Energumeno/Hades Mining Co. – Freshly Dead (7″ 2017)
Side A: Energumeno – Rememorando Mierdas Del Pasado.
Energumeno is a band where two of my oldest friends in the wonderful world of noise play, Javi and Manolo are the guys who run R.O.N.F. Records which was the first label to release Kusari Gama Kill many years ago. Still if they weren’t my friends, I’d love their side of the split. Tight noisy noisecore as I like it!
Side B: Hades Mining Co. – Mass Dysentery Insurgency / Anarchy In Your Anal Hole + Sting Like A Butterfly, Fly Like A Bee.
HMC plays a more sloppy noisecore than Energumeno, but not less enjoyable. Loads of references here (or so I think) to all sorts of music. Style wise we’re more in Seven Minutes of Nausea-country. Good fun!
All in all a great 7″ that’s worth buying.
This is a record I have been having dirty thoughts about since I heard of it. Unfortunately it was sold only on the Sete Star Sept 2014 North American tour, (comes with tour poster), and I am kinda living in Denmark, with no funds for going to a noisecore show on another continent.
Luckily my good friend Josh of Limbs Bin had the privilege of being the opening act for Sete Star Sept and Lotus Fucker in NYC, and he was kind enough to purchase this marvelous split for me. And slap my ass and call me Charlie if obtaining this isn’t well worth the trouble. Both bands deliver top work. An interesting detail is that 7S7 emulate Lotus Fucker’s hardcore, and Lotus Fucker in turn emulate the trademark 7S7 noisegrind. Also they have swapped artwork style.
I’m too stoked to write more, I’ll have yet another listen instead.
I couldn’t find a vid from this particular split, and I have chosen to link to a Lotus Fucker video instead, as I love the band a lot, and want to share the joy. And let’s face it, everybody knows how Sete Star Sept sounds…
