R.I.P. - "IN THE WIND" 2XLP (RIDING EASY RECORDS)
"In a heavy metal wasteland littered with cookie cutter snooze-button doom bands rocking $10,000 rigs and $1 riffs, its a huff of fresh air straight out of the glue bottle to hear R.I.P. – four cretins from the Pacific Northwest who play knuckle dragging death obsessed metal at the speed of the streets"
- The Obelisk
"And once “In The Wind Part I” unleashed its megaton riffs on my willing ears, I was in doom heaven, seen through the mind of one too many hits of acid. R.I.P. brings you raw, dark and filthy doom that you can whip your hair to. It’s fast, fuzzed-out, loud and heavy and will encourage the overconsumption of whiskey and weed."
- CVLT NATION
TINY KNIVES - "BLACK HAZE" LP (EOLIAN EMPIRE)
"...one hell of a challenging, fascinating record.the guitar tone alone could sink a battleship, and that's without even mentioning the utterly tectonic bass that hangs high, dominating the mix"
– NOISEY / Vice
“TINY KNIVES‘ more unhinged moments recall Crass’ reckless musical abandon at times, and His Hero Is Gone’s crushing anger at others”
– Portland Mercury
"It’s a rant-fueled, maniacal, white-knuckled ride through Portland’s gritty back-alleys; killer stuff"
– EARSPLIT PR
COCO COLUMBIA - TVPDX SESSION #14
In addition to making records, WE also work for guy wagner's a/v company tvpdx which shoots bands against a black backdrop out of our studio. 100% live / 0% overdubbing!
we love working on these sessions as they're great for artist promo and we Like getting to be part of something that visually captures the diverse music community here in portland, or.
it's ALSO a great experience as it forces US to constantly think critically about the live recording process as these sessions need a quick turn around without sacrificing quality.
