Just found this thread... if you like high-pitched stuff ("cat bands"), Discordance Axis "Jou Hou" and "Inalienable Dreamless" are good albums, I also like As The Sun Sets and the Daughters album "Canada Songs". Some of my friends dig The Locust though I personally am not into them. Puritan is a decent screamo band from central PA (long defunct) with some grind influence. A local band that's done some great black/grind/doom is The Communion - we played several shows with them, although their main guitarist passed away a couple of years ago and I'm not sure what they're up to these days. For lower growls ("dog bands") I love Assuck's "Anticapital" and would recommend it to any fan of death metal or grind, also Broken Hope's "Bowels Of Repugnance" (death/grind), Brutal Truth's "Need To Control" (death? grind?), Napalm Death's "Scum" (forefathers of grind), and if you want really old shit, Swans' "Filth" and "Cop" (forefathers of Napalm Death). -Edit, just saw BAN's list of videos, good call.

I'll have to listen to Alien Crucifixion, never heard them. For odd kind of industrial growly grind, I forgot to mention Gigantic Brain - they only have one album, "The Invasion Discographies", and it's really fun. Also check out Ahumado Granujo. I like them ok - there are a few other bands in that vein too, must check through my collection. Personally I prefer older, crustier stuff, but I can see the appeal. edit: since I last checked up on them, Gigantic Brain has apparently recorded and released some new material. I've gotta check it out.

The music sounded decent, but Rompeprop is better, despite also suffering from having terrible vocals. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

The only Rompeprop I've heard is their split with Tu Carne, and I think I prefer AG. The drummer from my grind band was massively into all this stuff. For slightly more slam, Jig-Ai is good. I give all these bands a pass on their vocals... not too far from Demilich, honestly! Before Cephalic Carnage went all tech, they did some great death grind like Perversions...and the Guilt After, their split with Anal Blast.

Fuck the Facts' last few releases are a better example of technical grind that doesn't forget how to bring it old-school with sliding power chords riffage!!

For modern grind, I prefer stuff like Nasum and Rotten Sound. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

But yeah, you're right, more grind-death than grindcore. I love them up through "Xenosapien". I'd also recommend Ed Gein's album "It's A Shame..." if you find yourself into that death-grind sound: b_VckUxlAgU

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
