Agathocles / Capital Scum

This LP is a monument for 2 veteran bands from Belgium. All together they have more than 60 years of experience. They’ve been making Noise that pisses off your neighbors since the 80’s. I don’t really get the meaning of this cover art, but it looks awesome, especially with the orange vinyl it holds. Power it Up proves to us that they know how to make good looking releases once again. I’m honestly excited to hear the noise, so let’s open this Punk Pandora’s box!       Capital Scum is playing the same way they always have, with all … Continue reading Agathocles / Capital Scum

Cum Sock / Sebum Excess Production

I got this CDr with a bunch of others in a parcel from Whisky Warfare Records.I must say I was really excited to listen to it, because both names are familiar to me so I had a good feeling about it when I put this disc into my player. But I was disappointed, and here is why. I reviewed Cum Sock before, I remember that that material was full of joy and silly moments. So I expected to hear something like that… unfortunately, it didn’t happen like that. Please try to understand, this material isn’t bad… Guitar sounds good, vocals … Continue reading Cum Sock / Sebum Excess Production

Strange, Beautiful, and Fast – Takafumi Matsubara (Gurkha Commando Blast Team)

Only five short years ago, Takafumi Matsubara was told by a doctor that he would never play guitar again because of a brain infection. Matsubara looked him dead in the eye and said, “fuck that”. I might have made that last part up, but that MUST have happened because he just released one of the best grindcore records in recent memory. Had he stopped after the last Grindlink record, he would still be considered a legend, but this record solidifies it. Driven by the death of his friend Hee Chung from Unholy Grave, he’s produced 17 tracks of furious and … Continue reading Strange, Beautiful, and Fast – Takafumi Matsubara (Gurkha Commando Blast Team)

Endless Demise / Fiend

This would have to be my favorite Grindcoe split from 2017. Both bands released what I consider as some of their best material on this 7”. That is what makes this release especially good. Usually on a split one band will outdo the other, but on this release both of the bands play on par with each other. So let’s begin…  I have kept track of Fiend from the beginning, they never disappointed me. Their punching Grindcore is so awesome, it’s hard to find the words to describe the feeling. Blast by blast, riff by riff the sound will destroy … Continue reading Endless Demise / Fiend

We need more label to release Offal/VHS split!

Two bands from different parts of the globe united by their love of gore and Death Metal. VHS and Offal are joining forces for a split that will rip and tear all listeners to bloody chunks. Canadian Grinding Gore Metal meets Brazillian Corpse-grinding Death Metal on a split that shows each band paying homage to each others countries. VHS is tackling low budget Brazilian gore with odes to Satanic Attraction and Ritual of Death, while Offal brings an ode to Black Christmas and a Slaughter cover to the table. Limbs will be severed, ear drums will be massacred, this is … Continue reading We need more label to release Offal/VHS split!
