Yikes bikes. I hadn’t heard the first album from noise-rock beasts Couch Slut so this second album, Contempt, caught me a wee bit-off guard. Lead singer Megan Osztrosits is a terror who is able to cut through the torrential musical onslaught with a voice that is both powerful and disturbing. This is the kind of vile noise-rock that can bring various cro-magnon types (said with love) together. Grindcore, Hardcore, and so many more awful types of human beings can easily fit inside the wagon o’ love this band is rolling down the avenue. Thanks to Blocland senior metal staff members for the tip on this unhealthy music. I’m gonna listen some more. Then forget my kids birthdays, send my mom some hate mail, and perhaps beat my dog. Just kiddin’. I would never beat my dog.

Enjoy, cretins

    hes back!

  • lobster man

    Goes on hiatus and comes back with this? This new bloc intrigues, excites, and scares me just a little.

    • Blochead4real

      Bloc gettin extreme. If I’m gonna listen to pop it’s gonna be PC Music If I’m gonna listen to noise I want fucking noise. This band should get an 8.5. This album is very very violent. I kinda love it.

  • lobster man

    This album slays. D-Frye gave it the ol’ “instant classic” tag recently and I really can’t argue with that. I can’t think of a noise rock/ noise metal album that has sounded this fresh in a while.

      I stand by it, and I’m not the biggest noise rock guy in the world.

  • inthedeadofknight

    I listened to this and then immediately to their previous album and I love both. I guess I’m a ruthless scumbag full of evil and extra scum. I’m okay with that.

    • Blochead4real

      It’s a vicious motherfucker of an album. But there are hooks in there.

      • lobster man

        Listening to My Life as a Woman a year ago never would I have suspected Bloc would become the champion for Couch Slut.

  • DFrye

    Awesome bloc. AWESOME. I saw someone say this record “slashes at nerves” and I am not gonna fucking argue with that!

    Favorite songs: “Funeral Dyke”, “Folk Song”, “Penalty Scar”. Favorite moment (from the brilliant and disturbingly titled “Company Picnic With Dust Off”: when Megan vomits “Oh yeah!/Four words/ it’s up to you!”. That gleeful “Oh yeah!” before an obvious and terrifying threat absolutely DESTROYS me.
