I know I'm a little late on this but- I was just introduced to this band and I really like it a lot. Hipster black metal for skinny kids that like hardcore? Sure. It's still fucking great. Bone Awl are a 2 piece raw black metal band from the Bay Area of California. Their sound is very primitive, noisy and not really black metal at all. There are blast beats in most of the songs and lots of punk-sounding riffage, which display Bone Awl's interest in hardcore punk. They've released quite a few Demos, Splits, Cassettes and EP's and one full length (A lot is out of print) since starting in 2002, most of which were released by Bone Awl's own Klaxon Records; You can buy their newest 7" and a few tapes there. I'm just going to upload their 2007 LP "Meaningless Leaning Mess", which is their best recorded stuff, I think.
