Grinded Into Sludge, the newly established Zine based in Spain, dedicated to everything close to Grindcore and Sludge has just come out.
Hey! This is an Australian Grindcore blog, why should I care? Because they interview Australian bands dammit! Are you so self-centred on your grindr account that nothing makes sense to you anymore?
The fanzine is pro-printed and includes 52 pages written in English, on which you'll find interviews with P.L.F., Sakatat, thedowngoing, Massgrav, Grime, Primitive Man, Roskopp, Dead Instrument, Gets Worse and Lycanthrophy as well as columns, reviews and more.
It's here! Christmas for those into extreme underground local talent has arrived. Bubsy, who plays Santa in this metaphor, has done it again, or maybe he's gone done better than last year! What a line-up!!
Showcasing a bunch of fools with instruments from a wide variety of towns and villages, this year's East West has bands from South Australia, a mighty contingent from Victoria, Queensland is represented and even a few bois from the A.C.T are coming around to make some noise.
Sydney's darlings, Ether Rag, are also launching their highly anticipated 7" so make sure you save a handful of post-beer coins to exchange for that sexy vinyl. Grindhead Records will, of course, also have their distro with a fine selection of extreme music from around the world with maybe even a few choices being available for under $5!
I'm also playing, this time I'm filling the bass and vocals for those handsome Backpacker boys. That should be interesting... hopefully.
Keep up to date with set times and other announcements by going to the facebook event page.
East West Deathgrind Fest 6
If there's something you'd like to buy in person, maybe have a trawl through the Grindhead e-store and send us an email.
The rotten-hearted men of Grindhead Records sacrificed themselves so that you might hear this chillingly morbid yet cacophanously brutal and relentlessly aggressive album of scrap metal by Black Jesus.
"Everything Black... Everything Dead" will mark a sign on thousands of maniacs by grinding out evil powerchords that move blazingly fast as the drums blast away into one's brain. The album fuses something already angst-driven like hardcore punk and thrash metal with all the brilliance of the left hand path followers of death metal.
For fans of Autopsy, Brutal Truth, Entombed, Morbid Angel, Possessed, Repulsion, Terrorizer
Deluxe Double Sided Embossed Digipak limited to 500 copies!

Hailgun, after their tour of Europe, have hit the bunker to start recording some new material. What does this mean to you?
It means no live shows for a bit.
It means you'll assume the foetal position and face your mummy issues.
It means you can download their album for free!!
Go to their bandcamp and name your price.
While you're at it, you could probably get all their earlier stuff too. Be like a real fan!
Start off by introducing yourselves: give us a brief history of the band, what's your history, how you all met, what bands influenced you etc?
Well, one night me and the singer (fryz) were doing a couple of hot knifes in our bath, and we were listening to the Charles Bronson discog and we got inspired to start a pv band! So I called cheese and hank dog and we recorded the demo in our lounge room the next week.
We learnt that having a girl in the band sux! Every show gets cancelled due to a hens night or baby shower.
The cranka is pretty fun! You can get a yiros from down the road and pay your respects to the Ellen Degeneres statue out the front.
We've only played 3 shows, on the second show our friend dingo moshed and threw a longy at Hannahs bass and it exploded in her face....That was bad ass!
What are you looking forward to as a band in the future?
Hope fully we can keep releasing 7s and splits with bands we like, and throw a few tours in the mix.
Stronghold, craterface, infection, beaver, destined to die, Rock Hudson and Ante Up.
It sucks when you get off stage and get flocked by 20 crust chicks then get rejected because you had a shower that week.
We've got a 7 coming out on psychocontrol and a split with cancer patient from LA. And fry-z just got curtains set up in his van.
