Posted by mothereel

Every Year Death Grinds!

Another year, 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, the mightiest contribution from Victoria, Tasmania is showing up and even a few bois from the A.C.T are coming around to make some noise.

Split over 2 days/nights, you'll have to plan ahead for this one.  Buying entry to both shows gets you a healthy discount.

Keep up to date with set times and other announcements by going to the facebook event page.

Captain Cleanoff has a new Split!

Posted by mothereel

Those chaps at Fat Ass Records have gone and done it again.  They've put out another 7" and this one is a corker!!

 

Two bands, one disc, a lesson in splits.

Two bands, one disc, a lesson in splits.

 

If you have ever read this blog then Captain Cleanoff don't really need to be explained to you.  Their portion of the release contains 2 new songs and a cover of the Righteous Pigs.  It looks to me like their artwork is done by Glenno, you love it.

Flip the disc to side 'A' and you get War Of The Second Dragon (WotsD).  WotsD is a new band formed by Shane Embury from Napalm Death with dudes  John Cooke, David Flower, and Duncan Wilkins.  5 minutes, no slow moments here, pure grindcore blast.

Prepare for punishment!!!

Cock and Ball Torture Australian tour January 2013!

Posted by Lachlan

Germany's goregrind legends Cock and Ball TortureAbsolutely huge news for gore/grind fiends. German gore legends Cock and Ball Torture are heading down under in January 2013!

For that you can thank  Southern Extremeties Productions in association with Grindhead Records and Shananigans Entertainment.

Here's the press release:

A progenitor of pitch-shifted, porn influenced goregrind, and one of the most influential groups within the style, Germany's Cock and Ball Torture make their first ever trip "Down Under" at the very start of 2013.

After 3 full lengths and several EPs and splits, the group is known and loved worldwide for their catchy, grooving, down-tuned, rancid horegrind, and have a strong and supportive worldwide fan base on the back of their impressive discography and excellent live performances.

After 15 years together, and countless successful shows and tours, the lurid lads decided it was finally time to make a trip to the "Land Down Under", and give Australia a taste of the aural filth they've been dishing up for 1 and a 1/2 decades.

So this is it, the tour so many have wanted to see: Cock and Ball Torture - Bulldozing Australia 2013.
