Aus Grind was created in an effort to promote Australian Grindcore: an online community of grind fans, bands and record labels willing to promote and support both the growth of the local scene and the prevalence of Australian Grindcore in the international extreme music industry. We hope that this forum and blog will become the central point for all grind communication between record labels, bands, distributors and their fans.
Australia is widely recognised to have one of the strongest grindcore scenes in the world next to Sweden and the Czech Republic. Maybe it’s something about the nature of Australian culture – or just the fact that our nation’s geography is totally unconducive to commercial success – but we manage to pump out some of the world’s premium grindcore groups that could easily outblast the worlds best. Groups such as Fuck… I’m Dead, Undinism, Agents of Abhorrence, Beyond Terror Beyond Grace, The Kill, Captain Cleanoff, Blood Duster, Ebolie, Space Bong and Maximum Perversion just to name a few.
We have created AUS GRIND with the hope of expanding support for Australian Grindcore across Australia and internationally - whether it be powerviolence, crust/grind, gore/grind, spazz/grind, cuntgrind, hydrogrind or however else you want to label it. We are dedicating our time to support the music we love. You can help by joining and contributing.
