New York noise metallers Gnaw return with the third chapter in their terrifying discography, Cutting Pieces.
Unifying former and current members of Khanate, Enos Slaughters, Insect Ark and other acts across the underground music spectrum, Gnaw deliver a twisted and outre sound that is anything but easy listening. Its twisted amalgam of noise, industrial and a myriad of other strange musical stylings gnaws into the listener’s psyche, as the band’s name suggests. It’s not easily digestible, but it is highly rewarding for extreme music fans with mashochistic tendencies. Continue Reading
Current Kayo Dot guitarist and former guitarist/vocalist for So is the Tongue, Ron Varod, creates sprawling and haunting compositions for his solo endeavor, Zvi. The Brooklyn musician’s first foray into this dark, guitar-centered realm was the project’s self-titled debut, which was released back in 2014. The album featured eight, dense tracks that were sonically arresting and defied categorization. Varod’s skill as a songwriter and his unique utilization of his six-string instrument made Zvi‘s very basic setup multifaceted and enthralling. Despite being involved in a multitude of acts, Varod returned earlier this year with the faithful follow-up to that imaginative first full-length. Zvi II: Death Stops Us All shows the project becoming more massive, dismal and experimental. With only three tracks, this record plummets listeners into a cold aural abyss of which there is no escape.
