Crusty death metal heavy hitters Mammoth Grinder have emerged from the fog and are preparing to crush skulls. 2018 is already shaping up to be an amazing year for music and I, for one, am super stoked on a ton of new shit. Coming in January, we will get a pummeling dose of death from Texas titans Mammoth Grinder. The bands new album Cosmic Crypt is going to destroy and if you don’t believe me, peep the new track that the band just unloaded called “Superior Firepower.” Prepare. The shit shall hit the fan. Enjoy the track below.
Well. Just read that title over again. Interesting, no? Well, I think so. When it comes to New Jersey grind outfit Pink Mass, this headline is just another walk in the park on a dark, gloomy afternoon. This band has a very over-the-top aspect to their music and it’s fun as hell. They have just unloaded a new track titled “Beastial Sodomizers” which will be released on the bands forthcoming album, Necrosexual, due out on Halloween. Check out the track below. It’s fucking great. Continue Reading
I tell ya, folks. I’ve been pretty pleased with music this year (aside from a certain Memoriam release) and I am fucking pumped for the new All Pigs Must Die record. I absolutely love this band and everything they’ve done. Their new album Hostage Animal will be released at the end of October, but they have unleashed a hell of a track titled “A Caustic Vision,” which you can peep below. It’s fucking heavy. Check it out and don’t sleep. Continue Reading
Hive‘s brand of bleak, concussive hardcore batters, bruises and comes swinging down violently upon listeners’ heads, much like the scythe that graces their album’s cover.
Comprised of members who have served time in various notable metal and hardcore acts, such as Disembodied, Threadbare, 108, among others, this Minneapolis quartet utilizes the skills they have honed over the years to deliver a dark, driving and expertly crafted hardcore album with Parasitic Twin.
Brooklyn hardcore quartet Syndromes (ex-His Hero Is Gone, Masakari) recently premiered their forthcoming self-titled EP via Clrvynt. The four-track effort will officially be released on April 21 via Halo of Flies and can be purchased here. This short but sweet release is a relentless blitzkrieg of darkened crust that frequently conjures downtrodden melodies alongside the bludgeoning hardcore riffs. Check out the release in full after the break.
My first exposure to the bleak, raw sounds of St. Petersburg, Florida’s Weltesser was their 2015 demo. It was a brief, yet impressive display of the band’s penchant for writing stripped down, noisy sludge that slowly erodes the listener with every repetition. Here we are a couple of years later and Weltesser has been snatched up by Prosthetic Records and produced a massive first effort for the label in the form of Crestfallen, which was released via bandcamp on 1/27/17.

Scavengers is an upstate NY crust/hardcore band conceived in early 2016 by current and ex members of First Blood, Recon, Hell Mary, You and I, NY in 64, Lariat and Forgery. As you may have gathered from this (only partial) pedigree, these dudes are not only busy on the music front, but also may have been around the block a time or two. It turns out that is a crucial ingredient in churning out a fully competent and thoroughly blistering 20 minutes of crust laden hardcore, which they have in the form of their debut LP Progress to Oblivion.

With a formidable amalgam of 90s crust, Pacific Northwestern dark hardcore and Swedish d-beat at their disposal, Minneapolis’ Hive create hardcore anthems for the impending apocalypse. Their stampedes of gritty, metallic anguish, which were first captured on their 2015 EP, are a must listen for fans of His Hero is Gone, Cursed and angry music as a whole. The band are poised to release their debut full-length album, titled Parasitic Twin, this April via Crown and Throne Ltd (official street date pending) and we here at Svbterranean have the first official taste of the record.
The first taste of Parasitic Twin comes in the form of “Intruder”, a furious three-minute onslaught of piss and vinegar. Grimy guitars collide head-on with bestial bass lines and pummeling percussion for optimal aural destruction. It’s fast, pissed off and has riffs for days. Need we say more?
