INFESTER “To the Depths, in Degradation” death metal re-release review and youtube stream

Re-releases of “best kept secret” type of old bands, usually package attractively mediocre quality content using 80’s/90’s nostalgia and vinyl fetishism. Even when the music is good, most such bands were mere clones back at the day, therefore their (re-) Read more

NECROBLOOD “Collapse of the Human Race” black/death metal album review and bandcamp stream

Parisian old-school metal band NECROBLOOD have penetrated violently my musical microcosm back in 2011. They have done so with the best credentials that an underground metal band could possibly have according to my book: a debut self-titled 7”EP released by Read more

KIRI KIRI KIRI – 2xmixtape free download

Posted on by Vassago in Grindcore, Music | Leave a comment

kiri kiri kiriA mindless,formless,senseless morass of noise and glitch: KIRIKIRIKIRI featuring UK Liverpool artist Rob Morris on mixing duties,Finland metal prodigy Frans ‘Finowa’ Aalto on guitars and vocals,and Australian Sam Bean (Berzerker, The Senseless, ex-Mithras) on guitars. The old material is harsh and abrasive screechy metal electronic hell,with the stand out track being “Don’t Call Me A Liar”,and the kind ofproduction values that made old-school black metal famous.The new material is even more glitchy and mindfucked, featuring smooth production and moments that hit like a wrecking-ball wrapped in velvet.

Their music has influences from a variety of different but related genres such as Grindcore, breakcore, speedcore, sludge, doom, metal, and extreme music in general. One of the UK’s underground scene finest!

They offer 2 Mix tape albums on their web site for free (which you can download here) but for those who wants to have a taste of what they are about to listen here is the song “666×10” from their Mixtape 1 2010 release.

KIRI KIRI KIRI are unsigned and unaffiliated and they like it that way!
