SOOM – Джєбарс (Robustfellow)

Sometimes, just sometimes, I feel the need for slow, hellish music. Sometimes, I just want to hear something that is viciously callous and devastating. Thankfully, noise-terrorists SOOM recently released their second album Джєбарс, to be honest I expect a lot from this full length… Chief of the Robustfellow label gave me this tape for review. I must say, I was really surprised with its looks and design. This is some truly nerdy stuff; the colors, the form, the way the whole hardcover connected – it’s really something. All polygraphy was made in Ukraine but the tapes were made and recorded … Continue reading SOOM – Джєбарс (Robustfellow)

Krupskaya – Dawn of Shattered Silence

Many Grind fans will say that the genre can come in two flavors. First – humoristic, goofy and silly. Second – extremely fast brutal and technical. British Grinders Krupskaya belong to the second kind of grind. These maniacs are really talented and fast, but they do not sound like aNapalm Death or Terrorizer copy, they found their own way in this music. So this piece of noise is not really an album and I will explain to you why. All the songs were released previously, the guys just re-recorded them and changed some parts in them. Also there is a … Continue reading Krupskaya – Dawn of Shattered Silence

Chepang – Barriga De Verme

Before we get started with the review of this release, I think it’s really important that we talk about Chepang as a group first. Chepang is definitely one of the more interesting (if not the most, if we’re honest) grindcore bands out there at the moment. What really captures most people’s attention is the fact that they use two drummers. It’s pretty fucking insane to see two maniacs blasting at the same time and to do it perfectly; unfortunately, this is where most people’s understanding of the group stops. Yeah, it’s goddamn impressive to have more drummers than guitar players … Continue reading Chepang – Barriga De Verme

Psudoku – Deep Space Psudokument (Selfmadegod Records)

“Captain’s log, Stardate 4040.7. We received emergency signal from our satellite in AL23000F sector. An identifier life form tried to contact us. GGGG is on the way to mystical adventure”…Psudoku is one of those extraordinary bands which are hard to understand, and if they have not hooked you from the first time, then it is unlikely that in the future you will return to them. This noise is so hot and spicy… it’s the audio version of really bad drug tip, when your brain turns inside out. Listening to this, there is a lot of confusion (positive confusions of course) … Continue reading Psudoku – Deep Space Psudokument (Selfmadegod Records)

Ona Snop / Chinsniffer

Attention hardcore freaks! This noise will melt your mind! This double attack from UK became a very pleasant and positive surprise for me. The noise inside is unusual and very crazy, the effect of these tunes can be compared to strong hallucinogenic drugs, haha! Just look at the cover and you will understand what I’m talking about. The image reminds me of some classic pieces by Salvador Dali. The artist who had drawn this was surely not sober and mad, haha! This short story begins with 4 songs of Ona Snop. The shy guys from Leeds managed to kick my … Continue reading Ona Snop / Chinsniffer

Wojczech / Krupskaya

There is a strange thing with this split. I looked at this image a lot of times, but my brain refused to define this picture as cover art for grindcore release, haha! First what I thought was “oh boy this is, probably a new SunO))) album”, but I didn’t find the right logo. Indeed, this piece of art is pretty unusual for most grindcore acts, but if you check out the discography of Krupskaya you will find a strong visual connection with their previous works. Edgar Tumpkin (the drummer of Krupskaya) is in charge of all this dark madness. I … Continue reading Wojczech / Krupskaya

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)

Antigama – The Insolent (Selfmadegod)

Antigama is a band who certainly stands out in grind scene. Their focus are more on the technical side of things, and lesser on punk aspects. I believe thats why this group is not for everyone, and even less for everyday listening. Antigama really glorifies their home country of Poland. (how many other famous extreme bands can you name from PL who does that?), I don’t have any idea, if Polish people really gives a fuck about that, haha!). The Insolent is Antigamas 7th album in their discography, and makes a nice impression. The whole design is a projection of … Continue reading Antigama – The Insolent (Selfmadegod)

Psudoku – Planetarisk Sudoku (Selfmadegod Records)

The Grind world is far different than it was just 20 or even 10 years ago. New bands have been born, new bands who have expanded the horizons of the genre. Now this scene is full of weird, interesting and really crazy bands. But, one of the most unusual projects was born in Norway. This country is well known by their Black Metal scene, but Grind (and Crust) is still supernatural for that land. Why? I believe that scientists still do not have an answer to this heavy question. So what is Psudoku? First of all it’s a one man … Continue reading Psudoku – Planetarisk Sudoku (Selfmadegod Records)

Krupskaya (09.02.18)

Hi brothers! How are you guys? Hope that you packed a few fresh pair of pants for your small journey Alex: Absolutely! The washing machine is on, the set is sounding tight – really looking forward to it. Riley: Besides a short stint across the UK with my old band some twelve years ago, I’ve never actually been on tour, so it’s a bit of a strange mix between excitement and nerves at the moment. Matt: To be honest, there’s been a few details of the tour that have caused a bit more stress than usual. But now everything’s sorted … Continue reading Krupskaya (09.02.18)

Chepang – Dadhelo

So it finally happened. One of the strangest, experimental and noisy bands of the present just released their first full album! They called their own music “immigrindcore” (I guess it`s because they are from Nepal). And I agree with that because these grind maniacs are growing and growing and their music has become more chaotic. Their noises can’t be tagged just like simple grindcore, this beautiful mess stands out from usual meaning of that genre. These guys don’t hesitate to use many elements of deferent extreme genres (which is really cool). For this album our Nepalese friends have recorded 14 … Continue reading Chepang – Dadhelo

News from Chepang`s camp!

The “Dadhelo: A Tale Of Wildfire” is now available! “The first full length assault from Nepal’s “immigrindcore” battalion. Driven by breakneck dual drum blasting and the blazing fervor of their message delivered from the turmoil of their homeland. A twisted cacophony of riff carnage and the desperate howling frenzy of multiple singers. Impassioned Ghurka grindcore commandos igniting a cleansing fire.” You can buy this album thru Nerve Altar (USA) or Holy Goat Records (Europe)  Continue reading News from Chepang`s camp!
