Since I have just tidied up my copies of Terrorizer and got them in chronological order, it now gives me a chance to have a look at the most recent issue. I see a UK band I am not familiar with, October File, getting an 8 for there new album Our Souls To You. So I check it out on Spotify http://open.spotify.com/album/6xP92cnaLvvXFg1AJ0t2yb
Methinks it’s rather good.
- Corporate Evasion
- Eau Du war
- Our Souls To You (Part 1)
- A Public Display Of Anger
- Love is (A Warm AK47)
- Our Souls To You
The release looks like it is available as 2 disks, one features the above tracks mixed by John Mitchel the other with the tracks (minus track 11) mixed by Justin Broaderick.
Here is the promo video for Another Day, taken from the previous album, Holy Armour From The Jaws Of God.

Today I was thinking about the heaviness of Electric Wizard’s Dopethrone and was then so minded to construct a list of albums by bands that are similarly crushing in their heaviness. Here is my list of albums:
- Sleep – Dopesmoker
- Acid King – Zoroaster
- Ramesses – Misanthropic Alchemy
- Weedeater – God Luck and Good Speed
- Bongzilla – Gateway
- Ufomammut – Snailking
- Goatsnake – Goatsnake 1
- Church Of Misery – Master Of Brutality
- OM – Earth Awakening
- Reverend Bizarre – Harbinger Of Metal
Way back in 2007 Radiohead created a great debate with their decision to release “In Rainbows” under a pay-what-you-want policy. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/7037219.stm
Other bands have tried variations on this theme and in some cases simply made an album simply free to download.
Well, one label that has also gone with the pay-what-you-want approach is the Canadian based Moshpit Tragedy Records.
Specialising in Punk, Metal, Crust and Sludge the label doesn’t sell records or CD’s anymore, but allows people to download releases from their website and decide on how much they should pay. The label sees itself as a response to fans and artists being ripped off and abused by records companies over the years.
The latest label release is Burnt Cross’ “The Earth Dies Screaming”
Label founder, Rayny Forster, is featured in the yet to be released record industry documentary ‘Behind The Suit And Tie’.
