Find out more about No Zodiac: 1. While No Zodiac spend plenty of time throughout the first three to four songs adding in fretwork that could bring a paraplegic to two-step, as the album carries on, so does the dense and devastating aggression. Churches reduced to pestilent bastions of hatred and bigotry—preaching hate and disapproval, every word said and syllable spoken more treacherous and tedious than the last. Brutal new one premieres Masters of brutality have announced their new album Altars of Impurity will be released on 7 April via Siege Music. No Zodiac: Throughout all three albums, we have matured over all. The entire universe, it seems, finds itself prostrated before an Altar of Impurity And No Zodiac are behind it, arms spread wide, embracing the chaos and insanity. How is it different now playing larger venues with Oceano? Hernandez takes the musical misanthropy abundant on Altars of Impurity and makes it even more diabolical, giving it a flair of hellfire that not even Satan himself could handle.
Artist: Album: Altars of Impurity The tables have turned; everything once deemed pure in the world has become poison—the holy and sacred is contaminated and putrid. We have a lot of awesome guest spots on this album. It is heaviness that seeps into your brain and melts your spinal cord, dissolving your ability to think and function like a normal human being. Hardcore was not meant for everyone. With a peppy, punchy start that quickly decays into morbid, murderous and malevolent brutality, this track sees No Zodiac at the top of an empire they spent the last thirty minutes building; and the reign with cruelty and a crushing leaden fist. Concert Crap: How have you guys progressed from Population Control, to Eternal Misery, to Altars of Impurity? The shows with Oceano are definitely some of the biggest shows we have played in the states. Altars of Impurity is an all out metal assault fusing the seriously ferocious tone of classic death metal with the power of modern deathcore and also has guest features from Trevor Stnrad of Black Dahlia Murderand Karebear of Suburban Scum.
The whole safe space, internet era of hardcore has really watered things down and in my opinion has taken away some of the raw aggression, which is what drew us to it in the first place. We feel that this lineup is the strongest we have ever had and our new vocalists style fits the music we are going for a lot better than our previous. In this manner, the band bounce back and forth between relentless, hammering heaviness and quick, fun fretwork that confidently strides a fine line between thrash-influenced metal and raw, meaty heavy hardcore. The energy you get from playing a small room with 50 kids wilding out is definitely something of itself. Altars of Impurity is violence distilled—take whatever album, band, sound or song you might have heard previously that took that title and push it aside, because that throne now belongs to none other than No Zodiac.
. Altars of Impurity is punishment at its finest; combining atmosphere with awe-inspiring amounts of slamming, sinister brutality and an unending arsenal of hatred, No Zodiac do exactly what they do best—obliterate everything in sight. With thrash and hard-hitting contemporary hardcore adding in the gaps between bone-busting beatdown and relentless, metallic fury, Altars of Impurity is an album that will have all of heavy music prostrating before it before they even know what hit them. No Zodiac have once more proven that they are capable of brutality that cannot be matched—neither by weight or heaviness, but by creative and unique touches from genres spanned by space and time. While Hernandez might not draw upon a complete range of shrill shrieks, high-pitched pig squeals and absurd vocal gimmicks that many bands with hints and flashes of slam might, he makes up for it with unbridled, unrivaled and almost-unbearable intensity. They thrive on fear, flourish on disorder. Refusing to slow down after the release of their critically acclaimed, skull-crushing release Eternal Misery, the band are back and—somehow—manage to one-up their prior ten-ton terror with a twenty-ton juggernaut of jarring, lurid—yet magnificent and catchy—follow-up.
The way we write is different each time, the influences for the music are different and just the overall process of making an album is different. Hung By The Tongue 7. The music itself has changed in certain ways, taking different aspects of hardcore from different eras and such but it is all derived from the same things so in a way it has also stayed the same. The world is in a state of spiritual decay, and where there was once hope, there is now…nothing; hollow, void and null nothingness. As a band we decided this album would be in a different direction than our previous full lengths. All Questions answered by drummer Erik Bartow. Prior to this release we have had a few member shifts one being a new vocalist.
