A WHILE IT'S BEEN
Damage Digital have been mentioned before, they are like a zanier, more "Japanese" version of Discordance Axis. They are really crazy, the song structures and drum beats are basically the same, but with extra annoying high snare, god I love it. I dunno why I haven't put up their two full lengths albums yet,vas I have listened the shit out of them, they are a bit more serious than the shorts. Probably because they are a Cephalochromoscope band, they play the kind of music that has its place on that wonderful blog. Which is where I got both of these albums.
DAMAGE DIGITAL- MOSS
DAMAGE DIGITAL- KABE
The next two tapes I wanna talk about are Agathocles stuff. The best AG material was written between 1994 adn 1998 in my humble opinion, and the best in that is when they played wiht that drummer guy who was really good at blastbeats. He was on all of their 95-96 shit. Most people do not like ot think of AG as being a good band, but they are. Even their live shit is killer on here. On one of the tapes they are playing n a radioshow, and it is fucking intense. Also on that tape is Rot form their classic, super burly, super primitive monkey noise attack of fucking rage state, when they were very sloppy and the songs were just SO good. On that tape also is the incredibly forgettable Masher. Mince band, though, so give em credit. Its hard to be Mince. The other tape is a live of AG and also has my special favorites Dahmer on it as well, and a creepy sounding, spazztic American or Canadian band (judging fomr the sound) called Jangle. They are kinda nice I guess. Too bad they released a tape with two of the best bands in the genre, because it is hard to get credit like that. Dahmer sounds hela raw and tight live. Sound Corrupter are also on here, they suck. Its like noise grind kindergarden.
Next up is the noisey, raw, raw shit of Melanocetus Murrayi. Truly unmarvelled in sheer pummeling onslaught of just garbage noise, this band can be exemplified in just one word: relentless.
The highlight of these tapes for me is the split with Industrial Noise. First off, Industrial Noise is fucking great, noise/grind or just raw grind, the music is weitten, but there si pplenty of just playing aorund in it too. Loose atmosphere, leaking almost. Its sick. And the MM side of it is like a noise grind band, but it sounds like a band, you can hear that there are insturments involved, its weird. Usually you dont know what the fuck is happening to your ear drums wiht these guys. Their self titled tape is like really fucking long, endless barage of noise. All of the tape rips were made by Marci, so big up for contribuiting.

So there was a hardcore band from the States called Deadfall. They released 3 EPs, did their thing, were around for a bit then split up. Then some of the members founded another band, called Nightstick Justice. The former was a fast, kinda political American hardcore, with, sometimes, blastbeats. The latter is more like an old school faster type of hardcore band, and is fucking killer. Not sure which one is better, overall, as they are both really good. I hardly know anything at all about these bands, but they are on par with Tear It Up for me.
DEADFALL- KEEP TELLING YOURSELF ITS OKAY

Leaving you yet again with some classics. All of these were intended for the blog a long time ago anyhow, so yeah. The first is Entrails Massacre and their split with Cruel Face. Fuckin eh, EM in their prime, probably one of their best records ever. I own this one, but this is not my rip, my vinyl rips are just NOT sounding good at all. Maybe if I wasn't a complete idiot with machinery of any sort, this would not be an issue. Cruel Face are a Brazilian hardcore band that has leanings towards grind. It is fucking great, and on this recors I would say they are as good as Entrals Massacre's side. For me to say that is quite an honour, really, I have a serious soft spot for EM. Tons of blastbeats, good sound quality, in a way, although extra fuckin grimey. Highly recommended.
The other is Excruciating Terror. I have not put anything on here yet form tem, and I cannot seem to remember why. For a while, I only had this EP of them, and when I got a hold of their longer material, I was disappointed. The riffs were great, even cooler than Phobia riffs, but so sloppy, with the drumming so shitty, and the sound so high tech and sterile, it was aweful. Since then I have come to love those two albums, but like how one loves a relative who is insane. This EP however, is true love. The vocals are great, the sound is grimey and foggy, and all kinds of different flavors of fucked up. Sloppy and raw too. Really some of the best grind you can get.

Next post coming soonish, lots of new shit to talk about, so keep an eye out.
