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.

UNREST ‘Grindcore’ – Out Today On Unspeakable Axe Records

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.

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

We’ve deliberately tried to evoke the feeling of that album and Heartwork.”

SQUASH BOWELS – “Grindcoholism” Confirmed For Release Via Selfmadegod

Posted in grind, grindcore, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on June 14, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Squash Bowels - grindcoholism - promo cover pic

Album cover art by Rafal Wechterowicz.

Grindcoholism – the sixth studio full-length from Polish grind butchers SQUASH BOWELS – is completed and awaiting disbursement in the near weeks ahead via Selfmadegod Records.

Since the early ‘90s the trio known as SQUASH BOWELS — bassist Artur “Paluch” Grassmann, guitarist, Andrzej “Andy” Pakos and drummer Mariusz “Melon” Miernik have infected the planet with their battering tunes, their massive catalog of releases including countless demos, singles, EPs, five previous LPs under the banners of Obscene Productions, Lifestage Productions, Willowtip and more, as well as split releases with grind scene notables Malignant Tumor, Catasexual Urge Motivation, Birdflesh, Disgorge, Cock and Ball Torture, Sewn Shut, Neuropathia, Flesh Grinder and many others.

Grindcoholism is SQUASH BOWELS’ first full-length since 2009’s Willowtip-released Grindvirus album. Like an avalanche of activated jackhammers and downed power lines, the awaited new LP from the notorious assassins unapologetically overwhelms the listener with the band’s expected old-school style and their unavoidable gore persuasion. Harnessed and mixed at world-famous Hertz Studio (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated, Dead Infection) in Bialystok, Poland by the Wieslawscy brothers.

Packing as much leveling, blastbeatdown, guttural punishment as possible into fourteen new hyper-fast, unrelenting tracks in under thirty-two minutes, Grindcoholism is easily one of 2013’s highlights of the grind scene. Those with a heart condition or apt to frequent low-potency pseudo blasting need not apply; this is true, primal, groove-strewn grind of the highest caliber.

Go unload the raging track “The Second…” from Grindcoholism below!

Grindcoholism will see North American release on July 2nd, but preorders made via Selfmadegod directly will ship ahead of the street date


Grindcoholism Track Listing:

01. Tastelessness

02. Trap

03. The Theater

04. Surrender?

05. The Second…

06. Inclinations To…

07. Grindcoholism

08. Steering

09. Naked Positive Act

10. La Mienta

11. Compassions

12. Litany Of Hungry

13. Foreign Will

14. Stigmatizing

CARCASS – Extreme Metal Legends Headlining DAMNATION FESTIVAL 2013

Damnation Festival - 2013 - promo flyer



As reported by Damnation Festival:

English Extreme Metal legends CARCASS will return to headline the ninth Damnation Festival for their only UK appearance following the release of their first album in 17 years.

The Death and Grind standard bearers have promised another historic set which will feature cult classics alongside unexpected old gems and brand new material when they take the stage at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 2, 2013.

And after helping to sell out Damnation Festival in advance back in 2008, guitarist Bill Steer is looking forward to performing to a packed house on their return to the event.

He said: “We’re very excited about the prospect of returning to Damnation Festival this year.

“Our appearance there in 2008 was a major highlight for us and this time around, people can expect to hear a fairly different Carcass set.

“The old favourites will be in there, of course, but we’re also planning to play a couple of the less obvious tracks from our past, as well as songs from the album we’ve just completed. Join us!”Carcass - Band Promo Pic - 2013 - #1


With 22 more bands to be announced across three stages, festival director Gavin McInally, said fans can look forward to the melting pot of diverse styles of music Damnation Festival is known for from Black Metal to Post-Rock.

He added: “It was a coup to land the first UK Carcass show in 13 years in 2008 when fans snapped up every ticket going before we made it to the day itself and it’s another coup having the band return following the release of their first new album in 17 years.

“But even with the mighty Carcass topping the bill, we won’t be satisfied until we’ve pieced together a more challenging and brilliant day of music than the eight successful years we’ve already had the pleasure of hosting, so expect a lot more to come from 2013.”

Tickets for Damnation Festival 2013 are on sale now and will be held at last year’s price of £32 for a limited period.

DRUNK DAD – Noise/Sludge Quartet’s EP Is The Eolian Empire’s Next Conquest

Posted in experimental rock, grindcore, Music, noise rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 30, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Eolian Empire Compilation - promo cover - 2013

In a constant barrage of new noise from Portland-based D.I.Y. noisemongers Eolian Empire, the label’s next conquest comes by way of the filthifying new 12” from local metalworkers DRUNK DAD.

If they weren’t such dirty fuckers they’d be one of the town’s shining success stories of unrelenting hard work and dedication: in a surprisingly short time DRUNK DAD went from favorite-band-shirts-on-their-hearts-on-their-sleeves to a unique and dynamic fusion of the heavy, the noisy, and the aggro, with a healthy dose of high drama, as they consistently churn out some of the most devastating live sets Portland has seen in years. Complex but in-your-face arrangements, push-pull duel-guitar interplay, searing behind-the-head leads, heavy motherfucking bass, and hard-hitting, tight, technical traps with dynamic, disturbing vocals to hold it all together evolves to ethical scumbaggery at its finest.

Morbid Reality, the first vinyl release from Portlandian shitstarters DRUNK DAD, merges off-kilter sludge/noise the Pacific Northwest perpetuates so well into a drugged-out but aggro vibe; elements of scathing crust-ish degenerate punk brutality of El Dopa or Dystopia are cold-filtered with slow-motion acerbic sludge basslines and noxious riffage with a post-Melvins experimental vibe.

Eolian Empire will drop the four-song Morbid Reality via 12” vinyl and digital download on June 11th. In the meantime, DRUNK DAD were recently caught intoxicating the public via Eolian’s massive KEEP OUR HEADS Portland underground compilation alongside twenty-five more of the city’s finest filthriffing acts. Get wrecked with their pungent “S.O.U.” anthem from the comp RIGHT HERE.

Following their spot on one of the Eolian Empire KEEP OUR HEADS record release shows over the weekend, DRUNK DAD have the coolers loaded with frothy ammo as they plan on stumbling south across California this week, with shows booked in Eureka, Oakland and a happy-hour double in San Francisco. They also just booked a hometown record release show at Portland’s Ash Street Saloon with labelmates Diesto on June 7th, with much more public drunkenness to be had in the Summer months.


DRUNK DAD Public Intoxications:

5/02/2013 The Shanty – Eureka, CA w/ Apocryphon, AM Beers

5/03/2013 Eli’s Mile High Club – Oakland, CA w/ Augers, Old Crow, Abstractor

5/04/2013 Hemlock Tavern – San Francisco, CA w/ Prizehog, Connoisseur

5/05/2013 Bay Area 51 – San Francisco, CA w/ Unifried, Mansion

6/07/2013 Ash Street Saloon – Portland, OR w/ Diesto


Morbid Reality – Track Listing:

1. Guts

2. Seizure

3. Ritual

4. Scum Fee

EXHALE – Signs With Pulverised Records; New Album Releasing In 2013

Posted in Death Metal, grindcore, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on December 30, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Pulverised Records - Large Logo!! B&W!Exhale - large logo - B&W

Pulverised Records has announced the official signing of Swedish Grind-guerrillas EXHALE!

With the group formed in 2004, EXHALE have already proven themselves to be a devastating force since their inception, bombarding the Grindcore community with two full-length albums Prototype in 2006 and Blind in 2010. Two years later into the band’s last effort, EXHALE sharpened their Grind-weapons and returns even more powerful than before!

With a brand new full-length entitled When Worlds Collide, this album sees EXHALE taking on a much more dynamic approach while still maintaining an extremely strict diet of sick and demented modern Grind-sanity.

When Worlds Collide will be scheduled for a 2013 release, with more announcements and further album details to be unleashed soon.

In an official press statement, the band stated: “We’re really proud to announce that we have inked a deal with Pulverised Records. The label has released some really good albums during the years (Bombs Of Hades, Desultory, Morbus Chron just to name a few), so it feels great to be among them.When Worlds Collide contains 14 tracks of Grinding Death Metal. You will recognize the sound of EXHALE but there are also a few surprises for you! Can’t wait to release this monster! See you on the road in 2013!”

Pulverised Records A&R Manager Calvin further commented: “Throughout the years of our search for the signing the ‘right’ bands, there were of course many bands that we felt were a great addition to our roster. Then came along EXHALE’s four-song promo by way of email one day, and those four tracks became an instant hit with us! There are some real serious chops and unbelievably stalwart songwriting amongst all that chaos; it is almost unreal. We are extremely proud to have EXHALE join the Pulverised family, and we cannot wait to present When Worlds Collide on a worldwide domination crusade. Onward to Grind-gotha we shall!”

So come on out and rage with us — last chance in 2012! We look forward to making the most out of this opportunity to melt your faces one last time before we fuck off and get ready for 2013.”

PRIMATE – Two Tracks From Debut LP “Draw Back A Stump” Uncaged

Posted in grindcore, hardcore metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on June 3, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Two separate anthems from grindsmiths PRIMATE‘s debut LP Draw Back a Stump have been set loose on a public rampage this week. Today fans can hear the raging track “Pride” via a Relapse lyric video AT THIS LOCATION.

Recently, Metal Injection included the album’s opening/title track “Draw Back a Stump” on an exclusive twenty-song Relapse podcast downloadable RIGHT HERE.

After an initial 1000-run CD pressing released by the band directly in 2011 was quickly devoured by an immediately ravenous fanbase, PRIMATE will re-unleash their debut album Draw Back A Stump via Relapse on July 3rd through CD, LP and deluxe digital download formats. The seven hymns from the initial version now include additional rhythm guitars and have been remixed and remastered, and are joined with three previously unreleased bonus tracks for this edition. Pre-orders for the album are available HERE.

Atlanta’s villainous PRIMATE is composed of vocalist Kevin Sharp, bassist/vocalist Dave Whitworth, drummer Shayne Huff and guitarists Bill Kelliher and Mike Brennan, an all-star lineup hellbent on delivering Grade-A punk the likes of which has not been set loose on the ears of the world since the glory days Hardcore. Following several destructive live appearances last year after the album was initially released, this new version will see PRIMATE taking to the streets once again, as live confrontations and more are being planned to take place over the coming months.

Following the release of their Hereditas 10″ late last summer, Brazilian Grindcore faction DESALMADO took Europe by storm on a brutal D.I.Y.-style November/December tour. The three-week venture saw the crew taking their crushing South American-style hate-fueled attack through Portugal, Spain, Belgium, Holland, France, Germany, and more, all compiled in a killer new video “documentary.” See the quintet’s beer-swilling, prank-filled, mosh-powered trip through the continent RIGHT HERE.

DESALMADO have also recently completed their sophomore LP, which is now undergoing final preparations for its release early this Summer. The album was produced by Jean Dolabella of Sepultura and mastered by Jamal Ruhe at West West Side. A confirmed release date and full album info will be announced in the weeks ahead. For now ravenous fans can devour DESALMADO‘s Hereditas 10″ which is still streaming in its entirety via HELLBOUND. The EP’s crushing vinyl version can purchased at the Greyhaze Records website.

Next week DESALMADO will share the stage with Impurity, Acheron and Death Metal gods Obituary in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, as part of Cogumelo Fest 2012, a one-off as the band formulate their next tour in support of the forthcoming album.
