Just Give Up On Everything And Listen To Vermin Womb

Stop sharing those try hard Nihilism memes (guilty) and pay attention. The twenty minutes of music available from Vermin Womb is hot to trot and ready to fuck your soul back into the ether. Grinding and bellowing out of Denver (the US capital of grind?), Primitive Man’s Ethan McCarthy spearheads another trio of life plunderers. Unlike the Man, Vermin Womb don’t do slow. Nah. They do full tilt, blasting death and grind. The sort of music that even your closest metal friends will still refer to as “just noise”. Fuck those friends. They don’t know a thing.

Gadget – The Great Destroyer

Don’t feel bad if you don’t recognize the Gadget name despite their status as grindcore veterans; the group have existed on-and-off for two decades in more than one iteration and haven’t released a full-length in ten years. For all intents and purposes, Gadget’s third full-length The Great Destroyer acts as an introduction to the Swedes’ thick and chaotic turn at grind for a new generation of fans. With their newfound spotlight and label Relapse Records’ ever expanding reach, Gadget have got a lot to prove; bands often don’t get a second chance at first impressions, and The Great Destroyer makes a solid case for Gadget as a band to watch.
