Richmond Avant Improv Collective

The latest release by RAIC is called “Multiplicity” and is real interesting. The band switches from free jazz to black metal to noise rock  to god knows what else. Yet each track is good on its own, the collective knows what they are doing.

RAIC is Samuel Goff, Abdul Hakim Bilal, Erik Schroeder, Zoe Olivia Kinney and Laura Marina. The goal by the collective, wich constantly features guest members, is to expand musically through improvs that don’t fit other ensembles.
The only rule that RAIC has is that one of the core members has to be performing in the ensemble.
Favorite track: Brugmansia, Leaves continue to Fall

Heavy Natural releases heavy punk noise

noisepunk duo Heavy Natural (with René Aquarius from Dead Neanderthals,Cryptae) released a self titled album. But watch out, the thing is so agressive that it comes alive, jumps out of your speakers and tries to eat your ears of. A casserole of wild punk, screeching black metal, a bit of noise and some 80’s pop makes up for one good sonic meal. Absolutely gorgeous.

Deep calleth upon Deep by Satyricon

Ever since  “Rebel Extravaganza” i have been hooked on Satyricon. They are one of the few bands that i still play from the period when i only listened to metal.
Their new album “Deep Calleth Upon Deep” is good, straightforward and strong. I will play this record a lot. all the songs are well made, there are no shit tracks. This is the Satyricon I like! Shame for the shitty artwork though.
