jesus. jesus christ. this is some absolutely mental shit. this came out in 1985? what the fuck???? Knees and Bones is genuinely one of the most mortifying experiences ive ever had with music. this album is torture, this album is live footage of a dark web redroom. i can't really describe what a fucking hell chamber Knees and Bones truly is, it's something you really needa experience for yourself, but goddamn like, fuck. fucking wow.

Knees and Bones, in terms of noise ... read more

i don't know about you guys, but personally this is just a bit too sporadic and scattered for me to really enjoy it. While You Were Out, in comparison to the past 4 day of noise entries, is much more in line with classic Japanese noise styles popularized by people like Merzbow. it lacks structure, it's not drony or ambient, it's wild, untamable noise that's hitting you from all angles. Endo differs from Merzbow though in his approach to this style - whereas Merzbow makes ... read more

listening to this record is allowing yourself to enter the darkest, dirtiest caves of rock music. Between the Dead sounds exactly like what the name implies - this music was found, buried and corrupted, in a pile of bodies. or maybe, these are what the conversations between the dead sound like? either work honestly. it's heavy, grimy, and caked in years of dirt and dust. and that's all a big compliment. this album is definitely noisy, absolutely undoubtedly a fuckfest of ... read more

jesus this is some terrifying noise. this is horror movie level shit, music that shakes me to my fuckin core - at least some of the songs do. Sheer Hellish Misama is a very respectable and dark noise record, but it's a bit too inconsistent for my tastes. it's a bit all over the place, with each song hitting a distinct style in the noise genre - you have more ambient sounds like the opener, Impotent Hummer, hellish, untameable ... read more

mmmm, MMMM! now this is some good fuckin noise. i've only seen holsgr on AOTY as a reviewer, this is my first time both hearing he made music and actually hearing his music, and let me just say i'm pretty damn impressed. Hypnoise, while honestly not being super hypnotic, is an incredibly dense, fuzzy excursion into some very thick and meaty noise territory. Hypnoise is unique from most other noise records i've heard just due to it's sheer weight and size - it's not ... read more

Ah, I know the issue. It won't let me add a 1 by the end of it for some reason. Imma try and see how that could be fixed. Maybe just character limit

This is oddly specific, but can you listen to Richard D. James Album by Aphex Twin? Not for a list or anything, just a request.

I would really love to hear your honest opinions and critiques on my new single, Crushed. This is the second song I have written, but you should be able to find the first one on my Bandlab profile if you want to, just know it isn't anything special.
This is the link to the new song.
