I continue checking out what I've received in my mail during the last few weeks, and here's an interesting release from an Edinburgh-based trio Godhole. It consists of two sides, each side featuring the same songs, but they sound nothing alike each other. While the side A is blackened crust/PV, side B is much more experimental and noisy, and I think I liked the noise versions of these songs even more than the original ones.

"The EP is a concept created by front man, Jamie Christ. The song titles are a deconstructed verse which was one of the last things written by his younger brother before he took his own life. Each song title is then taken as an idea to create lyrics about his brothers death, some from his own and some from his brothers perspective..."
