MAN MAN Kickoff US Tour w/ Modest Mouse!

Kickoff US Tour w/ Modest Mouse!

“Man Man exhibits a varied flair for macabre theatrics that includes a veritable world's fair of chaos and creation.” - Billboard Magazine

"The soundtrack for a post-apocalyptic street carnival." - Magnet Magazine

"Man Man creates a slippery tapestry with the authentic bearing of sea shanties run through a complex funhouse of loopy distortions, secret passageways and mirrored corridors." - Harp Magazine

“[They cram] boozy Brecht-flavored shout-alongs into shaggy waltz and oompah rhythms, with plenty of jazzy, engaging instrumental colors.” –
Entertainment Weekly

“When Man Man tour, they tour hard.” -

It's been a crazy and beautiful time for the men of Man Man since the release of the critically acclaimed "Six Demon Bag" (released last February, 2006 on the Ace Fu imprint), an album that moved a generation of fans around the world, from a band who spent their time destroying crowds nationwide on their seemingly endless US tours (taking brief stops to own your souls @ last year's Pitchfork, Siren, and SXSW Festivals, performing all the while w/ some of today's hottest bands), brought their live show over seas for the first time ever, and landed them on the cover of both their hometown Philadelphia Weekly, and most recently, Philadelphia City Paper newspapers. Man Man's brand of, what has been called, "gypsy-carnival-blues-punk," has inspired a rabid fanbase from coast to coast. Foaming for singer Honus Honus' every lyric and piano ridden, post-modern masterpieces, speechless while watching drummer, Chris "Pow Pow" Powell's thundering, obliterating, sky rocketing performances, and marveling at members Sergei Sogay, Alejandro "Cougar" Bjorg, and Chang Wang, as they endlessly juggle instruments from guitars, bass, sax, xlyophones, didgeridoos, and children's toys, to create a spectacle of sheer brilliance, brought to us in a way only one band knows how.

Now, one year later, courtesy of Icy Demons member Griffin Rodriguez and Shape Shoppe Studios in Chicago (see also Need New Body, Mice Parade, Beirut), the band emerges from the studio once again, unsigned, w/ something completely new, unique, and awe-inspiring in tow, unleashing sparkling new gems to a brand new audience as they hit the road w/ the kings of indie-rock, MODEST MOUSE!

TOTIMOSHI Add More Dates w/ RTX!

Breaking News!

Extend U.S. Tourdates w/ RTX!

"Totimoshi’s fourth CD has the syncopated looseness of early Sabbath and the howl-and-hammer rumble of late-Eighties grunge… the rugged, garagey production (courtesy of Helmet’s Page Hamilton) lends a genuine authenticity to the Oakland-based trio’s retro-sounding sludge. Though more civilized than High on Fire and less dramatic than Neurosis, Totimoshi prove capable of delivering equally devastating music.” REVOLVER MAGAZINE

“Totimoshi, however much they can and likely will appear to stoner rockers and even indie folks, are simply a great metal band..” – DECIBEL MAGAZINE

“Run bongwater-soaked '70s hard rock through Melvins and Sleep, sprinkle touches of blues and pop on top, and you have Totimoshi. This Oakland, CA trio does the stoner Sabbath thing as well as any band, but stands out with tones ranging from acoustic to twangy to fuzztones at 11. The group has a fearsome live reputation, and the nicely natural production (by Helmet's Page Hamilton) hints at that.” – STYLUSMAGAZINE.COM

Just off a West Coast tour w/ rock legends HELMET, Oakland, CA’s sludge-grunge-alt-hell-rock trio TOTIMOSHI are back w/ the follow-up to 2003’s “Monoli” and 2005’s re-issue of Mysterioso? to bring we mortals one of the heaviest and doom-ridden masterpieces the world of heavy rock has seen in way too long (no wonder bands like Helmet, Mastodon, Fu-Manchu, Kylesa, High on Fire, and the Melvins have tapped the band to tour and perform alongside on more than one occasion).

Bringing to mind some of history’s heaviest hitters (see Blue Cheer, Tool, Nirvana, Oxbow, Helmet), “Ladron’s” sludge-heavy guitar riffs, hugely-powerful bass-lines, and pummeling drums take their listener on a pseudo-psychedelic journey through space and time, and leave them wallowing in the depths of hell.

A Brief History:

Totimoshi was formed by singer/guitarist Tony Aguilar and bassist Meg Castellanos in Nov. 97'. After a slew of drummers-some lasting longer than others, Chris Irizarry joined the band in late '06. Totimoshi have recorded with acclaimed producers Billy Anderson, Alex Newport, and most recently Page Hamilton who worked on the upcoming "Ladrón". Past releases have included 1999's self titled, Mysterioso? (Crucial Blast 2002, enhanced re-issue 2005) and Monolí (This Dark Reign 2003).

Touring constantly across the US, they've gained a strong loyal following due to their innovative approach to heavy music. Highlights have included being handpicked by the Melvins, Mastodon, Fu Manchu, and Helmet to open for their respective tours, and headlining the Emissions and Stoner Hands of Doom Fests. A live performance in Dallas, TX for Budweiser's True Music can be seen on HD TV and now their myspace site. All 3 releases have seen high praise and their music has reached the airwaves in Europe, Australia, Brazil, Cuba, and the US. Totimoshi continues to carve out it's own path with it's explosive performances, dark emotive lyrics and hypnotic sound... truly a force and new direction for music made by musicians who follow no trend but thier own.

Tony Aguilar - singer/songwriter/guitarist
Meg Castellanos - bassist
Chris Irizarry – drums

TAME ONE (SSS) U.S. Tour w/ El-P!

(featuring Tame One and Dusted Dons)

Announce US Tour w/ El-P, Yak Ballz, and Hangar 18!

"Ever notice how hip hop these days is seriously lacking in banging bass lines that might smash your speakers to shreds? Slow Suicide Stimulus’ debut album brings back that bumpin’ and thumpin’ production style, with nasty wordplay provided by underground legend Tame One and slammin’ up-and-comers the Dusted Dons (Govone, C. Chan, and DJ Melski). With serious weight of ill guest shots (including Grandmaster Caz, Cage, Aesop Rock, Vast Aire, SA Smash, Yak Ballz, and more) and hot production from CamuTao, El-P, Mighty Mi, Mondee, and the Stimulus bros. themselves, this is definitely a must for all Weathermen, Definitive Jux and Eastern Conference fans. This shit is mad grimy and dusted, with tons of high-octane raw energy pumping through it- and if you ever get a chance to see these dudes in concert make sure you do that cuz they rip the stage live. Tracks like “Bi-Polar HiRollers”, “Akinesia”, “Roll Up” and “Smalltown” ensure SSS’s status as one of the hottest groups of 2006- don’t sleep on this one y’all." -

"With just a little more righteous anger, New Jersey collective Slow Suicide Stimulus would make a pretty strong bid to become the Public Enemy of the post-millennial age. The debut album by the underground quartet led by rappers Tame One and Dusted Dons is filled with the kind of heavy beats, layers of samples, and aggressive sound mixing that the Bomb Squad perfected back in the day, and the lyrics are politically and socially charged. The difference is that Slow Suicide Stimulus has a considerably more cynical, almost fatalistic feel to its lyrics... the primary pleasures of the album are in the exceedingly inventive arrangements and powerful beats underpinning the songs. Slow Suicide Stimulus is as musically inventive and exciting as hip-hop got in 2006." ~ All Music Guide

SLOW SUICIDE STIMULUS is the dysfunctional brainchild of Tame One & Dusted Dons (a live hip hop band turned hip hop group featuring C-Chan, Govone & DJ Melski from Hoboken/Morristown, NJ). They can be found on Cage's "Hells Winter" Tour DVD running a muck.

In the year since their self-titled full length release dropped bombs on faces worldwide, SSS has been on the road non-stop with the likes of Cage, Vast Aire (Cannibal Ox), Yak Ballz, XO Skeletons, among many others. Guest mercenaries include an A-list with the likes of Camu Tao, Cage, Aesop Rock, Vast Aire, EL-P, Yak Ballz, Mighty Mi, Mondee, RAW, Jasper, SA Smash, Face V and the Grand Master Caz.

Watch the video for “Bi-Polar Hi-Rollers” featuring CAGE HERE! feature on SSS - HERE!

TAME ONE will also be presenting his latest "The Grudge - Fuck The Industry" Mixtape out now on Division East Records!

"Tame One displays pure lyrical skill" -

After the untimely demise of the legendary New Jersey rap group The Artifacts (1992.-1997), 1980’s graffiti icon turned hip hop legend has again risen from the ashes like the fabled phoenix .

After his contract with Atlantic Records subdivision BigBeatRecords was up, Tame One reappeared a few years later for a short stint on Eastern Conference Records- the then home of supergroup The High n Mighty aka DJ Mighty Mi and Mr. Eon, The Weathermen's founder Cage Kennylz, YakBallz, and super producer Camu Tao (circa 1999-2006) After appearing on numerous Eastern Conference Records projects (i.e.- "EASTERN CONFERENCE RECORDS ALL STARS" volumes 2, 3, 4 and 5, The Weathermen's album "THE CONSPIRACY", Cage's "WEATHERPROOF" EP (The first debut of our collaboration as "LEAK BROS.") Camu Tao and Cage's collaborative concept album "NIGHTHAWKS", YakBallz's Definitive Jux debut "MY CLAIM" , Cannibal Ox’s Vast Aire and DJ Mighty Mi's "BEST DAMNED RAP SHOW" album. High & Mighty’s "THE 12TH MAN" as well as two solo albums(the critically acclaimed "WHEN RAPPERS ATTACK" and the purposely underground effort "O.G. BOBBY JOHNSON") both featuring the stellar production of Boom Skwad's DJ Porno and Camu Tao, J-Zone, DJ Mighty Mi and RJD2.

As the terms of Tame One's E.C. RECS contract came to a close, Cage Kennylz defected and changed labels, moving on to Definitive Jux, but before leaving, collaborated together under the alias Leak Brothers and dropped the underground cult classic album "WATERWORLD."

After a brief hiatus, Tame One returned joining forces with NJ Hip Hop band The Dusted Don’s (emcees C-Chan and Govone along with DJ Mel-Ski) to form an entirely different entity now known as Slow Suicide Stimulus. The SSS full length dropped within a month of Tame One’s highly praised, intentionally progressive solo LP “SPAZMATIC” on Ahead Recordings. (Produced solely by Xing n’ Fox) But before any of this had even occurred, the "pre-signed" Tame One created his own musical group, formed from childhood friends and co-collaborators THE BOOM SKWAD (established in 1992.) Among the deep, deep ranks of the multi-talented hip-hop veterans, the inner-circle consisting of DJ Rhino CMZ, (Hidden Descent) DJ Porno, MCs Jay Burnz Jaya, Kool Melo Max165, SA'D (Parliament/Funkadelic), New Jersey graffiti legend Jero NRG, and the former art director of Source Magazine Merge 1, have banded together out of the collective to continue the evolution of representing every aspect of the hip-hop culture "in-house" and independently (beginning with the limited edition 12' release ("BOOM SKWAD'S ON ATTACK" produced by GRUFFRYNO CMZ). Tame One is revered for his extensive catalogue and multiplicity of labels and artists he works and has worked with. Bringing us to his latest release “The Grudge” available now on Division East Records. ( The saga shall and does continue.

About Divison East Records:

Division East began as a skater owned and operated, grassroots skateboard shop in February of 2000. David Dowd single handedly ran Division East Skateshop day in and day out from 11am-8pm, Monday through Sunday offering a variety of skateboards, accessories, sneakers, clothing, apparell, videos, and an in-store half pipe. Companies ranged from big sellers (DC Shoes, Nike, Clarks, Puma, Etnies, Vans, and others) to lesser-known, “underground” companies (5 Boro, LeRoy Jenkins, LRG, 10 Deep, etc).

Dowd ventured into Division East t-shirts, hoodies, bags, pants, stickers, and skateboards in the years to come (designed by graffiti artists Bigfoot, Stay High 151, Tame One, Rime, Chip 7, Kemos, Navy 8, Detox “The Ghetto,”and others), as well as releasing 2 skate shop videos “Daggers” and the New Jersey cult classic “The Final Countdown” which featured east coast legends Andy Bautista, German Nieves, Joe Tookmanian, Kevin Hayden and many more. Division East’s 3rd, highly anticipated skate shop movie is currently in the works by’s own Justin White. Dave Dowd relocated Division East in early-2005 to a much larger, better situated location on Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, NJ, where it is still revered as the only skateboarder owned and operated shop in New Jersey.

As a life long fan and enthusiast of hip hop and hip hop culture, Dowd began selling spray paint, markers, black books, graffiti magazines, books, toys, movies, and caps out of the store. He collaborated with writers such as Cope 2, Rime, Tame One, Detox the Ghetto, Stay High 187, Chip7, and Kemos on various Division East products, as well as showcasing and sponsoring graffiti-related art shows.

With the help and advice of some close friends, Dave Dowd began getting his feet wet in the hip hop music circuit. He released a Division East hooded sweat shirt and t-shirt designed by Tame One, and followed shortly after with the “Division East Summer Mixtape” hosted by Tame One, which featured unreleased music from Tame One, Scienz of Life, GDP, Shape, G. Wallace, Cymarshall Law, and many more. Division East began sponsoring and promoting various hip shows predominantly throughout the North East and even down the East Coast with acts ranging from Tame One, Pace Won (Outsidaz), Juggaknots, C-Rayz Walz, Killah Priest, OC, and many more. Division East Records was officially established with the addition of GDP, Shape, G. Wallace, and Bullymouth to the roster. The Division East Winter Mixtape, mixed and hosted by the legendary Mr. Len of Company Flow fame which included music from El-P, Count Bass D, Tame One, Pace Won, GDP, G. Wallace, Shape, Pumpkinhead, Bullymouth, and more. Division East in affiliation with Mr. Len’s own Smacks Records released Bullymouth’s long-awaited “Back to School” LP in late 2006 and is extremely excited to be releasing Tame One’s “The Grudge” street album, Shape’s full length “Raised Near the Power Lines” and GDP’s “Involvement” EP this spring and summer 2007. Division East has become so many things to so many different people that it is no longer just a store, a clothing company, a record label, a show promoter, or a skateboard company; it is a movement. A refreshingly genuine movement, composed of friends helping friends, that is gaining momentum by the day, with a recently launched online store, monthly hip hop showcases throughout the Tri-State Area, and plans for the future that you will have to see to believe. And you will.

Roadburn Festival (Holland)

Blue Cheer, Big Business and more rock Holland's Roadburn Festival This Weekend!

BIRDS OF AVALON Kickoff Massive US Tour!

Kickoff US Tour This Weekend (featuring headlining dates and support for The Fucking Champs!) in support of their upcoming debut album "Bazaar, Bazaar" out May 22nd on Volcom!

“Led by a pair of guitarists who seem, by sheer force, to be powering their amplifiers rather than the other way around, Birds of Avalon make thunderous, precise rock with enough proggy smarts to keep you on your toes.” Steve Haruch for the Nashville Scene

“A band capable of delivering three-minute rock bliss and expansive psychedelic workouts with equal chops.” – Salt Lake Tribune

"North Carolina's Birds of Avalon mine from decades-past ghosts. Psyche, arena, glam—it's all in there. But Birds of Avalon expertly traverse all this information, picking up what they like and adding it to a sound that's simultaneously familiar and new." The Portland Mercury

After a 7-year stint in a prison van with the double drum, frenetic rock n’ roll assault known as The Cherry Valence, guitarists Cheetie Kumar and Paul Siler, felt a growing desire to move on. In a final whirlwind year that saw The Cherry Valence touring Europe multiple times, the couple, Kumar and Siler, got married and made the difficult decision to divorce their band.

Returning home hitched and band-less, they began late night clandestine meetings with neighbor and local crooner Craig Tilley (The Weather), where they hatched a plan to form Birds of Avalon and laid the foundation for what was to become the first batch of Birds Of Avalon songs. Still needing to round out their line up they snared their favorite area drummer Scott Nurkin (Dynamite Brothers) and soon added multi-instrumentalist and fanatical 4 tracker, David Mueller on bass.

With the release of their debut full length, Bazaar, Bazaar, Birds Of Avalon have developed a unique psychedelic meets progressive sound that yields feelings that transcend the conventions of both. Skillfully channeling elements of a time in Rock since past, while maintaining their place in the lineage of North Carolinian independent rock heritage. Easily traversing an area between raw blues rock and atmospheric pysch-pop. Birds Of Avalon “can tear it up in a three-minute barn-burner or lure you into an extended psychedelic journey, wandering schizophrenically like a Brian May guitar solo,” so says Jens Lekman of Cincinnati City Beat.

Bazaar, Bazaar is set for release on May 22nd on Volcom Entertainment and was recorded and produced by Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Let’s Active, Wilco), Greg Elkins and Brian Quast.

THE FLESH Announce World Tour / Dates with Ted Leo!

Announce Coast to Coast US Tour, European Tour w/ Ted Leo, in support of forthcoming album, “Firetower,” out May 1st on Gern Blandsten!

“"Dirty, sexy, sinister, and above all, fun." – Filter Magazine

"Part karaoke-ready, part darkwave operatic--big and bold and splashy." - XLR8R Magazine

“A fearless quartet...a New World Order in music that dares its competitors to keep up with the times.” -

“The Flesh has produced a distinct sound...both beautifully soulful, funky, and a bit creepy.” -

* Stream the song "Firetower" HERE! *

On The Flesh’s new LP Firetower, this “fearless quartet” (Blogcritics) expands on and experiments with its sound, for an addictive set of alluring art-pop anthems: Switching up the boy/girl vocal attack of their debut, it spotlights the passionate vocals of keyboardist Gabriella Zappia; building beyond the signature “punk-goes-R&B” sound of their early work, it adds driving, melodic punk (a la The Pretenders), sly rhythmic changeups and key changes, searing guitars, and sweeping pop melodies. Tied together with an elliptical narrative thread of illicit love, Firetower’s delightfully diverse 11 songs trace an emotional journey through innocence and towards experience, for the band’s most direct, compelling work to date.

When the band previewed some of the new songs on a short American tour in late '06, CITYBEAT’s Mike Breen wrote: “The evolution of their sound is far from over and crossover success may be imminent,” praising the title track as “classic, dramatic Pop” with “sweeping strings” and “hip hop-ready beats,” and The Cradle, the Brothel, and the Bible School as a “sensual, propulsive, sure-fire hit in the waiting.”

The album opens with the rousing, guitar-driven, one-two punch of The Truant, and The Cradle, the Brothel and the Bible School, whose driving riffs and soaring vocals evoke an innocent yearning for love and escape. Well-placed, off-kilter time signatures give the latter track a glorious lift.

As the album continues, a dark undercurrent begins to emerge beneath the catchy melodies. At once romantic and foreboding, Firetower is a tail of illicit seduction set to a string-laden, pulsing pop track. The driving, dual-vocal anthem World to Come runs together romantic obsession with cult fanaticism, while the escapist In Paradise evokes The Flesh’s early work, with skittering R&B beats and throbbing punk choruses.

Compulsion pairs a Rick James groove with Lynchian atmospherics and sticky pop melodies, while Justice fuses drummer Pete Angevine’s dub beats to doom-laden strings (conducted by bassist Jason Binnick). The driving goth-punk of Loyale leads into the breathless Kelis-meets-Misfits groove of Morning Sickness and the triumphant, avant-garage of Hydra & Hercules. The wistful, unadorned ballad Cross the Ocean brings the record to a poignant close.

History, Releases, and Production Details
The Flesh split their time between Brooklyn and Philadelphia. The band formed in New York City in 2002 after newly relocated Texas native Gabriella Zappia caught New Yorker Nat Halpern and Philadelphians Pete Angevine and Jason Binnick, performing in an early incarnation of the band at a local underground club. They have released 2 EPs and a debut LP, praised in the pages of such publications as SPIN, the Village Voice, and Vice Magazine.

From 2004-2006, THE FLESH toured the United States and Europe, appearing w/ Death from Above 1979, Hot Hot Heat, Man Man, IQU, The Dirtbombs, Oxford Collapse, Suicide, Glass Candy, Xiu Xiu, These Arms Are Snakes, Pretty Girls Make Graves, Dresden Dolls, Tom Tom Club, and many more.

Upon returning home from a European tour in 2006, The Flesh began work on Firetower. Their only plan going into the sessions, Halpern says, was “to do things that would be fresh and new for us.” They worked with co-producer, engineer, and longtime friend Chris Sanchez at Studio Sanchez Dos in Bridgeport, CT, where they experimented with new approaches: Gabriella sang and layered lead vocals, Nat and Pete utilized increased multi-track capacity for guitar and percussion overdubs, and Jason brought up some classical musician friends, leading them through string and horn arrangements on several songs.

Firetower was then mixed by the band’s good friend Joel Hamilton (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Book of Knots, Beauty Pill) at Studio G in Brooklyn NY, and mastered by Fred Kevorkian at Absolute Audio in New York, NY.

The Flesh is:
Pete Angevine: Drums, percussion
Jason Binnick: Bass
Nat Halpern: Guitar, vocals
Gabriella Zappia: Vocals, keyboards

OXBOW and BERGRAVEN Detail New Albums

Announce New Albums From OXBOW and BERGRAVEN!

"The Narcotic Story" (June 5th, 2007)

The malls whisper. The halls whisper. The phone rings. And you are mocked and shamed while walls shiver down like wet sand and it is noticed like you are noticed, which is to say: not at all. And through all of their glass, steel and formless cold you move like it moves, along and alone, and you sleep while standing and you stand while waiting for buses and cars and in clubs at bars.

And then there is change. Crystalline change.

And between spaces and for spaces of the full measure of IT ALL what was big becomes small and what's small becomes animal grand until it's you, and handfuls of you, running into the always firing sun: a love that spells its name along the frame of everything that's broken. For good. For ever. And so it goes that OXBOW'S THE NARCOTIC STORY, co-produced by Grammy-winning producer-mixer JOE CHICCARELLI [FRANK ZAPPA, AMERICAN MUSIC CLUB, THE SHINS, THE RACONTEURS] is the sixth chambered installment of a suicide that plays itself out on the hustings of a substanced and principled addiction to failure while the band plays on.

From their previous time and tutelage with the estimable STEVE ALBINI, seven records, multiple tours of Europe, Asia, and the United States, a documentary film [MUSIC FOR ADULTS], TV appearances [ViVA TV] and collaborations with a raft of luminaries of stage and screen - MARIANNE FAITHFULL, LYDIA LUNCH, JARBOE, KLAUS FLOURIDE, RICHARD KERN-OXBOW and their penchant for plumb lines of catastrophe direct THE NARCOTIC STORY, the first in a triptych [to later include both a film and a soundtrack] of successful [and beautiful] ruin.


OXBOW [and OXBOW's acoustic duo LOVE'S HOLIDAY] is touring Europe with ISIS from May 24th to June 22, 2007. With additional outings July 2nd in London and July 15th in Birmingham, England for the Supersonic Festival. U.S shows will be announced subsequent to their return.

OXBOW's vocalist EUGENE ROBINSON's book Fight: Or, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking [Harper Collins] is scheduled for a fall release and will also be followed by a spoken word tour.

More facts:

There is nothing contrived in the Oxbow oeuvre. And after the blood, sweat, tears, brilliance, and panache of their previous records, Narcotic Story IS an absolute tour de force—the kind of music and narrative (it follows the drugridden tales of Eugene’s alter ego, Frank) that can only be crafted from REAL experience and passion. This record has rampant blues hooks, serpentine vocals, and deep rhythm all over. Strap on. Sink in.

This is the first proper new full length for Oxbow on Hydra Head, following 2006’s audio and visual retrospective Love That’s Last: A Wholly Hypnographic and Disturbing Work Regarding Oxbow. This is a record that solidifies what we’ve referred to in our office as “the most important band in the world”. It’s going to be impossible to look past what is surely one of the last bastions of true music and performance, i.e. fucking art.

The Oxbow performance, as a recent SXSW stand-off reminds us, continues to engage and challenge like no other. Prepare to see Oxbow tour a ton for this new platter. They’re already confirmed as main support for ISIS in Europe.

Words on Oxbow:

Oxbow is expression in its purest form; they bring it in and spew it out—they are the great leveler. Unrepentant fury tempered with unparalleled musicianship. There has never been a band with will to form like this and within that will; there can only be one. Anybody who's been in the midst of an Oxbow performance knows the fear. If you embrace it you will be rewarded, if you deny it you better get your ass out of the room. - Scott Kelly/Neurosis

I've been cheered by Oxbow's career trajectory. - King Coffee, Butthole Surfers

What is it about Oxbow that strikes fear into the hearts of men, women, and children of all ilk and denomination? The band’s awe-inspiring predatory squall? Their lengthy history of confrontational live shows? Is it the fact that frontman Eugene Robinsonhas electrical tape over his ears and will stomp the tar out of you (gladly) if only you’d ask (or get too close)? Only the members of a band with albums entitled Fuckfest, King of the Jews (featuring a picture of Sammy Davis, Jr. on the cover) and The Balls in the Great Meatgrinder Collection would know. – DECIBEL MAGAZINE

Oxbow's compelling, ugly vision of hardcore inhabits the slow burning afterglow of some unspecified catastrophe... the band's commitment to only the most tormented musical expression produces no end of astonishing twists. - THE WIRE MAGAZINE

Rarely have I been so thoroughly seduced after an adverse reaction, and rarely have I been so driven to get up and thrash around and feel the blood pulse through my veins. - PITCHFORKMEDIA.COM

Eugene Robinson should have a phobia named after him: fear of hulking bodybuilders trained in mixed martial arts fighting with a thing for exhibitionism who front bands that play savage, jet engine-loud pummel-core and also dabble in porn and journalism. – SF WEEKLY

If you haven't been infected with the band's innovative approach to exorcising rhythmic demons, check out the boys' eerie aesthetic on their latest CD – XLR8R MAGAZINE

Known for frontman Eugene Robinson’s penchant for disrobing onstage as much as the band’s bombastic caterwauls of post-grunge dissonance, this album (five years since their last album, An Evil Heat) will loose the dam of confused ill will that’s likely been brewing inside the band – CMJ

A lot of bands bill their records as therapy, but Oxbow bleeds authenticity in a way most hardcore bands can only dream of. The band called Oxbow is a raw nerve in today's bland landscape of supposedly alternative music; you owe it to yourself to descend into their world. – SCENE POINT BLANK

(intro) (0:42)
Geometry of Business (4:11)

"Dödsvisioner" (May 22nd, 2007)

Bergraven's main man, Pär, turns the traditional blast-and-flay aesthetic of “frostbitten grimness” on its ear and comes at us with sweeping riff dirges, winding cinematic passages, melodic guitar interludes, tortured-yet-vaguely-authoritarian & Germanic vocal overtones and—get this—ambient pedal steel excursions. All of which is enough to make your fucking head spin, especially if you (like us) are down with weirdness that transcends weirdness-merely-for-the-sake-of-beingweird and comes out on the other side looking like a total fucking destroyer. What we’re saying is this: Dödsvisioner is not your typical black metal experience, and Bergraven is not your standard Swedish killing machine.

Bergraven’s Dödsvisioner is Hydra Head's second collaborative work with Sweden's Total Holocaust Records. Rife with complex dirge riffage, bleak and haunting melodies, and traditiondefying rhythms, this black metal record is as torturous as it is wholly engaging. File in line with other black metal visionaries like Deathspell Omega, Ondskapt, and Leviathan. You may not yet have heard of Bergraven, but we guarantee you Dödsvisioner is already of the elite.

Tracklisting for Dödsvisioner
Döende (8:46)
Av saknad släcker jag ljuset (1:56)
Ondkall (8:03)
Känsla av livets nästa skede (7:08)
Den svarta angstens essens (6:54)
Det man med själen... (6:27)
Ekot av bikt (6:38)
Döende (en avslutning) (8:52)

DAUGHTERS NYC Weekend w/ The Locust and Cattle Decapitation!

Invade NYC for 2 shows w/ The Locust and Cattle Decapitation

Providence masters of discomfort, DAUGHTERS, will be coming to NYC and Brooklyn w/ the sc-fi- horror-face-pummeling assault of The Locust and Cattle Decapitation this FRIDAY April 13th @ REBEL (251 w. 30th btwn 7th and 8th – NYC) and SATURDAY April 14th @ EUROPA BAR (98-104 Meserole Ave, Brooklyn) in support of their debut full-length "Hell Songs" out August 8th 2006 on Hydra Head!

"Galaxies heavier than its predecessor" - CMJ

"The band manages to express musically in a short timespan what many bands of this genre don't in their entire career." - Lambgoat

"Daughters split the difference between Hella and the Locust into tiny little pieces before eating the pieces, barfing them up and then eating them again." -

"Led by monstrous drums, metal vocals, and a general vibe of unrelenting chaos, the quintet of Alexis Marshall (vocals), Brent Frattini (guitar), Jon Syverson (drums), Nicholas Andrew Sadler (guitar), and Samuel Moorehouse Walker (bass), unleash the fury on their latest album, Hell Songs." -

"The quintet plays less grind and more plodding doom-core (read: an amphetamine-charged Arab on Radar). They still sound like Daughters, but even more chaotic." - Decibel Magazine

Providence, RI’s DAUGHTERS, are back w/ the follow-up to their “Canada Songs” album Robotic Empire, 2003) entitled “Hell Songs,”, an entirely new approach to music in general. After their last US tour w/ epic instrumental-rock masters, Red Sparowes and Pelican and giving new meaning to the word brutal, DAUGHTERS have expanded their minds and abilities, introducing unholy and outrageous new elements to their sound, leaving behind whatever could be considered typical within their genre, and fitting in perfectly to the monstrous Hydra Head roster. At times sounding like label-mates Oxbow or cult-legends Arab-on-Radar (on steroids), “Hell Songs” hits like a Mac Truck, pummeling its listener in a way that is, to-date, unmatched.

"What the fuck you guys? The vocals: What happened to them?”
- A fan posting on Daughters’ MySpace page

After staking out a reasonably comfortable bus-stop bench near the same wretched intersection where Lightning Bolt, the Locust, Oxbow and the Dillinger Escape Plan work their filthy corners, Providence, Rhode Island’s Daughters slowly unzipped and whipped out 2003’s Canada Songs (Robotic Empire). The art-school kids shit themselves; Some Girls, Melt Banana and Doomriders went on tour with them, and the dudes over at Three One G asked them to cover a Birthday Party song (”Marry Me (Lie! Lie!)”) for a tribute compilation (Release the Bats). Last but not least, the pimps at Hydra Head came calling for sloppy seconds. They brought a bottle of Cristal, a pile of limited-edition colored vinyl and some Astroglide; pants were charmed down to at least knee-level, and nine months later, a misshapen fetus called Hell Songs was delivered by Andrew Schneider (Scissorfight, Blue Man Group, Cave In, Keelhaul).

Within seconds, it began sucking greedily at the teat of mass dissemination. It was an ugly little bastard, with an encephalitic head, and it looked suspiciously like the mailman. It shit its pants a lot, just like those goddamn art school kids, and it would not fucking shut up. So, like the socially responsible parents they are, Daughters sent it out into the world to become a twitchy, axe murderer/chronic masturbator type with a veritable laundry list of physical and mental deficiencies. Nobody hires fidgety miscreants like this anymore (not even Catholic schools), so Hell Songs returned to that wretched intersection, looking vaguely familiar to the locals, only sweatier and more viciously deranged.

Sometimes that bus stop becomes too much to withstand; sometimes he/she drinks too much and puts the lotion in the basket. Sometimes he/she forgets to take his/her medication. But that’s okay; there are some things modern medicine will never cure. He/she is looking at you right now, as a matter of fact, and he/she thinks youíre kind of cute.

SHAPE w/ Large Professor!


CLOUDS Kickoff US Tour w/ Autonym!

Boston's balls-out, whisky-con-Jager-fueled heavy hitters, CLOUDS, announce their first ever U.S. Tour (taking along LA's politically charged, technical-spazz-punks, AUTONYM) in support of the band's debut full-length, "Legendary Demo," out February 6th on Hydra Head!

more information:

"Legendary Demo's songs could make any connoisseur of bong-rock put down their Kyuss and Alabama Thunderpussy CDs long enough to give a bona fide discerning listen." -

"These dudes can seriously shred." -

"This album is good - really good." -

Stream "Legendary Demo" HERE!

They say you can take the kid out of the rock, but you can’t take the rock out
of the kid…or some shit like that. This is especially difficult when “the kid” in
question is Cave In’s Adam McGrath, fearless leader and vocalist/guitarist of Clouds, an outfit that delivers unbridled action-rock harking back to the mid/late-’90s Man’s Ruin garage onslaught—which, in turn, owes its
collective hearing loss to the likes of the Wipers, the Bad Brains, the Stooges, and the MC5. So you can see what kind of lineage we’re talking about here.

But wait—that’s not all these Boston gents have to offer: From nasty psych and Southern power grooves to (believe it or not) “Party Grunge” and sax’d-out dub, Legendary Demo has it all. Unlike anything else in Hydra Head’s vast back catalogue, this is truly a revelation.

Clouds defines band incest like no other! Their ranks feature current and/orformer members of Cave In, Kid Kilowatt, 27, Miltown, Suicide File, Hope Conspiracy, The A-Team, Righteous Jams (for two shows), Panic, Green Island (ska band), Permanent Damage, Piebald’s touring band, Zozobra’s
upcoming touring band, and even a former Cast Iron Hike roadie!
How’s that
for a “selling point”?

Though they wear their influences on their sleeves proudly, Clouds stand apart from their progenitors because the melting pot sounds unique. They lock and stock their way through a full length’s worth of manic tracks that meld (seriously, folks) ZZ Top, the Stooges, Karp, Sun Ra, and the Bad Brains. Backed by in-the-pocket rhythm chops and fronted by dual vocals, Legendary Demo amalgamates tight riffs with moodier passages.

Just off a UK tour with Stephen Brodsky's Octave Museum, Clouds are ready to take their pummeling live show to the streets of the US for the first time since their inception.

"Legendary Demo" Tracklist:

1. New Amnesia
2. Pressure
3. Live It For Now
4. Party Grunge
5. Mountain Jim
6. Guardian's Eyes
7. Magic Hater
8. Quartulli Dub

“If Autonym continues on in the direction of this album, their noisy hardcore may just lead them to the promise land.” –

“Shall We Skip To Excessive Celebration? bombards the listener from start to finish with songs acting as short bursts of speed and intensity that evoke an urgency and sense of purpose welcome in the hardcore genre.” –

"Discordant assaults, lovingly put to tape by Pete Lyman of another searing L.A. squad, Year Future." -

AUTONYM are the LA by way of Philadelphia based discordant punk attack brought to you by some soon to be heroes in the scene.

Produced and engineered by Year Future bassist Pete Lyman (see also Neon Blonde and The Locust) at Infrasonic Sound (The Mars Volta, VSS) in Los Angeles, CA, “Shall We Skip To Excessive Celebration?” documents an underground hardcore-punk revival last heard to be this amazing by championed legends Swing Kids and Yaphet Kotto and more recently, citing influences by the likes of The #12 Looks Like You, Fear Before the March of Flames, The Red Chord, and more.

The band has also recently brought some controversy their way after vocalist Will Angelos (also self-proclaimed author releasing an internet-only novel later in 2007) posted some commentary on religion in the punk rock community (the entire article can be read on the band’s myspace blog: which, after a successful US tour with Secret Lives of The Freemasons and Across Five Aprils, brought fans and foes alike responding to the band’s stance on the issue (Angelos has also been defending his opinion to the likes of who’s fans have had their share of reaction, as did the manager of christian-core heroes, Underoath)

Vocalist Will Angelos comments on the band’s debut album:

“Shall We Skip To Excessive Celebration? is the debut full length from Autonym. The band set out to create a sound that redefined both the hardcore and punk genres and create a concept album more far reaching and genuine than the many others that have flooded the music scene as of late. With the help of Producer/Engineer Pete Lyman (Neon Blonde, The Locust, Bassist of Year Future), Autonym created a new sound that pushes the boundaries of hardcore. With innovative guitar work, inventive time signatures ex. 23/7 on The Sinner and His Patient Wife, landmark drum work, and groundbreaking vocals and lyrical content, Autonym has put together a debut full length that is both original and sincere.

With a 200-page novel and video accompanying the entire album, (now w/ new distribution through Red-Eye Distribution) Autonym has found a way to return to the traditional values and earnest sound of early punk while creating music arranged intricately in both style and concept. The upcoming debut album and accompanying novel, along with constant touring, has caused a stir in independent music as Autonym makes its grand entrance asking Shall We Skip To Excessive Celebration?”

"Shall We Skip To Excessive Celebration?" Tracklisting:
1. The First Dinner
2. The Luminary
3. Boundless Accord
4. Battered Wife Syndrome
5. Home
