Introducing Post-Hardcore Act: DEPTHS.

Dark and brooding. Angry and loud. Belgium’s DEPTHS. are everything you’re looking for in a post-hardcore band, and their new EP “Until Sleep Narrows My Conscious Mind” is every bit as complicated and epic as its name implies. I must admit, I wasn’t too familiar with these guys until this very moment but as I write this on a foggy fall morning in the Southern Hemisphere they’re a very welcome new discovery. Discover them yourself below.

Short/Fast/Loud: Agador Spartacus – “Agastonishing”

Here at Dying Scene, we’ve been talking a lot behind the scenes about how to maximize our content—not only covering more, but covering better. We’ll be making some changes to our output in the coming months, and the end goal will be to provide our writers with more opportunities to write in-depth reviews, editorials, and interviews. Part of this is adapting our review format—there is simply too much out there to cover and full-length reviews just aren’t time effective. That doesn’t mean we’re getting rid of longform reviews (we’d rather die), only that when we do them, we’ll be investing more in them and treating them as we would a feature. For the rest, we want to cover the multitude of bands that are working hard out there but might get squashed under the great wheel of the album submissions game. Short-form reviews—as short and loud as punk itself—will be a way for us to cover more while still providing honest, dependable feedback. Let us know what you think of the new format, we plan to roll out capsule reviews as they accumulate from here on out.

I’m always on the lookout for rhythmic, melodic post-hardcore to make a comeback. You know what I’m talking about. Stuff that resides somewhere between Fugazi, NoMeansNo, Hot Water Music, and At the Drive-In. Aggressive, angular, creative, and singable.

Agador Spartacus hail from Hamburg, Germany and have come out swinging with the sort of EP that can’t help but turn heads. These guys are killing it with twisty, riffy tracks of guitar-centric post-hardcore that aren’t afraid of big choruses and big atmosphere. Agastonishing is a gun-metal cool release that deserves to be dug up from under the radar. 

“Living Slow/Dying Hard” is fueled with stuttering guitars that switch gears to fuzzed out Snapcase riffs in the blink of an eye, its chorus providing a primal scream-along in the form of its title. “My Beautiful Mind” is another absolute banger, with perhaps the catchiest hook of the album. But this is picking glints from a bucket of gold, Agastonishing is an impressive EP that hooks from the start and then never stops hooking.

Check out: “Living Slow/Dying Hard,” “Tetris”

S-E-R-V-I-C-E (post-punk) release live video for “Who Are You Anyway?”

If you have ever seen a live video of a band, you’ve pretty much seen them all. A band performing somewhere in a dive, bad lightning, shot in black-and-white and only one camera. This video from S-E-R-V-I-C-E for their track “Who Are You Anyway?” is anything but that. It’s beautifully shot and features a great post-punk song with dirty guitars, megaphones and weird noises!

DS Exclusive: Italian HC band NOFU stream new EP, “Qui Ed Ora”

When I heard that my favorite Italian hardcore band, NOFU, was putting out new music, I jumped at the opportunity for an exclusive. I hopped on messenger and started up a chat and before you know it, I was beneficiary and custodian to exclusive content beholden to no one but myself. (and maybe a few of the band’s buds and whatnot) The weight of badassery fell squalidly on my shoulders, alone. Holy crap! What was I gonna’ write?

I first got the chance to see NOFU last year on their Thrashin’ the Bible Belt Tour, at my favorite local punk dive, and was absolutely blown away. The lead singer, Emanuele, was like seven feet, goddamn tall and radiating rock and roll eminence in cut-off jean shorts and high-kick glory. He had a voice like napalm and a smile like Jesus. Claudio, on guitar, was thrashing around in a performance reminiscent of Captain Sensible, but along with Bitto and Curzio (on bass and drums) terrorizing the place, these guys were playing the loud, fast shit.

The pit was ferocious (due props to my beloved hometown scene) and, needless to say, I gladly coughed up the measly 20 bucks for the vinyl, Interruzione, which has sense seen innumerous spins on my dusty, old table. I love this band. They are legitimately super badass. With influences ranging from Motörhead and Venom, Accused, Suicidal Tendencies, and Italian bands like Frammenti, Kina, and Stinky Rats to more post-hardcore influences like Crimpshrine and Hüsker Dü (who have a big influence on this new album, Qui Ed Ora) – the band knows their history, and, I think, could become a big part of it, if you let them.

NOFU is headed back on the road, embarking on a West Coast (U.S.) tour this month, with 14 stops from Tijuana to Washington, including one sold out show with The Cro-Mags and EYEHATEGOD. Qui Ed Ora won’t officially release until this February, however CD’s and cassettes are being made available for the tour via Carr’Amato Records and Reality is a Cult Records. Tapes and CD’s will be done FOR THIS TOUR ONLY!! So, if you’re lucky enough to catch these guys in the act, be sure and scoop one up. (or maybe two, so you can mail me a copy.) The February release will be on 7″ vinyl, however the band is still reaching out to labels. So, if you know a guy who knows a guy… cough, cough.

Qui Ed Ora is unbelievable. It’s a pleasant 4-track surprise that highlights the bands maturity, growth and dynamism as they depart from their hardcore/metal roots to touch on a transcendental time and element in punk rock music. Stream that EP and check out NOFU’s tour dates below.

“What we are, it has always been a postponement, omitted, of everything we do not have. Never could. Just beyond the fears. Just beyond the uncertainties. Just beyond the insecurities. Just beyond. The goal, the place, we are looking for. We aspire to. It’s so close, but we do not see it. What we call the path. The path, it is only the name of fear, of hesitation. Here and now, quotes of what we would like here and now, broken phrases. Silences. Redeemed and fragile.” (Lyrics to “Qui Ed Ora” from translation)
