One with love for all you satanic wrong-doers in make-up. KICKASS HEAVY META-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-L for the little Japanese schoolgirl in each and every one of us that just wants to scream "KYAAAAAAAaaaaa!!!"

"Apparently the Sex Machineguns named their band after the Sex Pistols, implying that machineguns are more radical and faster than pistols."

... Excellent.

Trick or HEAVY FUCKING METAL. (Mediafire)

Tonight I will celebrate with a pikachu hat on my head. That's how awesome I am, really. And sometimes, I hang a Hello Kitty keychain on my guitar for a relentless grind jam. It's just so... empowering.

Cellgraft (USA) - Revenge (2009)


Tracklist:
1. Rotting In Defecation
2. Anal Abscess
3. Revenge
4. Intestinal Collapse
Total playing time 01:54

Apparently, those Cellgraft guys put up more free stuff. However, this is their "very old material, worth a listen if you like Carcass, Repulsion, or any old school death metal influenced grindcore." Yup, definitely worth a listen, no matter how short it might be (under 2min, actually). After looking at the songtitles, I humbly decided that the lyrics don't interest me too much on this one.

Same sound, all good. (Mediafire)

10. Ralos
Total playing time 32:47

I got an email featuring Bad Actor's LP as my - get this - "reward for supporting heavy metal." Am I missing something?

They're a five-piece from Orlando, FL. They enjoy krakens, leviathans in general, and long walks on the beach. Oh and Mastodon. There's really not too much of the old slåådge here. Instead, the Bad Actors amalgamate several styles into a consistent mold of metals. Thing looks kinda weird, yet refuses to fall apart, its seams mended each and every time by melodic Baroness-reminiscent jerk-offs. And I mean that in a nice way. + For once, there are lyrics on their myspace, too. Mastodon and Baroness fans definitely ought do check it out, I say.

I met an Oleg recently. (Mediafire)

By the way, how many bands are there in Florida?

Get this gulf coast name-dropping trio. Hey, I guess it's like Tampa's Insect Warfare, with an Assücking edge, which means that it's a sharpened, or, uh - to put it realistically - blunted version. Punk rock, man. This one's a tape, only 300 copies I believe, but the guys put it up for free in any case. Didn't even hit me up with an email, which means that I found a free release all on my own for once. Though, you're free to go ahead and hit them up for one of them tapes.

No lyrics with the download, though. Good stuff anyway.

Still on fire, baby. (Mediafire)

P.S. For those who sent me mails in the last few months: in case you're wondering (or have already given up on me - I scratch my balls in your honor), I will, indeed, post those submitted things in my inbox.

John Coltrane (USA) - Ascension (1965)


As a listening mind, you'd think God was dead and Coltrane is - at best - also dead thus ascending in a flurry of failed resurrections, maugre all those silent angelic balls of light in badly rendered Hollywood shitstorms. You'd think that he finally found his cartridges empty in some muddy pit following the stench of a drunkard - God or not, by then it was all the same - so I chose to follow his (foot/blue)prints in a way deemed societally wrong. And I have found an unchristian god with no capitals teeming with emptiness in everything which is why I'm a sidewinding idiot all the time. I'd have eaten static right off the screen had I heard comprehensive music, some familiar love song, cheap and loveless, but you can't hear shit in the middle of the woods. And later, you can't see shit. He found that he was biologically predetermined not to hear or see. Not destined, predetermined. He was not destined to do anything, so he was destined to do everything in contra-predetermined cathartic postdetermination for a non-annihilationist destiny where the day was still beautiful as described by Andrew Hill, who had no doubt seen an ascension or ascended himself. What he's trying to say is: realize what you know before it's too late.

Tracklist:
1. Ascension (Edition II) 40:58
2. Ascension (Edition I) 38:30
Total playing time 1:19:28

Personnel:
John Coltrane - tenor saxophone
Pharoah Sanders - tenor saxophone

Art Davis - upright bass

I'm as witty as an asscension. (link none)

Most people went ahead and compared it to Ornette Coleman's Free Jazz, but if we all followed each other then we'd just end up running in circles. Here's a map - directions on how to ascend - that someone awesome put on wikipedia:
