Cock and Ball Torture Australian tour January 2013!

Posted by Lachlan

Germany's goregrind legends Cock and Ball TortureAbsolutely huge news for gore/grind fiends. German gore legends Cock and Ball Torture are heading down under in January 2013!

For that you can thank  Southern Extremeties Productions in association with Grindhead Records and Shananigans Entertainment.

Here's the press release:

A progenitor of pitch-shifted, porn influenced goregrind, and one of the most influential groups within the style, Germany's Cock and Ball Torture make their first ever trip "Down Under" at the very start of 2013.

After 3 full lengths and several EPs and splits, the group is known and loved worldwide for their catchy, grooving, down-tuned, rancid horegrind, and have a strong and supportive worldwide fan base on the back of their impressive discography and excellent live performances.

After 15 years together, and countless successful shows and tours, the lurid lads decided it was finally time to make a trip to the "Land Down Under", and give Australia a taste of the aural filth they've been dishing up for 1 and a 1/2 decades.

So this is it, the tour so many have wanted to see: Cock and Ball Torture - Bulldozing Australia 2013.

thedowngoing still hate your ears; release ATHOUSANDYEARSOFDARKNESS

Posted by Lachlan

thedowngoing ATHOUSANDYEARSOFDARKNESS Winter Tour 2012Over the years Sydney 2-piece thedowngoing have proven to be one of Australia's darkest, nosiest, and most chaotic grindcore bands. The dastardly duo are set to release their newest aural atrocity "ATHOUSANDYEARSOFDARKNESS" next month.

The 12 track, 10 minute noisegrind experiment will be released via “Cancerous” Slimline CD and be available for streaming/purchasing/pirating at thedowngoing.blogspot.com from Friday July 20th, 2012.

The guys have also assembled one hell of a tour in support of the album:

w/ Idylls, Laeirs, Vile Specimen, Shackles & more

SATURDAY JULY 14th - FAT LOUIES BRISBANE, QLD

WEDNESDAY AUGUST 1st – BAR OPEN FITZROY, VIC

SATURDAY AUGUST 4th - SQUATTERS ARMS, ADELAIDE, SA
w/ Death Cult-Jock, Trash, Iron Worzel & Prison Bitch

Press release follows:

Sydney grindcore 2-piece thedowngoing are set to release their newest aural atrocity "ATHOUSANDYEARSOFDARKNESS"

The 12 track, 10 minute noisegrind experiment will be released via “Cancerous” Slimline CD and be available for streaming/purchasing/pirating at THEDOWNGOING.BLOGSPOT.COM from Friday July 20th, 2012.

After the 2011 release of their Untitled EP mini-CD, thedowngoing have caught the attention of many in the grind community, including AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED vocalist J. RANDALL, who digitally re-released the EP on his own label GRINDCORE KARAOKE.

thedowngoing would go on to be awarded the title of BEST RELEASE OF 2011 by GRINDTODEATH.COM and 7th by GRINDANDPUNISHMENT.BLOGSPOT.COM "...Untitled EP shows the band reaching new, dizzying artistic heights."

"ATHOUSANDYEARSOFDARKNESS" builds on the platforms laid by 2011's Untitled EP, refining and pushing thedowngoings' unique sound further. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Jono Boulet (Jonathan Boulet, Snake Face) "ATHOUSANDYEARSOFDARKNESS" is a vicious listening experience as thedowngoing teeters on the edge between grindcore and complete audio collapse.

And what better soundtrack to the harsh winter conditions, than to have thedowngoing venture out from their nihilistic cave dwelling existence to provide godless grindcore to the frostbitten masses on their 2012 WINTER TOUR throughout July and August.
