"Shaman tears.
Short fragments from the songs of inner feeling.
A few grains of the infinite sound which I hear inside,
but cannot show in perfection this real vibration.
13 minutes - that were allowed to be recorded"

bandcamp

A blackened crust compilation presented by the Scholomance Webzine. Features a lot of bands that I haven't heard of before, and most of which probably are apolitical, but there are some big RABM names as well. Supported by the members of Kerberos and Sordide. By the way, Sordide have released a new album not long ago, check it out too!

"The American motto is quite pushed around. From the In Crust We Trust created by the Obsence Extreme Fest, it mutated in In Grind We Crust ; since Crust also participated in the birth of Black Metal, we choose to present to you a compilation called In Black We Crust, which links Black Metal and its origins. The great Maxime Taccardi gracefully illustrated this compilation.

Don't only expect old-school Black Metal mixed with Crust. Crust gave birth to many other genres, and recently got more intellectual, in order to create a more and more powerful reflect of reality. Just like paintings of a chaotic world, those moments of primitive violence and melancholic reflections are here rendered in a mix of dirty Black Metal, and of Grind, Hardcore, Sludge, Doom, or even Drone and Post-Rock, a mix which always stays profoundly rooted in Crust sounds coming from all corners of the world"

"Mustasuo was formed in Oulu, Finland in 2015 and plays a mixture of crust, grindcore, black metal and sludge.

S.A.S (SatAnarchist Apparition Storm)


Well, S.A.S are a Raw Anarchist Black Metal band from Florida. They have been part of the V/A "Resistance: Anti-NSBM compilation vol.2 made by the crew of The Dark Skies Above Us. 
I have received their music, available only on Youtube which i'm attaching here, hoping you can give them a listen. I'm also quoting part of the message for you to know more about the band...

"In short this project was to release some anger I had towards the police in the state of Florida after having my rights trampled upon. The lyrical themes have to do with the Greek gods together with the souls of fallen Pagan warriors, witches and revolutionaries of old rising together in a spiritual conquest through raging thunderstorms, hurricanes, and tornadoes, riots and the evocation of my own personal soul energy to target the POLICE, destroying them completely through obliteration and tearing their uniforms into shreds!!! A TOTAL downfall of fascism worldwide and a big fat FUCK YOU to both neo nazis and cops!"

Trench foot - "Trench foot" (2016)



TRENCH FOOT "Trench foot"

Year: 2016
Genre: Drone/Noise
Country: Spain

Track List:
  1. Mito del Estado 
  2. Ensayo sobre la ubicuidad
  3. Sonata para Artaud
  4. Del mutismo y sus formas
  5. Díselo con flores

'Trench foot' is a drone/noise band from Salamanca, Spain. This is an experimental projects that from an anarchist perspective wants to talk about the modern bourgeois State based on three important pillars that sustain it: the importance of state institutions, the ethics of health and welfare, and the monopoly of violence. I'm going to translate what was send to me because I find this important to comprehend:

"The first song includes a text file (I think you can read from Bandcamp), in which I propose that the creation of the State arises as a way to maintain control over the population once the theological substrate falls, being necessary to resort to something so ineffable and transcendent as laws. Given this, I propose to go to the myth of Hercules to decapitate the absolute power of the bourgeois state.
In the second (actually third) I sample some verses of Artaud, the poet of the disease, where the disease is claimed as a way of life. I think the hygienist tendency, which lasts to our days, does not seek health as an end in itself, but sees it as a pretext for greater productive force: a greater health, greater efficiency at work. The best oil to the machinery of capital are healthy people.
And the last song is based in the Weberian thesis that the state is the monopoly of legitimate violence, to claim all violence against the State itself. Hence the name, as it is based on Mateo Morral, a Spanish anarchist who tried to undermine Alfonso XIII in his mouth throwing a bomb with a bouquet of flowers."
