Rato Triste – Choked By My Own Dreams

Just from the heart of the Czech Republic – Rato Triste! Filthy, loud, and super heavy sludge brigade from Prague! But that`s not all, this band has badass guys from Controlled Existence, Morbid Angel Dust, Sick Destroyer etc… so as you see these members know how to play not only slow music. But let`s get back to “Choked By My Own Dreams”. This is their debut full-length, it contains only 4 songs but believes me, this material will smash you… It also has a cool design, actually, it suits more for grindcore releases, but I see no problem here. I … Continue reading Rato Triste – Choked By My Own Dreams

Blue Holocaust / Morgue Breath

I remember that this split popped up very suddenly… To say I was surprised is to say nothing. Two awesome bands with great people in one record! This stuff is so toxic and full of rough tunes and dangerous vibrations! These are defiantly winners of “Top Of The Pops”! Usually, Blue Holocaust dedicated their songs to slather stories, cannibals, zombies, and other characters, but today these French freaks decided to use themes of a post-apocalyptic world. Of course, guys used some intros from old B movies, and guess what, they are so good and fit perfectly into this mess. Like … Continue reading Blue Holocaust / Morgue Breath

Gastronomic Error / Masticated Polyps

This split was 2 years in the making… and the result is very harsh and dangerous. These 13 minutes will be a real test for your brain. On one side we have a Gastronomic Error a noisecore that can make your ears bleeds, and on the second Masticated Polyps gorenoise project that will make you puke! Will dare you to play such a record? 😉 Let`s warm up with some noise. Canadian trio Gastronomic Error recorded a really dense portion of chaos. This is a “play fast, and scream your lungs out” noisecore. The bass is overloaded with distortion, and … Continue reading Gastronomic Error / Masticated Polyps

Beasters – Alienated by Solidarity

Here is a second EP of Philly’s hypertech grindheads Beasters. This material was released in 2019 but it is still hot and actual. Unfortunately, I don`t know if this band is still around, the last post on their page was made 3 years ago… but I hope it`s just a hiatus. Anyway, this material blew my mind and that`s why I want to share this EP with you guys! To be honest I was fucking surprised after the first spin of this small release. This shit rips and rips hard, haha! Every track is intensive, with a good dynamic and … Continue reading Beasters – Alienated by Solidarity

Bandit – Siege of Self

The Philadelphian trio Bandit finally released their new album. “Siege of Self” is something they have never done before. This record is more complicated, more aggressive, and crazy. You really need to be prepared for such music, hehe! It’s also a good example of modern extreme music… The visual part of this work may look simple, but I found it very elegant. Just look at this art during listening to the records and the content of the picture will be revealed to you. Yes, Bandit made a damn puzzling album this time, but I love not-unusual and tricky stuff. On … Continue reading Bandit – Siege of Self

Sidetracked / xSavagex

I think we need more powerviolence at our small site. Today I want to play and write my thoughts about a nice split with Sidetracked from Washington and xSavagex from Seattle. These bands are not from the 90th, they are more or less new, but both have an old spirit of the old and iconic bands. This small piece of plastic charged with really incredible energy! And I can’t choose/highlight only 1 band because A and B sides are equal. Sidetracked side is damn aggressive and fast. All tracks are short (which reminds me noisecore approach) but at the same … Continue reading Sidetracked / xSavagex

Depopulation Department – Starvation

What do you know about the Spanish crust punk scene? They have so many cool bands, and even newcomers are playing bloody good stuff! I can`t say that Depopulation Department is new in this deal, this band consists of real veterans of the scene (Avulsed, Haemorrhage, Ultimo Gobierno). Last year these guys released a new mini-album “Starvation”… this work has 8 songs of the harsh unstoppable crust. There are no dark melodies, stupid samples, weird additional instruments, and other modern things… we have here just straight angry, and fast music! To be honest, these are pretty brutal tunes, and I … Continue reading Depopulation Department – Starvation

Suppression with Bastard Noise – Infernal Legions

“Suppression and Bastard Noise are two acts whose names, and reputations precede them. Lazy, overused phrases like “powerviolence,” and “noise” have been rendered meaningless with time, and completely fall short of capturing the caustic, experimental nature of this intense and violent collaboration. That said – you should know what to expect here. And those expectations will be exceeded. These two thirty-plus year veterans have pushed each other beyond convention or routine and produced a unique and remarkable album that doesn’t just stand up next to it’s creators’ venerable catalogs, but also lays to waste countless modern cookie-cutter acts who might … Continue reading Suppression with Bastard Noise – Infernal Legions

Fractured / FAGX

Today I learned something new about the Belgian and the US scene. I am pretty sure this split will be interesting for you too. So what do we have here? Fractured is a powerviolence band from Los Angeles… guys are fast and truly aggressive. FAGX (Fahrenheit AGX) is a Belgian band that existed for only a short period (1 year or so)… they played a weird mix of fastcore and mincecore. Side A – Fractured. Pretty solid amount of songs with good energy. Must say this is a good material, however, the general sound is a bit raw. Interesting fact … Continue reading Fractured / FAGX

Turtle Rage – Early Years

Turtle Rage is a German fastcore/thrashcore band that is making nice and fast music and it also using a lot of Ninja Turtles temes in their music/arts. So to do this review I ordered a pizza, ahaha! So what this LP is all about? This is a compilation of the early works of this squad, all in all, we have 62 tracks. But not only music of Turtle Rage brings joy, just look at the cover art, I bet it will make you smile or laugh. So what you`ll say? Let`s start, right? I don`t know how about you guys … Continue reading Turtle Rage – Early Years

Max/625 Thrashcore rec (27.02.23)

Good day Max! I hope you`re doing well. How the things with the label going on? Hello Alex. I hope you are safe and doing well during this horrible time.As for 625, things are going relatively well, although the recent increase in manufacturing costs, postage, etc has been really difficult. When I first started, I could make an EP for about $1.50 USD which I could then wholesale for $2.00. Now, Eps cost about $6-7 USD to manufacture, which means by the time they get to stores, the mark-up is the equivalent to $12-15 or sometimes even $20 with postage. … Continue reading Max/625 Thrashcore rec (27.02.23)
