hey, here are some albums I liked this year
 
by the way, what was I thinking when I called myself [i]larvtard[/i]? ugh.

Forget sludge; this is the most soul-crushingly heavy piece of [i]music[/i] I've heard since 'hatred for mankind' by Dragged Into Sunlight.

They also released a cool EP this year titled 'master we perish.'

It's a different style of metal, but the bands are similar in tone; that is, absolute vitriol and disgust. Imagine a malicious demon pouring acid into your eardrums. (And not the good kind; if anything, this is the sound of a [I]bad[/I], bad trip.)

Maybe the album cover will you give an idea of what this sounds like. Hoax doesn't give a fuck, and they can't stop boasting about it. This is bitter, yet lethargic hardcore punk with grimy noise (or maybe it's just the thin production) coloring it rancid, a mold that will not cease to grow. Your parents will die.

When I write about music, I try to avoid cliches as much as possible. (Or when writing in general.) One particular cliche that is rampant in the world of music criticism is calling a piece of music "well-crafted"; these are musicians, not blacksmiths! But listen to the opening track of [I]Eldir Nott[/I], "Vigil," and tell me that that Fyrnask haven't mastered the "craft" of repugnant, yet absolutely [I]gorgeous [/I]black metal. Look me in the fucking eye. (Or show me something you like better. I can't hear everything.)

Hey, did you know Stephen Brodsky of Cave In and a few other bands is a singer-songwriter, and a rad one at that? Well, now you do. [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECb_9a0c-VM"]My favorite song of his[/URL] isn't on this EP, but it's one of my favorite songs ever, so here you go. Fall in love.

Also, here's a picture of his face just because.

BTW, if these images are too large for any of you (making the page load too slowly), let me know!

I did know that actually. I saw him open for Pelican years ago. I didn't know he had a new EP out though. Nice!

larvtard 12-30-2013 01:42 PM

How was Pelican live? I missed them on their most recent tour. I imagine they'd be amazing.

Hey, remember the last scene of Requiem for a Dream? You know, the 'ass to ass'? Well, that was your girlfriend last night with one of the [I]carnies [/I]in town for the circus. Except for one thing: she was totally [I]enjoying [/I]it, bro. Every goddamn second of it. That slut. Oh, what's that? Now all your friends have abandoned you for being a little pussy? Haha, you [I]are [/I]a pussy, man.

[I]Everything is fucked[/I].

But hey, um, don't go starting anything or whatever. You definitely shouldn't go chug a liter of Johnnie Walker Red. That guy walking down the street, looking the wrong way at you? Yeah, he's not looking at you, man; he's minding his own business. If anything, he's purposely [I]trying [/I]to look away, 'cause he can [I]smell [/I]the whiskey-fueled rage emanating out of your pores. Seriously, bro, go home. I wasn't trying to antagonize you! I'm sorry if you took it that way. Go home. You're not in your right mind now. You're gonna regret this in the morning.

I want to run around in circles and pace the floor and chug a 40 and then trip and fall into a puddle of my own vomit. Only then would I feel truly alive.

The sound of your suburbanite ass on PCP.

So it was a normal day at the gym, y'know? Lifting with my bros. Reppin' those muscles for the ladies, 'cause they love that shit. When all of a sudden these fuckin' DOGS come barrelling in out of nowhere - like, how the fuck did they even [I]get [/I]in? The door was locked, you know... it was just like, all of a sudden, like I said, I turned around and they were there. Jaws drooling red. And they looked pissed [I]off[/I], man! And I was too, especially 'cause they started eating my friends. But, whatever. I shot the bastards, then headed over to my lady's flat.
