Back in May, Denver mathcore trio Kenaima took a quick break from their spring tour to record their previously-unreleased, off-kilter single “Letter of Resignation”. Recorded live at GPMR Studios in Kansas City, “Letter of Resignation” is a proper follow-up to the band’s chaotic 2017 release, Haste. With all of its jagged rhythms and dissonant guitar freakouts, “Letter of Resignation” will more than satisfy fans of spastic, seizure-inducing metal. Continue Reading

I agreed to review the newest album “Deads” by Danish band LLNN, due to the comparison to phenomenal band Botch in the email. Judging by my opening statement, this was far from the truth. LLNN are nothing like Botch other than having parts that are syncopated and off-time. While this name dropping is problematic, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t a great band underneath, which is what happened with this album. Continue Reading
