BOLO – Warriors Of Peace

I’m pretty late with this review. I know, but I can’t avoid writing something about this interesting album. So why is this tape so special and interesting? The fact of powerviolence in post Soviet countries is interesting in itself, because this genre is very rare there. This small band is based in the west part of Russia, these guys live in St. Petersburg, The “Warriors Of Peace” is their 5th work. And I must admit that BOLO has mutated in something different. I’m sure that this was a new page in their history. These noises are very different from their … Continue reading BOLO – Warriors Of Peace

Sram / Archagathus

Mince on my friends! This day I want to dedicate to one very popular Grind sub genre. Today I want to write something about Mincecore. As you all well know, this genre was created by big and old guys from Agathocles, but it has been 30 years already and Mincecore is still popular (at least I think so, hahaha). There is a lot of good bands nowadays and also a ton of nasty releases. Well I chose this split because I want to compare two mince bands from the different corners of our stupid planet. So here is nice friendly … Continue reading Sram / Archagathus

Obstreperous Mangling Botheration (Choothar tapes)

Goregrind much like a deadly plague,it creeps around the world… It seems that this genre became pretty popular in our small underground world. There are so many interesting new bands and new nasty releases from old names. So today I want to talk about this muddy international tape which is in my top Gore releases for this year. One tape, 4 slimy bands from Russia, Switzerland, Australia and UK. Cystoblastosis are the first who will release their noise to us. First of all I want to say that I`m feeling some small changes in their music (I guess it`s because … Continue reading Obstreperous Mangling Botheration (Choothar tapes)

Warthog – Exercise in Bad Taste (No Bread Records)

Some of my friend said that Warthog is the greatest (nowadays of course) Grind band in all of Russia. So that encouraged me to check this fact and write some words about their new tape “Exercise in Bad Taste”. Under this title are hiding 8 Grind songs (Sosed,Hey, Archgoat!, Listopad / Opyt Kresta, Hey,Verka! / Kontuziya,Heavy Metal Bez Usov / Chelovek-Flamingo / Basseiny Vmesto Hramov, Stenchcore Runner / Possibility Of Life’s Destruction (Discharge cover), Divine, Skuka / Shawehrmacht). All of these songs are wrapped up in a pretty dark cover. This dead hand which is sliced, it looks pretty spooky. … Continue reading Warthog – Exercise in Bad Taste (No Bread Records)

Weedeous Mincer ‎– Brain Devoured By Mincegore

Oh boy, the Mincegore plague poisoned Russia so quickly… Here is another new name for me, “Weedeous Mincer”. Hm, very stupid name but anyway lets dig into this record. For cover our weedeaters used a photo which depicts a Russian cop who`s breaking the law, hahah (I must admit this is a very funny and stupid picture) Also this squad consists of only two (stoned) members and this band is based in Saint Petersburg… Okay, now let’s dig into these strange noises These tunes were recorded by Farsh and Kisel (Cystoblastosis/ Camphora Monobromata etc.) in cold 2016… All 9 songs … Continue reading Weedeous Mincer ‎– Brain Devoured By Mincegore

Sram / Abortion

And one more grind split turned up on my turntable. So this time I`ll be listening to so noise from old dinosaurs Abortion (Slovakia) and young mincers from Sram (Russia). At first glance, this split attracts attention with its appearance. This collage is very unusual, stupid and great, isn it? All the pictures are cut from old Russian magazines about UFOs and other bullshit. I guess that’s why this stuff looks so rad, haha. Okay, hmm, let’s choose a side with which we’ll begin. Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, and first will be the Sram side. Well from the very first … Continue reading Sram / Abortion
