Ok, I gave up on talking about grindcore on this forum because it seemed like all people cared about was power metal and gay Harry Potter folkcore, but I'll try one more time to see if I can generate any interest. Cripple Bastards is an Italian grindcore band that has been around for a while, but they have recently released one of their best albums, Variante Alla Morte. Not only is the production better, but the songwriting is even more diverse and creative than before. When people ask me for grindcore recommendations, I usually tell them to check out Pig Destroyer because they are the best representation of the genre, but Cripple Bastards has seriously upped their game and hopefully can attract people who are new to the genre.

Seems to be a nice band. I didn't like the hardcorish vocals on the songs that were from 2008, but the older ones didn't bother me. The deeper growls are good though. And musically...well...damn I just love it. I think I haven't said it yet, but I do consider grindcore one of the best genres, musically speaking. The aggression, melody...everything is smashed together and it sounds great. I'll try to get more of this band. Probably won't top Sublime Cadaveric Decomposition, but I should be able to enjoy this.
Of the Myspace songs, I liked Gli Anni Che Non Ritornano the most. Of the rest...I don't know yet.
I am NOT a musician, so I do not judge bands by skill. I judge them on how I like the sound.

Sweet. Someone told me that Feto Records (Anaal Nathrakh label tbh) will be selling the new Cripple Bastards album, and I noticed that Displeased Records will be selling it to, so around October I think I'll buy it.

hahahaahhha I just now found out about a Cripple Bastards tribute album -

There's actually 34 bands

Birdflesh and Gride play on it, so it might be worth checking out.

HAHAHA that's a very good split name... but not as good as "13 bands that think you're gay"

I know Cripple Bastards almost by accident. I own all Corrupted's stuff and they have a split with these suckers. Extremely competent grind, I want to get more stuff by them.

Then you must check out Variante Alla Morte - it's one of their best albums to date. It makes me want to run around throwing penile implants at people while drinking Kool-Aid

Didn't know there was a Cripple Bastards thread! I mentionned them before in another topic though. I don't search for grind on MS as it seems there are not so much people into it, I don't even have my grind collection on MS (few exceptions) but I'm glad I found this.
This is a kickass band that I know since their split with Agathocles in '93 and followed them ever since.
I don't have their last album, but that's just a matter of time.

Just another cog in this infernal machine....
