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.

Fawn Limbs construct an unyielding, dissonant hellscape on their debut EP, Towing Heads.
Comprised of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Eeli Helin (Mireplaner) and drummer Lee Fisher (ex-Psyopus), this Finland/Pennsylvania-based duo harks back to the “mathgrind” explosion of the early 2000s, but pushes that sound into some pretty dark territories. With a mere nine minutes at their disposal, Fawn Limbs unleash an abundance of discordant grind, rife with grim subject matter, that will rearrange listeners’ faces. Continue Reading
