New Release: Filth Is Eternal- The Ritual

May be a black-and-white image of one or more people

The mighty Filth Is Eternal have released, “The Ritual,” another blistering new song from their upcoming album, Love Is A Lie, Filth Is Eternal (out NOW). Speaking on the song, guitarist Brian McClelland said “‘The Ritual’ is a stomping cut about canonizing our own destruction. Sometimes we do it ourselves, and sometimes others help us out. After watching tech companies flatten our Seattle neighborhoods, pushing people out for years, how can you not take it personally? The Ritual pits the internal and external forces against each other and ponders a final result, to find water flowing underground.” And with that in mind, the ferociousness is absolutely delivered on this track! Personally, I can’t wait for Filth Is Eternal to announce a full tour. This band is one of those that you should be paying attention to!!

Band Of The Week: Fucked and Bound

When I first heard that members of He Whose Ox Is Gored were involved in a side project my curiosity was perked. Then when I heard that it was going to be a hardcore/punk band, I was ecstatic. Fucked and Bound is the name of the band and it delivers a righteous slab of unrelenting and ferocious hardcore. Their debut album Suffrage (released by Atomic Action Records) is 13 songs of pure heaviness, attitude, and anger. Fronted by Lisa Mungo, she screams her heart out and it’s furious and in your face. Her conviction of the lyrics as she spits them out in the mic are some of the most honest I’ve heard in a long time. The band themselves comprised of Brian McClelland (Guitar), Curtis Parker (Bass) and Matt Chandler (Drums) blast through riffs and beats that pummel and run you over with the right amount of brutality. Fucked and Bound is just what is needed in today’s political and social climate. Do yourselves a favor and throw this album on and unleash the inner beast inside you.

Band Of The Week (updated)- He Whose Ox Is Gored

There are a handful of bands that I’ve written about here that really get me excited. One of those bands is He Whose Ox Is Gored. Ever since I first heard them, I’ve become enthralled by what they do. This four piece from Seattle is starting to really take the underground music scene by storm. Their mix of doom, shoegaze, and ambience are perfectly blended into their heavy and emotional sound. Their full length album The Camel, The Lion, The Child is still in constant rotation on my stereo and turntable. One thing that I really love about He Whose Ox Is Gored is the way the sparse vocals resonate through their songs. The lyrics and vocals add another dimension to their hypnotic sound. It’s almost as though the vocals invoke a whole different beast.

He Whose Ox Is Gored is the type of band that can transcend just being another heavy band. They have all the parts to make them not only stand out among their peers but, also the talent to really leave their own mark and inspire other bands. Do yourself a favor and buy their album and play it loud and proudly. You’ll thank me later for it.
