Escuela Grind are a grindcore band from the US and this is their second album.
I love me some grindcore, but what Escuela Grind give us is actually more interesting than just that. This is grindcore by way of huge metallic hardcore groove. Memory Theater takes the strengths of both worlds to produce a monstrous collection of tracks that cut a swathe through the opposition. Continue reading “Escuela Grind – Memory Theater (Review)”
No One Knows What the Dead Think are a grindcore band from the US and this is their debut album.
Featuring ex-members of the mighty Discordance Axis, No One Knows What the Dead Think contains 19 minutes of vicious, scathing music, (including a reworking of a Discordance Axis track). I haven’t been lucky enough to have this Continue reading “No One Knows What the Dead Think – No One Knows What the Dead Think (Review)”
Sissy Spacek are a grindcore band from the US and this is, apparently, their 30th album(!).
Holy crap this is intense. 39 tracks in a scant 15 minutes? Blood Hell. Continue reading “Sissy Spacek – Ways of Confusion (Review)”
Brutal Blues are a Norwegian grindcore band and this is their debut album.
I have been looking forward to hearing some more material from this band ever since 2014’s self-titled EP was unleashed. It seems like it’s been a long wait, and it has, I suppose.
Has it been worth it? Simply stated; yes it has. At least, if you’re a glutton for aural punishment. Continue reading “Brutal Blues – BB (Review)”
Closet Witch are a grindcore band from the US and this is their debut album.
Now here’s a band that don’t mess around. The music on this album is savage and vicious, as well as being pretty damn relentless too. Continue reading “Closet Witch – Closet Witch (Review)”
Atomçk are a UK grindcore band and this is their latest album.
I love me some unruly, pissed-off grindcore, and this certainly hits the mark. Continue reading “Atomçk – Every Room in Britain (Review)”
Grizzly are a grindcore band from Canada and this is their debut album.
Clocking in at just under 17 minutes, this is slightly deceptive as almost a third of the time is devoted to a surprisingly faithful cover of Pantera’s Mouth for War. Continue reading “Grizzly – Reaper (Review)”
Buckshot Facelift are a grindcore band from the US and this is their fourth album.
Here we have over 40 minutes of well-written deathgrind. The band take the brief, energetic bursts of punk and grindcore, and entwine them with the staying power of death metal, making for an album that exists on both worlds. Continue reading “Buckshot Facelift – Ulcer Island (Review)”
Brain Tentacles are an experimental/avant-garde/jazz/grind/doom metal band from the US. This is their debut album.
Experimental/avant-garde/jazz/grind/doom metal is a bit of a mouthful, and in all honesty doesn’t even properly do justice to the sounds that this album contains at any rate.
In addition to the usual drums and bass you’ll also find synth, piano and horns on this release. But no guitars. Continue reading “Brain Tentacles – Brain Tentacles (Review)”
This is the debut EP from UK grindcore band Unyielding Love.
Unyielding Love play ultra-extreme dark, blackened grindcore, and they sound pissed. This is noisy and littered with feedback and chaotic delivery.
Mix Discordance Axis, Nails, Full of Hell, thekevorkiansolution and Labrat together and you’ll be in the right filthy area. Continue reading “Unyielding Love – The Sweat of Augury (Review)”
