𝗘𝗦𝗣 𝗠𝗮𝘆𝗵𝗲𝗺 Synth core? Electro Grind? The Limewire genre category that was just called “undefinable”? New vocalist, Cher Tan’s (Grimalkin/Spiteward ADL) blood curdling voice and articulate cynicism seem right at home in the ESPM soup, and a SPICY soup it is!
𝗖𝗮𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰 𝗚𝗿𝗶𝗽 NIN, and Multiple Man walk into a bar. It’s not a joke, but you can’t remember ever having this much fun before. CG is the dark EBM/Industrial project of Naarm based, non binary artist Scud Viney.
First ESPM gig in ages, and our first gig with Cher on vocals! We’ll be playing a bunch of brand new songs, and they’re more wild than ever. Including future hits like “The One With The Absurdly Long Blast Parts” and “The Slabber” (slam + gabber = slabber)!!
Also – new outrageous Bloodsportswear shirts! If you love copyright infringement, robots, and excessive sleeve prints, you’re in for a treat!

First ESPM show in a while… Thanks Voice Imitator for having us on their residency!
SHITGRINDER are Brisbane’s leanest and meanest killing machine, straight up no frills grinding fury with their own distinct sound. They just put out a shit-hot LP and are firing on all cylinders.
Helping light the fuse are:
BLOODRULE – finally coming out of a 3 year hiding to belt out some of the hardest death-metallized PV mosh this side of Boston Tea Stop.
EXECUTION – Melbourne’s most manic hardcore punk right now, a heart attack delivered via obsession with Italy’s unique brand of punk berserkerism.
DIPLOID – who just get uglier and more intense with each show. A dark as hell, heavy as shit off-kilter noise/punk/grind/doom cacophony/rapture.
ESP MAYHEM – An evil klown synth-grind headache of combative blast and confused stabs at undanceable disco peanuttery.
Saturday September 8th at the Last Chance Rock N’ Roll Bar where the revelry or misery need never end. Get there at 8, stay til humiliation drives you back to your stinky hovel!

This will probably be the last ESP MAYHEM Melbourne show for a while cause Christoph’s moving to Brisbane soon so come on down! I think we’ll have CD’s and maybe shirts for sale as well…
Two tracks from the upcoming ESP MAYHEM demo CD, coming out soon!
