the first release of the year is the new 0cadavernamedAlison0 EP. Finally returning from many years of not knowing what the hell they wanted to play, now in 2012 we have "grindgaze". The combination of grindcore and shoegaze.
features most of the Monster projects (including the premier of two new projects: WRISTCUTRALLY, a highly Godflesh influenced project in which Monster collaborates with Marc from Gozer and Smile When You're Dead, the most lo-fi tribute to Nasum you'll ever hear. .. .oh, and +killthemanbecomethemonster+ is back.) plus 2 new Gozer songs, and tracks from Zombified Octopi, THC Eradicate and Josef Motley of Tortoiseshell Male.
a compilation we're putting out with many other bands besides ours (hopefully)
(deadline is Feb 13th to get songs in, and it comes out the 14th, right on this here site)
the new Kindergarten Hazing Ritual full length, which will be the 10th anniversary of Kindergarten Hazing Ritual.
.springofdrownedpanda. are writing, Eaglebauer Goes to Quiznos are writing, and Zombie Ninja Schmoe started something new.
Due to the revelation that EVERYBODY is doing 8-bit covers of metal songs, Samus's Pimp has been killed.
A new project is beginning, which uses the Sega Genesis sound card instead. We're moving to 16-bit, basically. (KHR have advanced this way too) If we cannot think of some kind of name involving fucked up shit happening to an iconic 16-bit character, we will take the name Marc from Gozer gave us (which is Grindstar Heroes).
No, Make a Change Kill a Brunette isn't quite a real thing yet. . . . . . .it could be though.
Next, Zombie Ninja Schmoe has been undead for a little while. Since the. . um. . .rising, there were a couple releases before the single "haken cruisin' dystopia" that went under the radar or didn't even happen.
TRACKS FROM THE GRAVE features the unreleased splits with Incentive and Evil Robot Ted. Also the rare track from the split with Silent Storm "daisuke ya mo burns this place to the ground". Also included, "cryp-walksy of a short cliff" the hilarious Cryptopsy spoof remix that was only heard on the myspace, The rejected Blam Honey remix and even some gems from the DJ Ninja Schmoe days (the split with Coathanger 84 and 3 other unknown classics that only the people from the "music that kicks rocks" days will remember)
