Haggus / Inopexia / Pulmonary Fibrosis

I really love when a few nasty bands gather together and do splits or compilation or whatever. Originally this is an old split, it was released on tape a year go. Hard to understand why, but that wasn`t enough for the bands and labels, so they decided to release a vinyl version of it as well. This fresh release has different cover art and was released on a heavy one sided LP. The new art is so fucking cool, it looks a million times better than the old cheesy corpse art, ha! The guys from Rudolph (Рудольф) band did a … Continue reading Haggus / Inopexia / Pulmonary Fibrosis

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

Nauseate / Camphora Monobromata / Archagathus

If I remember it right, this split should have been out at least two years ago, but due to some circumstance, this release was delayed. This CD unites 3 bands from the 3 biggest countries of our cursed planet. So welcome Nauseate – India, Camphora Monobromata – Russia, and Archagathus – Canada. As you may notice this is very Punk stuff. The cover is done in an old crusty style (black and white colors are the mainstay here, each band recorded their stuff on their own, this split oozes diy spirit what else can I say? Nauseate is the lucky … Continue reading Nauseate / Camphora Monobromata / Archagathus

Camphora Monobromata – Suffering Amongst The Hostile Walls (No Bread rec)

Are you on the hunt for some Punk fueled Grind in the vein of Agathocles and Rot? Well then, Camphora Monobromata is the band that you are looking for! Today I will cover the latest full length from this Russian band. This piece of putrid noise was released by No Bread Records in wonderful digi-pack format. The gloomy art is a projection of the whole album… somehow this image looks scary, Jon (the artist) did a great job.  Song by song, these guys are proving that they are one of the finest Grind band’s in Russia. The riffs are primitive, … Continue reading Camphora Monobromata – Suffering Amongst The Hostile Walls (No Bread rec)

Sram / Archagathus

Mince on my friends! This day I want to dedicate to one very popular Grind sub genre. Today I want to write something about Mincecore. As you all well know, this genre was created by big and old guys from Agathocles, but it has been 30 years already and Mincecore is still popular (at least I think so, hahaha). There is a lot of good bands nowadays and also a ton of nasty releases. Well I chose this split because I want to compare two mince bands from the different corners of our stupid planet. So here is nice friendly … Continue reading Sram / Archagathus

Tsubo – Disdegno (No Bread!)

Any person who has been keeping track of the happenings in the Italian grind scene in the past few years, will know about Tsubo. In case you didn’t, Tsubo is a 4 piece grindcore (mostly grindcore) band hailing from Latina, Italy. They have been active in the scene for about a decade (or even more) and now they shoot a new EP into the face of the underground. I will be honest, their last album disappointed me. There was a lot of brutal/metal/etc pieces and that pushed me away (that album was really not my cup of tea). For some … Continue reading Tsubo – Disdegno (No Bread!)

Warthog – Exercise in Bad Taste (No Bread Records)

Some of my friend said that Warthog is the greatest (nowadays of course) Grind band in all of Russia. So that encouraged me to check this fact and write some words about their new tape “Exercise in Bad Taste”. Under this title are hiding 8 Grind songs (Sosed,Hey, Archgoat!, Listopad / Opyt Kresta, Hey,Verka! / Kontuziya,Heavy Metal Bez Usov / Chelovek-Flamingo / Basseiny Vmesto Hramov, Stenchcore Runner / Possibility Of Life’s Destruction (Discharge cover), Divine, Skuka / Shawehrmacht). All of these songs are wrapped up in a pretty dark cover. This dead hand which is sliced, it looks pretty spooky. … Continue reading Warthog – Exercise in Bad Taste (No Bread Records)

Weedeous Mincer ‎– Brain Devoured By Mincegore

Oh boy, the Mincegore plague poisoned Russia so quickly… Here is another new name for me, “Weedeous Mincer”. Hm, very stupid name but anyway lets dig into this record. For cover our weedeaters used a photo which depicts a Russian cop who`s breaking the law, hahah (I must admit this is a very funny and stupid picture) Also this squad consists of only two (stoned) members and this band is based in Saint Petersburg… Okay, now let’s dig into these strange noises These tunes were recorded by Farsh and Kisel (Cystoblastosis/ Camphora Monobromata etc.) in cold 2016… All 9 songs … Continue reading Weedeous Mincer ‎– Brain Devoured By Mincegore
