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

Shitloads of grind news from Circle of Dead Children, Captain Cleanoff, Kill The Client, Beyond Terror Beyond Grace and loads more

Posted by Lachlan

Things happen. It's a scientific fact. Here are a collection of things that have allegedly happened (to be proven or disproven at a future point of time).

  • Circle of Dead Children recorded their new full-length Psalm of the Grand Destroyer back in November 2008. Vocals were finally laid down last week; now the recording is to be mastered by Scott Hull, then released by Willowip Records.
  • Beyond Terror Beyond Grace are finishing up recording vocals with Tim Carr at Studio 301 next week. Artwork is being worked on by someone called Rainsong, who has worked on designs for Nevermore, Jeff Loomis, All Shall Perish, Whitechapel, Aborted, Strapping Young Lad and The End. Not cheap I'm guessing. Apparently we can expect the album title and perhaps a tracklisting to soon follow.
  • 4 Dead have a new album coming up. FUCK YES! They record late October it would seem.
  • Portal have a new track online for download through Profound Lore Records. Download it.
  • Frank Rizzo are finally back in action with a new live track and rough demo track up on their MySpace.

Grind and/or die.

Live clips from Maryland Death Fest 2008 (MDF VI)

Posted by Lachlan

This years Maryland Death Fest saw some of Australias best - Fuck I'm Dead, The Day Everything Became Nothing and Blood Duster - take on some of the biggest names in the international extreme music community - grounds like Anaal Nathrakh, Grave, Disfear, Impaled, Macabre, Dying Fetus and Circle of Dead Children to name but a few.

I thought it would therefore be fitting to do a post of some of the I've rounded up in ten minutes before this post goes live - because realistically I have nothing else to write about today and I feel like shit. I hate mondays. Good to see Jay doing us proud with Aussie Aussie Aussie chants. Classic.

Fuck I'm Dead - Gore Grind Thrash Attack

Fuck I'm Dead - Waft of Stench

Blood Duster - Umm... I'm not sure but Tony humps some dude in the face...

Macabre - You're Dying To Be With Me

Circle of Dead Children - ?

Anaal Nathrakh - Submission Is For The Weak

Ghoul - Gutbucket Blues

Afgrund - Most of their set

Relapse to reissue first four Blood Duster albums

Posted by Lachlan

Tony - Blood Duster - Australia DayWell here's some cool news; Relapse Records has decided to release the first four Blood Duster albums: Fisting the Dead, Yeest, Str8outtanorthcote (my favourite) and Cunt.

It looks as though Fisting The Dead and Yeest will be re-released in one package. All three reissues have been totally remastered and feature new artwork and bonus material. The release date for the reissues is May 5 internationally (or April 29 in the U.S.).

These reissues come just before Blood Duster are set to desecrate the U.S. for the first time ever (with Dave Hayley of Psycroptic on drums mind you); playing this years Maryland Deathfest alongside fellow Aussie's The Day Everything Became Nothing and Fuck... I'm Dead. Just the thought of those three bands absolutely fucking flattening the U.S. makes me smile - can you imagine the poor bastards who might have heard Fuck I'm Dead's split with Engorged just explode when they hear them as a 5 piece?!

The line up of this years Maryland Deathfest includes the likes of Repulsion, Nuclear Assault, Grave, Dying Fetus, Disfear, Ghoul, Coffins, Impaled, Gruesome Stuff Relish (who have a new album coming up on Grindhead Records!), Engorged, Anaal Nathrakh, Macabre, Dead, Phobia, Gadget, Flesh Parade, Afgrund, Behold the Arctopus, Circle of Dead Children, Keitzer and loads more. I'd go on, but to be honest I'm so insanely jealous I'd rather just put it from my mind.

Blood Duster turn emo

I'll do the predictable thing and put up a track of Drink, Fight, Fuck even though it's one of my least favourite Duster songs:


Circle of Dead Children Quote

Posted by Lachlan

Circle of Dead Children vocalist Joe HorvathHere's a cool quote I found from the Circle of Dead Children vocalist Joe Horvath; not only are they a fucking amazing grind band - but the singer mirrors my views to an extent. Also, this is a band that has been totally raped by setbacks in the last few years after putting out two amazing albums - so show them some support.

We all tend to hate playing on the stages and to be honest, I lose a ton of emotion up there. It just feels stupid being way above everyone else. We like to play on the floor, right down there with the fans.

I've lost a ton of blood at shows, bitten people, got punched, dry-humped people, sat on people, broke a ton of mics, etc. I think shows shouldn't be such a pretty nice place and feeling.

I remember seeing bands when I was very young and being fucking scared shitless at times that I wasn't going to make it out alive. That's what I like... that's what I would like to see come back. It's good when the crowd has a sense of awareness and knows that they have to stay on their toes. It's not about actually intentionally hurting anybody, but giving off the feeling of being unsure of what is coming next.

People are paying to see you, so I think that you people should leave with some memories. - Joe Horvath (vocalist of Circle of Dead Children)
