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.

Blasterpieces represent!

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, a mighty contingent from Victoria, Queensland is represented and even a few bois from the A.C.T are coming around to make some noise.

Sydney's darlings, Ether Rag, are also launching their highly anticipated 7" so make sure you save a handful of post-beer coins to exchange for that sexy vinyl.  Grindhead Records will, of course, also have their distro with a fine selection of extreme music from around the world with maybe even a few choices being available for under $5!

I'm also playing, this time I'm filling the bass and vocals for those handsome Backpacker boys.  That should be interesting... hopefully.

Agents Of Abhorrence, Extortion, Internal Rot and Aeroflot – Wednesday 22nd Feb at Bendigo Hotel

Posted by Matt

Hooray for school night grindcore, feature members of Agents of Abhorrence doing a hectic grind.

This will likely be Agents Of Abhorrence's last show before the US shows mid year and Extortion, Internal Rot and Aeroflot are also as equally as grind and will grind as hard as an 18year old at schoolies grooving to a Jay-Z song.

Straight out of the Sound Park and straight onto the stage, like true heroes of Australian grind. With most members doing a grind more than once lets hope they can keep up the relentless blasting all night loong. Featuring members of the Melbourne grindcore scene.

Wednesday 22nd February
Bendigo Hotel
125 Johnston Street, Collingwood, vi 3066

Agents of Abhorrence
Extortion (featuring members of Extortion)

DOWNLOAD: Awesome Aussie grind/punk mixtape from Skullfucked CVLT Nation

Posted by Lachlan

Skullfucked CVLT Nation MixtapeSome bloke called Skullfucked created some mix tape called CVLT Nation Mixtape... and he's done a pretty good job!

The mix itself has a bit of grindcore, hardcore, noisecore, fastcore, punk rock (etc), and by the bands included it would seem like old mate certainly has a bit of taste, because this mixtape includes the likes of  4 Dead, Suffer, Deathcage, White Male Dumbinance, Internal Rot, Black Bong, IDYLLS, Taipan and whole lot more!

Press release, tracklisting and download link to follow.

Australian punk is in a reasonably healthy state at the moment and I suppose the proof is in the following collection of music. I wouldn’t say that this is a definitive example of every band in this country currently, but I like to believe that this is a reasonably accurate example of the greater scenes diversity and strength. Though not every band I wanted involved is included here (some didn’t get back to me, some were just unreachable, and some I’ve purposely omitted), I did go to the trouble to compile a pretty eclectic and mixed bill. On offer here there’s at least one band from every major capital, as well as many of the smaller scenes in between. Australian hardcore is a very mixed pot by nature; on this mix tape we’ve got everything from straight up hardcore and shitty punk, right through to noisecore, metallic hardcore, to grindcore, doom and heaps in between. I’m happy with the outcome, and I hope this does well to explain what we’re about down here. We’re a little different.

Sydney Fri 16th September: DUDMAN (Japan) + INTERNAL ROT (Vic) + DOUBLED OVER (Vic)

Posted by Matt

Dudman, Internal Rot at Black Wire RecordsThis Friday Japanese band Dudman\ is playing a single show in Sydney.

There is not much on the internet to explain this band in the internet, but from supports I am going to assume they play some sort of extreme music, possibly grindcore or hardcore/grind/fastish.

Also to add to the excitement of this show is the rare Sydney appearance by Melbourne band Internal Rot and Doubled Over, straight from their US tour with The Kill. Although the poster states Video Nasty it is actually the grind heroes Ether Rag that are playing this show, who are amazing every time. And Burning Servant rounding off the bill to ensure this show shouldn't be missed by any grind fan out there.

Friday 16th September // 7pm // $10 //
DUDMAN (Japan) + INTERNAL ROT (Melb) + DOUBLED OVER (Melb) + ETHER RAG + BURNING SERVANT
