Ground Zero fer Grindcore (Terrorizer: World Downfall / Repulsion: Horrified)

Fook, it's only Tuesday! Aaaaaaargh! Its another one of them fooking slo-mo weeks where time seems to stand still while yer at work. Shit, the weekend seems like an eternity away!

In an effort to speed up time, me has posted (below) two of the FASTEST fooking albums on planet metal. Alongside, Napalm Death's seminal Scum, Terrorizer's World Downfall & Repulsion's Horrified are considered to be the ground zero fer grindcore. Note to metal fans, Terrorizer features future Napalm guitarist (the late) Jesse Pintando as well as Morbid Angel alumni Dave Vincent & Pete Sandoval. Production is courtesy of Scott Burns who would later produce Sepultura, Obituary & host of other underground metal heavyweights.

Fer those unfamiliar with the genre, this is where metal is played at extreme speeds & utilises rudimentary production techniques to give proceedings a real garage feel (though am sure the miniscule recording bugets also contributed to this!). This is metal that is fast, urgent & groundbreaking (lest we forget these are late-80s releases).

If like me, your week is in dire need of an adrenaline injection, these two albums should do the trick quite nicely. Enjoy!

G'day everyone...
Balaji has certainly picked to Colossal Albums...they are certainly groundbreaking albums...in Extreme Metal...
Talkin bout repulsion fer a band that only existed fer 10 mths...what they released has influenced bands like Napalm Death,Carcass,and many more...with the signature Buzzsaw guitars,Dave rave's Drumming for an albumm that was released in 86...and after 22 yrs they still sound awesome...to think that this was just a demo album...
Terrorizer boasted half of Morbid Angel..Pete Commando Sandoval...and David Vincent...+ Jesse Pintado + my fav Track is The Dead Shall Rise... short FAst and Powerful....
whooo..cant wait to listen 2 them again...

boss,

just to update with you;

i am still learning to appreciate stuff by Zakir Hussain. i was taken aback when the cd was first spun. a pleasant surprise though. i really dig it.

kerp: hey hey! Exactly the same thing happened to me when a friend pulled that album out from his LP collection. I was fooking blown away. Me searched high & low fer years before me found a CD copy in a hi-fi shop being sold at premium prices. Well worth it though.

Also managed to ctach Zakir live a few years back when he played with five other grandmaster percussionists from India at the Civic Centre. It was totally mesmerising. Bernard & meself were also fortunate enough to get tickets fer Zakir/John McLauglin's Shakti show at PWTC last year.

Glad you like it. As far as me is concerned, it is quite possibly one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever committed to tape. Fooking brilliant!

achilles: Pls download. If anything, at least you can say you have these two classic grindcore albums in yer collection (whether you dig it or not). After all, these are pretty hard to find albums, so why not. Besides am sure yer wifey will appreciate it.

AD: Bro.. tried to download last night but very slow-lah... i try again tonight.

You are right... me may not like it too much, but like you always say, me will give it a try nonetheless.

achilles: Hooray!
