Selfmadegod Records has just issued the first single to Overkill Commando, the debut full-length from Polish grindcore quartet, NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST, as the album is completed for Summer release.

NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST, comprised of vocalist Bloodseeker, guitarist XXX-Bomber, drummer Overkiller, and bassist Doomtrigger, recorded twenty brand new songs for their debut album at local Backyard Studios with producer Pawel “Chudy” Chyla in April and May 2016, completing the record just days ago. Overkill Commando is powerful dose of dirty, old-fashioned grindcore heavily influenced by classic bands like Terrorizer, Extreme Noise Terror, and Repulsion. The cover image by Marcin Studzinski of St. Chaos Art, the album’s track listing, and release info have been revealed in addition to the streaming of the album’s opening track, Abominations Of Annihilation.

Stream NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST’s “Abominations Of Annihilation” at Selfmadegod’s SoundCloud HERE or YouTube channel HERE.

Overkill Commando will see European release on June 27th, and will see US release on September 9th, the long delay due to a new MVD distribution deal for Selfmadegod Records; this record marking the first title under the new pact. Stand by for further details in the weeks ahead.

Posted in grindcore, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on March 24, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Unrest - Grindcore - promo album cover pic - #2015UMO

The aptly titled Grindcore from Philadelphia/Brooklyn grinders UNREST is out today on Unspeakable Axe Records. Stream the album in full here

Grindcore can be purchased at: 

“UNREST gets the NASUM grind seal of approval!” – Anders Jakobson

9/10! – Decibel Magazine

If the band name doesn’t spell it out for you, the album title surely will. This is nothing but grindcore – stripped down, unpretentious, and loud. At the same time, it’s much more than that. UNREST is comprised of craftsmen from bands both familiar (WOE, TRENCHROT and those about to be (Dark Descent’s up-and-coming doom act, CRYPT SERMON).

The riff and song construction throughout this debut album is right in line from what you’d expect from a group of such capable veterans. They wear their NASUM (and by proxy, NAPALM DEATH) influence on their sleeves, but through sheer mastery of the craft elevate the material well beyond a mere tribute to old masters.


UNREST Grindcore – Track List:

1. We’re Calling You Out
2. You Take
3. Inaction
4. Quit
5. Protest Culture
6. Faith is a Hearse
7. Anything to Shock
8. Nothing (That’s all you have to give)
9. Identity in the Internet Age
10. Consumption
11. False Brotherhood
12. Drown

Italian Grind/Hatecore Gods CRIPPLE BASTARDS Confirmed For Obscene Extreme

Cripple Bastards - promo live band pic - band logo - 2014 - #030550

You could say this is a ‘grindcore hat-trick’ as it is the third OEF appearance in 2014 for Italian hate mob Cripple Bastards after headlining the insane Obscene Extreme Asia in Tokyo and Obscene Extreme Australia in Melbourne earlier this year. But if you really want to see the Bastards play at home, then Obscene Extreme Trutnov is the grounds for the final massacre. They have been blasting the shit on stage since the festival’s birth back in 1999 and raised the most infernal stage diving pits for countless times through the years that followed.

26 years after their conception Cripple Bastards still hold the banner high as Italy’s most hostile and aggressive grind/hardcore unit around. With one foot firmly in the past and all the vicious savagery of manic fast 80’s hardcore extremity, Cripple Bastards are also charging forwards. With bloodshot eyes and a rabid ‘get out and bite them’ attitude, this band are ready to introduce their brand new 2014 full length ‘Nero In Metastasi’ on Relapse Records and they will consolidate their ongoing mission of bringing nihilistic, fuck-you-all, grinding hatred to every corner of an underserving mankind.

Cripple Bastards will also be introducing for the first time ever on Trutnov’s Battlefield their 5 piece line-up with new axeman Wild Vitto on second guitar which will only enhance their wall of hate/grind fury!

Listen to ‘Malato Terminale’ taken from the ‘Nero In Metastasi’ album!

HOMEWRECKER – Releases Video For New Demo Track

Posted in grindcore, Metal, metal bands, metal music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , on February 1, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Homewrecker - puclicity live pic - 2014 - #33

Northeastern Ohio’s HOMEWRECKER has just released a video for “Skin The Pig,” a brand new demo track the band recently recorded with their newly revamped lineup.

Having scaled their squad from a quintet with a vocalist down to a quartet with the drummer and guitarist dividing vocal duties, HOMEWRECKER recorded the track as an introduction to the new lineup, and to help fill the gap between their 2012-released Worms & Dirt LP and next official release later this year. As proven on their previous recordings, the band’s enraged hardcore is jacked-up on death and grindcore elements and delivered at decimating, tuned-down levels.

The overhauled band now unloads an even tighter display of relentless d-beat and blast-infused guttural torment which was present in their recent set at A389’s tenth anniversary Bash, and is now blatant in “Skin The Pig.” The music for the video was recorded by band cohort Thomas Tadsen in Cleveland in December, the video was shot by Todd Thompson.

Check out the new video hosted via Toxicbreed’s Funhouse below:

Full video sets from HOMEWRECKER’s A389 X Bash set have also been posted by Hate5Six HERE and Metal Injection’s Pit Full of Shit HERE

HOMEWRECKER will enter Developing Nations Studio with Kevin Bernsten in mid-April to record their sophomore LP, now confirmed with the title Circle of Death­, for Summer release via A389, who also released Worms & Dirt. The band is also booking tours for the Spring and Summer months and will be pulling weekend warrior attacks in the interim, with participation in Berserker Fest in Ferndale, Michigan with Macabre, Wolf Eyes, Ringworm and more the first weekend of February, Fire Fest in Cleveland, Ohio on April 19th with Ringworm, Weekend Nachos and Death Before Dishonor and more confirmed.

Italian grind masters EXHUMER and Comatose Music have joined forces with Apoch’s Metal Review for the premier of a brand new track off the band’s forthcoming album, Degraded by Sepsis.

The track, entitled Vapours of Cadaveric Mucilage, has been posted for your neck-snapping enjoyment at this location.

Ruthless and calculating, Degraded by Sepsis marks the first recorded output from one of Italy’s sickest Death Metal exports since their 2008 full-length debut, Bloodcurdling Tool of Digestion. This new release displays rabid skills of technical brutality, inhuman speed and supreme aggression while leaving a trail of blood-soaked anguish in the unavoidable aftermath. Album artwork for Degraded by Sepsis by the renowned Jon Zig.

Degraded by Sepsis is set for an October 15th release on Comatose Music.  Pre-orders are now available at

DRUGS OF FAITH – Confirms Details On Upcoming EP

Posted in Extreme Metal, grindcore, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 12, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Drugs Of Faith - Architectural Failures - promo cover pic

Northern Virginia-based trio DRUGS OF FAITH have completed the final stages of their upcoming new EP, as they prepare it for release late this Autumn.

The first new recordings to emerge since their 2011 Corroded album, DRUGS OF FAITH let loose with four brand new tracks on the freshly finished Architectural Failures EP. The band’s patented rocked-out grindcore approach here shows some brutally awesome dissonant tones and more expansive dimensions with a crushing metallic production courtesy of the sessions at Developing Nations with Kevin Bernsten (Full Of Hell, Inter Arma, Ilsa, Coke Bust) and final mastering by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed). Architectural Failures will see release in late November as a one-sided 12″ limited to 300 copies with a digital download via Malokul, the DIY label started by D.C. act Disciples of Christ.

Coming from co-founder Richard Johnson (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Enemy Soil), DRUGS OF FAITH has endured since 2003, with a plethora of releases out via Poland’s Selfmadegod Records amidst several demos and compilation spots including Relapse Records’ This Comp Kills Fascists Vol.2. And simply put, they fucking shred. Following recent live actions including this year’s MACROCK conference in Virginia followed by a spot on the Philadelphia date of this year’s Decibel Magazine Tour with Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death and Immolation, DRUGS OF FAITH will again take to the streets with updates to be announced in the weeks ahead.

Architectural Failures Track Listing:

1. The Incumbent

2. Insanity

3. Paper Trails

4. Placing Bets
