Teen Suicide – “Bonus EP”
Another sick RECORD OF THE WEEK blog to kick your weekend off with!!
TEEN SUICIDE’S latest “Bonus EP” is a concise collection of songs which were only previously available via Dropbox links from the band’s Facebook page. Salvaged from the internet abyss between thinkpieces on Marilyn Manson’s ribcage and pictures of Omar from The Wire, “Bonus EP’s” six tracks are as genre-defying as their latest twenty six track swansong LP.

———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————
IAM8BIT, MICROSOFT STUDIOS and REMEDY have teamed up to bring you the futuristic and heart pounding score from QUANTUM BREAK on vinyl! The soundtrack explodes with kinetic beats from acclaimed composer, PETRI ALANKO (Alan Wake, Imaginaerum – The Movie). The range of the sound is impressive – from melodic symphony and to futuristic intensity, packing a lot of scope into a single disc. Featuring a laser cut jacket that exposes the innersleeve, IAM8BIT are always pushing the envelope of creativity.
TEARS RUN RINGS is a long distance relationship. Formerly in a 90’s indipop band and having formed a label, now they’re scattered across the west coast. Recording in 3 separate studios and transferring tracks back and forth until they are perfect. With over six years in the making, ‘In Surges’, is finally available through DEEP SPACE RECORDINGS!
New York City’s BLACK ANVIL return with “As Was”, the staggering 50-minute follow-up to 2014’s “Hail Death”. Atmospheric and melodic without relenting on any of the ferocity BLACK ANVIL have always been known for, “As Was” seamlessly weaves through eight monumental passages of extreme metal art. Coming at you from RELAPSE RECORDS, the dominating force keeping metal in your face!
IAM8BIT teamed up with DREW WISE to help bring TOBY FOX’s original score to one the the most acclaimed RPGs in recent history, UNDERTALE! The score accentuates the odyssey of UNDERTALE beautifully – a nostalgic, chip-riffed plummet down a 16-bit rabbit hole. The album art lovingly explores the lore of UNDERTALE further, featuring hundreds of the game’s characters – both on the heart-shaped cover collage and the interior gatefold dance party. The “Pacifist Blue” and “Genocide Red” colored vinyl is a nice *wink* to fans. Deluxe versions also receive the bonus ‘Annoying Dog’ Silkscreened 7” record as well!
FLOATING GOAT is a Hard Rock/Stoner Metal power trio out of San Francisco. Having two self released albums going back to 2001, the band has returned with a new double 12” vinyl offering of earth scorching full-on heaviness. “Spawn of Poseidon” and “Suburban Anxiety” are two separate albums packaged together as one release. Each side of the gatefold jacket is a separate record with it’s respective artwork and colored vinyl, Spawn of Poseidon a stunning black and green splatter, and Suburban Anxiety solid white.
Enter the domain of MITHRAS, one of the UK’s most uncompromising and extreme bands to date. Beginning their career in 1998, they have been creating compositions with celestial atmospherics, the end result is a take on death metal that is original to the fullest degree. A sonic aesthetic that is truly other-dimensional, and submerges the listener into a bleak void of blast beats, savage frequencies and shattering vocal expulsions. Hit up their forward thinking and deputed to boundary pushing label WILLOWTIP for more info!
