The Best Band in New York is HUSH.

Share:

Back in August we asked you to help us find the best unsigned bands in America. After listening to hundreds of submissions and calling each other lots of names, we finally narrowed down our pick for the largest exporter of Seinfeld in the world. The best band in New York is HUSH.

Let’s kick this off with some interesting facts you didn’t know about New York. I bet you didn’t know that:

1). I’ve never been to New York.

2).

So now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about a bunch of cliche New York shit that everyone knows. There’s pizza, Derek Jeter, Wall Street bankers, buskers, Spider-Man, sharp cheddar cheese, lots of Cubans, Donald Trump, The New York Stinkerbockers, the UN and….hey, wait. This wasn’t in Home Alone 2, I’m pretty sure. If you look under here I think you’ll find…yes.

Right under your feet, rattling the sewers with all 8 strings and causing manhole covers to vibrate loose and subway trains to derail. Rat kings and baby alligators scurry and clamor towards the light as loud, lumbering riffs ooze from sewage-caked fingers and crack the decades old mortar in the subterranean walls. Charles Cure’s tortured roars ride atop the rank waves of effluence and command the slow-motion chaos with sheer force of will. This is HUSH.

On first listen, the easiest and perhaps most obvious comparison to make is Neurosis. But the style of play is really where the similarities end. This is much more raw and visceral. With Neurosis you’re never really concerned about getting grit stuck in your teeth, and whereas Scott Kelly seems at times drained by our impending annihilation, Charles Cure is just fucking angry about it. If Neurosis is art, HUSH. is destruction.

What we have here is heft. Weight. Mass. This music is an anvil made of dark matter. HUSH. is doom that commands its space authoritatively, never wasting a precious second on anything that doesn’t push the music forward. The grimy, thick distortion of the guitars is made nearly impenetrable by the 8 string bass, while the rhythmic hammering of the drums and rage-fueled vocals pull it all together to form a slowly rolling, flaming boulder crushing anything and anyone in its path.

You do not listen to HUSH. You behold them.

hush-band

Behold

 

But you don’t have to take my incoherent ramblings for it. Our rageaholic leader has some words of praise as well:

Joe Thrashnkill: Sometimes I get the urge to get really, really angry for no reason. It’s the reason I read The Blaze or try to drive home at 5 PM sharp. Thankfully, I have a new trigger to set off my rage vessel: HUSH. You can find me at the gym jamming UNEXIST while wildly swinging weights around with a vein the size of a garden hose chucking out of my skull.

Be sure to check out both of HUSH.’s excellent releases on their Bandcamp page for the low low price of whatever you feel like giving them (but please give them something).

Honorable Mentions:

Fate Breaks Dawn – Thrashy power metal – sort of like Overkill if Overkill were nerds. Probably about dragon fucking. Find them on Bandcamp.

Shadow Strike – Catchy symphonic power metal from Long Island. Probably also about dragon fucking. Also on Bandcamp.

Bleak – Sicker than fuck hardcore. Seriously, just listen to those drums on this Bandcamp split.

Moon Tooth – HessianHunter really, really likes this prog outfit. Check ’em out on the Bandcamp.


The Toilet ov Hell is on an absurd quest to find the best unsigned band in each state of this glorious union. The purpose? To shine the spotlight on bands that deserve more exposure. Also, we’re going to determine once and for all the greatest state in the nation. Each state winner is decided by a collection of 25 judges. After we’ve announced the winner of each state, we’re gonna throw them all in a winner-take-all bracket and leave the votes up to you. Who will be the best unsigned band in the United States? Which state is superior? We can’t wait to find out.

    This is super rad stuff. Really making my Wednesday morning a lot better.

  • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

    Cool stuff. This will always be my #1 thing named hush tho

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=W1PNvopXjbg

  • This is beastly. Vocals sound like he’s pushing a monsterous shit out of his ass. That is a compliment. Bleak rips as well, hearing some Disembodied going on there.

    • I don’t know what Bleak did to get their drum tone on that split but all bands should do that all the time.

      • RustyShackleford

        Sorta random but I found out last week, cause I was wearing their tshirt, that my professor is tight with the drummer. Couldn’t promise anything but we could totes try to score an interview. They don’t get tons of press but I think they’ve been touring around the northeast this spring, saw them about a month ago.

        • HessianHunter

          Bleak? I’m booking a show for them, I’m sure they’d be down for an interview if I asked. They’re touring for like 6 weeks straight or some crazy shit for a newish indie band.

          • RustyShackleford

            Do it man! They seemed like a bunch of cool guys when I talked to them at their show. Since I do social media for our college radio station I’ve shared their stuff a couple times and they seemed really stoked about it. I agree it seems like they’ve been playing constantly! Think they are doing another show here in the beginning of May.

          • HessianHunter

            You live in NY? Or the Northeast?

          • RustyShackleford

            NY. I go to Syracuse so that’s where I’m at most of the year cept like breaks/summer/whatnot. Just noticed on their FB they’ve played a lot in PA, CNY and so forth.

          • more beer

            That is one grey town 6 months out of the year. I had a bunch of friends there and have been there numerous times.

          • RustyShackleford

            Yep. I love snow but it is brutal haha. Supposed to snow tomorrow/Friday WE DONT HAVE SPRING

          • more beer

            I know I used to refuse to go up there 6 months out of the year because of that shit. The weather sucked enough in Yonkers who needs that shit up there. I will say that me and some friends did set a record for getting fucked with by multiple law enforcement agency’s there one weekend. In all of those small towns around Syracuse.They spoke to us in every town we were in. Some how no one got arrested.

          • HessianHunter

            And they’re FROM Syracuse! You should get to see them lots!

          • RustyShackleford

            Haha I know! I’m hoping to see them again the first week of May.

      • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

        You mean, have a drummer that sounds like he’s hitting his snare and toms with authority instead of being a limp-wristed weakling?

      • The bass drums and toms sound thunderous. The snare takes some getting used to.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain
    • KJM

      Dust off, nuke the arena from orbit. Only way to be sure.

    • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

      When you hear the new Papa Roach album and be like…

    • RustyShackleford

      Can’t see the whole URL. Fuck you for making me click on that thinking it was something cool. *clears browser history* I’M NOT A POSER!

    • OldMetalHead

      Yeah, no. I used to have an ironic / guilty pleasure thing for 5FDP, but I’m done with them after the rip-off double disk shit they did. I have Infest. Haven’t listened to Papa Roach since then

    • This made my penis soft.

    • Tyree

      Only if I get a pair of free basketball shorts and some tight ass ear gauges/plugs with my ticket purchase.

      • Guppusmaximus

        Imagine if you just *poofed* into that look by just buying the tickets. I think the whole instant ear-gauging would be pretty painful but maybe not as painful as having to hear those shitty bands live…

        • Tyree

          It all sucks. I honestly don’t understand the whole ear gauge thing. Completely baffling to me.

          • Goat of Dank desires

            I’ve heard that ear gauges are really bad for your hearing. Maybe they’re protecting themselves from their own taste in music?

          • KJM

            I don’t have a single piercing or tattoo, never felt the need.

          • Tyree

            Same. I don’t mind tattoos, but I don’t want to spend the money and I really don’t want to regret making a bad decision years later. I’ll just stick to buying music and beer.

          • Goat of Dank desires

            You’ll never regret buying beer. Never.

          • Goat of Dank desires

            I’ve got a tattoo, but I don’t understand people that completely cover themselves up with them.

          • Guppusmaximus

            I was kind of into it until it just became another uniform kinda like sleeve tattoos. I never went all gauge-y and shit with my piercings and it wasn’t too long before I removed them. Honestly, I’m just done with the whole image over music quality mentality.

    • Guppusmaximus

      If by ‘going’ you mean not buying a ticket, not leaving my house & not getting into my car to drive to the venue then, yes, I’m going.

  • RustyShackleford

    I saw Moon Tooth at St. Vitus and it was CRAZY! We were just grabbing drinks after my friend’s set and weren’t too interested, then we heard the drummer just go off and we ran in. Fucking nuts. Also Bleak Syracuse AYYYYYYYYYY thats whaddup

  • Guppusmaximus

    In regards to Moon Tooth, I still like Exemption better (Ray’s old band). Public Cemetery Party was much more crushing & fun!! https://exemption.bandcamp.com/album/public-cemetery-party

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt O)))

    Fun HUSH facts: vocalist Charles Cure did some fill-in vocals for best band in NJ Black Table when vocalist Mers Sumida got sick on the road and messed up her ribs. Their cover art was designed by Mers. I also officially endorse Charles Cure’s beard oil: https://www.etsy.com/shop/grandfathersbeardoil?product_tag=beard-oil

    • That’s some damn SYNERGY at work.

      • Pagliacci is Kvlt O)))

        The whole circle of people/bands connected to Black Table (HUSH, Dead Empires, Downfall of Gaia, So Hideous) are just insanely talented people. I’m glad they’re getting the attention they deserve.

    • Guacamole Jim

      Honest question: is beard oil worth it?

      • Pagliacci is Kvlt O)))

        I wouldn’t say it’s a must, but it does fancy up the beard with a nice sheen. If you have dry skin under your beard, it will help with that, but a dandruff shampoo will also work (from experience). Honestly, if it wasn’t made by Charles, I’m not sure I would have bought it. I bought it mainly to help a metal brother out.

        • Guacamole Jim

          Good to know. I suffer a bit from dry skin under the beard, but it’s not bad at all. I may give oil a try though. Thanks dewd!

      • Tyree
  • There is so. much. food. in New York. I wish I could work their for like a few months or a year, just to sample the delights…

    • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

      Except for the wimpy pizza and inferior hot dogs. May I introduce you to the superior, aka Chicago, versions?

      http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4b/Giordano%27s_Deep_Dish_Pizza.jpg

      On your left, you will see a mighty, decked to the brim hot dog (obviously Chicago style). To your right, you will see a wimpy specimen that no one over 5 years old would ever eat unless they’re a New Yorker. Obviously they eat from the kid’s menu over there.

      http://s1.hubimg.com/u/213806_f496.jpg

      • KJM

        Deep dish is an abomination.

        • Agreed. I want to eat a pizza, not a tomato pie.

        • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

          Not nearly as bad as NY pizza.

          http://s3-media2.fl.yelpassets.com/bphoto/VfXp0JDeA6Rp7wwHW7zwxw/348s.jpg

          Where’d they get the ideas for their pizza? Chuck E. Cheese?!

          • KJM

            Oh please, that pic was probably taken at a Chuck E Cheese or some such. The tablecloth gives it away.

            If you can’t fold a slice in half and eat it without making a mess you’re not eating pizza, you’re eating lasagna.

          • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

            Nope. It’s from some place called Bonanno’s over in NYC.

          • KJM

            Well, I can scratch that one off and go to the 1,000,000 other places in NYC(or in my own neighborhood) that are better.

          • I can break down the next 90 minutes of this argument:
            X REGIONAL FOODSTUFF IS SUPERIOR TO Y REGIONAL FOODSTUFF.

          • KJM

            There is no argument. Deep dish pizza is lasagna. That’s all there is to it.

          • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

            Deep dish is cheese in between two layers of dough (a bottom layer and a top layer). If that’s how you’ve been eating lasagna (with only a top and bottom layer), you have been cheated big time!

          • KJM

            I didn’t say it was good lasagna… ^_^

          • KJM

            Then I guess I should call it a calzone.

          • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

            Kinda sorta.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            & TOTALLY KICK ASS!!!

          • He didn’t call it GOOD lasagna . . .

            Edit: I didn’t read far enough down.

            TX still has by far the best ribs and chili I’ve ever had, though.

          • Akerskronks ov Steele

            Yeah, Texas and KC BBQ I can dig. Not so much Charleston’s but then again I’m no fan of collard greens

          • I may be biased, but KC BBQ is >>>>

          • yeah, and Gates sauce is especially rocket

          • Gates sauce is pretty good, though I prefer Oklahoma Joe’s (now called Joe’s KC) and Jack Stack’s sauce.

          • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

            Looking at the GIS for NY pizza, it’s not looking too impressive. Wishing I could find a decent place with crispy crust around here, but that’s been a no go.

          • more beer

            Like the Bonnanno Crime Family. They don`t give a shit a making Pizza it`s money laundering front.

          • more beer

            You sir are correct. Maybe he needs to revisit Rock n roll High School to see how it`s done.

          • more beer

            A New York slice of Sicilian is better than any pizza that ever came out of Chicago. New York Dirty water dogs with mustard and those caramelized onions are better than any Chicago hot dog too. Who the fuck puts celery salt on a hot dog?

          • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

            Not any Chicagoan I’ve ever known, myself included.

          • NY pizza is fucking amazing and you shall BOW TO IT!

            Chicago “pizza” requires quotation marks because it is not pizza.

          • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

            I’ve had more than my share of NY pizza, and the things look like they’re too sad to even hold itself up.

            http://www.pizzanetto.com/cm/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/ny03-pizza1.jpg

            “Come on, pizza, pull yourself together! Don’t die on me!”

      • KJM

        Nathan’s are the best franks. All others are just pressed bologna.

        • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

          Pffffffft, even Anthony Bourdain’s stated many a time that NYC can’t hold a candle to Chicago dogs. That’s coming from a lifelong New Yorker (him)!

          • KJM

            As long as it isn’t boiled or steamed, I suppose.

      • Tyree

        Heartburn of total death.

      • Akerskronks ov Steele

          I can’t tell what that is (a chimichonga?), but damn I want that in my belly, pronto!

          • Looks like a chimichanga to me. Also looks like if you put that in your belly it might not ever come out!

          • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

            Oh it’ll come out, alright! It’ll be like Pacific Rim in my colon, though.

        • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

          Doh, nevermind! I figured out where.

      • Lou Malnati’s >>>>>>>>>>>>>

        • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

          Oh hell yeah! Loves me some Lou’s. Avoid Gino’s at any cost though!

          • KJM

            Is Gino’s the d-bag in Philly who has “order in English” posted on his menu or some shit like that?

          • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

            Nah, never heard of him. It’s full name is Gino’s East. Worst deep dish I’ve ever had and the servers are absolute hipster morons.

      • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

        I LOVE YOU AND FULLY ENDORSE CHICAGO PIZZA AS SUPERIOR PIZZA!!!

      • That pizza looks FIERCE.

        • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

          Indeed! It’s a two fisted dynamo packing nothing but big guns and big balls.

          • Where’s that from? Title says Giordano’s, I might have to go there next time I visit family in Riverside. Also Kuma’s.

          • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

            Yep!
            Been to Kuma’s. Best burgers in the city, and plays NOTHING but metal full blast. Gotta get there early, though. Even Lady Gaga had to wait two hours for a seat.

          • Packed? Damn…

          • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

            Yup, almost constantly.

    • As someone who goes there every now and then, there’s alot to do. But some parts on NYC smell like straight up garbage.

      • My sense of smell has deteriorated dramatically over the past few years, so it didn’t bother me too much when I visited.

  • This New York edition is very good!

    Moon Tooth is very good. My pick is Fate Breaks Dawn, I even #doomloaded their EP because it have some flashy solos in here.

    Awesome job, Frosty!

    • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

      Not bad. Definitely some Dragonforce/Power Quest worship with this one.

  • Goat of Dank desires

    This is pretty good, but nothing on here compares to that drum sound of Bleak. It sounds like they recorded the snare underwater, I love it.

  • KJM

    Besides, if I were going to NYC for food it sure wouldn’t be pizza since I already have that in Boston, Asian food all the way.

    • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

      I’d definitely want to go to Momofoku. I’m a big David Chang fan.

    • Goat of Dank desires

      Asian food rules many a butt.

      • KJM

        We have great Asian food in Boston(Ginza FTW), but NYC just has more of it. We’re nothing compared to San Francisco in that dept though.

  • Hey! I’m again doing the #LinkTravelingAroundUSAaboardGoogleImages707

    New York is one of those places I never want to visit in real life. All the glamour/overpopulation/urbanic landscape makes me want to puke. But, I still like to inform about random stuff, so I’m using my plane called #GoogleImages707 to see what the humans in New York do!

    – New York, after Mexico DF, have the most population in the north american continent. So, the housing is becoming a problem, according to some newspapers I’ve read it’s very expensive to live there. At least they got a “efficient” public service and the city is clean and it’s right now one of the safest cities to live in the continent. Woah, that must be awesome!

    http://k31.kn3.net/taringa/3/C/C/9/A/F/QuimicaPura/71E.jpg

    – More than 75 % of the residents don’t have a car and uses the subway. Even tiburones ride the metro. This is a very inclusive society, eh?

    http://www.eluniversal.com.mx/img/2013/08/Int/tiburon_metro_nueva_york-movil.jpg

    – Also, the subway is very weird…

    – Since it’s a very touristic zone, there’s a lot of places to visit. The one I want to go is one called Barcade, and it’s a small bar with retro arcade machines. That’s cool, you can chug a couple of beers and beat the posers in Galaga.

    https://jmstevens.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/barcade1.jpg

    – They have their own accent called Brooklyneese, or something like that. I always thought the US english was very standard, didn’t knew about several accents!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcUkSJvHAfQ

    – Adultery is still a crime and women can go topless in public if it isn’t for a business. BOING!

    – The city never sleeps, practically. It seems that it’s so big and crowded that i’ve encounter thousands of food, cinema, theaters, clubs and different places to go that are open 24 hour. That’s very crazy.

    **BROOOM**

    Well, I’ve return to Maracaibo. See ya next time!

    • KJM

      Ah, but NYC has the Saint Vitus club which always has good Metal.

      Most of those pics look like they were taken in Manhattan. Go to Brooklyn or Queens and you will get a very different view of NYC.

      • I was reading about the different “boroughs” inside New York but that gives me headaches because i didn’t understood the system and I just had to google new york stuff without caring about it 🙁

        #JustSpanglishProblems

        • KJM

          To most people “Manhattan = New York City”. It’s easiest if you think of NYC as 5 cities in one really. Even the different boroughs have unique neighborhoods where you might as well be a galaxy away from the rest of the city. It’s a big place.

        • more beer

          Here is how that works there is NYC it has 5 boroughs Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island. They are the different counties of NYC. All of them have their own county government courts and so on. But they also fall under the City of New York. I`m going to expand a little bit On what KJM said because he is very correct. New york changes neighborhood to neighborhood and block to block. For example Little Italy in The Bronx Arthur Ave. Is one of the safest places you can be NYC nice little area filled with shops and restaurants and obviously Italians. If you go a couple of blocks beyond there it is one of the worst neighborhoods you can imagine. Drugs, gangs and murder. It`s a big diverse place. you can`t judge it through pictures.

          • Now I’m getting it!

            They have their own mayors and all of that, them? They have their own administrations and social helpings?

          • more beer

            Yea except they are called Borough Presidents and they all fall under the mayor of NYC.

            Very different from Chicago. It definitely changes neighborhood to neighborhood, but the neighborhoods tend to be relatively large. You’ll definitely know when you’re walking into a bad area well before you get there.

      • #RandomBronxFact

        Now I remember this. A couple of years ago, President Chávez was going to the U.N. offices and he passed some hours in the Bronx.

        With a Citgo partnership, the goverment of Venezuela gives donations and charities; and from what I remember gasoline and oil to fuel those weird sewers you have that puff a lot of smoke in the winter, how’s called?

        • KJM

          We had that same Citgo partnership in Boston too.

        • more beer

          That smoke is steam coming out of the subway when the warm air meets the cold air.

          • Ohhh, I always thought it was to make the streets much warmer when the winter comes.

          • more beer

            No it`s just that it`s hotter in the subway than it is outside. When it`s cold out and the wind is blowing between all the buildings. It is cold and nothing is warming it up.

          • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

            No, but that do that in certain Japanese cities. Tokyo actually has electric sidewalks that warm up.

          • Lacertilian

            That steam is coming from the heat of all the pizza being consumed down in the sewers.

      You seem to have left out the fact that it is the greatest city in the world. There is always something to do and you can see a show almost every night of the week. You have a picture of what is one of the biggest tourist spots in Manhattan. So of course there are a lot of people.There are a lot of strange people but there are a lot of strange people every where.

      • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

        I wouldn’t mind living in NYC if it weren’t so goddamn expensive. The rest I can deal with, especially after 14 years in the murder capital of America, which is now probably every bit as expensive. Woohoo, Manhattan prices for Detroit living, and we reelected the idiot who made it all happen!

        • more beer

          That`s why I left i had a good job and I could never get ahead. I lived just outside the city and it was way expensive. It sucks when they price you out of the place where you grew up. But like every where else it has good and bad. I live in a nice neighborhood in Denver. But if you go 5 blocks north it`s all ghetto. 3 people have been murdered there in the last couple of months. I think it`s pretty much the same every place. As for the guy in charge I didn`t vote for him either time I always go with the independent candidates. I know it`s a waste of a vote but I hate both major party’s equally. The Circle Jerks said it best ” you`re all gonna die and you voted for that guy”

      That subway nipple guy is my idol.

    • Dagon

      I love urban landscapes packed to the brim with horrible people smelling like piss.

      • Like every latin american city? 😛

        • Dagon

          No shit, I actually really like large cities, for some stupid reason. I get that being in the field is cool and all but I like skyscrapers, pollution and things.

          I will most likely move to São Paulo next year.

          • Dagon, please come to Maracaibo. We don’t have skyscrapers, but we have pollution and the worse smell in the entire country!

    • how many GBP’s do you require to make St. Louis a destination on #LinkTravelingAroundUSAaboardGoogleImages707?

      • I need 1 hug, 1 smile, 1 World of Warcraft fan art, 3 bottles of Ice Tea, 2 hamburguers and 5 tequeños.

    • Dat Kansas City date. I’m down.

    • Tyree

      I’ll probably see them in Baltimore. Last time I saw them was outside on the sunniest most lifeloving day possible. Be good to see them in darkness.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        I can’t decide which one I’m going to. Probably Chicago.

        • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

          Haven’t been to the Cobra Lounge, but heard it’s pretty good.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I haven’t either. But it’s on a Saturday, seems like a no-brainer.

  • Dagon
  • This is the kind of music I need today. I’m in a particularly saucy, salty mood and feel like destroying the nearest little bitch poser.

  • this band is good. and i used to avoid all things doom.
    You’re tearing me apart, Papa Joe!

    amirite?

    • You am rite.

    • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

      The music itself is ok, but the vocals make him sound like he’s constipated. 2/10 tendies, with an eyedropper of honey mustard.

      • MegaMan

        I didn’t even listen to it ¯_(ツ)_/¯

        • Kim J’s Sexy Steamed Buns

          Not missing much.

  • Sweet band but these dudes are from upstate, not NYC, so the Spider Man etc stuff doesn’t really apply. New York is a really big state. HessianHunter has it right: Moon Tooth ftw!

    • Snagged that EP last night. So great!

    • Upstate New York: home of… uh… Some schools, Earth Crisis, and the worst NFL championship luck?

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Is upstate New York not New York State somehow?

  • Fred Barnewold

    thanks for the review of my boys band ….Fate Breaks Dawn. I like the nerd part. Thank the good lordy they are and they are some badazzzzzzz musicians while they’re at it …you got that right brother m/
