Gnod is one of my favourite bands ever and is actually one of the reasons why I started this website. Gnod is one of the very few bands that incorporate all off the things I love in music, the band makes the most hypnotic psychedelic music possible but can make the most destructive noiserock ever (Donovon’s Daughters is extremely good) and all the while this band keeps experimenting with sounds, genres and atmospheres. The band and members of the band have a lot of side project and all of them are really in interesting in one way or the other. Check out the one with White Hills wivh absolute gorgeous drone/psych. But they have a crapload of experimental and collaborations releases too. I think you get the picture. Now more important is the release of ‘Easy To Build, Hard To Destroy’ which is tricky-to-find, obscure and unreleased material from the heady early days of the band. All hail Gnod!
I made this website because I love Psychedelic rock and Noiserock and now and then their are bands that use both genres in their music and Gnod is one of them. Their latest album ‘Chapel Perilous’ is bone crushing noiserock but they have released excellent psych too, like the one with White Hills is absolute gorgeous drone/psych. But they have a crapload of experimental and collaborations releases too. I think you get the picture. Now more important is the release of ‘Easy To Build, Hard To Destroy’ is on preorder today and we det a first unreleased track called ‘They Live’ wich is excellent hypnotic psych.
I have been a big worshipper of Gnod for a long time now, and It is not only the bonecrushing noiserock that our Gnod sometimes produces but I love Gnod for their experimentalism, their search for the divine sound in noise, ambient, tribal rythms, industrial and what not. Not every release is as easy as the other but now I can feel the hand of Gnod touching me with this new release. This sounds trancelike. They have collaborated with Jesus, eu, I mean João Pais Filipe to make this gorgeous new record called ‘Faca De Fogo’ wich is already sold out :(.
Holy Scum is canalizing their anger into their music and the result is pretty damn cool. The band featuring members of Gnod, Schoolhouse, Shuck and vocals from Lauren Bolger from Locean has released an EP called ‘KILL’ a while ago and new they are back with a new EP called ‘Fuck’ wich is filled with trippy experimental noise, guitarsounds and general angryness. Yes, it is very great and yes, you should listen to it, and yes I mean now.
I love the energy of Gnod, they are one of my favourite bands and so I always check all their offshoots and other project and stuff by members and now I came across this band called Holy Scum with members of Gnod, Schoolhouse, Shuck and vocals from Lauren Bolger from Locean. Absolutely awesome stuff. Intens, noisy and full of aggression.

Check out Part I here if you have not already.
Sly & The Family Drone
Today we get the new track by noisemasters Sly & the Family Drone. I was really amazed by their previous 2019 album ‘Gentle Persuaders’, it was a really strong album that enden high on my end of the year list too. Now the new track is called ‘Shrieking Grief’ and is taken from their upcoming album ‘Walk It Dry’. The excellent album cover is made by Kazland. The new track is really heavy, the drums are intense, the saxophones and noise. Sly & the Family Drone is a band that keeps evolving and again we can hear how strong they are on this new track.
Last year in November and in February this year Hot Snakes have released two new singles. now we get the track from their 2018 split single w Mudhoney, released as a limited-edition 7″ for Sub Pop’s 30th anniversary, is being released digitally for the first time ever for one day only on Bandcamp on June 5.
La Jungle / Hyperculte Split
The is a new label that is called Hyperjungle and for their first release we get a split records between Belgian band LA Jungle and Hyperculte. Two hypnotic tracks for your listening pleasure.
The Band Whose Name is A Symbol
The hypnotic space rockers are back with an album called ‘Unsemble’ today. Recorded in 6 different locations on various devices by each member of TBWNIS during the months of March and April 2020. Track V recorded by Christopher Laramee (Wasted Cathedral) in Saskatoon, SK April, 2020 and herbed and whiskeyed by Jay Loos and Laramee. Again extremely hypnotic and experimental psych an spacerock.
KLÄMP is Jason Stöll (Sex Swing, Twin Sister, Mugstar, God Unknown Records, Bonnacons of Doom), Greg Wynne (Manatees) and Lee Vincent (Pulled Apart By Horses, Concentration Champ). KLÄMP makes fuzzd out noise rock, bass heavy post whatever. It is awesome and you need to check out the first track ‘Arise’ from their upcoming album ‘Hate You’ wich will be released on Godunknown in Spetember. The track was made in the shitty month of March 2020.
I have shared Naujawanan Baidar from the label Radio Khiyaban in the past, and I was so happy to discover this Netherlands based label because Naujawanan really brought me a lot of listening pleasure. It ended real high on my end of the year list between all the noise and heavy psych.
Now I immidiatly started following the label ofcourse and now there is a new release by a band called Carrom. This is an Indo-Canadian psychedelic rock band and they released their full album ‘Alter-Destinies’ today and it is a gorgeous piece of exotic psych. Buy your casette now, you need it.
Toronto based feminist metalband Lilim released their new album ‘𝔚𝔢𝔦𝔤𝔥𝔱𝔢𝔡 𝔊𝔥𝔬𝔰𝔱𝔰’ today and it is same intense stuff. ALL PROCEEDS GOING TOWARDS THE BLACK LEGAL ACTION CENTRE. Tune in now for some hardcore/thrash/just very heavy metal.

Skin Graft Records is an amazing label and released four very cool things today.
First is Ufo or Die wich is on my Japanese list too. The two remasterd tracks on the 7 inch ‘Shock Shoppers’ comes with a comic book too.
Brise-Glace release ‘In Sisters All And Felony (Single and Comic Book Set)’. Two remastered tracks.
US MAPLE release ‘Stuck (Single & Book Set)’. The 7″ vinyl release includes a clear vinyl single, a digital download of the songs and an instantly downloadable PDF booklet commemorating U.S. Maple’s first year as a band.

I have been a big worshipper of Gnod for a long time now, and It is not only the bonecrushing noiserock that our Gnod sometimes produces but I love Gnod for their experimentalism, their search for the divine sound in noise, ambient, tribal rythms, industrial anrd what not. Not every release is as easy as the other but now I can feel the hand of Gnod touching me with this new release. This sounds so perfect, they have collaborated with Jesus, eu, I mean João Pais Filipe to make this gorgeous new record called ‘Faca De Fogo’ wich we get a first extract from and sounds how divine it will sound. This track focusses mostly on tribal rythms and makes me hunger for so much more. Listen to it, it is Godlike. This will be released July third by Rocket Recordings and Lovers and Lollypops.
The alternative version, the research and development wing of GNOD consists of co-founders Paddy Shine and Chris Haslam. Again a sonic experiment with 2 tracks that are 20 minutes each with sounds that range from weird to eerie to psychedelic. Its not only weirdness though, you can find some heavy beats and agressive industrial sounds in there. So, yeah, check it out, It is Gnod
I asked my girlfriend (who hates noiserock and psych) to review this band, this is what she says: ‘What the hell is this? these are just factory noises, turn that off and do something with your life’.
The alternative version, the research and development wing of GNOD consists of co-founders Paddy Shine and Chris Haslam.
As a fan of weirdness and a fan of the brutal sound of Gnod this is something to check out. A very ambient and meditive exploration of sound.
Weirdness is alive and you can find it here. Check out VOl.3 by GNOD R&D on Sound of The Cobra.
I think i may have found my favorite label. Every release the God Unknown Label does is exellent and needs listening and buying. The label is filled to the brim with original noisy psych/experimental stuff. Check out their latest bands.
Rainbow Grave is one of those bands i discovered through God Unknown and God are they good. Slow sludgy riffs, distorted noises and and caveman vocals. The band featuring Nic Bullen (Napalm Death / Scorn), Johnny Doom (Doom), Nathan Warner (Bee Stung Lips) and James Commander is something every fan of the heavy should listen to and listen loud. The 7″ will be out October 5.
Sneers are duo from Berlin and make this intoxicating experimental noise with vocals that screech all the way to your soul. Their new LP “Heaven Will Rescue Us, We’re The Scum, We’re In The Sun” will be out September 21 on GOd Unknown Records.
Last year in March Manchester’s rock collective Gnod released their powerful noiserock album ‘JUST SAY NO TO THE PSYCHO RIGHT-WING CAPITALIST FASCIST INDUSTRIAL DEATH MACHINE’. Now, more than a year later, Gnod is back – and how! The band returns with ‘Chapel Perilous’, which will be released on May 4 on Rocket Recordings.
The opening track is called ‘Donovan’s Daughters’. This sonic beast of a track lasts 15 minutes. Hitting off with repetitive drums and bass lines, this track slowly evolves into a monster filled with anger and noise. The characteristically nasty vocals soon join in. The track builds up and grows stronger and darker every minute, ending in an apotheosis of brutal noise and screaming vocals. Exactly what we hoped for. The second track, ‘Europa’, starts off with that same ominous atmosphere you can feel throughout album. A track that slows down the pace and leaves you aching for more. ‘Voice From Nowhere’ pushes you even deeper. When the tribal drums die out, the next track, ‘A Body’, hits the listener with low, slow, rumbling noises from some unearthly abyss. Any attempt to escape is futile.
And then comes the inevitable wake-up call. The following track, ‘Uncle Frank Says Turn It Down’, brings the heavy riffs and tormented yelling we by now freakishly love and cherish. Gnod bids you farewell with ‘Chapel Perilous’, a vicious but welcomed blow to the nuts. This album is a kick in the face, a sonic attack, an album that leaves you exhausted.
Thank Gnod for new music! After the release of ‘JUST SAY NO TO THE PSYCHO RIGHT-WING CAPITALIST FASCIST INDUSTRIAL DEATH MACHINE‘ and the collab with Radar Men From The Moon as Temple Ov BBV they give us a new track called ‘Donovan’s Daughter’s’ wich is from the new album ‘Chapel Perilous‘ out on Rocket Recordings(May 4). The track is about 15 minutes in length and builds up to a masterpiece of heaviness. If this is Gnod’s new way then you can count me in.
There it is. The new album from Gnod. i don’t know what to say about this, it’s just special. i just keep it on repeat, it hurts my head and i love it. i hope i can stop listening to this at some point, i don’t think it’s healthy.
