So, it's been a little slow here lately. With that in mind I picked something awesome to post for my return. MAJOR CUNT are an awesome noisecore band hailing from Scotland. One of the members runs VILENOISE RECORDINGS, a lot of great noise coming out there these days, go check it out if you haven't already. Scotland seems to be the UK center for noise at the moment, with great acts like DEATHWANK, ANAL A GO GO GEDDON, and ASAHARA making the rounds up there. Maybe I should move there! Haha. MAJOR CUNT play a kind of raw grind/noise that isn't the harshest or most extreme noise going, but it's got it's own interesting style. Rarely for a noisecore band, you can usually make out the riffs being played quite well, which helps to define the unique sound that these guys are producing. It's kind of hard to describe, really. It's almost melodic, ALMOST. As melodic as noise can get anyway. Some riffs are even quite catchy. For these reasons some tracks don't sound as harsh as you might like, but some tracks are definitely harsher than a lot of noisecore coming out now, and taking most of the releases as a whole, they almost always flow from harsh noisy savage stuff to slightly less harsh, maybe-a-little melodic but still noisy stuff well. It never sounds out of place, and definitely makes for interesting listening. They don't usually play extremely fast, which is a shame, but definitely enough fast bits and each release is pretty powerful. Their sound doesn't change too much from release to release, which is great. Sometimes they put out live/rehearsal recordings, sometimes it sounds like a studio live recording. Almost always distorted, noisy, sometimes they even break out some solos hahaha. Definitely an interesting band, and one of my favourites from the UK at the moment for sure. Get their 100CANDAN release here, for the rest, get your ass over to Vilenoise!
