Greenmachine – S/T

In the fall of 2020 Japanese legends, Greenmachine showed us a few previous tracks from their new album. These songs were really nice and they also were charged with a massive portion of positive vibes. So I waited and waited, at first, guys released a vinyl version, as you may understand it`s hard to get it from Japan due to some circumstances. So I was super happy to find out that my homies from RobusFellow are making CD and tape versions. Both local versions look so bloody good, I really didn`t expect so top quality of production and sound. This … Continue reading Greenmachine – S/T

Nekrofilth / Unholy Grave

When I heard the rumors about this release I was fucking stocked! Two great bands on 1 vinyl… lovely! Unfortunately, this is 6″ format, and it’s damn short, but we have what we have. This psycho art is hiding 4 minutes of old-school death metal and top-notch grindcore. The first 120 seconds belong to the USA death machine Nekrofilth! Both songs have an unbelievable spirit of the 90th. Fast, noisy, and cheerful metal right into the face! Great riffs, nice tempos not the worst production. The guitar sounds wild, the same I can say about the vocal, that pissed-off style … Continue reading Nekrofilth / Unholy Grave

Deaftrap – S/T

German squad Deaftrap are back with a brand new album! After a really good demo and Asian tour, guys started to work on new material, and finally, it is ready. This full-length is full of dark atmosphere and good riffs. Yes, this is not grindcore, but this cool mix of modern hardcore, sludge, and crust worth listening to. These psychos are playing very well, with fire and live energy. I think the base of this self-titled album is consists of the sub-hardcore genre, that one with a lack of punk but with a lot of breakdowns. Personally, I prefer classical … Continue reading Deaftrap – S/T

Neuro-Visceral Exhumation ‎– Mass Murder Festival

Neuro-Visceral Exhumation is a true and legendary gore act from Brazil. It`s really cool to see that guys are back and working on new stuff, hope it will be released this year. But for today let`s listen to the tape re-issue of their debut album “Mass Murder Festival”. The cassette looks and sounds very solid, Left Hand Patches made a nice job! Unlike the last CD re-issue, this one has original cover art, which is best, in my opinion. There are no bonus tracks or something like that, but who cares? This classical gore album has 19 songs, must say … Continue reading Neuro-Visceral Exhumation ‎– Mass Murder Festival

Oozing / Pharmacist

This blasting CD was the very first thing that I listened to today. Heavy and nasty only these words could describe this release. So what do we got here? The first part belongs to Oozing, which is a new band of Chris (Bouquet, First Days Of Humanity, and others), this is the debut stuff and it`s something different than simple gore. This time that guy surprised us with strong and dirty death metal material. But to be honest, all 5 songs still have grinding vibes. Not fast, with messy and with a heavy sound, this music brings a lot of … Continue reading Oozing / Pharmacist

Hexis – Exstirpo / Exsorbeo

To celebrate their 10-anniversary Danish band Hexis recorded 2 brand new songs and release them in interesting format 6″ vinyl. I won`t say that this is something usual for me because Hexis is playing a weird mix of black metal and hardcore. But on other hand, this stuff is pretty atmospheric and extreme, let`s give it a chance. This small EP has very beautiful and dark cover art (or photo). Don`t know why but such vinyl format is rare and unpopular, maybe European factories simply can`t cut them, with their old equipment. Anyway, let`s get back to Hexis… Can’t say … Continue reading Hexis – Exstirpo / Exsorbeo

Neuroot – Plead Insanity

Do you remember our series about the genres that were a base for grindcore and other extreme genres? Here is another one. This time we`re going to listen to a fresh vinyl of Duch hardcore punkers Neuroot. This is the damn old band they started in the golden era of hardcore punk (1982). And like many old bands, this squad split up after a few years of activity… decades later guys rejoined and started to play again. Originally “Plead Insanity” was released in 1988, guys recorded it before Neuroot was done. But this year German Power It Up re-released this … Continue reading Neuroot – Plead Insanity

Intestinal Disgorge – The Depths of Madness

Texas noisemakers Intestinal Disgorge are well known in the grind underground. Guys love to make experiments and there is no straight line in their discography. Some works sound like hyper-perverted gore, some like brain-melting noise, but this new EP (or let’s call it mini-album) sounds like crazy grindcore. But let me go in order. This CD was released by an old French label Meat 5000 Records. Also, it has more or less usual covert art (as for the gore era of its music). Nothing bright or new, everything made in the way how it should be, but the music of … Continue reading Intestinal Disgorge – The Depths of Madness

Necrotized Mass – Red Death

Italy is not a world grindcore capital, but it has some good bands. There is a small town called Viareggio where is living one interesting man. Michele is his name, and this guy is very active and pretty talented. That is him who created Yakisoba, Carbonized Innocents is his work too, Sociopathic Behavior – yep, and the list of his projects is huge. But for today’s write up I want to concentrate on his latest band Necrotized Mass. “Red Death” is an ode to old bands like Repulsion, early Napalm Death, Deceased, and Impetigo. If you love such moldy tunes, … Continue reading Necrotized Mass – Red Death

Suicideforce / Deathrun

The best way to ruin your neighbors day it`s to play a record that is fast, furious, and play it loud. And here is a good candidate, this split will perfectly fit for these needs! Italians Suicideforce started with a high note! Fast, harsh powerviolence right into your face. I`m honestly impressed. The power of this material is very vast and pleasant. The guys managed to catch live energy, and it wasn’t lost during all mixing. This band used all main attributes of this genre, stop/play structures, aggression, and so on. I especially love how the bass guitar sound, this … Continue reading Suicideforce / Deathrun

Dødsdømt – 1989 – 2019

Norwegian underground is something unknown to me. For example, Dødsdømt is old crusty hardcore punks from that country. Want to say that this is a very interesting and pleasant discovery. The guys started at the beginning of the 90th but after some years they stopped playing. Only after more than decade guys will reunite, and the new material will be released in 2018. This LP is a collection of all their songs, starting with very old songs and ending with the last recorded song. Also, this vinyl is a part of the punk series by Power It Up rec. For … Continue reading Dødsdømt – 1989 – 2019

7Ft Beyond Belief ‎– Beyond the Buried Eyes

Okay boys and girls this is something new for me and I believe for you too. This is not a young band, the first demo was released almost 15 years ago. Unfortunately, there is not much info about this band, but 7Ft Beyond Belief ‎is a real unknown treasure, haha! This material is freaking hot! Yes, maybe this CD has not the best design, everything here looks very simple and primitive. BUT visual part is not always important, believe me, the music in this CD is worth listening to. Netherland, the land that brings us a lot of good death … Continue reading 7Ft Beyond Belief ‎– Beyond the Buried Eyes

Exorbitant Prices Must Diminish / Nothing Clean

Fastcore and powerviolence genre are integral parts of our small and noisy underground, personally, I love that kind of noise, and today I want to talk about the split release of Exorbitant Prices Must Diminish / Nothing Clean (because this is a nice example of these genres). The first guys are from Switzerland and the second are from the UK. And the next 10 minutes will bring us a harsh joy of fast music! So as I already said Swiss boys Exorbitant Prices Must Diminish are the first in the line. I swear I`ve heard this name before, but it`s … Continue reading Exorbitant Prices Must Diminish / Nothing Clean

Entrails Massacre – Network Of Epic Misery

Strange thing a “Network Of Epic Misery” was recorded a year ago or even more, but only a year after, it was released physically (thanks to Dead Heroes). I was really surprised by this fact, because Entrails Massacre is a good band and this EP, without a doubt, is a massive and solid piece of grind. Anyway, I`m happy to hold this vinyl and spin it on my player. The first thing that caught my eye is a really interesting and nice design. The collage type of the cover is very usual for this genre, but this one looks different, … Continue reading Entrails Massacre – Network Of Epic Misery

Agathocles / Mixomatosis / Sacthu

For the weekend review, I picked up a nice split with Agathocles / Mixomatosis and Sacthu. This noise was released last summer but it still actual to talk about this LP. First of all, It`s rare to see, or rather strange to see a 3way split vinyl. Because it`s pain in the ass to cut everything into equal pieces. But guys found the way, side A and B have the same bands, but with different songs. In my opinion, this is a smart solution. And like all good stories our starts with Agathocles, ha! Belgium veterans recorded this material in … Continue reading Agathocles / Mixomatosis / Sacthu

Methadone Abortion Clinic – Rectalspective

Today we`ll talk about something nasty and disgusting, haha! US maniacs from Methadone Abortion Clinic are well known for their dark sense of humor and for sick music. Well, these guys are not so active with new material and while we`re waiting for their new album I propose you to listen to this cute compilation CD. “Rectalspective” consists of some early materials, splits, and live records. Can`t say that I like this cover art, but it`s only because I don`t like “Gruesome Graphx” generally. But I belive that fans of this band will find it creepy and funny. As for … Continue reading Methadone Abortion Clinic – Rectalspective

Sete Star Sept/Jack

New day – new review, hehe. Today I want to talk about an interesting release with two quite famous bands from Japan and Hungary. I think this split was lost in a massive wave of good releases of 2019. That`s why I want to get back to this vinyl again. So… Japanese noise freaks SSS are well known in the underground, some people love them, some no. But I think that this duo worth to listen. The material from this split sounds like a live recording from the studio, yes it’s raw, but with very intensive energy. As always everything … Continue reading Sete Star Sept/Jack

Sanctioned – Annexation

Sanctioned is a new band from Melbourne, but the guys behind this name are very skilled. The line up consists of grindcore stalwarts featuring members of many cult underground bands like The Kill, Undinism, Fuck I’m Dead, Christ Crusher, Kutabare, Remains, Shitwreck, Open Wound (impressive isn`t it?). I guess we have here an allstars band, haha! The visual look of this LP can confuse… it looks very metal, actually I was expected to hear some heavy metal but not a bone crashing grindcore, hehe. The style of this artwork looks very familiar and after some research, I understand that the … Continue reading Sanctioned – Annexation

Archagathus – Atrocious Halitosis From Nauseated Disgorging

It`s been 10 years since this LP was released. After a decade this album became very popular and iconic in this sub-genre. For this anniversary Power It Up rec prepared a vinyl version of “Atrocious Halitosis From Nauseated Disgorging”. I don`t have the original CD but I can honestly say that this edition looks and feels awesome! Great paper quality, good looking design, and the vinyl with a solid sound. As a vinyl fan, I`m more than happy, haha) This album is everything that you need to know about modern mincecore. All 18 songs are charged with a ton of … Continue reading Archagathus – Atrocious Halitosis From Nauseated Disgorging

Commando FxUxCxKx – Slum Zombie Gore

Brazilian goregrind is something special, there are a few pretty famous names but many of great bands are still unknown to the rest of the world. Today I will try to fix that, ha! So here is a new band (but with old heroes) from São Paulo/Brazil. “Slum Zombie Gore” is their debut CD and I really hope they won’t stop. I think the visual side of this release is its weak spot. Zombies, so so characters, colors, and so on… I can`t say that I found it interesting or cool. BUT the music of Commando FxUxCxKx was worth my … Continue reading Commando FxUxCxKx – Slum Zombie Gore

Tunkio ‎– World Of Maniacs

Finnish grind duo Tunkio has released a lot of good noise but today I want to talk about this dirty diamond, haha! World Of Maniacs is a one-sided EP released by Meltaaargh!!!! (sub-label of Bringer Of Gore) it`s short but very nasty. Actually, this is one of the best records from Tunkio (on my taste of course). So why this 7″ is so important and worth your time? Well first of all it`s its energy and raw amateurish sound. Someone will call it “it’s so bad that it’s good”, haha! There is only 9 short song and it sucks to … Continue reading Tunkio ‎– World Of Maniacs

Purulent Spermcanal / Carnal Diafragma

We all perfectly know that Czhces’s scene is reach with tons of great bands. This release is a nice example of how just simple teamwork of two old bands can kick a 10-ton ass, haha! Two oldtimers Purulent Spermcanal and Carnal Diafragma are back with new songs and with a huge charge of fun and energy! So let`s open this terrible and perverted pandora’s box! I really dig PS side, this material has very brutal and heavy. From all their splits from 2020, this is my favorite because of these sick songs. The guitar sound is extremely low, this shit … Continue reading Purulent Spermcanal / Carnal Diafragma

Rektal Tuşe – Aklen Muaf

To my shame, if you ask me about Turkish grind bands I will only name Sakatat and Subjugation. The name Rektal Tuşe was unknown to me until now. Usually, bands with the names like “anal” or “rectal” are playing shitty lo-fi pornogrind (or other garbage) but this squad chose another way. We have here a solid portion of grindcore with punk and death metal attitude. The material is honestly good and unboring, this CD also has a really nice design (I think the artist used a more classical grind approach here). Let`s switch to the music part. From the very … Continue reading Rektal Tuşe – Aklen Muaf

Bas Rotten – Surge

Last year simply crashed us with a pale of great releases. The album “Surge” is one of these kickass LPs from 2020. Funny thing, the chief of Lower Class Kids Records showed me this band and album, that was very kind of him. Must say I dig this stuff from the very first song! Of course, this is not unique content, but guys crated everything with love (or hate). Guys are huge fans of Bas Rotten, because they not only used his name but even drawn him on their cover (the guy is a kickboxing star). Which reminds me of … Continue reading Bas Rotten – Surge

Necrocannibalistic Vomitorium / Decomposing Serenity

For the last few years, both squads were quite slow in regurgitation of new material. I think I can name both of them pretty specific bands because their grind is not usual. Some people love it, some hate it, but guys don`t give a fuck about haters and still playing their own vision of gore/grind/noise. This CD was released by two Ukrainian labels Horns & Hoofs Records (obviously) and Vibex Productions. The general design of this split is very gloomy, everything has dark colors with strong nuar notes (especially the front cover of DC). But the music is not so … Continue reading Necrocannibalistic Vomitorium / Decomposing Serenity

Fuck On The Beach / Noise Nihilist

Japanese legends are back with a new split release. This time they joined their forces with Polish noise freaks from Noise Nihilist. This 7″ was released by 3 different labels from Poland, Italy, and the USA. Each label made its own design, and that is an interesting decision. This release became very collectible, and now I want to get all 3 of them, haha! My copy is from Italy and it has city ruins in the cover, it looks gloomy and dark…  but the music of this EP is not so negative. To be honest I~m a bit disappointed, Fuck … Continue reading Fuck On The Beach / Noise Nihilist

Pigsty – Pig Blood

I want to dedicate this review to the memory of Miroslav Ubias. Czech legends Pigsty were silent for many years, actually, I thought that this band was done but I was wrong. Pig Blood is a 4th full length and very unusual work. For more than 2 decades guys played crashing grind, but with this work, they make a step from that direction. But let`s go in order. I can call this album conceptual, the whole LP dedicated and soaked with an unholy theme. The artwork looks fantastic, I feel the satanic atmosphere of that angry pig, haha!  As for … Continue reading Pigsty – Pig Blood
