#30 PSYCHOTIC SUFFERANCE

Today's update is Psychotic Sufferance! These dudes are fuckin ill! Crazy legendary band from what I've gathered. You know those bands that do like a TON of splits with virtually any band. This is one of those bands. It's something I've always appreciated about bands like this. It just shows that they aren't lazy and are very motivated to keep writing and constantly grinding out new tunes. It's easy to just make a racket and call it a split, but with these guys-you can honestly tell they care and put a lot of effort into thier work. All while enjoying what they do by having tons of fun.

I was very happy to be able to put this out. A rad as hell one sided full length featuring 18 songs that clock in at around 14 minuets.

50 tapes in total. Some have a blue splatter design where as others have a half tone color of green and orange.

Check em out!

#29 LARVA/BAGHEADS/()/BBTWEOAH

*Original title was "FUCK PINK FLOYD*

Fuck them up their stupid asses. "Oh I'm David Gilmore! Fuckin worship me cause I use to play with Pink Floyd!" "Play Alice in Wonderland and Dark Side of the Moon! They totally sync together!"

I fuckin hate snotty pretentious musicians. Anybody who claims to have talent and brushes anybody else who can't play legatos smoothly or plays in the wrong pentameter key. I don't even know what I'm talking about now.

More noise shit!

Very happy with this release.
I was trying to do constant LARVA releases. Just for fun, and also because I kinda wanted to emulate G.D and Bastard Noise with all the splits they put out within a matter of months It doesn't seem like I have so much free time to make noise and have fun with it.

This was originally supposed to be a series of splits with each band. Stuff came up and called for tapes to be shared and so this came about. A nice and really diverse 4-way noise split. With how well this one turned out I think I might even compile a noise comp on tape soon! Who knows! Time will tell!

The artists here are myself adding up another tally mark with LARVA. about 10 minutes of noisecore/grind.
Vii Caso of Hiroshima Vacation and contributor at Operation Grindcore brings a very nice 5 minuet noize piece. Crazy grind stuff and all tweaked out with crazy distortion and shit. More cyber like. Then we have the Bagheads. Two meth freaks from an undisclosed trailer park.And last but not least is Paul Phipps of Rectal Twat other awesome noise acts. Bringing to the table a heaping 26 minuets of acoustic death metal!

Crazy!!!

So for this I just did 40 tapes. I don't think people are gonna want this. I'm pretty sure this will be up for download for free sometime in the near future even haha, so if you're not into collecting or anything don't bother!

This one was particularly lazy on my part. This was sitting on the queue for quite a while. The cards were stitting on my desk for a few months I believe. I had just needed time to dub the tapes. I was REALLY dreading the dubbing for the Paul Phipps section. One tape at a time would of meant...10+ hours of dubbing. I did these with the duplicator because FUCK QUALITY! and was able to do them in about 3 hours.

Each tape has a nice handmade marking with the saying "U MAD BRO?" on one side and "ESTAS ENOJADO HERMANO?" spanish for "Are these my pancakes?"

Also, pretty geeky on my part but I actually numbered these. 1-40 and I covered each with a lotto style scratcher sticker. A pretty neat thing, in my opinion, just to add some flair-if any-to the tape.

#28 VIOLENT AMERICANS/SWELLBOW

Alrighty! So I'm pretty positive this is the FASTEST I've ever been to compile a release. I had sent the artwork off to the lab about 3-4 days ago and it arrived today. So I figured it be best to start dubbing the tapes up with the new duplicator I got.

*Quick aside on the duplicator...the thing is pretty old. When I say it "works" I mean that very loosely. It works, but it produces VERY raw duplications. Of course I cleaned the heads, very well I might add too. Anyway, I'll just assume since it's pretty old that it won't produce pristine  copies hiss and drop in and fade out and all this other stuff. I really wish I could of experimented with a SORDO or LARVA release to be a guinea pig and see how it would turn out. But using the duplicator just makes stuff roll along SO MUCH FASTER. With a sacrifice for quality, I could keep dubbing tapes one at a time, but it just doesn't seen very efficient in my brain. What can take 2-3 weeks at times (depending on releases) can be done in a matter of a few hours. A worthy sacrifice in my opinion. If you're considering having me do you tapes, please ask me about this. I can very well do them in the duplicator crazy fast. Or if quality is your quest, I can do them one at a time as well still. Just bear with me when it comes to doing them one at a time*

On to the bands.


VIOLENT AMERICANS and SWELLBOW
Two of my favorite local bands at the moment.
Violent Americans especailly since of the amount of work these young lads have been putting in for show organization and such.

Swellbow because they just fuckin rock!

I put out the V/A demo a while back and the material presented here is ALOT better.
A lot more refined, more chaotic and spastic and awesome! Great hardcore that will oblierate any two-stepping poser that tries to step up.

Swellbow answer back with 5 rad as fuck songs. If I had a skateboard I'd be ripping shit up to these dudes!

#27 CORRUPT HUMANITY/SHANGKUAN LINGFENG

And so the new year begins with the newest release.

A raging split between two rad as fuck grind bands.

Corrupt Humanity is a one man band. If it's one thing I've always admired is single member bands. It just seems that they have more talent and patience and more positive energy of motivation to be willing to record tracks for every single guitar/bass/drums/secondguitars (sometimes) and vocals to top it off.

Anyway, in this split Corrupt Humanity deal us 8, count em! EIGHT tracks of rad grinding obliteration!


On the flip side we have SHANGKUAN LINGFENG, a band I was unfamiliar with up until agreeing to put this out. These dudes are rad as hell though! Great raw and angry grind. When it comes to grind for me the more raw it is the better. I appreciate bands who get clean recordings. But when it comes to Grind, I don't imagine a clean pressed, clean cut band. I imagine a bunch of dirty raw grinders who drink piss for breakfast. Maybe i'm thinking of crusties...anyway.

BOTH BANDS ARE RAD AS FUCK!

Check em out here and there!
