Agathocles ‎– Fascination Of Mutilation

I really love when such old and rare stuff released again and released in the proper way. Here is a tape version of one very old (30 years!) Flexi 7”.  This small cassette looks awesome, yes it has another cover art, but I see no problem with it. Also, everything was made right with great quality, screen printed logos on the shell, the cover surprised me a bit, it was made on some kind of plastic but not on paper. To be short this is a top-notch production. As for the noise… This is an ancient live recording that was … Continue reading Agathocles ‎– Fascination Of Mutilation

Convulsions / Six​-​Score

This split may be old but this material is still hot and actual. We are going to talk about awesome bands today – Convulsions from Spain and Six-Score from Austria. Both proved that they can play grindcore, their previous releases are strong proof of that. This small split starts with 6 short compositions from Convulsions. As always guys managed to create a really strong shit! These songs are rich in pumping energy and crunchy sound. The sound is heavy and tasty. The guitar tone is pleasantly low and buzzing, the bass is loud, blasts are fast with some strong punk … Continue reading Convulsions / Six​-​Score

Trachoma – Surgical Methods for Infectious Diseases

Trachoma is not well known (yet) band from Brazil, they performed with a first EP a year ago (or maybe less), and that`s all that I know about them… Before they released their first full album that blasted my brain, haha! So again, this band is a crazy duo with totally sick minds, haha! Of course, all material, starting from the cover and ending with the last note, has a classical, for gore genre, rotten theme. Blood, guts, sick maniacs, and so on… nothing new? Maybe, but that is not a bad thing. Must say I was surprised when I … Continue reading Trachoma – Surgical Methods for Infectious Diseases

Formless Master – First Strike (Wise Grinds Records)

Formless Master is a pretty new name on the scene, but don’t be fooled the guys behind this band are very experienced. Featuring members of Gridlink, Mortalized, Deterioration, and Invidiosus this is a real killing machine! They colled their style as a “karate-grind” and you know what, this is the best definition of this music, haha! First Strike has a typic (as for grindcore genre) artwork. There are so many elements from different but cool Asian movies. Everything looks simple but nice, and I think these types of covers are not the worst. Now let`s see what this US/Japanese team … Continue reading Formless Master – First Strike (Wise Grinds Records)

Haemorrhage ‎– Emetic Cult

Today I`m going to talk about a 100% cult album in the gore genre – Emetic Cult. This is the very first album of Haemorrhage and it was released 25 (!!!) years ago. For such an epic date, this album was re-released in all formats, but I want to cover a vinyl version from Discos MeCagoEnDios (a great label which is ruled by еру ex-Denak member). This release has a high-quality cover and inner slive. Actually, I expected a gatefold variant, but the usual format is good too. There are a ton of old photos, lyrics, some additional info, and … Continue reading Haemorrhage ‎– Emetic Cult

Helvetes Jävla Skit – Satans Jävla Helvete

It`s been a while since the last review was posted, time get back to work, haha! For today’s write up I choose a debut work of Helvetes Jävla Skit. This is one-man band from Sweden with strong influence from modern extreme bands. Also, this is a debut release for Grind to Death Records, and must admit it`s not a bad start! But let`s go back to our stuff. This album has a pretty cool design, all these dead flies look calm and peaceful. And of course, this concept looks stylish. From the very first view, I thought that this work … Continue reading Helvetes Jävla Skit – Satans Jävla Helvete

Tolerance – Last Days Of Capitalism

This Finland band has been around for half of a decade. That dude recorded so much noise, but for some reason first full album he recorded only now. To be honest, I was surprised and smashed, this is one of the best works of Tolerance! The cover art of “Last Days Of Capitalism” has a nice image and very simple production. But there are 1 interesting thing, BOG released this album in 3 colors – regular black, white, and awesome pink! In my opinion, the pink color is the best choice for such brutal stuff, ha! Tolerance made 14 brain-melting … Continue reading Tolerance – Last Days Of Capitalism

Vile Species – S/T

A new day – a new debut! Today’s heroes are Vile Species from Greece. This album was released a few months but due to shitty post service, I got this CD only now. First of all, I want to mention that guys didn’t fucked up, ha!. This self-titled piece of noise good and strong work with all grindcore elements like pissed off yelling, blast beats, and classically short songs. The artwork of this CD is great too, there are no typical college or nuclear blasts with dead politicians, this drawing has a more schizophrenic theme of madness. Some of the … Continue reading Vile Species – S/T

Atrofia Cerebral – Caducidad De La Existencia

Atrofia Cerebral is a legendary noise duo from Peru! These guys started to play more than 30 (1989) years ago! I bet every noisecore fan knew this project, hehe! So today we will listen to their release “Caducidad De La Existencia”. This material was released on a business card (not the most comfortable format, must say), it contains some recording from 2015-17 years. Also, this “CD” has a very simple DIY design, everything was printed at home in office paper. But I think it`s perfect for this genre. This is a short and fast release, It has about 4 minutes … Continue reading Atrofia Cerebral – Caducidad De La Existencia

Pharmacist – Medical Renditions Of Grinding Decomposition

Here we go again! New stuff from the Japanese freaks! I don’t know how, but for the only one year of existence this project managed to release an album, ep, and few splits (crazy, isn’t it?) and, of course, now Pharmacist has a solid fan base. The cover of this work is freaking disgusting, rotten remains with maggots and melted parts, this shit will make normies puke, haha! But on the other hand, this work must have a classical gore look! It`s not a secret that people behind this band are big fans of Carcass. All material has a big … Continue reading Pharmacist – Medical Renditions Of Grinding Decomposition

Degradatus – Degradatus (Trismus Records)

Unfortunately grindcore in Ukraine it`s something exotic and rare. Every time when I see a new Ukrainian grind release I`m fucking happy and excited! So today I want to present to you a new grind project from the west part of my country  – Degradatus! This is a studio project with two-person, who actually played a lot in different bands years ago. Looks like the hunger for the grind has turned them back in the game! Unlike many other grindcore projects, Degradatus used a pretty fresh approach in the cover art. It`s a bit another looks on painful social stuff. … Continue reading Degradatus – Degradatus (Trismus Records)

Soil Of Ignorance – Stop The Madness

Soil Of Ignorance is a good grindcore band, these guys don’t do anything outside of the genre, but what they do they do well. 2020 a very active and positive year for them, first they released a split with legends Excruciating Terror and then first full length! Today I will try to cover all parts of this long-awaited album.  The cover art is built out of all the crust/grindcore standards, we have a massive collage that covers sharp themes like religion, war, greed, poverty and animal rights, and so on. Indeed, that is the base of the madness that surrounds … Continue reading Soil Of Ignorance – Stop The Madness

Paskaa Silmien Tilalla – Missä On Oikeus

Well, I`m not a huge fan of noisecore, but even this genre could surprise. Here is exactly this case. Paskaa Silmien Tilalla is join work of 3 people who live in different corners of our world. All stuff was recorded in Denmark, Finland, and Ukraine. Interesting fact,  the vocal on this record was done by an ex-member of Skruta/Gaz 66 bands, I was sure that that guy ended with music years ago. I`m pretty sure that this project is gone now, but it`s cool that I got this tape for the review. So let’s begin! All together we have here … Continue reading Paskaa Silmien Tilalla – Missä On Oikeus

Retortion Terror / Invidiosus

I found this LP among other promo stuff from Wise Grinds rec. This is a vinyl re-issue of a really nice split between Retortion Terror and Invidiosus. I have no original CD, so I can’t compare vinyl with the old release, but this fresh press looks and sounds awesome! The cover remained intact, but the sound was a bit remastered according to format requirements (because if you use CD master for the vinyl release you will get a shitty result and huge money loss). Also, this version has 2 bonus tracks 1 from each band.   This split begins with … Continue reading Retortion Terror / Invidiosus

Ona Snop – Intermittent Damnation

What comes to your mind when you hear about the town “Leeds”? Personally, for me, it`s fastcore and powerviolence sub-genres. Why? Because this is a mysterious place of power, there are so many cool bands that came from that town. Someday I will definitely visit that spot and will try to figure out what the hell is going there ;). As you may understand today’s review is about local (I mean for Leeds) band Ona Snop and its second full length “Intermittent Damnation”. I already made few reviews about their previous stuff and these guys never disappointed me, but let … Continue reading Ona Snop – Intermittent Damnation

Agathocles / Landfill (Destrukto Muzik)

Actually, I wrote so many reviews about different AG splits, that I simply run out of words, haha, but I will do my best. So this is a new split tape wich includes live stuff from Belgian veterans and raw but proper recording from Landfill. This release has a simple cover, I think guys used image from the old B movie “The Story Of Ricky”. Everything looks very DIY. And I`m afraid that`s all that I can tell you about the visual part of this split. AG side is 8 minutes long and has a live recording from 2016. First … Continue reading Agathocles / Landfill (Destrukto Muzik)

Septicemic Plague – Radioactive Melting Flesh

Goregrind actually became a really popular music genre in the USA. Some of the great new bands from this genre are from there. Bands such as First Days Of Humanity, Heinous, The County Medical Examiners, Acid Feast, and others. And today I want to add a new name to that pack. Septicemic Plague is a one-man band from Richmond (Virginia/USA). That guy started two years ago, but I didn`t see new tunes on his bandcamp, so maybe this project is dead. But anyway we have some good and nasty tunes to listen to, so… The good side of this record … Continue reading Septicemic Plague – Radioactive Melting Flesh

Suppression – Fractured Landscape

I want to tell a bit about this band, for these who are not familiar with legendary Suppression. This band was founded 28 years ago (1992) in the Virginia state. To date they got a ton of releases, they played a lot and everywhere, and I was really lucky to catch them too. Must they are very nice people who`re playing really crazy shit, haha! Needless to say that Suppression love to make experiments, and during the years guys make some grindcore records, some powerviolence, and some noisecore stuff too. “Fractured Landscape” is one of the latest releases, and it`s … Continue reading Suppression – Fractured Landscape

Crucifix Mission – S/T (Bloody Scythe Records)

The last few days I’ve listened to this tape about 6 or 8 times and obliviously I want to share my thought with you. So this self-titled tape is a strong debut from Southern California’s hardcore band Crucifix Mission. It`s short (only 5 tracks here) but robust work with simple artwork that depicting mighty Gorgon Medusa. Actually, I have nothing to say more about the look of this tape, this is well done but super usual tape release.  However, the music part of this cassette is much better! I have no idea when this recording was done and from what … Continue reading Crucifix Mission – S/T (Bloody Scythe Records)

Depressor – Hell Storms Over Earth

Do you guys remember an old deathgrind band Depressor, they were pretty active back in the 90th. Here is a discography of that band, all their legacy in one CD. Can`t say that Depressor was famous but this is not the last band on the planet Earth. They made split releases with such monsters as Agathocles and Unholy Grave. During their active phase, they created 18 songs, and the first 3 songs on this CD were previously unreleased. All songs were remastered and re-packaged, not sure about the sound it seems a bit compressed to me but the cover… The … Continue reading Depressor – Hell Storms Over Earth

Igioia / Lugubrious Children / Throat / Double Me

It`s been a while seen I write something about hardcore stuff, so here is a very nice hc split with bands from Italy, the USA, and the UK. This 4way is existing in two formats a vinyl (Here and Now rec) and tape (Destruktomuzik). I like the way how this split is designed, classical colors, classical collage with skulls, ruined town, trash, and so on… yes, it`s not a new approach but I still like it. Ah yes, actually this release is like 1 big sandwich, Italian starts (Igioia) and finish it (Double ME), and between them are British Lugubrious … Continue reading Igioia / Lugubrious Children / Throat / Double Me

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
