New A/V project includes collaborators from Full of Hell, Chelsea Wolfe +
Jesse Draxler - Reigning Cement

Revolver is sharing a new project by visual artist Jesse Draxler and Full of Hell's Dylan Walker. Watch "Time reign cemenT" here, from the project titled Reigning Cement. In this collaboration, Walker's composition is paired with a video filmed and directed by Draxler, and edited by Rizz of the band Vowws.

Explaining the project, Draxler says:

The initial idea came from an exercise I had participated in years ago in which the exact same packet of visual assets were sent to multiple collage artists. Each artist was allowed to do whatever they pleased with the materials and once completed the finished artworks were compiled and published in a volume. The idea for Reigning Cement is essentially the same, only instead of visual collages, I approached each of the participating artists with the idea that they create sound collages/songs using only 34 sonic assets I supplied, with one exception: that they may add vocals if they wanted.

Walker adds:

When Jesse approached me to contribute to this project, I was really thrilled...I'm a big fan of his art and I've always wanted to get more involved with providing sound for physical art. Usually in my world, you'd usually see the album art acting as more of a support role to the music itself. I think it's really cool to see that flipped, to see our sounds and noise serve as a support role to his art. Working with his field recordings was a joy and I felt right at home with the jackhammers and crashing stone and cement. I haven't known Jesse for long, but I suspect we share many of the same guiding principles in our work and I'm honored that he brought me on board.

Planet B
Ipecac (2018)

There’s been few bands in recent memory as polarizing as The Locust. Upon the first few listens, they sound like the aural equivalent of severed nerve endings after an industrial lathe accident. But if you stick with them - and particularly if you’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing them live, what once seemed all pandemonium and chaos becomes clear … Read more

Darkness isn’t something everybody can access within themselves. Some are afraid to explore those shadowy recesses, some deny they exist, and some embrace it and find a cathartic release through some outlet of their choosing.Luckily for us, Chelsea Wolfe would appear to be in the latter category. To describe her music by any particular genre would only seem dismissive. Tawdry, … Read more

Full of Hell remain successful in orbiting the broad domain of hardcore punk without becoming victims of convention or straying from ethic. With the release of Amber Mote in the Black Vault via John Hoffman’s (Weekend Nachos) Bad Teeth Recordings, “stagnation” simply does not appear to be a part of the Maryland/Pennsylvania outfit’s vocabulary. The group grows more and more … Read more
