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.
They have released the above mentioned three records so far, and they are all of very high standard. As you can see the records have very similar layout, and the records’ sides are continuously numbered 1-6 as you can see on the photo below.
I’ll stand back, and let the music speak for itself…
Well well well… Some sick shite going on here. Kazumoto Endo delivers a harshish noise track, and does a very good job of it. Penis Geyser is a noisegrind band from Ohio, that has released some excellent split 7″s during the last 5 years.
I like both artists a lot, and was stoked at the news of them doing a split, I like splits with bands of different genres. I haven’t been able to track down a video featuring this particular release, so here are some other stuff from these madmen.
Delightfully brown vinyl too.
I was hugely disappointed when this lp came out. It put me off Agoraphobic Nosebleed for quite a while. But time mellows all feelings, and in recent months I have come to embrace the re-invented thrashy ANb.
The addition of Katherine Katz to the line-up, is a good thing. She sounds all sorts of pissed off, and easily matches the venom of Richard Johnson and James Randall. Scott Hull plays and programs like an evil genius.
I’d really like to go to Maryland Death Fest 2015 and see them live, but I fear my meager funds won’t get me there.
About Agoraphobic Nosebleed; I got into them quite late, I read about them in Albert Mudrian’s excellent book Choosing Death in 2004, and was intrigued by the notion of drum machine grind. Especially since I had plans of my own to make some machine-grind of my own.
The first ANb record I bought was Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope, then Honky Reduction, and then I began collecting their 7”s. Currently I have 26 Agoraphobic Nosebleed releases in my collection, but that includes multiples of their albums (cd/vinyl) and compilations.
