HARMONIC TREMORS #1

My name is Miles.

Upon me, has been bestowed the honour of my own weekly post, in the form of this, Harmonic Tremors.

While Matthew regales you with the latest indie-rock buzz, and while Camilla does the same except with more pictures of cats sleeping, I intend to devote my post solely to the promotion of all things Metal/Hardcore/Punk/Drone/Noise.

So, let's get to it.

FIGHT AMP - HUNGRY FOR NOTHING

Solid effort from this New Jersey powerhouse. They've gleaned much from their Louisville brethren, safe to say Charmer sits proudly among the scratched cd's underneath the seats in their tour van. But they are more than a Breather clone, they steal equally from the classic-rock play book. Not afraid to just sit down on something and riff for the sake of riffing. Positive pitchfork review, that goes much more in-depth than I. Imagine a Sabbath-obsessed Knut, or Young Widows drunk at a Hope Conspiracy show.

No doubt more touring and more exposure for this band, hopefully they make it up to our frozen tundra. Easily one of the best of this still young 2008.

Thanks Matthew,
Oh I know all about the Cave-In clan, I love all their side-projects.
Boston breeds thought-provoking heavy music.
Zozo 4 life,
