Rato Triste – Choked By My Own Dreams

Just from the heart of the Czech Republic – Rato Triste! Filthy, loud, and super heavy sludge brigade from Prague! But that`s not all, this band has badass guys from Controlled Existence, Morbid Angel Dust, Sick Destroyer etc… so as you see these members know how to play not only slow music. But let`s get back to “Choked By My Own Dreams”. This is their debut full-length, it contains only 4 songs but believes me, this material will smash you… It also has a cool design, actually, it suits more for grindcore releases, but I see no problem here. I … Continue reading Rato Triste – Choked By My Own Dreams

First Days Of Humanity – Lithic / Wounds Leaking Coagulated Sludge

This one-man project started as a joke but with time, this mutilated mess has transformed into something more serious. Here is a tape with 2 EPs from 2022, that was released by mighty Grindfather prod. About 20 minutes of solid filth and loud noise. So what you say, shall we begin?) The first stuff (Lithic) is very LDOH oriented… Crazy blastbeats and the bright sonorous sound of the snare drum (yes I know that all these are just sampled drums, but hey, dude done a really nice job here). Wicked pitch-shifted vocal but most of all I love that monstrous … Continue reading First Days Of Humanity – Lithic / Wounds Leaking Coagulated Sludge

Blue Holocaust / Morgue Breath

I remember that this split popped up very suddenly… To say I was surprised is to say nothing. Two awesome bands with great people in one record! This stuff is so toxic and full of rough tunes and dangerous vibrations! These are defiantly winners of “Top Of The Pops”! Usually, Blue Holocaust dedicated their songs to slather stories, cannibals, zombies, and other characters, but today these French freaks decided to use themes of a post-apocalyptic world. Of course, guys used some intros from old B movies, and guess what, they are so good and fit perfectly into this mess. Like … Continue reading Blue Holocaust / Morgue Breath

Gastronomic Error / Masticated Polyps

This split was 2 years in the making… and the result is very harsh and dangerous. These 13 minutes will be a real test for your brain. On one side we have a Gastronomic Error a noisecore that can make your ears bleeds, and on the second Masticated Polyps gorenoise project that will make you puke! Will dare you to play such a record? 😉 Let`s warm up with some noise. Canadian trio Gastronomic Error recorded a really dense portion of chaos. This is a “play fast, and scream your lungs out” noisecore. The bass is overloaded with distortion, and … Continue reading Gastronomic Error / Masticated Polyps

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…….?

Thanatopsis – Fidelis Ad Mortem

When I heard that Thanatopsis are back from the hiatus I was really happy. That nasty duo knows how to make good stuff. So “Fidelis Ad Mortem” is their first recorded material since 2012, and we have here 15 minutes of solid and raw goregrind. Can`t say that I was surprised by this cover art… this is a very common approach for this genre, all these human remains and blood, nothing new but on the other side this is a tribute to the genre. Despite the fact that Thanatopsis is an international project (Brazil/Sweden) music of this squad has every … Continue reading Thanatopsis – Fidelis Ad Mortem

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

Golem of Gore​/​Lipoma

I think there is no need for a long introduction. Both bands became pretty famous in the last few years… But I want to highlight that this split CD contains really top shit! Golem Of Gore (Italy) and Lipoma (USA) did their best! So let`s start with G.O.G. side! Holy shit! This is a really heavy one… This noise could be compared with the creature from the Blob movie, this huge mess will crash you and melt your bones! You can disagree with me, but I think the idea to add a guitar player was damn right! The sound became … Continue reading Golem of Gore​/​Lipoma

Depopulation Department – Starvation

What do you know about the Spanish crust punk scene? They have so many cool bands, and even newcomers are playing bloody good stuff! I can`t say that Depopulation Department is new in this deal, this band consists of real veterans of the scene (Avulsed, Haemorrhage, Ultimo Gobierno). Last year these guys released a new mini-album “Starvation”… this work has 8 songs of the harsh unstoppable crust. There are no dark melodies, stupid samples, weird additional instruments, and other modern things… we have here just straight angry, and fast music! To be honest, these are pretty brutal tunes, and I … Continue reading Depopulation Department – Starvation

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

Vomitoma / Urine Festival

Okay, boys and girls today we have something really nasty. This 7″ is full of filth and perversions. From one side we have dirty gorenoise from Vomitoma and from another lost and found tracks from the legendary cybergore duo Urine Festival! I think this is a great present for all harsh maniacs! So let`s taste it! The US part of this split is remarkable in its dense sound and pitch-shifter vocals. Short but loud songs will slice your brain piece by piece. Down-tuned bass on the background making this mess really monstrous, and the drum-machine sound will drill your mind … Continue reading Vomitoma / Urine Festival

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

Turtle Rage – Early Years

Turtle Rage is a German fastcore/thrashcore band that is making nice and fast music and it also using a lot of Ninja Turtles temes in their music/arts. So to do this review I ordered a pizza, ahaha! So what this LP is all about? This is a compilation of the early works of this squad, all in all, we have 62 tracks. But not only music of Turtle Rage brings joy, just look at the cover art, I bet it will make you smile or laugh. So what you`ll say? Let`s start, right? I don`t know how about you guys … Continue reading Turtle Rage – Early Years

FesterDecay – Carcasses Revenge

FesterDecay is a Japanese grind machine that was formed 8 years ago. The boys profess the cult of the old-school genres like gore, death metal, and grindcore. In the first two years, they released two demos that were re-released by Grindfather prod last year. Carcasses Revenge consists of raw material that was recorded in 2016-2017, all in all, 10 songs of pure brutality and fun! This cover art is a tribute to the iconic “Reek of Putrefaction” album. Absolutely disgusting collage of many humans remains… that will definitely scare “normal people”, haha! Generally, material from both demos was created in … Continue reading FesterDecay – Carcasses Revenge

Needful Things / Controlled Existence

So we have today a 100% Czech release. From one side we have real legends/veterans Needful Things from Pardubice and a bit younger band Controlled Existence from Prague. This LP was released by Psychocontrol rec (Czech Republic) and I think everything was manufactured in their local factory (not a fact it`s just my guess). Needful Things are active since 1995, during all these years guys made a lot of recordings. Must say most of them are top-notch stuff. Same with this split, their material sounds so dense and monstrous. But I won’t say that these songs are overloaded with blastbeats … Continue reading Needful Things / Controlled Existence

Emphysematous Excretion of Gangrenous Debridement / Empyaema

Gore time! I propose you to spin a very nasty split LP with me. Right now on my slipmat is lying record with Emphysematous Excretion of Gangrenous Debridement and Empyaema. These are guys from the USA and both bands are playing goregrind but in different styles. I guess that won`t tell you anything but please be patient. As 99% of releases of this genre, this split has super disgusting art with hundreds of human parts, I would say this is a pretty classic look. But the main case is about music. E.E.O.G.D. is a duo, this project consists of Andrew … Continue reading Emphysematous Excretion of Gangrenous Debridement / Empyaema

Endless Bore – Drive Not Detected

A new mini-album from Australian hardcore hooligans Endless Bore has not left my player for several days. This work is pure fire… The guys managed to record very catchy stuff. I`m absolutely in love with “Drive Not Detected”! The whole material was released as 12″ by Grindhead rec. I have a feeling that artist was influenced by old punk and hardcore when he drew this art. Everything here looks simple but very bright. I simply love it! This is not just an album, this is fucking music destruction! The energy, atmosphere, and everything here are screaming! This music will charge … Continue reading Endless Bore – Drive Not Detected

Teething – Help

Teething is one of the bands from a new wave of grindcore. These guys are mixing different genres in their music. For example, a second album (this one) has 14 songs of hardcore-infused grindcore for fans of Napalm Death and Biohazard or the late Agnostic Front. These guys also have their special character, which they have been using for some of their artworks. The whole design has a pleasant pink color, gatefold same as a CD booklet looks really awesome. You will find there all lyrics and all the additional info. Hmm, this album is truly loud with some unexpected … Continue reading Teething – Help

Cystgurgle / Hit​-​Run Drivers / Metrorrhagia / Pyosis

Let`s blast this boring morning with solid gore tunes! Right now I`m putting a massive 4-way split in my old Harman Kardon FL8350. A split that will wake up my neighbors and me, haha! We have here Cystgurgle from Thailand, Hit​-​Run Drivers, Metrorrhagia, and Pyosis from the different corners of the USA. So let`s begin! Cystgurgle starts with a dirty wall of blastbeats and ultra-distorted vocals. This material is more gorenoise (dark side) of this band. Everything is messed up, the guitar is horribly cluttered, you can only hear the sonorous sound of the snare drum (actually, it sounds more … Continue reading Cystgurgle / Hit​-​Run Drivers / Metrorrhagia / Pyosis

Rumor Kontrol – Here Are The Facts

Monday is for powerviolence! This genre has a long history, it has its own heroes and stars. This genre is still popular there are a lot of new bands and Rumor Kontrol is one of them. To be accurate this is not a straight pv, it has a lot of old-school hardcore and grindcore. But anyway looks like this band (and the label which released it) is very much in DIY movement. Look at this tape, the label Let Them Eat Tapes made everything very simple but interesting. Especially I love the print on the cassettes it looks delicious! This … Continue reading Rumor Kontrol – Here Are The Facts

Extreme Decay – Downfall Of A God Complex

Extreme Decay is a legendary grindcore band from Indonesia. Last year became for them very productive and a landmark, they released a new album. This band is far from Agathocles (if you know what I mean) so every new record is like a good present for the fans. But let`s go back to “Downfall Of A God Complex”. The guys managed to record 22 new songs, and this stuff is really solid! Also, I want to admit that this record sounds very well, the material is not amateurish or goofy, we have here serious grindcore. Grindcore with good lyrics, lyrics … Continue reading Extreme Decay – Downfall Of A God Complex

Jardim De Flores – Defloraison

This is not a new release but I found it interesting. Korean grindcore is a pretty rare thing. That`s why I want to share this record with you guys. After the first spin, I had a strong feeling that I heard this style before. These structures and furious tunes were familiar to me. So I started digging and found out that Jardim De Flores is a project of a real grind veteran Hoonee Jo (Mortalized, Takafumi Matsubara, Banran). The puzzle was complete! This EP was released more than 3 years ago and since that Hoonee Jo didn`t record anything new. … Continue reading Jardim De Flores – Defloraison

V​ô​mito / Traqueomalacia

Brazilian gore has its special sound and atmosphere, the same as grindcore and crust. The scene of that beautiful country is pretty unique, some people love it some no… but personally I`m a big fan of Brazilian grind. For this shiny morning, I want to spin a disgusting split with legendary V​ô​mito and Traqueomalacia. After a long lethargic sleep, V​ô​mito are back with new songs. This is their first recording since 2000. I have to warn you, this is pretty raw stuff, with not perfect production and sound. But this bare material shows you the soul of the band. Simple … Continue reading V​ô​mito / Traqueomalacia

Vile Species – Against the Values of Civilization

Last fall our Greek friends Vile Species released their new album “Against the Values of Civilization”. I`m tracking these guys from the begging and must say that their music skills rise and rise with every new recording. Greek grindcore and crust mostly mixed with black metal, but not this time. Our heroes are playing straight grindcore. The artwork for this full-length was made by Lethargos. What can I say, this worm/snake skeleton looks really ugly and dreadful… The artist made his task really well. And now let’s look at what we have inside. Guys pleasantly surprised me with a really … Continue reading Vile Species – Against the Values of Civilization

Nasum – Blasting Shit To Bits

Without a doubt, Nasum is a legend of the grindcore world. These guys left a huge heritage for the next generations. I bet that many fans were happy when Selfmadegod rec announced DVD and then a full recording of the last show of Nasum. Back in 2012 guys gathered again and made a huge tour in memory of Mieszko. The final gig was held at Debaser Medis in Stockholm, Sweden October 6, of the same year. That night guys played 33 best songs from the band’s discography. Keijo (Rotten Sound) joined the team as a vocalist. In my opinion that … Continue reading Nasum – Blasting Shit To Bits
