BLASTBEAT CRUST! (and some more stuff)

So, this one is gonna be about crust, crust with blastbeats. Why? Because all you guys wanna run with is melodic ass neocrust and slow ass stenchcore, and I have not heard a decent crust band in a million years. Don't get me wrong, I love Misery, and slow ass crust (although neocrust is fucking shit, most of the time), its fine, but lets not forget the real deal here. I play in a crust band, its got blastbeats, and everyone is like, oh my god, how uniue and interesting!! It's not unique, it's not interesting, y'all just forgot how its done. Looking at you younger cats mostly, older guys still know whats good, for the most part, although yall getting soft too.

The picture is of my wife and child as of last year in front of a big as spiece of some cat named "Grind". I know, it looks like "Gryno" or some shit, but it is actually grind. Ready?

Autoritar are form Germany, and unlike most music from Germany, with a few notable exceptions, they do NOT suck ass. They play tons of d-beats and blastbeats, tight enough, but loose enough to let the soul of the music waft around. Gotta be like one of my favorites. The lyrics are fairly mundane PC punk lyrics. Not that impressed by them in that sense. But they fucking rule, the vocals are total cookie monster, they get to be hillarious, especially on the split with AG.

Two good bands, but Autoritar fuckin take the cake. Really anarcho, super crusty shit on this one, hardly any blast beats.

Fuckin awesome. I dont like Coma, but Autoritar simply rule on this one. Fast as fuck, Bastard cover, blast beats all the way, d-beat song on here as well. This is the epitome of a good split EP for me. Coma play like mid-tempo really brutal d-beat, tis swell, but no blastbeats. So....

This might be a repost, I fucking hype both of these bands like non-stop. They both rule, VFB is at their peak o this one, super noisy, sloppy, fucked up, really ridiculously fast, great riffage, really crazy shrieking vocals. Autoritar are not their usual selves on this one, and rule slightly less then some of their other releases.

D-beat, for the most part. Both of these guys. It's decent, Autoritar slaughter the legendary Swedes, though.
This is my least favorite Autoritar release. Hardly any blasting, funny intros, though. A good band knows who to do splits with, though, and of course, Warsore fucking rule. They are not my favs either, but you now what you are getting with them, always. This one is a 12", it's fairly long, but its alright.
Again, hardly any blastbeats, but really, really decent. Good d-beats, fucking awesome riffage, funny vocals, its got the standard Autoritar stuff going for it.
And of course, all good bands have a split with Agathocles. This is a great record, both sides absolutely slay, classic AG stuff, and Autoritar absolutely slay on this one, they have a song called disbeat on here, lots of fast stuff as well.
Oh, and if you got a problem with my Agathocles obsession, then here is a record for you. Its their splti with Vomit Fall, who are like an awesome grind band, and I have never heard from them since, or before. I dont know where they are from, but they rule. Also, AG play awesome music on this one. This is one of those rare gems that has an atmosphere to it, feels like nothing else. Both sides. Awesome. Get it here.

Destroy are my favorite crust band. See why find out for yourself. Fir all of you lazy assholes, here is a discography, although I really do suggest that you get some of their EPs and dwell on them first, cuz they are so awesome, you need a couple of listens. These records feel so unlike anything else at all. It's one of those cases when yo can ear the chemistry and the awesomeness on the records. And of course, tons of fastcore and even quicker blastbeats, great shrieking and also a really, really bad ass growl. But its like punked out, man, just listen.
Best 7", perhaps in my collection at all. Great shortb songs, really catchy, longer crust songs are also awesome, drumming si fucking on par, vocals, as always,a nd every riff is memorable. Its like edge of your seat the whole time that it is on. Just the best crust band, by far.

Destroy!/ Disrupt
Everything that is good about crust. Grime, blastbeats,, d-beats, hardcore shit, mid-tempos, awesome growling and yelling, good lyrics, pissed off, but still somehow disgusting and grating. Really mindblowing shit. The bets meets the best.
Destroy on here, Hellnation on here, Assuck on here,a nd some band that is always on the comps that are totally left in the dust, this time called Confrontation. All of these three other bands have been on this blog, you know they are absolutely great, Destroy sound like a little bassier and more low end than usual, and the songs are awesome, I love these tracks.

Axiom are one of those Tribal War crust bands form Portland, some of these folks now play in Hellshock, with whom I have had the pleasure to drink with, and also in Resistant Culture, who I might post later on, and who play like Native American hardcore, its weird, sorta beatdownish. But anyway, who cares, Axiom play crust, its full of blastbeats, really, really evil and dark sounding, these folks know about their metal, but do not over do it, in fact, tis the type of fats crust that leans heavily on the hardcore side.

This si an EP, its crappy sound quality, the upload aint that good either, but its awesome, more metal then any of their other stuff. Awesome EP though, the intro is really good as well. The riffage is great, but the drumming takes it all.

Real classic crust shit, with blasbeats. More hardcore then anything else, has a spoken word track on here about suburban american punks who pretend to be poor and thus squander all of the wealth that is at their disposal. Really good little monologue, although I do not like spoken word on my records, but this one is aight.
Their best one in my opinion. Four tracks, absolutely rules, blastbeats and a classic d-beat tune on here as well. This one is really awesome.

Okay, last band I wanna talk about today is Dismachine. Big up to Dr. Slayer for hooking me up with these guys. Fucking grindcore band, with this name, they are crusties, but the music is straight up grindcore, for real. Its awesome.
Grindcore band versus some PV. Really noisy and fucked up split, really good material, but of course, Dismachine take the cake with their crusty feeling grindcore.
Same members in both fo these bands, Cumbrage is a d-beat band, really negative and fucked up atmosphere on both of these guys. Dismachine are a filthy, raw as fuck band on this one, they absolutely rule.
So yeah, keep that shit in mind.

Grab a fat sack, I'm bringing the never before heard shit (on tihs blog), so sit down. It's been a while, I know, had mad shit to take care of and Marci has been a total flake about caring for the blog. I got two active bands now, Im gonna tour Holland and Germany and Slovakia and the Czech republic, and am gonna play a gig with Ratos De Porao. Pretty neat, the other band, Boz Cordolla, is recording in may, so I have had my fair share of shit to deal with, besides hustling to stay alive, raising my kids, and fucking your girlfriend.
But I gitta keep shit real, my blog is a priority. I just have not found the time to deal with it nowadays. Some of you might know, I love dub. Not dubstep, not reggae, old, grimmy as fuck, majestic as fuck, soaring high as a kite dub. And yes, there are bands out there that mix in blastbeats with dub, although they are not dub bands. The first one that comes ot my mind is Real Reggae.
They are Japanese, they fucking rule, and they mix all sorts of genres. I hope they mad eit through the tsunami unuhurt, so far all of my friends on that island have been alright, and no one is dead, although some contacts disappeared. I hope all is well over there, I am personally invested in the well being of Japan...anyway, back to the post. On some of their recordings they are just like any other Japanese fastcore band, but then, sometimes, they bust out the dub, the reggae, the pop, the grind, all sorts of metal as well, its awesome. I am just gonna put a couple of ones up here, as their discography is extensive, and I do not have all of it.

Real Reggae- THC best+ Maze
Two albums, mostly fastcore stuff, some dub thrown in, pretty decent. This is the basic starter package of Real Reggae's shit. If Real Reggae was weed, than this album would be a sick bag of Northern Lights.

Real Reggae- Time Lag's Memories
Totally engrish title, but the sickest album. Such a diverse array of shit being played, which I usually do not like, but they pull it off somehow. There is even a pop song on here, with instruments, granted, but it is a fucking pop song. This would be like a donkey dick of some reallly potent super skunk.

Real Reggae- Hellnation split
Two of my absolute favs in almost grindcore tempo HC. Favorite Hellnation song on here as well, called 'Thug'. Sloppy, lo-fi, fast, fucking great. This would be like a dime sack of haze thats tiny and grimy, but gets your whole crew blazed.

VA- Tomorrow will be worse 1.
A comp of a bunch of 7" materials, includes the split between Hellnation and Nice View, Capitalist Casualties and Flash Gordon, also, some Real Reggae that starts off wiht the most killer of all dub reggae intros. And then breaks into their old style of fucking things up. This would be like a schmorges board of dime sacks, all pretty good, some pretty fruitty.

Hellnation-Real Reagge- Slight Slappers split CD
3 way split, Hellnation bring not their peak performance, but close to it, emoed out intro as well, pretty weird. But then, like a bunch of short fast songs, and then two live sets one of Slight Slappers, and one of Real Reggae. I dont much like live sets, but these ones are alright, I guess, however, on the end of this is like one of the most killer dub tracks of all time. It starts with a dub track they played live, that one is noisy as fuck, and good, and then it changes into a studio dub track that is just mind blowing. This would be like spliff your friend and you roled, where some of it is schwag, and some of it is like golden, bomb ass nugs.

By the way, if you wanna get into dub, here is all of the Commandments Of Dub series from Jah Shaka. Enjoy.

The other thing I want to share with you is a recent discovery of mine, the early demos of Embrionic Death. The album I uploaded and ripped is called Stream of Solidarity, and is like tech/thrash/death form the early 90s, so complicated shit and weird riffing, but not in that sentence band, metalcore meshuggah none sense, which I fucking despise. Its actually good, the songs make sense and progress, even though there is like a million riffs in each song. And then I get an e-mail with some fucking awesome links in it, to their early stuff, which also rules, but is primitive.
However, this brings me to the second part of the story. It has to do with goregrind. Goregrind nowadays fucking sucks, period. Its been sucking for a while, and few people are keeping it real. This is the type of shit that should be run, Carcass, General Surgery type shit, except this one is better played and unique to a certain extent. More gore I like. Hope you enjoy, next time I will try to do a post about crust with blastbeats in it. hopefully, that will happen, been meaning to do so. Also, a post form Marci should be around soon. Also, last demo is an old rip, its in AAC format.
