Mar

https://m-a-r.bandcamp.com/

The Providence, Rhode Island duo hurtle themselves into waves of apocalyptic sludge and dire noise with zero regard for their own safety; the riffs come fitfully, lurching and pulling like a rabid dog straining at his leash, as vocalist Kay Belardinelli exorcises her demons in real time, gasping for air and calling down thunder. The lyrics tackle the pain and power of recovery and trauma, imbuing the album's aggrieved, menacing character with a deeply personal bent that only deepens its sense of overwhelming darkness.

Deacon Bill

https://deaconbillpunx.bandcamp.com/

Weirdo-schizo-thrash-punks that have just enough pop sensibility to hook you in and then melt your face off. Where Deacon Bill originates from is unclear; some say LA, others claim Lowell, MA, and yet another may say they reside in Brooklyn. One thing is clear: their sound is as eclectic as their origin stories. Take a plunge into the Intelligent Toilet.

Ted's Dead

https://tedsdead.bandcamp.com/

Ted's Dead's music plays on contrasts; playful lyrics give way to political tirades and danceable verses crumble into pummeling breakdowns. Through battered skins, shattered sticks, minor sins and broken picks Ted's Dead spread the gospell of punk rock, do-it-yourself, and civil disobedience.

Shit City

Sounds like if Heavy Medical had a member of Drums Like Machine guns in it.

Part Filth

https://soundcloud.com/part-filth

Not rising out of, but diving into the ashes of post-rock / slowcore cult classic new jersey traditions isaac hurt, part filth brings a similar melancholy, but with a new energy and occassional ire. This is epic in scope. All of humanity came together to make part filth happen. Forests were clear cut to master hone the evolution of the modern luthier and build their instruments. Great paths were cleared, trodden and eventually paved so that they could get to practice. Fossil fuels purged from the ground, heating the whole globe so that vehicles to transport gear would be made available to them. Coal power showered us all with acid rain and nuclear plants threaten the very structure of our genetic material so that their amplifiers can pump out wave after wave of high watt alienation. Whole classes, the proles and the bourgeois, paired off and went to war over social relations. Neighbor against neighbor, labor against capital. In short, the industrial revolution has raped the earth and forced billions into the bondage and misery of wage slavery so that it could reach its ultimate apex: Part Filth, and their art damaged, often improvised independent rock, are just a part of the noise waving itself constantly away never ending looking forward to death.
