Norwegian post-hardcore quartet Of Grace and Hatred will release their new full-length record, Toxic Vows, on November 16 via Loyal Blood Records. In anticipation of its release, we at Svbterranean bring you an exclusive stream of the album’s fifth track, “Demonic Courtesy”. The frenetic, shape-shifting effortlessly walks the line between dizzying hardcore à la Every Time I Die and the emotional passages of Touché Amoré. Couple that with brash vocals in the vein of The Blood Brothers and you’ve got quite the jam on your hands.
Check out the track after the break. Continue Reading

Extreme music is an odd and fickle thing, constantly changing and moving through various trends and phases, constantly picking one subgenre has it’s acceptable choice to get in to the group, before slowly fading them into the background of life when it becomes apparent. You then name drop the band, letting people know that you knew and liked a certain band and a certain type of music before it was cool, making you cool for a time, until ultimately that band falls behind the curve, leaving you to find another band and another subgenre to exploit for selfish gains. I mention this because we are all guilty of it, and at the same time, it is the way we expand as people, learning about new ideas and bands, and help to create cornerstones for what we create ourselves.

A brief anecdote: in 2007 or 2008 I went to see Ottawa, Ontario band Buried Inside perform live. As one of the opening bands was setting up their frontman unassumingly took his place centre stage and they began playing shortly after. The sounds being projected from their singer was unlike anything I had ever heard up to that point. If there had been any paint left on the walls on the venue, the sound of this man’s voice surely would’ve peeled it from the surfaces. The band was Congress and their vocalist was Jamie Hooper. When not dabbling in noise rock Hooper spent some time fronting 3 inches of Blood.
Scottish hardcore outfit Suffer/Wallow are poised to release their heavy-hitting self-titled debut this Friday, August 31. The forthcoming release explores the effects of sleep paralysis on the mind by way of genre-bending hardcore that is equally emotive and unpredictable. From the squalling screamo of “Wraith”, to the 90s metallic hardcore inspired of “Deadweight”, to the Touche Amoré-esque post-hardcore of “Deprivation”, Suffer/Wallow proudly refuses to stick to the script and offer up a debut full of surprises.
In anticipation of its release, we at Svbterranean bring you an exclusive first-listen of the record in its entirety. Fans of post-hardcore of all shapes in sizes would be wise to check it out. Stream it below. Continue Reading
