Having perfected their distinctive and inimitable musical expression along a path that spans their 15-year long career, PROCESSOFGUILT are today one of the main driving forces on the Portuguese underground. Delivering massively heavy riffs on top of a punishingly precise, quasi-industrial, rhythm section, the band possesses a unique intensity that attracts listeners from a broad spectrum of music genres.
Vastly experienced when it comes to playing live – having even shared the stage with bands like Godflesh, Cult of Luna or Napalm Death and spots at festivals as Roadburn, Amplifest, Reverence Valada or VOA – their performances are pure displays of ferocity that leave no one indifferent.
In 2017, with the release of Black Earth, PROCESSOFGUILT reafirm their musical vision as one of no paralell in the Portuguese and European underground.

Come horns and trumpets, come echo and percussion. The descent into the subterranean fields is easy. But to retrace your steps into heaven’s air: There is the trouble, there is the toil.
Beheaded Totem, the second album by the enigmatic Portuguese ensemble HHY & The Macumbas, leads us straight into the damp caves of our minds. Their 2014 debut Throat Permission Cut was described as “a massive synapses bombardment in a short circuit between Glenn Branca and Adrian Sherwood,” and yes: HHY & The Macumbas have continued their march into the undiscover’d countries of psychoacoustics. Febrile, haunting and at times overwhelming, Beheaded Totem is nothing short of a dream for the necro-tourist. Cerebral and alluring. Toxic. Welcome to the four-dimensional meltdown. And as the nightly creatures prepare themselves to join HHY & The Macumbas in a final Danse Macabre, they might realize what they’re in for: to never find their way back to the corrosions of daylight. But, then again, some sacrifices come with joy.
