Some but not all of the stuff I Listened Relatively Recently Post 6: Anal Trump, Seax, Livet Som Insats, Sloth (yet again)

Full Lengths

Band/Artist: Anal Trump
Album: That Makes Me Smart!
Style: Grindcore
country/location: San Diego, CA, USA
release: 2016

I was going to post a track from this perfectly timed grind project no matter the outcome of this past month, and I still intend to do so. AT supposedly is a project of the dudes in Cattle Decapitation as either protest or parody or both of a particular presidential candidate. Each song is a very very very very very short quick blast of noisy grindcore/powerviolence involving the famous or infamous sayings of the subject individual. When I say short, I'm talking average of 4 seconds here. And they punch and cram all the best grind/powerviolence/hardcore ever into those 4 or 6 seconds. It's a statement all right!

Band/Artist: Seax
Song: Fall to the Hammer
Album: Speed Metal Mania
Style: Speed Metal
country/location: Worcester MA USA
release: 2016

So you all remember that comic that went around the internet where a butterfly lands on this dude's finger and says "bring back 80's speed metal" and the dude then throws up the horns. Well, Seax has singlehandledly brought back 80's speed metal, for the 3rd time! Their new album takes the fun, youthful energy and love of heavy metal of their breakout hit album "High On Metal" and just cranks it up to 666. It's a moshing romp through warehouse hallways full of society's rejects and patch vested headbangers! Raise your horns!

Band/Artist: Livet Som Insats
Song: Medaljongrawk
Album: Check your Grind
Style: Grindcore/Crust/Hardcore Punk
country/location: Sweden
release: 2016

Hmm I've been posting a lot of grind recently. Is that a bad thing? Naw! Grind is among my fav of the metal/hardcore subgenres. Anyways, this band's album was handed to me while I was at a Gadget show in Worcester, so glad that happened. This is raw and straight to the point grind with a touch of groove riffing to please headbangers. Unrelenting and consistent, there's no breaks nor moments to take a breath. Just pure grind!

Sloth Single Of The Week

Band/Artist: Sloth
Song: The Right Idea​!​! (11​/​24​/​16)
Album: The Right Idea​!​! (11​/​24​/​16)
Style: Noise
country/location: Tampa, Florida USA
release: 2016

So there's this band called Sloth who for the last two or three years have been releasing a noise track practically every day with silly/weird/whatever titles. It's all just noise, but for the fun of it, I thought every other post I'd post one here for no reason other than I find them hilarious. This track is kinda similar to a previous posted track, Socky Octy​!​!, with that high high high forced bass sound but this has a little bit more treble noise to it. The booming bass sound does seem to pulsate at times but it is subtle. This goes on like this for 12 minutes. Enjoy!
