YAITW (Young and in the Way) are a blackened metal/crust hybrid from the shadows of North Carolina. Over the last four years YAITW have evolved through multiple releases from vicious monster to multi-headed beast. With each offering melding a vicious metal speed and hypnotic atmospherics with a bleak hardcore/punk spirit.

“When Life Comes To Death” is the newest album from YAITW. It is their eleven song war between the pain of living and the magnetic pull of death. Each song is as dispirited and vitriolic as the next. Embattled opener “Betrayed By Light” emerges from darkness first, setting an ominous tone with haunting buzz-saw guitars, vicious vocals, and crushing d-beat drumming. While YAITW embrace demon speed and emotional dynamics in nihilistic hymns “Be My Blood”, “Take My Hand”, “We Are Nothing”, and more. All leading to closers “Shadow of Murder” and “Embrace Extinction”, that together play as an aural eclipse of truly epic proportions.

Latest time Blixa Bargeld spoke about the band was in 2010 and those were the words:  “We know that the gigantic monster Einsturzende Neubauten is going to go to sleep on the bottom of the ocean for a while.” Thankfully for fans for erudite clattering, the group have announced they’re making a return with what sounds like a rather remarkable composition. Neubauten have composed a piece of music called LAMENT, to be premiered at Diksmuide in Belgium on November 8th 2014 as part of the commemoration of a battle one hundred years before. That event is called Against The Neglection: Gone West – the fall of Diksmuide 1914-2014. The group will then tour LAMENT, featuring a date at London’s KOKO on November 19th.

The project, about which more can be read here, sounds fascinating: we’re told that “this will not be a concert about World War One” but instead music inspired by related themes and issues. The group have made LAMENT after researching audio recording of interviews with prisoners of war from all over the world that are held at the Humboldt University and the German Broadcasting Archives, along with other material from the Dresden military history museum. We’re told that the musical forms of the lament and the motet will be combined with the voices of the POWs to form the basis of the musical piece, which will also incorporate the music of the Harlem Hell Fighters, the Afro-American soldiers who fought alongside the French during the War.

Wovenhand david #12 hi res

Wovenhand is a band led by dedicated life-musician and lyricist, David Eugene Edwards. Over the last two decades, his prolific work in both Wovenhand and the legendary 16 Horsepower has influenced and inspired a generation of musicians throughout the expansive alternative music world.

Wovenhand cannot be described in traditional terms. Their sound is an organic, weavework of neo-folk, post rock, punk, old-time, and alternative sounds. All coming together as a vehicle for David’s soulful expression and constant spiritual self exploration. Sometimes sad and sorrowed and at other times uplifting, Wovenhand are always unforgettable in spirit and sound.

“Refractory Obdurate” is the latest album from Wovenhand. Joining David on this album are longtime percussionist Ordy Garrison, along with musicians Chuck French and Neil Keener (Planes Mistaken For Stars, Git Some).

“Refractory Obdurate” is a moving masterwork that shows Wovenhand exploring louder roots hinted at on prior albums. As they maintain their melodious course, “Good Shepherd”, “Field of Hedon”, and “Hiss”, stomp forth with a newly amplified punk rock heart. While “The Refractory”, “Salome”, and “Obdurate Obscura” each ascend epically into a multi-layered haze. Ten songs in all, “Refractory Obdurate” plays as a beautifully crafted patchwork that transcends genres and expectation; a true artistic achievement, that only Wovenhand could offer.
