The subgenre of extreme metal known as ‘grindcore’ combines the speed and aggression of hardcore punk, with the brutality of death metal. There are blurry lines that separate death metal, grindcore, and thrash metal and even black metal; some bands certainly overlap these genres. What sets grindcore apart mostly is how bands push the limits known to extreme music with more intensity, speed, intensity and lyrics. Short, buzzing riffs fast enough to snap necks; guttural vocals, and blast beats underneath it all define some of grindcore’s key characteristics. Grindcore developed in the ’80s, all around different regions of the world as a result of earlier extreme metal bands such as early Metallica, Slayer, Mercryful Fate and Venom and continues to flourish in underground and even somewhat mainstream metal communities, from Singapore, Colorado, the UK, and even locally, in the OC (see Phobia). We now present the Top 10 Grindcore Bands.
We’re taking it slow and at a comfortable pace; doing things like how we did Abuse. I can’t confirm a specific time of release, so i have to say 2015. I’m sorry if it disappointed anyone who watched the video and/or follows us on our updates, but it won’t be anytime soon.
The video documents us recording a few tracks in the studio. It’s all for housekeeping, to keep track of what we have, relisten and maybe work on it again. The plan is to have more than enough songs, then narrow it down to the chosen few.
At the same time, we’re trying out Inversion Studio, manned by a dude named Cedric. We’ve been working with Ahboy at TNT Studio since we first started, I think its time to change it up a little. - Rasyid

It is the first time we are playing a huge festival in Singapore. It was beautiful and breathtaking. Knowing we are playing for our family and friends, already made our day. And it’s the perfect time and occassion for the proposal. It’s always been about the band but this time around, I just have to make it a little more special to Azean, our band manager, the woman behind the band and most importantly, in my life. The crowd was so responsive that it feels like im proposing infront of gazillion family. It was an amazing moment for us. Couldn’t be happier for my love one. She deserves the credit. - Arif
We’ve been ripped off, abandoned blablabla but we survived and end the tour with a fucking smile. We’ve been touring hard every year for quite awhile and we think it’s time to take a break and concentrate on our personal shit as for now. We’ll be back touring hopefully with another new album? MASSIVE thanks to Nicolas of Bones Brigades Records and the boys from Evisorax for being so cool during the tour. we love you guys endlessly. Last but not least, Luc from Doomstar Bookings/Fubar and of course our lovely Azean for being so patient with us. A very memorable LAST tour with the right people for the fucking win. We couldn’t have done it without your support towards us. Thank you fellow friends across the globe. GRIND OR GET THE FUCK OUT! SEE YOU AGAIN IN A FEW YEARS!
