Just released through Fat Ass Records is a great grindcore split featuring the Australian terrors of single pedal metal The Kill and New York's The Communion who on this release are having a crack at some sludge styled grindcore.
According to my source, The Kill's side of the split contains 5 tracks of extremely fast grind, and includes a cover of the Napalm Death song 'Dead'. The Communion's side has 2 tracks of sludgey grindcore that combines elements of EyeHateGod, Buzzoven, Assuck & Phobia.
A good mix, with a little of something for everybody.
You can purchase it now through Fat Ass Records for 8 Euros / $10 with postage worldwide.
Agitator Records has recently released Mother Eel's Loathes Dicks.
Presently there is no functional way to capture and distribute the complete, intense and disturbing experience of Mother Eel live... this is something the band thinks is a pleasingly, unpleasant representation.
Featuring 12 crushing works over 15 ear tearing tracks in 38 minutes, pieced together from three or so recordings made live in the venue, at the Lewisham Hotel, Sydney, 2011. Each recording comes with its own balance based on the location of the recording device.
Loathes Dicks boasts:
- vocals from Adrian Johnstone, the departed drummer who returned to do some vocals
- full booklet artwork with Mother Eel logo by ashcroft (dillonashcroft.com), ruined by semenstorm, notes by semenstorm, kenna, & cunningham
- a solid sense of loathing and disgust.
The track listing includes songs such as Sucking To Gain (Like Leeches), Tomarchyoo, Another Face For Beating & The Erection Of Pain
It is intended that this record be played loud. Experiencing the record at the 'minimum listening volume' will require you to significantly raise your voice if you were to try to conduct a conversation whilst listening. The ideal listening can be achieved at a volume you can feel, or on headphones, loud, curled up at the bottom of an inky black, damp & crawling, pit. with your eyes wide open.
Agitator Records also offers live bootlegs from bands like Ivan & The Backpackers, Dark Horse and Black Jesus as well as numerous other releases, including Mother Eel's back catalog. All for free, all to agitate.

Well, those kind chaps over at No Escape Records have once more released an absolutely essential Australian grindcore classic. I'm not kidding when I say that you NEED to own this to qualify as a fully formed human being. This is possibly one of the most insanely paced pieces of thrashing grindcore violence on earth; executed flawlessly.
This 'Hate Sessions' release features their awesome and long out-of-print MCD 'Soundtrack To Your Violence' which featured Jay from Fuck I'm Dead's insane single-pedal blast beats and back-up vocals (seriously, watching him play is down right scary), Roby from Blastasfuk shredding riffs and Tony from Blood Duster and The Day Everything Became Nothing screaming his lungs out like never before. Hate Sessions also has their cult-as-hell demo that was originally released as a cassette (ooh how retro).
Here's the No Escape blurb:
Finally back from the dead after almost 5 years of silence, they have returned… Australia’s most blast as fuck band ever, the lynchpins of the infamous Melbourne Grind Syndicate have reformed. That band is, of course, The Kill! The Hate Sessions compiles their mindblowing MCD, The Soundtrack To Your Violence, which was released in 2003 by No Escape and ran out of print soon after and the legendary demo which was originally released on cassette also through No Escape and we are thrilled to have the honour of making their legacy of insane racket available once again!
The Kill pushed grindcore to such extreme heights that even 5 years later no one has been able to come close to the benchmark they set. Utterly frenzied and inimitable riffing, relentless single kick blasting ferocity and psychotically abusive vocals combined to create the most unique and extreme sonic violence ever laid down by just guitar, drums and vocals! You cannot protect yourself from what they have planned next, but you can familiarise yourself with their past atrocities so you can at least be prepared when you meet your untimely end.
There will be more. That’s not a promise. That’s a threat.
