RIP Kleister – Skuld Releases

Skuld Releases_bffb

Our extreme condolences go out to the friends and family of Kleister from Skuld Releases in Germany. Kleister was one of the very few people that supported CTA and helped make our Through the Wires LP and subsequent European tours a reality, and we are forever in gratitude for the work and efforts he made on our behalf. The punk community has lost one of the most important people in its history as a subculture, and we are so thankful to be a part of his world, albeit for a short period in time.

Countdown To Armageddon, Through The Wires
One of the many great things about Killing Joke and Amebix is the way these two granddads of abrasive British filth have gotten more epic as the decades pass. Seattle’s Countdown To Armageddon reminds me of that same eroded, degraded angst. The trio’s latest full-length, Through The Wires, wraps spectral guitars around a terse, pulsing, post-punk rhythm section, then tops it with a crown of thorny blasphemy. Not to mention a bleakly melodic edge to offset its more scarifying, horrifying tendencies. Ethereal crust? Bring it the fuck on. – Jason Heller
