AusGrind: Australian underground grindcore, punk, doom and DIY culture.

Stray Venom by Grudge!

Posted by mothereel

Grudge! are launching their album this Saturday.  To prepare you for all the pit sing-a-longs or whatever it is you J-Pop fans do these days, they have released a single through their bandcamp page.

Go judge Grudge!

Grudgefest is 10 bands for free.  That's right!  Free!  Don't stay at home watching youtube videos of the event, go and participate, it'll cost you much the same plus you can then go online and say how you were there.  That's scene points right there!

Go and listen, download, impress your friends
I presume that the album will present itself through that link too.



Daemon Foetal Harvest to launch album at East West Death Fest!

Posted by mothereel

So Beast!

Wollongong Death Metal act Daemon Foetal Harvest have smashed out an amazing album of riffage.  Competing with Broozer and Tanned Christ, it's a contender for my Album of the Year.  We'll see what sticks in my head most when I'm compiling that list and waiting for your opinions to be sprayed.

There's no real point in me waffling on longer than I have.  You can listen to the band by going to a gig or go to their bandcamp to hear their recorded effort.  I won't make up your mind for you, not this time (but I will judge your decision accordingly).

See DFH at East West Death Fest 7 or go to their facebook for more information on their other shows.
You can purchase the album from the band's bandcamp


Grindhead Records Presents: East West Deathgrind Fest 6!!

Posted by mothereel

Blasterpieces represent!

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.

Wretch want you to be a part of their next CD

Posted by mothereel


Wretch, all sun glasses, no smiles

Give them your money!


Those Canberran's are looking to release a new album.   They want to try something new.  It would be nice if you, and your pals, could contribute some dollars towards their process.  It can immortalise you, not only to the band, but you could even get your name in the Thank You section, which you could show all those kids who still continue to make fun of you, your taste in music and your lack of a life.  Go here now to donate. 
Read what Wretch had to say:

For as low as $10 you can pre-purchase a digital download of the album (with digital artwork and all the trimmings); $20 gets you a CD, $35 is a (new design) t-shirt and CD; and $60 and over wins you immortality through inclusion in the thanks list in the album art.

All you need is an email address. You can pay with PayPal or direct debit. Any help will be greatly appreciated, and you can guarantee that we'll remember your help and do what we can to support your next project and keep the live music scene interesting.


Wretch 'Because You're Worthless' Album Artwork
Wretch is four-piece grind/death/thrash/METAL!!! band based in Canberra. Since forming in 2011, Wretch has gone from strength to strength. Their live assault has been refined by frequent performances, including a handful of international supports, a number of successful festivals and playing with damn near every metal, hardcore and punk band in the country.

The Senseless Violence EP ( was self-released in early 2012 and received positive critical reception.

In the same DIY spirit, they’re recording their full-length album, Because You’re Worthless, for self-release in April and are inviting you to help support the making of this new album. Think of it as being like an extreme metal arts patron, supporting a new world where the record companies and shitty middlemen have all fucked off home and the music lovers have taken over.

Over the hills and through the woods, starting from South Australia, booze fueled grinders, Guantanamo Bay City Rollers return to Sydney for at least 3 days of grind.  They bring fellow South Australians Peter Brock and Victoria's Counter Attack.

JPC + BP split launch - venue has changed to The Roxbury

Jesus Christ Posse and Battle Pope team up to launch their split 12" LP.  Counter Attack sit this one out, or play somewhere else (I've not been told).  Ignoring the bands mentioned on the flyer the current night looks like this: Jesus Christ Posse, Battle Pope, Guantanamo Bay City Rollers, Killsong, Peter Brock. The show has been moved from The Lansdowne, due to temporary combustion issues, you can now join in the action at The Roxbury in Glebe.  It starts at 7:30pm.
