Today is Monday and this day usually sucks, and the best way to fix it it’s put some good tunes on your turntable. What could be better than 1 small but loud split with really wild fastcore? I bet nothing. So the split of the day is Satanic Youth / Crippled Fox. This vinyl shows really interesting rampant side of punk. This release has pretty common (for thrash/fastcore genre) art, skate to death my friends, haha! This image is really great, without joking. But the best part still lies ahead… Italian freaks from Satanic Youth starting this party. Must say … Continue reading Satanic Youth / Crippled Fox

It’s always a pleasure to escape from your own country and join friends at a good Grind festival. This year my target was Grind Here Right Now Fest. The line up of it was huge and juicy, and fuck, it was right after my birthday, so the decision was easy, haha. But beforehand, I flew to Berlin to check some good museums and hang out with some friends. My good friend Keule (Rodel Rec) showed me a few things and introduced me to a super cool punk bar that’s still a pretty active and popular space for local underground people. … Continue reading Good Guys at Grind Here Right Now! (22/23.11.19)
It’s been awhile since I reviewed a powerviolence release. So here is a fresh portion of good noise for everyone. This vinyl is a fairly simple and highly effective eight minutes worth of material that hits the spot for anyone into fast and heavy music. From first look this music may seem not serious, but it’s only because of the joke cover; believe me tunes inside are real and serious. Belgian Travølta is here again with their own vision of powerviolence. The music of Travølta has a strong metal hardcore touch, with characteristic sound. The whole production is good and … Continue reading Travølta / Boom

Everyone knows about USA’s schools of Powerviolence and Hardcore, but what do you know about the German scene? Could somebody give me the names of a few bands? No? Luckily today I’m going to tell you about a couple of great bands with members of few legendary Hardcore/PV bands such as Y, Pink Flamingos and SM70. It’s like a small family, all these dudes have played together for so many years in different squads, time slowly took these bands away one by one, but they didn’t give up. Here are two new projects Nuclear Cult and Crack Under Pressure. Their … Continue reading Nuclear Cult / Crack Under Pressure
Last week I reviewed a gorenoise album. Well, fuck it – might as well review a hardcore /powerviolence one too! Always Never Fun is the kind of band where followers know what to expect, but also know the end result will be twisted. These Italian punks have been active since 2012. I don’t know if 6 years is enough time for thinking about doing a compilation, but here we are – 12” black vinyl and 29 tracks of fast and aggressive material. You will hear all songs from their debut album, split with Australian PowerXChuck, and few great compilations. The … Continue reading ANF – Arrivereicci (Rødel Records)
We are all perfectly aware that the UK is full of some of the greatest and sickest bands, simply take a look at this small split. This 7” is like a small clot of uncontrollable energy and hatred, honestly I was really surprised. I know that this release was pressed 2 year ago, but, seriously I dont give a fuck, because this is a blast. It deserves a review in GGGG, so… First band in order is Nothing Clean. A band that could make your blood boil and push you into moshpit. Fast, short and furious, this is the type … Continue reading Nothing Clean / Art Of Burning Water
To be honest I never was a big fan of this band, but this album changed my mind. “Snubbed” sounds so interesting and unexpected, it’s a huge joy to listen to this LP. I guess you will ask me “why?”. Well, the first and the main reason is hiding inside the noise. On this album the guys play really strong and serious Powerviolence, without modern hardcore tricks, like in previous releases, this work sounds very fresh and interesting. As for the visual part, it remains unchanged. From the first look I easily recognized the branded style of this band. The … Continue reading Gets Worse – Snubbed
Today we’ve got a 12” full length from the Wisconsin based two piece band LIFES. This is the bass and drums duo’s first full length release, co-released by themselves and Here And Now Records. They’ve brought us 18 tracks of noisey hardcore/powerviolence, and I’m always a sucker for two-piece bands, so lets check it out. This release starts really strong, with definite roots in powerviolence and a heavy dose of hardocre. The blast beats are solid, and pacing changes are on point, and the breakdowns are heavy. This pace keeps up for the first few minutes and it’s enjoyable, but … Continue reading LIFES – Treading Water (Here And Now Records)
Have you ever found a record that’s hard to listen to, not because it’s bad, but because it’s so punishing that you can only handle it in small doses? Have you ever had to take a break before flipping that record, even though it’s a 7 inch? If you haven’t might I highly suggest you check out Diminished Capacity by Street Feet. Now – to be clear – everything above is the highest of compliments. What this crew from Birmingham, New York brings us is an absolutely brutal grindcore release. It starts with a bit of a slow burn with … Continue reading Street Feet – Diminished Capacity (Rat Mix Records)

Do you like fast music guys? Yes? So you’re in right place at the right time. Because today we will spinning a really fast release, a split between The Seeker and Arnø X Duebel. I listened to this 7” few times in a row and must say I’m positively impressed. This highly concentrated violence from young bands is bloody loud and sincere. The power, speed and genres in general are similar but at the same time don’t feel exactly alike. Let’s dig deeper and find out what the difference is. Milan residents The Seeker are first in our short … Continue reading The Seeker / Arnø X Duebel
Can there be a better idea than spinning a split with two killer bands which you’re a fan of? Yeah, I love this massive and violent punch from England. Both bands know how to make good and catchy noise. But this 7” isn’t just about the music. Just take a look at this funny cover. I don’t know the artist behind this image, but I bet that person was high during creation process, haha! It’s simply great how these cheesy japanese monsters look and fit so well on a Powerviolence release. As this is a 7” vinyl, we get only … Continue reading Gets Worse / Endless Swarm

With this record Failure become yet another one of those Powerviolence band that Italy seems to be infected with. These 3 maniacs know how to play violent Punk. The cover art pretty much displays the music of Failure. Because this debut is full of hate and rage and loud crashing energy. This 7” was released in collaboration by 4 labels, and it was pressed in two different colors yellow and black. I have the obsidian black copy, that sounds really great. When the needle touched the vinyl I realized that next the 7 minutes of my life would be … Continue reading Failure – S/T

Once I listened to the first record (split 7”EP with Nothing Clean) from the Leeds punks Ona Snop, I knew that I needed to try and collect all of the recordings from this project. These guys started this blazing band 4 years ago, and during these years our heroes recorded a few splits, and it was just a matter of time before they gave birth to a full length. It happened in 2018, and the album was named “Geezer”. I must say that it’s a strange name for such a fast and furious album, because this geezer could kick anybody’s … Continue reading Ona Snop – Geezer
