ABANGLUPA means "oppressed land" and shows that this band is not just art, it is also a form of protest against the ruling government of Rodrigo Duterte.
The two brothers show an impressive production on their debut release "Of Rats And Swine" and inspire with distinctive songwriting. Musically, the duo is moving somewhere between gloomy and crust-ridden metallic hardcore punk known for example from bands like TRAP THEM, CULT LEADER or ENABLER, mixed with decent dissonant grind/HC elements as you can find in early TODAY IS THE DAY records.
The result are 10 songs that develop a certain dynamic of its own, bursting with energy and rage, unleashing a dystopian atmosphere that is hard to find in hardcore in this intensity nowadays.
Highly anticipated split cd from Kiev's brutality combo. Absolutly stunning mix of punishing blasts, head slamming riffs and ultra monstrous vokills. Don't miss out!
Black metal inspired grind with epic doom, sludge parts, a real outburst of anger, full of raging guitars, tight fast drums, desperate vocals, deep grunts and even some blackish scream!
Inert are a more oldschool grindcore band.
Mincecore terror! Some new tracks by AG, recorded in Lima, Peru due their South American tour. Armatura is now defunct crust/grind band, I think it was first grind band in russian/moscow punk scene (if there was something else it was absolute shit or one day band).
Live split of Belgium's legend Agathocles with Canadian's G.O.D. This release came from the desire of wanting to document a special event, the arrival of Agathocles on Canadian soil for the first time ever. 25 songs (included Larm and Kuolema covers) of raw as fuck, mincecore and grindgore annihilation!
Split is limited to 1000 copies of double sided ecopaks
Finally after all the years here comes the reissue of the Akephal 12inch which originally came out back in 1997. This CD was supposed to have the recordings for their second and unreleased 12inch too, but these stupid drunk punks lost the master while they drunk a billion of beers and were partying hard with the Narshardaa guys... But guess what, they re-recorded five unreleased songs for you and we also put it on the CD. Everything is newly mastered and includes the recordings of the 12inch, a compilation song, the 5 unreleased songs and some bonus stuff. Not the single, because it fuckin' sucked, but who cares? The new material is still dark and brutal hc inspired by bands like URANUS, ACME or HIS HERO IS GONE with who they were supposed to tour before they split up some time before this could happen. nothing else we have to say, listen to this cd as it speaks for itself.
The second pathological autopsy attack from Italy. 9 new, fully with pus bemired songs of unbelievable goreality. For fans of EXHUMED, early CARCASS or HAEMORRHAGE.
(2nd album by this northgerman hardcore-band, and even more intense (and better produced!) than their 1st one -awesome energetic and aggressive hardcore, imagine a mix between melodic parts of Yage with chaotic&evil parts in a typical Bremen sound!!
Poland’s grandmasters of radical grindcore, ANTIGAMA, have completed the seventh full-length installation of their cutting edge arsenal, “The Insolent”, for release through their trusted alliance with Selfmadegod Records. Following the impact of their massive 2013-released “Meteor” album, ANTIGAMA will once again captivatingly scar the planet with the inundation of “The Insolent”. Seeing the band further along their ongoing path of progression, “The Insolent” contains another intriguing alloy of their futuristic grind savagery heavily diversified with cosmic exploration and harsh dissonance through ten new tracks of unorthodox, rapid forward-thinking metal. Recorded in February at JNS Studio in Warsaw, “The Insolent” was engineered by Pawel Grabowski, mixed by Pawel Grabowski and the band, and mastered by Scott Hull at Visceral Sound in Bethesda, Maryland (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), the album features a very special guest appearance of the legend of Polish electronic music scene, Władysław “Gudonis” Komendarek, and bears cover art designed by Bartek Rogalewicz.
ANTIGAMA’s sixth studio full-length since forming in 2000, “Meteor” is the revered act’s first proper album since 2009’s acclaimed “Warning”, and following two LPs with Relapse Records, will see the band returning to longtime allies Selfmadegod Records, their first LP for the label since 2005’s innovative “Zeroland”. The recently completed composition “Meteor” once again proves all over again why the band continually reaps such accolades with the media fans as both one of the most brutal bands of the genre as well as one of the most cutting-edge. With eleven new tracks of primal ANTIGAMA annihilation, “Meteor” reverts back to some of the bands more intimately brutal early material with thirty minutes of ultra-tight grindcore explosiveness, yet continues to carry the band’s detrimentally inventive edge, integrating brief progressive soundtrack ventures and more noise and programming elements. Recorded at Progresja Studio in Warsaw with producer Pawel "Janos" Grabowski (Masachist, Lost Soul) and mastered by Scott Hull (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer), the album also features a guest appearance by Michal Lapaj from world renowned Polish progressive rock band Riverside.
Years in the making, this spectacular 3-way split between ANTIGAMA (Poland), THE KILL (Australia) and NOISEAR (USA) is finally available for grind masses yearning for outrageous noise! 17 blistering songs clocking in around 25 minutes; highest dose of unadulterated grindcore. The world-famous brothers in grind of the 21st century to unite for a violent feast and celebrate longtime friendship. This is a must have for every grindcore freak!!!
"This music grown in insane brains !!! Polish Antigama walked beetween thrash (played with pauses), death metal, grindcore, psycho-death-jazz and ambient at the end of his part of this short album. Just four amazing, kicking ass tracks, not for everybody. Italian Psychofagist present here explosive mix of psychodelic noizz, death grind jazz and other industrial schizo-sounds based on grindcore, old school punk and hardcore. 100% ill and make sick split – but kicking ass too !!! This is real antimusic, crazy and schizophrenic, but absolutely great for „insane in the mad brain” music maniacs." - pest webzine
Well, they're a thrashy Spanish hardcore band that also knows how to put the catchy stuff alongside the intense explosions. Despite that the band don't include the violin in all tracks and most of the time stick with the "ordinary" instruments, the fact remains that they do use it from time to time and this makes them stand out from the crowd. We've all heard the crusty bands with violins, but not so often the thrashy ones. The dual male and single female vocals are also adding a degree of variety and the three singers complement each other well.
A P N E A is born from the ashes of an old project at the start of 2020 from the desire of playing Post Metal influenced by sludge and English neo-crust in the wake of bands like Fall of Efrafa, Light Bearer, Morrow, Isis, Cult of Luna and Converge.
FFO: Fall of Efrafa, Isis, Cult of Luna, Neurosis, Converge, AMENRA, Old Man Gloom, Light Bearer, Morrow.
The first song of 35 minutes is from AQUILONIAN, the new band of Michael Makela (guitar/vox) and Michael Henry (drums/vox) from BONGZILLA!! We can't remove the 70' influences and the stoners vibes from the guys of Bongzilla and we know it. You can expect something in the vein of SLEEP's Jerusalem. The second part of the cd is another song of 35 minutes by SOLLUBI. This song is heavy, noisy and mean!! They sounds more angry than the first album. Jesse (Rape X) bring all the violence and hate of Rollins with his vocal. At the beginning of this cd, you will be stone on your couch with an overdose of THC but you will probably knock the first person who talk to you at the end!!
This is the fourth album of the Canadians Archagathus. The album is a classic grindcore stuff made in a punk philosophy very straight and easy listening for the fans of this style of music. Double vocals dipped into an endless reverb, guitars with many feedbacks in the endings of the tracks and sometimes during them, with a dirty sound bringing to mind the early 90’s in crusty Sweden, drums in classic speed and mid tempos helping the whole thing to be more messy.
Archives were a band from 2006-2008. Epic post rock/screamo jamz. straight outta Dundee. For fans of From Monument to Masses, Funeral Diner, Daitro, Aussitot Mort
Incredibly tight and brutal, AOBW create a half hour of totally panicked heavy technical metal hardcore and immensely long song titles. Think Mastodon, Keelhaul, Melvins, Craw, Botch and Zeni Geva, and then crank the speed up to near breaking-point
Debut full length. Brutal death/grind from former and current members of MISERY INDEX, GWAR, DYING FETUS and THE BLACK DHALIA MURDER. This thing shreds from front to back in the classic death/grind style supreme. 13 tracks of politically abusive and bleakly literate critique. "The New Primitive" was mastered by Scott Hull at Visceral Sound (AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED, PIG DESTROYER, BRUTAL TRUTH, ANTIGAMA). The outcome is a modern take on the classic death/grind of the 1990s, with influences coming from bands likes REPULSION, NAPALM DEATH, EDGE OF SANITY, BRUTALITY, RIGHTEOUS PIGS, NASUM, LOCK UP, PHOBIA, TERRORIZER, DISRUPT, CARCASS and more.
Gyalazat/Assassiniation Hungary fasthc grind VS Swedish fast and agresive scandi crust split CD. 7 tracks from Gyalazat and 9 tracks from Assassination.
After two critically beloved records on Seventh Rule and Profound Lore ATRIARCH make their Relapse debut with their finest moment yet. Blending death rock, doom, black metal, punk and psychedelic drone/noise ATRIARCH immediately establish themselves as one of the most creative and compelling heavy-music bands of the 21st century. Imagine Bauhaus as covered by Eyehategod, or Sisters of Mercy filtered through Neurosis, and you start to get the picture of what ATRIARCH has achieved on their new record. Once every few years a band comes along that takes the familiar and creates something wholly new. ATRIARCH have done just that with An Unending Pathway.
Aureole of Ash brings folks from Resurrectionists, Svffer, Saligia, etc. and distills all their previous anger into a hideous stew of grinding, death metalled out hardcore. This is downtuned into limp-string territory and bludgeons away as if Acrid and every great late 90's Bremen-core band got together to ruin everyone's lives.
Sabine on vocal duties spits bile and anger all over these 12 tracks with important and topical lyrics as always.
Blistered grinding death fury for troubled times.
3 Ex-DasKrill-members team up with a new bass player and drummer to continue the musical path that they paved with Das Krill. Keyboard infected chaotic Power violence/ grind. More blasts than before…
The third full length of this US-based band led by Mike Hrubovcak known from HYPOXIA, MONSTROSITY, VILE, NADER SADEK, DIVINE RAPTURE, ABRAXAS, RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER, XXX MANIAK. AZURE EMOTE unleashes a sonic masterpiece of musical devastation. The band's tertiary offering is an invigorating acid trip of extreme avant-garde metal that transcends conventional boundaries. Both puzzling and poetic, AZURE EMOTE's elaborate music paints an abstract picture of existential nihilism, while progressing even further then their previous two albums in both musicianship and ingenuity. Step outside the proverbial "box" and listen from a fresh perspective (The Third Perspective), AZURE EMOTE's darkest and most powerful opus to date!
For fans of ARCTURUS, ENSLAVED, EDGE OF SANITY, NEGURA BUNGET, THE PROJECT HATE, NE OBLIVISCARIS, ATHEIST, UNEXPECT, THY CATAFALQUE, THY DISEASE.
