Tithe – Penance (No One Will Like You Metal)

Tithe – Penance (No One Will Like You Metal)

  At first I was getting annoyed by all the Jef Whitehead covers I was seeing in 43% of the promos I've had come in (that's exact math) and then I scoped this one and was like "okay, I get it." What a perfect arrangement! And what a great example of how cover art can […]

Collision – The Final Kill (Tears of Joy and Sadness Crossover Epilogue)

  Nothing these guys do is wrong, there I said it. Even their earlier work, when they more heavily leaned grindcore, is tolerable. But none of that "their early stuff is better" nonsense because they just kept getting better. Not only do they have the guts to wear their own shirts, they realized that grindcore […]

The Atrocity Exhibit – Extinction Solution (I Will Buy The Shirt)

  Yeah you know this site, we rip on grindcore something fierce. Not sorry. Usually the trash we get is not just trash, it's the oozing bile sinking to the bottom of the trash. No, it's lower than that, it's the blackened stench you can't even see that emanates from that foul liquid and not even […]

Butcher ABC – North of Hell (ABCs of Goregrind)

  I know I've heard of this Japanese grind machine before, this Butcher ABC, I just can't remember where. Then again, there are a ton of bands in Japan just like this, but this particular gathering of grind maniacs is one of the oldest. They've been around for almost 25 years now, and that's an amazing […]

Holocausto – War Metal Massacre

Where can I even begin with this album, which I've listened to at least three times a week for the past four months? I started where I usually do, by looking around at what others have to say, after I've already formed my own opinion. I often find myself alone, or partially, constantly saddened by […]

Cassette Assault – Some Stuff That’s Good

Now listen, you might think I'm lazy, and I get that, but this is a one-man show currently and I have to make sure you get your money's worth. Yes, you're not paying for anything, but if you think about it you're using some bandwidth or data of some sort, and that costs somebody something, […]

Collision – Satanic Surgery

Did you know that grindcore can seriously be a real genre?  It's true.  Unfortunately, not true enough, but when it's true, it's TRUE in ALL CAPS.  Perhaps it's just difficult to be that true, considering all the obstacles.  The ineffectual "humor", the sloppy chord work for legitimacy, the samples, you know it all already because […]

Ape Unit – Turd

Grindcore is dragging on its last legs.  Scratch that, it didn't have any legs over the past ten years, it was a mere torso with arms.  Now those arms are gone, and it's ground its lower half into so many surfaces it's about up to its neck, close to the brain, where it can finally […]

Pink Mass – Slvt Kvlt

We went on a bit of a tirade against grindcore on Facebook the other day, and it was justified.  Grindcore over the past decade has sunk into a swamp of humor in order to hide terrible musicianship.  You're probably laughing we used the word "musicianship" within this discussion, but seriously, we can't take it anymore. […]

The Kill – Kill Them…All

The Kill – Kill Them…All

Typically, especially over the past five years, any time we've received a promo from a band that labels itself "grindcore", it's practically already set to become kindling, a Goodwill donation that sits there for years, or something just to destroy and take one's anger out on in a time of need.  Seriously, rule of thumb, […]
