We’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Canadian nuclear wasteland raw hardcore noise-punk incursors Last Agony to issue their pulverizing debut album “The Imminent Slaughter”, arriving in early May 2021.
An introductory taste of the savage album has been provided by notorious underground blog No Echo, who premiered the song “Diabolism” remarking that “the Toronto-based outfit specializes in a particular strain of raw-as-fuck hardcore punk they’ve mastered by studying the greats, namely bands like Anti Cimex, Extreme Noise Terror, and Lärm.“ – you can read the full feature and checkout the track HERE.
On “The Imminent Slaughter” Last Agony let loose all their most negative and harrowing visions of a polluted, dark and violent world, birthing one of the most unnerving and lawless strains of primitive aural chaos to have been vomited from the North American punk scene this year. In the war-torn twenty minutes of weaponized aural mayhem, Last Agony put on display an unrivaled sonic assault of primitive cruelty and raw hostility, thrusting influences ranging from European early heavy punk bastions like Doom, Anti-Cimex and Electro Hippies, to Japanese d-beat noise deviants in the vein of Gauze and Death Side, all the way to primitive grindcore vanguards like Repulsion, Extreme Noise Terror, early Napalm Death and Terrorizer into a blown out and noise-corroded terrorscape of total anarchy and chaos. If you like it fast, loud, raw, visceral and lawless, search no further, because Last Agony have brought us one of the most nerve-shattering and apocalyptic storms of unhinged and primordial punk-metal wrath that you will hear all year.
“The Imminent Slaughter” is slated for an official release on May 7 2021 on vinyl, cassette tape and digital formats, all now pre-ordeable on our Bandcamp and webshop.
