Let’s get this straight. Austin’s ANCIENT VVISDOM contributed one half of a split with CHARLES MANSON, includes alumni of hardcore head splitters INTEGRITY and IRON AGE, and their style of acoustic-driven music has been called death rock through which Lucifer’s praises are sung. That’s an interesting laundry list to pique’s one interest. The music is interesting as well, not to mention memorable. Change of pace anyone?
An overwhelming, concentrated outpouring of perceptual stimuli, Agoraphobic Nosebleed’s long awaited full-length Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope is a snarling digital nightmare, dealing lethal doses of their dementia-producing machine gun hyper-grind. Nasty, systematic beatings arise from 2000 beat per minute drum onslaughts, vein-splitting vocals and a piranha-like six-string attack.
