This is not an Ad Noiseam release, but that's no reason not to open your ears and listen to the new remix album by our good friends of Aucan. This Italian band debut, "Black Rainbow", was one of our favorite releases of 2010, and just got the remix treatment in this free follow-up, the modestly titled "Black Rainbow Remixes".
Featuring remixes by Ad Noiseam-partner in crimes Niveau Zero, Dälek and Scorn (check these tracks below), this remix album is now available for free on Aucan website here. You'll need to post something on Facebook, Twitter, or enter your email address, but this 2.0 nod is well worth it. In other words: click that link, download that remix album, and enjoy.
Now that Whourkr's new "4247 Snare Drums" (adn158) can be pre-ordered, we've added no less than 5 audio excerpts from this album to its info page right here. And still, we know how much people like to get their audio from web 2.0 pages. Therefore, while those of you who care have been able to check this track out for a few days, here's the "Gastro-Equestre" track again, this time from the cloud (Official.fm and Soundcloud):
Harder, faster, more guitars, more growls. Whourkr is Igorrr's metal alter-ego, and "4247 Snare Drums" is this act's third full length album. The product of a painstakingly long recording process by a musician who is already seen as one of the hardest-working perfectionist in the scene, it is also a towering culmination of extreme metal run through equations, growls laid down mathematically, and guitars calculated for maximum efficiency. Polymorphous, violent, absurd but also extremely detailled, here comes the deadliest, ugliest and most precise sow-metal you could imagine.
Oyaarss's recent "Bads" album (adn159) has been very well received, and a lot of reviews have pointed how intense a live set by this artist must sounds like. While Oyaarss's shows are at the moment (too) sparse, we come today with something which should answer this question, in the form of a recording of the concert that Oyaarss gave during the "Border Breakers" festival in Milan, Italy, on April 7th.
This show, which contains a lot of tracks from "Bads" as well as from Oyaarss's previous discography, can be listened to in full here or right below. Sit back, click play and enjoy.
