Bandit – Warsaw (Cricket Cemetery Records)

I love and hate pre-orders. I really do. On one hand, it’s fun to get stuff in the mail you forgot about; on the other hand, sometimes I really want that fucking record in my hand. The latter was the case with Bandit’s new release – Warsaw. Bandit is a three piece outfit from Philly that’s known for their live shows; they typically wind up beating the shit out of each other in some fashion, and their vocalist is all over the place and constantly on the move. It’s always fun to catch a live clip from these guys – … Continue reading Bandit – Warsaw (Cricket Cemetery Records)

Tired of Everything – Silenced (To Live A Lie)

Today, we’ve got something pretty special! By now, you should all know about To Live A Lie (and if you don’t, you’re fucking up), run by Mr. Will Butler. He’s put out some of the best releases in grind and powerviolence, but this release by Tired of Everything is special – it’s got the man himself on vocals! Let’s take a look at the package – the whole thing is really simplistic (which is never a bad thing); it gets down to business. The front is just some black and white art with the band name, and the inside is … Continue reading Tired of Everything – Silenced (To Live A Lie)

Toxocariasis – Demo II (Destruktomusik)

Todays filthy noise comes from a duo from Toronto, Canada by the name of Toxocariasis. They’ve tagged themselves as “stupid fucking idiot goregrind”, and I love self deprecation, so I was pretty excited to get into this. This tape has all of the hallmarks of a good DIY cassette – paper labels on the tape, and a one side printed J-card that doesn’t have any unnecessary text or anything else. Does what’s on the tape speak for itself? This demo offers us 5 tracks of goregrind – right off the bat, I knew this was going to be a solid … Continue reading Toxocariasis – Demo II (Destruktomusik)

Slund / Maggot Bath

What is common in Australia and Slovenia? You should listen this release to understand it. Here is a split CD with two cute bands from opposite sides of our planet. When I first saw this stuff on the internet I was confused because of the cover art – the whole design is an ode to deadly form of smallpox. All of the images are really creepy, and it’s hard to believe how painful and discomforting this illness is. So I expected to hear some gore tunes, but I was mistaken. Both squads are playing grindcore, but not a classic one; … Continue reading Slund / Maggot Bath

Balance of Terror – World Laboratory (Ghastly Music)

Today’s offering is the debut record from Balance of Terror – This release is 8 tracks of brutal death metal from the north of France, put out by Ghastly Music. This came to me packaged up in a professionally done CD – admittedly, it’s been a long time since I’ve actually opened a new CD (I’ve been spoiled by records and cassettes), but this has the look and feel of a very well put together release. Sadly, the global postal system STILL hasn’t figured out how to not break things… Anyway. I really like the art – to me, it … Continue reading Balance of Terror – World Laboratory (Ghastly Music)

Yakisoba – Embryonic Oozing

This spring, gore blast from Italy released its second work. This work is full of maggots and purulent stench, and the guys from Rectal Purulence Recs noticed that, liked it, and released it. This CDr release looks pretty primitive, but sick. There are just a few photos of surgery and a image of helminths for the back cover. Nothing much as for gore theme, but we have what we have. Regardless, I can assure you that the music inside sounds much uglier and brutal that this cover picture looks. Embryonic Oozing is 7 minutes of gorenoise that will make you … Continue reading Yakisoba – Embryonic Oozing

Psychoneurosis – The Fall Of Humanity (Selfmadegod rec)

Only a lazy fan of extreme music hasn’t heard that Psychoneurosis is back. After doing a successful split with AG and a bunch of cool gigs, these guys finally recorded a new album – this news cheers me up. Then, Selfmadegod Rec posted a preview song “Brexshit”… fuck…that was a brain-crashing song. So I started to wait for the whole album, and a few month later “The Fall Of Humanity” was in my hands… I guess Psychoneurosis tried to prepare/warn listeners about unexpected fast and ugly grind fights, that why they started with and elegant, atmospheric, and slow intro. I … Continue reading Psychoneurosis – The Fall Of Humanity (Selfmadegod rec)

This was the line-up from “Thanks for yur hostility” and “Humarrogance” times so you know what to … Continue reading Split 12" Agathocles, /H.407 is fucking out!

Razgruha – Money Power Greed

I don`t know why but, the Grind scene in Bulgaria is very poor. There are just a small bunch of extreme squads and Razgruha is one of them. This band is not so new, they began their escapades in 2011 in Sofia (Bulgaria). 2017 was a big year for these boys, they finally release their debut album “Money Power Greed”. As far as I know Razgruha made everything on their own, I mean recording, mixing and even releasing… I must say that is true DIY spirit and I appreciate it. As for the music… These guys used all the attributes … Continue reading Razgruha – Money Power Greed
