Newly signed band The Drip give us 6 rapid fire songs of flaming riffs, blasts and gnarly vocal work. Behold! Your new favorite grindcore band! The Drip!

meek is murderComing straight from the Brooklyn is the experimental punk hardcore angry band called Meek is Murder. These guys are pretty well known throughout the community with their grind and metal moments. The guitars are loud, the vocals are more than angry, the bass is crunchy and powerful and the drumming is hectic and precise. These butchers know how to slice it just right as Everything Is Awesome Nothing Matters is a heavy hitting album.

Album Review: SpermBloodShit – The Tourette’s Syndrome

63912_10151345418195749_1357090680_n

Here’s one for you sick Grindcore fans out there.  Hailing from Italy  SpermBloodShit are bringing some  nasty grinds to you from Coyote Records.  Imagine if Napalm Death and Cephalic Carnage had a crack baby, that baby would be SpermBloodShit.  The Tourette’s Syndrome has 15 disgusting tracks for you to defile your ears with, which is quite a number in my opinion.  These guys have created some relentlessly awesome music and I definitely look forward to their future releases.

Concert Review! CATTLE DECAPITATION

 

cattle decapitation 2012

Yes, the grind gods from San Diegore came back to the Midwest and killed a couple of crowds on their way to the East Coast to begin their real tour with Six Feet Under. Lucky for us, Cattle Decapitation stopped by Kansas City on one of these nights and chose to be direct support for Gwar at The Beaumont Club. One of my favorite bands playing at one of my favorite venues, a deadly combination. Their set was shorter than ever since they were added on the bill late. However, this did not stop them from absolutely blowing our heads off within only 30 minutes. They came, they conquered and they killed it.
