Twitch of the Death Nerve was formed in 2004 as a side project of Tom Bradfield and Tom Carter from Infected Disarray and Beef Conspiracy. After releasing a split CD, the pair continued with their other projects (including Grindethic Records and Repulsive Dissection) whilst at the same time working on tracks for a full length release. The line-up was later completed by recruiting Defeated Sanity’s drummer Lille Gruber, and the band began working on a debut album. The style of music centered on relentless brutal death metal, drawing on influences from the glory years of the scene, but also keeping a focus on interesting compositions and adding progressive elements to the sound. ‘A New Code of Morality’ is now finally complete and is presented along with some gruesomely epic Marco Hasmann artwork to complement the misanthropy drenched nihilism

The history of Dehumanized dates back to the mid-90s, an era that saw the rise of several legendary New York death metal acts, not the least of which included Suffocation, Internal Bleeding, and Pyrexia. In 1998 Dehumanized released their debut album ‘Prophecies Foretold’. The album was a savage crash course into the classic style of New York slam death metal. As a result of this impressive release they are now considered by many as one of the bands who helped define and shape the undeniable sound and feel of New York death metal. ‘Controlled Elite’ will be the title of the new Dehumanized album

Being Killed is a three piece combination of sickness hailing from San Diego,CA.Sickening Brutal Death Metal perfomrmed with relentless fury and plenty of Flesh Shredding Riffs.Flawless Drumming by Dave Astor (CattleDecapitation/Pathology) with Inhuman Guttural Vocals Courtesy of Levi Fuselier (Disgorge).
Being Killed's first album, Massacre of the Living, was released early this year itself. It sounded like a complete brutal death metal version of Fuck…I'm Dead with ballsy and irresistibly catchy beats comparable to Carnival of Carnage. With 20 songs in 23 minutes, meandering song structures were probably a myth for Dave Astor and Tim Tiszczenko, who then were firm believers in the concept of going straight for the jugular. For all its in-your-face fun parts, the fact was the album provided limited enjoyment for people with limited intelligence. Being familiar with their other band Pathology, and taking into consideration the level of progression from their debut album to the sophomore one and the very same members' ability to compose good long songs, I knew Being Killed could offer us something much better. And when I heard that they ditched the drum machine and forced poor Dave to produce beats the hard way, I became almost certain of that. Even though I was fairly prepared for what would be in store for me, evidently it wasn't enough. Being Killed have had a drastic change in approach. Gone is the sense of frantic urgency. In its place complacency coupled with a certain bold swagger has set in. It's almost like the personality-altering miracles of potent alcohol have taken place. Being Killed ramble on for just over half-an-hour and take only seven breaks in between; yet they seem pretty comfortable and even in their element. Slurring out of your speakers, the brutal death metal music is markedly slower (sometimes sounding like listening to Disgorge on fading batteries), often purposely played old school-slow to create an effective variation. Sinister low growls emanating from the perforated and half-decomposed throat of Levi Fuselier (newly borrowed from Pathology which in turn borrowed him from Disgorge which in turn stole him from Sabbatic Feast) give a dark, viscid and slimey feel to the music. In fact, the different sections of the music seem to get entangled in his dense words, each probably having a hair-like growth on it. Influences of drum machine bands have given way to riff-oriented bands such as Cannibal Corpse (in their experimental phase) and Putrid Pile ("Indulging in the Nocturnal Feast" is a good example) and stylish bits and pieces of a few other bands as well. For instance “Baphomet Made with Body Parts” is reminiscent of Cattle Decapitation (also check out the odd sound of a motor glider flying overhead in it, twice) while the warped haphazard riffing in “Apocalypse Begun…” is kind of similar to Cephalic Carnage. My main point here is, Being Killed's music isn't too original but their semi-innovative approach works in their favour. Supported by a crunchy production, energetic, almost thrashy parts as well as some flashy tech bits are juxtaposed with chugs of varying pace and nature. It is here that they miscalculate things. Continuity is affected and way too much importance is given to the chugging, which apart from being rendered ineffectual upon overuse, tends to deaden the proceedings. Once again mention should be made of the colourful (blue!) artwork by their loyal artist, Mike Hrubovcak, which gives the album a fresh feel. Often they use intros pregnant with suspense to open their songs, which I guess is akin to the feeling of standing alone in pitch black darkness, expecting a brutal attack, but without having a clue as to from which direction or in what form it is coming. It is Being Killed's quirky approach that raises them just above the reach of dumb zombie-like bands of this genre, forever stuck in a moshpit. Overall though, Kill Yourself is a stylish but choppy album. While it is worth checking out, the next one will be much better.

Pick Your Side is a band from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada featuring members of Haymaker, Left For Dead, and Fuck The Facts. Pick Your Side play a brutal, aggressive, and political style of music that incorporates elements of hardcore, crust, grindcore, and powerviolence. Pick Your Side is the band's debut LP and features 16 tracks of brutal, punishing, and menacing music. These sixteen tracks blaze by with a negative political outlook that's often missing in today's current hardcore scene. Overall, Let Me Show You How Democracy works makes for a powerful and compelling listen. Judging by the band's pedigree, you know you in for some extremely well played crust, grindcore, and powerviolence influenced hardcore and this album totally exceeded my initial expectations. Fans of The Swarm, Left For Dead, Cursed, and Ruination need to give Pick Your Side a listen. Great stuff. Enjoy! Also includes Pick Your Side's Survival Prayer 7" released in 2011 for you to check out as well + live video of a389rec anniversary show, CD comes as mini version of the LP.
The In Disgust side is 11 songs of violent HC grind and ghetto dislocation. Raw like the ugliness of real life, ID build it up and barrel through these tracks with a blasting, no bullshit pace, and a heaviness you expect from West Coast Powerviolence. On the flipside, PLF unleash track after track of relentless, thrashing grindcore. Tons of circle-pitting thrash metal parts and ultra tight stops punctuate the endless killing of this Gulf Coast Grind machine. Top notch recording, and cover art by Daniel Shaw (Insect Warfare, War Master).
This is the final record from the Insect Warfare-influenced, vicious Florida grindcore outfit Cellgraft. After their final show on September 1st at the Brass Mug in Tampa, Florida they're calling it quits. They've generously left this unrelenting jagged shard of grindcore as their final word.
Their records have been tremendous, truly doing the grind scene proud, and it's really a shame that they've split — especially considering they deserve a ton of attention for their hard work and dedication to face shredding grindcore over their short 3 year existence.
Self-titled and raw as you could ask for, this record is as short as any GridLink release and approaching their level of might and ferocity, while sidestepping technicality and barreling head-long into darkened, brutal speed. Outside of the opening track "False Sequence of Value" there is only one other track of the 17 here that approaches one minute in length. The opener is also the slowest you'll ingest too, at least for the first minute as it clobbers you with a maniacal set of distorted groves.cd incl demo,7" and spl 7" tracks
Quattro Stagioni is a 4 piece outfit from Trier/Germany, the band exist from 1998-2008 and played a mix of downtuned Grindcore & hyperblast Power-Violence with tons of groovy moshparts & scream as hell vocals. The CD includes the LP, split 5 " with Iron lung, the 7" on 625, demo tape, 2 live tracks from Nancy and live from Kaiserslautern (Osaka inn) and a remix. 58 tracks total, am must for Powerviolence fans!
Animalgrind is Future and Future is now. In the first 4 years of their existence Attack of the mad Axeman have proven, that animals are unrenounceable for Grindcore in general – and that even without releasing a Split-EP with Agathocles or Unholy Grave. Now, 'Systematic Death Slaughter' is their third Album and still these guys are sticking to the spirit of true Old School Grind. They deliver you 26 new songs that are straight to the point and as fast as snails and turtles can go. Although there's only three tracks starting with a snare-countdown, this record has everything that decent Grindcore needs: good music and a message. Fuck Porngrind, better read this lyrics, they are fantastic!Attention: No frogs or pigs were harmed in the production of this record!
New stuff by the japanese Sludge/Powerviolence Monsters Su 19b, 3 new smasher, incl one 16 min long Sludge/Noise mix assault, not for the weak!! Dot (.) with 2 new face melting downtuned Sludge/Death tracks,from jap cult band. 20 min of pure slow motion Doom/Death like Coffins/Corrupted/Bongzilla.

Houdini is the fifth album by American sludge metal band Melvins, released in 1993 on Atlantic Records.
The Melvins are an American band that formed in 1983. They usually perform as a trio, but in recent years have performed as a four piece with two drummers. Since 1984, singer and guitarist Buzz Osborne (also known as King Buzzo) and drummer Dale Crover have been the band's ongoing members. The band was named after a supervisor at a Thriftway in Montesano, Washington, where Osborne also worked as a clerk. "Melvin" was despised by other employees, and the band's members felt it to be an appropriately ridiculous name. - Wikipedia
