Darren Cesca's Pillory Release Video For Imbeciles In Defiance
Friday, 12 December 2014 22:39

Extreme drummer Darren Cesca and Pillory, today unleash their brand new video for "Imbeciles In Defiance." The tune comes by way of their punishing Evolutionary Miscarriage full-length, released earlier this year via Unique Leader Records.

Written, recorded and produced by founding drummer Darren Cesca (Arsis, Burn In Silence, Goratory) at his newly-launched House of Grind Studios in Connecticut during 2013, Pillory's Evolutionary Miscarriage is centered thematically around the de-evolution of mankind. A physically and mentally consuming sound excursion, Evolutionary Miscarriage brandishes deranged rhythms, maniacal riff onslaughts, subtle white noise nuances and multi-layered vocals all executed together with near surgical meticulousness, the record's sharp production allowing each lacerating note to shine while retaining the blunt brutality of its predecessor, No Life Guard At The Gene Pool.

Accurately describes Metal Forces, "Album number two offers eleven quizzical cuts that refuse to rest on any laurels, but instead one moment race with a frenzy only to pulverize with perplexing dryness and inaccessible pattern shifts. It belongs in the same algae-ridden corner of space once carved out by the likes of Pestilence, then Cynic, and onto Gorguts, Necrophagist, Origin etc., but it's only real similarity to these heavyweights is its ability to bewilder and jolt the bones so that they crumble under the sheer force of the unpredictable twists and turns."

Evolutionary Miscarriage is out now via Unique Leader Records:

Kyle Christman - Gorgasm - Visceral Discharge - Studio Play-Through
Monday, 08 December 2014 17:37

Here is a look inside the studio with Gorgasm's Kyle Christman, tracking 'Visceral Discharge,' from the most recent record "Destined To Violate." This is the fourth full-length from the band, and was released on New Standard Elite Records. The album was recorded and mixed at Belle City Sound (formerly Studio One) in Racine, WI. Drums used are Pearl Masters MCX. All Saluda cymbals, aside from one Zildjian Z Custom Mega Bell ride cymbal. Drum pedals are Axis longboard A21 custom, with deep rockers and heavy duty springs. Kyle is currently endorsed by Axis Percussion and Saluda Cymbals.

When we asked Kyle about the entire recording process, his response was simple: "We decided to do absolutely no sampling, quantizing, or editing of the drums on this album. All one-take play-throughs, and no click tracks... to keep the natural live feel and sound."

People can keep up with the band on the Gorgasm (official) FB page, and the New Standard Elite Records page. Check out their Merch at Big Cartel:
