Ricarda Cometa

Premiere: RICARDA COMETA twist melody into strange shapes on “Panca y Piquín” – Treble

“Minimal but intense, showcasing a woozy instrumental style that showcases a heavy no wave influence as well as a more powerful indie sound that recalls the likes of Battles and Gnarwhal. The duo pulls and twists melody into odd shapes and urgent rhythms. It’s tense, strange, mangled and wiry music that hits hard but challenges conceptions of what rock music should be. If this is even rock music.” – Treble

Fuck Your Birthday - Afterlife

Premiere: FUCK YOUR BIRTHDAY “Afterlife” – Toilet ov Hell

““Afterlife” drips with an earnest sound that is as catchy as it is sneeringly in-your-face. It reminds me of when I used to stay up late in high school, recording college radio shows to cassette, and just hoping the DJ actually says what they’re playing. This is the type of song that I would have loved to find on Napster and force my friends to listen to. In the age of crystal clear production in million-dollar studios, Fuck Your Birthday is a welcome throwback to a time when bands just said “Fuck it. Let’s record an album and hit the road.”” – Toilet ov Hell

NEQUIENT: Wolves at the Door 8.0/10 review – Ghost Cult Magazine

“A sea change seems to be afoot in the heavy music game. Young bands like Code Orange, Knocked Loose and now NEQUIENT’s approach to the genre is to craft albums that pull from as wide a net of influences as possible and spinning that yarn into functional songs. On Wolves at the Door (Nefarious Industries) NEQUIENT uses d-beat-laden Crust Punk as a framework, and stacks on Thrash, Grindcore, Hardcore, Sludge and Black Metal to create a collage of brutality.” – Ghost Cult Magazine
