Okay I distance myself from uploading recently released records. That´s why I just have some recommendations for you. At the moment these records run on heavy rotation here:
First off, THE ARSON PROJECT proves that the grindcore crown simply belongs to Sweden!
A hard cometition for ROTTEN SOUND. High end death-grind as you expect from a Swedish band. The vocals sound more agressive and less death-metalish than the ROTTEN SOUND vocal works. Power it up records got their hands on a VERY promising act here.
Okay the LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER album called "Extinction" has already been released in 2007 but maybe some of you grind maniacs have missed this great album. You may have recognised them from their massive amount of split releases. If you dig high quality old school grind like old NAPALM DEATH or even CATHETER (who have a new singer btw. which they share a great split 7" with), then you have to check out LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER. I love their 80s Trash Metal guitar sound! Awsome grind attack from spain with members of legendary grind gods DENAK. Great cover artwork and nice gatefold cover, also released by Power it up.
Yesterday I received the new SSS album called "The dividing line". No let down here. I love the 1st album of this British skate maniacs and this new one is at least as good as their 1st one. Better? I don´t know yet. Incredible mix between 80s Trash metal and hardcore. If you like MUNICIPAL WASTE or BONES BRIGADE you should check them out. The Lp contains a bonus 7" with a sticker that advices you to support independent stores. Strange message when you are on EARACHE...
If you like to sell or trade their 1st 7" called "Cliff Burton" get in touch!
And now for something completely different: Do you dig modern classic? Well I do! One of my favourite composer is OLAFUR ARNALS from Island. I listend to his 1st album called "Eulogy for evoloution" a lot. This makes me relax, I just love it. The new mini album (Cd/10") "Variations of Static" gives me the heebie-jeebies again. Like his album this mini album mixes classical music and discreet modern drum beats. OLAFUR already composed some intros for some Metal bands. If you are open minded take my advice and give it a listen.
