Tongue Scum!

Tongue Scum are an Australian Grindcore unit formed in 2019 hailing from Naarm (Melbourne). A self-proclaimed power-trio they boast members from classic scene bands such as Effigy to Extinction, Grudge!, Stoning, and many, many, many more. Occasionally, renown for their chaotic blend of toxic grind, their sound recalls bands such as Napalm Death, Pig Destroyer and Wormrot while drawing wider influence from extreme Australian acts like Captain Cleanoff, Extortion and Damaged. The TongueScum sound combines technical savagery and fast paced riffage, served with jarring brute force. Their energetic live shows have been described as both mesmerizing and brief. Having shared … Continue reading Tongue Scum!

Beasters – Alienated by Solidarity

Here is a second EP of Philly’s hypertech grindheads Beasters. This material was released in 2019 but it is still hot and actual. Unfortunately, I don`t know if this band is still around, the last post on their page was made 3 years ago… but I hope it`s just a hiatus. Anyway, this material blew my mind and that`s why I want to share this EP with you guys! To be honest I was fucking surprised after the first spin of this small release. This shit rips and rips hard, haha! Every track is intensive, with a good dynamic and … Continue reading Beasters – Alienated by Solidarity

Plutocracy – Civilized…….?

Plutocracy was a legend! They were one of the grindcore/powervilonce pioneers in the USA. Can`t say that these guys were productive, but they left a really nice legacy after. I had never had a chance to get their stuff here in Europe, but Alimentary Music sorted my problem. “Civilized…….?” is the second compilation in Plutocracy discography, it contains 19 tracks, songs from Snitch E.P., unreleased songs, tracks from splits with Aproctous, 976 and Discordance Axis, and a compilation Son Of Bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh!. Must say that material is rare, hard to find and, of course, expensive, so it is very nice to … Continue reading Plutocracy – Civilized…….?

Bandit – Siege of Self

The Philadelphian trio Bandit finally released their new album. “Siege of Self” is something they have never done before. This record is more complicated, more aggressive, and crazy. You really need to be prepared for such music, hehe! It’s also a good example of modern extreme music… The visual part of this work may look simple, but I found it very elegant. Just look at this art during listening to the records and the content of the picture will be revealed to you. Yes, Bandit made a damn puzzling album this time, but I love not-unusual and tricky stuff. On … Continue reading Bandit – Siege of Self

Sidetracked / xSavagex

I think we need more powerviolence at our small site. Today I want to play and write my thoughts about a nice split with Sidetracked from Washington and xSavagex from Seattle. These bands are not from the 90th, they are more or less new, but both have an old spirit of the old and iconic bands. This small piece of plastic charged with really incredible energy! And I can’t choose/highlight only 1 band because A and B sides are equal. Sidetracked side is damn aggressive and fast. All tracks are short (which reminds me noisecore approach) but at the same … Continue reading Sidetracked / xSavagex

Suppression with Bastard Noise – Infernal Legions

“Suppression and Bastard Noise are two acts whose names, and reputations precede them. Lazy, overused phrases like “powerviolence,” and “noise” have been rendered meaningless with time, and completely fall short of capturing the caustic, experimental nature of this intense and violent collaboration. That said – you should know what to expect here. And those expectations will be exceeded. These two thirty-plus year veterans have pushed each other beyond convention or routine and produced a unique and remarkable album that doesn’t just stand up next to it’s creators’ venerable catalogs, but also lays to waste countless modern cookie-cutter acts who might … Continue reading Suppression with Bastard Noise – Infernal Legions

Massgrav – Slowly We Rock

Last year Swedish rock stars Massgrav released their 5th album. “Slowly We Rock” became pretty popular, must admit this is their most punk-n-roll work and I love it very much. This record even won a local punk award (cool isn`t it?)! I already said about punk, but our heroes didn`t lose their crazy energy. They are fast and furious as always but this time you will be surprised by cool solos, nice genre twists, and so on. I can tell you only one thing, I love to play this CD when all my neighbors are home, haha! This album is … Continue reading Massgrav – Slowly We Rock

High Cost – What’s Living Worth?

High Cost is a powerviolence band from New York. Their music has a high degree of freedom that is not bound by silly manners, danceable 8 beats – mosh inevitable drops – furious blasting, riffs rich in hooks, and angry throats that completely destroy the heartstrings of punk kids. CD is released by Esagoya rec and Bitter Melody Records Continue reading High Cost – What’s Living Worth?

Fractured / FAGX

Today I learned something new about the Belgian and the US scene. I am pretty sure this split will be interesting for you too. So what do we have here? Fractured is a powerviolence band from Los Angeles… guys are fast and truly aggressive. FAGX (Fahrenheit AGX) is a Belgian band that existed for only a short period (1 year or so)… they played a weird mix of fastcore and mincecore. Side A – Fractured. Pretty solid amount of songs with good energy. Must say this is a good material, however, the general sound is a bit raw. Interesting fact … Continue reading Fractured / FAGX
