Contrary to popular belief, the Canadian grindfiends who released Disgorge Mexico have actually never toured Mexico. Until today that is. That’s right, Fuck The Facts will kick off their Mexican tour alongside Landmine Marathon and Rottenness on this very day. After the jump you can peep the dates and you can also check out FTF‘s rad cover of Warsore‘s “Thief,” which will be released at some point on a Warsore tribute album. Radness all around.

Fuck The fucking Facts, man. I’ve been friends with these dudes for a good while and I always look forward to new music from them. They never disappoint and they always destroy. It wasn’t too long ago that Fuck The Facts released their debut single off of Amer, “L’enclume et le marteau,” which ruled. Now these crazy canucks are back with another destroyer. Continue reading
Canadian grind veterans Fuck The Facts are currently prepping the release of their new EP Amer which is set for release this Summer. Whenever I go into new Fuck The Facts, I expect perfection. I know these dudes (and lady) and I know they are capable of absolute awesomeness. Well, of course, I was right. This new track “L’enclume et le marteau,” which means “The Anvil and The Hammer,” is a fucking riot. Continue reading
If you’ve been reading this site for a while, you’d know I used to do Q&A’s with my good friend, and Fuck The Facts guitarist Topon Das a lot. It’s been a while since he and I have really talked, so I decided it was time to resurrect the “Talking With Topon” section of American Aftermath. So read on to find out about Fuck The Facts’ upcoming tour, new album and what Topon has been doing when not ripping that six-string.
Remember Did You Just Hex Me?? I’ve talked about them here before. They were a band that I really loved that ended far too quickly. I knew that Did You Just Hex Me?‘s vocalist Brandon May has been working with another band formed from members of other Ottawa bands called Letters From The Princess but I hadn’t check into them yet. Well, after hearing the band’s demo, I can some one thing. Continue reading
Yesterday Canadian grinders Fuck The Facts released a video for the song Drift (via Metal Injection) off of their latest album “Die Miserable“. I honestly have no idea what the fuck I just watched so I’ll just let the director explain the video.
When I first read the lyrics to ‘Drift’ I was blown away by the sentiment: “we used to be friends, but now we are not, did I do something to offend you or was there some unknown, unseen force that drove us away from each other”. Friends. People. They fuck you over, stick you in the back and spit in your face while you are down. People you would trust with your life stick you with a dirty AIDS needle for a fucking nickel. Evil. Death. Inevitable. That’s how I felt after reading the lyrics. Mel is a genius and here lyrics perfectly capture the modern trend of disposable friends.
I knew on reading the lyrics that I wanted two children in the video. Innocence. Driven apart by a dark force – represented here by a mask figure. Dark. Mysterious. Unknown. A threat. A baby in a nest being stalked by birds of prey. That’s life.
Of all the videos I have made I am probably most proud of this one because it got me back to my roots. I filmed, edited, color corrected and did the graphics all myself. Fuck friends.
Sounds pretty rad, right? Continue after the jump to watch the video for Drift. Continue reading
Okay, you might have noticed that the last few days haven’t had my signature “Mourning Jam” posts. There is a reason for this. I wanted to get a jump start on the news day, so I took the playlist out and inserted news. I am moving the playlists to Saturdays from here on because I will be ceasing my posts on Saturday.
You have to understand, I work twelve and a half hours on Saturday so when I get off of work, the last thing I want to do is blog. Sorry, I get tired just like real people. So that’s why the playlists will be my only post on Saturday unless some life-altering news arises. Anyway, listen to Fuck The Facts latest record Die Miserable. Enjoy.
You folks should know that I love Fuck The Facts. I mean, guitarist Topon Das used to contribute a lot to the site. It seems that in the last few months I have fallen out of touch with Topon, but I never gave up on their music. I have been a hardcore fan of these experimental grinders for a long time now and that is why when they decided to offer up a retrospective summing up ten years in ten tracks, I got excited. Who wouldn’t, am I right? Fuck The Facts have had a wild and wacky decade and they want to share their experiences with you. Their retrospective, appropriately titled Ten Fucking Years 2001-2011 is available for free download in the widget below, where you can also stream it. Yeeeeah, booooy. Get into it. Dig it or die.
So, Fuck The Facts recently released a weird fucking video for the track “A Coward’s Existence” which comes off of the bands recently released full-length Die Miserable. Like I said, the video is weird. I’m not 100% sure I get what’s going on here, but I think I like it. Drink. Drink. Drink. Grind. Grind. Throat cam. Throat cam. Drink. Grind. Puuuuuuke. Check out the video below if you dare. Enjoy.
You all remember the Grinding Aftermath compilation I did with Grind To Death, right? Well, you should! It’s an amazing compilation that took loads of planning and preparation. Me and Alex worked our asses off to get this thing put together, with the donation of cover art by Guger Art, and get it released on time. Well, Alex did some killer shit and got the entire compilation uploaded to Bandcamp, where it can now be streamed and downloaded for free! Featuring well known bands like Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Fuck The Facts and Kill The Clients as well as absolutely killer underground bands like Water Torture, Hivesmasher and Kuntpuncher. Thanks to everyone who has already downloaded and enjoyed this compilation and I hope everyone else who hasn’t checked it out digs it! Stream and download the compilation after the jump!

David Hall, the mastermind behind not only Maryland Deathfest The Movie 1 & 2 but also music videos by bands such as Today Is The Day, Fuck The Facts and Hail of Bullets, among others, has decided to quit the music video business. After he finishes the videos he has on his place, he will be calling it quits, well not completely. He has decided to turn his focus towards what he calls “VHS Albums.” Read on to see what videos Hall has remaining and what a “VHS Album” is.
“Between now and the new year, I’ll be completing new videos for Jucifer, Maruta, Rottenness, Ladder Devils, Vilipend, Rwake, Brutal Truth and Fuck the Facts,” said Hall from his London, Ontario office, “and when the last one is done that’s it – no more music videos for me.”

When I was approached by Topon Das to premier a new Fuck The Facts track on this blog, I can say that I was more than a little excited. I love Fuck The Facts and everything that they have ever done. I’ve listened to their new album Die Miserable nonstop since I received it and when I found out about the Misery EP, which was going to be released the same day, I almost wet myself. I got to catch up with Topon to ask him a few questions about the new albums, the new song and more. Read on and enjoy the premier of “Home” which comes off of the Misery EP. Misery and Die Miserable will be released on October 11th. ~R. Gnarly//Grave Det Eller Dø.
I know I did and now you can as well. The Canadian abstract grinders have uploaded a video to YouTube featuring clips from every song on the bands forthcoming Die Miserable. I’ve had the opportunity to jam this little ditty and it’s extraordinary. Fuck The Facts have been doing this shit for a long time now and their music never gets old. I can literally listen to them over and over again and always find something new that I didn’t catch before. Die Miserable isn’t any different except for the fact that it might be the bands most extreme album to date. It’s sick. check out the album preview below. Go “Like” them on Facebook for constant updates. Die Miserable will be released on October 11th via Relapse Records. Enjoy.
