THE KILL: Melbourne's The Kill could be one of the most intense grindcore bands on earth (alongside the likes of Gridlink, Agents of Abhorrence, Discordance Axis, early Pig Destroyer and the like). They're about to release a live album they did for PBS Radio on No Escape Records. You can listen to two tracks Needs More Napalm and Fuck the Olympics on their MySpace page.
THE GUANTANAMO BAY CITY ROLLERS: There is a cool live clip up from the awesome South Australian grinding stoner/hardcore punk rock band The Guantanamo Bay City Rollers. It's one of those funky Facebook video things, but hopefully you can see it here (you may need to be logged in).
AGENTS OF ABHORRENCE / ROSKOPP: The awesome Agents of Abhorrence have teamed up with fellow Australian grinders Roskopp to release a split 7" from Crucificados, apparently.
HELM: Queensland's Helm have 4 of 5 new tracks off their upcoming album Volume 2... The Winter March - which is quite a lot when you consider their songs are all in the vicinity of 7+ minutes. Their new album is due out early 2010, and their debut album Keehaul... Volume 1 has been in almost constant rotation in my CD player since I purchased it. It is beyond highly recommend for fans of Cult of Luna, Isis and the like.
ALTARS: South Australian death metal band Altars have a new song up, which will form part of their split with Tzun Tzu. I'm not a fan of too many death metal bands these days, but these guys seem to have the whole Morbid Angel vibe going with an evil-as-fuck atmosphere to accompany it. Sounds promising.
GENE POOL SHARKS: Sydney thrashing 90s hardcore punkers Gene Pool Sharks have two demo tracks up.
EYETOFUK: LSD-soaked rocking cyber-grind whack Lithuanian cunts Eyetofuk are letting you download their Grindhead Records split with Putrid Whore for free.
PIRATE: Sydney prog wizards Pirate have some new songs off their latest release. I will go ahead and say these guys shit all over anything The Mars Volta could have hoped to achieve in the last few years.
KYU: kyü are an extremely promising new Sydney duo who you should all listen to.
PHOBIA: Orange County grinders Phobia have a new video clip up on their MySpace page for their track Rise Up.
- In other more important news, some vapid chick wants me to 'comment her truth box' as she is 'is bored and wants to know secrets'. I have something for her truth box right here.
