Louisville noisy hardcore outfit Comess are poised to release their debut full-length, Botched & Flailed, tomorrow, June 15. Full of angular guitars, tremendous low-end, and grimy dissonance, Botched & Flailed is a brooding and ugly hardcore that packs in as much punch as possible within 28 minutes. Think of the unpredictable chaos of Coalesce crossed with the noisy grooves of Will Haven and you get a basic idea of the violence that awaits you.
In anticipation of is release, we at Svbterranean are excited to bring you an exclusive full stream of the record in all its heavy glory. Check out the goods after the break. Continue Reading

Wrong’s debut ep Stop Giving marked a shift in the songwriting canon of Eric Hernandez/Ryan Haft. Previously the pair logged many miles in post-hardcore outfit Capsule. The latter was more than capable of countless arrangement and feel changes in literally under 60 seconds whereas the former adopted an approach more akin to New York jazz/noise/groove legends Helmet. With Haft and Hernandez time-tested work ethic, Stop Giving was followed by an 11 song, self-titled full-length album a short time later. Wrong was notable for not only its release on powerhouse Relapse records but also for it’s marked growth in songwriting, execution, and overall intensity. Continue Reading

German post-hardcore outfit Remember Why We’re Here recently released the official video for their track “T.D.T.S.T.I.B.O.R.T.U.I.

Fans of The Fall of Troy and the like should take notice. Check out the video after the break and stream their debut album.
*Stay Trve – an (in)frequent column that aims to help counterbalance potential audio malaise and a nearly total saturation of sub-mediocre artists in the current music industry.
Time has been kind to the sounds of Richmond, Virginia’s Engine Down. Relentless touring and exceptionally high-quality records afforded them a loyal fan base during their 9-year career. Despite a staggering work ethic, the success of the likes of which their peers like Circa Survive, Thursday, and Alexisonfire achieved, eluded Engine Down. Rest assured, going back and revisiting their recordings will move even the most jaded fan of all things brainy, guitar driven, and complex.
