Last week all 8 bands from the 4-country 2x12" gatefold split were released. Each band is contributing an EP worth of material, hence the use of "split" and not "comp", but call it whatever you feel like cuz it's going to kick serious ass. We've already heard the Lamantide, Nous Etions and The World That Summer tracks and they are fucking stellar. Below we have linked our favourite songs from each band so you can check out all the bands, as they are all quite different but equally amazing.

The tape is now available to order and ships right away. (((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) did a full album review so if you want to know more check that right here.
Released on Zegema Beach Records and Dingleberry Records
For fans of: Antioch Arrow, The Blood Brothers and The Locust.
Spastic, disturbing and violent synths/bass and vocal onslaught from our soon to be alien overlords Hydra Kiken. The guitarist/vocalist of Life In Vacuum takes over vocal duties while Nick will melt your brain with the instrumentals and effects that sound like an intergalactic war. The songs range from a blitz of screamy post-punk/hardcore to what sounds like alien transmissions and choirs. This is a dark and mind-altering sonic experience.
Black tape with double-sided crimson red imprint and red film trim w/double-sided j-card/lyrics. 1st press /70. 8 songs.
RESPIRE masters should be here in the next week or two and once that happens the (((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) blog will be premiering a new song from the album, so be on the lookout for that! Here's a live video I took of them at the Zegema Beach Records mini-fest that happened back in November of 2014.
On April 29th at 9pm THE WORLD THAT SUMMER will be hosting their split cassette (w/Apostles Of Eris) release show with:
