Cassette Label Summit 2014

 

CASSETTE LABELS

I’ve spent a lot of time covering cassettes here at THKD, not just because I dig them, but because I truly believe that some of the best and most interesting heavy music today is being released by smaller labels who have embraced the format as an affordable way to bring the underground to the masses.  As such, my relationship with several of these labels has become far more personal than just receiving an e-mail blast from some faceless PR company; their owners have proven to be incredibly personable and genuinely appreciative of the coverage I’ve given them.  But, as deeply as I’ve delved into cassettes and as much as I’ve chatted with those who are in the business of releasing them, I still had many unanswered questions.  What motivates them?  What brought them to the format?  At the end of the day, does the format even matter?  In an attempt to answer these and many other questions, I gathered the gents behind the labels for a virtual round table discussion of all things tape-related.

Body Count – “Talk Shit, Get Shot”

Very, very few bands have ever managed to do rap metal right.  Body Count is one of those few.  Of course, it helps when you’re fronted by one of the most celebrated legit hip hop artists of all time in the form of Ice-T, pretty much the only OG gangsta rapper who’s managed to keep his credibility intact while expanding his brand to include movie and TV roles + a reality show.  The band haven’t put out an album since 2006’s Murder for Hire, but they’re poised to strike back on June 10th with Manslaughter, their debut for Sumerian Records and fifth album overall.

Heavydeath – Demo I (Caligari Records, 2014)

hdforums

Between the two of them, Johan Backman and Nicklas Rudolfsson have done time in heavy hitting Swedish acts such as Sacramentum, The Funeral Orchestra, Necrocurse and Runemagick, but when the two come together as Heavydeath is when things get really, uh, heavy.  Indeed, the duo have crafted a deep, dark, death doom voyage with their first demo, appropriately titled Demo I, and just as you might expect from seeing the Caligari Records logo stamped on the j-card, it’s a very good one.  Oh, and did I mention yet that it’s heavy?

Bandcamp Band Crap #3: Back in Black

BANDCAMP BAND CRAP

By some miracle, I’m actually managing to do one of these per month; I can only assume it has something to do with the sheer volume of quality music available on Bandcamp, because it isn’t like I’ve gotten any less lazy.  For those of you that might not have been too terribly keen on last month’s all-slamming edition of this here series, I think you might just find this one more to your liking.  This month sees Bandcamp Band Crap skewing back toward black metal and there are some real gems here that should please fans of all the genre’s wondrous guises.  So without further ado, let’s dig in.
