Halloween is upon us; that glorious time of year in which low-budget horror films are viewed, copious amounts of horrid candy are consumed, and “edgy” kids decorate their rooms with goofy macabre decorations raided from Spirit Halloween stores across the nation. In preparation for this beloved holiday, we at Svbterranean have something special for you weirdos.
Presenting Razor Blades & Chocolate: a new digital compilation with a cheesy name that compiles noise, drone, darkwave, industrial, experimental and generally spooky-sounding acts. This 90 plus-minute mixtape is the perfect soundtrack to your own grisly murder or psychotic breakdown. Check out the compilation after the break via Bandcamp.
As usual, if you enjoy any of the artists featured on this compilation, please support them in any way you can.
NYC’s White Suns continue to subvert genre conventions and deconstruct and subsequently reinvent themselves on their newest recording, Psychic Drift.
The noise duo’s previous two releases, Sinews (2012) and Totem (2014), were praised for their unrelenting abrasiveness and unorthodox compositions. Walls of harsh noise collide head-on with pummeling, erratic drumming and malformed, shrieking guitar riffs, creating a uncomfortable atmosphere designed to weed out the weak. Each release shows the band becoming more and more intense, while gradually moving in different sonic directions.
New York noise act White Suns have premiered their forthcoming new album, Psychic Drift, via Clrvynt. The album will officially be released this Friday, June 16, via The Flenser and can be purchased here. Psychic Drift is White Suns doing what they do best – creating suffocating walls of atmospheric noise that are completely unnerving at times. Check out the album after the break.

NYC noise duo White Suns have announced the release of their fourth full-length album. The forthcoming follow-up to 2014’s Totem will be titled Psychic Drift and will be released on June 16 via The Flenser. In contrast to previous recordings, Psychic Drift will be comprised of four long-form compositions crafted from synthesizers, industrial rhythms, field recordings and will be entirely void of guitars. The album’s artwork and track listing can be found below.
The first single from the record, “A Year Without Summer”, can be streamed after the break courtesy of Tiny Mixtapes.
