Blink Of An Eye: Guinness Book of World Records No Longer Listing “Shortest…” Records Held

As any of you out there should know, especially if you’re grindfreaks, that the Guinness World Records for shortest song and music video are held by Napalm Death and Brutal Truth respectively. The two grindcore bands have held these records for a long time and now it appears that Guinness will no longer be listing said “shortest” World Records. They stated the following:

“The nature of competing to make something the ‘shortest’ by its very nature trivialises the activity being carried out, and Guinness World Records has been forced to reject many claims of this kind. As such, we have been forced to cease listing records for the shortest song, shortest poem and indeed the shortest concert.”

The above statement was actually not made towards the current Record-holders, it was actually in response to Earache Records latest facemelter, Earache: Worlds Shortest Album which consists of 13 tracks in less than 1:30. Yes, that’s right. Thirteen power-packed grinding punches. Featuring track by grind heavyweights Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, Wormrot and Anal Cunt but also tracks by bands like Morbid Angel and Lawnmower Deth, this release is pretty killer and it’s only $4.99 on iTunes. So yeah. Guinness are douchebags and Earache are spiffy. Check out this compilation and enjoy the classic Napalm Death‘s “You Suffer” below and see the full track list for The Worlds Shortest Album.
