Motherfucking Oblivionized, British spazzy-tech-grinders, are always on top of their shit. Last year they released a stellar EP on Grindcore Karaoke and then I told you they’d be releasing a few new splits this year. Well, the good fellows have unleashed a killer new track that you should all be streaming right fucking now! Continue reading »

Who doesn’t love Total Fucking Destruction? This band is one of the great grind acts that I never get tired of. Not only is their music fast and aggressive, it’s quite poetic and beautiful. Well, if you are a fan of Total Fucking Destruction or if you’re new to the whole thing, you’ll be excited to check out their new EP! Continue reading »
As I said in my post about French band Haut & Court, when I find something that completely blows my mind my first instinct is to post about it. It’s happened again, people! I constantly check Grindcore Karaoke because J. Randall is always releasing new shit from killer bands. I mean, at least a few times a week I am stunned by something amazing on his label. Today I clicked on an album based on the bands name alone: Golden Bats. Continue reading »
I have been a big fan of In Her Rotten Cheek ever since I heard the solo project on Grindcore Karaoke. Nicholas always has a different vibe with each of In Her Rotten Cheek‘s albums and I have loved every single one. If I had to pick, up to this point my favorite would be In The Beginning (check it out here) but I have yet to get a full taste of the new album Last Drinks which should be dropping soon. With Last Drinks looming, Nicholas has given me the opportunity to premiere a new track off of it called “Noisy Emo Fuck,” which should catch you by name alone.
By a ricochet means of communication, I first found out about Cloud Rat from AA head, Ross Gnarly, who in turn found out about them from J. Randall’s(ANb, Japanese Torture Comedy Hour) independent noise/grind/hip-hop/powerviolence label, Grindcore Karaoke. Cloud Rat play a frenzied style of grindcore that borderlines between the brittle melodics of 90s screamo and the caustic violence of black metal. Following up on their devastating split with Republic Of Dreams is their upcoming full length album, Moksha(out Feb. 2013 via Halo Of Flies Records), which roughly translates into Sanskrit to mean either “liberation” or “release”, a definite catharsis and liberation from stress for me personally. A track off of Moksha, entitled “Aroma” is currently streaming exclusively over at Halo Of Flies official site. Stream that here and Cloud Rat’s previous full length albums(one is actually a compilation), available free(and as vinyl here) via Grindcore Karaoke below. Details on the album are poised to be released soon as well as pre-order information. We’ll keep you posted. Stay grind.
Not one. Not two. No, three fucking records! That’s right, grind legends Agoraphobic Nosebleed will be releasing three new albums in the future, one after the other. Each album will feature master-of-craft Scott Hull and either J. Randall, Kat Katz or Richard Johnson, depending on the album you’re listening to. This is fucking amazing news. Three new ANb albums to destroy each and every one of your senses. Are you pumped yet? Because there is more! Agorableed will also be releasing their second annual holiday flexi disc for Decibel Magazine this Christmas season (the first, A Joyful Noise can be downloaded on J.’s label here for free). Fucking ANb everywhere! Yes!
I posted about my homie Mickey Napalm‘s last release Napalm The God back in May and if you though the dude was just chilling, you were dead wrong. Dude has been mad busy lately. Not only did he release a hip-hop split with yours truly*, he also recently released his new solo album Stream Of Unconsciousness on Grindcore Karaoke. Mickey is definitely on top of his shit on this new album. Every single track fucking kills. Dude is making it really hard to make a year-end list. Check out a full album stream/free download of Stream Of Unconsciousness after the jump and be sure to get the rest of Mickey‘s tunes. Continue reading »
This is a new monthly column here at American Aftermath in which the staff tells you what we have been listening to and what albums we will keep in constant rotation. For me, my entire life revolves around music so I am constantly listening to it. Any kind and all kinds, so lets kick this thing off the right way.

Wừu are a crazy awesome grind band from Vietnam. I was introduced to them via Alex from Grind To Death and I loved them right from the start. Their music is fast, pissed off to the core and whacky beyond belief. The band has been working on new material for a bit now and I have been getting very excited for said material. The band recently posted the above video clip which includes a new track called “Pleiku!” which I am assuming will be from the bands forthcoming release. Exciting! Stream Wừu‘s 2011 release 888 after the jump. Enjoy. [Continue...]
If any of you have figured out how my brain works yet, then you’ll know that I have a penchant for chaotic, spastic, violent grind and hardcore. The more vicious the better, so when I was introduced to False Light by my homie VII Caso in his post on CVLT Nation. VII told me to check out this band, so I did. Holy shit. My mind was blown instantly and I keep coming back to it.
This six-song self-titled release absolutely destroys any pre-conceived notions that you may have. This is not your standard hardcore/powerviolence/grind band. This band is powerful, disgusting and beyond pissed off. This is raw, filthy muck that I fucking love. There is no way any fan of sludgy grinding madness can go about not listening to this. Thank you, VII. Much love, bruh. Stream False Light below and download it for free.
I have talked about Water Torture quite a bit on this here blog. I love this band and their aggressive approach to bass and drum powerviolence. I recently posted about their free live release and now the band has released their brand new 7″ SHELLFIRE! which can be downloaded for free or purchased on 7″ vinyl. Or both! Regardless of how you want your fix, you must hear this album.
Brutally fast and destructive grind with sludgy passages, what is there not to love? If I can conform one of you Aftermathletes into a Water Torture fan, I think I have succeeded at something. Stream the album below and purchase the physical item here. Enjoy, I know I did.
You guys know I am an Oblivionized fanboy by now, basically because they are killer dudes and their tunes are fucking destructive. I have loved all of their music they have released and now I learn that the band is planning to release three new splits!
No definite date has been given to any of these splits, but Zac (vocals) announced via an interview with Decibel Magazine that the band will be releasing splits with Plague Widow, Fuck The Facts and Human Cull. So these Brits are planning to release three splits with three bands from three different countries. This sounds like the fucking trifecta to me. Amirite? Check out Oblivionized‘s last EP which was released on Grindcore Karaoke in March below and get stoked. Check out the full dB interview here.
You remember when I posted about my boy Mickey Napalm? Well Mickey has now put out his debut album Napalm The God on Grindcore Karaoke. Mickey‘s work has appeared on Grindcore Karaoke before in the forms of Clorox Bong and his mainstay project Infected Womb, so I knew he would be getting this out on there eventually.
This album is fucking great. Mickey has a killer flow and he doesn’t disappoint. Check out a stream of Napalm The God below and download it for free. Enjoy.
I’ve known about No Anchor for a while now, ever since they released Real Pain Supernova on Grindcore Karaoke. I didn’t get into the band until a few months ago but their sludgy, deep presence was something that I was very impressed by. Apparently a few days ago, No Anchor released a new EP titled Rope / Pussyfootin’ on Grindcore Karaoke and it fucking slays. Rope / Pussyfootin’ takes where Real Pain Supernova left off and crushes reality by being even more amazing.
Still, I don’t know where to categorize No Anchor, but for now I will just file them under “un-fucking-believable.” Sound good? Check out the new EP below and be sure to grab the vinyl so that you can hear the fourth track that is not available for streaming. GET ON IT!
