Portland, Oregon's extreme metal destroyers Vulture Locust have returned with "We Need To Talk" --  an 11 track promo available for free download. Following 2013's “Cold Civil War” EP, Vulture Locust have regrouped as a classic three-piece with Ryan Bartek on vocals/guitar, Max Snyder on the bass, and the inhuman war drum Nathan Pogue.

Vulture Locust represent one fanatic mission – to incinerate the underground with their lethal blend of spastic grindcore, vintage thrash and savage death metal. “We Need To Talk” features 11 tracks of police state conspiracy and societal collapse, recorded/mixed/mastered ever so brutally by Anthony Morningstar of Machetaso Profano. No triggers, no overdubs – just raw and bludgeoning.

“We Need To Talk” is the last promotional step before Vulture Locust records their fully mastered, full-on studio record. This self-funded D.I.Y. band didn't feel the need to let the clock tick away in the meantime, and “We Need To Talk” exacts revenge on the stagnant, sleepy, image-obsessed scenester hypnotism now clogging the arteries of the global underground. Vulture Locust occupies the stage and victimizes the audience, fueling infinite petrol to the worldwide riot.

Reviews and news announcements are very much appreciated!!

Ryan Bartek unleashes “Return To Fortress Europe (Part I of IV)”

Underground writer/musician Ryan Bartek has returned with his particular form of extreme journalism. Following up on his acclaimed book series that began with “The Big Shiny Prison” and continued with “Fortress Europe,” Bartek again raises the bar with “Return To Fortress Europe.”

 “Return To Fortress Europe” is a four part mini-series that chronicles the authors travels through Europe's fringe world of underground music and alternative culture in 2012 and 2013.

The first chapter “Subteren Voivode Romaniâ” features the author going deep into the heart of Transylvania armed with nothing but a tape recorder and a travel pack in order to cover the Romanian extreme metal scene, as well as the social and political unrest of this Post-Communist country.

In this Romanian chapter, Bartek conducts face-to-face interviews with members from experimental metal band Krepuskul, thrash/death overlords DECEASE, metalcore upstarts Divided By Perception, Sibiu's groove-laced metal rockers Heavy Duty and Brasov's deathcore act Deliver The God.

“Return To Fortress Europe” is not just simply a work of “music writing.” Bartek assumes a role similar to many American writers that flourished in times of economic crisis. Like Kerouac, Steinbeck or Henry Miller, he shines a spotlight on the complexities of unconventional lives, and saturates his writing with social and political commentary. “Return To Fortress Europe” walks the line between journalism, autobiography, and the “great American road novel” (ironically placed in Europe).

Bartek takes the time to visit Castle Dracula, hitchhike through Slovenia and Croatia, visit Belgrade as a hobo drifter. He crawls the back alleys of Budapest, sites of WWII atrocities, bizarre and alien environments while pondering the mystery of the Romani (“gypsy”) people. In addition, Bartek includes impassioned reviews of the legendary Brutal Assault Festival in Czech as well as the ultimate Forest/Psytrance/Goa festival in Europe – Croatia's Modem Festival (a.k.a “Memento Demento”).   

The remaining three chapters of “Return To Fortress Europe” will be released throughout 2014 and will focus on Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal. More info TBA.   

“Return To Fortress Europe (Part I of IV)” is a free download and can be viewed on Scribd: http://www.scribd.com/doc/208787611/Return-to-Fortress-Europe-Part-One-Subteren-Voivod-Romania-by-Ryan-Bartek

Extreme Metal band VULTURE LOCUST release Free E.P. “COLD CIVIL WAR”

Portland Oregon's grind/death/thrash metal horde VULTURE LOCUST have just released their first recording as a free download. This new E.P. is entitled “COLD CIVIL WAR” and contains six vicious selections of grind-blasting, riff-shredding, throat-gurgling/screaming insanity.

VULTURE LOCUST keep it underground as possible with harsh, lo-fi recording techniques and a raging wall of ear-bleeding sound as they lyrically drag the audience through the nightmare world of police state conspiracy. VULTURE LOCUST raise every uncomfortable question while refusing to give a straight answer.

COLD CIVIL WAR cover art: http://i1338.photobucket.com/albums/o693/anomiepsyops/COLDCIVILWARcover_zps2c2c7b07.jpg

**VULTURE LOCUST is a savage and uncompromising extreme metal band from Portland, Oregon featuring members of SASQUATCH AGNOSTIC & SELF MURDER. This bulldozer of supersonic terror is the depraved brainchild of guitarist Ryan Bartek (ex A.K.A. MABUS & SASQUATCH AGNOSTIC).

Discovering the lack of talent necessary to pull off this fascist annihilating assault wasn't easy, but from the PDX underground soon came grind mercenaries from the blast-assassins known as SELF MURDER eager to deafen audiences with Bartek's horrific audio molestation.

The juggernaut fury of bassist Max Snyder collides with Bartek's nuclear shredding, augmented by Steve Kowats terrorizing vocals & the inhuman blasting of drummer Nathan Pogue. Battering audiences with a mutated strain of grindcore, death metal, thrash, doom & crust, VULTURE LOCUST is a blasphemic orgy of police state conspiracy which stares directly into the abyss with a crooked mescaline grin.

VULTURE LOCUST will be releasing a full-length debut in Spring 2014 with NorthWest USA shows and a West Coast tour to follow.

Beginning July 19th, guitarist Ryan Bartek will be travelling Europe for underground journalism and to work with session musicians to record VULTURE LOCUST tracks. Bartek is currently recruiting another VULTURE LOCUST live squadron in Europe to play festival gigs and future DIY tours. More info @ Bartek's personal site www.BIGSHINYPRISON.com

Metal / AKA MABUS - Lord Of The Black Shep [free download]
« on: February 05, 2013, 11:55:07 AM »
This is the long lost AKA MABUS record LORD OF THE BLACK SHEEP (2006). AKA MABUS came from Detroit and blended every form of extreme metal together in a death-thrashing, grind-centric, genre-defying destroyer complete with a pissed off, punk rock attitude. At any given moment AKA MABUS could fly into death, thrash, black metal or grind while oozing in sound samples and industrialized segueways. AKA MABUS burned fast & hard from 2004-2006. LORD OF THE BLACK SHEEP was recorded in 2006 and unreleased until 2010. AKA MABUS insist you pirate this album!!!

REVIEW FROM METAL MANIACS MAGAZINE, MAY 2007: 'It's like sledding down a mountain of landmines, hauling ass like a champ to ensure you're past the next one when it blows, damn close to becoming pink snow each time. Blending grindcore, punk, industrial and thrash elements together, exposure to AKA MABUS incites an anarchic, uncontainable explosion of neurotic hate the punks, grinders, 'bangers and all chaos-born heathens into raw, demented, metallic battery will likely dig. And it bore no surprise upon first listen... A dude who expresses his inner rage towards modern humanity in any artistic way possible, 'Maniacs' writer/musician/pissed American Ryan Bartek helps man this act. I am sure others involved share and contribute to the bands message. End-bringing apocalyptic/anarcho, proto/retro, genre crossbreeding has resulted in something that's immediately familiar yet completely innovative. I need not add comparisons since it genre-jumps/mangles nonstop. Discerningly catchy, pathologically corrosive and (hopefully) morally corruptive, 'Lord Of The Black Sheep' is a f**king outstanding display of what America can produce musically, yet will remind you of its evils and contradictions in every syllable.' -Dave Brenner
