VARIOUS ARTISTS  Realicide / Evolve / Capital Hemorrhage : Live  CDR   (Realicide Youth)   5.00

An hour of live performances from three bands that are part of the really cool and vibrant progressive/noisy hardcore scene that's happening in the

southern Ohio area, this split was released primarily for Realicide to sell on their U.S. tour this summer, but we were able to get a few for C-Blast.

Features a bunch of live tracks from each with fairly solid recording quality that sounds like it came off of a soundboard, but most importantly each set is

super energetic and a great document of how wild each of these bands are. The only outfit on here that we had seen before in a live setting is Captial

Hemorhhage, who we caught at the 611 Florida house in DC back in December '06...their set of brutal "aktionist hardcore" os from a show in St. Louis from

March of 2007, and it's just as nasty and violent here as it was when we saw 'em, a drummer and guitarist two-piece unleashing gnarly noisy hardcore,

deformed Am Rep noise rock riffs, throwing cymbals and lead pipes around the room, and devolving into formless sludge. Evolve is a guy named Colin Murray who

performs a kind of sound collage/avant hip hop hybrid that's firmly rooted in old school Industrial moves, graff culture and a passionate DIY punk aesthetic.

His set from Johnson City, TN in December '06 is a spacey experience, with airy dub beats and heavy drum machines rattling beneath layers of field recordings

and effects-heavy tape collages. Last up is Realicide, the noisecore/gabba/electronics trio featuring Robert Inhuman's spoken-word/hip hop inspired anarcho

rants. Their set is from Nashville in December '06, with second vocalist Jim Swill and drum machine/sampler/synth abuser Mavis Concave joining Inhuman in

whipping up brutal wacked out panic speedcore, rhythmic blocks of noise, blastbeats and breakbeats, sometimes sounding like a fucked up mixture of Nine Inch

Nails, Atari Teenage Riot, and hard drive grindcore. It's a cool little live document, the disc sorting a cool screenprint on it's face, and packaged inside

of a plastic wallet sleeve with a large xeroxed poster insert. Released in a tiny edition of 110 copies.
