Sadi Tells You How He Really Feels About Dubstep Moshcore by orlandooom407

**Notes from Oates – Last week Stuff You Will Hate introduced us all to ‘dubstep moshcore’. Where did it begin you ask? Where else does every horrible headline in the news originate these days? Florida. Sadi Thakur felt the need to share his thoughts about Exotype with the lot of you. Finally, I wish I could’ve shared pictures of the Facebook wall posts that inspired this, but I think in the best interest of the band’s dignity (lol) their member’s comments are best left in the trash. Enjoy!

Metal: always a horrible genre to be infatuated with. Especially when you’re trying to promote your heavy as fuck band. It’s bullshit. Labeling your band into any genre is kinda like looking at your buddy’s dick for warts after he fucked some bar slut he took home. You know, that night when he shouldn’t have driven home. You do it, but with a bit of a cringe. But to do it correctly blatantly takes either a lot of balls or no brains. Exotype has both.

I don’t know how to accurately review music, but with this band it isn’t a problem. They lure you in with their banner parading on sounding similar to Linkin Park and Skrillex. Time to let out the sigh of relief because we both know you were looking for a band that combined both. They somehow have an ungodly amount of production and sound like a metalcore band with dub step wobbles. If you are the kind of person still gelling your hair into spikes and rocking a button up shirt with flames covering it, you will be pumping your fist and headbanging your molly riddled brain into the closest Hot Topic. There, you can tell all your friends  buying hello kitty studs for their belly button that they need to check out the newfound messiah of wicked tunes: Exotype.

I watched the music video for their song Synthetics. I realized that popular rock music had bequeathed a bastard dumpster baby afflicted with a few too many chromosomes. I’m assuming this review will not deter you from listening and enjoying this music because you obviously don’t know how to read or use your brain for earnest analytical processes. I am not a proper resource for good music, I do not have a vast well of hip underground bands to reference nor do I know of quintessential bands that you have to listen to. I have been to a Skrillex show, and I get why he’s popular. There are hot girls hopped up on amphetamines and ecstasy. And they’re often dressed like fairies. He has lights to entertain the doped masses, and loud as fuck bass that massages any set of tender genitals to orgasm. His music, however is sub par. So unless your show has that, I’m more concerned about fucking girls and doing drugs at shows that kick ass. Fuck music.

Swamp Abyss Sorcery Fest – Saturday 10/13 @ BACKBOOTH by orlandooom407

Salutations readers. Our inactivity ends today. I went over to the fuse box this morning, flipped the switch and proceeded to breath in the gaseous dusty internet tumbling through the air. Not only has the blog been resuscitated, but we plan to begin hosting shows in Central Florida once again starting in December. I think all ya’ll will find yourselves presently surprised at the lineup for our comeback show.

But, before we get ahead of ourselves here’s a much more immediate means to satisfy the heavy appetite. This year, and month in particular, have been rife with new releases from the likes of big leaguers like Converge, Trash Talk and even those sci-fi dorks Between the Buried and Me. I’ve had the pleasure of attending three delicious festivals myself: Maryland Deathfest X, 305 Fest and Scion Rock Fest 2012. If you buy all this apocalypse garbage I’d say this year would qualify as a grand finale for any heavy enthusiast. Now, Orlando, yet again, gets to throw in to this gargantuan pile thanks to Ninety Proof Productions. Hopefully this next image jogs some memories:

If you haven’t snagged this yet, do your ears the favor. This compilation offers tracks from the best in Floridian extreme metal bar none. While the upcoming fest doesn’t feature every single band included there’s inarguable representation. Fast, slow, you name it you’ll hear it. Orlando’s representation includes the blackened humidity of Fire In The Cave, the tombstone ridden deathdoom hypnosis of Druid Lord and the apocalyptic doom country anthems of Hollow Leg. The Miami hat trick of Shroud Eater, Holly Hunt, and Orbweaver stand to stake their claim as our unconditionally loved cousins of the glades. Don’t forget St. Petersburg and Gainesville either, represented by the drunken metal punks flyingsnakes and midnight (pun intended) riders Hot Graves. Click the flier above for more details and some gut busting comments.

Now, one last order of business. We are actively accepting sample submissions for writers who want to contribute. If that sounds like you please contact Orlandooom407@gmail.com for more details.

Don’t forget you can always keep up with us on FACESPACE and TWATTER (@Orlandooom).

See ya’ll Saturday.

Quiet Clouds – Demo 2012 by orlandooom407

Thanks to everyone on [social media name here] sending me new music this afternoon! This (post) math rock morsel features David Settle of the unfortunately defunct stoner metal trio Dickkicker. Quiet Clouds doesn’t carry the stinging fuzz of DK, but conversely erects a serene scene rife with delicate, yet heartfelt, guitar licks. I really enjoy how much their drummer, who’s name escapes me, torments the bell of his ride; the ringing germinates an astounding accentuation. Vocally expect digestible harmonies in the vain of Dinosaur Jr. or Built to Spill.  Don’t take this the wrong way: this band has something for everyone. Don’t expect this record to tear the hinges off your door. QC seeks to usher you quietly through the clouds. Can’t wait to scope these gentlemen out live. The demo’s another freebie, you know the drill.

Like Quiet Clouds on Facebook.

Swamp Abyss Sorcery – A Guide to Floridian Metal Circa 2012 by orlandooom407

I sincerely apologize for the lack of updates over the past few days. Combined with sending this grotesque chimeric bastard’s likeness to many of the blogs and forums that I frequent I’ve been heavily preoccupied by life, Fire in the Cave writing sessions and other writing projects. His name is THROMBIBULOUS and he exemplifies what happens when Rick Scott reveals his true form, except well, his flamingo penis is probably significantly smaller. He’s the newest mascot for several of us Florida people who decided to compile our songs together for this FREE COMPILATION entitled Swamp Abyss Sorcery. Satanik Recordings and HOT GRAVES compiled and released this free digital compilation on Valentine’s Day equipped with lore and artwork by Jean Saiz:

To help consolidate all necessary free time for the sake of enjoying the music I’m going to provide a series of one sentence matter of fact explanations of each band:

Miami:

Shroud EaterA  malevolent and equivocally dissonant stoner metal trio armed with a PhD in savagery.

Holly Hunt – Armageddon flavored instrumental drone doom duo with an enamoring gazey trim.

Orbweaver – Deranged psychedelic death metal hurdling through space at speeds that make The Milennium Falcon look like your little sister’s moped.

Orlando:

Druid Lord – Tomb smashing death-doom quartet smelt together by ancient witchery and venomous rhythms.

Fire in the CaveI don’t critique my own band. Grim Kim Kelly did though.

Tampa / St.Petersburg:

flyingsnakes -Explosive blackened crust that eviscerates boundaries between metallic and anarchic.

FatalUnabashed thrash that will trash your entire hash stash to fuel their toxic lashed dash.

Party Time – Hyper active hardcore punk in less than two minutes or your punishment’s free.

Jacksonville / Gainesville:

Hollow Leg – Ravenous Floridian cult classic doom quartet that’ll have you saying “WHAT?!” for days.

Extremely Rotten – Red herring gore grind brutality with vocal tones so low that if plumbers had spidey sense it would violently tingle against the subconscious.

HOT GRAVES – Menacing blackened thrash burning a glorious Midnight inspired homage straight through your mind’s eye.

Just Another Shitstorm Set by orlandooom407

Chip Shomburg does it again with another Shitstorm set from Miami, Florida. I was going to post this over the weekend but a combination of Football celebration, and a mega psychedelic encounter with an amphibious rhinoceros deterred my itinerary. I was only nearly able to escape back to work this morning. Article coming after an early lunch.
