Endless Demise / Fiend

This would have to be my favorite Grindcoe split from 2017. Both bands released what I consider as some of their best material on this 7”. That is what makes this release especially good. Usually on a split one band will outdo the other, but on this release both of the bands play on par with each other. So let’s begin…  I have kept track of Fiend from the beginning, they never disappointed me. Their punching Grindcore is so awesome, it’s hard to find the words to describe the feeling. Blast by blast, riff by riff the sound will destroy … Continue reading Endless Demise / Fiend

We need more label to release Offal/VHS split!

Two bands from different parts of the globe united by their love of gore and Death Metal. VHS and Offal are joining forces for a split that will rip and tear all listeners to bloody chunks. Canadian Grinding Gore Metal meets Brazillian Corpse-grinding Death Metal on a split that shows each band paying homage to each others countries.

Limbs will be severed, ear drums will be massacred, this is … Continue reading We need more label to release Offal/VHS split!

LIFES – Treading Water (Here And Now Records)

Today we’ve got a 12” full length from the Wisconsin based two piece band LIFES. This is the bass and drums duo’s first full length release, co-released by themselves and Here And Now Records. They’ve brought us 18 tracks of noisey hardcore/powerviolence, and I’m always a sucker for two-piece bands, so lets check it out. This release starts really strong, with definite roots in powerviolence and a heavy dose of hardocre. The blast beats are solid, and pacing changes are on point, and the breakdowns are heavy. This pace keeps up for the first few minutes and it’s enjoyable, but … Continue reading LIFES – Treading Water (Here And Now Records)

Sneezing Pus / Vomi Noir

Funny fact I didn’t know about the existence of this split, until the moment when everything was ready and all of the labels got their copies. This is my failure as an underground journalist and I admit it, haha! So we have here a real gore release, I mean that this highly concentrated nasty poison will pleasantly melt the brains of the listeners. Both bands play in their own style and that makes this split very interesting and spicy. So let me introduce them… First is a new name in our putrid family – Sneezing Pus. This band is Spanish/Dutch … Continue reading Sneezing Pus / Vomi Noir
