Street Sects
Street Sects
Street Sects are a new unit from Austin who don't use any guitars but create rhythmic assaults with only samplers. Their digital decadence and manipulation of inhuman drum patterns also recall Japanese breakcore/death metal fusion . Futuristic and dystopian at the same time, this is an exciting new direction for heavy music.

"Street Sects vocalist Leo Ashline has turned a lifetime of distress, addiction and violence into an extreme-music triumph. Since 2013, he has collaborated with multi-instrumentalist Shaun Ringsmuth to create nightmarish noise, punk and industrial punchouts, playing strobing, molten shows around Austin. On their debut LP End Position – a title inspired by a lyric from Bonnie "Prince" Billy's "I See a Darkness" – more subtle layers reveal themselves. Amid the anarchy are moments of noir storytelling, black humor and satisfying breakdowns between pummelings." - Rolling Stone
Planning For Burial
Planning For Burial
"Remember Explosions in the Sky's most recent album, All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone, and how it was dreary for a band known for uplifting songs? Planning for Burial is that, amplified by a million. Piano and organ are peppered in here and there, and when they're used, you're in for some real fucking funeral music. These elements most stand out during Leaving's closer and title track, which is a little over 13 minutes of unadulterated, melancholic drone. Lustmord may take you to the depths of hell, but Planning for Burial, with this track, take you into cold space, hovering over all that once was." – Crustcake

"Music that you'll need to play loud. Extremely loud. Superb riffs all the way. For fans of Mamiffer, The Spheres and A Whisper In The Noise." – The Siren Sound
"Leaving is quite possibly the most amazing record ever to mix shoegaze, metal, doom, drone, and everything beautifully badass. Seriously epic songs that fill your heart with joy and make your ears fucking bleed. Crank this motherfucker up and let the bliss wash over you while you bang your head." – Anti-Gravity Bunny

"Planning For Burial bring together drone and shoegaze, this time with little splashes of doom metal and black metal. Bringing to mind Jesu, Pyramids & Nadja and My Bloody Valentine as well as the dreariness of Explosions In The Sky's All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone, this album is, much like HANL's perfect Deathconsciousness, overflowing with emotion, almost to the point of being exhausting. I very strongly recommend this album, because it is definitely one of my favorite releases this year." - Shock Mountain
