Are you guys as excited for Full of Hell‘s collaboration with Merzbow as I am? It’s due out on Profound Lore Records this November.

We at the Toilet ov Hell think this should propel Full of Hell into Katy Perry like levels of stardom, Radiohead at the very least. If you aren’t familiar with Full of Hell, they bill themselves as “genre grinding death in the form of hardcore punk” on their Facebook page. They play grindcore with noisy and sludgy passages soaked in reverb. Is sludgecore a thing? It is now. We think the public is ready for this in mass consumption! The collaboration with Merzbow is what will likely put Full of Hell on the map. If you aren’t familiar with Merzbow, he has long been the figurehead of the noise and Japanoise scenes. If you aren’t familiar with his music, you still have likely heard or read his name during any exploration into extreme music. I imagine Full of Hell are as excited for this collaboration as I am!

I first heard the band last year when I discovered their full length album Rudiments of Mutilation, which was one of my favorite records from 2013. I then started to dive into their back catalog, which contains another full length album, a smattering of splits and EPs, and even a couple of short noise projects. I was pleasantly surprised to discover a wealth of music from a band that started releasing music in 2010. This is one of my favorite tracks from Rudiments of Mutilation; it’s my jam.

I was talking with gorenoise guru Christian Molenaar this weekend when he tipped me off to the Full of Hell / Merzbow collaboration. Then, like some prophetic divination, the album cover appeared in my newsfeed the very next day. Profound Lore Records uploaded this Youtube teaser yesterday morning (very modern and chic in my humble opinion). Though short, it should give you a good idea of what to expect from Full of Hell and Merzbow this November; it sounds harrowing.

Check out the teaser for Full of Hell / Merzbow, and check out Rudiments of Mutilation  if you aren’t familiar with this exciting new band. It’s as good a place to start in their catalog as any!

  • Randall Thor

    It’s called Entombed-core

    • Clandestine or die, nerds.

      • Randall Thor

        Left Hand Path and Wolverine Blues are also acceptable entries

        • Agreed.

        • Howard Dean

          Clandestine is good, and WB is fun, but to me, Entombed never got better than Left Hand Path. Perhaps the best Swedeath album and guitar tone this side of Like an Everflowing Stream.

      • Oh man, MSD is a Mod now! LSD is going to be jelly!

        • I needed a deputy to lay down the law as Deputy D was promoted to Detective.

          • Now all we need a blood spatter analyst. Amirite?

            GL

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            I would love to be deputized as I’m on here almost all of the time even when I’m at work. I think Deputy Vincent Bennett has a nice ring to it. don’t you?

    • Christian Molenaar

      Entombed in a puddle of rapidly hardening mud, perhaps.

      • Randall Thor

        Yeah I made a mistake, I know

  • W.

    Good jorb, NegroD. You my boy, blue.

    • Negrodamus

      … all we are is dust in the wind…

  • Metaphysical Anus

    I didn’t know about this! Great collabs this year. Waiting for the Sunn/Scott Walker collab.

    • Negrodamus

      Did you catch the earlier Sunn collaboration from this year? Had a red cover I recall.

      • Metaphysical Anus

        It was with Ulver, so of course I did. I enjoyed it quite much.

        • Howard Dean

          That was a good collaboration. I liked it better than the Sunn/Boris collab. from a few years ago.

          I’m waiting for Sunn to follow up Monoliths & Dimensions, though. That was such a good album, and advanced their sound beyond their normal boundaries to such an extent that I feel like they are a little nervous to try and live up to it.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Oh man, I loved Monoliths & Dimentions so much. It felt like a big step up from the disappointment that was Black One.

          • W.

            Didn’t Thou and The Body do a collaboration?

          • Negrodamus

            They did!

            The Body also recently did a tight collab with The Haxan Cloak.

          • Tyree

            I got to get on that collab with The Haxan Cloak.

          • Negrodamus

            Tyree that shit is tight. It’s called “I Shall Die Here”. A guy I know who is not into metal but is into electronic music was the one who put me onto it, which was interesting. I was like, hey, I know The Body!

          • W.

            Linky?

          • Negrodamus

            Sorry about the delay on this W., my notifications on here are being quite janky today, probably from the new update which in theory is sweet once it is working properly.

            Bandcamp only has two tracks available unless you purchase, so give this a try:

            https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7BzcGaKw05GjTNTtpBatha5DZS2k01Je

  • Tyree

    Rudiments of Mutilation was a beast of an album. Looking forward to the new offering and seeing them at MDF! Do you dig Bastard Feast at all NegroD? They are similar to Full of Hell. They should all tour together with Nails!

  • Wizard Aura

    I’m only going to listen to it exactly once, but I’m so stoked for this.

    • Negrodamus

      Only one listen? Mind if I ask why?

      • Wizard Aura

        Right after I finish with the Italian section at Amoeba, my next step is the Experimental section where I always geek out and end up buying some weird disc I’ve never heard of that costs $35. I get back to my car, rip off the plastic, throw that shit in my CD player, turn it up, and smoke bowls until I get home. Once home, I text all my friends about this awesome noise shit I just came up on and how cool I am for being so experimental and smoking so much weed. I’m super hungry by this point so I get back in my car for some T-Bell, take out the hand packaged limited special edition import cd from my stereo, lovingly place it back in its case, and throw it in a pile in my back seat so I can find it 5 years later in a shattered case, melted by the sun.

  • Howard Dean

    I see the term “sludgecore” as a little redundant, and possibly even a malapropism. Sludge is partially “core” by its very definition and design (at least by the pre-metalcore and deathcore definition of “core”). Sludge in its purest form, in the vein of Eyehategod, Crowbar, and Grief, is doom with hardcore punk sensibilities. It’s decidedly “core” in its root sound.

    • Negrodamus

      HD, putting it down as always. Sludgecore isn’t a thing now, lol.

    • Tyree
      • Howard Dean

        Byah! Grief is one of my jams from my sludgier days, that album right there in particular. I love(d) the artwork, too.

        • Tyree

          I want this bitch on vinyl so bad!

          • Howard Dean

            I’ve only got it on CD. I don’t really buy vinyl (practicality issue for me) But I salute any and all fellow physical media buyers! High fives! Physical copies may be the past, but they are my present and future. Byah, lifelovers! Buy a CD or leave the hall!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            It annoys me how I can’t get any physical copies of Coil’s albums. I’ve got some vinyl, but I prefer cd. I do have a couple of first edition Frank Zappa vinyls, so that is nice.

          • Howard Dean

            First edition Zappas are pretty sweet, I reckon. Is it a pain in the ass to get a lot of physical copies in Finland? I know there are a lot of great regional scenes in the country, but is it difficult to import stuff from other countries?

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Maybe with some really underground stuff, but usually I can find good albums. There’s gonna be a small record fair here in my hometown in november. There’s a lot of good music there, mostly vinyl. Last year I got a first edition of Roxy & Elsewhere from there.

          • Howard Dean

            Nice. There are a couple of decent stores around me (I live in the northeastern U.S.), but I’ve pretty much picked them clean. I mostly just order stuff now. Ordering stuff from Europe can be pretty expensive, though. But it’s worth it, as a lot of Euro distros carry stuff that American distros don’t have.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I have ordered from USA couple of times, but the postal fee is so big. I have a good record store in my hometown plus a record store chain that has stores around Finland. I can usually find what I find from either of them. There’s also quite a lot of good Finnish music to be found quite easily, like Kuusum Profeetta, Circle and Keuhkot.

          • W.

            For the record, I’m glad you’re here.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            You are? “For the record” reminded me of this song. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JsrnZdgmmXA

          • W.

            You bet, even if I did hassle you a bit. It was all in good fun.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            When did you hassel me?

          • W.

            Umm, jokingly back and forth a few days ago, maybe? It was your other name.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Do you mean the racism thing?

          • W.

            Yah. That was totally a joke in case you weren’t aware.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            That didn’t rustle my jimmies at all. I knew that it was a joke. That, or you had spent too much time on tumblr.

          • W.

            Trust me, I like to make fun of tumblr.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I love to it as well. I have had some nice conversations with tumblr knights on youtube.

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            I have a cassette of You Can’t Do That On Stage 4. I bought it for 5 dollars as well as the Live Shit, Binge and Purge box set from Metallica on cassette which was also 5 dollars.

          • Tyree

            I don”t by a lot vinyl to be honest. I only buy an album on vinyl if I worship it. This would be one of them that I worship.

          • Howard Dean

            I know a lot of people who buy vinyl that way. Vinyl itself can be prohibitively expensive, so that’s probably a good strategy.

            I literally only buy CDs, and I only “really” listen (that is, listen to an entire album repeatedly and not just one or two songs at random) to music that I buy. I’ve never been into downloading, and I’ve yet to jump onto the Spotify/satellite radio/Bandcamp wagons. I like having my CDs too much. If I have to spend a little more, that’s ok with me.

          • Howard Dean

            Actually, I have used Bandcamp to buy a CD on one occasion. I used a Bandcamp to buy my copy of Svartidaudi’s “Flesh Cathedral.” (Amazing fucking album! 9.5/10 byaaaahs!)

          • Tyree

            Bandcamp is a magical place.

          • I’m the exact same. My GF keeps trying to get me to use Spotify, but I just prefer owning all my music so nothing can happen to it. Also, I don’t always have an internet connection on my phone to use Spotify, and my phone can’t hold much music. I prefer to load up my ipod with my own shit.

          • Howard Dean

            ACFP knows what I’m talking about! I don’t want to use my phone or computer for music. I want to be able to throw on a CD in my truck or listen to my iPod if I’m working out or walking around. My phone battery dies fast enough as it is. I don’t want to kill it twice as quickly with music. I’ll take two separate devices.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I have an mp3 player, but I only use it when I’m not home.

          • W.

            I use Spotify, but I also use quite a bit of my limited personal finances to buy CDs too!

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            I buy used vinyl and CDs. I never buy new vinyl except for two of the Slayer reissues that came out. New vinyl is insanely expensive and not worth my time.

          • Scrimm

            Amen! I buy way too many cd’s, but I never get the same connection to the music when it’s just a download. It’s all about the complete package for me. If you didn’t have my vote before you do now! Physical copies or GTFO!

          • W.

            I still buy CDs when I can. I buy vinyl too, but way less frequently due to expense.

          • Virgil

            All I buy is CDs. I’m not going to cheat anybody. I have around 2000 CDs are better and it will be a lot of work for me to go digital. Plus am I the only one who reads the notes?

    • You make a good point.
      I love your breakfast sandwiches.

      • Howard Dean

        Thank you. I make each of them individually in my kitchen, cooked with only the finest possum and transient gypsy meat.

        • Metaphysical Anus

          Hmmmmmm. There’s something weird with those sandwiches, but I can’t figure out what.

          • Howard Dean

            It’s probably the spices and marinade. I soak the gypsy corpses for two days in a homemade brine before I run them through the table saw and grinder. Neutralizing the witchcraft and spellwork is the only way to isolate the good flavors.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            That must be it. I prefer my gypsy sandwiches with witchcraft.

          • Howard Dean

            It’s ok, but I prefer my gypsy sandwich heavy with the unadulterated and pungent flavor of pure sorrow.

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            I make a good sandwich. It’s cooked with the finest meats I can get and american cheese. I put meats in it that I marinate in sorrow and depression and put a sauce I called Sad Sauce which is just sriracha. I always drink a sadacchino which is just coffee with a ton of sugar and caramel in it. I always listen to sad songs when I make these sadwiches such as Ugly Kid Joe’s cover of Cats in the Cradle and any funeral doom I can find. Yes, the meat used is gypsy meat and I use a rub of crushed red pepper on it.

    • Negrodamus

      … wait a sec, HD, how would you label Full of Hell anyways? Some people think the microgenrification of metal is annoying (my girlfriend, for one) but I dig it.

      • Howard Dean

        This is admittedly a tough band to categorize. However, I’m more in the camp of using multiple genre tags, rather than smashing a few genre names together to make a new microgenre tag (ex. I like to use black/death metal rather than blackened death metal for bands like Akercocke and Belphegor). I would probably call this sludge/black/death metal, and align it with bands like Coffinworm and Lord Mantis, or like a tamer version of Dragged Into Sunlight.

        With my previous comment, I was just trying to illustrate that the “core” in a term like “sludgecore” is redundant, as the genre sludge has many firm roots in hardcore, and is therefore “core” by nature.

        • Negrodamus

          I have not listened to Dragged Into Sunlight but it sounds like I should! Lol. On Full of Hell’s Bandcamp they have listed themselves as hardcore, grindcore, noise, and noisegrind (first time I heard noisegrind). I can definitely hear the grindcore parts when they play their fast stuff.

          • Howard Dean

            Dragged Into Sunlight is incredible. I can’t recommend them enough. The name put me off when I first saw their CD in the store, but the cover art drew me in. Their debut album “Hatred For Mankind” floored me the first time I heard it. It is easily one of the most grating, vitriolic, and hateful records I’ve ever heard. Their follow-up album, “Widowmaker,” is a little different. It makes in a bit of shambling, unsettling weirdness to the full on hate-filled onslaught. It isn’t as good as their debut, but is still worth the listen.

          • W.

            They also have pretty intense artwork.

          • Howard Dean

            Yeah, the artwork for Hatred For Mankind is unsettling. And awesome.

            http://www.invisibleoranges.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/draggedintosunlight-hatredformankind.jpg

          • Tyree

            They put on a great live show.

          • Howard Dean

            I would so love to see them live. I’ve heard they’re super good and intense.

          • Negrodamus

            Looks like Lord Mantis artwork kinda (which has made me listen to them on private Spotify session before, srs)

          • Mr.CustodialArts

            I got sent to the principal’s office for doodling the EXACT same thing back in 3rd grade. Weird.

      • Howard Dean

        Honestly though, that’s just a tiny nitpick from my OCD/aspie mind. This is a good band with an interesting sound. Well done on this write-up. I’m impressed every single day with the quality of articles being written on the Toilet. 10/10 byahs! 0/5 flushes!

        • Negrodamus

          Ah, thanks HD I appreciate that. I actually did this one this morning, while I was at my day job. I just had the idea for it yesterday! It turned out as well as the last couple I poured my heart into, lol.

      • Cock of Steele

        It gets on my nerves, but I would really like to see roboslam become a thing.

        • Negrodamus

          Roboslam? Is that like slam metal with robot vocals?

          • Cock of Steele

            Could be, I was thinking of just heavy electronic noises, basically just a giant joke to see how many people take it seriously.

  • Occams_Razor_Ramon

    There were certainly drums and sounds in that teaser. I’m in!

    • Metaphysical Anus

      I’m gonna start a band called Drums & Sounds. Do you mind if I use it?

      • Occams_Razor_Ramon

        Go forth, my son, and create Drums & Sounds

        • Metaphysical Anus

          Now I’m gonna need someone to do those sounds. I’m not that good with them.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            The first one’s on me: http://tinyurl.com/mcdyywp

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Don’t flush it yet, you mechanical bastard! You haven’t even heard it!

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Use it in the song!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I could make a song around this flush. Loop it!

          • Ye Olde King Cobra Malt Liquor

            I used to do that kind of creation of sounds with drums involved. Now I’m trying to create synthpop and it’s not going well.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I can’t program drums for shit. I can only play them myself, preferably on an acoustic kit.

          • Ye Olde King Cobra Malt Liquor

            I use a drum machine and it’s not hard to program.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Maybe. I just prefer playing the drums myself. The feeling is great.

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            I just got back from the wake. Her family was so happy to see me, said that they were sorry it wasn’t under better circumstances. I paid my final respects and it really hurt to have to do. It was hard to look at her body in the coffin, she was so beautiful yet taken so soon. I was about to leave after having talked to some friends when her parents came up to me and gave me a note they found. They said they had read it and that they thought I should have it, saying that it was more for me than it was for them. They said she had left some stuff for me that they wanted me to pick up. I am reading the note as we speak and there was only one sentence that was for her parents. The opening sentence and the rest of the note was for me. Here is the opening sentence and I quote “Vinny, I’m sorry that I couldn’t say goodbye formally. I love you and I always will, even when I’m gone.” I just finished reading the rest of the note and I’m bawling my eyes out. I need to go to sleep. I’m feeling too much pain right now.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Totally man, loop it.

        • Ye Olde King Cobra Malt Liquor

          Come on Razor, me and the 24 pack of Miller Lite in your fridge are lonely. Come on Razor, drink us! Drink us!

    • Ye Olde King Cobra Malt Liquor

      Hey Razor, it’s me, your friendly neighborhood 40 ounce of malt liquor. You know you want some of the alcohol I have in my bottle. It’s nice and cold as it’s been in your fridge.

    • Negrodamus

      I also heard noises, that is what I liked about it!

  • CyberneticOrganism

    LOVE IT. NEED IT.

    • Negrodamus

      Unless something drastically changes, this is my most anticipated album until it is released.

  • Ye Olde King Cobra Malt Liquor

    Have any of you given the new Accept album a listen? If so, is it good?

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      accept can do no wrong since tornillo joined, the stuff they are putting out is metal heart quality at the least. it’s amazing, he is 50, and it took him that long to hit the big time. A real success story. Shows a person should never give up because you never know what opportunity is right around the corner.

      • Not Vincent Bennett

        It’s that good? I’ll have to give it a listen. Did I ever tell you about the two times I saw Exodus and Testament at this venue near me called The Chance? They were great, almost as great as when me and my now dead ex saw Celtic Frost there on their reunion tour and Summer Slaughter when it came here in 2008. Vader was there that year and Cryptopsy was there as well but they were touring The Unspoken King and they didn’t seem interested in performing in support of it. The only two bands who were at Summer Slaughter that sucked were Born of Osiris and Whitechapel. I also saw Symphony X there in 2007 with her. My first date with my ex girlfriend who died on Monday was a Ministry concert there in 2004 and then we saw KMFDM nine days later. The first time we saw Testament was in 2005 and the second time was 2007. Exodus was 2006 and 2008. Celtic Frost was also 2006.

      • Not Vincent Bennett

        I loved Metal Heart, it’s probably one of my favorite Accept albums. I loved Stalingrad as well.

  • Mr.CustodialArts

      Let’s revisit this when the review comes out, lol.

      I want to review this for our site, thought about calling “dibs”.

  • smelly poser turds

    Hahaha! You guys are beyond late with this news. FOH has been talking about it for months and the A389 page has been talking about it for a grip.
    your blog is nothing more than a second rate (at best) metalsucks.net/troll field of IMNs and attention seeking nerds.
    first that article on “slam” (hahaha) and now this.
    you guys are fucking posers!
    *flushes this diarrhea poser website*

    • Damn. You showed me. Guess I’d better go ahead and shut the whole site down.
