Some breeze to refresh your summer

***Pissdeads/Brain-Sick split cd-r, Bile Swamp records 2009
Thanks to Kotsya from Pissdeads for sending this to my email address,
Pissdeads is a noisegrind one-man band from Russia. His sound consist of a blasted drum and a wall of noise created by vocals and fuzzy guitars. The recording seems to be recorded in a reharsal room or something, with a strange reverber on the drums, that seems like a bunch of saucepans. They remind me of some Deche-Charge stuff, except their songs are longer and, on this side, are 8, so no 345675839 tracks as one can expect, plus the vocals are pretty harsh and Anal Cunt-ish. It's good noisegrind if you want my opinion, this split has good stuff on it, so I think that something interesting may come out in the future from this guy. So be sure to take an eye on him.
Brain-Sick is from Russia too, and plays a kind of lo-fi noisegrind too. It's a pity I haven't got many infos about this, except they're friends of Pissdeads. They deliver 7 tracks, with a cover of Anal Cunt's "Harvey Corman is gay", of well-done grind with some noise touches. Too bad the vocals and guitars are a a bit low, as I can guess it's a home-made recording. I'm pretty sure I'll try to get some more infos, because, in my opinion, they need better recordings.
It's a good split, enjoyable, so, if you want to hear some underground stuff with unknown bands, go for it.

***Cancer Spreading/Cruel Storm split 7'', Co-production 2009
And here's again Cancer Spreading. I was impatient to check out some better recorded stuff, and here I am. And you know? It was worth. I was lucky enough to find in a distro a week after it was out, so I didn't have to order it somewhere.
Cancer Spreading, see here for the older review, are from Modena, Italy. Now they added a guitar player so they're 5. As you can guess by their name, they love Deviated Instinct. So do I, can't blame them for this eheh. On this piece of wax they deliver 2 tracks of filthy stenchcore. Fast parts alternated to mid tempos followed by metalish harsh distorted guitars and sung with raw growls. This stuff reminds me of old UK stuff in the vein of the first crust bands, so a lot of punkish flith mixed to metalish thrashing with an 80s style. One song is about religion, while the other one is an attack to the so called "progress". Great recording if you ask me, definitely worth checking out.
On the other side there's Cruel Storm. They are a 4 piece d-beat band from Cesena, Italy. I had never heard them so this was the first time they reached my ears. Fast hammering drums that reminds me of some Scandinavian touches and some Masskontroll-ish riffs, and a desperate vocalist and with a punkish edge that reminds me of some Anti-Cimex. They too have 2 tracks, both have political lyrics. One is against war and the other is a refusal of this society. I actually like this stuff more than I thought. I'm not a big d-beat fan, but this band mixes a lot of things I like, so "Fuck Yeah", I say.
Congrats to all the label involved in this, this has 2 cool bands and prove that in Italy there's still something to say and to play. Don't miss this if you're into this kind of stuff, you won't fucking regret!!

***AxSxHx- Dead area fastcore 7'', NFL, Dead Area, Holy Shit, Breathlike Violence records 2009
I bought this off NFL distro (which is one of the co-producers). It was described as "Hellnation meets Crossed Out", so how could I miss this one?
AxSxHx are a Dutch trio. Their name stands for Another Stupid Hardcoreband. I'm not 100% sure they are three (I guessed it from the band pic in the back cover) because there's no info on the record sleeve+inlay. They have 11 songs on this vinyl. One is an intro and one an outro. The intro's about "The Crimson Executioner", with quotes from movies on a mid tempo with guitar and bass playing. For the songs you have to wait till the second song. And from then it's a blast. Hyper fast blastings drums combined with hyper distorted guitar and bass. Some slow parts are present too, but don't be sad, these won't last for long. All the noise is sung with Crossed Out-esque and a bit of Spazz reminding vocals. This stuff is beyond the adjective "raging", it's pure powerviolence madness. Ultra intense, raging, fast as hell music. Vocals reminds me of the criminally underrated and fucking awesome German band Flächenbrand. Lyrics are about life in general, some are in dutch, and one is about "hardcore" and all the elitism around it in the so called "scenes". Then after all this raging tupa tupa trrr harsh core you have an harsh noise outro called "Soap for hygiene" by Apophallation, a dutch harsh noise performer, just to relax your ear with after such a rush. Cool cover as well, with a collage of funny things and movie-characters upon a Dutch city.
If you're into this stuff you can't miss this, it's refreshing as hell, we need more stuff with these intenisty!!! If you choose not to buy it then don't tell me I hadn't warned you!!
