Grotesque Infestation is a fantastic blog that gathers together early 90's death metal records and old horror movies (like bangers akin to From Beyond) like no other place I've seen. If you like old school and brutal this is the place for you.

New Lows - Harvest of The Carcass

Another shining example of hardcore done right; noisy, no faux aggression, no tough guy 'beatdown' bullshit and no fuckin clean singing. This is a record that opens up like a typical day in Boston; a tumultuous shitfest of pissed screaming (because who wouldn't be pissed that they had to live in Boston). The drums clobber their way through your facial bones while the savage guitars sway and slam across the entire record with enough piss n vinegar to make any typical vocalist fall behind. But that's not the case here; we've got throaty yells, gnarly screams and some great moments that really make their vocalist the alpha dog of this pack. Great hardcore for those of us out there who don't normally touch the stuff.

Been a while since I've updated (without it being removed), so I thought I'd treat you guys to some of the ol' slow'n'grimey. Galaxicon seems to be a relatively young band from anything that I can tell, their earliest material that I can find being from 2010. They've got a nice ethereal doom sound reminiscent of Unearthly Trance and slower High on Fire. But the fun doesn't stop there, they've got some death metal vocals that sneak into the mix and tear shit up; the best example is mid-way through their track 'Rapture of The Deep'. This young band from Tennessee shows a lot of promise so keep an eye on them. Pound some Jack and blast these jams.
