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

Behind the scenes of Pig Destroyer’s Book Burner

Posted by Lachlan

Pig Destroyer's Book Burner is coming out 23 October on Relapse Records.

Here's a clip from the studio to tide you over.

Also, sorry for the lack of updates, but I'm busy as fuck. And I'm not sure Mat even exists anymore. Did he ever exist?


A clip of Noisear pretty much destroying everything

Posted by Lachlan

Here's a super-fucking-intense live clip of Noisear live in Berkley, California I just stumbled across.

Apparently these dudes are now on Relapse Records, but before that they were on Melbourne's Blastasfuk Grindcore, run by Roby of The Kill. You can grab a copy of Red Tape Agenda over at the Blastasfuk website. Do it.

Ahh yes, this is what grindcore should sound like!


Lenzig from Cephalic Carnage demonstrates how to use a vapourizer

Posted by Lachlan

The good Lenzig, vocalist of Cephalic Carnage demonstrates proper vapourizer - or Cephalourizer and he likes to call it - usage.

I dare say this technique was called upon many-a-time for the creation of their new album "Misled by Certainty" which is available now through Relapse Records. Check it out.


Cephalic Carnage’s new album ‘Misled by Certainty’

Posted by Lachlan

Cephalic Carnage - Misled by CertaintyI love it when this shit happens. I wake up this morning to find out one of my favourite metal bands Cephalic Carnage are releasing their latest full-length album "Misled by Certainty" via Relapse Records on August 31st. They head over for a Euopean tour in early September, hitting Germany, United Kingdom, Netherlands, France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and the Czech Republic,

The entire album is currently available for streaming on Cephalic Carnage's MySpace page, so check it out while you still can - or just buy it now from the Relapse Records store. Typically they have a range of special deluxe shirt/CD/2LP packages to choose from. I might try and do a review in the next week or so.


Rotten Sound’s new “Napalm” EP available from Relapse, and it’s sure to be boring as fuck

Posted by Lachlan

As you may be aware, Rotten Sound have recently joined the ranks of Relapse Records. Their first release for the label seems to be the unashamedly entitled "Napalm" - an EP featuring three new Rotten Sound originals and three Napalm Death cover songs. But the real clincher here is the bonus DVD which features a full Rotten Sound live set from the Obscene Extreme Festival.

The EP was released yesterday (March 30), so go pick it up at the Relapse store.

Personally I could not give a fuck about this. Rotten Sound seem so stuck in their ways. They are boring and uninspired and seem totally afraid to progress anywhere. I've heard every single riff, blast, breakdown and vocal pattern in a Rotten Sound song before it. Snore. You guys are boring as batshit. Either take a risk and write something different or just fuck off. What is the point just rehashing shit?

Don't get me wrong - I really, really dug Exit when it was released in 2005, but we are now in 2010 and you are boring me shitless. Vocalist Keijo Niinimaa's comments on the 3 new tracks was basically that "they're faster". FUCKING WOW. WHERE DID YOU GUYS GET THE IDEA TO PLAY FASTER?!??!?! YOU ARE SoOoOoOo fucking innovative!!!! I CAN BARELY KEEP UP!!!!!!!!!!! They've got 1 cover and 1 new original up on their MySpace if you're interested.

Has anyone heard any GOOD AND NON-GENERIC grind lately?? If so, please fill me in, because this shit is getting old.
