Seen and Heard: No Clean Singing on Bangladeafy’s “Narcopaloma”

“The first advance track, “Termites”, is an amazing song — brain-twisting but melodic, instrumentally jaw-dropping but spell-binding. Riding the compelling drum and bass rhythms is like flying through a roller-coaster ride with your arms in the air, and the words that come to mind in listening to the arpeggios (I’m not always sure what instruments I’m hearing) are “intricate”, “bright”, “sparkling”, and “scintillating”.” – No Clean Singing

BANGLADEAFY: First Single From Narcopaloma EP Issued Through “Termites” Premiere At Metal Injection – Earsplit Compound

New York City-based technical metal duo, BANGLADEAFY, has just issued the first single from their impending Narcopaloma EP, with a premiere of the churning “Termites,” delivered exclusively through Metal Injection.

Narcopaloma crams seven new tunes into a white-knuckled fifteen-minute ride through Weirdo City, delivering BANGLADEAFY’s manic, tech-mangled, bass and drum-driven attack with even more brain-warping arrangements than before. Progressive fusion meets cyber annihilation in brutalizing grooves that take the listener by the throat and drag one through a psychotic 8-bit video game holocaust.

The first single from Narcopaloma comes writhing forth through an exclusive debut at Metal Injection, the write-up stating of the track, “’Termites’ bends and twists endlessly though cluttered hallways of riffs and insane passages that just might make you pause the track to get off your ass and practice. Seriously, this sounds like four dudes trying to keep up with one another… not two dudes crushing it. Observe!”

Choke on BANGLADEAFY’s “Termites” RIGHT HERE.

Narcopaloma will see release on CD and digital formats through the band’s cohorts at Nefarious Industries on August 26th; preorders will be made available in the coming days.

BANGLADEAFY has booked a Brooklyn record release show on August 25th, with many other live announcements to be expected.

BANGLADEAFY CD Release Show:
8/25/2016 Sunnyvale – Brooklyn, NY w/ Husbandry, Spotlights, Geometers

The origin of the BANGLADEAFY moniker fuses the Bangladeshi descent of drummer Atif Haq with the physical hearing impairment of bassist/pianist/vocalist Jon Ehlers, as he along with two sisters were been born with sensorineural hearing loss. The duo interlopes endless runs and rhythms with intense time changes and otherworldly texture with utter seamlessness. Closing a three-year gap since The Briefcase EP left jaws swinging, the duo slams back onto the grid withNarcopaloma. The record is drenched in the synth elements that have permeated the outfit’s prior works, including segues bridging each track, and while BANGLADEAFY songs are largely instrumental already, Narcopaloma is virtually void of any vocals. Narcopaloma was engineered and mixed by Jonathan Vergara at Pancake Studios, with Atif Haq’s drums having been recorded by Mike Gatto, and all bass, samplers, and keys tracked by the band’s Jon Ehlers.

BANGLADEAFY is also already currently immersed in the writing process for their next release. Steady updates are to be expected throughout the year.

MINE COLLAPSE: Self-Titled Debut Playing At Heavy Blog Is Heavy; EP Out Friday Through Nefarious Industries – Earsplit Compound

Mine Collapse

The debut from Chicago-based MINE COLLAPSE will see release in the form of the trio’s self-titled EP via Nefarious Industries this week. Recorded with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Lord Mantis, Harm’s Way) at Bricktop Recording, and mastered by Carl Saff (Coliseum, Sofy Major, Young Widows), the explosive first title from MINE COLLAPSE picks up where arbogast, the former act of two members, left off, fusing cranked-up noise crunch, angular-yet-melodic punk hooks, and terminal rhythmic bombast into a rampaging and engaging concoction.

Heavy Blog Is Heavy is streaming Mine Collapse early, raving, “This EP is ridiculously awesome. It’s like a combo of hardcore with some post(-) stuff thrown in. The vocals are like classic hardcore style a la Modern Life Is War but the music is very rich with detail and has some great depth to it. This Chicago act has impressed me thoroughly with such a strong release…”

Hear the debut from MINE COLLAPSE early at Heavy Blog Is Heavy RIGHT HERE.

The self-titled debut from MINE COLLAPSE delves into a uniquely heavy, jagged, sludge-punk sound. Clocking in at twenty-two minutes, the four-song EP shows layers of frantic noise rock and doom riffage stacked atop its jazz-infused pummeling drum style. Influences range from contemporary heavy bands — think Torche, Queens Of The Stone Age, Don Caballero, Boris, and The Austerity Program — to old-school nineties AmRep bands à la Helmet, Jesus Lizard, and Unsane. Throughout Mine Collapse, a running lyrical theme attempts to, in the words of the band, “address the frustrations in the face of a corporatized culture and the inevitable surrender to it.”

Mine Collapse sees release this Friday, July 22nd, on CD and through all prime digital retailers; preorders are available through Nefarious Inudustries HERE and through the band HERE.

MINE COLLAPSE’s release show for the EP sees the band supporting Child Bite and SNAFU on July 30th. Additional tour dates following the release of the record will be announced shortly.

MINE COLLAPSE Issues “Zeroed” Single Through PureGrainAudio; Self-Titled Debut EP Out Next Week ViaNefarious Industries – Earsplit Compound

Mine Collapse

In just over a week, Nefarious Industries will unveil the self-titled debut EP by Chicago-based MINE COLLAPSE – a new act founded by two-thirds of now defunct punk/metal ensemble arbogast – and PureGrainAudio now aids in the delivery of a new track from the record, streaming the song, “Zeroed.”

Throughout the Mine Collapse EP, a running lyrical theme attempts to, in the words of the band, “address the frustrations in the face of a corporatized culture and the inevitable surrender to it.” This is present in the “Zeroed” single, for which the band offers, “’Zeroed’ similarly echoes the lyrical theme of modern misanthropy, calling out insatiable consumerism and shameless entitlement among the upper crust. ‘Last in line is first to fail/ Choking down the bitter pill / After everything’s consumed / Empty life goes unfulfilled’.”

Enter the PureGrainAudio portal to check out MINE COLLAPSE’s “Zeroed” RIGHT HERE.

Also hear the EP’s track “Mouthpiece” at New Noise Magazine HERE.

Nefarious Industries will release Mine Collapse on CD and digital on July 22nd; preorders are available HERE and HERE.

MINE COLLAPSE’s release show for the EP sees the band supporting Child Bite and Snafu on July 30th. Additional tour dates following the release of the record will be announced shortly.

MINE COLLAPSE Live:
7/30/2016 Burlington – Chicago, IL *EP Release Show w/ Child Bite, Snafu, Den

Formed in the Fall of 2015, MINE COLLAPSE picks things up where arbogast left off, with Aaron Roemig and Mike Rataj continuing a nearly decade-long collaborating streak. Roemig and Rataj hurl a ten-ton mass of experience onto the Chicago music scene with their newest endeavor—having served time in other Chicago notables Lord (Asian Man Records), Modern Advances (Baldy Longhair Records), Retro Morning, and Still Machine. Rounding out the sound on the EP and live is Ed Sanchez-Gomez, the mastermind behind the Latinoamericano Shoegaze project, Umbra Sum. Recorded with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Lord Mantis, Harm’s Way) at Bricktop Recording, and mastered by Carl Saff (Coliseum, Sofy Major, Young Widows), the self-titled debut from MINE COLLAPSE delves into a uniquely heavy, jagged, sludge-punk sound.

Beware of Heavy Falling Objects! MINE COLLAPSE Unveil Stream of “Zeroed” Single [Exclusive Premiere] – PureGrainAudio

Mine Collapse Promo Photo

Chicago, IL’s Mine Collapse are bound to cause a cave in or two with their raucous blend of punk, sludge and noise rock. Take for instance their song “Zeroed” (being heard for the first time right here) from the band’s pending July 22nd release via Nefarious Industries, Mine Collapse, it’s as chaotic as it is organized, as jarring as it is soothing.

The group recorded the twenty-two minute, four-track Mine Collapse EP (pre-order here) at Bricktop Recording with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Lord Mantis, Harm’s Way) while mastering came via Carl Saff (Coliseum, Sofy Major, Young Widows). Get to know the group and, if you’re in the area, check out their Chicago record release show on July 30th, they’ll be supporting Child Bite and Snafu.

Said the band about the song: “The second track, ‘Zeroed’, similarly echoes the lyrical theme of modern misanthropy, calling out insatiable consumerism and shameless entitlement among the upper crust. ‘Last in line is first to fail/ Choking down the bitter pill/ After everything’s consumed/ Empty life goes unfulfilled.'”

Show Dates:

07/09 – Underground Lounge – Chicago, IL w/ Fashion Week, Propane Propane, Scum Lord

BANGLADEAFY: Technical Bass/Drums NYC Duo To Issue Narcopaloma Through Nefarious Industries In August – Earsplit Compound

[photo by Nick Spadafora]
[photo by Nick Spadafora]

Closing a three-year gap since their bewildering The Briefcase EP left jaws swinging, NYC-based BANGLADEAFY returns with their ripping new set of tunes encapsulated on Narcopaloma.

The origin of the BANGLADEAFY moniker fuses the Bangladeshi heritage of drummer Atif Haq with the physical hearing impairment of bassist/pianist/vocalist Jon Ehlers — the multi-instrumentalist and his two sisters having been born with sensorineural hearing loss, rendering him virtually deaf his entire life. Yet this thought would never cross your mind, as the duo interlopes endless runs and rhythms with intense time changes and otherworldly texture with utter seamlessness.

Delivering BANGLADEAFY’s manic, tech-mangled, bass and drum-driven delivery comes writhing forth with even more deft precision and brain-warping arrangements than ever on the seven new tracks the Narcopaloma EP bears. Progressive fusion meets cyber annihilation in brutalizing grooves that take the listener by the throat and drag one through a psychotic 8-bit video game holocaust. The synth elements that have steadily permeated the outfit’s works more with each release, Narcopaloma is drenched in random doses of keys, including segueing each track with washes of ambiance, adding even more waves of perplexing awesomeness to the record. And while the BANGLADEAFY output is heavily instrumental by nature, Narcopaloma is virtually void of any vocal utterances.

With Atif Haq’s drums being recorded by Mike Gatto, and all bass, samplers, and keys tracked by Jon Ehlers, Narcopaloma was engineered and mixed by Jonathan Vergara at Pancake Studios, and completed with photography by Brian Bonelli and art design by Kaptain Carbon. The EP is being finalized for release on CD and digital formats through the band’s cohorts at Nefarious Industries on August 26th; preorders, audio samples, and much more on the EP will be released over the next several weeks.

BANGLADEAFY has booked a Brooklyn record release show on August 25th, with many other live announcements to be expected throughout the year.

In May, BANGLADEAFY supported The Dillinger Escape Plan; see their full set, including tracks from the new EP right HERE.

The band is also already currently immersed in the writing process for their next release, as the band furiously closes their time off the grid with an impending tsunami of new music and shows ahead.

Mine Collapse Promo Photo

The first single from Chicago trio, MINE COLLAPSE, has been premiered through an exclusive stream of the opening track to the band’s self-titled EP, as New Noise Magazine hosts “Mouthpiece.”

Recorded with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Lord Mantis, Harm’s Way) at Bricktop Recording, and mastered by Carl Saff (Coliseum, Sofy Major, Young Widows), the self-titled debut from MINE COLLAPSE delves into a uniquely heavy, jagged, sludge-punk sound featuring reverb-soaked vocals. Clocking in at twenty-two minutes, the four-song EP shows layers of frantic noise rock and doom riffage stacked atop its jazz-infused pummeling drum style. Influences range from contemporary heavy bands — think Torche, Queens Of The Stone Age, Don Caballero, Boris, and The Austerity Program — to old-school nineties AmRep bands à la Helmet, Jesus Lizard, and Unsane.

Issues the band on the EP’s lead song, “The dark lyrics of the opening track ‘Mouthpiece’ address the frustrations in the face of a corporatized culture and the inevitable surrender to it. — Fleeting false hope/ Dulling the point/ Left with no other choice/ Forced down/Until we choke.”

Stream MINE COLLAPSE’s “Mouthpiece” via New Noise RIGHT HERE.

Nefarious Industries will release Mine Collapse on CD and digital on July 22nd; preorders are available HERE and HERE.
