Whammer – S/T

It’s been a while since I’ve sat down to review a cassette, so it’s time to fix that! Whammer is a perfect candidate for this mission. This band is new but, the band members have a lot of experience. This squad features members of Doperunner, Grunt & Abberant, familiar names, right?) This self-titled work contains only 4 songs, that’s not much but we have what we have. However  this band differs from the aforementioned bands, I guess I can say that Whammer get their roots from old school Metal/Punk and Grind. You can even look at the cover art and … Continue reading Whammer – S/T

Always Never Fun / Forged (Grindpromotion Records)

This split is a pretty nice piece. Each band comes with a different variation of poverviolence, each one has some time to blast, but not enough time to become monotonous and boring as it probably would be if it were full length, for example. Italian punks from ANF start out this split with some of their wildest tunes. “Plastic Ground” was a great choice to begin this set. It’s fast, sometimes groovy, and furious. Don`t get me wrong – all of the next tracks are cool too. Especially “Pollution Nightmare” with its pumping grinding energy and a few swing hardcore … Continue reading Always Never Fun / Forged (Grindpromotion Records)

Durian / God’s America (Bloody Scythe Records)

First thought, which I had in my mind when I looked at this 7″ vinyl was “who the hell came up with an idea to create this “checkerboard” art?! haha. Second thought was “oh shit, this gonna be a really dangerous and kickass release”, because both bands are truly crazy. That’s why I`m waiting for a good and powerful portion of energy from this 7”… New Jersey guys Durian are the first band on this split that will drill my brain. These guys sound seriously evil on this recording, the riffing has ugly primitive (sometimes even atmospheric) taste. Blast beats … Continue reading Durian / God’s America (Bloody Scythe Records)

Nak’ay / Pizza Hi Five

Grind addicts like me spend a lot of time on the internet searching for good noise. Despite the fact that this is an old release, Nak’ay / Pizza Hi Five was one of these split that I was excited to find back in 2015. I listened to it on bandcamp tons of times, this really good noise, years after I finally got a hard copy from Psychocontrol Records and damn, that day I was happiest freak in this part of the world. One of the first things that caught me was this silly art. It reminds me covers from thrash … Continue reading Nak’ay / Pizza Hi Five

Haggus / Inopexia / Pulmonary Fibrosis

I really love when a few nasty bands gather together and do splits or compilation or whatever. Originally this is an old split, it was released on tape a year go. Hard to understand why, but that wasn`t enough for the bands and labels, so they decided to release a vinyl version of it as well. This fresh release has different cover art and was released on a heavy one sided LP. The new art is so fucking cool, it looks a million times better than the old cheesy corpse art, ha! The guys from Rudolph (Рудольф) band did a … Continue reading Haggus / Inopexia / Pulmonary Fibrosis

P.L.F.‎- Jackhammering Deathblow of Nightmarish Trepidation! CD version!

These Houston monsters of Grindcore mayhem refuse to settle for anything other than pure, unleashed Grindcore (Naplam Death/Carcass) tinged with a raw death metal punishment of classic Kreator. This new recording devastates with whirlwind, raw guitars and guttural puking vocals by founding member Dave Callier. Bryan Fajardo‘s precise, jaw dropping attack on the drums delivers as always, melting ears and stirring a sense of pure awe at his talent. One of the best in extreme music. This band relies on an absolute dedication and love for the genre. Truly one of the best going, and likely, one of the best … Continue reading P.L.F.‎- Jackhammering Deathblow of Nightmarish Trepidation! CD version!
