The Grim

The Grim - Getting Revenge In 'Merica - 1984
The Grim - Face Of Betrayal - 1988
01. The Grim - Getting Revenge In 'Merica, 1984 Vinyl 12" 33 ⅓ RPM Mini-Album
     Mystic Records - MLP MINI-01
02. The Grim - Face Of Betrayal, 1988 Vinyl LP Album
     Alchemy Records, Alchemy Records - CHEM 107, 06-07226
I bought the 2nd album because it was released by the almighty Alchemy Records, whose invincible legacy of Sacrilege BC, Clown Alley, Neurosis, Melvins et al. made subsequent releases mandatory blind buys. Face of Betrayal was indeed another success in the cold crossover department - heavy, dark, catchy with slowed-down Excel or C.O.C.'s Technocracy overtones and without losing that punk edge. Then I tracked down the first LP and was surprised by the rough punk style and sound of a Circle Jerks | Jerry's Kids hybrid. It is a minor US HC classic! And generally speaking, the Grim satisfies fans of Sacred Denial. Old school HC punk crossozer!!!

Execration - Return To The Void

Execration - Return To The Void - 2017 01. Execration - Return To The Void, 2017 CD Album
     Metal Blade Records - 3984-15494-2
I knew it, I forgot an entry in the previous novelty post. Pierced neuron and all that. So here comes the 4th Execration album, another dark diamond of metal. This Void continues on the path of almost progressive metal (read: non-linear and moods shifting, without a sacrifice to undue complexity) set on the previous masterpiece. This release is about matured music and master riffing, and it is another success for these Norwegians. If you enjoyed Morbid Dimensions or Morbus Chron, do not miss it. Triplazering advance of the killer death and thrash mindbanging!

Hot new stuff and hot old stuff! Since yesterday was the 100th celebration of the bolshevik revolution, the timing is relevant to post that Stalinism compilation (whose content is also on the Sakhalin Smile bootleg). Japanese punk always rules! Same thing about that G.I.S.M. 2015 compilation of remastered classics except for the bolshevik part- musically nothing new, only classic stuff with a louder sound level. Better than the originals? Not sure. Now let's consume this Final Bombs EP that is maybe a little less exciting, less energetic than the two albums - still excellent post-82-Discharge worship.
Then for the new stuff, not one but two Ningen Isu releases - the killer new studio album and an incredible double live (did not rip the DVD to audio as the songs are all on the CDs). This band is just more perfect every year, loud rock fans and Melvins must obey. And last but not least, the beast of terraforming doom is back With The Dead: as heavy as and crushing as the first one, maybe more - exemplary gravitational condensation of the largest skeletons!

Deathcult, Deathcult, Deathcult

Deathcult - Cult Of The Dragon - 2007
Deathcult - The Test Of Time - 2013
Deathcult - Beast Of Faith - 2016
01. Deathcult - Cult Of The Dragon, 2007 CD Album
     Karisma Records, Dark Essence Records - KAR030, none
02. Deathcult - The Test Of Time, 2013 CD Album
     Do Or Die Records - DOD-01   
03. Deathcult - Beast Of Faith, 2016 CD Album
     Invictus Productions - IP085
Yesterday was the Montreal day of slaves - exit the retarded fat pig, enter the moronic fucking whore. 42% of the electorate wasted their time on this death cult to their own enslavement, it is for these sad bastards that today's post is erected.
We have here three different bands: malign, evil, tomb-shattering true Norwegian black metal with the guy of Taake, a one-man orchestra paying tribute to old school blackness of Venom/Bathory inclination, and malign, evil, tomb-shattering old-school Possessed/Death influenced death metal. All three are very competent, fast, dirty & aggressive while remaining catchy without sacrificing anything of the abrasion.
My favorite is Deathcult. Bang your head until it falls off!
Taxation is theft.

Tau Cross

Tau Cross - Tau Cross - 2015
Tau Cross - Pillar Of Fire - 2017
01. Tau Cross - Tau Cross, 2015 CD Album
     Relapse Records - RR7305
02. Tau Cross - Pillar Of Fire, 2017 File FLAC Album x 14
     Relapse Records - RR7377
     with 3 bonus tracks
Greatness and sonic contentment! Featuring famous gents from Voïvod (drums) and Amebix (bass/vocals) plus less famous meat from Misery and War/Plague on guitars, Tau Cross deliver a remarkably mastered amount of almost progressive hard rocking heaviness, with of course the exact required dosage of darkness. It does not fall far from the superb, magnificent and grandiose Sonic Mass, with a more direct, less dominating approach. Perfect music for a grey & rainy week! Now that Amebix is dead, let's hope Tau Cross revives that black monolith for a long time.
