Split NoComply / Sidetracked

Washington State’s SIDETRACKED deliver seventeen disjointed, breakneck-speed, experimental powerviolence blasts. Much like SISSY SPACEK did to grind of chopping up songs and making you feel mostly insane and overall anxious, SIDETRACKED laysout some amazing blasting hardcore in such an amazingly chaotic way. Florida/NorthCarolina/Philadelphia are represented on this NOCOMPLY session. Birthed from the same session as the THEY LIVE split , you have three tracks long enough to sink your teeth into while still blazing fast at points. This material is also newer and not collected on the East Coast Powerviolence LP. Both bands have been fine turning their styles for … Continue reading Split NoComply / Sidetracked

Split Shitbrains / Controlled Existence is out!

Los Angeles grindcore/fastcore band SHITBRAINS lays down some of the most ferocious stop and go, whirlwind, blasting, dual vocal madness ever laid to wax on their fast and furious side of this killer split. On the flip side, Czech grind veterans CONTROLLED EXISTENCE lay down 6 new tracks. Bringing more of what they always do to the table… punishing, traditional, punk-fueled grind. You can get a copy from  Wise Grinds Records (US) / Psychocontrol records (CZ) and Calvos 73 Records Continue reading Split Shitbrains / Controlled Existence is out!

Wounding – Hunted

Today I wanna talk about the young and very promising band Wounding. This is a duo from Finland, and they playing powerviolence. Unfortunately, I have failed to find more info about them, but I know that the guys released their debut tape just a few months ago. The tape was released by the Finnish label Necrolytic Effluence rec. And that`s pretty much all… Ah yes, I totally forgot to add that guys do not use guitar here, only bass and drums. The material sounds very heavy, brutal and primitive (in a good way). The bass tone is extremely crushing and … Continue reading Wounding – Hunted

Whoresnation (19.07.22)

Hi, Pibe! Every grinder needs to be in good physical shape, so, do you do morning exercises or something?) Hey Alexander! Well, good physical shape is not really defining Whoresnation but still … My morning routine is wake & bake or go empty belly to a shitty physical job. Pick your fighter! Finally your new album is out, what can you tell us about it? Do you happy with the final result? Yes ! It’s finally out, it was recorded during the summer 2021, it’s called Dearth and made of 16 tracks for 20 minutes. It’s the logical following of … Continue reading Whoresnation (19.07.22)

Toxic Shock / Reproach

If a skateboard, speed, tracker hat, and beer are an integral part of your life then you probably you have a Suicidal Tendencies shirt and this split, haha! Apparently Toxic Shock / Reproach split is an awesome example of thrashcore/fastcore genre, both bands did their best. I`m holding a 3d press of this 10″ records (imagine how popular this stuff is), and I’m literally feeling how many toxic and aggressive tunes this vinyl has, haha! No more words let’s put this record on our old turntable! Toxic Shock serves us with fast and furious hardcore crossover (with a drop of … Continue reading Toxic Shock / Reproach

Beggin for Oxys – Dignified and Composed

I bet that this band is new to many of you, that’s why I`ll start with some useful info. Beggin for Oxys is a 2-piece powerviolence/noisecore band from Toronto, Canada. Guys started 7 years ago and during that period they have released an impressive amount of stuff. Today I will listen to a release from the past, the EP called “Dignified and Composed”. An intriguing intro that falls off the noiseviolence concept rapidly, transforms into furious and loud songs. This recording is raw, with not perfect sound and production, but that is not important at all. The energy and aggression … Continue reading Beggin for Oxys – Dignified and Composed
