Dispolar began as a humble one-man-band a month ago to the day, before finally evolving into a 'live' band (featuring the talented half of Kangaroo Kebab and the percussive half of Michael Crafter) two weeks ago yesterday. While it's all progressing quite well, Dispolar are still in need of a four stringer slinger to complete the band. Rehearsals at Brookvale/Dee Why, so transport is essential. If you're interested, contact Tex - email@example.com or through the band's Facebook page.
FFO: fast hardcore that sometimes likes to pretend that it's powerviolence
New tunes from some classic blasters.
Iron Lung are back with their 3rd LP, titled "White Glove Test".
Buy/stream/whatever from their Bandcamp
And Agents of Abhorrence have given us a taste of their new material.
The 2 new tracks, from the upcoming LP "Relief", feature AoA in their latest form... more single-kick madness from Australia's (and the world's, IMO) premier grind band.
let's all collectively give up our own inferior bands and agree that Agents win.
Suss it out on their Soundcloud
Western Australia produces some very isolated, unique music, a sound coexisting simultaneously with what occurs over here on the east coast, but definitely producing its own brand and sound of violent hardcore. Negative Reinforcements one sided twelve inch bridges between ultra loud/fast powerviolence and the more sludgier stuff coming to light. This bleak 15 minute 7 song all rounder stays true to the violent formula we all know and love although a lot more Australian and very true to its roots. A lot of these songs remind me of a lot of newer and relevant bands floating around at the moment like Suffer, Extortion, Trash Talk and Ceremony, I would not be surprised if these guys looked up to, were members of or smoked bongs with the aforementioned bands.
There is some good solid riffage with an undercurrent of solid feedback tieing all the songs together well, I could have quite easily listened to another 15minute side of doom and gloom PV. Get stoked to live in Australia, where shit like this is injected into our scene year on year.
Out now on Coffin Cut Records
Dearest grindpals, please enjoy this free download of Water Torture - a duo playign seething crust, raging d-beat and furious grindcore out of Buffalo, New York.
Tell the pals how much you love them over at their Facebook page.
I know I'm digging it. Another awesome release by Grindcore Karaoke!
These grindcore t-shirts were made with a love and commitment to grindcore. Primarily inspired by this blog as well as the general boozing that occurs when long distance grindpalz get together, I thought I would post the links to purchase them up here in case you had an itch to also proclaim your love for your grind fiend friends. This is available as a very limited run of raglan/baseball style t-shirts. A split release between the interstate grindpalz The Reverend Jesse Custer (ACT) and Michael Crafter (Syd), who love nothing more than hanging out, drinking beer and blasting grindcore.
Lo-fi Indonesian poverviolence band Ah-!!! have all their past recordings up on their bandcamp for free download. For lovers of drum and bass powerviolence, their stuff reminds me much of Spazz, that first wave PV shit. These dudes hail from Bandung, Indonesia and it's thriving DIY musical culture. They often play with Iron Lung when they tour SE Asia.
