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

New music for your facehead, starring The Kill, The Guantanamo Bay City Rollers, Helm, Phobia, Altars and more

Posted by Lachlan

THE KILL: Melbourne's The Kill could be one of the most intense grindcore bands on earth (alongside the likes of Gridlink, Agents of Abhorrence, Discordance Axis, early Pig Destroyer and the like). They're about to release a live album they did for PBS Radio on No Escape Records. You can listen to two tracks Needs More Napalm and Fuck the Olympics on their MySpace page.

THE GUANTANAMO BAY CITY ROLLERS: There is a cool live clip up from the awesome South Australian grinding stoner/hardcore punk rock band The Guantanamo Bay City Rollers. It's one of those funky Facebook video things, but hopefully you can see it here (you may need to be logged in).

AGENTS OF ABHORRENCE / ROSKOPP: The awesome Agents of Abhorrence have teamed up with fellow Australian grinders Roskopp to release a split 7" from Crucificados, apparently.

HELM: Queensland's Helm have 4 of 5 new tracks off their upcoming album Volume 2... The Winter March - which is quite a lot when you consider their songs are all in the vicinity of 7+ minutes. Their new album is due out early 2010, and their debut album Keehaul... Volume 1 has been in almost constant rotation in my CD player since I purchased it. It is beyond highly recommend for fans of Cult of Luna, Isis and the like.

ALTARS: South Australian death metal band Altars have a new song up, which will form part of their split with Tzun Tzu. I'm not a fan of too many death metal bands these days, but these guys seem to have the whole Morbid Angel vibe going with an evil-as-fuck atmosphere to accompany it. Sounds promising.

GENE POOL SHARKS: Sydney thrashing 90s hardcore punkers Gene Pool Sharks have two demo tracks up.

EYETOFUK: LSD-soaked rocking cyber-grind whack Lithuanian cunts Eyetofuk are letting you download their Grindhead Records split with Putrid Whore for free.

PIRATE: Sydney prog wizards Pirate have some new songs off their latest release. I will go ahead and say these guys shit all over anything The Mars Volta could have hoped to achieve in the last few years.

KYU: ky├╝ are an extremely promising new Sydney duo who you should all listen to.

PHOBIA: Orange County grinders Phobia have a new video clip up on their MySpace page for their track Rise Up.

- In other more important news, some vapid chick wants me to 'comment her truth box' as she is 'is bored and wants to know secrets'. I have something for her truth box right here.


DOWNLOAD: Eyetofuk / Putrid Whore – Drufuked and Pornified

Posted by Lachlan

Grindhead Records released the incredible split CD between the bizarre Lithuanian acid-soaked cyber-porno-gore aliens Eyetofuk and the brutal perverts of Italy's Putrid Whore around 2 years ago today - and to celebrate, Eyetofuk have arranged a free high quality download of the split CD so you can see what all the fuss is about.

Honestly, this has to be one of my favourite Grindhead Records' releases. Eyetofuk play a very twisted and heavily psychedelic-influenced brand of dance-able, rockin' cyber-porno-gore. Dont dismiss this band as some kind of generic one man cyber-gore project - they go far beyond that, taking influences from bands like Gigantic Brain, LDOH, Rompeprop as well as dance and electronica and acid-culture essentials like Fear and Loathing to create something truly unique within the genre (certainly no easy task).

This is a killer twisted hallucinogen-induced alien nightmare. Permit Eyetofuk to melt your mind with their LCD-soaked creation of porno-electro cyber gore/grind! Enjoy. Oh and if you want to be extra nice, you can actually legitimately purchase this CD for $10 USD (free postage worldwide) here from Grindhead Records. We appreciate your support.

DOWNLOAD: Gigantic Brain – Betelgeuse EP / I Swallow 16 Red Planets

Posted by Lachlan

I've already ranted about my love of Gigantic Brain a few times on this blog; namely their fucking incredible sci-fi electro cyber/grind mind-rape The Invasion Discography that came out on Razorback Records too long ago (and needs a fucking reissue!) and their far more atmospheric, measured sci-fi soundtrack-esque recent full length World (review here).

Well they just scored a few more points with me - for offering up a whole heap of music for free download in their MySpace blog.

Now you can download the new 6 track Betelgeuse EP and 25 tracks from something called I Swallow 16 Red Planets. I haven't had a chance to have a listen as of yet; but considering the quality of World I'm definitely looking forward to it. I can't totally predict the direction of these two recordings, which is a very good thing.

Here is a direct link to download the albums from Megaupload.

Obey the brain! Oh, and if you're a fan of Gigantic Brain, be sure to check out Eyetofuk - who are fucking awesome acid-drenched sci-fi cyber-grind fucked up shit on Grindhead Records.
