Mangle / Fetus Christ

And we are here again with another very British split. I really don’t know why people from UK so love to create such violent music, that still a mystery for me. But, I won’t lie – I really like that barbaric side of that country and its citizens. Split 7” Mangle / Fetus Christ will be topic of this day… These bands deserve to be in my “badass bands from the tea island” list. Both covers are unattractive but they hide some really dreadful violence inside… The beginners Mangle punch me right into the face with just a first and … Continue reading Mangle / Fetus Christ

Famine / Art Of Burning Water (Dead Heroes Records)

Recently I was flooded with a huge load of releases and it’s took some time get this this small split – apologies to the label and bands! This split is presenting the extreme scene of UK, with its fast and slow sides… funny thing is, I tried to listen digital version of this split few times and every time I was bored to death. It sounds so blank and dry, must say I was unpleasantly surprised. BUT, the vinyl version sounds much better (thanks to the analog gods), it has life energy inside, so this small piece of black wax … Continue reading Famine / Art Of Burning Water (Dead Heroes Records)

ACxDC / Goolagoon (Dead Heroes rec)

Make America violent again! I guess thats how we can refer to this split. US hardcore/violence guys from ACxDC and Goolagoon put their forces together to finish off our minds. Good violence should have nice a face… So besides the extreme content, this release has very interesting and lovely look. The vinyl has pleasant splatter structure with warm colors. Inside of sleeve (which depict two covers) you will find a poster with both bands, stickers and much more. With all of this, my tactile needs were satisfied. Now I hope to satisfy my ears with a good and loud portion … Continue reading ACxDC / Goolagoon (Dead Heroes rec)

Bloody Phoenix / Lycanthrophy / Skunk / Disturbance Project (Dead Heroes rec)

It has been years since this album was released, I wanted this LP so much, but only this year I got a chance to get this beautiful beast, haha! Yeah I know, all the bands on this release are bloody good, I don’t need to go into detail about them… But the names were not the first thing that caught my eye. Look at this artwork, this image is absolutely killer! It was made by Szymon Siech ( and this work perfectly fits with this noise and incredibly conveys the atmosphere of madness from all 4 bands. But, enough about … Continue reading Bloody Phoenix / Lycanthrophy / Skunk / Disturbance Project (Dead Heroes rec)

Fissure / Shackles (Dead Heroes rec)

It’s rare to see such lovely looking vinyl – a black base with white streaks/metastases… of course this is not a regular pressing, and I must admit that Dead Heroes has good taste. As for the bands and music, we have here two squads from different sides of the globe. Hardcore/pv boys Fissure are from the US and chaotic grinders Shackles are from Australia. Everything sounds familiar? Maybe, but let’s put this 10” split on our turntable and check it one more time. I can call California’s Fissure a good example of the modern hardcore/pv wave. Their sound is clear, … Continue reading Fissure / Shackles (Dead Heroes rec)

Controlled Existence / Headless Death (Dead Heroes rec)

Be careful boys and girls, this split is very spicy. This is the place where Czech fastness meets with Australian primitivism. This release sounds like a weird kind of yin and yang, on one side we have ferocious evil and on the other side we have same evil but more angry and barbaric. As you already understand, this is a very strong release, with which you need to be more careful. So let’s taste this piece of noise!  Czech fellas from Controlled Existence recorded some very “unpleasant” (for someone of course) material. This noise is fast like a rocket and … Continue reading Controlled Existence / Headless Death (Dead Heroes rec)

Gets Worse – Struggle (Dead Heroes rec)

At first I thought that this album, with lovely goat on the cover was new material from Gets Worse, but I was wrong. This LP is just a compilation of recent material. I want to assure you that is not a bad thing and I will tell you why… “Struggle” has a specific concept, this thing looks really massive. The last four EP’s (White Horse, Yellow Belly, The Blues and Blacked Out) were gathered together on one LP. So you will be bombarded by 40 minutes of powerful material. But that’s not all, the more you look at this image … Continue reading Gets Worse – Struggle (Dead Heroes rec)

Derbe Lebowski – S/T (Dead Heroes Records)

This band can`t be tagged as some classic or old school Grind or Powerviolence. These dudes love to experiment, that’s why it’s hard to set them in usual music category. So what is Derbe Lebowski and why are they seem unusual to me… Let me start from the history note. This weird name first appeared in Germany somewhere in 2011. Everything started pretty usual, some friends came together with a strong desire to play something heavy. 1 Year later they released their first work “Remove Your Mask”. Back then Derbe Lebowski sounded more like Powerviolence, but with time these guys … Continue reading Derbe Lebowski – S/T (Dead Heroes Records)

Teething – We Will Regret This Someday

A year ago the Spanish noise machinery Teething released their first blasting full length album in the bands history of musical assaults). They put a lot of lifeblood and energy into this monster, and it shows in their tunes. Teething is a modern fusion of jumping style Hardcore and Grindcore, mixed in with fast and sharp groovy parts, heavy breakdowns and clean production. The coverart is made like a very bizarre collage of disturbing images from newspaper clippings, surrounding a dreadful main chacacter with beautiful eyes, and a nice attractive colgate smile, haha (Just kidding). The ungodly combination of bleak … Continue reading Teething – We Will Regret This Someday

Yacøpsæ / Slight Slappers (Dead Heroes Records)

Oh guys, after all that “new wave” of powerviolence, hardcore etc, this split has become kind of like a good portion of cold beer after a hard working day for me. Both bands are well-known legends and don’t need any introduction, they are loved even in the far off Nepal countrysides. But I need to know more about the photo of the cover art of this split. I suppose that the photo was taken somewhere in Africa but it reminded me a human zoo park in Belgium (yes in the 50’s in “civilized Europe” there were savage people held from … Continue reading Yacøpsæ / Slight Slappers (Dead Heroes Records)

Lycanthrophy / Chiens

Let’s keep on digging into our collection from our Czech friends Dead Heroes Records. This time we will turn back the dial for a moment and make a review of the Lycanthrophy & Chiens split. I have no idea who Jubsss is but this guy definitely has a talent in drawing! Just look how interesting he represented different social diseases in just one picture. Here we’ve got the theme of rotten religion, worldwide conspiracy (I judge like this looking on the all-seeing eye), nazism and corruption.Very good work, at least the visual part of the release is worthy, hehe)) Czech … Continue reading Lycanthrophy / Chiens

Mečem Naplocho – s/t

What a pity that these guys have disbanded but, what we can do… Here in my hands I hold their heritage – the vinyl containing two EPs (2014/2015) of these Czech hooligans. When I took a first look at this release, I was very surprised – there is only a few chances to see a 7″ vinyl in a gatefold package. It is probably no surprise to anyone there are female vocals in a Czech band (I even suppose that local bands are famous for this), and as you can understand, Mečem Naplocho have female vocals too. By the way, … Continue reading Mečem Naplocho – s/t
