Recommend me some Grind-core bands

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by IAMERICCOCHRANE, Apr 12, 2004.


  1. My friend asked me to play in his Grind-core band, but I have never heard of grind-core before and I was just seeing if anyone knew any good bands in that category.
     
  2. I may be wrong, but I believe Carcass (not together anymore, they broke up a few years back) is considered grind core. Whatever they were classified as, they seriously rocked....if you like your metal heavy and technical that is..
    P.S. Are we the only Coloradans here ?
     
  3. There are a few others. I can't recall their names right now.

    I'm not sure if grindcore purists would consider this "grindcore" but:

    Combatwoundedveteran
    Locust
    An Albatross
    Lightning Bolt (arty grindcore...but seriously the loudest band on the planet)
     
  6. Anal ****
    Locust
    Pig Destroyer
    As The Sun Sets
    Albatross
    Agoraphobic Nosebleed
    Red Rocket Fiasco
    A*suck
    XFilesX
    DRI(maybe)
    Cryptopsy(some what)
    Capitalist Casualties

    Lightning Bolt is not grind core however. It is scary bass and drum act. But not quite grind.

    AC, Locust, and Agoraphobic Nosebleed good places to start, as well as Phobia and Nasum. xFilesx is straight edge hardcore, and Capitalist Casualties are Powerviolence :p

    I'm sad it took that long for someone to say Napalm Death. That's the first band that comes to mind whenever anyone says grindcore to me.

    I also like Napalms Death's social awareness and lyrical content. It's not as pretentious as RATM, and while it may be a little simplistic, at least it's not splatterhouse (Cannibal Corpse) lyrics or a strident Satanic thing (Morbid Angel).

    Which makes enjoying them all the much easier and better. Grindcore doesn't need to be seen live to "get it," (though it helps) you just need a kicking stereo and the willingness to headbang like you've got a badger on your head who has a hankerin' for your cerebral cortex.

    If you don't know what grind-core is then you definitely shouldn't being playing it IMHO. Your heart will not be in it and YOU WILL BECOME VERY BORED.


    A friend of mine asked me to join his Brutal Death Metal band. I did but quickly quit. My heart just wasn't in it. As long as I was in that band I was being a poser. I asked him why he liked that style of music and he said that's just how he feels. He was in it for all the right reasons.

    My heart belongs to Classic Rock and Sludge/Stoner Metal. I can't change that even if I wanted to. It's just how I feel.

    Terrorizer and Repulsion are good grindcore bands, too.
     
  15. I checked out their band yesterday (bassless unfortunately) and I really really liked it. Ive never played metal before, but while listening I thought up some really cool basslines for the songs. They are like some of the grindcore bands you guys mentioned, but a bit more funkier and techincal. Ill be having a load of fun.
