𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Fast- distorted, heavy-swirling riffs that are straight forward of nasty and raw, that echos with -Esque 'Rage against the machine’ guitar sound effect, with pummeling bass riffs

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Loud, shouting vocals with snarls/screams

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Chaotic rhythmic/crashing drum patterns and beast

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: With only thirty-minute playing time, ten songs, that are somewhat short, not too short, If you like your music nasty, raw with a filling of noise and punk attuite, this release is ideal for you.


Once smashing that play button, you find yourself in the insane mind of ILS, this music will take you on a wild and extreme trip of a vulgar journey with antisocial lyrics, Curse is straight to the point release that misses out all that flashy craftsmanship and musicianship playing style technic, just concentrate on playing some of most gritting, dirty extreme bare-bone crushing music that pulse out your speakers, with your ears taking a week to recover from the sheer brute noise


ILS combines elements of both worlds of punk rock, noise music, garage rock/punk, (some experimentation in the music) while adding their very own ravaging, primitive and brutalization deliverance/ adrenaline of distorted/whitewash sound, grotesque vocals, swirling riffs, crashing drumming and sick extreme music & noise for us all to enjoy

full of energy*

*nasty & powerful* * dirt & grit of extreme*

Rotten soup


Extreme Noise & Racket

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: Showing a woodland/forest, I'm assuming the picture is showing (a reference) 'it's not what's on the outside, it's what's inside. Displaying a beautiful image, but inside the picture is ugly & nasty music

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: The whole album
