Hailing from the confluence of infectious disease, arbitrary violence, and rivers of industrial filth that is St. Louis MO, FISTER have been sublimating their brutally toxic environment into a deliberate and belligerent challenge to the eardrums since 2009. Comprised of drummer Kirk Gatterer, guitarist/vocalist Marcus Newstead, and Kenny Snarzyk on bass and vocals, this trio converts an eclectic swarm of extreme metal influences into the sonic analogue of trench warfare. Concussive, bloody, exhausting. Honed to grisly sharpness through years of performance, they have shared countless stages with countless musicians, including supporting sludge icons Eyehategod and Crowbar and appearances at the SXSW, Psycho Las Vegas, and Roadburn festivals. Pairing their seismic live offerings with more than a dozen releases, they have literally poured their blood into the work along the way - for their 2012 EP ‘Violence’, the band members had blood drawn and mixed with the ink used to print the liner notes.

From the hazy bulldozer bongripping of debut LP ‘Bronsonic’ to 2015’s impossibly dismal ‘IV’, a gruesome and lysergic 44 minute long single track that tests the limits of adjectives like heavy or bleak, their sound is continually (d)evolving. Consistently finding new ways to hit bottom in a sequence of splits with fellow underground juggernauts Dopethrone, Primitive Man, and Teeth among others, FISTER has emerged as one of the nastiest strains of doom metal, adept at fusing the narcotic tension of drowning in misery with the planet-splitting intensity of devout amplifier worship. Producing metal so poisonous, polluted, and nihilistic that sludge-doom-funeral-death are the only labels that can hang, the midwestern outfit are overpowering and relentless at city-leveling volume like a Sisyphean artillery brigade cursed to push two hundred tons of speaker cabinets uphill forever.

Formed in 2008, Washington, D.C.’s ILSA has wasted no time in spreading its unique brand of cloying, compelling death/doom throughout the underground and beyond. Ever since the release of its debut full-length 'The Maggots Are Hungry' (Odium Generis Humani), ILSA has produced nearly one effort every year, including three further full-length LPs and two splits with like-minded extreme metal comrades and Relapse labelmates Seven Sisters of Sleep and Hooded Menace. The band has shown just as much ambition on the live circuit as well – ILSA has played numerous festivals in D.C., performed Maryland Deathfest in 2013, and has played shows throughout the US with artists such as Windhand, Coffins, and many others. After the May 2015 release of the band’s fourth album, 'The Felon’s Claw' (A389 Recordings), ILSA signed to Relapse Records, and quickly released a split 12" with labelmates Coffins. The band is now preparing to write yet another full-length in the near future (all release info TBA).
