Wormrot played the Backstage Club, Munich, on March 31 2019 and it was a goddarn paycheck! Let me pay them back with some heavy-handed comparisons, freak associations and occurrences as stray as they are meaningless. Never one to shy away from analogies that rather obscure than illuminate, I'll attach baggage to Wormrot's spotless Grind package… Continue reading HC#7: Wormrot live at the Backstage Club, Munich

It's a time-honoured tradition of modernity to leave your dire situation behind for a moment (or forever) and go on a road trip and feel "real life(TM)" so that your changed vantage point may better enable you to fully realize… Continue reading HC#6_The Sunn AlsO))) Rises (live Nancy, 3/7/2019)
In welchem Heavy vom neuen Album "Surface Noise" der Texaner Judiciary profan erleuchtet in Zugen redet. [Note: there will be some posts in English, some in German.

In welchem Heavy versucht zu erklären, was in diesem Blog passieren soll (überkompliziert, langweilig) und die Heavyzitätsklassifikationstabelle präsentiert. [Note: there will be some posts in English, some in German. Each English post will have a German abstract and vice versa.] "Wow, those sepulchral niches sure look interesting!" ~ No one ever ('xcept your dad maybe)… Continue reading HC#0_Heavy Chettle explained: Miscellany on M et al.
