Gridlink creates a full-on grind masterpiece – full of different treats.  Wait, that sort of rhymes.

 

Look to Windward: Gridlink (NJ, Texas, Japan) (0:28-3:38)

 

Gurgling vocals here are not my fave, but this band is SO frigging tight and satisfying in melody and riffs, I proceeded to listen to their full album.  Their second vocalist is awesome.  Revocation guitarist.

 

Hormone's Echo: Artificial Brain (NY) (4:53-11:03)

 

Crusty, classic and death all in one package.

 

Ancient Rites of Buried Evil: Coffin Dust (Philadelphia) (11:20-16:55)

 

Atmospheric death from some weirdo Texans.

 

The Eye: Škan (Austin) (17:20-22:14)

 

First awesome 70’s retro psychedelic rock album of the year.

 

Waterfalls: Doctor Cyclops (Italy) (23:03-29:12)

 

Masterful grind from old farts Cripple Bastards.

 

Occhi Trapiantati: Cripple Bastards (Italy) (29:39-33:26)

 

If you can catch Thou live, do it.  Their black metal will not exhaust you.  The vocalist really keep you focused.

 

In Defiance of the Sages: Thou (Baton Rouge) (33:49-39:22)

 

Next (3) bands from the French hardcore scene:

Noise and violence from Paris, and Remote.

 

Faith. Lame: Remote (Paris) (39:52-43:37)

 

2 piece with some math-y hardcore.

 

Wrong Way/Nice Trip: Piece of Map (France) (43:44-46:59)

 

Lodges manages to infuse melody without it being sappy.

 

Downward: Lodges (France) (47:10-50:55)

 

Filthy breakdowns galore.  Great name for a band.

 

17.5 Dead Air: Secret Cutter (Pennsylvania) (51:08-54:16)

 

Bast is the first band signed to Conan’s lead singer’s record label Black Bow Records, and they ROCK IT, totally Conan-style; riffy and catchy.

 

Spectres: Bast (England) (54:53-END!)
