Jason Williamson – “Discourse chapters that dark silence in the vaults of the unskilled worker. The acceptance of all that is horrible and endured. Moments of connection between living vessels are rare but sometimes they do pass through the wire and lives are understood for a flicker of a second.”
“Eton Alive chronicles the scenes outside, mostly sleeping bags. Dulled reds, greens and cardboard head boards. Paper cups, bitten around the edges, full of copper.'

Italy’s Throw Down Bones are something of an enigma in the experimental underground. Since the release of their highly-praised 2015 self-titled album, they’ve picked up a notorious reputation on the European live circuit for their pulverising, constantly-mutating live shows.
In a review of the debut, album listeners were told to “make no mistake, this is dance music” and that may have been true back then but now, back with their second album titled Two, the band have taken that to a whole new extreme.
Ditching the hypnotic coldwave tendencies of their earlier work for an all-out sonic assault of industrial four-to-the-floor rhythms and screeching acid house. Two is due for release via Fuzz Club Records on October 26th and see’s the band deal in floor-shaking industrial techno-post-punk occasionally steeped in a euphoric acid-house sheen.
Where the old Throw Down Bones was better suited for intimate venues and psych fests (of which they were a frequent staple, from Liverpool to Eindhoven and everywhere in between), this new evolution sees them turn their eyes to the most underground techno clubs and the sleaziest warehouse venues.
Imagine Death In Vegas, Factory Floor and Aphex Twin jamming in a room together and you might come close but Throw Down Bones would be reluctant to point to any ‘influences’. For them, their corrosive industrial workouts are simply the product of their environment and attitudes, as opposed to who they’re listening to at any given moment.
The two key members of Throw Down Bones are Francesco Vanni and Dave Gali but on this effort, their producer James Aparicio also played an integral part in writing the album. Francesco spends his time building bespoke FX pedals and analogue synths under the name Noise Militia and James was formerly the in-house engineer at the Mute Records studio, his credits including Spiritualized, Liars, Nick Cave, Depeche Mode, Mogwai and many, many more.
With Noise Militia prototypes littered around the studio, Francesco and Dave’s knack for instrumental experimentation and James’ studio prowess, it should come as no surprise that the result is a collection of tracks that push Throw Down Bones’ electronica right to the brink. If you like your music intense, punishing and ear-drum-rattling then this is the record for you.
The first three tracks on the album ‘First Follower’, ‘We Are Drugs’ and ‘Slow Violence’ lay out the bands mission from the off, bursting through a pulsing electronic throb are unrelenting motorik basslines that twist and contort as they circles around and around and around, layers of juddering hardware electronics constantly punching through.
Then there’s ‘Golovkin’, a merciless all-out rave track that zaps you right in the cortex and the electro-throb of ‘Zero Day Exploit’ that, like a cyber-attack of the same name, is an unstoppable attack on the senses – it’s less in-your-face than the rest of the album but try and stop that programmed acid-tinged groove from tearing through your bloodstream.
It’s too late, you won’t stand a chance. If their earlier instrumental-oriented works leant into dance territory, then this is the band embracing that with open arms and wide eyes ready to soundtrack the mother of all parties, one punctuated by pure hedonism and a sense that this could very well be the last dance on this wretched rock.

On Ultra Satans second 7” release on Höga Nord Rekords, the band is developing a new genre and concept: ”Freedom Rock”, which is also the title on one of the tracks.
”Freedom Rock” is a step beyond ”World Music” which would be the wrong label when Ultra Satan sounds too spaced out and out of this world.
On the second track ”Anti Clock”, Ultra Satan hit strikes against the hysterical Swedish mortgage market, how safety destroys creativity and also against the worthless tokens of appreciation you receive from our corrupt and ultra capitalistic society.
Ultra Satan is like a space being, living alone in an enormously big and empty space station, orbiting our planet. With mathematical precision this genius creates music that effects us earthlings on a transcendental plane and shakes the foundation we lead or lives upon.

Comin’ in again with all guns blazin’ - Warrior Soul have a new record set for release in June ‘19, affectionately called 'Rock n’ Roll Disease'. The album is the follow up to last year’s very successful and critically acclaimed, raw and raucous 'Back On The Lash' release. RnRD promises to turn out to be a real stormer.
"We are going for the same feel as 'Lash' but honing it in more and picking it up a bit. ‘Back On The Lash’ was raw, fun and loose, this is too, but we are pushing it all over the top" says main man Kory Clarke – Clarke is using the same writing and playing team in the studio as the ‘Back On The Lash’ release ensuring continuity and allowing him to keep hitting his current rich vein of form - Song titles include ‘Up The Dose’ and ‘Off My Face’ – Oh yes, if you wanna start your Summer rockin’, go out and get a 'Rock n Roll Disease'.
“We live on credit, we live on dope, there's no promises When you're livin' on hope”- Blown Away (lyrics by Kory Clarke). There's been a lot of speculation lately about the ‘death of the rock star’. We keep losing them, but we don't make any new ones. Part of the reason is that there just isn't a million-dollar infrastructure to create megawatt stars anymore at least not the kind that play distorted guitars, and part of it is just a radical shift in the culture towards quieter, insulated lifestyles.”
"You mighta had dope, guns, and riots in the streets, but your kids have smartphones and Netflix and they could not care less about your cyclops revolution. Which is a bit of a nightmare for the last true rock star, a wild-card from the streets of Detroit, Kory Clarke who made his reputation and career on being the baddest motherf*cker in all of Badsville with an incendiary socio-political agenda and a roar-for-war that rattles mountains." Classic Rock.
Warrior Soul shows aren't just gigs. They are profane sermons delivered with high velocity and maximum volume and this is what this new Warrior Soul album is all about!

£13.99California post-black metal quartet Wild Hunt have landed a big sound on “Afterdream of the Reveller,” the title track to their just-announced second album. All of this began when Wild Hunt's guitar player Drew Cook unexpectedly passed away in April 2015 (his family has chosen to withhold the cause of death), on the morning that the band was about to embark on a two-week tour with Cormorant.Visit product page →
The remaining members dropped the tour and instead released Scroll and Urn, an EP they had recently completed and were originally planning on selling on the road. Because of what had happened, Scroll and Urn was released as a tribute to Drew in the days following his passing. It remains Cook's last recorded work.
In June 2015, as a way of coping and moving forward in the wake of Cook's death, Wild Hunt began work on their next record. "Nest of Flames," "Palingenesia" and "Choir of a Greater Sea" were originally written and performed with Cook and were now properly recorded for the first time, and one of Cook's remaining riffs made up the final section of "Odious Gamble."
Bassist West Lenz amicably left the band in June 2016 after having contributed riffs for "Odious Gamble" and having recorded parts for "Nest of Flames" and "Choir of a Greater Sea." This left drummer Harland Burkhart and guitarist Greg Brace to write and record the majority of the album by themselves.
They composed and tracked the songs piece by piece in their rehearsal space and over email, all while making no announcements about the state of the band--as far as most in the SF Bay Area scene knew, Wild Hunt had broken up when Cook passed away. Cook's death heavily informed the lyrical content of the record, though Afterdream of the Reveller isn't exactly a concept album.
The album contains themes of depression, descent into madness and mental purgatory, death and its impact on those close to the deceased. Those themes help form a loose narrative throughout the record, though the album ends on a hopeful and triumphant note (both musically and lyrically) with Palingenesia, a song that alludes to the ideas of resurrection and reincarnation.
In July 2016, Jamison Kester was recruited to fill the second guitar slot. He had shared the stage several times with Wild Hunt with his prior band Infinite Waste, and was one of the few guitar players in the bay area with the technical ability to play Wild Hunt's music.
As the band stepped into the mixing of Afterdream of the Reveller in December 2016, they contacted Avinash Mittur to help them overcome technical hurdles they had encountered. He had befriended Burkhart, Brace and Cook years prior as an intern at Trakworx Studio, whereScroll and Urn and the first Wild Hunt album Before the Plane of Angles were mastered.
Upon hearing of the vacant bass player position Mittur offered to try out for the band and the new lineup played its first show in May 2017, where much of the material from Afterdream was performed live for the first time. The four members of Wild Hunt's current lineup were all present at Cook's memorial in October 2015, and Kester and Mittur first met after the latter had written a tribute piece to Cook.
