"We have a ton of music ready to record, and we're touring Europe in November!" Nux Vomica drummer tells Noisecreep excitedly. The Portland, Ore.-based experimental melodic death/crust punk band have been keeping
Primitive death metal bruisers Sanguis Imperem don't immediately strike you as the most tech-savvy group of dudes. With their leather, spikes, long hair and ubiquitous sunglasses, they'd look more at home in a medieval torture chamber than in front of a computer screen, but, according to guitarist R.S., "If it wasn't for myspace we probably would not be here right now!"
As a band, Sanguis Imperem are the definition of uncompromising. Formed nearly five years ago in the soulless wasteland of Southern California and as uncommercial as they come (the thought of hearing a track like 'Humanity's Dirge' on even Headbanger's Ball elicits a chuckle), the death metal tyrants have busied themselves spreading the disease far and wide.

Portland-based melodic death/crust punk genre-manglers Nux Vomica have gotten a lot of grief for their newer material. In the basement-bred, anti-everything crust punk community, changing up your sound or allowing melody to creep into your compositions raises a red flag.
The band's roots are planted firmly in the upper crust, but the
For Southern California death metal mercenaries Sanguis Imperem, it's not always about being brutal. Well, a lot of the time it is, as evidenced by their positively bestial, knuckle-dragging, crypt-robbing take on old-school death metal -- but there's more to this leather-clad quintet than meets the ear.
"We want to trample people under the feet of Caesar's legions," snarls guitarist R.S. "W
Portland-via-Baltimore crust collective Nux Vomica are a strange beast. Their sound draws from a variety of genres -- elements of crust punk, melodic death metal, black metal, doom and post-rock can are swirled together carefully, artfully and, at times, with reckless abandon. Zacrilege told Noisecreep that they've "been described as 'post d-beat,' 'art c
American doom legends Yob are currently stranded in the Netherlands and are making the best of a terrible situation by playing a handful of very special shows around Western Europe. The volcanic eruption of Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland this past Wed
Recent Earache signees Wormrot have a lot to live up to. Hailed as both a much-needed return to the label's grinding roots and the heirs to now-defunct but always pissed Texan grind horde Insect Warfare's filth-encrusted throne, the grindfreaks behind 'Abuse' have more than proven themselves, releasing scores of demos and LPs on local DY labels and spreading their disease as far past the Singapore borders as possible.
Their extreme noise terror reached the ears of Earache head honcho Digby Pearson, and the rest is histo
Mutilation Rites not only boast some of the coldest, most evil riffs that New York City has to offer -- they're also fortunate to count one Michael Dimmitt amongst their ranks. Besides slinging the axe in Mutilation Rites and Rabia, and having been a part
