Leviathan: True Traitor, True Whore

Leviathan: True Traitor, True Whore
Released: 2011 (Profound Lore Records)

The only reason I’m posting this is because Jeff Whitehead supposedly raped his girlfriend with tattoo equipment. I didn’t know the guy did tattoos but he does and apparently used his utensils to brutalize a woman. Fuck this guy. I used to like Leviathan but after hearing this I’m totally turned off by anything associated with him, especially people named Jeff, white people, and heads (of all varieties).

There’s this great blog I read sometimes called Sunny Cellars. Go there to check out the record by clicking here.

I’m still in the moving process so posts will continue to be sporadic. Thanks.

Leviathan: The Blind Wound LP

Leviathan: The Blind Wound
Released: 2006 (Southern Lord Records)

I don’t know much about Leviathan. They’re an American black metal band and they did a split with Xasthur a while back. This record contains five solid black metal tracks and was only released on vinyl. It’s one of my favorite black metal albums from Southern Lord; it should be yours too.

Here is a track from The Blind Wound.

Wyqm/Moloch split LP

Wyqm/Moloch split LP
Released: 2011 (Death Agonies and Screams)

I first discovered Wyqm at Hospital Records in NYC. I was looking through a bunch of black metal LP’s, searching for something new and exciting and found their self titled record. The owner played it and I was hooked – melodic guitars dueling over a drum machine with agonized screaming. I’ve played their self titled LP a bunch of times and still enjoy it. Recently Wyqm did a split LP with the Ukrainian band Moloch and their contribution to this release is incredible. The label, Death Agonies and Screams, put up Wyqm’s side of the record for free and it’s just as incredible as their first LP.

Bhang Khang: Demo 2011

Bhang Khang: Demo 2011
Released: 2011 (Self Released)

My band was supposed to play with these guys a few weeks back. One fucked car later and we didn’t but I still saw them live – I was quite impressed. They play hardcore incorporating a wide variety of influences (black metal, power violence, sludge, etc.) but instead of it become annoying and banal they pull it off. Unfortunately I think they’re breaking up and, like most hardcore bands, lasted only a moment.

Here is a clip I found of them live. The sound quality is mediocre and its short but it demonstrates their power live.

Bhang Khang has released their first demo online and you can download it for free. It contains six songs and each one is quite excellent.
