so im gonna just start blawging here, not much to talk about right meow.
ACTIVE STENOSIS - REOXYGENATION EP / FINAL HISTOPATHOLOGY REPORT / SUCCUMBED TO INFECTION
3 songs by one-man goregrind rolemodel fame NX5 from greece. i can not really recollect accurately when AS started to morph from dysmernnorheic hemorrhage-like gorenoisish grind to this current state of amazingly written and played goregrind perfection, but i usually date it to reoxygenation ep in my mind. fucking flanged riffs, cant get them out of my head. this is not your normal 4/4 type of music, so many delicious twists and turns all over the fucking place, you'll need a lot of relistenings to catch up with the songs. inhuman amount of great ideas and riffs that (for me at least) you dont really get tired of. also, these songs will be featured on the grand fucking split/compilation megadevastating powerhouse tape out on a symphony of death rattles (braindead pierre's label), alongside a dozen of awesome goregrind bands, probably the best that are active right now, in my opinion.
final histopathology report and succumbed to infection are the two recent full lengths. succumbed to infection is probably in my top 3 albums of the year, altho it didnt really come out yet in it's whole glory (i have the songs, fuck you). i have nothing else to say other than i am overly satisfied with what AS is doing right now, so keep up the good fucking work, ioannis!!!
PSEUDOKU/BOLLOCK SWINE 7"
G-ZUS, GIVE ME A BREAK!!! this is fucking all over the place. kikanju fucking baku on drums and steinar from parlamentarisk sodomi on guitar, on both sides. pseudoku is psudoku with kanju on drums, its like spacegrind, but with even more insane drumming. kanju is a beast. i can not put it into words how much this record rules, hopefully i can make a rip of it sometime soon, i will post it. the bollock swine side is just fucking insane. if you're not familiar with BS's career, its kanju and a bunch of asian girls on vocals, with additional musicians as back-up noise for this hyperspeed improv blast junk that is so intense.......... fuck!!
BOLLOCK SWINE / CHAPPA'AI SPLIT TAPE
i waited for this split to happen for years now. BS is proably one of the few bands that plays so abrasive and unbearable noise, that even i cant stand to listen to it most of the time. it was meant to be total anti-listener improv noise garbage and they succeed, its totally torturing to listen throught their side of almost 30-something minute long non-stop insanity. the drums are so fast, most of the time i just drowns in an inaudible blastbeat tsunami of shit, bass grinding by rado from sedem minút strachu is just constant HNW alltogether and of course the fucking topping of the noise-cake is the asian girls screaming from the top of their lungs. the other day we tried to listen to the whole thing with mark, but needed to go out for a spliff to chill, and when we arrived back, the tape was still going on, non-stop and it was in-fucking-sane what we have experienced, it was really torturing. great job, krenj!!!
on the flipside is our band, so i wont write that much about it, just some background info and fun facts. some years ago a guy named ignacio aka 886VG came to tour by himself as a harsh noise artist over europe and i helped him to hang around while he was in hungary and eventually we ended up in our rehearsal room, recording noise jams, a lot of it. one of the recordings we later used to play some grind over it, a year later recorded some vocal tracks, and ta-da, you've got our side. we actually recorded the vocal tracks around 3-4 times over the years but somehow we couldnt manage not to loose them or forget about it, so it took quite some time for us to complete it. enjoy or die.
BRUTAL BLUES - S/T
just fucking wow. i love parlamentarisk sodomi. i loved psudoku's spacegrind even more perhaps. when i first heard the pseudoku/bollock swine 7" i couldnt believe it can be topped, but here we are at the end of 2014 and i cant think of anything more fucked up, twisted, inside-out, glorious and jawdropping album that came out this year. i think maybe this was one of the biggest surprises for me, because i havent heard about it before when it first came out, and oh god its genious. steinar of PxSx fame on guitars alongside the always amazing moha! drummer anders at the kit, they play something you would expect if you know what kind of music they have done before, but perhaps multiply the result. i love to listen to this release on non-stop and just smoke some weed and i instantly feel like just i am disorientedly floating in space on the edge of dying from nausea or whatever condition. unorthodox grind riffing, broken drum patterns and vocals that echo the fuck out in space. buy.
and let me leave here something to play myself out with, some delicious recent facialmess live footage.
