Best of Grindcore 2021


The filthiest, rankiest, dirtiest, grindiest shit out there.


Number Five: Gross Pizza – Pepperonivirus 2: Pizza Variant

“One step on the balls… Two steps on the dick” is perhaps my favourite lyrical passage of the year, and this is all thanks to this amazing and funny discovery I made earlier this year. Indulge.


Number Four: Rat Punch – It’s a Drink


Rat Punch released an awesome album this year. It’s a Drink is fast-paced and chaotic and heavy hitting; it’s all we need from a grindcore album!
Disclaimer: bass player writes for the blog, so take that any way you want!


Number Three: Full of Hell – Garden of Burning Apparitions


The new FOH goes hard! How hard? #3 hard.


Number Two: Diploid – I Am Yours, and I Am Here Again


Yes, yes, everybody knows Diploid are the best. I’m not original, I’m just telling it how it is. This album rules.


Number One: Many-Eyed Seraphim – Many-Eyed Seraphim


I’ve raved about this one already, so I shan’t indulge. Just know that this is the best grind album of all times.
