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

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.

Beyond Terror Beyond Grace support Grave Thursday

Posted by Lachlan

Blue Mountains grindcore band Beyond Terror Beyond Grace support the almighty Grave this Thursday night at The Gaelic Club (or The Gaelic Theatre as they like to refer themselves as now). Sydney death metallers Shackles are also supporting. Terrorust have pulled out of the gig and the national support slot with rumours circling that the band has disbanded.

Grave are one of the few death metal bands I can bring my disillusioned, cynical self to respect these days. These guys absolutely crushing old school Swedish death metal. If they are half as good as Dismember were a few years back then this gig will be well worth your while to head down.

Beyond Terror Beyond Grace - 8:30pm
Shackles - 9:30pm
Grave - 10:45pm

Beyond Terror Beyond Grace - Answers and Control

Grave - Soulless

GRAVE (SWE) Australian Tour!

Posted by Lachlan

GRAVEThe crushing Swedish death metal band GRAVE are touring Australia! Having originally formed in 1986-1988, GRAVE are definitely one of the originals in the European death metal scene along with the likes of Dismember and Entombed - and their 1991 debut full length Into the Grave is an absolute classic. The national supports for the tour are Shackles and Terrorust - man doesn't it seem like Terrorust are supporting every fucking band nowdays? I must say I'm quite a fan of their new full length album Dominion VIII; it's a quality piece of crushing, mid-paced death metal - and one of the few death metal albums I have actually enjoyed in quite some time. Expect a fucking enormous live sound and some absolutely steam-rolling grooves. If you're an old school death metal fan and you're not into this... I dont know what to say.

Dec. 04 - Gaelic Theatre – Sydney, AUS
Dec. 05 - The Globe Theatre - Brisbane, AUS
Dec. 07 - Corner Hotel - Melbourne, AUS
Dec. 08 - Fowlers Live - Adelaide, AUS
Dec. 10 - The Kings Arms – Auckland, NZ
