Ass To Mouth - Degenerate

Rimming is pretty nasty most of the time, but there has allegedly been a popular resurgence regarding acceptance of the practice. Ass To Mouth is here to help us celebrate this fact with their filthy grind and its nicely bleached production.

Corrupt Moral Altar - Mechanical Tides

Bandcamp music player
Whether you believe it or not, elegant, varied, funky and intelligent grindcore isn't a series of oxymorons. It exists, and even if it didn't, Corrupt Moral Altar would have invented it with their pummeling début rightfully titled Mechanical Tides. Let yourself drown in successive waves of the finest punk-and-sludge-inspired grindcore.

Dephosphorus - Ravenous Solemnity

Astro-grind? Yep! Dephosphorus, with this Ravenous Solemnity, wrote a twisted grind album totally immersed in science-fiction. Hell, the album is dedicated to the memory of the late Iain M. Banks, and it definitely features several quotes from his books. Music-wise, expect to be pummelled by a furious assault led by !T.O.O.H.!-like vocals, with twisted guitars and relentless drumming - and a great flair for memorable songwriting!

Gridlink - Longhena

Bandcamp music player
This is some furious technical grind that moves faster and hits harder than just about anything from 2014. It's actually insane. Deserves to be called insane.

Bandcamp



Hierophant - Peste

Hierophant must have gone through hell trying to gather all the punch they could find in death, black, grind and hardcore punk. The result is an addictive cocktail which could be compared to a less civilized Trap Them, but not as insane as Nails. All in all, these Italian "deathpunkers" struck the perfect balance between methodically violent and faeces-smearing-on-walls-batshit-crazy.

Implore - Black Knell

Nine minutes. You couldn't do a lot in nine minutes, but the German new-comers Implore didn't need more than that to prove with their furious, death-infused and groovy grindcore that the scene is still alive and grinding. Explosive, original and addictive, Black Knell is just as short and refreshing as the cold shower you need after a night of heavy partying.

Bandcamp



Jig-Ai - Rising Sun Carnage

Bandcamp music player
Pussy barbecue and hentai goregrind from Czech Republic anyone? Yes? No? All in of course. Jig-Ai are here to blow your head off with pulverizing, blasting and relentlessly raw annihilation. Simple, non-complex grindcore party with a pinch of death metal seasoning on top. Cheers!

Bandcamp



Keitzer - The Last Defence

Bandcamp music player
Groove and aggression with no time wasting whatsoever. Part Bolt Thrower riff-work, part Trap Them abrasiveness, The Last Defence is unadulterated, rapid grindcore artillery fire.

Suffering Quota - Suffering Quota

Damn, see that artwork? That's where everything and everyone you know goes to, with Suffering Quota as a soundtrack. The debut of this Dutch group is a relentless mix of grindcore and death metal, with slower parts that really emphasize the heaviness and sense of impending doom behind the music. The tight and varied composition makes this album a less than half hour of fat-free chaos.

Bandcamp



Vermin Womb - Permanence

Bandcamp music player
Formed from the remnants of Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fire, the new Vermin Womb trio decided to take grind to a new level of ugly by punching impetuous death and thick sludge elements into their sound. There's no superlative strong enough to describe the mix of ugly, ugly, and ugly Vermin Womb play. And ugly grind is the best grind.
