"The Fantastic 5 / Malcontents 7" vinyl release"

There's some serious moodiness from these students of punk, each of whom contributes two good tracks. THE FANTASTIC 5 take the A-side by storm with the dark and minimal, "Hate To See You Go," and "American Wasteland" is their minor chord anthem. These guys have sophistication! THE MALCONTENTS purvey a slowed-up droney sound (imagine an American pop-punk MY BLOODY VALENTINE) with their think piece, "Street Girl," and then end this perfect 4-tracker with a cover of WIRE'S "The 15th," originally from their rarely explored 154 album!" - available at

"Fantastic Five/Malcontents - split 7 inch"

The Malcontents do a nice cover of "The 15th" from the classic Wire "154" LP, and their other song is a decent original guitar rock song filtered through a hazy Replacements mud machine; you can hear a better sounding record looking for a way out of the clouds. The Fantastic 5 songs are faster paced, but have a similar feel; again, the production could use some work, but the song "American Wasteland" shows their potential for both rocking out and coming up with a chorus that will get the kids dancing.

The Fantastic 5 Saves the universe part 1
Dead by Easter - coming November 2008



Spawned in the wasteland better known as Miami, The Fantastic 5 roared onto the death rock scene in 2002 with their debut album ....Saves the Universe; Part One. The band is held in high regard for their legendary super high octane shows. Audiences minds are blown clean by the bands unadulterated blistering live performances driven by the raw edge of guitarist Roxana Camacho's lead guitar, Alex Nelson's gut busting bass, Steve "Dog" Monell's thunderous drums and lead singer Tony Nassif's monumental soaring vocals and ass tight rhythm guitar. The band's latest album, Dead by Easter, joins lead singer Tony's punishing growls with crushing drums to create a disc overflowing with sludgy anthems that drive themselves deep into the heart of the listener. With standout tracks like "Stabbed on the Metrorail", "Automatic Heart," and the title track, and with the band geared up to record more fan favorites like "Ultrasonic" look for The Fantastic 5 to be a major factor in the death rock landscape for years to come.
