Posted by Lachlan

Obscene Extreme fansThe killer extreme webzine Diabolical Conquest have put up a fairly comprehensive run down and review of this years Obscene Extreme festival over in the Czech Republic. I know I'm pretty obsessed with the festival, so I found this to be pretty interesting stuff.

Bands such as Macabre Minstrels, Hell Show, Poppy Seed Grinder, Ass to Mouth, Keitzer, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Fucksaw, Disturbance Project, Cerebral Turbulency, Malignant Tumour, Flagitious Idiosyncrasy in the Dilapidation, Mesrine, Splitter, Putrid Pile, Cock and Ball Torture, Regurgitate, Agathocles, Namek, Dead, Pisschrist, Impaled Nazarene, Extreme Noise Terror and Macabre were at the festival, and Baz also managed to catch up with Dan Lilker (Brutal Truth) for a quick ad-hoc interview.

To Live A Lie – New Releases

Posted by Matt

New releases from US grind label To Live A Lie.


KAKISTOCRACY play crucial NC mountain crust and have been around for probably a decade. This is their first output after a three year wait following their crushing LP on Profane Existence. NUX VOMICA is ex-Wake Up On Fire and is scathing, ripping, metallic crust punk.


ARCHAGATHUS is the newly prolific Canadian AGATHOCLES-worshiping act, but I promise you they are better. Actual real thought out recordings rather than releasing random practice tapes from the mid 90's (sorry AGx, I have a special place for you in my heart even though I called you out). This stuff rips. SAKATAT from Turkey bring anything ARCH forgot in eight ripping quick grind anthems.

TLAL.23 - MESRINE / P.L.F. - split 7"
This is it. Thats all I can tell you. MESRINE from Canada have been around for more than a decade. Real, pissed, grindcore. Their newest recordings have a touch of death metal, or are at are at least more cleaned without sacrificing the raw mincing destruction. PLF tracks are so good! These tracks are like a cocophonous melange of grindcore and thrash metal. Wow. Texan domination. TLAL exclusive.

CONGA FURY masters have been lost in the mail for three years until finally they have made the journey from Japan to myself in the US safely. Three years of anticipating this release and its finally almost here. Still waiting on SHITSTORM to record, but guess what, its worth it. After their Relapse release of "This Comp Kills Fascists," they are changing their sound for the better. Not sure if they want to me say why but you'll find out. If you haven't heard them before, the band plays mega brutal blastcore that has been known to crumple ceilings. Thats what was worth the three year wait. TLAL exclusive.
