Pus – Pus (2011)

Pus – Pus (2011)

March 16, 2013

Here’s an EP I’ve been meaning to check out for a long time now, but me being me, it’s taken me the best part of forever to finally stumble upon a copy. Maaaan this shit is so fucking heavy – so heavy that on my car stereo all I can hear whilst driving are the cymbals and vocals. This is something that generally happens with muddily produced grindcore records, but Pus’ epic low end just…

Total Fucking Destruction – Childhater (Flexi) (2012)

Total Fucking Destruction – Childhater (Flexi) (2012)

March 15, 2013

All these years I’ve been collecting records and I’ve never come across a flexi and all of a sudden I have three of them in a month. When it rains, it pours, eh? I don’t really know of that much stuff on flexi that I want; there’s a Swans “New Mind” promo flexi which I hope to end up owning and a live Enemy Soil flexi, but other than that, there isn’t much else. It…

Alec Empire – Intelligence And Sacrifice (2002)

Alec Empire – Intelligence And Sacrifice (2002)

March 14, 2013

Another nostalgic blast from the past for me! Thanks to Zoverstocks selling on Amazon for 3p a record, I managed to get my hands on another album that I’ve put off buying for years. Before the industrial brigade get all up in my grill about how my info on Mr. Empire is all wrong, I must tell you I write this all as an outsider to Alec Empire’s / Atari Teenage Riot’s long career(s). This…

Pig Destroyer / Isis – Split 7″ (2000)

Pig Destroyer / Isis – Split 7″ (2000)

March 12, 2013

This is one my favourite splits ever! Limited to 2000 copies thanks to Relapse Records. There is the usual Relapse 100 clear, 100 on orange, a bizarre 50 on white, and the remaining 1750 on black. I was lucky to get a black copy at a fairly decent price, but be wary that the white and orange pressings can fetch hefty price tags on record collector websites. Classic Pig Destroyer are on top form, covering the…

The Chemical Brothers – Do It Again (2007)

The Chemical Brothers – Do It Again (2007)

March 11, 2013

Probably not my favourite Chemical Brothers tune but a good one all the while. I got this for I think £1 in Virgin Megastore when that was still around. This was released on every format possible for a single, barring tape. The 12″ contains an extended mix and a different B-side, and the CD version contains an edited mix and a remix. It seems the only place to get the un-altered single (other than to…

Paul Phipps – The Very Best of Paul Phipps (6″, Lathe, Square) (2013)

Paul Phipps – The Very Best of Paul Phipps (6″, Lathe, Square) (2013)

March 10, 2013

Don’t let the heart-melting picture of Mr. Phipps’ dog Levi on the centre-label give you the wrong idea; this record is an absolute nightmare! Paul Phipps – the guy behind Rectal Twat, Cocksnot., Wolf Pussy and many other projects that are hard on the ears – presents a small cross-section of “songs” that he considers his personal best. That sits well with me! Prepare your lugholes for 2 sides of absolute noisecore annihilation! This even…

Stalaggh – Projekt Misanthropia (EP) (2006)

Stalaggh – Projekt Misanthropia (EP) (2006)

March 9, 2013

Is there anything quite so harrowing as the story behind Stalaggh? Probably, but still, their tale is one of the sheer lengths (or is that depths) that people will go to in the name of art. Basically, the short version is that Stalaggh was formed by some of the leading names in the European black metal scene (who come together anonymously) to make the most nihilistic and horrible noise terror ever heard. As vocalists, Stalaggh…

Swans – We Rose From Your Bed With The Sun In Our Head (2012)

Swans – We Rose From Your Bed With The Sun In Our Head (2012)

March 8, 2013

Whilst I wasn’t quick enough to snag one of the original hand-made run of 1000, and whilst I am not rich enough to pay some prick hipster cunt with a wardrobe full of berets £90 for a second hand copy which no doubt they have never even played, I was finally able to get my hands on this live album when Mr. Gira thankfully re-pressed an unlimited, non-special edition run on CD. Phew. Unfortunately, this…

Redlight District Part I: The Black Edition – Torture Border / Kaelteeinbruch – Split CDr (2012)

Redlight District Part I: The Black Edition – Torture Border / Kaelteeinbruch – Split CDr (2012)

March 7, 2013

This is the first CDr in the ongoing noise collection called “Redlight District” on Germany’s Shit Noise Records. This is the only one so far I have seen that does not have a colour assigned to it (well, it’s called the “black” edition, but still, black technically isn’t a colour, and if the images were tainted black, surely they wouldn’t be visible?). Limited to 50 hand numbered copies on CDr. Torture Border open things up with…

Dehydrated Tissues / Latexxx Command / Menstrual Fistfuck – Split CDr (2013)

Dehydrated Tissues / Latexxx Command / Menstrual Fistfuck – Split CDr (2013)

March 6, 2013

When I got this through the door the other day it took me right back to the thick of the good ol’ trading days! Gotta love these insane underground goregrind compilations and splits, there really is nothing like them anywhere else in the music world. As with most Dehydrated Tissues releases, this has been put out on the band’s own label Regurgitated Stoma Stew Productions, who deal in a plethora of absolutely fucking filthy goregrind,…

Last Days Of Humanity – Hymns Of Indigestible Suppuration (2000)

Last Days Of Humanity – Hymns Of Indigestible Suppuration (2000)

March 5, 2013

Welcome to quite possibly the most perfect goregrind sound. Last Days of Humanity are probably better known for their later, 9000bpm efforts, but Hymns of Indigestible Suppuration is more my bag of disfigured body parts. The whole thing starts off with a frankly odd sample, before kicking into some of the best down-tuned slop I’ve ever had the displeasure of hearing. Could that artwork be summed up in a more perfect sound? I doubt it. The guitars…

Tumour – Spinal-Castrated Humanoid (2006)

Tumour – Spinal-Castrated Humanoid (2006)

March 4, 2013

I’ll quickly start this post by asking if anyone reading has any idea what’s become of Tumour these days? Is the project still going? Any news at all? Drop me a comment below if you know. Thanks!!! This was the first Tumour record I heard, and I got it through a trade with the label in (I think) 2007, so it was a while ago now. I’m not sure if I fell in love with…

Gut / Rompeprop – Split 7″ (2006)

Gut / Rompeprop – Split 7″ (2006)

March 3, 2013

Gut sounds absolutely huge on vinyl, I just wish they’d stop fucking around and play some more grind! I love the fun element of modern Gut whereas a lot of goregrinders shun them now, but on this record for the most part it’s a template of “typical porn sample followed by uninspired five-to-ten second song with silly vocals”. I am glad that I didn’t shell out the earth for the original CD version of this,…

Staind – Break The Cycle (2001)

Staind – Break The Cycle (2001)

March 2, 2013

Since I began listing not only my vinyl but my entire music collection on Lines in Wax, I knew the day would come where I would have to touch upon the questionable purchases I made when I was younger. Today that day has finally come. Scorn at nu-metal all you like, but I actually like this CD. I actually prefer it to say, I dunno, Deathcrush by Mayhem. Well, maybe not prefer. Wrong choices of…

Dead Infection / Haemorrhage – Split 7″ (2009)

Dead Infection / Haemorrhage – Split 7″ (2009)

March 1, 2013

Okay. I’m confused with this Dead Infection side here. What the hell is the furniture obsession thing about? The artwork, instead of some putrefying gore, is a table and chairs. The songs, instead of your usual goregrind fodder, are all about furniture. What the hell have these guys been smoking / snorting / injecting? Nevertheless, the music here is top form and Dead Infection blast and chug through some dank grindcore for us all. Have…
