Agathocles ‎– Fascination Of Mutilation

I really love when such old and rare stuff released again and released in the proper way. Here is a tape version of one very old (30 years!) Flexi 7”.  This small cassette looks awesome, yes it has another cover art, but I see no problem with it. Also, everything was made right with great quality, screen printed logos on the shell, the cover surprised me a bit, it was made on some kind of plastic but not on paper. To be short this is a top-notch production. As for the noise… This is an ancient live recording that was … Continue reading Agathocles ‎– Fascination Of Mutilation

Convulsions / Six​-​Score

This split may be old but this material is still hot and actual. We are going to talk about awesome bands today – Convulsions from Spain and Six-Score from Austria. Both proved that they can play grindcore, their previous releases are strong proof of that. This small split starts with 6 short compositions from Convulsions. As always guys managed to create a really strong shit! These songs are rich in pumping energy and crunchy sound. The sound is heavy and tasty. The guitar tone is pleasantly low and buzzing, the bass is loud, blasts are fast with some strong punk … Continue reading Convulsions / Six​-​Score

Trachoma – Surgical Methods for Infectious Diseases

Trachoma is not well known (yet) band from Brazil, they performed with a first EP a year ago (or maybe less), and that`s all that I know about them… Before they released their first full album that blasted my brain, haha! So again, this band is a crazy duo with totally sick minds, haha! Of course, all material, starting from the cover and ending with the last note, has a classical, for gore genre, rotten theme. Blood, guts, sick maniacs, and so on… nothing new? Maybe, but that is not a bad thing. Must say I was surprised when I … Continue reading Trachoma – Surgical Methods for Infectious Diseases

Formless Master – First Strike (Wise Grinds Records)

Formless Master is a pretty new name on the scene, but don’t be fooled the guys behind this band are very experienced. Featuring members of Gridlink, Mortalized, Deterioration, and Invidiosus this is a real killing machine! They colled their style as a “karate-grind” and you know what, this is the best definition of this music, haha! First Strike has a typic (as for grindcore genre) artwork. There are so many elements from different but cool Asian movies. Everything looks simple but nice, and I think these types of covers are not the worst. Now let`s see what this US/Japanese team … Continue reading Formless Master – First Strike (Wise Grinds Records)
