STARKWEATHER / OVERMARS split LP
"Philly's Starkweather and France's Overmars have teamed up to release a split 12" LP. Together Overmars and Starkweather have created an unclassifiable, paranoid journey into the artistic abyss, proving that aggressive music still has much to offer. No end is in sight as bands like these continue to reach down deep into their souls to explore such uncharted creative waters."
"Overmars released numerous recordings, many of which have been reissued by the Crucial Blast label. Their brand of expansive musical darkness was breath taking. A bleak and barren mix of doom, metal tinged punk, and experimental hardcore. Bringing to mind later era Swans and Neurosis, while harboring a heaviness all their own. Starkweather's legacy within aggressive music is legendary. Recorded at the same time as their "This Sheltering Night" album, their contributions here show a creative force at their most powerful. The complex "Armed Memory" shows Starkweather as tortured, jagged, and frantic as they've ever been. While their 14 minute epic "Nightmare Factory" is a layered metallic dirge of catastrophic proportions."
