This collection of underground artists loosely categorized within black metal captures the filth, ambiance, and destructive elements of black metal, along with 4 traditional low-fi black metal songs. I hear similarities of Raspberry Bulbs (Chicago), and at other times Burzum (Oslo), but this musical ogre definitely feels unique with approach and style. Side A is mostly ambiance laden with noise and 2 black metal songs. Side B is the musical reverse, being mostly black metal but still experimental as hell. This could probably be used as a film soundtrack, but the combination could potentially be scarring. Nine ‘songs’ total, multiple artists have been used on this release to paint the evil atmosphere. the booklet is laid out like a zine, and the gothic / satanic media give respect to Olde European lifestyle, sacrifice, satanism (surprise surprise), and some intelligent lyrics about the decay of Detroit city. limited to 500 copies, this record comes with a bonus sticker and can be found via Thee High Priestess.

WAR//PLAGUE’s “Primal” 7″ is finally out! After a long delay at the pressing plant we finally have this fine slab of wax in our hands. This marks the kick off of the second half of the PE Limited Edition Singles Series (starting with record #7). If you ordered the subscription I’m pleased to announce that your copies will go out in the mail tomorrow. You can also order individual copies as well.
WAR//PLAGUE – Primal is potentially the best release these Minneapolis punks have yet to offer! The driving force behind this release is laden with mad as fuck thrash punk. These tracks are an all out assault on the shallow society we live in. This is “Primal”…war cries to decimate corporate sponsorship in the DIY punk underground, and to curse the thrones of those who rule. WAR//PLAGUE carry the torch for what really matters in this desolate world of superficial living and material gain. The scathing and metallic riffs, the onslaught of drums and the scorching vocals makes this a serious addition to their previous releases. This is a clear and concise release with a message to raise the flag high and to bestow nothing but rage against the masses that lie, cheat and kill.

This is Rachael Resist. I am the newest intern for Profane Existence. Ben Crew wanted to do a promo with my album that I just released in April. It’s not punk, but it’s one of the roots of punk and that is country music. I have been known to still do basement shows though….I have also played at the PE warehouse for Art-a-Whirl. If you like old roots country like Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, or Patsy Cline…you might like what I do. It’s still underground music and I am still as punk as I was in 1987.
So, if you order this, you get my album, Rachael and The Ranch Hand Resistance, and my favorite PE t-shirt….Defenders of the Faithless …always making punk a threat again!

the 2 songs on this flexi 7″ are crusty melodic punk rock from the Midwest. this 4 piece from Omaha use great drum rhythms with guitar melodies and gruff political vocals. the sound is a bit muddy but the bass doesnt get lost in the mix. for fans of melodic crust punk, this is a fully competent band. Released on World Trade Records, and Bezerker Records.

here is a hardcore split from Indiana recorded between 2010 and 2011. Rat Storm is a female fronted band that brings 4 songs on their side, one of which deals with rape and how serious the issue is. they rock the fastcore approach, with crisp production and enough breakdowns to keep it interesting, with clear explanations of the songs. Chaotic Neutral is a 5-piece that plays 4 songs of classic punchy Midwest hardcore. this is a good record to have if you like hardcore / fastcore. a joint release from Dead Rodent Records, Reality is a Cult Records, and Get Better Records.
