Gratitude Journal

I am so happy and grateful that I could do so many things yesterday and keep going even though I was so tired by the end of the evening. I kept a good attitude and wasn’t so anxious about things that I wanted to do compared with some things that I had to do.

Singular – F.E.I.A.R. – 7th April 2019

Cat #: 197TZM

All instruments, songs, lyrics, recorded, mixed and mastered by Mierul.
Release by Terr-Record (MAS), Tenzenmen (THA/AUS)
Artwork by Jeremy Famir (jeremyfamir.deviantart.com)
Live show line up: Farouq, Boyo, Awie, Kay, Ayob, Mierul.

“Ultimately, F.E.I.A.R. feels like an exploration of some of the many sides of derangement, letting each track speak to a different nuance on the multifaceted front of devolving into chaos while proving independently musically striking. The album’s riff-mania quickly gets pretty alluring. 5/5 Stars” – Capturedhowls.com

“Chaotic and brilliant all in one” – Thisnoiseisours.com

“The album is a real evil, genuine chaos and energy spurting the fountain!” – Homo-faber.net

“Any of you fans of more forward-thinking Converge style blackened hardcore with angular dissonant music that then gets buried in noise-laden blast beats, under eerie vocals that can switch to throat shattering shrieks on a dime, Singular needs to be on your radar” – Uniteasia.org

Daighila/Grinding Halt – 28th January 2013

Cat #: 120TZM

Daighila from Malaysia delivers two tracks of early Envy inspired hardcore mixed with some Neil Perry in the mix. You know the stuff when screamo wasn’t a curse word yet and this sort of music was delivered by punks. Well. It’s still around. Hectic, fast, melodic and with passion.

This will be Grinding Halt’s 2nd split 7” this year and here they deliver their longest and heaviest track to date. Three riffs is all it takes really. Think Eyehategod with heavy, distorted vocals. Blunt and without any thrills.

Split label release with Graanrepubliek Records (Netherlands) and Bullwhip Records (Malaysia)

Fanzui Xiangfa/Daighila – 1st June 2010

Cat #: 028TZM

The Fanzui Xiangfa / Daighila split 7″ came about after Fanzui Xiangfa’s 2009 SE Asia Tour. The two bands played together in Malaysia and Singapore discovering their common love for hardcore and devotion to the DIY scene. Fanzui Xiangfa’s side is a collection of newer songs in their typical oldschool style reminiscent of DS-13. While Daighila brings three raging screamo tracks that encompass elements from many different classic schools of hardcore. Taken together the split represents two of the most exciting bands from China and Malaysia.
