New releases and more


This week I got mail from Alex of Kydoimos Records. 10 cassettes of our latest release Modern Culture Is Dead. You should get one as soon as possible, as the supply is limited.

We are currently doing recordings for two new releases:

  • A split called "Drum Tactics" with Girls Names out in early 2015 on Placenta Recordings as download only. The tracks for this split will be the last recordings done in the traditional Kusari Gama Kill style, as we have decided to concentrate on the more classic noisecore featured on Modern Culture Is Dead. Below is the video of the track Barking Orders from this split.

  • A new ep called "Beyond The Veil Of Flesh" continuing our exploration of true old school noisecore. Song titles so far are Asphalt Daughters and Secular Blackout. Most likely this will be released as a free download on Noisegrind Bastard Recordings in 2015.
  • And speaking of Noisegrind Bastard (my teeny tiny noise label), have a peek, there are 16 free releases of weird/noisy/aggressive music for download. https://noisegrindbastard.bandcamp.com
  • On a personal note, none of you might have wondered my name change from Blomfrø to Welling, I've been divorced and retaken my maiden name.
I hope you'll have a fun December, stay tuned for my yearly top 20 of the music I listened to the most in 2014, coming later this month.

Peace and love!

MODERN CULTURE IS A CASSETTE




MODERN CULTURE REPRESENTS INSOMNIATIC SERVITUDE TO MINDLESS CONSUMERISM, THE WORSHIP OF MEANINGLESS ICONS AND THE BLINDING NOTHINGNESS THAT DISTRACTS US FROM OUR SHACKLES - CULTURE IS NO LONGER INTELLECTUAL, CUSTOMARY NOR MANIFESTED IT IS A COMMODITY BOUGHT, SOLD, MARKETED AND EXPLOITED. MODERN CULTURE IS DEAD, AND HUMANITY WITH IT.

Video Time



Hello mofos.

We have made a few new videos, and I have forgotten to push them here. Above is a promo clip from our next release Modern Culture Is Dead, out soon on cassette and as free download. More information follows when things are ready. The songs in this video are united under the title Putrefaction Of The Mind.

Below is the very first Uddercock video Total Attack, a song from our upcoming split with Anti-Aesthetic.



Finally a short video from our concert at Loppen last month, filmed by Mr. Mads Kold:



Stay tuned for more grinding noise by The Kusari Gama Kill.

The Day After

Soooo this photo was taken yesterday at our gig at Loppen. We had tonnes of fun, and met some old friends and made a few new ones.

 We took a sexy pre-gig-jitters-selfie too, as you can see above.

The poster for the gig was a total wipeout Demon, here photographed at Dronning Louises Bro.

Thank you to all attending, stay tuned for more news soon.

THE SUN HAS FALLEN!!! NEW SPLIT OUT NOW

LIMBS BIN + KUSARI GAMA KILL + TACOMANIACX

THE SUN HAS FALLEN

Originally intended to be a split with the participating bands and the mighty Ultracide. However the Ultracide material never surfaced, so here we are a sexy threesome of noise and grind... Sorely missing Randall's fartsy grind. 

The title is a quote from the last message sent by the Chinese moon rover Yutu prior to malfunctioning. 

OUT NOW!!
