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

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

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 … Continue reading Krupskaya (09.02.18)

Krupskaya / Foible Instinct (7 Degrees Records)

This beautiful (at first look) split is very meaningful for both bands. Both bands are celebrating pretty respectful anniversary of 10 years of cooperative work since they have started making their own glory and concerts on stages of different countries. One of the strongest sides for this split it’s a design that has a very high quality and beauty, this vinyl makes a real pleasure to hold it inhands. Also this release reminds me a coin and as you may know, coin always has 2 sides. The same as this split that has its’ own side of this vinyl, it’s a … Continue reading Krupskaya / Foible Instinct (7 Degrees Records)

Sandokhan / Krupskaya (7 Degrees Records)

I love when splits have completely different bands (different in their sound and style) it makes such releases more interesting and varied. Split LP Sandokhan / Krupskaya is a good example. From one side we get german simplicity and perseverance and on the other hand mad english sight on grindcore. In addition to the highlights in the stylistic diversity this split also good with its look. The cover reminds me those test pictures in psychologist office, where they show some blurred image ask thatwhat you see there. Silver painted logos look very neat and nice (I would even say that … Continue reading Sandokhan / Krupskaya (7 Degrees Records)

Krupskaya – Symbiosis Through Decay (Ignore This Records)

This seven-inch was waiting for its moment for a long time. I could not find the right words that would describe this madness, and I must say I feel very sorry for that. “Symbiosis Through Decay” was released quite a while ago, but as for me it will never loose its relevance and its specificity. Krupskaya is the band that is completely insane even if you put it in one row with other wild collectives of Great Britain.A very strict and dark art. All in dark colors. Looking at this piece of plastic and paper, I could not help thinking … Continue reading Krupskaya – Symbiosis Through Decay (Ignore This Records)
