Grinding Gore slop from Mexico. Dreadfully excellent recording quality, with retching shifted vocal sat astride caustic Guitar/Bass and a-bit-too-quiet tape recorded drums, which actually sound very competent for the most part. Lo-rent and extremely hazardous. Largely ploughs along at full speed but there’s moments of drop tempo Mince parts and Punk beats to keep things fresh (stagnant?). Largely unoriginal and very entertaining. 7 Tracks in 7 Minutes, for those of short attention spans and stunted social skills.
Deathy Noisegrind featuring members of Captain 3 Leg and Dismembered Fetus, brought to you by good ol’ Mortville Noise. Crushing Death Metal slow riffs open up into grinding parts reminiscent of good Agathocles or Blood, Savage barbarian Vocals, grinding bass and slabs of fatty Guitar, working out movements from slow-slow death creep, mid paced head stompers, with flashes of all out BORT BORT Noisecore that serve to accent otherwise well structured Death/Grind songs. I find many of these riffs are real earworms, catchy and usually unexpected, and the compositions are shockingly coherent and excellent for a record with a Tardcore tag. This is a totally hidden gem; I see very little praise anywhere online for this one and it’s a damn shame. It’s among my favourite Mortville releases of the last few years. Essential repeat listening.
Cystoblastosis is a recent 3 peice Mince/Gore band from St Petersberg. This short demo is comprised of stomping Mince tempo punk blasts, with rattling, strangling Bass, echo-ish rehearsal room Drums and necrotic, rasping pitch shifted Vocal. It’s crusted over, reeking and disgusting, with lots of troglodyte grooves, blasting parts and little subtlety, poorly and loudly recorded. The recording quality well accentuates Cystoblastosis’ plodding stampede of weird internet Mincecore. Gory, putrid, Punk as fuck, low rent, lo-fi, lovely. Check it out.
Take That Vile Fiend is another mutant Brainchild of Brad Blarghst, maniac responsible for Super Fun Happy Slide, Blarghstrad and others. Here we have 4 rampant, Noisy Gore abominations, all crapped out in a single afternoon by the mad doctor himself. The results are chaotic and Noisegrind-ish, with some structured moments bursting into pure churning Noise blasts. Bass riffs buried under a tidal wave of Drums and gurgly Vocal spew. A sumptuously placed Simpsons quote opens the demo, and sets the tone of goofy, ‘sloopy’ fun very aptly. Sounds like a somehow-even-more nonsensical version of Super Fun Happy Slide, if such a thing could be possible. Excellent!
Goregrind from Russia/Holland and Chile. Butcher M.D. specialises in the kind of medically accurate, tumor dissecting pathological Goregrind that Nx5 kicks out on an endless basis. Tight, clipped, blood thinning drum programming, surreally precise slabs of Gore Guitars, and exhaustive vomitous gurgle Vocal from none other than Dr. Erwin de Groot. The songs casually move from D Beatish Punk sctions to all out blasting effortlessly and satisfyingly. Totally fucking excellent and altogether too short. Check out their full length here and pay something to download it. GBA play a similar brand of Ghoulish Goregrind, with a touch less precision and more slop. If Butcher M.D. is the cruel, cold surgeon, GBA is the deranged necrophile mutilating corpses in the morgue. More Gorenoise-ish gore tornado parts, maniac riffing with super cold ping Snare blast beats, obligatory wounded animal shifted Vocal. Gross shit! A pairing of similarly excellent current Gore projects. Buy a copy from Twisted Truth Records, poser!

Clogged is a recent project from Australia, featuring members of Roskopp, The Kill, Super Fun Happy Slide and others, adding yet another band to an ever growing incest colony of excellent Grindcore from Melbourne. Clogged here presents a tidal wave of gory gastric flu toilet tornado grindcore virulence. Fat throbbing gore riffs, hyper blasting, deranged Drumming, 3 headed roar/shriek/shifted Vocal, a big Noisecore hard-on sporting Goregrind monstrosity, bursting out of a secret lab and consuming scientists whole. Dense, nasty, un-serious, bizarre and brutal. Their cover of Anal Cunt’s ‘Branscombe Richmond’ is right on the money, and the final track ‘D-rex remix’ is really, really dumb. Just the ticket. I highly recommend dropping 6 credits on this and getting yourself a physical copy, which you can do at the below link. So gross!
Cephalophore is a recent Goregrind project from Canada, featuring Evan from Metastasis and GoFuckYourself, among others. This demo has a very old school disgusting Mortician vibe, with the low mixed drum machine clicking away under a fat tide of gelatinous Death Metal tinged Goregrind riffs and totally inhuman Troll grunt vocal. Sloppy, barbaric, awesome. Dusty old Science Fiction and Fantasy readings give Cephalophore a unique identity that slightly sidesteps your more usual pathologically obsessed Goregrind band, and they’re stronger for it. Awesome demo, and a band to watch. Goregrind to vanquish your coward Visigoth enemies to.
