HAAN is a blistering 4 piece noise rock band from NYC, operating in the spirit of all that description implies. In the grand, grimy tradition of their forebears like Helmet and Unsane, HAAN will hit you in the gut and leave you lying breathless in the street. Their particular fusion of post punk/hardcore and hard rock is muscular and undulating, not leaving anything to the imagination as they strip all of the filth and stress and rage off of daily life and hold it up in front of your face. This is exactly what the band accomplishes on their new offering By the Grace of Blood and Guts, out 8/10/18 on Aqualamb Records. Continue Reading

Death Engine crank out a half-hour of pure abrasiveness on their sophomore full-length, Place Noire.
From the caustic post-hardcore of 2013’s Amen EP, to the cacophonous and angular chaos of 2015’s Mud, Lorient’s Death Engine have been on a steady path to noisy glory since their inception. As such, it comes as no surprise that Place Noire sees the band embracing their noise rock elements more than ever before. This results in six tense, gritty tracks full of hypnotic rhythms, atonal guitars, and swirling murks of feedback and noise. The band’s sound may have changed yet again, but their visceral heaviness remains. 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.

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
