UNDERER - The Code

Full Album Stream: UNDERER “The Code” – Decibel Magazine

UNDERER‘s debut album, The Code, is a gloriously chaotic and experimental take on heavy music, informed by the likes of Genghis Tron, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, and Swarm Of The Lotus. […] The programmed drums add a robotic precision to the shrieked vocals and other instrumentation, which ranges from minimalist ambient to weirdo grind and bizarre doom.” – Decibel Magazine

GRIDFAILURE: Sixth Mass​-​Extinction Skulduggery II

Review: GRIDFAILURE Sixth Mass-Extinction Skulduggery II – Wormwood Chronicles

“Mass extinction, dystopian government and the downfall of humanity are no longer abstract ideas of a distant future…they are staring us right in the face like hungry wolves. They are as real as the air we breathe. Right now there’s no better time for a project like GRIDFAILURE, the one man industrial noise/drone machine headed up by PR whiz Dave Brenner. GRIDFAILURE has had an unbelievably prolific career, participating in more splits and Eps than you can shake a human femur bone at. But with Sixth Mass Extinction-Skulduggery II, Brenner has pulled out all the stops and created the most massive ode to miserable, end-times sound yet.” – Dr. Abner Mality, Wormwood Chronicles

Review: GRIDFAILURE Sixth Mass-Extinction Skulduggery II – The Doorway To

“…a hushed and terrifying unsettled arrangement of off kilter tones, screams, tools, and thought patterns that you just know are going to end in the worst possible manner. […] If Rapoon was more pissed off and Merzbow had more control, this is where GRIDFAILURE firmly sits.” – The Doorway To

Under Review: GRIDFAILURE Sixth Mass-Extinction Skulduggery II – Discovered Magazine

“This is a record with a lot of free space, but in these long moments there’s nowhere to relax; instead, these are long periods of tension, hammering home the aesthetic, relentless.” – Discovered Magazine

GRIDFAILURE: Sixth Mass​-​Extinction Skulduggery II

Review: GRIDFAILURE Sixth Mass-Extinction Skulduggery II – The Sleeping Shaman

Red Tide Baptism sounds positively mellow and understated compared to follow-up track Farmer Suicide, with the type of vocals that make your average black metal band sound like Lady Gaga…” – The Sleeping Shaman
