Negativ Null – Kategorisch Aggressiv

Negativ Null was a band from Germany, these guys were oriented on the extreme hardcore genre (namely powerviolence). “Kategorisch Aggressiv” is the last their work and this sound bomb was dropped in 2017. First of all, this is an excellent example of a modern pv with great old-school artwork and with a bit more than 2 dozen songs. Second is its wicked spirit! Yep guys, this is a f***g punch right into the face. All these songs are full of hate and aggression, damn good stuff must say. All production is solid, the sound is sharp and clear (however, I … Continue reading Negativ Null – Kategorisch Aggressiv

Sick Destroyer – promo 2021

Sick Destroyer is one more name in the legion of the Czech grindcore scene. This promo is something like a sneak peek at their future splits with US noise monsters Reeking Cross, Tantalum, and Czech bombers Insistent. This material is short (all tracks are under 1 minute) but very powerful and live. Sorry to say but, I don`t know the artist who drew this art, but he did a damn sick job! This rotten remains and maggots in the suit remind us how people can hide their real faces behind the good looks. Really lovely cover… The music part of … Continue reading Sick Destroyer – promo 2021

System Collapse – From Arrogance To Ruins

From Arrogance To Ruins is a 3d release from the young German punks System Collapse. Guys are playing blackened crust with strong influences from Tragedy, M40, and mode aggressive crust like Vision of War. This tape has a typical design for the crust genre. Black and white colors, the image of the huge factory that is polluting our air, and so on. Looks like guys printed these cassettes only for friends and for promotion because there were made only 30 copies. Anyway despite the modesty, the release looks good. This story begins with a really nice and atmospheric intro, these … Continue reading System Collapse – From Arrogance To Ruins

Statist — … And Joy With Violence)))

Statist is a pretty new band from my home town Kyiv. I was really happy when I heard the promo and caught them on stage. The material was amazingly strong. Sometime later guys finally released a full EP ” … And Joy With Violence)))”. The cover art is odd, ripped off the chicken head, I guess I missed some point, sorry for that. Anyway, the tape looks pretty nice with a simple design, and good sound (which is rare, because the quality depends on many factors of manufacturing). In total, we got 14 songs of grindviolence with some lite metal … Continue reading Statist — … And Joy With Violence)))

Inopexia / Dysmenhorrea

Today you won’t surprise anyone with a Gore split. This genre became pretty popular around the world and now we a have a legion of new ugly names. Of course it’s really hard to pick up something interesting among all of the old/new/future Gore releases, but I managed to do that, haha! So the tape for we have prepared for this evening is Inopexia / Dysmenhorrea (released by No Bread rec). Interesting thing, this split has a beautiful look but ugly slimy guts (the music). The yellow cassette perfectly combines with light colors of the cover. This is a professionally … Continue reading Inopexia / Dysmenhorrea

Chepang​/​Test (Lower Class Kids Records)

It’s been a while since this 7” split was released, but the tape version showed up only a few month ago. And now I’m the happy owner of it, haha! First of all this cassette looks great, nice high quality paper, colored shell and not the worst sound. Lower Class Kids Records did a good job with this release. I guess there is not much that I can write about these bands, both names are big enough and famous, both have a lot of great records and so on. That’s why I don’t want to tire you with a long … Continue reading Chepang​/​Test (Lower Class Kids Records)

Vomit Spell – Demo

It’s not a secret that the Deathgrind genre is very popular, more and more new names appear in the underground over the past few years. Vomit Spell is one of these names. Honestly, this 5 piece squad surprised me with its debut demo. The productions is raw, but not awful, and the sound is low and rotten. I listened this material about 10 times before I started to write these words. I did find myself thinking that this band has more of a Death Metal sound rather than from Grindcore. Punky and punchy Death Metal riffs meet Tupa Tupa beats … Continue reading Vomit Spell – Demo

Celophys – Fried Chordata

What do you know about the Sludge scene in Ukraine? Let me show you a small part of it. Celophys is a two piece band from the city of Cherkassy, and started to make noise in 2012. Since then they’ve released 3 full length albums and here they are again with a brand new full length. Their fourth album is named “Fried Chordata”, strange name, isn’t it? This band really loves the old times, I mean really old school times, haha. They used a lot of images of ancient creatures like dinosaurs, cephalopods, mollusks and now they evolved to The … Continue reading Celophys – Fried Chordata
