Submission Sunday - 11/27/16

It's the last Sunday of the month, which means its time yet again to browse through our recent submissions and discoveries of the last month or so, and from here on in we're keeping it strictly releases from the past month in question (that means anything released after our last Submission Sunday post).

First up, Jesus Horse, mathcore from Montréal.

FFO: Every Time I Die, Blood Brothers, DriveTime Commute, The Guts


This submission is sort of an obvious one if you follow our video premieres, but we wanted to give them exposure here as well; Telos, dark hardcore / mathcore from Copenhagen.

FFO: Converge, FBTMOF


A super lo-fi but extremely compelling submission from Those Darn Gnomes (featuring members of Pyrrhon), avant-garde mathcore from San Diego. Quite the ensemble was utilized for this one.


Super catchy submission from Geil, hardcore from Halifax.

FFO: Heavy Heavy Low Low, Prissy Whip, hardcore punk


Dirty submission from Falter, heavy hardcore from Milwaukee.

FFO: Nails, His Hero Is Gone, Dead in the Dirt


One of the most exciting submissions this month comes from Dead Kiwis, mathcore from Lyon, France. Be sure to watch out for the full EP, "Karate Karnage," January 2017.

FFO: The Dillinger Escape Plan, Norma Jean, The Chariot


Like weird noise? Nimitta's got you. Instrumental 2 piece from Chicago with an impressive back-catalog.

FFO: Yowie, The Flying Luttenbachers


Our last submission is wild one, The Bugs, experimental hardcore / cybergrind from Sydney, Australia.

FFO: The Locust, Melt Banana, Head Wound City, Some Girls

We'll be back again on the last Sunday of every month with more of our favorite new releases, please support the bands; like them on Facebook, nab their releases on Bandcamp, buy their merch.

Submission Sunday - 10/30/16

Submission Sundays started as just a chain of posts on the last Sunday of every month, rounding up our favorite user-submitted releases or releases we unearthed ourselves over the course of that month. However, I felt it would be more effective to simply group all these bands into one article for your convenience and listening pleasure. This time I've narrowed it down to 10 highlights, all of them released within the last few months


First up, Sundrainer, from Richmond, Virginia. 

FFO: As the Sun Sets, mathcore / techgrind


Our next submission is a nasty one, Joy, from North Carolina. Thanks to Nick Schultz for recommending this one.

An incredible submission from Mothman, "Answers to No One," which a pummeling 20 track assault of techgrind/mathcore, and by far one of the most exciting releases this year.

Screeching, grinding madness from Munt, from Melbourne. Sick highs and insane blast beats with the occasional hardcore breakdown or 2-step, because why the fuck not?


Super sick stuff from undō, noise / grind from Oakland. Big ups to my good friend Quade Ross for recommending this one.

FFO: Daughters, techgrind, screamo


Our next band is Puncture, from LA, a promising new band who were recently brought to my attention by my friends in Wolf King

FFO: Gaza / Cult Leader, Spurn, Full of Hell

Really sick stuff from Dig Out, mathcore from Atlanta. 

FFO: Heavy Heavy Low Low, Botch, Gaza


Next we have Minerva Superduty, mathcore from Athens.

FFO: Botch, Curl Up and Die, Panthallasa 


Ilenkus, mathcore from Ireland, who's latest album was recorded by Aiden Cunningham of Murdock and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Solid release.


Our last submission is yet another sick band from the UK, Salò, from Glasgow. Thanks to homie Tarquin Jones of I Echoed So Loud for the recommendation. Too bad this band recently called it quits.


Check back on the last Sunday of every month for more new and exciting underground bands.
