Another day, another whacky “that can’t be true headline” for me to see. Parler (social media network for right-wing weirdos) has been shut down, hacked, and user’s info leaked for the FBI to track. Trump will either be replaced or …replaced by tomorrow. Metal musicians are being outed left and right over their positive stance on the attempted coup from January 6th. Domestic terrorists are being detained, and arrested at airports and all over the U.S. — it’s not even noon yet. Can’t say that I’m not thoroughly enjoying this. But if you’re one of those crybabies, hey… fuck your feelings (remember that?).
Now that my morning has been eaten up by scrolling through #NoFlyList videos on Twitter, it’s time to get into some MFKN music! Last week I only did one band for my MMM post, and as much as I love the band, I wish I had more — so I’m going back to my original format of five bands per post! As for solo features, I’ll just post them throughout the week! If you’re interested in having your band listed or featured in MFKNZINE, check this shit out right here!
Okay let’s get this started!
VINNYTSIA FATALITIES — ‘DEATH BEATS THROUGH MY HEART’
Starting off with some deathcore! VINNYTSIA FATALITIES is a “Myspace Era”-style deathcore band who has released their second full length album ‘Death Beats Through My Heart’. Really takes you back to the days where you had to choose one song for you profile — and the hours you spent trying to come up with your full scale playlist when they upgraded. VINNYTSIA FATALITIES is a band to watch out for! I definitely love the dedication to the classic style to remind us how it started and why we love it so much. Will they switch it up in the future, who knows? I will (you too if you stay #MFKNConnected)! Check out their second studio album below and be sure to go to their Band Camp page to see their other work!
TOXIC CARNAGE — ‘NUCLEAR ADDICTION’
TIME FOR SOME ADRENALINE!!! TOXIC CARNAGE comes in lightning fast with this EP called ‘Nuclear Addiction’! This thrash metal band from Mairinque, Brazil is ten years deep in the game with several releases under their belt. It’s short, but packs a meeeeaaan punch (including a cover of SODOM‘s “Nuclear Winter“) with these nasty ass riffs and fast-paced.. well EVERYTHING! Get into this TOXIC CARNAGE band with me and listen to it below. Don’t forget to head over tot their Band Camp where this album is “name your price” ( donate at least $5-$7).
OOZING/PHARMASIST — SPLIT CD
I’m honestly split between this split — I don’t know which band I like more. On the first half it’s OOZING, a one-man deathgrind band from Pheonix, Arizona. And on the second half you have PHARMASIST which is a goregrind group from Japan that started up last year. I’m not really sure how they linked up but I’m glad — both are badass! Which one do you like more? Listen below and let me know via social media (@MFKNZINE)! Check out their separate works at the official Band Camp pages for OOZING and PHARMASIST and buy this album!
HUSH — “THE VOID IN HER MIND”
HUSH is anything but quiet! What an ironic name for a killer one-woman brutal death metal band from Reykjavík, Iceland (loving the cover art by the way)! HUSH‘s main themes are centered around anti sexism, anti racism and anti homophobia (which all music should be) and screams her way into the void with powerful howls. The amount of released from 2019 to now is astounding and there’s another one just released called ‘Black Heart’. Check out her song below and head over to the official Band Camp page to see allllll of her amazing work (and her album covers)!
DEVIL’S POISON — ‘SACRIFICE’
To top off the list here is a black thrash metal band from Coyhaique, Chile called DEVIL’S POISON who also started off in 2020! Their first album was dropped right before COVID told hold of the globe (aww damnit), but they’ve been steadily making music regardless! This is their latest release entitled ‘Sacrifice’ which is a perfect combination between black and thrash metal. Really loving the serious vintage feel of the vocals that DEVIL’S POISON has in combination with the music — very deep and brooding, but still high energy. Check out their release below and be sure to support them by checking out their official Band Camp page here!
