Los Angeles Afro-Nerd hardcore quartet Black Cock (Temple of Dagon, ex-Colombian Necktie) released their debut single, “My Own Shit”, yesterday, March 3, to coincide with the anniversary of the Rodney King police beating. The three-minute stormer radiates with crossover groove and crust grit and oozes with potent ire. Vocalist Dwane Burgess said the following regarding the track:
“My own shit is a declaration of personal autonomy and self reliance. It is an expressed willingness to do whatever it takes to build a foundation that will sustain our families for generations to come. It is a promise that any threat or obstacle will be dealt with accordingly. It is a rejection of any ideas, projections, perceptions or expectations forced upon us. It is a warning to mind your fucking business.”

In Svbterranean’s Album Dissections, artists break down the construction and/or lyrical themes of their records track by track.
Earlier this month Nashville powerviolence duo Thetan unleashed their face-ripping, sophomore full-length, Abysmal, via Anti-Corporate Music. The 18-track, 18-minute-long record assaults listeners with hyper-speed, hyper-violent bass-and-drum hardcore that doesn’t let up. Fans of Charles Bronson, Spazz, and all things Slap-a-Ham are encouraged to pay attention.
Thetan bassist/vocalist Dan Emery was kind enough to drop by and participate in our Album Dissections series to breakdown the construction of the album as well as its deeply personal lyrical themes. Check out what Emery had to say below. Continue Reading

We discussed the bands upcoming musical endeavors, energy drinks and the recent benefit show the band played in their hometown (and mine!) of Little Rock, Arkansas. Enjoy. Continue Reading

Wyoming hardcore outfit Closed In (ex-Reproacher) recently released the debut single from their upcoming demo, One With Pain. Titled “Teeth”, the new track features muscular, sludgy riffs that hammer and gallop in the vein of Cursed. Check out the track after the break.

Discordant, dissonant, and filled to the brim with sonic twists and turns, Femur’s brand of unorthodox noise will appease fans of hardcore’s more chaotic side. On Red Marks, the full-length debut from the Thunder Bay, Ontario trio, the band craft over 40 minutes of unhinged aural violence that merges mathcore and sludge into a caustic mix. Fans of early Gaza, Coalesce, and the like will want to pay attention.
In this interview with Svbterranean, Femur discuss the album in question, the origins of the project, their writing process, and more.
