I like both, "False" and "?"
Did anyone say False? Great band.
Awww, Sad. I used to like you Maco. It really isn't overrated but it's not for everyone.
If by SEL you mean Serial Experiments Lain, that is definitely NOT an overrated anime. You're suggesting it gets universal praise in all circles of the art? That's just false
R.I.P. VIG. SEL is an overrated anime.
Oh my god will you all please shut the fuck up

It took 16 long years for
to release a new album, but the wait was well worth it. With
the band delivers their death-grind with such precision that younger bands of the genre should take note. Aggression and being pissed off at the system does pay off.
11 minutes of super-concentrated hardcore riffs played with purely death metal intensity and ferocious distortion: this is what grindcore is all about.
is frighteningly visceral and so explosive it's hard to follow them; listening to
feels like getting slapped upside the head with a skyscraper. That somehow hasn't stopped
from writing fully fleshed-out and interesting songs, though; there's more to this album than just getting your brutality fix.
This roaring, broad-shouldered beast of an album contains a fair amount of sludge, but just because
slows down sometimes doesn't mean it is any less volatile or potent than its fellow grindcore nominees.
is a relentless train of harsh noise for whom guitars are weapons, not instruments, a band big on bludgeoning and not much for melodic detours. Simple in composition and unmatched in ugliness,
is likely to leave your brain looking like the cover art after the first song.
I don't know who this Magruder guy is, but he is one *angry* muthatrucka and enjoys getting his grind on.
is fast, furious and to the point with 15 tracks in 24 minutes of Relentless Hatred. The write-up shouldn't take longer to read than a spin of the album, so play loud and smash stuff.
's vocals are like white noise chopped into syllabic morsels; the riffs are impenetrable walls of atonal factory ambiance.
is a feast of all the angry, violent, disturbing sounds that funnel into the best grindcore, and the production really makes the album come alive with vicious focus. Ripping into spastic riffs with razor-like guitars and spewing hatred all over the walls with vile aplomb,
is a prime example of why grindcore should be banned from our schools, playgrounds, and shopping centers.
is a grind album that will stick, and that comes with all the fixins one could ask for. Frenetic, crusty riffs with a very
-esque guitar tone, barreling drum and bass rhythms, and the energetic vocals of Ryan McKenny make this one that really gets the blood pumping and the necks snapping. An ideal album for a good drinking session with the squad, coping with anger, or destroying property. Metal Storm shall not be held liable for that last one.
is so thick, sludgy, and guttural that it almost feels like you're listening to the album through a swamp, but it's still noticeably grindcore (with an unhealthy dose of more fully-formed death metal jammed into the side for good measure). Fuzzy, raw, and prone to repetitive bludgeoning,
has delivered yet another swift kick to the head. This malformed hunk of disease-ridden filth howls and grinds like gas escaping from a putrid carcass being turned into some kind of unpleasant and highly illegal science experiment.
Sowing The Seeds Of A Worthless Tomorrow
We'll bet you never thought Canadians could get this violent (at least, not since
Strapping Young Lad
broke up), but
's third album is a visceral lightning strike of pestilential shrieking and feedback that will leave you face-down in the gutter. Even when the album slows into a more mid-paced curb-stomping, it only seems to grow even heavier and more powerful than ever - and of course it immediately shoots back into overdrive with spastic chord progressions and raw-throated screams.
It's sad that these guys have left us, but at least they managed to end things with this violent swansong.
have done previously and builds upon it even further with some surprising down-tempo moments that deal out the intensity in a much more crushing, agonizing approach. Relentless, frantic riffage and snarly vocals one moment, painfully slow and deliciously groovy passages the next, here this band went out with a major bang. Rest In Powerviolence.
Singaporean grindcore masters do not lend themselves to compromise with anyone. Their fearless attack was masterfully executed once more. It's straightforward, vicious grindcore with an even more dynamic approach and a great deal of blasting tempo changes through the whole set of 20 tracks. Its aggression knows no boundaries and provides an undoubtedly massive effort that will leave you sobbing from the pumping of pure adrenaline at the finish line.
, as an unusually very diverse record, ensures to take control over the listener right from the beginning.
