WAV Magazine reviews Petbrick live in Lisbon


They say:

Judging that Petbrickit is just and only an “Iggor Cavalera show” is a big mistake. The presence of the duo live makes their records in the studio look like kid games with cassettes, and frankly, on stage they decimate. The battery feels like a ton of free-falling bricks, and Wayne Adams' electronics fill the room so much that it resonates with the echo of the noise. Layers and layers and layers of waterfalls, textures, industrial buildings of noise pollution and dysfunction. “Radiation Facial” appears, with its shock waves carrying the familiar voice of Dylan Walker (Full of Hell) gargling dissonance in distress. "Horse" unloading the raw and the mechanic on Adams' hydraulics and Iggor's repetition. Brief visits to Ithey resonate like successive hammering in a bone that he wants to yield, but it is the recurring visits to the EP in his own name that deconstruct this whole plan of existence, as if his own life depended on it. The torn high-voltage cables incorporate a film such as Tetsuo, The Iron Man or Akira and come to life through muted and virtually disfigured mutants. Prolonged exposure to the overwhelming and unforgettable "Crack Baby", "Heaven's Gate" and "Trucker Fucker" can result in irreversible and catastrophic damage....

Listen to $hit and $hine remix of PETBRICK's Gringolicker Feat Warmduschers Mutado Pintado


Head over to The Quietus now to exclusively stream a killer $hit and $hine remix of the PETBRICK track Gringolicker that features Warmduschers Mutado Pintado on vocals.

Listen here: The Quietus

The remix is the b-side of the Gringolicker single that is being released this Friday (31 Jan) on all streaming sites: Presave stream

‘Gringolicker’ – the latest single to be taken from ‘I’ features the crazed vocal talents of Mutado Pintado, a very unique individual who can normally be seen fronting the highly acclaimed South London band Warmduscher. Mutado’s twisted stream-of-consciousness lunacy valiantly attempt to inhabit the increasingly unhinged persona of Donald Trump. The uncontrolled rant explodes over a collision of the duos beats and repetitive noise into something that could be called ‘Kraut-Gabba’.


The single's b-side is a heavy industrial remix by the mighty $hit and $hine – who dissolves the original song into a maelstrom of uncontrolled chaos but held together by an incredibly heavy and addictive groove.

PETBRICK's genre defying debut album 'I' can be bought from here on Ltd LP and CD: Bandcamp

Och – 'Nu:64' single released today




Today sees the release of Och's new single 'Nu:64' which is taken form their forthcoming album 'II' – released on ltd fluro yellow/black LP on 28 February. Preorder your copy now from all good record stores or digitally presave from here: Stream/Download


"Soundtracking a mysterious ceremony on a medieval planet." Shindig

"Take an existential trip through the dimensions." Fragmented Flaneur

“Sink into the band’s primal ooze.” Raven Sings The Blues

“This will always have a special place in my cosmic heart.” Cvlt Nation

The eight exploratory journeys, that makes-up Och's album  'II' lets the listener plot out a psychic course that traverses the likes of the meditative trance-states of vintage Popol Vuh, the chemically-altered mania of Guru Guru. Synth-driven propulsion akin to French iconoclasts Heldon and Lard Free, and naturally the bucolic raptures of the band’s erstwhile national forebears such as Träd Gräs Och Stenar and Älgarnas Trädgård, not to mention more recent exponents of the same lineage such as Hills and Dungen. Yet the entire vision the band conveys on this delirious travelogue is both timeless and paradoxically fresh.

The band are currently planning some rare live shows for later in the year, watch this space.

Raven Sings the Blues say some words about Och's new single “NU:64”


They say:

Out of the ashes of Flowers Must Die springs OCH. Some (though not confirmed who or how many) members of the band have sprung forth under the new moniker and are working through the detritus of the German Progressive collapse. Locked to a groove that’s as insistent as a heartbeat, the band washes the rinds of their sound in synth tones that hearken to Harald Grosskopf playing homage to Cluster and Popul Vuh. While there’s a Kosmiche nature to “NU:64” its just smoke above the propulsive motor. The band’s album is hard to parse into pieces – winding up more of a soundbath that’s best experienced in the whole, but this nugget is a damn good entry point. Check out the video by Fredric Ilmarson above and begin to sink into the band’s primal ooze. The record lands 2/28 on Rocket Recordings.

3voor12vpro reviews Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs live at Eurosonic


They say:

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Has the hottest licks licks licks

The English port city of Newcastle is known for two things: the metal band Venom and Newcastle Brown Ale. Add those two together and you get Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs (also called Pigs x7). Also from Newcastle. The mix of Marshalls and Orange amplifiers that are warming up considerably before the performance in the white hall light of Mutua Fides, are already promising. 

The five (two with long hair, three with fresh short) play a mix of stoner, sludge, metal and straight-up noise. A lot of use, many changes in tempo but played with soul and a certain funk. James Brown on four revs. Wolfmother with real balls. Today we did not see the amplifiers open that far yet. The goblet is also allowed at full power. Singer Matthew Baty has a reasonable throat, but it must have its appearance. In 45 minutes an intense workout comes along reminiscent of Henry Rollins. Including the shiny black sport pants. Occasionally he turns the knobs of an extra noise bin. Applause is meaningless. Everything has to be broken and with oldie 'Sweet Relief' that is no problem. In the end, everything lingers in motion, pounding, rattling and echoing. Until we can do nothing but shout "WHO ARE THE KINGS OF THE FATEST LICKS?" The answer then automatically echoes back from the stage: Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs. (RL)...
