Immutable Grindcore fury from the US. Landfill is Will Olter from Methlab Explosion, Hot Babes and a few other bands and projects, with Andy of Gonzo favourites Captain Three Leg on Vocal duties for this release only (I belive Landfill change vocalist from release to release). They kick out 10 tracks of raging Grindcore full of hate and piss, thrashing Punk 3 chord Guitar destruction, crusty influence and just a shed load of total fucking rage. Fast and irate. Really genuinely angry sounding shit; a trait common through Will’s various projects. Andy’s angry dad Vocal tops this one off nicely, replete with his usual grump lyrical stylings. Excellent stuff. Suppression are legends and do their thing here with the usual gusto and aplomb; freak sauce Grindcore/Power Violence implosion, weirdo noise(core) atrocities committed on the unsuspecting. Rattling Bass, insane Drumming and Vocal regressions into the reptilian. Blown out recording quality, lots of echo effects, uniquely strange and angry as only Suppression sound. Grab a tape if you can! Indispensable.

Noisy Crust from Seattle, featuring members of the now defunct and fucking almighty Acid Feast, Tripping Corpse, Hideous Creep and others. D Beats, huge Crusty Guitar tones, lots of mid paced stomping, blast beat parts and wasteland mutant Vocal grunt. The kind of Deathly Crust that tickles my pickle. Loud, blown out and not entirely melodic, noisy and deadly. Boneheaded Crustcore for post-apocalyptic skull collectors; simplistic in the best possible way, no frills, just crusty CRUSH! Cool demo, this one.
Pulverising one-man Goregrind from Australia. Mortician worshipping, sloppy overdriven Goregrind for the devoted. Super low grunted death vocal without pitchshifters (or at least very little), hammering unwieldy Drum Machine blast parts and fast Gore grooves, with a really very downtuned and heavy Guitar/Bass sound, and super heavy slow parts reminiscent the aforementioned New York legends. Gnarled, horrible, Deathly Goregrind of the reprobate, ignorant and punk kind. Rawhead has more than one member these days – their upcoming full length ‘Spineless Pigs’ will be released on Cadaveric Dissolution records, and can be sampled here. Hideous!
Sweaty Deathgrind from Ohio. Roid-retarded stomping ping snare blast beats, super low deadlift-grunt vocal and Death Metal fat Guitar sound. Burly and foul-tempered, heavy low tuned Death Metal/Grindcore idiocy, with a hint of the Gore thrown into the protein Gains ‘shake. Fattened grooves, lots of tempo variations and really tightly executed songs. Features members of Pizza Hi-Five, and will appeal to fans of theirs, and Powercup, Mortician and Hemdale. Tantalisingly short and excellent demo. Buy a tape, nerd.
Furiously intense Deathgrind from Australia; horrendous bogan Death Metal/Grindcore ‘songs’ just smashing your face over and over, one after the other, in an utterly hostile and aggro fashion. There’s an abundance of mad stupid stomping, Bass rumbling overkill death metal riffs over rough hewn swarming blast beats, downward-spiral pit fuel riffs for the subtlety-impaired, tempo variations with sort-of breakdown parts swimming in grease and gore and car-crash vocal death. Deathgrind works for me when it’s like this, the pairing of ignorant death riffs over fast blast parts, no noodly riffs or much nuance, just Deathly, Grinding madness. Excruciating Terror, Repulsion and old Carcass are signposts to enjoyment. Grab a shirt or a tape! Essential.
Rank Goregrind from Taiwan. Bubbling gooey vocal spew, overdriven crusty Guitars and fevered samples nicely arranged into punk part/blast part songs. Devotionally played, not all that original and yet so satisfying. Extra punky and blasting, with little to find in terms of overt Death Metal influence, and with that crusted-over Guitar sound that’s just right. Sizzling, toxic Gore for fans of Metastasis, Maggut or Gangrene Discharge. Gruesome shit – a promising demo, this one.
Ringdahl returns… yet another indispensable Punker-than-punk Gore tape from Canada. Expect Guitar/Bass carbonization oozing rendered fats, ulcerated mutant teeth-gnashing vocal carnage and overdriven rudimentary drum machine, plonk/pingy snare sound, catchy as fuck riffs, utterly deranged blastbeat sections with slower stomping/blasting Mincer parts. Neanderthal D-Beat Punk Goregrind. Andy really is very good at sneaking deliciously stupid and catchy melodies into these gross demos he churns out. As has I have said here before, many of the man’s Gore projects sound not all that different, but when they’re pretty much all this putrid/stupid good, who really gives a shit? Extra points for the combination of the terms Cannibalistic and Miscarriage, too. Fuck me, that’s really rather silly.
