Various - Fiends In Low Places Tape
(We've Got) Fiends In Low Places: Heavy Vibes Internationale is a gnarled calling card from 15 bands bashing away in the international heavy underground. Over 50 minutes long with 15 exclusive tracks of noisy rock, sludge, doom, punk, hardcore, you-name-it from champions of the underground in North and South America, Europe, Australia, and Japan making stark, aggressive, noise-laden tunes worked over with smarts and wicked humor, an international summit of heavy bands operating outside convention.
Featuring Arabrot, Bastard Of The Skies, Batpiss, Cyberne, Dead, Elephant Rifle, The Great Sabatini, Health Problems, Hombre Malo, Meadows, Moe, Same Sex Dictator, Teeph, Throat and Timekiller. It's a wild trip through twisted noise rock, bludgeoning sludge, psychotic metal, blackened hardcore, and damaged punk, each act's warped worldview in full effect. Comforting or discomforting, this comp at least affirms we're not the only ones this fucked up. In an age when many are looking back with nostalgia for the lost and forgotten weirdo bands of yesteryear, it's good to know we can find pigfucking goodness all around the world right now and no doubt for years to come.
