Syracuse, NY crossover grind band Fed Ash (featuring former members of Bleak, Trash Burner and Soured Ground) have unleashed their debut release, titled Grief As A Prison, today (August 8) and are offering up a stream of the entire effort. The album is comprised of eight tracks of abrasive grindcore, showcasing Fed Ash‘s penchant for harsh, destructive dissonance and suffocatingly dismal tones. It’s overwhelmingly aggressive, raw and visceral while exuding hardcore, powerviolence, black metal and sludge influences. Check it out after the break.
Finland/Pennsylvania-based mathcore duo Fawn Limbs are set to release their debut single, “A Radiant Mass”, tomorrow, August 3. Comprised of current and former members of Mireplaner, Psyopus and more, Fawn Limbs deliver a grinding, yet groove heavy form of mathcore that brings Solace-era Ion Dissonance and Intervals-era See You Next Tuesday to mind. “A Radiant Mass”, which we are excited to present to you today, illustrates this with its 80-second burst of off-kilter, crushing guitars and spastic riff freakouts. The band said the following of the track: Continue Reading

Grindcore, death metal, and 90s metallic hardcore volatility collide on Sloth Herder‘s forthcoming two-track single, Sacred Coward/Historic Savage, which is due out later this month. Recorded back in February by Dave Kaminsky at Studio Wormwood in Connecticut, this short burst of grimy chaos picks up where 2017’s No Pity, No Sunrise left off and serves as a precursor of what is to come. In anticipation of its eventual release, we at Svbterranean are excited to bring you an exclusive premiere of the single’s B-side, “Historic Savage”. The band offered the following comments regarding the track: Continue Reading
Pennsylvania-based sludge/grind trio Secret Cutter (ex-Oktober Skyline) unleashed their acclaimed, super heavy self-titled effort over four years ago. Now, the impossibly intense band is set to release their crushing sophomore LP, titled Quantum Eraser, this Friday (July 6). The new release not only maintains their abrasive and begrudging tone, along with compelling and unpredictable songwriting, but it’s also tighter, more focused and somehow even heavier than their previous offering.
In this recent interview with Svbterranean, vocalist Ekim, drummer Jared Stimpfl and guitarist Evan Morey discuss the origins of Secret Cutter and the making of Quantum Eraser. They also talk about combining the visceral aggression of grind with the harsh density of sludge (why is “grudge” not a thing yet!?), how they manage to achieve their massive sound as just a three-piece, as well as their approach to unique songwriting and more. Check it out! Continue Reading
Iowan grinders Closet Witch are poised to release their debut, self-titled full-length early this summer. In anticipation for its release, we at Svbterranean are excited to bring you a taste of the chaos to come in the form of the blistering new track “Spell of Giddiness” and its accompanying video. The 37-second track is a quick and violent gut-punch that is characterized by caustic grindcore rampage and the occasional, off-kilter riff. This track is just one of many head-spinners on the forthcoming album. Guitarist Alex Crist said the following of the upcoming record: Continue Reading
