COSMIC HARDCORE/GRINDCORE/NOISE HAPPENINGS IN LEEDS:
‘BATALJ is an experimental noise/trash/whatever-outfit based in Berlin.
With distorted analog synthesizers accompanied by frantic drum assaults, effect-drenched guitar arrangements and shrieking vocals the trio concocts a barely comprehensible soundscape of deformed rhythms, blasts, bleeps, controlled chaos and diverse musical damaged goods hailing from hc/punk as well as experimental noise.’
‘They improvise and jam and scare and enthrall and hypnotise and harm and stab and hack and bash and crash and crunch and stick things in your eyes and hit you with planks of wood and mash you into a stinking horrible mush.
Circuit bending harsh noises, power tools, furbies and weird pedals atop bass drenched, doom hatred, dual vocals, one (or sometimes more) drummers.’
‘Scraped up by a shovel and tossed onto the expanding pile of Noise. Cattle live on the top of said pile.’ Trio of maniacs perpetuating an orchestra of groovy noise, jagged and fat with more rhythm than a sack of drumsticks.
‘Festering grind from Leeds. A mixture of arrogant slow-paced trundles with uber fast power-violence. For fans of Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Rorschach. Like if a grindcore band were signed to AmRep.’
The Locust/Daughters style mathy madness with blood-curdling vocals, savagely dissonant guitar fuckery, and fidgety explosive drumming, noize galore. Self-described as ‘Hardcore-Noisecore-What-ever-you-want-core’
Jagged angular post-punk/pronk/jazzcore, haunted by the ghost of outsider music. Paranoid cavernous vocals, searingly sarcastic riffs, tied together by the tightest rhythm section in town; think Nomeansno/Gospel/Fugazi. Plus their frontman used to be a stripper.
