Buckle up! Are you ready for some of the filthiest, snottiest, relentless and downright loud crossover thrash this side of early 80s Metallica, Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies? Then look no further, as Chi-town’s Oozing Wound are here to supercharge the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
Hyperbole aside, Oozing Wound’s stoner-tinged, good-humored thrash metal has earned them praise from Terrorizer, Metal Hammer and Decibel among others, as the band’s debut full-length, Retrash (clocking in at just over thirty minutes), is a raucous, volatile, obnoxious, bulldozing affair, which heaves and stomps through righteous thrash with an AmRep noise rock vibe, too!
Oozing Wound are currently set to release Earth Suck, the explosive follow-up to Retrash, on October 20th in Europe via Thrill Jockey. Earth Suck’s collection of destructive trash, teetering on the knife edge of control and collapse, will come crashing through the gates with razor-sharp riffage and sonic bolts of electricity, only to turn Roadburn into a basement circle pit frenzy!
Get High. F*ck. Destroy! Welcome Oozing Wound, motherf*ckers.
Roadburn Festival 2015 will run for four days from Thursday, April 9 to Sunday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Lovingly pinched from Echoes And Dust: Originally released in 2007, White Hills second album Glitter Glamour Atrocity was a limited release affair of about 500 copies and has long since become something of a collectors item for fans. It is with fortuitous timing and a capitalisation on the current cult […]

Lovingly pinched from Echoes And Dust: Are you a fellow with a lot of hair on your head and / or face? Do the following things make your heavy heart lift with joy: mosh-pits, fast drums, devil horns, Jägermeister, Metalocalypse, fuzzy bunnies, rainbows? If the answer is a cookie-monster-growled “Y[örrrrrrrrr]ES” […]

Lovingly pinched from Soundblab: White Hills have been on a seemingly never-ending roll for the last few years, releasing album-after-album of explosive modern psychedelia. 2011s HP-1 was a sprawling, monolithic masterpiece, while last year’s Frying on This Rock was a technicolour blast of motorik beats and driving psych-rock. So You […]

Lovingly pinched from The 405 Reviews: Raised in the warm heart of Africa, Bristolian Simon Price – famous for being the guitarist of psych titans, The Heads – is set to release his second full-length effort under his kandodo sobriquet (named after an 80s Malawian supermarket). He regards his instrumental sounds […]

Lovingly pinched from Pitchfork: Who will lay claim to You’ve Always Meant So Much to Me, the second proper album from Chicago sound art project Wrekmeister Harmonies? During its sole, 38-minute track, the dozen-member ensemble led by J.R. Robinson builds from asymptotic silence into space-age electroacoustic drone, and from browbeating […]

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Barn Owl, have, over the process of a few albums, mutated from an organically spiritual drone machine, beloved of more contemplative weedians, into something which could be called ‘dark ambient’ although that label might be fraught with associations of formless, pointless background music. For […]

Lovingly pinched from Dusted Magazine: Dave Heumann’s Arbouretum is arguably the best of the millennial classic rock bands, a guitar-fuzzed powerhouse that follows Neil Young’s trampled trail, bending folk and country into surreal shapes through the sheer force of volume and distortion. Coming Out of the Fog is Arbouretum’s fifth […]

Praise for Eternal Tapestry‘s A World Out Of Time from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: We may have mentioned it before, but it seems like Thrill Jockey is quickly establishing itself as an indie powerhouse. Not that they weren’t already, but recently, they’ve been taking on band after amazing band, loads of […]

Lovingly pinched from BBC Music: As slow-motion psych maestros Barn Owl, San Franciscans Evan Caminiti and Jon Porras craft sounds akin to a Martian spaghetti western, noxious vapours snaking alien-like around desolate desert twangs. Vibes are generally ominous, recalling the doom-laden Americana of the increasingly Ennio Morricone-obsessed Earth, or even […]
