...Not only do they sound like a raging beast wired on the up-tempo bits 'n' pieces of Unsane's discography, but in the case of much of the new material, KEN mode evoke the brutality of Unsane's Total Destruction and Unsane album covers brought to musical life." - Decibel Magazine
INTER ARMA (Relapse Records)
"Further blurring the lines between what constitutes pure Norwegian black metal, Scandinavian blackened death metal and their influences Stateside, Richmond, VA's Inter Arma unveil one intense demon of an album with Sundown. Confusing listeners via a ballad-y piano introduction, the record instantly veers off into explosive territory with lead track "All Time Low," a seven-plus-minute exercise in metallic diversity. Initially raging with eerie, reverberating riffs and tormented screams, the song eventually winds its way through lumbering, half-time bursts until settling on an almost stoner rock inertia. Confusing as this may sound, the way in which Inter Arma go about shifting between these styles is smooth enough to come across as natural, but has just the right amount of grind to grab attention, making Sundown contrasting and interesting, but not chaotic or off-putting." - Exclaim.ca
SCIENTIST (members of Yakuza)
Scientist is an experimental metal /noise/sludge/punk metal act from Chicago Illinois formed in 2011. Scientist exists from the "ashes" of such groups as profound lore artist YAKUZA,(still active), FIREISBORN and RAISED ON ZENITH featuring Eric Plonka (guitar/vox(, Justin Cape (drums), and Patrick Auclair (bass) and also having just recorded with Sanford Parker (Buried At Sea, Nachtmystium, Corrections House) featuring guest appearances by Stavros Giannopoulos from Atlas Moth, Bruce Lamont from Yakuza, Jeff Lyman from Dead Sheriff and Sanford Parker
War Brides follow in a long line of Midwest post-hardcore, calling to mind the sounds of Slint and Shiner with echoes of 1000 Hurts era Shellac. Their music, however, is by no means dated, as they slot just as comfortably alongside contemporaries like noise rock’s Pissed Jeans and post-metal’s (and fellow Chicagoans) Pelican.
