Agathocles ‎– Mutilated Regurgitator

So, this a new CD by Belgian mincecore legends Agathocles! “Mutilated Regurgitator” is a damn good compilation of old iconic songs. Yes, this is not a new split or album, but believe me, this release is worth your attention. The cover art of this CD was taken from Agathocles / VNA split, but it`s colored and looks much better than the original. Also, this famous image is a strong message to the protection of animals and their rights. Altogether you will be exterminated by 26 tracks of dirty and powerful music. So let`s start this grind adventure! I really did … Continue reading Agathocles ‎– Mutilated Regurgitator

Inopexia – Обычный день

As you may know, Inopexia is a gore act from the heart of Russia. For their long history, guys made a ton of gigs (even I saw them 3 times) and of course, there are a lot of records. “Обычный день” (Usual day) is one of their last EP and today I will try to write about it. This tape has a very simple design, but an interesting cover. This is is weird art and the artist dedicated it (I suppose so) to the different kinds of junkies. Unfortunately, this problem is very actual in our sick world. Basically, this … Continue reading Inopexia – Обычный день

First Days Of Humanity – Pixel Death + EPs

Finally got a copy of this lovely compilation CD (which contains the first 3 EP) of a great one-man band from Arizona! Many people were thought that this is a joke project and it will be dead after the first shot (Caves), but they were wrong. First Days Of Humanity brings us a lot of great tunes and emotions, right now this project is on hold because the guy behind it is working on something new, but we still have some releases to talk about. In this review, I want to cover “Pixel Death”, because I love it the most. … Continue reading First Days Of Humanity – Pixel Death + EPs

Human Obliteration – Definition Of Insanity

When I met the drummer of Human Obliteration at OEF he told me that they gonna release a new album. A little bit more than a year guys started to post some promo songs, and must say they were great! I was stocked to hear the whole album and finally here is it. Wise Grinds rec was the first who released this album, it was a tape (oh yes, that label is gonna release a vinyl version too, so you were warned). The cover art for “Definition Of Insanity” was created by Arif Rot (Wormrot), what can I say, this … Continue reading Human Obliteration – Definition Of Insanity

Endless Swarm / Faršas

It’s always interesting to review split releases because this kind of record is based on friendship and respect. And for today’s write up I choose a pretty fresh split of Endless Swarm (UK) and Faršas (Lithuania). Let`s try to start from the cover of this lovely tape. I think I didn`t catch the main idea of this art. Because I only see some old idols and something evil that is trying to get through them. I guess I need to ask bands about this painting.  Endless Swarm is not so active these days so that`s why it`s always great to … Continue reading Endless Swarm / Faršas

Hatefilled – Totally Disfigured Carnage

Sometimes even non-grindcore countries like Argentina can surprise! Today I want to share with you this awesome one-man project – Hatefilled! This debut work is full of awesome and nasty goregrind. If you miss Regurgitate this release is for you because this guy is playing very similar music (I even can say that this is a Regurgitate worshiping band). These 8 minutes of noise will bring you a ton of aggressive bone-crushing energy! Actually “Totally Disfigured Carnage” is something like a flashback to great times of goregrind. The sound is disgusting and heavy, the guitar sounds like a chainsaw it … Continue reading Hatefilled – Totally Disfigured Carnage

Violent Frustration – Do It Yourself

To be honest it`s sad to write this review because this 7” is a swang song for this German band. Sadly I didn’t catch them live, but at least I shared a beer with these guys ;). This vinyl was released by legendary German label Rodel rec! I bet this record was pressed in Germany too. The cover art looks very actual, especially in the light of current times. There is no place for all this radical crap in our world! So “Do It Yourself” is a fast and good record. These last 8 songs are charged with a nice … Continue reading Violent Frustration – Do It Yourself

Ruin / Abysme (Wise Grinds Records)

This year brings us a lot of trouble and shit but also it brings us a lot of great releases. Today I wanna talk about a nice grinding death metal release, a split 7” with Ruin / Abysme! This small vinyl is rotten to the core, just look at this disgusting cover art, ha! Same I can say about the music inside, this putrid death metal is dreadful and bloody good! It`s always cool to hear new stuff from veterans Ruin, I love their music. We have here only two song, but, fuck, both of them are killer! The sound … Continue reading Ruin / Abysme (Wise Grinds Records)

Chepang – Chatta

I finally found some time to write a few words about this interesting album. It`s not a secret that I love these Nepali guys. Somehow they always managed to create a top natch schizophrenic music. “Chatta” is very bright in all aspects, starting with the cover and finishing with the last note on the album. Oh yes, I was lucky to grab a splatter green copy of this LP, must say it looks fantastic on my turntable, ha! This work starts with an amazing saxophone solo, which shows you that this album will be weird as fuck, haha! Actually, this … Continue reading Chepang – Chatta

Sedem Minút Strachu / Noise Brutalizer

I think this is releases is not for all fans of extreme music, this 10″ Lathe cut vinyl is full of awful noises, that will cause a horrible headache haha! And let me start with the European part of this story.  Slovakian SMS managed to create something really harsh, this noise is very different from what they did in the beginning. Among their usual chaotic performance, I found a lot of harsh noise elements, that make my ears bleed 🙂 This music is full of hate and rage, this noise could even fire up any riot if you will turn … Continue reading Sedem Minút Strachu / Noise Brutalizer

Squelch Chamber – Down So Low

This will be an unusual review for us because we will talk not about grindcore or powerviolence. We gonna talk about something different, about noise-punk. Squelch Chamber is a young noisecore/electronic/punk band from Pennsylvania. This is one of these bands “so awful, it’s beautiful”, haha! I really thankful for this promo, it`s an awesome feeling to discover something musically another but extreme. I`m pressing the play button and here we go! At first, the brain refuses to understand this pulsating noise, but in a short time, you began to enjoy it, ha! Some parts remind me of Bastard Noise, some … Continue reading Squelch Chamber – Down So Low

Eraser – Mutual Overkill Deterrence

This year I discovered a new (for myself) grindcore from Italy – Eraser. This is an old school-oriented squad from Palermo. I think they started to play about 5 years ago and so far Eraser has 3 releases, not so much but guys are not Agathocles ;). Actually “Mutual Overkill Deterrence” was the first thing that I heard. To be honest, they didn`t create anything new in this genre, but they managed to combine old school with some modern tricks. Actually, this album sounds much better than looks, haha! As I said before this is old school grinding with a … Continue reading Eraser – Mutual Overkill Deterrence

Agathocles / Noise Brutalizer

Okay, guys, this is something new for me, a B-card format. hmm)) Basically this is i]usual CD but with a weird shape. Rotova Porojnina Records started to make such and unusual release a year ago, and finally, I got a few in my collection. So this split has a very simple DIY design, really nothing much to talk about. I think it will be better to put this thing into the player and check the first few songs from grandpas Agathocles! Belgian veterans performing here with 3 raw and angry songs, which were recorded 3 years ago. I think that … Continue reading Agathocles / Noise Brutalizer

Meth Leppard – Woke

Woke is a long-awaited first full album from my Australian friends Meth Leppard! Must admit guys managed to grind my mind and flesh, ha! Everything on this album is thought out. The main theme of the front art is covering the most painful themes of humanity…  War, protests, dirty politicians, global ecology problems, and so on. And again Infested Art managed to create an awesome painting. Jasper is a very talented grind artist, I never saw a bad drawing from him, but this creation is one of his best works! I`m lucky to have all 3 formats of this release … Continue reading Meth Leppard – Woke

T.F.B. – Blastbeat Hangover Commando

This year is full of great releases, so many bands have new stuff, it`s hard to track everything, even for me haha! The “Blastbeat Hangover Commando” was in my list of “must check 2020”, so I was extremely happy to find this LP on my mailbox! This German beer commando managed to make a really good product! Everything is well made, starting from the music and ending with this awesome cover art. Btw this painting was made by Huere Artworks, as usual, he made a great job! This alcoholic-punk twister looks fun and red! So what da hell “Blastbeat Hangover … Continue reading T.F.B. – Blastbeat Hangover Commando

Orchestral Pit’s Cannibals – Partitures from Archives

Today’s story will be about something old and, I guess, not well known. Back in the 90th Russian underground was full of death and thrash metal bands, grindcore was not so popular and almost unknown. But there was a group of freaks who tried to play grind, and Orchestral Pit’s Cannibals is one of these bands. “Partitures from Archives” is a compilation released which includes debut album “Exalted Oestrum” (1997), demo “Allenthesis” (1996), and the debut tape “F.R.E.A.K.” (1994). So we will be digging this history in the reversal order. Also, I want to make an accent on this cover … Continue reading Orchestral Pit’s Cannibals – Partitures from Archives

Days Of Desolation / Noisear (Loner Cult Records)

This releases should have been released years ago… There were some problems, and delays, which suck, but I happy finally see and listen to this small split. Jasper from Infested Art was in charge of the cover. Must say this image simply blew my mind, this is one of the best of his works! An amazing painting from one side and a perfect match with the music (although both bands on this split are playing different music). Now let`s talk about the noise.  Belgian punks Days Of Desolation finally show us their new songs! These 5 songs full of dark … Continue reading Days Of Desolation / Noisear (Loner Cult Records)

Escuela Grind / Reeking Cross

Fridays noise! For this end of the working week, I choose an old but interesting split with two intensive bands – Escuela Grind and Reeking Cross. I think this split is sold out, but it`s still a good idea to write a few words about it. And let me start with girls & boys band Escuela Grind! All songs were recorded 2 years ago, and sound a bit different from their nowadays material. Songs are short, fast, and full of anger. Production is raw but I like how everything sounds. I can`t hear all the guitar riffs but that does … Continue reading Escuela Grind / Reeking Cross

Pharmacist – Forensic Pathology Jurisprudence

Japan is full of talented people, these guys are good in music, robotics, hi-end audio players, and so on. Obviously, we will talk about their music side, today I have a new name for you – Pharmacist! As far as I know, this band was formed just at the beginning of this year, but their noise is already famous. The heroes of our story are playing “total Carcass worship” style death grind. Some of you may say that this is just another clone, nothing special, and so on, maybe, but this tape blasted my brain, haha! I am proud to … Continue reading Pharmacist – Forensic Pathology Jurisprudence

Disease / LxDxT (Bloody Scythe Records)

Sometimes even short tape releases could surprise. For today’s review I picked up a very hot tape split with Disease from Washington and LxDxT from California. Altogether we have just 12 tracks, but this material is bloody good. I`ve never regretted the time that I spend listening to this noise!   After a few seconds of silence, this cassette painfully kicked me with some really nice grind tunes, haha! Disease are acting dirty and fast. Their songs are rich with a good raw low sound and mad power. Also, this material is simple, pretty primitive… perfect noise for the fans … Continue reading Disease / LxDxT (Bloody Scythe Records)

ill! / Turtle Rage

Today I will write about the German bands again, haha! That land is surprisingly rich with good bands. Today’s heroes are ill from Münster and Turtle Rage from Berlin. Both bands are young and playing more or less in the same style. The format of this split is 7” and that means that will need to overturn this small piece of plastic each 3 minutes, damn) The first 3 minutes belong to ill. I got their previous split and I remember that it was cool. Must say that guys didn`t make the step aside with this recording session, genre, aggression, … Continue reading ill! / Turtle Rage

The Communion / Bastard Noise

This split 7” was taken from the bottom of my review box. Due to some technical problems, it took me a hell of a time to write something about this release. Let me begin. I expected nothing special from this piece of plastic, and I was amazed at the end of the listening. Here is why…   The Communion managed to create an ugly song (of the bitch), that contains so many great and filthy elements. Fast hardcore is mixing with slow sludgecore/pv structures… and all of that transforms into something noisy in the end.  This track plunged me into … Continue reading The Communion / Bastard Noise

Haexler – Blankness, Bleakness

Today’s story will be about young debuts, I’m going to write a few words about the first record of German Haexler. They marked themselves as a powerviolence band, but in my opinion, we have here a mix of different sub-genres. In this record, I found some grindcore parts, some modern jumping hardcore, and some pv of course. But let’s go in order… This 7” starts with the atmospheric and sad intro “Climb”, which reminds me of some post-hardcore bands or blackened crust stuff. The second song “Hide” sounds very modern with the beat down tricks (which I don’t really like), … Continue reading Haexler – Blankness, Bleakness

Septicemic Plague – Creeping Flesh Horror

Today I will talk about debut tape of the one-man goregrind project from Occidental/USA. Unfortunately, I didn’t find a lot of information about this project. So far this band released 3 tapes, the last was a split with Meatus, and now their bandcamp page is pretty silent. I found about this act because my friend from GarbageBondage Records released it, and sent the tape to me. What can I say I was more than surprised… Creeping Flesh Horror is simply awesome low vibrations with disgusting (in a good way) sound! Raw and bit messy, this sound reminds me, old bands, … Continue reading Septicemic Plague – Creeping Flesh Horror

Eye Gag – Your Achievements

This review has been a long time coming, sit down and hold on tight because we are going on a 75 track Noiscore Safari. Eye Gag is the one man project of Sam Sandoval based out of Chicago,Illinois. The album in the spotlight today is Your Achievements is a compilation of all of the material Eye Gag has released up to this point.  Where do I even begin with this album? All 75 songs are split into 3 seperate tracks on the album, so it’s a never ending onslaught from the start. Kicking it all off is 31 tracks titled … Continue reading Eye Gag – Your Achievements

Anatomical Plastination – Removal Of The Dead Flesh

There are a lot of undervalued bands in our underground, I know that it’s nearly impossible to check or know all of them and track them too, but I want to fix that. Today I want to talk about the one really interesting pathological act – Anatomical Plastination. This band was based in Mexico, and the guys were fans of old school gore and death metal. I was lucky to get a copy of this 7” from Grotesque Records (thank you bro). First what I thought when I unpacked this vinyl was “goddamn is this a tribute to Carcass?!”, ha! … Continue reading Anatomical Plastination – Removal Of The Dead Flesh

Morgue Breath – Postrarse Frente La Flema

California is the land of great grind bands, I don’t really know why, maybe there is something in their beer, but there are so many talented people! Today I want to talk about a new and fresh one-man project – Morgue Breath. A man who’s standing behind this music is Ivo from Radiation Vomit/Man`s Toilet. I really love all of his bands… that guy is freaking grind wizard haha! “Postrarse Frente La Flema” is the name of this debut work, it contains 6 original songs and 1 cover. Also, this album has good artwork, gloomy, dark, with an appropriate atmosphere. … Continue reading Morgue Breath – Postrarse Frente La Flema
