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.
ALIENS MONSTERS ON A CRACK INDUCED KILLING SPREE.
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.
CRUSHING YOUR HEAD, THEY'RE CRUSHING YOUR HEAD.
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.
TAPE IS THE FORMAT FOR GRIND.
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.
NOISE GRIND THAT IS NOT NOISE-GRIND.
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.
SNOTTY OLD 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.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY FLEXI?
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.
OLD BRAZILIAN NOISE.
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.
