Napalm Death - Scum

If Scum sounds like two different albums by two different bands, that’s because it is. Napalm Death recorded the first side in August 1986 as a three-piece,1 then shelved recording for nine months before entering the studio again in May 1987 with no returning members other than drummer Mick Harris,2 whose obsession with blast-beat percussion – a new thing back in the mid-80s – characterized the frenetic speed of Scum and, by way of history, the entire grindcore genre. 888 more words

Cloud Rat - Blind River

There’s something of a 21st-century riot grrl scene in grindcore and punk rock that’s been going on the past several years. Bands such as Appalachian Terror Unit and Fuck the Facts1 are fronted by women and typically feature feminist and intersectional whose ferociousness is complemented by the genre’s musical brutality. 620 more words
