Good To Die Records has released a compilation album online for streaming and "pay-what-you-want" download. You can check out the release, which features punk, rock, and metal acts, in the player below or over at bandcamp. The label also commented:
"Good To Die is ready to get you caught up with its first digital-only compilation. Featuring tracks from all of the label's releases to date, this handy little primer is rife with furious riffage, impassioned singing, and energy to spare. This free collection wraps together tracks from prog-metal dynamos Dog Shredder, the angular, furious punk outfit Deadkill, and the titans of sci-fi power rock Sandrider.
"This compilation also boasts a pair of exclusives. You can grab your first taste of Portland's queerest rockers Gaytheist, via 'Condemn The Condemners,' a cheeky politically minded blast from the trio's upcoming full-length Stealth Beats (out on August 21st).
"And you get your first glimpse into Good To Die's most recent signing: the sludge punkers from Portland known simply as Rabbits. A sample of the band's future Good To Die release, 'Meth Valley 99' both pays homage to the influence of Sonic Youth and gives the trio a chance to show off their love of steaming noise and throat-shredding screaming. All the goodness of Good To Die in one neat, tidy, and cost-free package? What the hell are you waiting for? Those eardrums of yours aren't going to puncture themselves." More...
Seattle-based quartet Brokaw has confirmed several Summer performances where the band will unleash noise-rock antagonism upon the attending audiences. The following press release has been issued about the shows:
"Noisemongers Brokaw are regionally-infamous for their raging live performances, where the mic stand frequently invades the audience's turf as much as the stage, while the band pummels the room with oppressively amplified riff mayhem. The band have just confirmed several hometown galas for the Summer months, including a Good To Die Records-sponsored afterparty for the city's annual Capitol Hill Block Party on July 21st, as well as a support slot for local badasses Black Breath and Red Fang on August 8th. More shows will be announced in the coming weeks as the details are confirmed.
"Led by Seattle rock lifers G. Stuart Dahlquist, Mike Henderson, Rick Troy, and Rich Medic, Brokaw is one of a breed of new groups that are paying heed to the mean, masculine sound of '90s rock outfits like the Melvins and Hammerhead. They meld that pounding attack with the rumble of drone metal like Sunn O))) and the fury of hard rockers like Goatsnake (both of which Dahlquist has spent time with both on stage and in the studio). Mix in the influences of freeform jazz a la Miles Davis in the '70s and the winking post-punk of The Fall and you get a sound unlike any other in the heavy rock world today. More...
