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.

Taking over FBI Radio – Monday 23rd May

Posted by Matt

Lachlan and myself jumped at the opportunity to spin some grindcore in the name of AusGrind late one night on FBI Radio, Sydney's best radio station by miles (for example, album of the week this week is the new Battles album, holy shit so happy). So anyway we set out to inform the general Sydney public of the awesomeness of grindcore, and although my mum still hates it we had a ball.

With Scott Fitzsimons manning the buttons we played a nice cross section of grind with a few other random gems thrown in for good measure and plenty of shameless self promotion. You can now stream the full two hour show below (language warning).

May 28-29: White Male Dumbinance (Newy) in Sydney

Posted by Matt

White Male Dumbinance have come back! Last time I heard these guys playing shows/saw them playing a show was at The Bald Faced Stag (now The Wall) supporting Extortion and Trash Talk. I can't remember the year but to put it in perspective since then Trash Talk was added to a Soundwave bill and Extortion were signed to Resist for a release.

White Male Dumbinance feature ex/members of Captain Cleanoff, Conation, The Dead Walk and play a sort of crossover between grindcore, powerviolence and hardcore, its just heaps fast and awesome.
