Art As Catharsis | Supporting Australia's underground music scene

This is a label based in Australia that promotes the wide array of underground music over there. the label is very prolific and outrageously eclectic, running the gamut of experimental music. From mad free jazzcore, to psychedelic mid eastern drone, to blackened hardcore, ritualistic post rock, and quite literally everything in between. Just put out a 2016 sampler https://artascatharsis.bandcamp.com/album/2016-releases

Some choice cuts

Kurushimi - Kurushimi (Free jazz, improve, extreme metal, noise, whatever the ****)

Hashshashin - nihsahshsaH (Psychedelic drone, Meditative stuff, prog, whatever the ****)

Siberian Hell Sounds - Svengali (black metal, hardcore, mathcore, grind, post metal, whatever the ****[)

Space Bong - The Death of Utopia (doom metal, sludge, drone, whatever the ****)

Edit: this was a copy/paste of a post of mine on another forum that censors swears, so I got the asterisks in the link leading to nowhere. Woops

Don't know them too well, but I'm constantly seeing adds from them on facebook. I did enjoy last year's Hashashin album quite a bit.

i was at an adrift for days show and the guitarist who i think owns or runs the label was selling some of their music, bought something blindly and it was some weird sounding jazz ep and randomly and for no reason they start to play about 20 seconds of beat it jazz version by Micheal Jackson, it just made no sense whatsoever

Hi friends, thanks for the kind words.

If any of you like doom, we dropped this compilation of (what we consider top be) the best Australian doom out there:

Yeah that's me, though I have absolutely no idea what release you could be talking about... that doesn't sound like anything we've released.

We have Kurushimi who are really strange free-jazz improve with elements of doom, hiphop, prog, dub (etc), but the music its pretty serious and intense... and also they have no physical releases.

Was it Killsong? 20-minute bizarre, rambling prog epics with a sort of theatrical spoken word component? Certainly one of the weirder things we've done.

Same. There's only so much one can hope for anymore.
