Israel, The Holocaust, And Absolute Moral Truth

Is there such a thing as an absolute moral standard? If there is, who gets to say what that moral standard is? Who gets to make it up, and where are they getting their information from? If there isn’t one, does that mean that one can do anything, or that one is never held accountable for one’s actions? If not, than by what measurement do we judge a person’s actions and set up the rules necessary for social functioning and living together?

Do we even need to set one up, aside from the arbitrary one of not killing each other for just as long as it takes for us to use each other to survive, or is their something a little bit deeper than that? Is it just hormonal/emotional? If it exists, is it universal? Does being from a different culture give you the right to kill another human being? Are there acts that absolutely everyone must always refrain from all of the time, or is there a time and place for everything?

These musings, some might say are fruitless, are what take up a large amount of my headspace. It is important that you answer all of these questions for yourself, by yourself, with as little outside influence as possible.

The next topic I wanna deal with is genocide. Not just in an abstract way, but concretely about "the" holocaust.

The Jews, after having suffered the fate they did in the hands of Europeans for hundreds of years, and even before that for millennia, finally got a homeland. The final reason was the killing and deporting of millions of them in Europe, in what is known as the Holocaust. That homeland is on a site where at the time very few Jews lived, but many believed was assigned dot them by God, the God of the Bible, Yahweh, the jealous God. To get there, Britain gave them the land, which they did not rightfully own. Many other people, considered even today subhuman by the powers backing the now formed Israeli government, live there, have proof of having lived there for thousands of years, and not religious proof, “God told us about it” sort of proof. After having gotten there, they are now submitting the people of that land to a Holocaust.

I do not believe in the legitimacy of the Israeli government. There are three main reasons for that, all of them having to do with the questions posted above.

1) If you are saying that these people deserve a homeland, and it must be protected at all costs, even if it is causing other people a genocide, then you immediately fall into the category of being a) a racist or b) someone who believes that suffering is measured in scales, like wheat or barley. Both of these things are dumb, unless you can say that the price of the starvation and death of one Jewish child is the equivalent to x amount of Palestinian children, or one for one. In which case Israel should have been abolished, because more then 6 million have died as a result of Israeli occupation since the 50’s.

2) The piece of land in question is sought to be the holy land by a certain understanding of the Bible, which talks about place names that we are not sure where to put on our lands, and in increments that we do not understand, such as the cubit. We know that the Bible is not a legitimate source of geography. We know that it is not a legitimate source for history. We know that basing your claim to a piece of land based on the Bible should not hold ANY weight in ANY international court.

3) Theocracies, including Muslim, Christian, Jainist, or any other sort should be abolished, or at least their existence voted upon. If you do not believe that Israel is a theocracy, than you are an idiot. It is not a democracy, it is not a dictatorship, it is not any sort of state, except one that is made by fundamentalist, Jewish right wing extremists.

To separate the racism and nationalism of any nation because of historical events is near sighted, to claim that Jews cannot behave like Nazis because of the holocaust is just blind. The fact that these people are being protected, and are being given money by the most powerful nation on earth, the USA, and are supported and helped by all the European nations, whom they guilt into helping because of despicable acts commited in the past is absolutely insane. Also, Palestine was a country that was easy to take over, their people, disenfranchised, so their land could be sold. The land the Jews of the Bible are talking about is actually located in Ethiopia. The mountains they are mentioning, most likely are in Ethiopia, or somewhere nearby that land. Some people know this, but are not being taken seriously, also, real Jews, the Jews of the Bible are what we today would consider black people. Jacob, Joseph, and a host of other people are specifically mentioned as being black skinned, and Samson has three strands of hair that cover his entire head, which to me sound like dreadlocks. It is true that anyone can have dreads (I got ‘em), but we only see it being ritually used in African cultures, also, in some nomadic nations who have probably seen it during their travels.

I know, this is a lot of info, and I did not present any evidence for it really, but if you are interested in it, we can discuss. Also, some of these are my personal opinion, and must be evaluated as such, I just hope you can come to conclusions that will make sense for you.

As for me, to answer the first few questions, I do believe that albeit there is no objective moral code, there is something universal and visceral and bestial about ethics. Certain things we have a gut feeling of ‘bad’, or ‘wrong’, and it is present in any culture, such things are murder, rape, genocide, taking more than what one needs, leaving people to starve, etc, etc. That these things happen in every culture is unimportant, because we as humans want bad things to happen, and precisely our gut feelings and visceral reactions are the sort of thing that make us want to do them, to experience ‘bad’ and ‘wrong’. That there are eicts about these things in every culture is all the proof I need. We must reach the lowest common denominator, something we all can agree upon, and make a universal law, a simple one, that applies top everyone. Writing it down and specifying it is of no use, because we need to iinternalize it, and indeed, we already have. I believe all of us work off of the same principles. I believe we all know wrong when we see it. So I guess I do have beliefs.

The next post will contain the grind.

So yeah, a month has passed, I moved out of the ghetto, I now live in the suburbs, so I did not post. At least I am posting now. Marci, man, that kid still has not posted, although he has school and all that shit. It's some drawing and being an artist thing, I wish I had those skills, but i do not, all I can do is play a half decent blast beat, and fuck around on this blog, so I am green with envy. And apparently move to the suburbs. Also, I am gonna be gone for 40 days and 40 nights, the only time in the year I have a set schedule, working the christmass market, as I tend to do every year, and if Marci don't post then, Ima have his balls for earrings. If you wanna meet me in person, why not come down to the London christmass market in Hyde park, I'm the guy selling all of the neat-o Hungarian folk motiff bags, all cow leather, all handmade, and all that shit.
So, I am gonna do this like many other blogs do, most notably Damaging Noise, and just have the title, the info, and the link. Whaddaya say??? I know, no rant, but I am so tired, man. Next week Ima rant and rave and carry on as well. It's gonna be holocaust realted, sure to offend everyone, left and especially right wingers, but you know, I aim to please. But I have to get drunk and put myself in the aggressive psycho headspace first.

Magus- Ruminations Of Debauchery
1991 death metal that makes 90% of today's death metal seem slow, poorly written, not that well executed and way over produced. Good recording quality, murky and misty, hard to hear the low ends. The vocals are insanely low, barked shouts, but really rude and sorta like Kataklysm. The drumming is what takes this though, insanely fast blast beats, and it just sounhds like he is having the easiest time on earth, no effort what so ever, just speed and the blast beats are louder than everything else, so, you know its good.
Underrated fucking classic.

VA- Total Scum Noise Shit Attack (Warstate, Spacegrinder, DxIxE, congenital haemmorhoids)
So, this was on the Psychotherapy traidng list for quiet some time, and I wanted to get it, too, and in 2006 oktober, I walked around with their distro list printed out, just so I can think about what to get. Anyway, I wanted this one, but did not end up getting it, and now, I downloaded it through a Russian forum for "extreme" music. This is some of the bets fucking shit that was made in 2004, seriously, raw grind and noise at its finest, I mean, other than Congenital Haemmorhoids, who fucking suck, this is like perfect. DxIxE, being a noisy raw japanese grindcore band, are one of my favorites anyway, and I will post some of their shit at one point, if I did not already, its really superb, almost Gore Beyond Necropsy like. Almost. Warstate is crusty grind, who play lots of d-beat, lo-fi, grind as fuck too, kinda on the slow side in comparisson to the other bands, but hella good. And Spacegrinder play a very good noise track on here called "Extermination", it's like, nice and spacey in the beggining and degenerates into just harsh PE shit, and the end there is copious screaming and growling. I really like this. So will you.
Feel the awesome.

Insect Warfare/ The Kill split tape
Very hard to get a hold of, this tape is 47 seconds long. The Insect Warfare side is 17 seconds, and is really, really good, for a 17 second tape. It does what it is supposed to. The Kill side, also good. What can you really say about a tape that is 47 seconds long? It has a cool cover, too.
Shoulda been a split floppy disk.

Vaccine- Demo tape
Do not know anythign about this, downloaded it, it was up on a bunch fo blogs, 5 songs, 2:12 in length, apparently power violence, almost just noise, more like grind to me, but it is super hardcore like, so I guess, if the glove fits....Very good, very noisy, very up on everyone else's blog too, but you like ours, so, get it from us. I dunno who plays in this or what, but it fucking rules. I needed a couple of listens to get my head around this one, it all just happened so quickly....
Holy shit, what just happened?

This was also taken from a blog, it was up on that guy who thought Kuolema was the bets band ever's blog, the Finnish guy ho agve a list of all of the Finnish punk band's names and what they meant...you know, that blog. I forget the name, which is a shame cuz I got this and two Kuolema early live shows off of him, which has been a great addition to my time and brain cell, also social standing murdering addiction to fast noisy music. There are no blast beats on this one. I know, getting soft. But it is really fucking fast, Genocide are like a thrash band, but mixed with d-beat, really catchy, nothing new, but played ever so fucking well, this band really does rule. Sorto are like a noise-crust band, totally incoherently played, sorta like early Kuolema in that sense, with typical Finnish vocals, you know, Donald Duck on crack. Hard to listen to, but well worth it for the Geno-side, hahahaha. Seriously, old band, great music, good speed, catchy licks, good lyrics, everything about it is good.
Finnish d-beat thrash/ total noise.

Vodka Soap- Shadow Watcher Levitations
This was given to me by Marci, and it is something new for this blog. It is a drone, atmospheric noise thing, very dark and evil, spoooooky, and all that shit. Great to lsten to while you are doing something else, like smoking weed. The word "atmospheric" gets thrown aorund a bunch, and is generally code word for incoherent, boring, non-sensical garbage, but in this case, I feel like it is very adequate. This does in fact create an atmosphere, one of being watched and of lurking around in the shadows with murderous intent. It is very abrasive to listen to, the frequencies do not really remind me of music at all. That being said, it is not harsh, per say, although it definitely is not mellow or soft. Just throwing it out there, the cover is good too, it reflects the atmosphere of this album perfectly. It contains two long ass tracks. Give it a whirl, see how you feel about it.
Drone like noise.

Intense Agonizing- Necrobiosis split
Intense Agonizing were a Hungarian death/grind band, and they apparently had like the most cult following anyone could ask for. When they broke up, after the last gig, the lights came on, and the kids in the room just looked at each other and did not know what to do next. Become Napalm Death fans?? Stop listening to grind? Stop listening to metal? Some of them did this, some of them that, but that particular bond of the underground was broken. I am told about all of this second hand, as I am too young to have seen it with my own eyes. So this is a little piece of history, people just playing what they thought sounded cool.

2010. szeptember 24., péntek


Whats up, folks? It's been a while since my last post, and Marci was not helping me out here at all, and I had a million things to do. Raisng a kid, playing in like 88888 bands, had some gigs, have an upcoming gig with Melt Banana, which should be fun, its in this ritzy ass place, too. Never thought I would play such a ritzy ass place with my crust/grind band, or any other band, really. But whatevs, business will be taken care of, asses will be handed back to people on silver plates, and I'm gonna get to see Melt Banana. That's pretty good. (Since I wrote this, another week has passed).

So instead of boring you with the trivial details of my life, let me begin my 3-part apology by first saying that I think you are a wonderful human being. Secondly, I appreciate that you come to this piece of siht blog, to listen to my and Marci's crappy music, hear our rantings and ravings and carryings on, be insulted, and still come back for more, but I guess that's what people like you are into. Thirdly, I'm gonna make it up to you. Why don't you slip on out of them clothes, if you're wearing any, relax, and listen to this shit I gotta say. Yeah, you like that, don't you? Who is your favorite blog?? Whaddaya mean KTGA????

Well, I guess they are a lot better than we are, so whatevs. By the way, I am honored to have a piece of vinyl that I am actually on, playing my crappy drums, appear on KTGA!!! Find it here.
So, on to the music.

This first thing is Count Basie, the perfect make up music. It's called a portrait of Count Basie, but it does not have his best shit on here. This man played music actively and recorded shit for more than 30 years. All of it swing, but, wait, I don't like that shit either, but give this a listen. It will make you feel good. Touch right where you need to be touched.....mmmm....yeah, like that.
And again, for disc 2.

I like to post a bunch of different kins of blast beats, to satisfy a wide array of your filthy perversions. Here is some really weird shit from Italy, called Corporal Raid, they call themselves xenomorphological goregrind, its pretty twisted shit. Its like, teched out riffs played really sloppy, with the drummer playing extra fucking fast blastbeats, but so fast he cant keep up with himself. For those times you like it fast and weird and sloppy. Which I know you do.

Anyways, this is for that dark side of you. This is the best that death metal gets. It just does not get any better. This is slow, granted, but really painful. Sound quality is not abysmal, but it's not good, not by a long shot. Might be my favorite death metal record of all time. Corpse Molestation is the name of this band, and Descension Of A Darker Deity, the name of the tape. Now learn it, slave.

For those of you suffering with premature ejaculation problems, here is this little number. It's all around the blogosphere, it is called Cogs and Sprockets, apparently it is a one man band, and none fo the songs n this demo are longer than like 25 seconds. They are all pretty cool though, kind of a novelty twist. For the premature and restless.

And for those tomes you like to get it rammed up there as fast as possible, with as little bullshit as possible, here is my favorite drummer playing with Brodequin, this one is called Festival Of Death, and it is fucking awesome, you know you need it.
If you also like to be verbally abused while at it, this is Cancer Kids 'The Possible Dream' and its a bunch of guys really, really making fun of hardcore and crust and grind people. Pretty ballsy, considering peiople have been stabbed for saying a lot les sthan this, and the music is like fucking absolutley awesome, super fast, super fucked up, neat little twists, waiting for the breakdown, too. Git it.
Bestial Raids. That is the name of a polish black metal band. In this context, it can be a euphamism for geting the dog in on it too. I have a demo I downloaded from undisclosed sources, it is raw and hateful and really like war/black stuff, and the album I own, check out the artwork, it folds out into a poster, there are like chains and gasmasks and shit involved, and there are like slogans to chant on the inside, about spirit flesh and entity. Not even kidding. Neither are they.
This is the album, this is the demo.
So the next one is also my personal rip, it is the Carcass Grinder/Fuck On The Beach split 7", and thank god I have a cd-r version, cuz I still can't rip vinyl. This is truly a master piece, CG are one of the most underrated awesome grind bands, if you liek grind, and you dont know em, or just dont have this one, do yourself a favor and get fucked. No songtitles included, pretty anonymous, dont you think? And while we are at Japanese things, here is more weird japanese shit, I got it off burning japan blog, it is the split between Poison Cola, and Blood Feast. It is sort of melodic, more punked out than anything else on this blog, and it is an absolute rager. I am only including it, cuz I heard you liek asians.
And sometimes you gotta do it for your friends. The band made me promise that I would not post this, but I will. They have a different singer now, they are a metal band, they play thrash. Metal guys. Gotta love em. This one is Concrete, firstd emo caleld Screaming Avenger. Headbanger.
Now a word form the classics. Mostly Hungarian folk I know, they dont know about Assück. I wanna correct that right now, right here. and give you their two best, Anticapital Blindspot and also, Misery Index. Yes, probably thats where they got the name. The band I mean.
Best US grindcore?? Maybe so, definitely the one I have heard the most, its like them, or Discordance Axis or Insect Warfare. If Cellgraft keep it up, they shall also be added to the list. And also, In Disgust, but first, Assück. They played in the nineties, and they rule, forever.
See for yourself, and shame on you.
This is some Hungarian folk music involving flutes. Thats kinda sexy, there are girls singing in em, all the songs are about like sex and death and social issues. It sounds like the descirption of a death metal album, but it isn't. NOt much to say, this shit rules, fi you dont like folk music, then fuck you.
Monotonous black metal. The split between Conqueror and Black Witchery, two newer school classics, they are both really awesome, one of them doesnt exist anymore, became Revenge and the other one is like, sort of in disarray. Conqueror is like chaotic and non-stop blasting, and Black Witchery is like fastcore tempo, and super duper monotonous. But its really soothing and relaxing, and really, really harsh, I always smoke weed to this one.
This next one I got off of am i mean? blog, the home of fast hardcore. This is some fats, psychotic german hardcore. Apparently it sone of his faves, and I see why. He does not seem to be updating lately, look whos talking, but he used to be super diligent, I hope everything is good with him. This Chorea and Asmodinus Leichtenhaus split EP. Its fucking good.
And this last one is Dismember's first demo. Few people know I like them, I am in love with their demos, although I do appreciate the later shit too. BUt this demo has the sickest vocalist, and in typical swedish fashion, they fuck everything up, become more melodic and kick the most talented guy, the singer, out of the band. He was fucking sick. The vocals are liek ghosts having sex, shrieking and cawing and weird the whole way through, lots of effects maybe, although I dont think so, definitely shit tons of reverb, though. Do it.

Black Metal, eh???

Since Marci posted about black metal last, I figured i'd run with it, and make it black metal week, for black metal geeks, here at the shrine of blast beat. I am not gonna post any of this new wave of black "metal" or black noise, or call it what the fuck you want. I am not such a big fan of it. I think it is well done musically, but in the end, its kind of just a joke. Black metal was, after all, metal. So I am gonna post what I think is good, and recent, or just needs mention.

First up is Proclamation from Spain, the least black metal place I can think of besides, like, Portugal, or Costa Rica. They play war metal, sounds like Blasphemy but with better riffs, and even sloppier. This is atrociously played, make no mistake, but the riffage is awesome, the sound and atmosphere are nailed right fuckin on. I have two of their CDs, and they just released a third one which looks exactly like the first two. Logo, black background, and a demonic skull with horns of some sort. Clearly these guys know and understand the importance of keeping it real. This second CD, pictured above, shows somewhat improved musical skills, although not really, and is more bestial, more war metal like than the first. The sound is somewhat crisper, but its still mysterious sounding, though.

This is their first one, Advent Of The Black Omen. It is sloppier than their second, and the sound is super mysterious, cool ritualistic intros, non-stop mid-tempo blasts, every riff is blasting, its kinda funny, actually, but I really am fond of this record. It is played terribly, and is terribly primitive, but in a good sense. Its refreshing, and fucking down right evil, hateful, malignant and belligerent in a number of ways. The sound is just so fucking good.
Next up is Holland's answer to the Svarte Sirkel crap, this is Bestial Summoning, and if you dont know them, and you like classic black metal, you are missing out big time. Contemporary to all of those church burning alcoholics in the North, these boys had the same idea, mimcked it off of the black metal scene, but did it better than 99% of them viking folk. This shit fucking rules, the vocals are absolutely tortured. In fact, when a friend of mine lent this to me, the first I heard was 'The Dark War Has Begun', I swore the vocals had effects on them. So he sent me their 'Live In Vernay' stuff as well, and I must say I was wrong. I included both of them in the same zip, so you should not have trouble ith that. A good way to judge a band is to look at their logo......
Holy shit, a demonic goat, a half moon, and 666, all in the same logo???? Also an inverted pentagram? Shit all they are lacking is an up turned crucifix, and we would be in business. Also, take a look at this frontman. When was the last time YOU had sais as part fo your stage performance, huh, asshole?
That is classic black metal stuff, skinny, geeky white kid with face paint and sais. This is what its fucking about, not this avantgarde black noise stuff. Although I actually do like that stuff too. Its just taking yourself seriosuly, I never liked that about black metal. Anyway, aweosme music for you, RIGHT HERE, BUDDY.

This next one is actually sick, it is very difficult to listen to, and disturbing on a level that very few things in general tend to be. This is one of those albums where, after listening to it, I felt ridiculously depressed and totally disassociated from everything. It had a very profound effect on me, it made me feel useless, miserable, a waste of time, and that nothing matters, and everything sucks. I believe that is the purpose of black metal, and this stuff achieves it, even if it is not quiet straight up black metal. It has elements of doom/sludge, black metal, grindcore, death metal, dark ambient, power electronics/noise, and is the sort of music you could not play outside of a studio, ever. This was also posted on Cephalochromoscope, but this is my rip of the CD, which was generously lent ot me by Alex of Krupskaya, who likes this kind of crap.

This last one I am sure is suppossed to be taken very seriously and is supposed to be very insightful and revelatory, I think it is just the funniest shit ever. Called black drone by followers of this pathetic genre, it is just noise, of the intellectual variety, not harsh, just bowed chellos and double basses, and low frequencies with a guy mumbling half intelligible stuff over it. Wolfmangler are quiet fun to listen to, and they have this werid wolf concept going on with their band. Its fairly awesome. Absolutely no drums at all on this one, nipping the possibility of blast beats in the bud. LAUGH YOUR ASS OFF.

unholy punk

some people could say black metal is dying and getting evolved into something hybrid. or you can already say black metal is dead. i dont want to rant about the whole fuckin history of black metal, if you dont know it, shame on you, dont tell anyone, use wikifuckinpedia.
since ildjarn's punky black metal albums were revisited by some, it became popular to play and listen to really raw and noise black metal for some reason, which im happy for, because i cant stand slow and flowing black metal that much long (okay, flowing black metal with barely fast tempos are ok).
i didnt like usbm before i met the term 'youth attack black metal'. since mark mccoy loves noisy black metal, he started to release some really nice records and tapes from bands you dont know shit about.altho i hate the silly term 'YABM', i use it, cause its nice to label things, aint it?
so back to this amazing band full of beautiful men. theyre from california, and had bands like NAZI DUST and DIVISIONS, which i both love. this is pretty much all i know about this band, beside that theyre awesome. their stuff is all around the internet, you can find their demos on every notable black metal/black noise/ya hardcore blog, so its not a big deal that ive posted them i think, altho i felt the need to do so. my instincts told me, you know. so, feed upon my actual favourite new black metal punk band's three demos.

demo I :: demo II :: demo III

also, heres a nice little compilation simply called PRIMITIVE NORTH AMERICA. it is actually a podcast, which features bands from these times from north america (how ironic), only really noise and raw punky black metal shit. the cover is one of the best artworks ive ever seen, im fully all over these kinda stuff, hahaha... features bands like BONE AWL, ARTS, HAXAN, DEATH'S GRINNING HEAD, etc. just perfect.

complete setlist:

1. Bone Awl – By Ropes Through Dirt (CA)

2. Ancestors – I (NY)

3. Grinning Death’s Head – Subhumans (GA)

So this is what I left out of the previous post.
This is the EP before the album of Dead Congregation. It is not as good as the album, which is amazing, it is however still quiet obvious that this is a superior band, and this EP is a stand alone amazing piece of work. BUt its just not as good as the album. This is what I first heard fo them, and when the album came out it blew this thing out of the water. However, it is much more lo-fi, which for this music is not necessarily a good thing. The only time you will ever hear me say this, I swear.
This next one si the legendary, very hard to get Social Coma self title. I dunno if this band made anythgin outside of this one EP, but I have not heard fo it. Which is a shame, dissonant, negative, fast as fuck hardcore, with some tortured, fucked up, explosive vocals, from ex-member(s) of Charles Bronson. This band does it for me waaaaay more than Mr. Bronson, and that is saying quiet a bit, for they absolutely ruled. But these guys bring on the weirdness and dementia and wicked evil stuff, anti-social, negi shit, so I obviously prefer them. I could not get a hold of the physical copy, so I grabbed mine off of a blog, possibly the am i mean blog, he seems to have everything fast and hardcore related. Once I do see this for a reasonable price, I will jump on the occassion.

So I have a wide range of albums for you on this post. I have every genre with blast beats included, there is some death metal and death/grind, of course ye olde style grindcore, with that gory influence, some crust, a power violence record, and even some old school noise/HC, better known as noisecore. Pretty much only gore grind, to whom too much of the past posts have been dedicated and black metal, who I will deal with in due time are left off of the roster. However, before I present them, you have to listen to me ramble on about some issues that pis sme off. Its like that drunk guy on the bus who gave you a cigarette, and now is talking to you about his bullshit ideas all the way home. Lets begin.

The idea used today by nations to justify themselves and to create a national mythos is one that was constructed by a select few people on the turn of the century. It was heavily influenced by what had happened in the Americas, and was constructed to justify the First and Second World Wars. This new idea of nationhood and of national purity was made so that, specifically Eatsern, Southern and Central Europe, which have always, and I mean ALWAYS been multi-ethnic and multi-cultural king or fiefdoms, would have to be smashed, re-regulated and bent over backwards to the status quo residing in the west, in France, England and the Netherlands specifically. This was done extremely well, and after this idea of nationhood, destructive from its very begginings, and a piece of crap ideologically speaking, has served its uses to its creators, Western European leaders, it is still lives on today, and people have internalized it as God given truth. The stupidity of people is indeed baffling. And all of you who are on the left ro right of any issue, are just buying in to the same idiotic, preconceived deception, that was made depending on where people sat in the British House of Commons.
We need to abandon this idea of borders containing an ethnicity. It has never worked in this part of the world. The Scythian empire, pictured above, is a mobile empire based not on genetics or borders, or "country" of origin, but based on language, shared cultural values, and whether or not you were accepted into the tribe. That is what nationality is. The modern problems of Americans resulting from "race" are just as bogus as the territorial disputes in the Balkans, the war between Greece and Turkey, the civil war in Macedonia, or indeed any conflict in those areas int he 20th century, barring a few exceptions. These places have enough food to feed more than just their own populations, enough land that there need not be wars of conquest, and enough history of people getting along, that to dwell on these recent atrocities and blame each other for them is beyond idiotic. I think we should all occupy all the land, and understand ourselves in terms of mobile empires. It is not a solution for world peace, but it is one that makes sense.

Now for the grrrrrrrrrrind. Ima get the death metalish stuff out of the way first, cuz that is what I believe the least of our readers like.
This band, Orchidectomy. What can I say? This stuff is totally inhuman, it sounds like its being played by aliens, or monsters or some shit. The riffs are very hard to sink your teeth into, technical, but strangely timed, not wankerish, just weird and spastic, insanely fast at times, really chugga-chug at other times. I put their album "A Prelates Attrition" and their promo stuff in one folder. By the way this band is probbaly the most guttural shit out there today, along with Copremesis, Wormed and Pustulated. Super fuckin inhuman vocals.
Next up is the godly Malignancy. Weirdest band out there, besides Portal. Despite the tough, death metallish gimmick and the fact that they are giant metal dudes, this is a nerd band. The songs are about gross stuff, medical anomalies, psychological tension and maladjustment in general. Some of the songs are about killing people. Its a death metal band, after all. One of the innovators of death/grind, a genre I am not that keen on. But this stuff, and a few others make it worth my while.

Next up is Necrovore's demo from the legendary 80s Texas scene. It is their only demo. It sounds so harsh, that many of you Disclose and Death Dust Extractor fans will shed a tear of joy, and the old school death metal genre will be salvaged, even for your type. It sounds like nothing else, I totally love this demo, although it is 4 tracks, and really friggin hard to get through.


This next one is also really fucking psycho. Masturbation (gotta love that name) is from Colombia and they play, like, i dunno, industrial death metal? Also frighteningly guttural, and the music is almost noise core, all you can hear is the hyper blast, it all sounds so tinny and distorted and fucked up, its a real mind fuck of an album, some mediocre riffs from time to time, but mostly just blasting and you cannot hear the guitar at all. Perfect for the nightly prayers of the blast beat worshipper. Smoke a fatty and you will pass out to this.


This next one cannot be fucked with. Dead Congregation rule, and this is their full length. Old school, cryptic death metal, with new school death metal drumming (courtesy of the Inveracity drummer), but almost like a death/doom album with blast beats. These guys probably dont smoke weed, they just dont sound like the type at all. Its apocalyptic, heavy, doomish, but gets frighteningly fast at times, it is pure fucking evil. Just a great album, set new standards for death metal, I am extremely pleased that I bought this for only 10 bucks form NWN! productions, although I got mine on CD. I am sure this sounds absolutely killer on vinyl, I will have to pick up a second hand copy of it from somewhere.

That is all the metal I have got. The next stuff is Dahmer, from Canada, gore influenced old school grind with some d-beats, tons of mid-tempo blast beats, awesome riffage, just a great band in any respect, awesome pig squeal guturals, dual vocal action with awesome shouts as the second voice. Really catchy riffs, although all the songs are very similar. They are good, though, I like em tons, and I want to present some of their more obscure stuff, since everybody knows like 2-3 albums or splits from this band, and they were much more prolific than that. They also had a bunch of lo-fi recordings, and these are the ones I wanna talk about.
First up, their 3 way split tape with Diarhée Mentále, also from Canada, and Carcass Grinder, for whom my love has already been professed. If not, they are one of the greatest grindcore bands out there. Pretty much it. DM sounds similar to Dahmer, but sillier and crustier, in some ways. They have cookie monster vocals all the livelong day. I think they might have shared some members. Anyway, tape is fairly lo-fi, Dahmer side still sounds good, though.
Next one is their demo, Dahmerized, which is like 3 demos in reality, one of them sounds good, one of them sounds aight, and one of them sounds super crappy. This is classic Dahmer stuff. Not much more to say, great tape from a great band.
Just recently a post was made on Cephalochromoscope about Parade Of The Lifeless, being their full length. Its good, but not as weird and noisy as their split with Dahmer. I guess Dahmer just brings the best out of everyone. POTL is like a noise band, kinda artsy, kinda grindy, sorta metalled out, really really weird stuff. And Dahmer, they play real pro-like on this one, one of their faster recordings, too.
The other piece of good old school grind is from a band that has been on this blog before, they are Jack from Hungary, and espite their name, they absolutley rule. This is one of their older albums, when they were way more crust influenced, its along the lines of the Step On It split, good stuff. The vocals arent growly yet, they sound kinda snoty and irritating, its excellent stuff, Levi is a great singer, and a hillarious front man. This one is called "Téged Akarnak" which means "They Want You". Its about the media and the military industrial complex. Excellent Hungarian grind.

This next one is Masskontrol's flexi called "Recycle Or Die". It is funny, and pretty much the only Masskontrol recording with a fair amount of blast beats. Nothing over the top, mind you, they are a crust band. This is definitely their fastest recording. I do not have a physical copy of this one, it is very hard to get, as flexis tend to be. I do have their LP, and I will be posting that sometime, but not quiet yet.
This is MK-Ultra. They are from Illinois, have Charles Bronson's drummer, and just released their discography on a beautiful double LP on Youth Attack! records. The moment they run out of copies I will be posting that as well, unless they tell me not to. I wanna get people to listen to this without paying a million bucks on e-bay for some vinyl. You can get that disco LP right here, by the way. The music is disonant pv/hardcore, with a bit of old, a bit of new, lots of really, really weird things going on. Song structures are very strange for me, unlike other bands. This is their best material in my humble opinion. Do not own a physical copy, but do have it on the discography LP, which is beautiful.
The last one is the noisecore stuff, really old, really fast, really sloppy, really awesome. Olho Seco and Brigada De Odio are both Brazilian old school noise hardcore bands. Brigada De Odio is basically a grindcore band, but way sloppier and really over the top with the noise schenanigans. Olho Seco are more of a crust/hc band. But also noisy. And fast. Brigada De Odio supply the blastbeats.

So Ima leave you to enjoy that. My next post will be shorter, and as I forgot some stuff here, its gonna be like an update post. Keep in touch.

the title sums it up really good. it means 'bloodshittycock' in hungarian, reflects the attitude of DIN-ADDICT, one of my alltime favourite bands. never heard of them? shame on you. theyre like one of the first grindcore bands from hungary who toured europe, played at obscene extreme fest (i guess in 2000 or so...), had a shitloada releases, and maybe even more line-up changes. i try to collect every single shit they had ever puked out from their digestive systems of grind, drugged out gory shit and most of all, pure noise. i try to talk about this band without too much childish fanatism, but it might be a problem for me, i adore this band too much. it has everything that i (and probably you too) need. shitty quality (on their later releases they went to studio, but sounds still very noisy and chaotic), sloppy blasts and d-beats, veryveryvery low tuned guitars -, sounds like a fuckin tornado of chainsaws! -,grows, screams, sometimes pitchshifted vocals (which i usually dont like, but this time i have to make an exception). i couldnt see the band live, i missed their later shows, altho i wanted to go, i still feel sorry i didnt make it. their best shit was sadly unreleased, a demo recording from 2005, ill try to beg for it at one of the singers who i happen to be friends with.
they split up due to personal problems. the drummer plays now in german crust-grind band PER CAPITA, the guitarist runs a studio called NOISE LAB, one of the singer plays in many bands (more experimental, druggy, industrial-oriented shit, called RONCSIPAR, FUTURE REALM), and i dont know shit about the other singer. after they broke up, they formed again under the name of LONG PIG, which they titled 'turbo sludgecore', with a different drummer from hungarian gore band MY FIRST KNIFE. that band was more into monolithic and i dont know how to say but 'cyber' grind. altho it wasnt cybergrind even a bit. so, some releases from these fine men:

the first shit is the OBLITERATE / DIN-ADDICT split, which rules. obliterate are a slovakina grind band as i know, but i might be wrong. the play a bit metalic grind stuff, too 'good' for my ears, i dont really like their stuff, but its nice to listen to it sometimes. the other side is awesome, loud, agressive, drugged out, pure din-addict. the last song is the best song on the album, period. describes themselves perfectly. grind going to some psychedelic stonerish stuff with gory vocals and some really serious atmosphere.

next up is the split with GRINDUSTRY from netherlands. too death metal for me. too techy. too many vocal skills, sorry, kill me for this, i dont like them that much. but as always, din-addict rules here.

the last shit is the full length of din-addict, titled MUSIC FOR OPEN MINDS, you can see an awesome picture of the cover up there, it looks like that. this album is typical din-addict. dual vocals, low, grunty guitars, sloppy drums, noisy as hell. end of story.

the last two stuff are a special combo from all the tracks of a side-project of the 'mid din-addict' members, called SZARGYEREK, which simply means shitkid, refering to all you fuckin annoying cock rock kids. drum machine grind, which i usually hate, but again, i have to make an exception. songs are about hatred towards teenagers in hungary. my message to all you dickheads: die. this is what szargyerek said to you too. both demos were released together on a double 7" by Undislessed Records, Skud Records, Toxic Productions in a split with Anubis, Critical Mass and Malignant Tumour.
Miért van ennyi megvezetett álrokkker Tankcsapdás köcsög?

thank you. marci. <3

Death Of A Blog, Hatred Of Drum Machines, Love Of Your Mom

So the first thing I want to talk about is that Blunts and Blastbeats, the second best blog on the entire internet, is officially dead, has been removed from cyberspace, and there is only a hole in the matrix and a no longer exists warning by blogger where this excellent blog once stood. The guy who made it, I have never met him, he lives in the states, but I feel like, listening to his bands, and seeing his posts, like we were on the same wavelength.

All he would talk about is smoking weed and playing fast, which is essentially my life. He will be sorely missed on the internets, and if you are reading this, if you want me to take this stuff off of my blog, just let me know, man, and I shall, although you ahd it up on yours for free, I am just holding it down for you, now that Blunts and Blasts are offline. This is his straight up grind band called Epileptic Fit, he has some others, but this one is the best. The first pic is an older demo, the second one is the newer stuff, I prefer tht one, it is even more obnoxious. Includes a cover of Lucid Fairytle, which is like off of the best record on earth. This guy knows whats up.

This next one is a drum machine band. Yous hould know by now, I am a drummer and I despise the use of drum machines in grind. I have a few exceptions, but for the most part, unacceptable. This fine piece of work was made with a drummer machine by a drummer, and you can really hear the difference. The drum parts make sense, they are not the kind of shitty programming you generally see when guitarists use drum machines. This guy is a very capable drummer, he just chose to use a shitty drum machine, why? I have no idea. Otherwise the licks are good, midtempo punk as fuck goregrind. This is from Turkey, and its a two man operation.

This is the split between two of Hungary's finest grind bands. Its from 2005. Step On It are kind of a fastcore band, althought hey call themselves the all school monster. Which is accurate, all styles of hardcore are represented by them, but on this CD, its mostly fastcore stuff with that grind influence. Fuckin sweet. Jack are like the most straight up grind band in history. By the books, sloppy drumming, fast as fuck everything, the vocals are still not s good as Levi can make them now.. He has gotten really fucking sick. The guitars, sound wise and riff wise, I mean, straight up grindcore, the way it was meant to be played.

The last one I forgot to upload apicture of. I figured, the type of grind I have the least on here is death/grind, and one of my favorite bands, Pustulated released a split with this band form New York that we know, caleld Copremesis. Now, Copremesis is some other shit entirely, weird ass riffing, weird ass guys, plus they were straight edge, and played this crazy music, dressed up like sponge bob on stage, made self-deprecating comments about penis length, stamina and virility, and also shouted "standing is cool!" at death metal gigs. I remember seeing them open for Malignancy, Mortician, Wasteform and someone else at a Halloween show in Queens. Perhaps Internal Bleeding, they played every gig back then. So some time after that I picked up their demo, which ruled, and later I heard that they released the split with Pustulated, who are pure awesome distilled into band form. The drummer for Oustulated, Cpt. Killdrums is the best death grind drummer out there, plus the old drummer of Wormed. Hands down, no question. Other folks got his speed, but not many. Used to play for Brodequin, another staple of mine. Yeah, that fast, plus he got style, while these other folks, not so much. NO mechanincs here, nicely layed, jazzed out drumming that is constant blasts. I could go on. Im gonna make a post just about his bands one of these days.
But Copremesis. weird guys, weird grind, good stuff.
Here is the split.
And here is that weird ass demo of Copremesis with the unbelieveable vocals. It is anime influenced and called "Demonstrating The Fist". Really weird, goofy, nerdy stuff, you have been warned! They also have a full length dedicated entirely to transvestites out, called Muay Thai Ladyboys, but I will not put that up, seeing as how they probably want you to buy it. They put quiet some cash into it. Once I get permission from them personally, then I shall put it on up.
Therapeutic battery!

So this is a French grindcore band, Blockheads, they have remained relatively unknown, even though Osmose records carries their shit, and they are signed to Bones Brigade. They have like a million CDs, but I only have these two, courtesy of my singer Gabika. Both of these CDs have 20 songs on them of very well recorded, but very strange sounding grindcore, with weird song structures, just really hard to get into, but worth it once you do. The songs are kinda long for this genre, 20 songs are 37 minutes long on Human Parade, but by Shapes Of Misery, the same amount is but 26 short minutes. Still kinda long, but better.

They are technically proficient, and have quiet a bit of metal influence, but they are a grind band. They have a split with Mumakil. I am not too big on this type of grind, but these guys take the fucking cake. I mean, holy shit, the speed is amazing, and the blast beats are literally non-stop.

The first one, Human Parade, its not as good as the second one, its slower, more melodies and less blasting, although the blasting is pretty much constant on that one as well, but the second one, Shapes Of Misery, man, non-stop blast. Seriously.
Lyrics are about human rights abuses, left wing political stuff, anarchism, apathy, protest, concentration camps, and fear of where the world is headed. I am always a taker for those kinds of lyrics, they are like a positive version of Ulcerrhoea's lyrics. Not bad, eh?

This is Human Parade.

This is Shapes Of Misery.

Also, I am gonna include some old shit I got off of some trades I made with a German guy back in 2001-2003. Since one of the two cmments on this blog invovled some displeasure about my goregrind post, I am gonna do the right thing and offer up a common point that all of us can agree on. That is Gore from Brazil, who are a dirty, filthy, distorted fucking mess of a gore band. I love the way this record sounds, and the fact that there are no polka riffs on it. Just blasts and garbled noise and nonsense. Also, long irritating intros. Almost a noisecore band in my opinion.
This is Consumed By Slow Decay.

So im just gonna post pictures of delicious buds. Smoking weed and listening to grindcore to me just go hand in hand, so I guess I am on topic. im a drummer though, so I never play high, I wait till after the gig or rehearsal. It has become so much a part of my life that I do not want to imagine life without it. Next post is gonna be full of grind, though, for all of you non-smokers, just skip this one.

Hype strain, apparently its just OG Skunk. They now call it cheese. Inaccurately named, doesnt taste, look or smell like cheese. Excellent weed, skunks are my favorite.
They usually use this weed to make hash, which is a total waste, cuz this shit is amazing. Afghan Kush.

Chronic. This shit is a big deal apparently, very mystified strain. Has a nice high to it, tastes like medicine.

Grew some of this shit, had a buck twenty on it. Northern Lights, a basic strain, really reliable, you can get used to it though. A friend of mine had it cosistently, it was much stronger than the shit I grew.

Chemo Grizzly. Used to get dime bags of this siht and smoke it in a boiler room, until we saw stars and felt like we were gonna pass out. Light green in color, strong distinctive taste and smell.

Almost grew this weed once. Kinda sad that I did not. Kush strain, lots of fun. Orange Kush.

The most average strain of all. If I had to pick one strain that has everything in it, it would have to be this one. Big Bud, from Canada.

Medical shit. This one is sour diesel, its good shit, clean high, lots of active cannabinols.

Original diesel. Tiny, autoflowering plants, really neat.

Great white. I knew a guy who had eighths of this shit, it was retardedly expensive, but it would fuck you up. Tastes piney.

This bud actually tastes sweet. Its called juicy fruit, and it is really good, nice light high, bred more for the smoking experience. My buddies would eat little flakes of this when we picked up, it annoyed the shit out of me.

Hindu kush. Kush strains are very kind, lots of fun, you can smoke em all day long.

Super silver haze. A big deal in the states, haze has a high unlike any other bud I have ever smoked. Its totally unique, very tangible, very, well, hazy. My friends favorite strain. Fells good, man.

A friend of mine grew this shit. Marci can attest, this weed is like a psychedelic. White Widow.

The best weed around. Super Skunk, I love you. This weed will make you sleep its so heavy. Very unkind.

Folks used to swear this was the best weed around. Its Jack Herrer, which is awesome weed, but I am more of a skunk guy. It is really physical, like you are doing drugs.

Kali mist. One of the best experiences of my life was smoking this shit on a rooftop in New York, I was very young, getting into grindcore, smoking a shit load of weed. I was in the beggining of a legacy that spawned bands, records, friends, court cases, and this blog.

This weed is too strong. This is called Durban Poison, it tastes really really strong, and it is like posion, makes you cough your ass off.

This skunk is so skunky it tastes like lemons. Its called citrus skunk, and its some good stuff.

Don know much about this weed, have never smoked it, but it looks pretty. Its called brainstorm, probably really heady like.

This bud smells almostlike garlic. It is too strong. Real fun to grow.

This is one of those holy grail weeds, called cinderella 99, its good stuff but way overrated. Looks like cotton candy, though.

This bud is called champagne, and its aweird one. Really nice high, makes you feel al good inside, makes the world seem jnreal. Great for social occasions, you could smoke this shit and then talk to your family, and they wont know a thing.

Blueberry. Really fruity weed.
