This is the debut album from US grindcore band Slugcrust.
Containing two members of WVRM, Ecocide contains 22 minutes of mayhem and carnage, the way they used to make it, but rarely do anymore. Well, Slugcrust do, and they do it very well. Continue reading “Slugcrust – Ecocide (Review)”
This is the third album from UK grindcore band Human Cull.
Somehow I missed this when it came out in January, so the fact that it’s now had a vinyl release seems the perfect opportunity to see what Human Cull’s third album has to offer. If you’re unfamiliar with the band, make sure you check out 2014’s Stillborn Nation and 2018’s Revenant for some great grinding fun.

This is the eighth album from Polish grindcore band Antigama.
I always enjoy hearing Antigama, as no matter what they’re doing you know you’re going to at least get a good base level of quality (see Meteor, The Insolent, and Depressant as good examples). Continue reading “Antigama – Whiteout (Review)”
This is the latest EP from To Dust, a deathgrind band from the US.
It’s been four long year’s since To Dust’s debut split with Bent Sea, so Nightmare Cycles is one I’ve been anticipating. With only an 11-minute duration in some ways it’s merely a taster to get the appetite whetted, but hopefully we won’t have to wait another 4 years for more material from the band. Continue reading “To Dust – Nightmare Cycles (Review)”
This is the debut album from Swedish grindcore band Grid.
I do like me some Swedish grind. Grid play merciless grindcore, with fiery blasts, punishing d-beats, and melodic crust all included in their aggressive formula. I very much liked 2017’s Human Collapse Syndrome, so I had high hopes for Livsleda, and it has not disappointed. Continue reading “Grid – Livsleda (Review)”
Axis of Despair are a Swedish grindcore band and this is their debut album.
Contempt for Man is the follow up to 2016’s Mankind Crawls, which was ferociously enjoyable and showed much promise for the band’s future endeavours. Well, they’ve now made good on that promise with a beefy 20 tracks of serrated grindcore; 33 minutes of new material. Continue reading “Axis of Despair – Contempt for Man (Review)”
Gut Drill is a one man grindcore band from the UK and this is his latest EP.
Here we have 8 minutes of brutal deathgrind, and what’s not to like? It’s well-delivered, and utterly uncompromising. Continue reading “Gut Drill – Shit for Brains (Review)”
Abjured are a German grindcore band and this is their second album.
Here we have 41 minutes of Scandinavian-inspired acidic grindcore, played with venom and a creative flair. Continue reading “Abjured – Absolutist (Review)”
Grid are a Swedish grindcore band and this is their latest EP.
Looking for some old-school Swedish grind, Nasum/Rotten Sound-style, with a pinch of Napalm Death? Grid have got you covered. Continue reading “Grid – Human Collapse Syndrome (Review)”
Axis of Despair are a Swedish grindcore band. This is their latest EP.
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 –
“Axis of Despair features former and present members of such bands as Nasum, Coldworker, Infanticide, Volturyon, Livet som Insats, Nervgift and Overtorture. To be exact: Continue reading “Axis of Despair – Mankind Crawls (Review)”
