With this post, I end a marvelous year. A lot of shit happened this year that made it well worth being alive. Tough fuckin year as well. Anyway, I wanted to do one last post before finishing another one that I will be posting thats gonna take some time, also, I wanna hit you guys with my rips already, which I am always talking about, some shit none of you have heard of. But that will also have to happen in 2012, so until then , there is this post, which also incidentally puts us over the 500 mark.

501 fucking albums on here, man. Fuck.

I wanted to post shit that was grimmy and nasty, and weird and memorable, but still just music that did not play too large a role in my life, for me at least.

Most of this is other peoples shit.

Death Dust Extractor are from Japan, and they are a great noise/crust band from where the fuck else, Japan, and they pwn in a big way. This is a demo of theirs that I swear I have posted before. This keeps happening to me. Anyway, it's from Damaging Noise, which you should always check out. It sounds like a fucking vacuum cleaner is hooked up to an amp at various pitches, screaming from a radio and people banging on shit, roughly to a d-beat. It is fucking filthy and raw as hell.

No Less are another one of those bands that I thought I fucking posted earlier, and shame on me if I did not. They are what Hardcore would sound like in a perfect world. Fucked up on weed, PCP and liqour, shit talking, tough as nails, psycho, noisy, fast, tons of weird shit, samples, ghetto ass attitude, man, this band had it all. I guess you could call it noisecore, or PV even, but I dunno, it's just really ghetto, psychotic hardcore. Filthy as well. Got most of it off of Pabst from Am I mean?, another great blog with tons of obscure shit, much better than this one.

By the way, if any of you know anything about any more releases form these guys, please let me know. I know of some other bands they were affiliated with, and they all pretty much rule, foremost being the band Plutocracy, who I will post of in greater detail elsewhere.

I am also gonna put up some compilations that don't suck. These are rare, mind you, I sometimes get the idea to make a compilation, but I am just too afraid that it will end up sucking, like 90% of all comps inevitably end up doing. But these comps are good. The Vivisection on the 3 way to the gore comp is not the Vivisection of song and legend from Japan, they are the less good, but still awesome, German, gore influenced Vivisection. Check them out.

Hip Cops are an elephant in the room band to me. They were at least, until that Archagathus post, when I got to hear them. They fucking rule, the stuff they do on that split is amazing, grindcore and hardcore, filth, etxra fucking filth, putrid atmosphere, just fucking everything up all the time a light speed.

This EP is less filthy, but still pretty goddamn nice, its got d-beats and a bunch of other shit on here that there is less of on the 4 way. Still, this shit also rules, good fucking solid grind/hardcore.

So there is Christian Goregrind. I bring this up for the sake of novelty, and also, to educate you of its existence. Christians, once again, are stealing our culture.

While the two bands mentioned here, Vomitorial Corpulence and Empty Grave, both fucking rule, and have the good attitude towards gore, which is the gore/noise approach, and are both filthier than a motherfucker, they are fucking Christians for crying out loud. These are the moments that are so upseting. Its like, after having been into Hate Forest for like 3-4 years, and having heard rumors of their being a Nazi band, I find out deifnitely that its true. I still like Hate Forest, and will probably post it even, although I dunno, but this is just crazier.

With these bands though, there is no doubt, they blast that hateful, idiotic, bigoted fucking Christian message loud and clear, talking about killing and maiming demons and shit, dissecting Satan and all that. I mean, besides being the most ridiculous thing in existence, I am sure that this is also a sin, according to most denominations of Christianity. I mean, nowhere does it say thou shalt not play grindcore, but it fucking oughta.

To finish it off, something Satainc must be posted, or else problems might occur. Blasphemophager are a fucking flithy, raw, and thermonuclear black metal band. Their drummer I think might have extra limbs. Hyperblast, war metal, shrieking, fuzz and filth all day long. This is their split with Necroholocaust, who are slower and more death metal influenced, but we shall not hold this against them,a s they too, bring the harsh filthy metal.

Thanks for sticking around, almost 2 years, 500 albums, 2012 is going to be full of crazy shit as well. Hope the world will in fact end, although I don't see much chance of that coming around. Here's to hoping.....

If that is the case, then maybe, just maybe, you will have enought ime in your life to finish listening to every single Agathocles split in this post. The guy who runs this Derivados website is a fucking maniac. 119 Agathocles related entries. Insanity.

Crust, Metal, Blastbeats And Gabber Hardcore

After all that grind from last post, your ears are probably still ringing with some of the best music on earth. To counterbalance, I am gonna post a bunch of stuff that has blastbeats that is technical, and metal, and well played, and all that shit. I am also gonna post some fast, fast, hard electronic music that only people who use/used drugs are going to appreciate fully. The rest of you might like it, but there are a bunch of things you simply will not hear if you have spent most of your life sober.

Also, first and foremost, I would like to post some crust. Masskontrol I have talked of before, their Recycle Or Die flexi is up on this blog for download, good luck finding it. They are everything I love about crust, fast, fucked up, political, but very antisocial and anti-human, and every once in a while contain blastbeats, but more often, just those fastcore tempo, not quiet blastbeats, which I also love. Those, if they get fast enough, are true blue blastbeats. This band is a lot like Disrupt, who may well be the best crust band on earth. But these guys have a less distinctely American, particularly Oregon, feel to them, they are more like what Swedish expats who spent 20 years in an American ghetto would write, if they were imprisioned for blowing people up. It's that good.

Another thing that I love is when Japanese bands pretend to be Finnish, or Swedish bands. Kriegshög, who do not actually sound like Krigshot, which is weird, have a great name, great sound, and that one riff in that song "Zouo" is like the bets crust riff ever. It comes back on like evry second song of theirs, and is on every album. This is d-beat all the way, and it sounds great. Raw, but audible, noisy and screechy, but with discernible riffage, prime band for covering. Also, they have great fucking art work.

Another awesome band, this time from Germany, and employing no blastbeats what so ever, are Recharge. The reason I like them is because they are simply put, the best imitation of Discharge out there. A lot of the times dis-bands do not sound like Discharge at all, they sound like clone bands for sure, but of each other and not of Discharge. Which is fine and dandy, if you ask me. However, this band, they do sound so much like the original its amazing. They have their own "unique" things going on, but lets get real, its d-beat, its typical, it is exactly what you would expect, down to every last syllable and riff played. Just a great example of how to bite well.

This part of the post is going to be all about the life and times of Mr Helmkamp, who is a metal guy who did such amazing bands as Angelcorpse, Conqueror, Revenge, and a host of other ones. Aside from being a main force in the whole bestial balck/war metal thinggie, and providing the negative ideological basis for the genre itself, he is also a great fucking musician. His music is thick, dense and full of fucking blastbeats. He is a musical genius of our times. I don't know how much of his ideology I am willing to buy, however, it is very war oriented, and smells a little like the extreme right wing, although he could not be said to be a part of that movement. However, most of it has to do with reevaluating the worth of humanity in general, which I am all for, and also of destroying religious folks which I also give the thumbs up for. As for the warlike-ness and the whole thing, I truly believe that that is all shinnanigans, although I saw Revenge live in Brooklyn in like, fuckin, when was that, 2002?? I think it must have been, he seemed pretty fucking serious about whatever it is that he writes songs about. The lyrics don't make much sense to be real with you. At least, not to me, because I am not a part of the 'iron goat command'. I do not have command of the Iron Baphomet. In fact, there is very little I have command over. Thats why I keep cats. Plus, they eat vermin. Can't go wrong with cats.The first band I know of that is his is Conqueror, which is the precursor to Revenge, its the same, except not played as well. I have already posted their split with Black Witchery, and now, here is their demo, its very much like all their other stuff.

His best band by far is Angelcorpse. They are technical, and awesome, and also somehow, remaining old school. Possibly one of the fastest death metal bands out there, which is saying a lot. Tons of speed, the guy must be like some sort of machine, really, super on point, super fast, super hard all the time. Making me look bad.Their best one, in my opinion, although they are all excellent, would have to be The Inexorable. Iron, Blood and Blasphemy is a collection of demos and EPs and shit, where they play classic heavy metal and black/thrash songs, and old school shit as well, first demo, that sort of thing, and also, it includes a live as well. It is a little bit less uncompromising and non-stop onslaught like as the rest of their stuff. Their new one, Of Lucifer And Lightning, has gotten a lot of flack, but I think that one is also awesome, but you can defiinitely hear that they all have a million side-projects by this point. Its not as good as some of their other stuff, but its still some of the best death metal out there period.

The band that he recently did was called Kerasphorus, and its very much like Angelcorpse, except its got this weird-o, mystical, black metalish thing going on with it. Its super good though, you need to listen to it at least twice just to remember the riffs. Fucking really, really good. Dense, intertwining, frothing and bubling cauldron of blasphemy and hate. Pure awesome.

Revenge is like his most relentless band ever. Its got shrieking and shitty sounds and just blastbeats the whole time, and nothing else but, except sometimes there is a guy screaming into a pitch shifter. 2-3 minutes of just blasting and menial riffage, and screaming about hate and death. It is war metal to the fullest. I would hate to play this music live, it must be tiresome. Fucking good to listen to, if you are trying to kill someone though. They have a bunch more, but they are all like this.

Another great band who Mr Helmkamp was NOT invovled in,as far as I know, but sounds like he might have been, is Diocletian. Named after the last Roman Emperor to persecute Christians, the band plays war metal with a balckened, mystical edge that wil make you fucking freak out. Relentless in its brutality and non-stop onslaught, the riffs are hardly memorable, but fuck em, its about the sheer trudging, slaughtering power of this band. Also, they are from New Zealand. What the fuck?

Unfortunately, mediafire will not allow me to upload anything over 200 MB. So, I cannot post the awesomeness that is Terorrdrome. Suffice to say, in the world of dance music, Gabber is the equivalent of what Grindcore is in Punk. It is fast, relentless, hardcore as fuck, noisy, and evil. If noisy, evil, fast shit is what you like, then you will like this shit as well. I wanted to upload all of them, but here is a post where you can find them, they are compilation CDs, ten of them, and they are super fucked up.

And to keep the tradition going, Im going to leave you with some classics.

This is Tumor, from Germany, and they are an old school as fuck noise/grind band, playing the genre in the way that I like it to be played. Semi-written, semi-composed, short songs, blastbeats the whole time, super fucking fast and sloppy as well, plenty of improvisation, grimmy but audible sound, distortion to fucking deafness. Got it off of the Damaging Noise blog, so props to Shawn for always keeping shit as real as he keeps it, rant wise and music wise as well. Grimy little piece of shit of an album.


And one more, just for the road. Y'all know I love Regurgitate, this one specific time of theirs, when they absolutely nailed the genre. Nailed it. This is a record smack dab in the middle of that time frame, when Rgte were the best grindcore band on the planet. Well, maybe thats a little bit much, but seriously, they were great. This is their split with Psychotic Noise, and it fucking rules, everything that is good about grind, lo-fi, mysterious sound, plenty of noise, great riffs, blast beats, double times, sick vocals, great primitive riffs, more noise, gore, hatred and a high snare sound.


Till next time.
