Got a case of the Mondays? Well then this should brighten up your day. Within the last week, the Relapse Records website announced new tracks from not just one but TWO awesome grind bands. First up is Albequerque, New Mexico's Noisear, whose new track "Life Consumed You" is streaming here. It's a solid minute or so of experimental, trippy, yet still heavy-as-balls grind (yes, balls are very heavy), and if the rest of the album is this good then it will definitely be a must-have for any grind enthusiast's collection. We'll find out when said new album, entitled Subvert the Dominant Paradigm, drops on February 1st. If you want to hear another new track (you greedy bitch), follow the first link to their Myspace page, where they're streaming the song "Global Warning" from the recent Relapse label sampler.
Next up is one of the genre's leading bands, none other than the Finnish grind machine Rotten Sound. They've released the first song from their upcoming full length Cursed on their Myspace as well, simply called "Plan". RS is a bit more straightforward than the previous band, opting for the more tried and true grindcore sound, but that doesn't make them any less devastating. Their last three albums (and their latest EP) have been nothing less than top-notch, and the new song sounds just as good as anything from those releases, so I personally am looking forward to this the most (don't worry Noisear, daddy still loves you too). Cursed is set to release on March 15th, so be on the lookout for that as well. Plus both of these albums will of course be reviewed by yours truly once they're made available, so that way you'll know just how awesome they are before you even *snicker* buy them. Stay tuned folks, there's more where this one came from.
