“First up is the debut release from Boston’s most hated; ISLAM85! Throw some fed-the-fuck-up Noothgrush inspired Powerviolence into a blender with spastic-barking-lazy-pothead-vocals, let it dry in a glass baking pan, cut it with some harsh as fuck grindsilence, mix in a little misanthropic-stoner-doom smoke and enjoy! Offended? GOOD!”
go download our record for free, or if youre feeling generous you could buy the floppy disk. its hand painted, hand numbered, limited, you get the immediate download of the record, and a bunch of stickers and depending on my mood at the time (and my supplies), probably an 11x17 poster of the cover “art”. for that click the “woop” link on the top of the page.
Legit, our cassette should be out in a week or 2. We have a split 7” coming out with the band venkman from Oakland soon. We may also be doing 3 days with The Kruds from TX when they come through Boston.
Islam85 is an upcoming powerviolence outfit from Boston that will crack your skull wide open! These guys play with brute force and at violent, rapid speeds, creating walls of feed-back drenched riffs, fuzzed-out bass, spazzy drum parts and intensely brutal dual vocals. Their demo cassette is dropping real soon on Third Eye Grind Records so look out for that, but in the meantime, snag this behemoth below. Dig!
4 piece Sludge-Violence outta Boston. 2 singers, 1 guitarist, 1 drummer, all fuck you. ex-members of: Colin Of Arabia, Intheshit, Sepuku, Terminally Your Aborted Ghost, Lowlife (Providence), Then Came The Plague, and other dumb bands.
This is a “review” of our set by Rev Aaron (Return To The Pit) Islam85: I was expecting their set to be comically short, it really wasn’t. Infest-like with slow sludgey parts. At some points one of the vocalist kind of reminded me of Mike Mccarthy. I think that was during the last song. Lots of people dancing for their set.
