Section H8 Delivers Loud And Concise Call To Arms With Phase One

Combining the visceral intensity of Youth Code (One half of that outfit, Ryan George, coincidentally provides the samples and synths on Phase One) with an unbridled ’90’s Hardcore attitude (Kind of a mix of Biohazard and, honestly, Type O Negative’s early days), Section H8 is bringing a refreshing brand of concise shredding Metal to the masses.

Aesthetic Perfection Embrace Patreon, Dive Into The Black On Newest Electronic Masterpiece

My Aesthetic Perfection education is pretty ass backwards. I was introduced to them when the Cabaret album was unleashed (Our review of Imperfect is here), covered the most recent EP (Which you can read here) and THEN was introduced to A Violent Emotion through a Spotify playlist within the last couple of months. In conclusion, my frame of reference for Aesthetic Perfection is everywhere!

Dead Girls Corp. Glow On Industrial-Sized Goth Classic Bloody Noses and Hand Grenades

Bloody Noses and Hand Grenades, the debut from Dead Girls Corp., is a rollicking good time that brings to mind the best Industrial had to offer in the late ’90’s combined with the best production values of today to create the most unholy union of sounds since John Lennon and Yoko Ono started collaborating.

Singles! Replicant, “Lifelike”

The title track to a lost album is what “Lifelike”, the latest from Chicago’s Replicant, is being branded as and if this is any indication of what the rest of that record was going to sound like then we’re praying to the Electro Gods that the rest is found soon!

Goo Munday Reinvigorates Electro On Fabulous 9 Lives

Goo Munday, where have you been all my life? We allude to missing out on a lot of artists in these pages because there’s a lot out there to consume. And if your tastes are as varied as ours then it’s even more overwhelming at times so you’ve got to know where to look or who to trust.

Already giving us all the heart eyes because of recent releases from Kanga and Strvngers, NGP has a slew of awesomesauce lately including the just released Standalone release, Mr. Kitty’s next opus (A double album!), and Goo Munday, the focus of this post.
