Unsigned and Unholy: Anion, Bloodpig, Hell is Other People
If you’re like me, you simply cannot get enough elephants marching riffs in your life. Ladies and germs, Vancouver’s Anion has the cure for what ails you. This quartet masterfully blends sludge with hardcore to create groove-leaden tunes that sound positively obese. The result is somewhat reminiscent of Nights Like These, but that’s really not really doing Anion justice. Maybe it’s best to leave it at this: fans of Crowbar and Coalesce alike will enjoy Anion.
If you’re like me, you simply cannot get enough mathy, chaotic hardcore in the vein of bands like Botch, Norma Jean, and Meek is Murder. Ladies and germs, Stockton, CA’s Bloodpig has the cure for what ails you. Their most recent release is called Horrible Music by Worse People, which really tells you where this band is coming from. If you’re generally a happy person who’s in a good mood all the time and things everything is gonna be okay, Bloodpig is not for you. For the rest of us, though…
If you’re like me, you simply cannot get enough musical reminders that life is bleak, bleak, bleak. Ladies and germs, Windsor’s Hell is Other People has the cure for what ails you. Part Celeste, part Buried Inside, and all dark skies with no sun, Hell is Other People make blackened hardcore with a surprisingly emotional bent. You probably won’t laugh, but you may very well cry and hurl.
