Postman - S-T (2014) O.C., California

                         Alright, I dowloaded this from bandcamp a few months back, and
                         it frankly freakin' stunted my growth ! :)
                         This one takes me back to the early days of powerviolence, that
                         in your face Infest sound or some may call it west coast powerviolence
                         Whatever you want to call it, i'm calling this my number 1 favorite
                         release of 2014 !!!!!
                         If any of you know me, and alot of you do, you know I hold
                         powerviolence very near and dear to my heart ! :)
                         This one is a masterpiece in my opinion, one of the best pv releases
                         in years !
                         Not that I don't love all you other pv bands that are my Brother's,
                         there are many masterpieces in the last few years from bands all
                         over the planet. But this release is definitely up there in my book !!!!!
                         Postman features Chris Layhee from Tension on guitar/vocals, and
                         Blake Andreas from Chainsaw Squid on drums/back-up vocals.
                         Took me a bit to edit this one. I just realized they put lyrics up, so
                         I finished it earlier today.
                         I believe this is either already out, or coming out on Opaqus Records.
                         I e-mailed these guys, and Chris gave me the go ahead to post on here.
                         This will rip your face off, so I highly recommend it !!!!!

Blackball - Live @ Prisma Video, Raleigh-NC 3-1-2015 (North Carolina/Virginia)

           Hey there everyone ! It's been a while... :)
           Haven't been feeling 100% this year, and due to that, this is my first post
           of 2015.
           So anyhow, gotta get myself up and running here, need to put some pep
           in my step ! :)
           This a new band that will be on my Thrash Up My Ass! Vol. 2 comp,
           which will hopefully be out by this summer !
           The band is made up of my friend David Gallagher (Vacant Planet, Prosthesis)
           on guitar, Jeff Young (Stripmines, Skemata, Mercy Killings, Prosthesis) on
           guitar, Christophe Bequet (Abuse.) on bass, Anthony Williams (Future Binds,
           Pure Scum, Bandages) on drums, and Ericka Kingston (Burn Ward, Crooked
           Teeth) on vocals.
           Funny enough, I still haven't met Ericka yet, but her other band Crooked Teeth
           was on the first Thrash Up My Ass! comp which came out in 2010.
           Hash from Crooked Teeth/Unholy Thoughts actually was one one I contacted
           to get Crooked Teeth for the first comp.
           But it's a small world that I meet up with another of Ericka's bands for Thash
           Up My Ass! Vol. 2 :)
           Anyhow, enough about that, this is a Live set from less than a week ago to
           get you primed up for their Demo which should be out real soon here !
           David just sent me this link yesterday for all to check out, cool blog with
           more on this awesome new band !
           No track list yet, but Demo will be out soon folks, be patient ! :)
           Ok, no more waiting, with no further anticipation needed, I give you the
           fueled up & explosive new band, Blackball !!!!!
