Misguided – S/T

Guess what? Today I wanna show an interesting debut. Self-titled EP from nice Polish trio Misguided. Guys are young and ambitious. In their music, they are mixing a lot of different extreme genres, and they do it well (yep). This first release has only 8 songs, but it`s more than enough to understand what Misguided is all about. The main design has a dangerous red color and a nice unrolled backward skull. A small booklet and info are here too. From the first look, everything is made in a very minimalistic style but wait until you put this CD into … Continue reading Misguided – S/T

Dark Horse – Trauma​​-​​Taught Self​​-​​Destruct

Sydney’s hardcore/crust maniacs Dark Horse are back with a brand new album! Trauma​​-​​Taught Self​​-​​Destruct is their 3d album, and I’m expecting a lot from it. We have here 12 songs wrapped in the nice gloomy cover art. Must say that the music is pretty dark, especially in comparison with the first album. Everything (CDs and vinyl) was released by Grindhead Records (another Australian music maniac). So as you see we have here 100% Australian product, hehe… Actually, I really waited for this album, and what I heard wasn`t that what I expected. I don`t know what the hell happened but … Continue reading Dark Horse – Trauma​​-​​Taught Self​​-​​Destruct

Golem of Gore, Redundant Protoplasm, Gore, Pulmonary Fibrosis

What can be better than a good gore CD on this cold evening? Right, nothing! Can`t say that this is just a regular release because we have here 4 huge portions of nasty music from Europe and both Americas! As you can see the design of this split is very sick and charged with maggots, fetuses, and other human remains. Disgusting, isn’t it?) I don’t want to seem tactless, I don`t want to talk too much about aspects of this record (there should be some dark moments that you need to explore for your own), I already want to start … Continue reading Golem of Gore, Redundant Protoplasm, Gore, Pulmonary Fibrosis

Junko Furuta / Statist

Today I want to unpack a small DIY release. This is a split CDr with US grinders Junko Furuta and Statist from Ukraine. I bet that both bands are not well known to our readers so it`s a nice opportunity to show their noise to the world. So let`s start. Hm, and the Americans are lucky to open this split. Guys proved that even a duo can play harshly. Their grindcore is dense and loud. Yes, this music has not a brilliant production but this is what I like in Junko Furuta. The guitar has a pretty standard tone, but … Continue reading Junko Furuta / Statist

Grind За**ісь Party # 11

Суботнього жовтневого вечора (23.10.21) відбулась довгочікувана 11та вечірка під стягом Grind За**ісь Party. В наші непрості часи цей відомий двіж, як свіжий ковток хорошого шуму. На данний захід приїхали гурти з різних кінців нашої країни, а також гості з Нідерланд. Коротко, було весело, прийшло чимало знайомих облич (не дивлячись на робочий день), звук порадував, післясмак від 11го івенту лишився приємним. Але давайте по порядку. Розпочинали вечір молодики з Rectal Surveillance. Команда нова і це трохи дається в знаки, початок їх виступу вийшов трохи всратим, довге інтро, потім інше… але загалом команда розігріла натовп непогано, хай хоч і їхня музика зовсім … Continue reading Grind За**ісь Party # 11

Negativ Null – Kategorisch Aggressiv

Negativ Null was a band from Germany, these guys were oriented on the extreme hardcore genre (namely powerviolence). “Kategorisch Aggressiv” is the last their work and this sound bomb was dropped in 2017 (thanks for the tape Hackebeil Records). First of all, this is an excellent example of a modern pv with great old-school artwork and with a bit more than 2 dozen songs. Second is its wicked spirit! Yep guys, this is a f***g punch right into the face. All these songs are full of hate and aggression, damn good stuff must say. All production is solid, the sound … Continue reading Negativ Null – Kategorisch Aggressiv

Nganga – Duct Tape on Eyes and Mouth

“London is the capital of Great Britain!” 😉 And it`s also a city of good grind squads and festivals. As you may know, GB is full of cool bands, and today I want to introduce you Nganga – a new grind name in the UK underground. The name of this band is a term for herbalist or spiritual healer in many African societies, and the cover image of this tape release looks like a bad trip after some special herbs, haha! Guys call their style “Matamoronic deathgore”, not sure what the hell that means but these 4 guys know how … Continue reading Nganga – Duct Tape on Eyes and Mouth

Sick Destroyer – promo 2021

Sick Destroyer is one more name in the legion of the Czech grindcore scene. This promo is something like a sneak peek at their future splits with US noise monsters Reeking Cross, Tantalum, and Czech bombers Insistent. This material is short (all tracks are under 1 minute) but very powerful and live. Sorry to say but, I don`t know the artist who drew this art, but he did a damn sick job! This rotten remains and maggots in the suit remind us how people can hide their real faces behind the good looks. Really lovely cover… The music part of … Continue reading Sick Destroyer – promo 2021

Fecalizer – Wendigo

Hola boys and girls today I want to talk about the last EP of Mexican grinders Fecalizer. This band is not new at all, the guys have almost 20 years of experience, but they are still not very known in the rest of the world. Guys are playing lo-fi goregrind with many nasty themes (but what would you expect from a band with such name? ;)). This new work is something like a step aside from classical gore guts/blood/corpses things. Not sure if all of you know but “Wendigo” is a mystical/mythological creature from Indians folklore (North American Indians). And … Continue reading Fecalizer – Wendigo

Endless Bore / Numbskull

I bet that most of you missed this small release, right? And today I want to make amends for this oversight. Both bands are from Australia, both are playing extreme kinds of hardcore… Well yes maybe this tape looks like many other fast releases but to be honest this one hooked me up with its insane energy and sincerity. Endless Bore starts this fight. What can I say, their hardcore have a great charge of groove and energy. Actually, this is more thrashcore than classical hardcore, but anyway, this noise is hot! Believe me, these are awesome tunes for the … Continue reading Endless Bore / Numbskull

Tantalum – Survival

Today I propose you to read about the second release of Tantalum. This is an extremely talented grindcore formation from the USA (Texas) with members of Cryptic Void, Mindboil, Holy Money, 50/50, and more. The visual part of this lovely EP reminds me of illustrations of old science fiction novels by authors such as Isaac Asimov, Robert Sheckley, Robert Anson Heinlein. This is really not a standard art as for a grindcore release and I love the result! You can not believe me but this small vinyl is full of aggression and hate, these 13 songs are a trip to … Continue reading Tantalum – Survival

Eastwood – Antibiose

We talked about German grindcore so many times, we did so many interviews with and reviews on… but that damn country surprises me each fucking time, haha! And here we are again, haha, fresh blasting madness right into your face! Ok ok, Eastwood is not a new name (guys are active for almost 10 years) but, they managed to record/release a full album only this year. But better late than never, hehe) So Antibiose is a pack with 17 hyper-blasting songs and with interesting cover art. The artist drew something like microphotography of… damn I don`t have a clue wtf … Continue reading Eastwood – Antibiose

Järnbörd – Gör om, gör fel

After 4 years of silence Swedish grind commando Järnbörd are back with new material. Gör om, gör fel (Do it again, do it wrong) is the first full length of this wonderful band. What can I say, I was confused by the cover art, it`s hard to believe that such a beautiful photo can hide something that wild, haha! Swedish quality and power, the bands from that country never disappointed. On this CD you will find 10 (+bonus) tracks of freaking furious grindcore with brand sound, and at this point, I could finish but… The energy of this record is … Continue reading Järnbörd – Gör om, gör fel

Agathocles / Heraclides

This tape showed up just a day ago, my mailman kindly delivered it right into my hands. This is a very fresh release with iconic Agathocles and new blood from Singapore – Heraclides. The tape is damn short but interesting and cheerful. Belgian mince veterans start this split with damn raw song. Guys used only two songs for this work… and I don`t really know what to say about it, because I`ve talked about this band so many times, haha. So the sound is freaking raw, the first track “Piss On Flemish Myths ” is aggressive and nice, nothing outstanding, … Continue reading Agathocles / Heraclides

Cloacal Protuberance – Birth Of Protuberance

Cloacal Protuberance is a gore project from the USA. This debut stuff was recorded live, and must say the result is very cool. I think that is because members of CP played/playing in Invidiosus, Rottenness, ex-Deterioration, Violence Condoned, as you may see these boys know how to make a nice noise. As, almost all, bands in this genre guys used a disgusting image for the cover… nothing new, but I like the final result. I know that everything here is made in DIY way and more of the riffs is improvisation, but damn, this shit is loud, haha! Yes, generally … Continue reading Cloacal Protuberance – Birth Of Protuberance


Italians who don’t know how to have fun released a new EP! I remember this band since they released their debut 1 sided LP… and must say that new material is f***g amazing! With each new release, the powerviolence of this band becomes stronger and stronger. Don`t be fooled with such simple cover art… the main hell is inside! When the needle touches that pink (yep the record is pink) surface, uhhh, everything begins. This music is so intensive, fast, and ridiculously angry, damn, I love it! It`s a huge punch right into your face, ha! “II” has all attributes … Continue reading ANF – II

System Collapse – From Arrogance To Ruins

From Arrogance To Ruins is a 3d release from the young German punks System Collapse. Guys are playing blackened crust with strong influences from Tragedy, M40, and mode aggressive crust like Vision of War. This tape has a typical design for the crust genre. Black and white colors, the image of the huge factory that is polluting our air, and so on. Looks like guys printed these cassettes only for friends and for promotion because there were made only 30 copies. Anyway despite the modesty, the release looks good. This story begins with a really nice and atmospheric intro, these … Continue reading System Collapse – From Arrogance To Ruins

Cancerous Social Thoughts – Distopia

Hard to believe but I didn’t know anything about the grind scene of Paraguay, till this day. Here is a young trio that started 4 years ago, for this release they recorded 11 old school songs. And thanks to Wise Grinds Records I`m holding this tape in my hands. What can I say, this is a flashback to the roots of the genre. The guys managed to create material with old spirit, sound, and riffs. The tape has old fashioned design (gas mask, air pollution, and so on) and a nice color balance, the green shell of the cassette looks … Continue reading Cancerous Social Thoughts – Distopia

Nauseate – Tales of Groaning Existence

At the end of last year Indian grinders Nauseate released their first full length. This is LP worth of checking because: a – grindcore genre in India is pretty rare thing, b – the album has strong material. About the visual part… Not sure what is doing Catalonia`s Almogabars in the image, as far as I know, they have nothing in common with India, but generally, this image looks good. For this work guys created and recorded 33 songs (an impressive amount). Must say, that these songs sound really nice, with old-school vibes and sound, and also this is the … Continue reading Nauseate – Tales of Groaning Existence

Hoggod – Demo

With each year Polish scene became bigger and bigger. Here are the newcomers – Hoggod! The band is a trion and they based in Bialystok city. Their lyric is sick, nasty and their sound is low and disgusting. This demo was released digitally last year, but only now our guys decided to release it on tape, so let`s see what we got here. Just look at this cover art and you will understand the way of thoughts of the Hoggod. Yes, these boys are playing nice and groovy A political goregrind. I can`t say that the general sound is very … Continue reading Hoggod – Demo

Dirty flashbacks from the grindest days! The full report, OEF 2021!

Have you heard the news? Both Branson and Bezos have now gone to space. Guess what? None of these posers attended Obscene Extreme Festival 2021. But we did. Was it worth it? Oh yes! As you might know the situation in the world today is very unstable and uncertain and we hadn`t had any fun for a long time, so we were really hungry for live shows and festivals. The moment Obscene Extreme Festival announced Schirenc plays Pungent Stench I already knew – we`re going to the Czech Republic! Further announcements only strengthened our determination to get there this year. … Continue reading Dirty flashbacks from the grindest days! The full report, OEF 2021!

Konsensus – New Age Of Terror

Today I want to talk about the debut EP from one interesting Greek band. Konsensus is just one man mechanism, but that dude managed to create a very nice noise. Visually this release looks pretty premitive. Photo of man with gas mask… simple logo and DIY CDr… But it`s just a debut release so I don`t want to judge it too hard. This Greek maniac recorded 6, more or less, short songs, not much, but that is more than enough to get acquainted with “New Age Of Terror”. First of all I want to notice that this guy is a … Continue reading Konsensus – New Age Of Terror

Chadhel / Assiduous Assault

If you love fast and chaotic grindcore, this split is for you! This CD with the US and Canadian grind freaks brings us total mind destruction. So let’s spin this mdf! Chadhel are short and concise. Great speed and furious energy are the main foundation stones of this record. The general sound is massive, this is not exactly my cup of tea, but the sound engineer did awesome work! The sharp guitar sound and same dangerous riffs simply ripping off pieces of your flesh. Won’t say that this screaming vocal is a strong side of this recording session, but it`s … Continue reading Chadhel / Assiduous Assault

VHS – Gore From Beyond the Stars

Canadian horror maniacs are here to smash us with their 4th full length! Must say “Gore From Beyond the Stars” surprised me. This is very balanced, atmospheric, interesting, and funny work. Cover art is worthy of review as well. Green as hell, with a classical cosmic horror theme, a great melting astronaut, maybe I`m sick, but this image makes me smile, haha! I think this album is a top work in VHS discography. Excellent guitar and bass sound, great solos, simple but great riffing, and absolutely unboring material! Deep and ugly growl, which tells us the story about different creatures … Continue reading VHS – Gore From Beyond the Stars

Egggore / Pharmacist

I`m holding in my hands a brand new split with two interesting bands. Yes, Pharmacist is well known now but Egggore is not (so it will be nice to show you these guys). Both bands are very different and that makes this CD even better. From one side we have groovy goregrind, from the other old death grind. Also I want you to look closely at this cover art. This sick stuff was created by gore master Pierre (Blue Holocaust/BrainDead zine). Super pathological and crazy-looking work that fits this split for all 100%! Let’s start with the Czech band Egggore. … Continue reading Egggore / Pharmacist

Unrested – Dosis De Realidad

Unrested is a new grind band from Spain. But this not a usual newcomers, this squad consists of musicians from Convulsions, Denak, and Tu Carne. So as you can see these guys know how to make us happy, ha! The cover art of this LP is based on an old movie “Clockwork Orange” (at least the main character), the image looks unprofessional, and I find this moment very cool. This band has a very strong DIY spirit in design and music, which I really like. Like the other grindcore bands from Spain Unrested is very emotional. But also guys blast … Continue reading Unrested – Dosis De Realidad

Schismopathic – The Human Legacy

Schismopathic is a very old Polish grind band, everything starts in 1988(!). The band was gone somewhere at the beginning of the 90th. Now they are back with a brand new album! “The Human Legacy” is classical in many meanings, the cover of it has a classical grind theme, some with the lyrics. Nothing outstanding but what do you want from veterans? The re-issue of the old material and this new LP was released by Selfmadegod rec, I think guys will work with this label in the future. So what does this CD have inside? The Human Legacy has 12 … Continue reading Schismopathic – The Human Legacy
