Challenging enough for the sludge hardcore veterans, but inviting enough to hook a few crazy noise experimentalists, FULL OF HELL is one of my favorite live bands of the last couple of years. Bleding their uncompromising attitude with the craziness and intensity of MERZBOW, their collaborative effort simply mist be well textured and incredibly demanding. Judging by this new track, I imagine it can be atmospheric as hell, yet very raw and pummeling listening experience.

Notorious experimental noise grind/hardcore outfit FULL OF HELL have completed work on their new full-length album “Full Of Hell & Merzbow”.
As the album title suggests, the new FULL OF HELL album sees the band collaborate with the legendary godfather of noise Masami Akita (aka MERZBOW) to create their most aesthetically potent, vicious, and most brutal offering yet. Where Masami’s noise creations become incorporated within FULL OF HELL’s song structures, this time the band taking their experimentation, noise, and violence towards a new artistic level that goes beyond anything in their already-expansive repertoire previous. Sonically, “Full Of Hell & Merzbow” will present itself as one of the most notable releases of the year that will cross itself over within the genres of grind/hardcore, power violence, noise, and experimental music.
Also exclusive to the CD version of the album only, “Full Of Hell & Merzbow” will present itself as a 2xCD package that will come with a secondary disc entitled “Sister Fawn”. Whereas on “Full Of Hell & Merzbow” sees the band incorporate Merzbow’s noise segments into their music, the “Sister Fawn” disc presents itself as an extension of the album which sees Merzbow’s noise segments become the main focus where FULL OF HELL vocalist Dylan Walker and guitarist Spencer Hazard work their arrangements around Merzbow’s dominant sound picture. Nonetheless, “Sister Fawn” is an extension which will make the “Full Of Hell & Merzbow” listening experience that much more encompassing and intense.
To officially be released on 2xCD and digital formats on Nov 25th (there will be a special pre-order set for early Oct) and with the vinyl edition(s) coming just after via A389 and Stab/Repeat respectively, tracklisting for “Full Of Hell & Merzbow” goes as follows:
