Crucial Blast Records Signs Microwaves and Black Elk

Crucial Blast Records has announced the addition of two bands to their roster, Microwaves and Black Elk.

Pittsburgh's Microwaves features drummer John Roman (ex-1985), guitarist/vocalist David Kuzy, and bassist Adam MacGregor (ex-Creation Is Crucifixion). Here's a description from the label: "In the anti-tradition of whitebread Bay Area thrash metal, the violent morass of New York no wave, and a familiarity with Ralph Records insanity, Microwaves draws from a palette that is somehow as wide as it seems limited. " The band's new album, "Contagion Heuristic," will hit streets in November through Crucial Blast. You can check out some of their material online here.

Meanwhile, Portland, OR outfit Black Elk plays a "creeped out conglom of carnivorous charred hardcore punk, the sludgy power of primo Pacific Northwest tarpit rawk (think Karp, Melvins, and early Soundgarden as reference points), twitchy Midwestern noise rage somewhere between Am Rep Records (circa-1991) and a more rabid Die Kreuzen, and a goatheaded psychedelic backwoods black mass/dance party risen to a freakin' fever pitch." Black Elk's new ten-song album was produced at Smegma Studios by Mike Lastra and will hit stores on November 7th. You can check them out here.
