4-way grind split with Meat Cutting Floor, Japanische Kampfhörspiele, Brud and Nervous Impulse!

Nakay/LxPxPx (Grindfather prod)

As you all know grindcore has pread everywhere. This strange, fast, yelling and aggressive kind of music helps many people to release their own protests, to relieve stress or it can help you to convey somebody's own vision of this world. Well like I said this genre is everywhere and today I want to talk about two interesting representatives of this extreme direction, Nakay (from USA) and Little Puppy Princess (from South Korea). This release is short and it has a very strange cover. It's really first time when I see something like this. A man with his dog is jumping into the water (wtf?)... strange choice for the cover 😉
This small split starts with the Nakay side. Well alphabetical order is our order so let's begin with this band. Our American friends are well known in the Grind world. They've got a lot of records and this one is the latest. This side flows very well, I'm literally stuck to my speakers, haha! I have been attacked with some nice raw sound and dirty blastbeats! They managed to create a really powerful guitar sound, these 6 strings sound really buzzing. But this 4 minutes is rich not only with crazy grindcore, but you will alsp hear a lot of badass death metal riffs (which the songs even better). And different kinds of vocals (these fits her perfectly, btw) ends this list.
Little Puppy Princess (what a weird name) is a pretty messy 3 piece band. These trio are acting fast, dirty and with huge load of ferocity (they seriously remind me some of old Japanese bands, with that aggression). The whole sound is unclean and muddy… sometimes I can't recognize the guitar sound. All the instruments are clumped together… but that's not the point. The main point is in the energy of this release. You should just relax and feel this wall of really mad energy. These guys tried really hard, they spent all their power on what they had. I'm almost certain they recorded these songs on the first take.
Ah yes, I almost forgot, play this split at maximum volume!
Rating: Nakay - 8/10 LxPxPx - 7.5/10

Ensepulcher (18.01.18)

Today, we bring you an absolutely sick death metal band from Fresno, California, by the name of Ensepulcher. This project features Adam Camara and Johnny Valles from the grindcore band Fiend and James Torres from Haggus and Antagonizer. I have been extremely excited about this band since Adam and Johnny first announced it. Their debut demo “No Sanctity in Death” immediately got me hooked on the filth they had to offer. Though many new bands use the HM2 pedal, Swedish death metal sound, I feel that those groups rely too much on the tone itself and haven’t really caught my attention in the way Ensepulcher has. These guys don’t just throw together a tone setup in hopes of maintaining a certain image, but instead bring a creative and crushing element to it all. These factors really make Ensepulcher such an enticing band for me. I hear the influence they get from Swedish bands such as Nirvana 2002, God Macabre and Carnage, and a total DIY punk attitude to add into the mix. I can’t wait to hear more from them and to see them live in person as much as possible. I recently asked Adam and Johnny to answer some interview questions in order to learn more about what they are doing and what they’re looking to accomplish. Given everything they have to say, I am very excited and look forward to more from them. Enjoy!

Nice and warm news from Sarkast!

Disuse - Demo 2017

Holland is known for having loads of amazing extreme bands from a variety of genres. Disuse is no exception to this knowledge. This 3 Piece Grind Unit hail from Leiden,Netherlands and are fairly new to the scene. Featuring Jan Lugtenburg of Brodequin fame on drums as well as Rogier Kuzee of Kru$h/Last Days of Humanity on vocals. Now enough about the band let's get to this lovely little cassette. The cover art is kind of your average Grindcore front cover, depicting a mountain of what look like World War II Gas Masks. Onward to the part we are all really here for, the noise! The first song hits like a truck from the start with relentless Blastbeats and Chunky Chainsaw Riffs. Then Rogier comes in hurling ungodly roaring and almost guttural screeches that will make ones skin crawl. Each song on this short and sweet demo stands on its own. From the hilariously titled Bob Ross to the bloody brilliant Fundamentally Dead. So, if you're looking for a new and intriguing Dutch Grindcore experience, definitely look into Disuse! Rating- 7.5/10 Disuse bc Disuse fb
