Marci finally posted, shit is picking up, I am very happy about the shit that goes on on this blog. I am so stuck on space, though, I had to have another post of shit that I left out, and some new shit as well, well, new for me. I got some updates as well, so let's start with that.

Cellgraft/Drainland split
Cellgraft, again raise the bar with todays grindcore. This time its a split, but the other side fo it is not out yet, or wasn't at the time that I downloaded this. That might ahve changed, the cover is also awesome, if you want it, go to their blog, you can get all of their shit for free.

As you can guess, mean sounding frantic, odd timed grindcore, this time sounding crispy clean, and the guitars seem to still bring the filth, its like laminated dirt. Shit is fucking awesome, starts out with a doomish track, goes on for 2 and a half (!!) minutes, which by Cellgraft standards is their first demo tape, and then some. Blastbeats galore.

Praia De Vomito

They have been on here before, they had a split with Melanocetus Murrayi and Noituus, if you remember that one. They play noisegrind, or raw grind, I guess, the trax are sort of written, but kept loose, which you guys probably already know that I love, with an exteremely depressive political message, its ghetto grind, I guess, their shit on that split was so good I had to look into what they were up to. Of course, they split up. On their blog, youu can find all of their shit up for grabs. Awesome artwork as well, which is all included. Their split with Melanocetus Murrayi is included as the 1. 984 EP.

Now back to the void......

Great spacy noise shit. Two masters of the genre kicking each others ass. Haven't listened to it in a while, but now that I've busted it out again, I have to say, the Bastard Noise side wins by just an inch.

This is a solar, spaced out drone album, one of those goes-nice-with-a-spliff types. The cover is amazing, I might get it tatooed, not cuz of the music, but because it looks so awesome. This is pretty much the soundtrack to holding your breath because you something just so beautiful. Its fun, downers need to be taken to listen to the whole thing though, like I cannot just chill for this long. Lethargic to say the least.

Awesome spacy death/grind from Malta. They started out with the pretensious long winded, but still pointless typical gorey death/grind shit lyrics. I guess after smoking enough weed and playing enough shows, they wrote a concept album about some virulent plant like things taking over the earth and killing humanity. The best track on here is the second and the sixth, in my opinion, but all the songs have tons of blast beats, insane, unmemorizable amounts of riffage, nice gruff vocals, and a super clean production, which to me takes away a little bit from the over all thing, but it sounds nice. The studio guy/sound engineer mus ahve worked his ass off, and I appreciate that, even though I think it was for naught. Also, this has the coolest cover ever, ti was my desktop wallpaper for like 3 years.

This is supposed to be woodsy and medieval sounding, but to me it screams space noise. Somewhere on the sidelines between ambient and noise, it has an annoying, harsh sort of droning, while remaining just barely below the level thats harsh enough to be noise. Really weird, sort of like the Vodka Soap stuff posted earlier.

So d.h.i.b.a.c are supposed to be grindcore from outer space, which is why I posted this, but to me, they just plain suck. Sorry, gotta keep it real. The only reason I am posting this is because the Saywhy guys have helped us out a million times, their side rules, and I have been waiting to post something of theirs finally, these guys play like fastcore/grind/pv. Totally unique, totally insane, really fucking fast paced, live shows are off the chain as well. Really artsy guys, but you couldn't tell from this band, except that it's executed flawlessly.

Really weird, japanese noisy shit, I dunno what to call this, really bizarre shit, kinda noise rock-ish, I guess, but spacy and alien that much is for sure. I don't know what to make of it, tis still new for me, so many things happening, so many people screaming, and so much just weird shit, it blew my little mind. Some blastbeats would have made this record 100% better, though. Lot's of changes in dynamic sound quality and volume, which a lot of noise is lacking nowadays, which I think it's really cool though.


Been meaning to post this. Alien death/grind, the people playing it, I have a hard time believeing that they are humans. Their odl drummer, who sadly quit, but is on these recordings, is the grand master of freaky death/grind, with ghost notes, cool fills and rolls, awesome, super fast blast beats, etc...The vocals are inhuman. Not made by people. At all. Nothing in it is human at all. Awesome song structures, hardly anything is played twice, but if something comes back, it is meant to. On top of all of that its catchy and memorable in an absolute way. The Planeispharum album is better than the EP, but both fucking rule. They have a new album out, or it's in production, I know they recorded it already. Another major obsession of mine.

For the first time since I started this blog, you will get to know that I fucking love speed/power metal, but only the old filthy kind. None of this Dragonforce fucking bullshit, only old, fucked up, nasty, childish fantasies of like knights, and mad max and shit like that. This band is like that, except they sing about aliens and conspiracy theories, which is awesome, with a voice so high pitched it can raise the dead and bring them out to mosh, or headbang, as the case may be. Drums are fucking fast for the genre, the double bass parts would be fairly hard to play, if it got down to it. The guitar work, of course, is the stand out, millions of solos and all that shit. This is the only album I like by them, if you are interested in anything else by them, you will have an easy time finding them, super prolific band.

Big thanks to Ben Bontempo of DAD and a million noise projects for hooking me up with this CD, it was a parting gift, and I have held it in ultra high esteem since then. It is creepy, I swore I wouldn't post it, because it's fucking creepy. Power electronics shit mixed with some guy singing in his bathtub, drunk, alone and possibly contemplating suicide. The CD is said to be the "dark side of karaoke", and there are moments when I hear it and I think, truly, this is the armpit of humanity, the underbelly of all of those nights you went out and had a good time. All those things you wanted to forget are on this CD, in noise format. It's similar to the UFO Or Die shit, in the sense that there are many different types of volume, and texture or whatever on here, it changes, like listening to many recordings, all of them super fucked up. Old rip, so it's in AAC format. Convert it. It's worth it.

Next post we are gonna get right back into the thick of it,w ith only grindcore for a good while, too much weird shit, but I just had to do it. Until then, take care of yourselves, it's a crazy world out there.

2011. szeptember 27., kedd


so, i decided to write a post already. i had been abused by mark to write something here, for my lack of motivation and my great assholeness. today im staying home, i have some illness, i dont know what, so fuck it. i have nothing to say of course, just some reviews, unlike mark, who is a fuckin genious in writing about his own thoughts (seggnyalás, geci!). before i post some shitty links about noise and music, i would like to apologize for not sharing a single letter with anyone who would be interested in my opinion (is there even such a person?). i have been through some highs and lows, thinking about why i should or should not continue posting. i decided to continue as you can see, and therefore i bring you some of my recent gems i found over the internet (i cant rip tapes for some while, but ill try to fix this problem.). soon we'll be able to rip vinyl too, and that means we'll have so much unheard shit here from our personal collection with mark, you couldn't even digest it.

GENESIS CLIMBER - live at minmei's 2112
i just got this rip recently from the always awesome TERMINAL ESCAPE blog. thank you terminal escape, you changed my life with this tape. GENESIS CLIMBER is a band from oakland, they play somekind of hard prog, like early man is the bastard, but with a heavy spacey atmosphere, dual bass guitars, no fucking electric guitars, which is my personal favorite in band set-ups. this tape has two tracks titled 'ruler of the mountain' and 'kosmos of the mind'. both were recorded in a rehearsal space or basement as it souds, although the title states it was recorded live in 2112 at minmei's.. cant hate this record. also, no blastbeats included. sorry.

my personal favorite record of all time. i cant stop listening to it since i found this fastcore/pop masterpiece for years now. think of romantic gorilla or threatner on coke, and on the mic is the cutest japanese girl screaming and singing tunes like the theme song of teen titans... it was a side project of a french music collective, so to say. members from monarch!, george bitch jr., gasmask terrör, tetsuo, year of no light, and a shit ton of other awesome french bands (also: mark told me french bands suck, ill make a post about that one soon...).

DEBT TRAP - songs
DEBT TRAP has the best band name in hungary, thats fo sho'. despite the shitty cover, the inside is pure awesome. its like iron lung but more noisy and raw, sloppy drumming, harsh noisy guitar sound, and the typical pv style grunty vocals and awesome lyrics. cant say more, download it, its recommended.

DEBT TRAP / PFA / VENTOLIN AND THE BASTARDS - 3 way mega lo-fi love split

this is some funny shit. DEBT TRAP is still the same since their previous shit above, maybe even more noisy and fucked up. which i like. PFA is at its finest on this recording in my opinion, really fucked up, shitty quality and fast songs, with exclusive spaced out synths this time. VATB is just a drugged out jam, recorded at my friend's summer house sometime this summer.

(got bored with inserting covers, sorry)

raw and noisy as shit grindcore. this one is from Ugur, thanks for this one bro. sounds a lot like noisecore/noisegrind, but its just in really bad quality (hurray!). blastbeat heaven!

one time i was talking to mark, and i showed him maybe ira einhorn or call me betty, i dont know which, and pointed out the ultra high pitched girly screams in it, which i adore so much. he told me theres a band doing nothing else then those ultra highs... gotta love it...

this is a record which has 20 ultra fast songs with individually their own structures, not noisegrind, each song was written fully. oh, and the last one song lasts for more than one and a half minutes, so it makes the other 19 songs less than 5 seconds.

2011. szeptember 24., szombat


First gig with Chappa'ai has happened with Wormrot from Singapoure, as well as Maruta from Florida, in fuckin Budapest of course. Also, Youth Violence played, who I have extensively reviewed here, and also, I ahve their demos up here. They are recording new stuff, and are going to be putting some new shit out soon. When it happens, it shall be here first.

So I am extatic, and I am going to be posting some shit that is from outerspace, the place our shit is from. Some noise, some grind, some more ambient type shit. Also, I am going to be posting some death metal as well. Let's get to it, this time, in alphabetical order.

Arizmenda- Within The Vacuum Of Infinity
Spacy, depressing black metal. Th evocals are the highlight of this, plus the incredible atmosphere, this shit sounds raw and nasty, but at the same time spacy, full of reverb, and all that shit. The songs go on for way too long, however. You really don't need to play this shit for 8 minutes, bro. The blastbeats are pretty much constant, although not too fast, but ain't that always the case?

Black Dice
Some more noisecore, because I have not posted that shit in a while. Not just pure noise, except for Semen Of The Sun, there are sort of riffs and shit, super negative music this is, feels creepy, and Semen Of The Sun is the only one that is really spacy and noisy, but its not my favorite, but I've been dying to fuckin post this band for a while. I htink their self title takes the cake, but the rest is fun as well.
Black Dice- Self Title
Black Dice- Lambs Like Fruit
Black Dice- Semen Of The Sun
Black Dice- Verminscum

CSMD/Intumescence/Deche-Charge Split Double 8"
I do not own this, just to let you know, I am not sure even where I got it from. Drop me a line i it's yours. Total noisegrind, CSMD are the best on here, they are a really fucking good grind band, wiht funny shit happening all the time. Deche-Charge are mega primitive on here, and I wanna say a few words about Intumescence. This shit of theirs is not so impressive, although tis solid noisegrind, but sometimes this band absolutely nails it, like their split with Malignant Tumour, which I shall have to rip and post cuz its rare, although tis probably up on the net somewhere. So yeah, that band rules, although this is not so powerful, mostly worth it for the CSMD space shit, and the Deche-Charge being absolute idiots in the recording space bit.

Damage Digital/Kursk
Damage Digital I have posted before, they are absolutely killer, they took their notes from Discordance Axis int emrs of how to write riffs, and then added a bunch of fun and light spiritedness, for most fo the songs, and then every once in a hwile hit you with something a bit darker, a bit heavier, or just some noise. Both bands spacier than usual o here. The Kursk side I am not too familiar with, listened to it a couple of times, liked it enough, but nothing special. Not a single thing comes to mind from that side that is of any interest to me.

Deche-Charge/Space Grinder
Space grinder rule, here they play noisegrind, sometimes they just do harsh nosie sit, I can link them definitely to Niku Do Rei, and bands like that whom I have posted on here before, but, with more space shit going on. Deche-Charge remain barbaric animals who smash up their instruments and pretty much everything else. Funny, super primitive noisegrind form them, like Anal Cunt and these bands, if you are into that. The more interetsing side for me is clearly the Space infleunced side. Cuz I'm nerdy like that. I have posted them before, as they were on the Total Scum Noise Shit Attack compilation, with a long noise PE track. Aside form this I cannot find anything from them. If you can, hook shit up.

Mundo De Mierda demo 2
35 0000 00000000 songs in just 11 minutes, total noisegrind, lots of reverb, lost of feedback, really snotty voice. Thats this demo tape. Its fun to listen to, if you have the time, and if you like grind. Also, if you dont mind improvisation and people yelling a lot.

Reach Out- Sic Transit Gloria Mundi
Reach Out were from Szolnok, if I am not mistaken, and were an average hardcore band form the 90s in the Hungarian sense, and then, they recorded this, fucking briliant piece of fastcore, but the best that the genre has to offer, in my opinion, with great lyrics (for the most part in Hungarian), awesome guitar work, fats as fuck drumming, catchy riffs, short songs, tons of shit going on, real busy like. And they never released it. I got this from Dr. Slayer, so all the thanks and respect in the world go to his faggot ass for hooking it up, cuz its just not available. Until now. I am sure members of this band now hate me for posting this, but this is too good to go unheard. Also, nothing to do with space.

One of the best death metal bands, their demo stuff is like total dungeon brutal shit, and their albums are nice crispy clean death metal, typical of the West Coast, where they are from. The best of American death metal is played to this day by Latinos for the most part, and almost always immigrants. This band is no exception, used to trad e-mails, they sent me one of their 1993 dmeo tapes, and I will ript hat for y'all, cuz it sounds awesome. Until then, here are some of the nicely recorded things, I htink you will find that this band is filthier and much more fucked up then your average death metal band.
Sepsism- Severe Carnal Butchery
Sepsism- Purulent Decomposition
Sepsism- To Prevail In Disgust

Harsh noise again, although Naplamed I think is unique in the genre. Saw them at Obscene Extreme this year, they fuckin ruled, it was absolutely great, you could almost dance to it. Here its more spacy, which is why I chose this one. SKLO also do their thing really hard, the whole record will fuck you up. Like ants crawling around in your brain, they like the high frequencies a lot.

So, as you could have guessed by now, I am including the CSMD stuff for the space likeness that they have. SMG are a band I have ranted about before on this blog, they are noisegrind, but leaning towards the old Raw Grind shit, some structutrs, the best in the genre is this type, where the song structures exist, but are left open. Here there is more structured shit than usually from them, they dont pull the 0.001 second songs on here either, they re almost like a normal grindcore band on this one. And CSMD are of course totally fucked up as usual.

The Solar Temple- Alone In Space
Ambient, deifnitely not noise, or grind, no blastbeats, no drums at all, just weird droning going on over space noise, but calm, nice, you might say idealized space noise. It has an interesting atmosphere. I like to listen to this when I am way too high. Its very soothing, and very calm. Not like the rest of this blog. So if your brains are oozing from too much grind, throw some of this on for good measure.

HAARP, Paranoia, Noise, Crust and Grindcore

The problem with conspiracy theories is their reliance on things we do not know. On the other hand, living in the kinds of economic and political systems that we live in, and seeing how much we are kept in the dark, and the fact that our governments have the right to not tell us what they are doing with out money, the average person is left with nothing else but the ability to speculate. We have certain facts, we know of certain actors on the international political stage, and we feel the effects. It is up to us to put these things together. But when there are powerful people who are powerful off of your money, doing things that you cannot understand and do not have access to, and mysterious deaths and illnesses happen, paranoia will run rampant.

In the Krupskaya post, I mentioned how the theme was the experiments that governments have done on their own, unwitting population, sometimes with disastrous results. Now, I present to you HAARP, an experimental facility that studies atmospheric conditions in the ionosphere, using EMP, and extra low frequency waves (known comically enough as ELFs). This facility is for research purposes only, but certain amounts of the research are off limits and we know that it is funded by the military industrial complex. Now whenever the military is involved in anything, especially if it's classified, after incidents like MK-Ultra, or the infecting of the Tuskegee townsfolk, mostly rural black people with syphilis, speculation is very much warranted. We know that a lot of the basis for this project is lifted from the work of Tesla, who had, among other things, an earthquake machine, that could indeed produce earthquakes. It was tested on mythbusters and shown to be real in Season 04, episode 17. I could not find a good link for that, sorry. But we know that the elements can be manipulated. It may have unforeseen consequences, and the fact that people who are more than willing, we might even say eager, to test on their own population are funding a potential giant weather manipulating site is again, the basis for paranoia.

The next band I am gonna talk about has a great interview where they talk about this, some nerdy shit, and also noisecore. Check it here.

If you want some scientific information on HAARP, not just my weak ass ramblings, go here.

So as I mentioned, Atrocious Madness, named after a Confuse EP, play noisy as fuck hardcore/crust shit, it's really good to listen to, and the lyrics are about war and animal rights, and also the stuff of conspiracy theories. The EP pictured above is about HAARP, but they have a bunch of songs about a bunch of shit. This is not a complete discography by far, for instance, I cannot find the tape I have pictured below. If any of you guys have it, please help me out, I really wanna hear it. I helped you, didn't I??? Of most interest to this blog is their split with Mass Seperation, a South East Asian grindcore band, playing tight as fuck, primitve grind/mince stuff. That CD is sheer genius, one side being them, and the other side just noise/crust shit, man, the stuff dreams are made of, I swear.

I left some shit off of the discography circuit, so here goes.

Apartment 213 are a powerviolence band of the most typical type, American, second wave, it is exactly what you would believe, except these guys kinda have a grind edge to them, which is awesome. Good band, had a split with Dahmer, really nail the genre, nothing too special, but this is a discography CD that I actually love listening to.

This band was totally off of my radar, because it has numbers in it. I don't like bands to have numbers in their names, except the band above, whose discography I just threw at you, and possibly D.S.-13. Other than that, they usually are not good. Then I saw this band play live, they whooped ass, and my bassist hooked me up with their demo. Since then I have been gathering their shit. Aesome is all of it, truly.

They play grindcore, pure and simple, with all of the things that make grindcore awesome, every second riff a balstbeat, super short songs, minute and a half songs, even two minutes sometimes, full of twists and turns, but either double time or blastbeat the whole time, or breakdowns. Not the metalcore kind, just riffage and pushing people around kind. Lots of double bass going on as well. Other than that it's not so metal influenced. Pure grind, in the vein of Insect Warfare and Cellgraft, PLF, and these bands.
DEMO 2008

Another addition to the things you guys should talk about more section, Enemy Soil were a weird and unique sounding American grindcore band. One of the members played in Pg. 99, which is an arch-screamo band, apparently, I would just call it weird emotional hardcore, but whatever. This band became Pig Destroyer, who, in my book, are not worth a half pence, even after seeing them live. The fact that this band turned into PD is fucking sad, I mean, just give this a listen. Their early shit is drum machine, which is a bummer, but the rest of it is awesome. Even those songs are good, but drum machine grind totally fucking kill it for me.

The riffage is dark and heavy, the band is totally a hardcore band, kinda like MK-Ultra, but with grind drums and grind licks galore. There are also half tempo and downtempo shit going on, plus grind, which is a fabulous combination. If you want some headfuck, come get it. Also not a complete discography, but pretty close.

Metal section coming up. This band I got from this blog, and if metal was still like this, I would have total interest in it. Not like the way it is now, is it? Like this, however, I will just keep posting things that I believe are good in the genre, and hope people will make shit like this perhaps in the future, and not let right wingers and corporate interest tear another genre to shreds.

The band is Black motherfucking Shepherd, don't know where they are form, I imagine from South America, cuz only they got thrash like this. Total Sarcofago worship, with funny voice, fastcore tempo thrash and some heavy/power riffs as well, dark as fuck, aggressive like crazy, solos going absolutely nowhere, but in the best of ways. The true metal experience is this album after a case of beer and like 2 spliffs.

The ladies of Nuclear Death played Doom/Death metal a million years ago, in its most sloppy, melancholic and hateful form. Chris Reifert of Autopsy had smoemthing or other to do with the band, they clearly worship his shit. They do end up sonding totally unique, and are fucking really, really creepy. The skoppiness is exceptional, but good, these folks had the right idea, metalheads just are not like this anymore. Some exceptions exist, I know, and I love them to death, but for the most part, I think I gave a fair assesment of the genre. Hollow bullshit is what its become. This is everything the band has ever done, as far as I know. These are rips of the re-issue CDs that Extremist records, the Drogheda guy's label, put out. My own rip, its old, aac format, convert it, you'll be better off.

The next two pieces of work are of the harsh noise variety, since you guys seemed to pick up on shit that sounds like it was made using that thing on the picture above. Krosot are from Malaysia, play power electronics, ro whatever you call earbleeding electronic noise nowadays. TGNM are from Japan, and are melancholy and all, but you would never know, harsh noise, PE attack, making you die.

So enjoy, till next time. Gonna try to keep things relatively constant, so beware.
