Antigama, "Zeroland" Antigama
Zeroland
Selfmadegod Records
2005
Dang, now that's what I call a palate cleanser. My review stack has a little of everything, from black metal to off the wall aggro and back again, and when things get a little too hairy I like to shave it all off with a rusty grindcore razor. I don't know what feeds the...

Antigama, "Discomfort" Antigama
Discomfort
Selfmadegod Records
2005
I love violent records. The new wave of commercialized fodder that is calling itself "grind" needs to hear this. Antigama unloads 12 point blank shotgun blasts here which all flow seemlessly together into one lumbering beast, and amid the expected Napalm Death worship is a profound affinity for the bizarre as shown on the genuinely scary noises heard...

Catheter, "Dimension 303" Catheter
Dimension 303
Selfmadegod Records
2005
Catheter is blinding crustcore from Denver whose interests consist of smashing, bashing, and generally grinding your head in. These guys don't really break any new ground, but they do punish all who dare listen which is really all I ever want from a crust band anyway. The vocals aren't growly enough to really make this grind but that...

Daymares, "Can't Get Us All" Daymares
Can't Get Us All
Selfmadegod Records
2007
Daymares hails from Poland and this is their debut full length. Right off the bat it is not possible to listen to this band and not think of L-G Petrov on the Morningstar album. The band is playing what some people have labeled Death Rock. Modern era Entombed comes to mind as does The Crown and Scum. It comes in...

Daymares, "Can't Get Us All" Daymares
Can't Get Us All
Selfmadegod Records
2007
Daymares mix hardcore, punk and death n’ roll in equal parts to create some simple, but very easy to listen to, ass-rockin’ tunes on their debut Can’t Get Us All. It really should matter that most of the songs sound nearly the same, but because of the band’s unending reservoir of energy and the occasional surprise tempo change, it...

Drugs of Faith, "Drugs of Faith" Drugs of Faith
Drugs of Faith
Selfmadegod Records
2006
If you like your grindcore raw, caustic, and crusty with a hint of sludge, Drugs of Faith are your new favorite band. They just don't make 'em like this (that often) anymore. What we have here on this self-titled EP are 8 tracks of pure agression that run a little over 15 minutes, some of which appear on earlier demo releases....

Herman Rarebell, "Too Late for Peace" Herman Rarebell
Too Late for Peace
Selfmadegod Records
2006
Whooo hoo! I got in my car last night, determined to make a run to Green's for some decent ales (Green's has a far superior selection than most of the package stores around here) and needed some fun, aggressive music to power me down the road and in to the arms of Young's Special London Ale. ...

Incarnated, "Pleasure of Consumption" Incarnated
Pleasure of Consumption
Selfmadegod Records
2006
Meat... bloody meat, in fact... as the album art is a winner any day. So props to Poland's Incarnated for adding to my collection of notable bloody chunks of meat. Given the meaty nature of the album art, I was fully expecting either some hideously deformed vegan grindcore or adverts from the Meat Council....

Myopia, "Enter Insectmasterplan" Myopia
Enter Insectmasterplan
Selfmadegod Records
2007
Myopia is a Polish technical deathrash act influenced by the likes of Extol, Atheist, and Anata, although I wouldn’t put this band in that league at this point in time. Their sound is familiar, but to their credit, they mix their influences wisely and never come off as a copycat. They know their way around their instruments and showcase a...

Third Degree, "Outstay" Third Degree
Outstay
Selfmadegod Records
2005
Poland continues to export heavy metal, and we're not talking about toxic mud from the Black Triangle. No, this stuff is even more deadly and viscous than polluted sludge. It has it's origins in the awesome crucible of Napalm Death, raised on a steady diet of pummeling, relentlessly grinding guitars, and once rendered into a...

Toxic Bonkers, "Progress" Toxic Bonkers
Progress
Selfmadegod Records
2007
Polish grinders Toxic Bonkers are back with their fourth full-length release and second for the Selfmadegod label. TB is one of those bands that has had more line-up issues than they have recorded output, so it comes as no surprise that between recording and releasing this thing they replaced bassist Grela with a youngster named Veedmo. So the bass you’re...

Toxic Bonkers, "Seeds of Cruelty" Toxic Bonkers
Seeds of Cruelty
Selfmadegod Records
2005
First of all what can I say other than I love the name, whatever it means. I think the name can be explained by the fact that these guys first language isn't English which leads to some awkward lyrics on the album. I'm not going to rag on them about this though since they're English is still several...

Wojczech, "Sedimente" Wojczech
Sedimente
Selfmadegod Records
2005
Decent German grind/hardcore a la His Hero Is Gone. "Sedimente" is a thrash assault with the requisite dissonant chords, alternating growl/screech vocals and sudden change-ups. And the drummer must have either some really beefy arms or the endurance of a race horse, because he's often playing faster and for longer than the His Hero Is Gone guy. (Props to Stephan...

XXX Maniak, "Harvesting the Cunt Nectar" XXX Maniak
Harvesting the Cunt Nectar
Selfmadegod Records
2006
So, an EP consisting of thirty-one tracks? Yeah, take a guess at what XXX Maniak play? Harvesting the Cunt Nectar (best title ever, only overshadowed by track 13, “A Knife Called Pussylicker”), is completely deranged death grind with a penchant for drum machines, thirty-seven different vocal deliveries, and becoming a glimmer in the eye of feminist movements everywhere. More or...
