Hey guys, I've decided to only try to keep track of one blog, instead of the apparently impossible task of keeping two up at the same time. I'll only be posting things on my other blog, chubbymix. I'll be re-posting a lot of this material over there for my friends that only look at that one and never really bothered with this one... So please excuse the massive redundancies.



I've been slacking on uploading things due to a few internet connectivity issues. I hope to be able to get the updates going again on a more regular basis sometime soon. Until then, just check out the links on the side, they've all got great stuff for you to listen to.

Here we have another release by legendary Man Is The Bastard! This comp features tracks recorded in '92, '93, and some unreleased stuff. The tracks have been remastered to kick your ears in... This is probably my favorite MITB release, despite Power Electronics not really being my cup of tea. Either way, prepare to be pulverized.


Crucial Unit - Moshzilla

Crucial Unit
"Moshzilla" (2001)
Fastcore / Crossover
Track List:
1. Teabag God

8. End Result Of Drinking Too Much Iced Tea
9. Bonus Track
10. Sneakers
11. Freegan Reich

Here we've got my favorite Crucial Unit release! Since I didn't introduce them before, Crucial Unit is a guitarshredding Metal-loving Fastcore band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Their albums are peppered with well-placed blast beats, some yell-alongs, and crossover flavor that get your head bobbing. The album is full of hilarious, though sometimes serious, lyrical content with enough speed to satisfy that no-toothed amphetamine head that lives under the bridge. So invite him over, slip the record on, and prepare to be robbed blind while trying to find the right speed to headbang to the crossover riffs and time changes.


Mind Eraser - Glacial Reign

Mind Eraser
"Glacial Reign" (2006)
Power Violence / Grindcore

10. Deviant Sadistic
11. Time Served (And What You Leave Behind)
12. Juggling Anxieties

As promised, here is the next installment of the Mind Eraser catalog: 2006's "Glacial Reign." Compared to "Cave," the vocals are harsher, the whole album sounds a bit more Metal-tinged, and they really worked the slow/fast contrasts to fuck your day up. Feel the hate, motherfuckers.


Hellnation - Cheerleaders For Imperialism

"Cheerleads for Imperialsm" (2000)
Power Violence / Fastcore
Track List:
1. Barricade
2. Against The Grain
3. Charged Up

25. Pave Your Grave
26. Consumer Might
27. Advice
28. Economic Survival
29. Kiss Of Death

Ok... This is straight up some of the fastest punk-style shit you'll find. Hellnation's first release was in 1990, so they know what they're doing, and they do it fucking well. Ten years after their conception, they came out with this 29 track warp-speed nuke of an album on Slap-A-Ham that will obliterate damn near anything you previously considered "high speed" or "high intensity." Punk-ass hyper guitars, blasting drums, hateful sociopolitical lyrics, throat-destroying screeching vocals served up by the drummer, and (in this recording) Chris Dodge (you know who he is) filling in on bass duties. You just can't go wrong. "This is punk rock not the Boy Scouts."


Municipal Waste - Waste 'Em All

Municipal Waste
"Waste 'Em All" (2003)
Track List:
1. The Executioner - Sweet Attack
2. Mutants Of War
3. Knife Fight
4. Drunk As Shit
5. Death Prank
6. Substitute Creature
7. Waste 'Em All
8. Toxic Revolution
9. I Want To Kill The President
10. Thrash, Don't Mind If I Do
11. Dropped Out
12. Blood Hunger
13. Jock Pit
14. The Mountain Wizard

Superbly executed Crossover/Thrash and now-legendary live shows (boogieboard included) makes this the perfect record to put on while you're skating, drinking, getting high, practicing your future 360 boogieboard stage-dives on some unsuspecting nerds, or just driving to your mom's house for Thanksgiving dinner. Hailing from Virginia, The Waste have been ripping it up since 2002. This is their first LP... Before they got clean-cut (and possibly robotic) Dave Witte to be their (semi)organic drum machine. I hope you like parties, mutants, beers, and weed.


Otophobia - Malignant

"Malignant" (2002)
Grindcore / Crust
Track List:
1. Drink And Go Home
2. Welcome Home
3. The Day The Sky Fell

7. Axbxcx = Fukkyou
8. Hardcore Kids Have The Coolest Tattoos
9. Year Of The Buffoon
10. Thulsa Doom
11. Destroy Vaus
12. Lunar Positions And The New Age Escapists
13. Curse Humanity
14. Toolbox
15. Play It Again Sam
16. The Huddled Masses Can Suck Our Asses
17. Twenty Years
18. Sway Alone
19. God Bless This Mess
20. Arms Race 2000
21. Magellan

These guys from Philadelphia like to mix it up track-to-track. You've got your blistering Grindcore blitzes (two tracks ~10 seconds) and your raging Crust ballads (one track is ~4 mins). Fortunately for us, they can pull both off beautifully. Go find your Phobia shirts, put your dreads in a bun, and get ready to hate everyone in the scene. This was the last release on Slap-A-Ham, so you know it's gotta be good.

29. In Can Sense Your Cheese
30. Think Tank Killer
31. New Toilets For Tomorrow
32. Think Tank Killer

Heavy bass-driven sociopolitical first-wave Power Violence masters. They coined the term we've all come to love, which should tell you something about how influential and innovative they are. You've got your 10G gutwrenching sludge to fast-paced punk and occasional blast-bursts... Add some harsh noise and sweet Jazzy bass riffs to top it all off. This is a Comp. with the "Sum Of The Men" LP, their "A Call For Consciousness" 7'' and a few splits. If you haven't heard these guys, you should. Right now.


Terrorizer - World Downfall

"World Downfall" (1989)
Track List:
1. After World Obliteration
2. Storm Of Stress
3. Fear Of Napalm
4. Human Prey
5. Corporation Pull-In
6. Strategic Warheads
7. Condemned System
8. Resurrection
9. Enslaved By Propaganda
10. Need To Live

LA based seminal Grindcore of the best variety, none of that boring shit. This album has great Death Metal style riffing mixed in and a solid machine-gun drumming that will send chronic headbangers straight to the hospital. These guys ripped it up with this album and decided to give it a rest... UNTIL NOW (or actually, just last year)! It looks like Terrorizer has decided to get back together and released an album in 2008, which I haven't heard yet. I hope they haven't forgotten how to make eardrums bleed.
