Finally, I found some time to sit down and write about the last album from Greek grinders Dephosphorus. First of all, I want to highlight that this work is very dark. This darkness starts right from the front cover and ends only with the last riff in Blessed In A Hail song. We all know how people of Greece love black metal and dark things. These sub-genres have a influences in, almost, all music in that country. I can name ton names of crust, metal, grind bands that are using a lot of black and dark metal. And I really … Continue reading Dephosphorus – Impossible Orbits
I received a very short and uninformative e-mail asking me if I was interested in reviewing the new Head Brain Blockade album. I had never heard of that band before, but I know that No Bread rec has good taste in music, so I figured why the hell not write a few words about this CD. A couple of weeks later the promo arrived in the mail. When I opened the box and give a first look at this digipack I recognized the artist that draw this cover art. That is my old buddy Jon from Kaliningrad, I can identify … Continue reading Head Brain Blockade – Destruction of Principle of Life
2018 was a great year for Brazilian grinders Xico Picadinho… Some shows, a lot of rehearsals, but most importantly – a new album. These guys spent two years preparing it and the result is right in my hands. This CD has a good art, maybe not usual for grindcore bands, but it looks cool. As for refill, we have here 7 songs including a Nasum cover. So let’s dig into this “Ode Ao Apodrecimento” album! First, what my ears caught was a really strong death metal influence. I think I can even use a deathgrind tag here. A lot of … Continue reading Xico Picadinho – Ode Ao Apodrecimento

The Spanish extreme music scene is full of cool bands. Now I’m currently holding the third album of Deathgrinders Himura. First off I want to highlight the main theme of this LP, gloomy end of the human race – what can be better? After a few times listening through, I can clearly say that these guys stayed true to their style, the whole album sounds pretty similar to their previous work “Exterminio”. But, that’s not a bad thing, sometimes I like a monumental position, without switching between styles and genres. So let’s unpack this vinyl and put it on my … Continue reading Himura – Alerta Biológica
Greetings! It’s a huge pleasure for me to do this small interview, so how are you doing guys? What’s new, old or dead? Dr C: Salutations! We are still going, even though our public mortuary presence might indicate otherwise… as we say in Swedish: like lever! In 2019 I feel that the old stuffy carcass will start to shift its weight a little more and you might see a tad bit more activity. Which is relative to the flat-line you’re seeing now – make of that what you will. We’ll have a few public autopsies planned for the year, so … Continue reading General Surgery (28.03.19)
Formed in 1989, Depression became one of the pilgrims in the German Grind underground. I don’t know why, but this band is not as well known as they deserves. What a pity, but on the other hand they are still here, they play what they love to and that shows. We have here their release from 2008, all of the songs (except 1 bonus track) were used for a split with Death Metal band Paganizer. But that was more than 10 (!!!) years ago, and beyond that, this material was released only on CD and tape format. Thanks to Power … Continue reading Depression – Unglaube
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
Vomit Spell is a newish act from Germany that combines both the ferocity and irreverence of grindcore and the raw approach of death metal. The result is everything you have wanted combined with an aesthetic that is less innovative than it is tested and true. Listen/order Continue reading Vomit Spell – Demo is out!
I received information about this gig at the end of the last fall, and needless to say that was one of the best presents for me. Sad fact but, Crust/Grind bands are avoiding our country, so every Grind party in Kiev is a big thing to me. The news about this show with Extreme Noise Terror and Desecration literally crushed me, I was as happy as a teenager when he finally got his got laid for the first time, haha! I started to follow to all of the updates, all the news and rumors, this gig seemed to be huge. … Continue reading 23.02 Extreme Noise Terror / Desecration – Volume Club (Kyiv)

Meshing together the disgusting sounds of death metal and grindcore, Vomit Spell offer up a sickening and vile seven track demo. With viscera soaked riffs and ever cranium caving drumming along with rabid and ever bloodied vocals, Vomit Spell gnash at your flesh from beginning to end. There are no gimmicks and certainly no fluff as what you get is seven straight tracks of brutalizing metal. With no reprieve, no pause and no room to breathe in the stagnant vile air, Vomit Spell submerge you in grimy and crusted death grind from beginning to end. This tape released by Lower Class … Continue reading Debut release from Vomit Spell is ready!

These Houston monsters of Grindcore mayhem refuse to settle for anything other than pure, unleashed Grindcore (Naplam Death/Carcass) tinged with a raw death metal punishment of classic Kreator. This new recording devastates with whirlwind, raw guitars and guttural puking vocals by founding member Dave Callier. Bryan Fajardo‘s precise, jaw dropping attack on the drums delivers as always, melting ears and stirring a sense of pure awe at his talent. One of the best in extreme music. This band relies on an absolute dedication and love for the genre. Truly one of the best going, and likely, one of the best … Continue reading P.L.F.- Jackhammering Deathblow of Nightmarish Trepidation! CD version!

Today brings us a CD from 4 piece death grind band Anthropic. This crew has been around for a few years playing live shows, but this is their first release that isn’t a demo. Let’s see how these Buffalo, NY natives did for their first release!The artwork for the CD is pretty simplistic – like it’s namesake Tatanka (meaning buffalo in the Sioux language), the cover is graced with a rotting buffalo. I think it’s kind of funny that these guys are from Buffalo and named the release “buffalo” in another language, but other than that, I’m not really seeing … Continue reading Anthropic – Tatanka
