Grime

May 25, 2012

For some (un)healthy aural pummeling, check out Italian outfit Grime‘s self titled debut EP released in the summer of 2011! These guys offer up a nice varied blend of sludge, doom and metal with screechy black metal-esque vocals with such intense aggression you physically recoil upon the initial listen. After a much disturbing intro (sampled from the Cape Fear remake) the band goes for your throat and don’t let up for half an hour.

This is just pure brutality at insane levels. The production, the attitude – everything seems designed to ultimately destroy the listener. Sometimes at a crawl, occasionally picking up speed the band never lets up and succeeds in their quest of completely annihilating their surroundings. Eight songs that is nothing less than physically exhausting, check it out!

Whores.

December 19, 2011

For a healthy dose of skull-crushing metallic sludge Georgian trio Whores. offer up their track Daddy’s Money off their debut 12″ EP Ruiner soon to be released on Panda Records. Admittedly inspired by bands like Black Flag and Melvins I hear a vast amount of influences ranging from early Helmet to Unsane, maybe even some Cop Shoot Cop with a bit of early Swans thrown in! We’re talking loud! Loud guitars, loud drums, screaming vocals and a pounding bass that goes for the jugular – brutal music as it is meant to sound.

According to the label bio the EP offers up a total of five tracks just perfect for your next dental surgery appointment, but I gotta say they could’ve offered a couple of more sample tracks on their Bandcamp. Check it out and get in touch with the label for the vinyl version.

UPDATE: Their Bandcamp site now offers all five tracks from their EP.
