NOOTHGRUSH - Live For Nothing CD

NOOTHGRUSH - Live For Nothing CD
NOOTHGRUSH - Live For Nothing CD

Their influence can be heard in many modern heavy doom/sludge bands like Zoroaster, Thou, Unearthly Trance, etc. Noothgrush ceased to exist in 2001, as the band sought to develop new material and not be forced to perform the old repertoire. Unfortunately, involvement with other bands, jobs, etc. kept Noothgrush from developing. Live For Nothing is a compilation of two live on the radio broadcasts the band did in the 90s. One, from KZSU in 1996, the other from KFJC in 1999. Both recordings are a precise document of the powerful group in their prime. The tracks were mastered by Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise guitarist) and breathe black fumes of toxins once again.

The now legendary Noothgrush, from the Bay area, was birthed in the spring of 1994 by founding members Gary Niederhoff on Bass and Chiyo Nukaga on drums. Over the next year, the band had various other members including Matt Harvey (Exhumed, Repulsion) on 2nd guitar. It wasn t until guitarist Russ Kent joined in early 1995 that the classic Noothgrush lineup was complete. The band played 145 shows, toured the U.S. and Quebec for 7 weeks, did numerous west coast, southwest tours with various bands such as Corrupted, Seized, Wisigoth, Dystopia, Hellchild, and Black Army Jacket... to name a few. They played the legendary Fiesta Grande Festival three times and most often at the infamous 924 Gilman St. club in Berkeley, CA. Over the years, they also played with many great bands such as Grief, Man is the Bastard, Suffocation, Burning Witch, Grave, His Hero Is Gone, High On Fire, Weakling, Asunder, etc. Noothgrush was well known for their consistently bludgeoning assault, played at slow as boiling tar tempos.

ASCEND - Ample Fire Within CD

ASCEND is a new collaborative musical project between Gentry Densley (Iceburn, Eagle Twin) and Greg Anderson (sunn 0))), Goatsnake, Engine Kid).

Both have been making music that has crossed paths several times in the last 19 years.(!!!) The most notable being during the 90s when Andersons’ band Engine Kid toured with and shared a split album with Densleys’ band Iceburn. During that time both were heavily experimenting with the fusion of jazz (Mahavishnu Orchestra, Miles Davis, John Coltrane) and the dark behemoth tones of influences such as The Melvins, Gore, Slint, Caspar Brotzman.

ASCEND re-visits some of the tones, and moods of their past works as well as traveling into uncharted territory all done with the utmost focus on heaviness and power. Of particular note is the vocal performance by Gentry Densley. His voice is deep and ominous with a subtle Tom Waits influence within the growls and gruffness that is emoted. Anderson gushes enthusiastically: “we were extremely fortunate to have ALOT of help from our friends with this recording. Andy Patterson pounded the hell out of the drums, and Steve Moore (aka Stebmo, also in Earth and often times : sunn 0))) ) added some trombone (Obelisk of Kolob, + Dark Matter), organ (Her Horse Is Thunder, Dark Matter) and some amazing wurlitzer (Amplifier Within, Divine). His playing brings a dark, sophisticated jazz atmosphere to the album. On the track “V O G” we were blessed to have Bubba Dupree (Void) AND none other than Kim Thayil (Soundgarden) put down some incredible lead work!
