Dissident Aggression: Grizzlor/Barren Womb Split 7″

Posted by on April 3, 2015

Connecticut and Norway are a pretty long ways off from each other.  While the latter has a reputation as a birthing room for some of metal’s most influential babies, the former…well…not so much.  However, the reality is that Connecticut (and really all of New England), while not on par just yet with Norway, has still […]

Dissident Aggression: Tomb and Thirst – Wrath

Posted by on February 27, 2015

Under the Earth’s crust exists a swirling vortex of white hot magma which constantly heaves and churns and occasionally wreaks the most combustible and vitriolic natural havoc known to man.  Under that is a dual layer of solid, blistering metal.  What heaves and agitates beneath our feet on a daily basis is a visual and […]

While previewing this album at my day job, a co-worker asked, “Is that music or static coming out of your speakers?”  Short answer: Yes.  To say that North Carolina’s grind-infused, crusty three-piece, Torch Runner, are abrasive, especially to the untrained ear, is a vast and monumental understatement. After their new label, Southern Lord, reissued their […]

Dissident Aggression: Martyrdöd – Elddop

Posted by on July 18, 2014

Torment and despair come in so many forms it’s sickening.  The injustices wrought upon 99% of us are varied.  Most of us are so subtly affected it’s enough to become numb to the effects.  For others it’s a thousand pound anchor slowly sinking us in a sea of misery.  For some the bottom never comes, […]
