Takafumi Matsubara Returns on Retortion Terror/Invidiosus Split

September 29, 2017 J. Andrew Zalucky

In 2014, Gridlink unleashed one of the most ferocious, innovative and refreshing grindcore albums of all time, Longhena. However, the well-deserved fanfare and critical accolades were severely tempered by the news that guitarist Takafumi Matsubara was suffering from severe inflammation and infection of the brain.

December 14, 2016 Shawn Macomber

“Works fine, but looks a little beat up due to being my main bass during Brutal Truth’s career in the early 90s.”

Rich 4-string bass extreme music trailblazer and living heavy metal legend Danny Lilker — revisit our “Better Living the Danny Lilker Way” for a reminder of the man’s unquestionable supremacy — deployed on such landmark Brutal Truth grinders as Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses and Need To Control as well as S.O.D.’s 1992 Live at Budokan.

Cannibal Accident: What More Is There To (Grind) Say?

May 10, 2016 Daniel Lake

What is a Cannibal Accident?  How could it happen?  Well, their music sounds like their album art looks – like a ghoul-possessed intestinal tract giving violent birth to even more grisly demon-innards, rending flesh without end.  If you’re gonna gore-grind, this is how you should do it:  phlegmy-wet and funny as hell.  Listen right here and tell us we’re wrong.

All Your Heroes Dead? Grind to the UK’s Oblivionized and Razoreater

September 12, 2014 Daniel Lake

We at Decibel Magazine wish to apologize for not doing enough to support the development and dissemination of grind.  By including occasional articles about other forms of heavy music, some of which include discernible tempos and recognizably human vocals, we have polluted the “scene” (which died 15 years ago, though our anger about it keeps…

Live Review: Napalm Death, London Underworld, 16th December

December 19, 2011 Jonathan Horsley

Just around the corner from the Camden Underworld, the BrewDog bar is exhibiting all the signs that tonight’s show is going to be over-subscribed despite Napalm Death’s much-anticipated and completed new album, Utilitarian, in cold storage until the New Year. The Scottish independent brewery’s own titular tribute to the Dead Kennedys’ anti-fascist anthem, the 7.8%…
