Optimism Is Self Deception Vols 1 & 2 - Darkside NYC

DARKSIDE NYC

OPTIMISM IS SELF-DECEPTION: VOLS. 1 & 2

72 minutes of madness over 23 tracks. This is a legit double album, not a compilation. Darkside NYC builds upon its roots in New York’s urban soundscape with nods to first wave black metal, d-beat crust, and even incorporate elements of dark industrial noise. The outcome is a brutally heavy, vicious record with one foot in familiar territory and the other in a bleak, metallic world all its own.

Chaka - Neanderthal Tales

CHAKA

NEANDERTHAL TALES

While elements of doom and hardcore rear their heads throughout this 4-song EP, the main strain showing glaring prominence is the sludgy, speaker-fraying, super-amped metal that raises the adrenaline. Definitely not for the weak.

Optimism Is Self Deception Vols 3 & 4 - Darkside NYC

DARKSIDE NYC

OPTIMISM IS SELF-DECEPTION: VOLS. 3 & 4

[NOT OUT YET]

This is all the material that didn’t end up on “Optimism… Vols. 1 & 2”. We split everything from those sessions down the middle to ensure  similar quality , style and length. Re-recorded versions of classic demo tracks  “Bearing The Brunt”, “Parasitic Worm Contraction”, “Forgiven Not Forgotten” and “Impending Extinction” will be included along with other  songs you haven’t heard before.

This has been on the back burner for a while but Rich will finally schedule time to finish up the rest of the vocals this summer.
