Nothing Clean / Art Of Burning Water

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

Gets Worse – Snubbed

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

LIFES – Treading Water (Here And Now Records)

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)

Street Feet – Diminished Capacity (Rat Mix 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)

The Seeker / Arnø X Duebel

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

Gets Worse / Endless Swarm

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

Failure – S/T

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

Ona Snop – Geezer

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
