There has been too much weird shit on the blog lately. I got away from the real grind since that mincecore post, I have been boring you with black noise, metal stuff, spacey noise shit, and what not. So I decided to be good to y'all, and bring back albums that are typical for this blog. Aside from that, there will be a short rant and then some shit I will post that will catch you of guard. You know it's true. I like some shit that will very much surprise the shit out of all of you. So let's start with the unsurprising stuff first.

Syntax are a band I picked up off of Cephalochromoscope, still one of the best blogs ever. Not kissing ass, just stating facts. They sound a lot like Discordance Axis, who are godlike and to be emulated always, except a little bit more breakdownish, and with more of these weird drum fills. Otherwise, total clone band. Which I don't mind even for a split second. I guess we don't have a name for oursleves, but I definitely see this sort of pot head, grind freak whose life has totally been changed, for the better, by Discordance Axis, and a host of other bands, closely realted to them. Maybe we need to start thinking about our own sub-culture, make it into a trend, get rich off of stupid American suburb kids, then 10 years down the line complain about how it was only true when it was unknown, beat up on new comers, come up with our own piercings, and look down on everyone else, before quiting and getting a day job at Sunoco Oil.

Or just go nameless and unknown, but know that we exist. And no other mention shall go of this, except for these few words, on this unknown blog.

You know there are like 5-10 good grindcore bands around the earth in any given minute. It's true, so if your band starts to suck, know that the internet is winning the cultural war in China. Hey, I would sacrifice your shitty band for a good chinese grindcore band. But if that band starts to exist, you know what they are going to need on their hard journey to victory? Agathocles. You can never have enough Agathocles, all of you are starting to forget that, or trying to pretend like that's not the case. So here is some classic Agathocles.

Also, while on the subject of Agathocles, I would like to mention, in an attempt to not let cool things die out, the existence of Mitten Spider split records, two of them. One with, of course, AG, and one with their japanese counter parts, Unholy Grave.I have one of their splits, the one with AG of course, but I have not ripped it yet. So this is someone else's rip. Whatevs. Mitten Spider are noisy, fucked up, and play like, grind/hardcore I guess. Really its well into the noise category. So yeah. They are also super ghetto.

Tizedes És A Többiek is an old school Hungarian hardcore/punk band, and I am posting this, lacking blastbeats and all that shit, because of a conversation I had with my guitarist. Guys, Hungarian old school punk is not like any other sort of music, it has its own little elements that are not present in anything else, yet it is for sure early hardcore influenced. Its very interetsing, people outside of Hungary dont know of its existence, so, here is a classic of the genre. Raw, melancholic, old school and punker than a hedgehog in a leather coat.

You know how I was all butt hurt about not having anything from Grudge, other than their split with Regurgitate, right? Well, thanks to this awesome blog, I found another EP from these guys, entitled Raw Grind. That is precisely what it is, raw, old school, filthy japanese grindcore. They sound a bit like Gore Beyond Necropsy on this one, three miles of distortion, but everything so downtuned that the fuzz has this aggresive quality even before they start playing, and everything is constantly feeding back. The vocals are really weird, too. Not what you would expect at all. Lot's of rock and rollish shit in there. What's with Japanese noise/grind stuff always going for that rock n rollish quality?

Another old band, this is Denak, with a 10 inch ingeniously entitled "Grindcore". This band rules for a number of different reasons, one of them being the vocals sounding like they are coming from a megaphone being yelled into a tape deck some 150 miles off. The other is the sick ass blast beats these guys deliver. Also, there are slow riffs in basically all of the songs, and they are always awesome. These guys know what to put into a song, keeping it orthodox, but extremely enjoyable. No surprises on here, the sound is classic Denak, in one word, pure awesomeness.

Next up I wanna post some shit from PLF, an American grindcore band that kicks ass. Other than having a split with Disturbance Project, Massgrave and Uzi Suicide, whose name is better than its music, but it would beh ard to live up to that one, anyway, PLF totally fucking slays, and always plays an awesome cover, too. Very typical fo the American, West Coast sort of grind, they play awesome riffs with fuking fast ass blastbeats the whole way through, songs hardly ever over one minute, almost never reaching two. The acronym stands for Pretty Little Flower. I always thought that was hillarious as well.


Disturbance Project are the band that came after Denak, with a singer from Ohio. They are an awesome band, more of the old school, really fast type of grindcore. They are really good peoples as well.

I could have sworn that I put this shit up before, but if I have not, then now is the time. Also mentioned here is Terrorismo Musical, who I could swear I posted already too, but it's not in my Mediafire files, so I guess I didn't. It's made by the same guys who make Go Filth Go and Melanocetus Murrayi, and this is their gored out grindcore band, although its not very gore, its fucking intense grind, with some great vocals. Awesome band, great riffs, true grindcore.

Also long overdue is the promise of my giving you guys all of the Archagathus I can find. I already put their split with DT80K up here, but it was mentioned that it is not enough. So Ima hook it up for you guys. Great band live as well, mincecore to the fullest. Most of this shit came from this blog. If you are into old school sick grindcore, you will do yourself a favor and check this out.

Also, there is some music which has blastbeats, but also a lot of really gay stuff as well. I want to post some of it, because it has not been posted, and I love some of it. Usually it's this ime of year only that I can listen to this shit, but then it feels real good. Real good.

It's this kind of music that cannot be called grind in reality, but for lack of a better description, it has been lumped in with the grind category. Its technical, nice sounding, and involves blast beats. By current standards these are supposed to be representatives of different genres, but realistically, they sound similar enough to me.
Alienation Mentale are a good example of this. A lot of avant-garde shit going on, but definitely death/grind roots, strange vocals, riffs all over the pace, intense blast beats as well. I believe they are Czech. Not entirely sure, though.


Bucket full of teeth are made by a bunch of screamo guys, its American, it involves noise, and it was supposed to be a grindcore project. Needless to say, its not grindcore at all, but its fast, its short, its aggressive, it involves screaming and feedback, so I like it. It does give the format a very interesting twist. Pretty harsh, pretty hard to listen to, but well worth it.


Also kind of like this, too smart for its own good type of musci with blastbeats is a band that is definitely grindcore, except with hardly any distortion,a weird thin sound, technique, weird artsy shit and a bunch of noise. They are Asterisk, and this is their discography CD.


Back to the full on grind. I have finally found the much anticipated Ulcerrhoea/Academic Worms/Warsore/Feculent Goretomb 4 way split tape, on the aorementoned blog, which by the way totally fucking rules. It might be the isngle bets blog on the internet. This guy has shit I have been looking for forever. This shit is basically noise, if you really like old school sick disgusting grindcore, this is the tape for you. Split tapes are the format for this musical genre.


Also psyched to tell y'all, Chappa'ai stuff is now oficially done and mastered, and the production of the physical tapes themselves has begun. 13 minutes of fucked up space/noise grind. Just recorded the last track o harsh noise on to it, its a really good space grind/harsh noise combination thinggie. First time I post any of my own shit, other than that Human Error split I linked a while back. Anyways, lots of fun, you guys will love it, for fans of 7 Minutes Of Nausea, Gore Beyond Necropsy and MSBR, and only if you like all three of these. Otherwise, probably you will hate it.
Okay, over and out.

  1. Damn nice post. Also, thanks / cephalochromoscope also approves of blastbeat worship.

    That Asterisk band is well under the influence of Discordance Axis. There's a quite "technical", but excellently noisy, German band in love with DxAx - White Eyes. I mention this because they make me think of some opposite end to that of Asterisk.

  2. Denak is sweet and has future members of Looking For An Answer and Nashgul, both of whom fucking rule. Speaking of which, I need to check out Disturbance Project.
    PLF fucking rule! They're from TX and have an ex member of Insect Warfare! Also Uzi Suicide are sweet and have members of In Disgust(top 5 grind bands ever).
