2017 Highlights

I got heaps of exciting new stuff this year, mainly thanks to Australia’s #1 label/distro RADICAL BLARGHST but haven’t had much chance to actually listen to stuff for a variety of reasons so this list is very short and is mostly CD’s and digital.

Top New Listens For 2017…
ASBESTOSISIS – Eaten Back In Time CD
AUTOPHAGIA – Postmortem Human Offal re-issue LP
RAWHEAD – Mortuary Mutilations demo
STERBEHILFE – Discography CD
CATASEXUAL URGE MOTIVATION – A Journey Into the Morbid Mind of Serial Murderers Vol. 3 – Fantasy Wants Victim CD
CATASEXUAL URGE MOTIVATION – A Journey Into the Morbid Mind of Serial Murderers Vol. 4 – Necrotronica CD
BLUE HOLOCAUST – Carnage EP + Gorified Rehearsal tape
TECH ITCH RECORDINGS PRESENTS – Resist:ed One digital
BRAKKEN – Defiance digital
LIMEWAX – Scars On The Horizon (2017 Remaster) digital
EATBRAIN podcast
FILTHCAST podcast

Even when releasing old/recycled recordings C.U.M. are undoubtedly still one of the most amazingly dark and unique-sounding bands of all time! Same with Autophagia. It’s an old album but still completely blows me away with it’s chaotic wildness, perfect riffs and demented vocals.

Top Live Bands/Acts 2017:
ASBESTOSISIS, BLARGHSTRAD, HEXTAPE, PREGNANCY, RAWHEAD, HANGOVERDOSE, OCTAVE PUSSY, ALL CATS GO TO HEAVEN, DIPLOID, DERAILMENT, BODY MELT, GOLDEN OAK, HARDATA, ROBIN FOX & SEAN BAXTER, GYR/SECTORAL, SETE STAR SEPT, RYOSUKE KIYASU, NECROMIST, AUSTRALOPITHECUS

Finally Melbourne gets a brutal new noisecore band in ALL CATS GO TO HEAVEN. Can’t wait to see more from them in the future! Full points also to ASBESTOSISIS for continuing to be “Australia’s Worst-Sounding Band”, always delivering the most horrific and ugly gore filth in town.  “Heaviest Set of 2017” is a tie between PREGNANCY and RAWHEAD at the LxPxPx show at the Tote recently, farrrrrrrrrrk maaaaaan.

Other 2017 Highlights:
Melbourne grind nerds continuing to make and support awesome music; touring Japan with YENDO BRUUC; playing LOTS OF BANDS in Newcastle again; finally releasing the HOLY BONER album and split with STRANGLEWANK; recording and releasing stuffs with SPEW BALLOON, SPASMOSLOP, ESP MAYHEM etc.; LxPxPx tour, KIYASU tour; collabing with SETE STAR SEPT and HAGAMOTO in Japan; all the kick-arse acts who played DISCO MULTIVERSE; enjoying the finest imported noisy music from the RADICAL BLARGHST distro; “ALLTHESTARSTHEYBLEEDTOGETHER” virtual reality/live performance collaboration, COLOSTOMY BONER collabs; noisecore open mics; Zev’s flyers/artwork, goregrind in general, morticianwave.

A truly bonkers weekend of grind/noisy music coming up! Massive cheers’s to homeboy BEAN for almost single-handedly organising these superb line-ups!

HOLY BONER/STRANGLEWANK split is out!

RAD14: HOLY BONER // STRANGLE WANK – Split 3″ CD-R
OUT NOW @ RADICAL BLARGHST!
AUD$3+postage

Double Whammy of Wild Blasting Noisecore Nonsense!!

“HOLY BONER from Melbum excrete out 5x thick, meaty, juicy slabs of speaker cone destroying noisegrind devastation that’ll simultaneously punch you in the guts and crumple your cranium into a horrid mush. Handmade instrument cleverness is counteracted by primitive sonic bludgeonment and barbaric bursts of hamfisted noise spatulation.
Blokes from SFHS, CLOGGED, KLUNK, DRONGO + many more!

STRANGLE WANK from Newy/Woy Woy chunder out 9x trax of noisy as fark, punk as fark, fun as fark, bangin’ boombox brutality. Outta control punk bravado gets choked out by vicious bursts of semi-musical masturbatory noisecore freakouts in a whirly wind of bombastic barefoot harshenings.
Blokes from Obat Batuk, Hacked To Chunks + many more!”
