Okay, so I don’t normally do this, but as an introductory description of Mankind Crawls I’m just going to directly lift the promo blurb –
This is quite hard to classify, but essentially Den Förstörda Människans Rike is a festering, ugly mix of Swedish death metal, hardcore/crust and Swedish grind.
The band’s 2014 EP A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics was a brief glimpse into the world of The Drip and what they were capable of. I said in the review that the EP bodes well for a future album release and that they were ones to watch. Well, after a longer wait than Continue reading
Prisoner 639 get things going in a slow-burning fashion, opening up with lots of noise, distortion and feedback. Before long some drums and bass enter the fray, producing grim sludgy sounds. After a couple of minutes of this the Continue reading
Okay, well, this is gloriously fucked up. In under five minutes Bliss Tech reveals itself to be a chaotic and anarchic blend of powerviolence, electronics and digital hardcore. Continue reading
Due to my love of their first EP Permanence, as well as all things Primitive Man and Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire, (who they share members with), this release has been highly anticipated by yours truly.

A member of Chalice of Suffering has unleashed this small, short gem of a grind release. It’s brutally concise and an utterly vicious little beast.

Oh yeah! It’s always fun to hear a band that take a standard style and mutate it with their own passionate interpretation, and Grossty do exactly that with the short-bouts-of-violence grindcore template.
Featuring 21 tracks in just under 21 minutes, this may be short but Continue reading
Unyielding Love play ultra-extreme dark, blackened grindcore, and they sound pissed. This is noisy and littered with feedback and chaotic delivery.
