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.
Poisonous Viper Gang are a heavy as hell raw sludgey stoner-tinged punk 5-piece from Adelaide. They're a little hard to nail down style-wise, as they constantly play with a mixture of stoner, sludge, hardcore, rock and punk - but they're damn cool.
They feature a few faces that should be familiar to people hip with the Adelaide underground, including Steve (vocalist of awesome partyfunk group God God Dammit Dammit) on drums and Troy (vocalist of awesome doomstoners Hydromedusa) on guitar.
Their debut full length album is available FOR FUCKING NOTHING over at their bandcamp. You'd be a straight fool not to give it a spin.
Go download it for free, because you're heaps punx.
Melbourne's In Trenches kick a fair amount of ass. They play dark, sludgy hardcore with touch of post-metal and a whole lot of conviction. I've been spinning their new album SOL OBSCURA quite regularly these last few months.
This awesome video clip comes by way of the most sacred Battle Pope; sludged-out sacred swing/grind from Sydney.
Watch it, order a bunch of methhookers, and then download the album for free.
They’ve been described as sounding a little like ‘Little Richard wildly fucking Blood Duster, Captain Cleanoff and Elvis at a hedonist coke orgy’. Now you can experience the sexual wonder of Battle Pope‘s new album The Holy Trinity: Bitches, Dicks and Gonorrhea ABSOLUTELY FREE.
A t-shirt and a limited edition digipak is also available for pre-order if you feel so inclined.
Pious sludged-out swing/grind for all.
