Zef Stylez

I'm sure most of ya have heard of Die Antwoord, and if not check out their artful brand of insanity. Truly a guilty pleasure, but I must admit that Yo-Landi is one hot little number.

To Drum with the Air

Let it be known I enjoy air drumming. Oh sure I've played on a kit before, but you just don't get the same thrill as flailing your arms into the vast wide open, doing those pantomime double strokes tom tom rolls 280 bpm blasts and mach 5 double beaters. Plus your neighbors don't hate you nearly as much (sure they still hate you but at least not because of a fucking loud snare drum). So, here are my fav songs to rock out to...

....and of course, the motherlode

Sveta Istina Vjestica - Witches In The Air

Suck on this one...French avant black/grind dealing with such hard-hitting issues as "witches, death and madness"... free download baby so don't mess around.

Reencarnacion - Egipto

Another strange, strange release by these Columbian shamans. Reencarnacion's debut 888Metal was black/thrash as filtered through European RIO, Egipto does away with nearly all of the metal influence, instead we are put on a spirtiual avant-garde journey that is more Basho than Bathory. Maybe comparisons can be made to the controversial MH album Slagry, but that shit was structured, Reencarnacion are improvising and riffing all over the place. This has to be improvised, if they actually structured these tunes they should be locked up for crimes against humanity (or given some kind of genius grant, I really can't decide)....Much like the cover image, Egipto is completely fucked and unexpected stuff!

Ornaments of Agony - Zowlongiyn Ugalz

Mongolian funeral doomed...incompetently played with intriguing aesthetic choices. Yes, this isn't just mongoloid but actually Mongolian, authentic. Found out about this one-man droning mess from the Obscuro! blog, which is awesome. Download that guys podcasts, they are worth their weight in gold...he even cites me as a resource for incredibly strange metal which is high praise!!

Illogo - When Liquids Stay Dry

This just might be the creepiest cover art ever. Hard to describe band, but the music fits the artwork so you can judge this book by it's cover...Erik Thomas of Teeth of the Divine zine describes these Italians as "Yakuza meets Circle Takes the Square meets DHG meets Isis meets Japanese Torture Comedy Hour meets Jean Michele Jarre". I only like half those things, and I pretty much only like half of this, but its is scritchin' that itch for the bizarre pretty good at this moment.
