Full Of Hell are a band consistently in-between. They’ve gone from playing the mainstream hardcore circuit at the legendary This Is Hardcore Fest to sharing the collaborative stage with renown Japanese noise artist Merzbow to supporting the stoner doom Weedeater and most recently, doing the same for black metal titans 1349. Throughout this touring turbulence, the band have cultivated a consistent yet ever evolving brand of self-described “harsh grinding death”, a strange melting pot of death metal, grindcore, hardcore, harsh noise, power electronics, sludge and beyond. The band’s latest venture pits them in a collaborative entanglement entitled One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache with their similarly minded, prolific Portland, Oregon based allies in the body. I recently had the opportunity to interview vocalist Dylan Walker about his musical background, Full Of Hell’s growth, the band’s upcoming collaboration with the body, fried chicken establishments, memes and more. Additionally, I was able to ask about the writing, origin and lyrics of select songs spanning the entirety of Full Of Hell’s catalog. Check it out below. One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache arrives digitally and on CD March 25th via Neurot Recordings and will be self-released on vinyl shortly after. Continue Reading
If there’s anything at all to be said about the California hardcore scene, it’s that it’s prolific. Thanks to the hard work and creativity therein, there’s a sea of great shows to go to almost every week and there’s a palette range of styles and solid bands for almost every taste in hardcore. Specific to the LA/OC based individuals responsible and affiliated with The Pit Studios and SOS Booking, there are bands that range from the fairly straightforwards (Rotting Out, Fury and Discrepancy) to the metal-infused (Nails, Xibalba, Take Offense, Soul Search, Downpresser) to the straight up weird (Twitching Tongues). As of recent, there’s the Troycore revival that Van Nuys’s God’s Hate brings. Conceived of by Twitching Tongues vocalist Colin Young, God’s Hate revives (with the touches of modern hardcore) the Troy, New York hardcore style championed by groups such as Dying Breed, Section 8 and Stigmata in all its part-death metal, part-Pantera/Exhorder, part-NYHC, part-somethingfromeverywhere glory. With the 90s sXe vegan sound and “beatdown” surging to popularity, it’s honestly a real pleasure to see the Troy style brought into the contemporary. I was recently able to interview Colin on God’s Hate‘s debut album, Mass Murder, the band’s formation, Twitching Tongues, Mortiis, Wrestlemania, Dr. Pepper and more. Check it out below.
