The visuals behind Australian grind: Glenno launches his new site

Posted by Lachlan

Municipal Waste design by Glenno / Glenn SmithIf there is one single visual artist that has been most strongly associated with the Australian grindcore scene above all others,  that would have to be "Glenno" (Glenn Smith).

Glenno has been creating brilliant illustrations for the Australian underground music scene for countless years. I can remember when I joined on to Grindhead Records back in 2005, Glenno was always our go-to man for incredible artwork at an obscenely reasonable cost.

This man has the utmost respect of the Australian underground for good reason, having worked with the likes of Captain Cleanoff, Blood Duster, Agents of Abhorrence, Ebolie, Grindhead Records, 4 Dead, Pisschrist, Volatile, Pure Evil Trio, the Sydney underground zine staple Unbelievably Bad, Obscene Extreme festival, Slaughterfest, East/West Death Grind fest, Monster Sessions, Hard-ons, Meatlocker, Insect Warfare, Electric Wizard, Pod People, Municipal Waste, Willie Nelson, Black Sabbath and countless others.

In any case, old mate has a brand spankin' new website up, so go check it out, admire his work and commission him for all your grind-art needs! Oh, and be sure to like him on Facebook.

Keep up the great work pal! Love from your AusGrind pals.
