Slavemaker / False

This small tape split is a total mystery to me. Because I didn`t know any of these bands (strange huh?). So we have here a double portion of powerviolence from French and Belgian bands. This is also pretty solid stuff, and I can`t wait to blast this tape! Side A – Slavemaker. What a wonderful discovery I have here, this music knocked me down! A powerful bass line and a wonderful killer guitar sound. Strong drums work and pissed-off vocal fits and sounds perfectly here. This record is overloaded with anger… Pumping energy oozes from every crevice… holy shit! Although … Continue reading Slavemaker / False

World Eater – Demo 2022

World Eater is a young but promising band from dark and cold Finland. This year these guys created and recorded their first 7 songs. Unfortunately, this release didn`t get much attention in the grind underground, so we will try to fix that. The mighty UK label Grindfather production took them on board and released a tape with this material. As far as I know, the label released a very limited amount of cassettes… so consider yourself lucky if you have this tape in your collection. Honestly, I like this small debut. Of course, this work is pretty short, but this … Continue reading World Eater – Demo 2022

Repulsione – Human Destruction Front

Double bass quartet Repulsione dropped a new album this summer. “Human Destruction Front” is almost 35 minutes of down-tuned bass & drums noise. But these tunes are hidden behind a wonderful cover, which was made by fantastic artist Silvia Blackened. This art looks very dark (like a look into the gloomy future), but on the other hand, this is also damn brutal work, which fits this music. So shall we spin this record loud? I think this Italian squad is special because they don`t love to follow the old rules. Repulsione is using not a usual approach, they are using … Continue reading Repulsione – Human Destruction Front

Gorupted / Gore

It`s gore time! Today I’m gonna review a new release of Surrogate rec. So this is a small tape release with the French brutal death/goregrind project Gorupted and Brazilian legends Gore. This is a pretty DIY release, with handmade doubling, cutting and everything else, and this cassette also has an OBI, which is not usual. I must admit this is a nice small touch. But let’s get straight to the noise! Gorupted is a new name in our underground, this one-man band project started 2 years ago, and already has two splits. As I already mention this is a mix … Continue reading Gorupted / Gore

RudeThing – Se viene galerna

“Se viene galerna” is a new mine-album of Spanish grinders RudeThing. I never heard of this band, but need to forgive me, I physically can`t cover every new release and band. So let`s see what we got here. The guys started 8 years ago in Palma city (it’s located on the island near Valencia), which shows us one thing “if you want to grind, you will find like-minded people even if you`re living on a small island”. I played this tape a couple times and figured out that our boys are big fans of hardcore. They mix it with grindcore … Continue reading RudeThing – Se viene galerna

Empyaema – Demo 1/2

Okay, boys and girls, this is my first acquaintance with Empyaema. This is a gore-oriented duo and it based in Seattle. Unfortunately, there is not much info about this band. In their discography, they already have two demos and split. Today I`m gonna listen to and review their debut material. Nasty cover arts are typical for goregrind bands, so it`s hard to surprise me with that, haha. But there is something unusual in the first two demos, both of them are stylistically different. Intriguing right? Demo #1 – raw, disgusting, and noisy. The material is pretty primitive but has a … Continue reading Empyaema – Demo 1/2
