Because this shit is super awesome. Happy 2013, everybody!!
ARE YOU LISTENING TO THIS?! WHY AREN’T YOU LISTENING TO THIS?! GO LISTEN TO THIS RIGHT NOW!!
Holy shit, I am so excited about this album. I preordered the LP yesterday before even listening to the stream. Let me tell you, I was right to do it. This album is amazing. Ridiculously amazing. I regret having missed them play the last time they were here in NYC.
God damn, Mel Mongeon’s vocals on this shit are so brutal. She out-metals nearly every male vocalist I can think of except for maybe Erik Rutan. MAYBE.
If you’re a fan of grind and you’ve never heard Fuck The Facts, prepare to have your face blown off, your wallet lightened, and all your stress blasted out of you by Montréal’s finest.
This might be one of the most perfect slices of electrogrind insanity I’ve heard in a while and I feel compelled to share it with you knowing full well that basically everyone who listens to it will hate it. But if I reach even one person who understands the genius of this, I will have accomplished something wonderful for the future of humanity.
Below is Agoraphobic Nosebleed’s Pharmaceuticals II, presented under the moniker ANBRx which they use when the music is of a more electronic nature. Typically, Agoraphobic Nosebleed sounds like grind made with drum machines, whereas ANBRx sounds like electronic music made into grind. Does that make sense? To me it does, so that’s ok. Listen and be afaid:
Did you listen on shitty speakers? Bullshit. Do it again on a good set of speakers and get back to me.
If for whatever reason that iframe above is behaving badly, you can listen to and download the record free here: ANBRx Pharmaceuticals II.
As I am sure you all know by now, Seth Putnam, lead vocalist from legendary, asshole, grindcore band Anal Cunt, has died. AC (as they were known around people who find the word “cunt” offensive) were a profound influence in my life as a young metal head. Here were a bunch of guys making absurdly heavy, dissonant grind who obviously didn’t take themselves seriously at all. This stood in stark contrast to the other guys who were making absurdly heavy, dissonant metal who obviously took themselves pretty damn seriously indeed. If you’re a metal head (and I hope you are), then you know what I am talking about.
To celebrate the life and career of a man who wrote some of my favorite under 1 minute long songs, here is a list of some of my favorite Anal Cunt song titles in no particular order.
Here are a couple of jams from Anal Cunt’s weird-as-fuck career.
Oh, Anal Cunt, I wouldn’t trade all the years of hilarious song titles you’ve given for anything. You will be missed, even if you were a fucked up, misanthrophic, junkie asshole. RIP Seth.
