Black Market Activities signs The Network

Official press release:

We are pleased to announce the addition of New Hampshire's The Network to the Black Market Activities roster. The group recorded their debut full-length, "This is Your Pig's Portrait" earlier this year with producer Jonny Fay of The Red Chord. The band also features Nate Johnson of Deadwater Drowning and Premonitions of War, who was actually in Deadwater with Fay back in the very begin of Black Market Activities. The disc also features guest vocal appearances by Backstabbers Incorporated's Ryan McKinney, Cannae's Adam DuLong and The Red Chord's Guy Kozowyk. Art duties for the album are being handled by Bob Peele (Suicide Note, The Dream is Dead) and the disc is tentatively scheduled to hit stores in January 2007.

The Network's style is brutal, spastic and chaotic, but not necessarily in the sense of most of the spazzy, screaming, grindcore bands coming out as of late. Although their sound and style is unmistakably their own, they take heavy influence from the roots of the chaotic movement-- vintage, chaotic hardcore, if you will. You can hear more than a little of the impact of bands like Deadguy, Coalesce, Turmoil, Refused and Bloodlet directly in the group's sound.

You can decide for yourself here.
