Facegrinder – Kugelblitz

The Music

The Words

If the name itself of the band—Facegrinder, Face. Grinder. GRINDER OF FACES—doesn’t invoke visceral sentiments, or if the album’s title, Kugelblitz—a black hole made of pure energy—, doesn’t resonate with higher orbital levels, then let the music speak for itself. The Perthbound deathgrind trio just released one of the big titles for today’s grinding repertoire.

The band’s sound is harsh, raw-sounding; thanks, in part, to the absence of a bass guitar to the mix, giving the wall of sound a razor sharp quality that often is a hallmark of grindcore as a genre. … Read more

Grizzly – Reaper

Murder Construct – Compelled by Mediocrity (Results, 2012)

Listen to this while you read!

Fucking brutal.

That’s how I would put Murder Construct’s new song, “Compelled by Mediocrity”.

The song has made quite some waves since it’s release. To understand why, just watch the lyric video below.

My favorite line might be “Booooorn tooooo suck!”.

Of course, some might see this song as a direct attack to the djent community. And while it is, it is so tastefully put that I don’t care the least of the world, even though I love well-done djent (Ever Forthright is the band that comes to mind).

Murder Construct is the greatly … Read more
