FlightOfIcarus and Dave Raffy of our own “Raffy Reviews” launch the debut episode of Trench Trash: a rambling assortment of trash talking, ranting, and otherwise discussion of metal-related topics that normally gets flushed from our general rule of positive focus. All in good fun with no malice intended. Opinions are like buttholes…everyone has one. We blather on about the new Whitechapel album, recent Amon Amarth music video, Five Finger Death Punch, the upcoming Periphery, metal memes, Tool, the Big 4 of metalcore, black metal 1st versus second wave, and more.

Background once again thanks in part to to Kim Holm: https://denungeherrholm.smugmug.com/

Theme song is once again The Hudson Horror's “What The Moon Brings,” just in reverse

Coming RIGHT out of his first full listen of the album. FlightOfIcarus shares his first thoughts on the latest album from these love 'em or hate 'em progressive metalcore giants. Is this even metalcore anymore? And why does Flight compare these new directions to Ihsahn? Find the answers to these clickbait questions within. LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE, nutbutt!

FlightOfIcarus shamelessly shares his unsolicited opinion of a new article on Kerrang! that has The Black Dahlia Murder's Trevor Strnad ranking his band's albums from worst to best. Who will win?

TRIGGER WARNING! If you want to avoid political and otherwise controversial topics, I encourage you to listen to the 30 minute music-focused version instead of this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fZlAy_gtI4 I don't like politics and social ideology forced down my throat when I just want some R & R, so I provided you with some options.

FlightOfIcarus interviews Charlie Fell, known for his work with Lord Mantis, Cobalt, and Abigail Williams, among other things. In this full version of the interview, we discuss Charlie’s current status with Cobalt, his foot injury in Poland, the upcoming reunion album with Lord Mantis, burying the hatchet with old friends, past rivalries with the band Indian, scene politics, thoughts on addiction and other social issues, mental health, and much more. Again, if you are averse to listening to open discussion of tough topics, this is probably not the interview for you.

To be clear, this is just two people sharing and processing their own personal opinions. I do not claim any of the ideas expressed to be absolute fact or any form of a call to action. I am completely open to the idea that my own ideas may be flawed or outright incorrect. The point is that it is important to openly discuss varying viewpoints on these issues rather than stuffing them down. Form your own opinions based on hearing from a wide range of people from different backgrounds, and never take one person’s words as a reason to take action.

I am anti-violence, anti-harassment, and support all people’s right to a happy life regardless of background or beliefs. Please do not use any of this discussion as motivation to bully or otherwise harass anyone. That is not at all my intention. Also, if you have been physically harmed or had your rights violated by someone else, PLEASE do come forward to law enforcement and seek counseling if you feel able. There are good people that can help you, and I am in complete favor of holding parties within the rule of the law...

Topics covered include touring schedule, backstage antics, the next legendary figures of the metal scene, his side job as a substitute Kindergarten teacher, the changing music business, the vast variability of what it means to be “folk metal,” and much more.

ORDER Rise of Discontent:
https://splitcross.bandcamp.com/album/rise-of-discontent

"The dudes from SPLIT/CROSS have been shouting against injustice through different extreme music endeavors, most notably through The Human Race Is Filth (sludgy crust/grind) and the now defunct Police State. Now, the trio is on the way to raise their voice a step further with the newly formed force Split/Cross.

Hailing from South Central PA (Harrisburg & York PA), Split/Cross can possibly be described by the sound where hardcore meets pulverizing grindcore and crust punk with the razor-sharp d-beat touch and some dabs of heavy doom/sludge. Upon further inspection, an educated pair of ears will even discover the death and black metal influences in the music as well. The music delivers a torrent of aggressive moments, soaked in sardonic and depressive interludes.

The Debut recording of Split/Cross is a short album, entitled “Rise of Discontent”, and is out digitally through Bandcamp (for now) on Jan 31, 2019. Hard copy versions to be available when they get the funds or some support from some outsiders."

CREDITS:

Paul Folk – Guitars (past and current bands include THRIF (The Human Race Is Filth), Exterminance, Police State, Bittered…)

Kasey Harrison – Bass/Vocals (past and current bands include THRIF (The Human Race Is Filth), Police State, Bittered….)

Matt Bear – Drums (past band includes Police State)

“Rise Of Discontent” was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Oblivion Studios in Upper Marlboro, MD in one day on December 1, 2018. Oblivion Studios has recorded many classic releases (Deceased/ Enemy Soil/ Pulling Teeth/ Pig destroyer to name a few).

I do not own the rights to this song. All credit to Split/Cross. Shared for promotional purposes only.

Polish black metal project led by sole member Khtunae Mortifer, ARS MAGNA UMBRAE returns with the band's newest full-length effort, 'Lunar Ascension.' "Equally inspired by Nightbringer, Blut Aus Nord and Mare Cognitum, and mainly focused on dissonant riffs and bewitching melodies, ARS MAGNA UMBRAE's music is as suffocatingly dense and aggressive as only the old black metal was."

From the album "L’Éternité Par Les Astres. Purchase and listen here: https://howlinginthefogofficial.bandcamp.com/

"Every star, exists an infinite number of times in time and space, not in only one of its forms, but like in each moments of its existence, from birth to death. And all the beings scattered on its surface, large and small, alive or inanimate.
The earth is one of these stars. Every human being is therefore eternal, I personally think Music also is eternal, maybe our body is temporary but not our minds and souls.
All these lands sink, one after one, into the flames that renew them, to be reborn and sink again, this is a monotonous flow of an hourglass that turns and empties eternally alone. "

All Instruments, Vocals, Lyrics by “Der Antikrist Seelen Mord” (Gabriele Paolo Marra).
Idea Concept album inspired to the book "L’Eternité Par Les Astres" (Auguste Blanqui).
Editing Cover Artwork by Alexios Ciancio.
