All Over The Face – Like a Bull

This was one of those unexpected promos; they are rare in my practice. Guys from Switzerland sent me a big parcel with their debut album “Like a Bull”. I was surprised when I opened it, there was both the LP and CD version of this full length… I must admit not every day you receive 2 formats of one release. So as I said All Over The Face are from Switzerland, they came together 5 years ago, not sure if I can still call them an active band. During their years of existence they played a bunch of gigs and … Continue reading All Over The Face – Like a Bull

Insomnia Isterica – Anthology Of Alcoholic Beverages

My old friends from Insomnia Isterica finally released a discography! Finally we’re able to enjoy the noise without switching all 7 eps on our turntables, ha! The “Anthology Of Alcoholic Beverages” was realized on CD and cassette. I was lucky enough to get a copy of the tape, so with this write up I will cover the release from Grindfather Prod. Funny thing, this cassette looks like it’s pro made (by a factory) but I definitely know that this is a diy release. Recording and all prints were made by punk hands, and that is impressive. But, all this talk … Continue reading Insomnia Isterica – Anthology Of Alcoholic Beverages

Unpalatable Gore Offering 4 way split!

The “Unpalatable Gore Offering” is the fourth split from Choothar Tapes. This time Elliot Smith put together 4 bands from different and dark corners of our shitty planet. Art for this noisy tape was made with the use of lovely pink and grey colors. And fuck yeah, everything looks so cute, hahaha! First band in this split is Meatus. As many of you may know, this is a one man project with Joe (Violent Gorge, Archagathus) in charge. Usually the noise of this band stands out with its messy, raw and low sound. But these 6 songs have pretty shitty … Continue reading Unpalatable Gore Offering 4 way split!

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)

Precocious Gargling Audacity (4-way split)

About a year ago Choothar Tapes started to release these kind of splits. To date, they have released 5 splits in this series (they are united by a similar design and also Nasty Face is on each of these tapes). So for this noise journey we will start with this yellow (like piss) 4-way split which was released in the middle of last summer. This mess starts with good low vomit tunes from French Grossel. These bastards found their own way to curb raw primitive rhythms and sounds. These songs are full of groove and fun tunes and energy. I … Continue reading Precocious Gargling Audacity (4-way split)

Embalming Theatre – The Beast Collection (Power it Up)

Okay boys and girls let’s sit around the fire and relax… Let me tell you the bloody story about the adventures of some maniacs,different disgusting things and many other interesting stories. The Beast Collection is like a book (okay audio book) with many scary stories. Here you’ll find songs from splits with Mesrine, Dead, FUBAR, Fondlecorpse and the Sadisticannibal ep. And if I understand it right all this material is united by one song about James Young. The design for this tape was made with pieces from each release involved here (by the way this art was made by one … Continue reading Embalming Theatre – The Beast Collection (Power it Up)

Embalming Theatre – Exquisite Cadaveric Hormon Cocktail (Power It Up)

This tape had to take a long trip from Germany (nice people from Power it Up send it to me) before eventually falling into my tape player, hehe)). This is not a new record but it is definitely a pretty nice and lovely tape. It is sort of a dreadful monster pregnant with two very ugly babies… “Exquisite Cadaveric Hormon Cocktail” absorbed songs from the mini album “Hormones From The Dead” and the split-CD with Torture Incident. In total we have 20 songs about different strange, horror, nasty and creepy things. The tape comes with both cover artworks so that … Continue reading Embalming Theatre – Exquisite Cadaveric Hormon Cocktail (Power It Up)

Insomnia Isterica / Grossel

This is one of those splits that I’ve been waiting for a long time. This is because of two solid representatives of European grind core scene (we will talk about them a little bit later). The split was designed by the vocalist of Insomnia Isterica, his style is so unique that it is hard not to recognize it. This time he managed to insert a big amount of cute characters in one picture. All these punk zombies look very funny to me and if you look at them more carefully, you won’t find two similar characters. Switzerland is famous not … Continue reading Insomnia Isterica / Grossel

L’è Tütt Folklor Records!

L’è Tütt Folklor Records is a DIY label founded by Attila and Giulio in 2003 in the Onsernone Valley (Switzerland).At first it was just a logo and a name on the back covers of the self produced cd-r’s and tapes of Attila’s and Giulio’s first bands. Then, with the inception of Insomnia Isterica, the label started to get more (pro)active. Building connections and trading with friends from other countries was the first stage to get to know how the DIY network operates. Afterwards, LTFR started to launch and join DIY collaborations and coproductions.L’è Tütt Folklor Records mainly focuses on grindcore … Continue reading L’è Tütt Folklor Records!
