good point DMBM. i was getting at the statement that no good hardcore albums came after 1985, and that AOQ was released in 1988 (or 87?). that was my whole deal.

its a fucking great album though. one of the best in the hardcore scene.

also seems metal RIP woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.

All grindcore bands seem to have an ideology somewhere between American Democrats and anarchists, usually impractical and mechanistic, the kind of liberalism that delivered us to the machine-state in the first place.

Even Godflesh was affected. Sad, really, because it's what got us in this mess, and it won't get us out, so it's like screaming/pissing into the wind.


i wouldnt say ALL. Misery Index seem to have an apathetic viewpoint. i know Magrudergrind and Insect Warfare wouldnt care if nuclear war erupted tomorrow. but a lot of grind bands share this viewpoint.

their advantage over the big politicians, in my eyes, is that they are challenging convention, and do not seek to please mainstream audiences. though in doing so sometimes they end up trying to please the underground.

still, grindcore remains my favorite genre of music, right behind thrash metal.

Assuck is trally great, however I have AIDS and i'd say that Misery Index is better than ANticapital (The band with the same name also crushes, too bad becuase of their ideology, really great guys).


their ideology? im not sure of it. could you explain?

all that aside, Misery Index is a very good release. but then, you cant really go wrong with any Assuck material. not a dud in the bunch.

also, i own 2 albums and an EP from the BAND Misery Index, and ive seen them live. pretty impressive all around (composition, instrumental talent, lyrics, etc). you can tell that theyre really into what their doing. "honest", i like to call it. quality stuff.

...and i think thats exactly why the metal of today is so awful.  It tries to please...


perhaps it could be better if artists focused on making music THEY enjoyed, and that THEY were happy with.

that is what i would like to create someday. if people happen to like it, that's all well and good, but i would foremost like to create music for myself.

Too repetitive? ASSUCK? you cannot be serious. their music constantly changes. they dont stick to a guitar part for more than 10 seconds usually. personally, Assuck is one of my favorite grindcore bands. completely crushing, brutal, nihilistic music.

id go so far as to say Assuck is one of the best grindcore bands there ever was, and ever will be. everyone here should check out "Anticapital". one of the finest grind releases ever put forth.

I imagine people would expect anus.com to be a site catering to anal sex fiends, not the sort of site it actually is.


HAH. that one had me laughing for a bit.

i highly doubt that any one band INTENDS to make music which is inherently boring, their intentions are almost always to please the listener.

we need to find ways to effectively channel that good spirit into the music.

sorry, what do you mean by that?

and yes, IW can get a bit repetitive sometimes. i give them their credit, however, and they are certainly a breath of fresh air in the wake of all of this "scenegrind".

anyone who shuns all video games on the basis of what they may have seen at arcades is no better than the mainstream which they constantly ridicule. the rule works both ways, kids.

i like Meshuggah's early efforts, up to "Chaosphere". that album was largely very same-y. one constant tempo, for pretty much the whole time. it had one or two ok songs, but was pretty unremarkable. "Destroy Erase Improve" is what i consider to be their best.

after "Chaosphere", they degenerated into sludgy, angst ridden, nu-metal "experimentation", of which held about as much interest for me as getting my hand shoved into a trash compactor.

however, hearing tracks from this new album rekindled my interest a bit, perhaps i will check it out.

Ask yourself why there have been no epic hardcore albums since 1985, and no epic grindcore albums since 1992 or so.


i beg to differ, good sir. the Cro-Mags' "Age of Quarrel" was released in 1988, and is a crushing example of hardcore punk infused with thrash metal.

i feel i should also bring attention to good bands within the grindcore scene as well.

http://www.insectwarfare.com/

^ those guys are intense. they mix the best of Napalm Death and Brutal Truth, and come out with a whirlwind of barely controlled grinding madness. definitely a band to watch, if one looks to assign the "flag" of the genre to a single band.

Nasum is also great.


see, all of that Swedegrind (Nasum, Gadget, Rotten Sound, Sewn Shut), isnt necessarily BAD, per se, but the production that each band uses not only makes them sound unbelievably like one another, but it also takes away the "dirty", or "raw" feeling which good grindcore should have. Nasum and their ilk are too clinical, sharp sounding, and overproduced for their own good.

the only grind band ive found out of Sweden that i listen to on a regular basis is Birdflesh. the rest are occasional listens, at best. that region was always better for death/black metal anyway.

the word of the day, gentlemen, is "BORING".
