SPOTLIGHT: Hell Mary Self-Titled Vinyl Release Show

hell-mary-release-show

If there is a reason you need to pay attention to local NJ hardcore it is the chaotic natural force that is Hell Mary. Their self-titled record claims 10 tracks, most of which never make it past the 2-minute mark. It’s classic, rage-fueled hardcore meets the eclecticism and speed of bands like Every Time I Die. And yet, you’ve most likely never heard of them unless you’re a Jersey local. They’re a gem very much kept under the dirt, and perhaps they like it that way, but you’re missing out if you haven’t had them tear your ears off and throw them underneath their drummer’s bass pedal. So do yourself a favor and give the record a listen and check out a live show whenever you get the chance.

Shit You’ll Say When You’re 80 and Still Hardcore

Remember when your grandpa would tell you it only cost a quarter to see a “moving picture” when he was a teen? Or how he used to walk five miles a day just to get to school? Well, if we make it to that ripe old age, we’ll probably be saying kooky stuff, too. Here are some phrases you may find yourself groaning out in the nursing home, if you make it that far.

New TDWP Single “South Of The City”

The Devil Wears Prada released a 7″ of their new single “South Of The City” exclusively for Record Store Day (April 18th). While the physical copy was only available for the audiophile’s holiday, the digital download is now available for purchase on iTunes and for streaming on YouTube below. The new single was preceded by a documentary of the same name from the band’s recording sessions.

The single is a significant turn in style for the well known metalcore band. The sound of “South Of The City” is more stripped down, contemplative and unassuming than some of their past tracks for which they have become known (“Outnumbered,” “Hey John, What’s Your Name Again?”, “Born To Lose”). The feeling the song exudes is a lingering one, a sensation and a sound like falling rain, as vocalist Mike Hranica repeats the line “When it rains, I feel better” for a good part of it’s 4+ minute duration.
