Split Agathocles/ Eristetyt/ Kuolema is out!

In November 2018 the three bands were on the road together in Finland, a total of 39 songs were recorded at the gig in Tampere, ingenious soundboard quality, which still doesn’t have to do without the roughness and atmosphere. Pure live enjoyment. The enclosed booklet (with liner notes, rare pictures, and stories) allows you to experience the musical inferno even more intensely. Release by Power It Up rec!

Slund (07.10.22)

Hi, Igor! Glad to have had this conversation with you. How’re you doing man? Hope you`re healthy and practicing new songs!)) Hi. Thanks for inviting me to this interview. I’m ok, healthy but very busy at the moment (not music-related). I’m making a little less music right now because of some personal life stuff. But yeah, there are new songs… So could you tell us more about Slund. As far as I remember you doing all noises alone… Yes, I play all the instruments myself. It started about 5 years ago. I was in between projects and bands and wasn’t … Continue reading Slund (07.10.22)

Agathocles / Heraclides

This tape showed up just a day ago, my mailman kindly delivered it right into my hands. This is a very fresh release with iconic Agathocles and new blood from Singapore – Heraclides. The tape is damn short but interesting and cheerful. Belgian mince veterans start this split with damn raw song. Guys used only two songs for this work… and I don`t really know what to say about it, because I`ve talked about this band so many times, haha. So the sound is freaking raw, the first track “Piss On Flemish Myths ” is aggressive and nice, nothing outstanding, … Continue reading Agathocles / Heraclides

Rot (02.08.21)

Greetings Mendigo! First of all, my condolences and hugs, Alex was a super kind person, I still can’t believe that he is gone… Thank you, we’re still processing what happened. It was extremely painful for us and for the Brazilian scene, Alex was really involved with underground culture in our country. I know that “Organic” will be dedicate to him, so let`s focus on this album. How many songs did record for this LP? How long you been in the studio? The disc has 25 songs, we recorded the instrumental in two days and the vocals in two days more. … Continue reading Rot (02.08.21)

Dirty flashbacks from the grindest days! The full report, OEF 2021!

Have you heard the news? Both Branson and Bezos have now gone to space. Guess what? None of these posers attended Obscene Extreme Festival 2021. But we did. Was it worth it? Oh yes! As you might know the situation in the world today is very unstable and uncertain and we hadn`t had any fun for a long time, so we were really hungry for live shows and festivals. The moment Obscene Extreme Festival announced Schirenc plays Pungent Stench I already knew – we`re going to the Czech Republic! Further announcements only strengthened our determination to get there this year. … Continue reading Dirty flashbacks from the grindest days! The full report, OEF 2021!

Curby / Obscene Extreme Festival 2021

Could you inform us about some major changes? I guess the rules have been changed because of the epidemic… First I have to say that the Czech Republic is now a green light country as for covid and the situation here looks really fine now…and it’s summer time so even the weather will surely help! So far our government announced open air shows for 5000 people in July 2021 which is enough for OEF this year!!! As fo covid restrictions, it seems that one of the following ones will be needed: 1. Vaccination or 2. Negative test or 3. Post … Continue reading Curby / Obscene Extreme Festival 2021

Archagathus / Meat Spreader

This split was in my personal top of 2020, both bands did their best. I remembered that I was amazed and smashed during the first round of the listening… A year later I finally got this CD in my collection. So what’s so special in this split? I think it’s not only famous names it’s material itself, because both sides are very powerful. Let’s start with Canadian Archagathus. We all know this band and love their mincecore… but with this recording guys showed their gore side. The art for this side was made by master Pierre de Palmas (Braindead Zine, … Continue reading Archagathus / Meat Spreader

Global Grindcore Alliance (22.03.21)

Hi mate, hope you’re doing well. So let`s start our small talk, hehe) Tell us about this festival? How do you come up with such an idea? I hope you are well and thank you for doing this. The idea really came up due to Covid because of the fact that as a band we could not really play shows anywhere and all the creative outlets/ platforms were really not there for us . So we figured that other bands worldwide really were experiencing the same situation where their outlet was limited, so we reached out to all our friends … Continue reading Global Grindcore Alliance (22.03.21)

Agathocles / Mixomatosis / Sacthu

For the weekend review, I picked up a nice split with Agathocles / Mixomatosis and Sacthu. This noise was released last summer but it still actual to talk about this LP. First of all, It`s rare to see, or rather strange to see a 3way split vinyl. Because it`s pain in the ass to cut everything into equal pieces. But guys found the way, side A and B have the same bands, but with different songs. In my opinion, this is a smart solution. And like all good stories our starts with Agathocles, ha! Belgium veterans recorded this material in … Continue reading Agathocles / Mixomatosis / Sacthu

Archagathus – Atrocious Halitosis From Nauseated Disgorging

It`s been 10 years since this LP was released. After a decade this album became very popular and iconic in this sub-genre. For this anniversary Power It Up rec prepared a vinyl version of “Atrocious Halitosis From Nauseated Disgorging”. I don`t have the original CD but I can honestly say that this edition looks and feels awesome! Great paper quality, good looking design, and the vinyl with a solid sound. As a vinyl fan, I`m more than happy, haha) This album is everything that you need to know about modern mincecore. All 18 songs are charged with a ton of … Continue reading Archagathus – Atrocious Halitosis From Nauseated Disgorging

Agathocles ‎– Fascination Of Mutilation

I really love when such old and rare stuff released again and released in the proper way. Here is a tape version of one very old (30 years!) Flexi 7”.  This small cassette looks awesome, yes it has another cover art, but I see no problem with it. Also, everything was made right with great quality, screen printed logos on the shell, the cover surprised me a bit, it was made on some kind of plastic but not on paper. To be short this is a top-notch production. As for the noise… This is an ancient live recording that was … Continue reading Agathocles ‎– Fascination Of Mutilation
