The Best of 2008 – Lachlan

Posted by Lachlan

Tim from EbolieThe year is nearly fucking over and I am glad. I am done with this year. Despite that pessimism, there have been a few highlights. Doing this AusGrind thang with Matt has been pretty fun as we slowly build up our jerk base.

We really hit our stride this year with Grindhead Records and released some of my favourite albums to date; Gruesome Stuff Relish, Pathology, Beyond Terror Beyond Grace’s amazing full length, Long Pig and Sound of Detestation. We also put on an amazingly successful Slaughterfest II, with the Canberra show selling out at The Basement. Thank you to everyone who helped out or came to a show.

Ebolie recorded a full length album that I am very proud of. Kill A Celebrity managed to put together a split with my favourite chaotic grinders Krupskaya. I got to see Pig Destroyer, Meshuggah, The Mars Volta, Grave, Against Me!, Graf Orlock and many others, and even got to play with the mighty Insect Warfare - twice. Meanwhile local Sydney bands like The Crooked Fiddle Band, Hospital the Musical, The Bakery, Pirate, Squid, Club Consolador and Squat Club reinvigorated my love for the local music scene.

All I want to do with my life is play music and tour, so lets hope 2009 brings more of that. I’m a total fucking narcissist, so while here are my top albums of the year, expect a more verbose bat-off in the next few days with a description of each.

What albums did you guys really enjoy – inside and out of the grind scene? I’m curious.

Gruesome Stuff Relish – Last Men In Gore re-released

Posted by Lachlan

Gruesome Stuff Relish - Last Men In GoreGrindhead Records is gurgling bloody chunks of excitement to be finally resurrecting the undead, flesh-devouring, maggot-infested ghoul that is Gruesome Stuff Relish's "Last Men In Gore".

This apocalyptic, gore-drenched re-release contains a plethora of savage, gut-munching tracks spanning this Spanish gore monsters inception in 2000 to the end 2003, containing the never released 7" "Last Men Alive", the now classic "Brothers In Gore" split with Brutality Reigns Supreme and five unreleased innard liquefying gems.

Gruesome Stuff Relish combine old school the 1990's death metal of Entombed and Carnage with the splattered gore sound of Impetigo and Necrony; and is craciously transmitted through the use of catch-as-fuck! Filthy distorted guitars, bone-shattering blast beats and thick, punishing brain-stewing bass-lines - all while conceptually paying homage to the classic zombie and cannibal horror films of the 60's, 70's and 80's, best displayed on tracks such as "Walk Among the Living", "Green Inferno" and "Teenage Giallo Grind".

"Last Men In Gore" is absolutely essential in any collection of a self-confessed metal horror freak! Gorehounds rejoice!

Available now from Grindhead Records for $15 AUD or $10 USD.

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:


Fuck I’m Dead News

Posted by Lachlan

Fuck I'm Dead are currently working on brand new material with their new and improved line up. The plan is to start recording a new album during Janurary 2008 and release it soon after. In recent times the group have gone from a drum machine driven three piece to a full fledged five piece - picking up a drummer and a second guitarist in the process. The result should be fucking massive - so keep an eye out for the new and improved gore grind thrash attack from FUCK... I'M DEAD!

And incase anyone missed it - Fuck I'm Dead, The Day Everything Became Nothing and Blood Duster have both been confirmed for Maryland Deathfest 2008! These three giants of Aussie grindcore will head over the burst the eardrums of unworthy Seppos alongside unbelivable groups such as Grave, Anaal Nathrakh, Repulsion, Macare, Deranged, Impaled, Phobia, Disfear, Flesh Parade, Gadget, Ghoul, Coffins, Gruesome Stuff Relish, Engorged, The Arson Project, Behold The Acrtopus, Afgrund, Keitzer and many more!
