There have been quite a few changes for Toronto, ON’s Holy Grinder since our last interview a year ago. Following several member shifts, the noisegrind band now features a revamped line-up, including two bassists and new vocalist Ashley, which brings a newfound energy to Holy Grinder. The result is a more dynamic and intense approach to their raw, visceral sound, as well as an even more chaotic live performance.
In the spirit of change, Holy Grinder decided to remake one of their first songs from their debut record, Eradicate All Scum. Dubbed “Flesh Prison II,” the track has been re-recorded with the new line-up at Topon Das’ (Fuck the Facts) Apartment 2 studio in Ottawa, ON, and is the first taste of their upcoming release, which will follow up 2018’s Cult of Extermination.
“Flesh Prison II” is available to stream for the first time right here on Svbterranean, and members Ei TC and Ashley also took the time to discuss Holy Grinder’s new outlook. They also talk about the impact of the new members on the band and their sound, as well as the shift to more personal lyrical themes, among other topics. Check out Holy Grinder’s “Flesh Prison II” and our interview with Ei and Ashley after the break. Continue Reading
French blackened sludge duo Vous Autres are poised to release their debut full-length, Champ du Sang, on March 1 via Sludgelord Records. Following the band’s 2017 EP, Trente Pièces d’Argent, Champ du Sang sees the band exploring the darker, more haunting aspects of their sound, which is supported by scathing lyrics dealing with the delusions of human nature and the contemporary world.
In anticipation of its release next month, we at Svbterranean bring you an exclusive stream of the record’s sprawling second track, “Pauvre Animal, Simple Pantin”. The six-minute tune features monstrous, caustic doom instrumentation that is swallowed by malevolent, overbearing atmospherics. The song embarks on this cacophonous death march, which is spearheaded by venomous vocals, through most of the track before reaching a deeply melancholic climax. Check it out for yourself below.
