New music from Finnish Noisepunx Slussenanalys, far more wheezy and drawn-out than anything I've posted from them previously.

A new live clip from Norwegian indie/Noiserockers Misty Range.
Livstid is the rare example of a band that is actually too raging, so much so that I can't make it through the album in one sitting. It's not just wall-to-wall Noise either -- there's still plenty of melody and such -- but they are absolutely relentless in their arena-crust/d-beat attack. When a track comes up on shuffle at the gym, I'm stoked (in fact, I just did a set of 30 pushups while pondering this write-up), but there's no way I'm gonna fit this into my regular listening repertoire. So consider this a hesitant recommendation -- you'll know pretty quickly whether or not you need Livstid in your life from one short sample track.

Last year I was all about ugly, apocalyptic hardcore, this year I find that a large proportion of my listening is geared towards getting (back) into industrial/synth/EBM. One group that I've been listening to lots is The Pain Machinery and while I can't post a track from their latest album "Surveillance culture" because their label politely asked me not to, I will share a track off their 2010 release "Urban survival". "ParaNoise" lacks the relentless, hard-driving beats that define much of the band's sound, but it's statement of extreme military/technology paranoia is a recurring motif, a concept well-served by the noisy clatter of machines. They can be used to work for you, but they can also work against you -- it's a variation of the same dystopic vision, an ever-present theme in this particular genre and one that comes closer to reality every day. As "Surveillance culture"'s opening track "Shine" states, "We are social media / television / you carry out what we command" -- there are dark forces at work against you, if you let them.
