiring all in the same track. The ambient backdrops with the synths, strings and loops going on its what modern classical composers are creating just on a much more experimental style and ideal. Fluttery gets the Post Industrial and Rock landscape they just need to promote and get there release out to more channels as bands like this that should be on a much larger commercial and radio focus just never get it. I hope a label like Play it again sam, Constellation or Alien8 gets to hear them as he would become an indie darling over night. I don't know what more to say as the dark and drifting sounds of this composer more then speak for themselves. Get this from Fluttery records and get Social media on his side so Heinali can cross over to a major indie that will show the world have fragile and delicate music and be powerful and majestic ...




Nether Regions- Into the Breach-CD (Abnormal Gait)

So we dig once again into the underbelly of Sludge, Doom and Noise rock for Nether Regions out of Portland OR... If you can mix a few bands into a pot and let them stew for a while you will get them. I hear The God Machine, Rein Sanction, Melvin's and Sleep all in one band here. Yes I would say Jazzy, Indie Doom Noise is what Nether regions is and Yes its just as fucked up as I say it is and even better to listen to. Sung, Screaming and tripped out Vocals . The guitars are those of Dinosaur Jr, Rollins band and Sonic youth all at the same time and the manic drumming is just icing on the cake. The Bass is king here in the way it was and is with Melvins, Kyuss and Sleep. I think you get the picture I'm painting here. There are many bands Nether Regions will remind you of but there is not a one single band Nether Regions are.. Creativity and talent go hand  and hand with this release a must listen folks..
