Bump N’ Grind Spotlight: Give Praise Records


Looking for a good entry point to the wide and wild world of grindcore? Look no further than this free sampler from Give Praise Records.

The Path to Grind, the most recent sampler from the excellent label is a hallmark in all things grind. Whether you’re looking for powerviolence, Nasum-worship, deathgrind, old school grind, d-beat, crust, more technical and Gridlink-esque grind, cybergrind, goregrind, or just something to get your head banging, you’re certain to find at least one band on this sampler that will tickle your fancy. Press play below and treat yourself to some razor-edged ear candy from Abortion, BRUCEXCAMPBELL, Choked by Own Vomits, Department of Correction, Endless Demise, Fubar, Gorgonized Dorks, Intestinal Rot, Mesrine, Moloch, Osk, Proletar, Ritual Misery, Sick of Stupidity, Soil of Ignorance, Strong Intention, Suffering Mind, To Dust, Violent Opposition, and Wake. The best part is that it’s all free! Really, you’d be a fool not to click this link and download this “name your price” sampler.

Be sure to explore the rest of the label’s releases if there’s a particular band you like! I’m really feeling the violent jigsaw assault of Choked by Own Vomits, the pitch-shifted meat hook swagger of Intestinal Rot, and the atmospheric, hellish horror of Moloch.

In addition to this sampler, the label also routinely drops new splits. The most recent was a no-holds-barred bruiser from Department of Correction and Agathocles released just last week. This thing will beat you about the head and neck until only a stump of your spine remains.

Lastly, Dirk Verbeuren and Shane Embury fans should take note because Give Praise is the label home of Bent Sea, and a certain Venezuelan half-elf told me that Verbeuren recently posted about an upcoming release. Keep your eyes peeled to this spot!

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Anyone who would name a band BRUCEXCAMPBELL is awesome in my book.

    • Tyree

      Good. Because they rip. Nasty oldschool grind.

        There is so much tasty stuff on this sampler.

        • Tyree

          Agreed. Some good raw shit. Some of these names I haven’t seen or heard of in years. Mesrine is always a good time. Straight up serial killer grind.

      • The early stuff was Insect Warfare worship which was good. This new song sounds a little different, still enjoying it though.

  • after a weekend of power metal, this sounds good to me. will be grabbing this later

  • Fubar, BrucexCampbell, Choked By Own Vomits, Mesrine, OSK, Ritual Misery, Suffering Mind and Wake are all grabbing me. Nice find Dr. Dubs!

      I have to give credit to Link. He was on a Dirk Verbeuren kick and stumbled across the label.

    • Tyree

      Do you follow Suffering Mind at all. They put out like 3 or 4 releases this year. Also, Choked By Own Vomits bringing that ridiculous GUT worship (Odour of Torture ERA).

      • Vote for Jeb

        Choked By Own Vomits is GROSSSSS in an awesome way.

        • Tyree

          They don’t fuck around in Czech Republic when it comes to that nasty sounding goregrind. Grind in general honestly.

      • Tyree

        Here is the Suffering Mind Bandcamp page. They used to have a female vocalist, but not any more.


      • I have to go back and revisit the Suffering Mind stuff. They’ve got quite a few releases so I wanted to figure out where to start.

  • sweetooth0

    I ordered my Modorra – Solar Anus limited edition LP from these guys, good distro!

  • Cunt Cunt

    Grind is ideal for a shitty Monday evening. here’s some more.

    • This is tight, need to investigate this further.

      • Cunt Cunt

        the whole of that album is top, they’re 4 filthy Irishmen which makes it all the better.


    Not enuff trees n shit

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Mmmmmhh… grind…

  • Tyree
    • Wish these guys would put something new out. I have no idea if they are still together though.

      • Tyree

        Not a clue man. According to MA they are still active. Harsh Realities is one of my favorite grind albums of the last 10 years. That album is pretty much everything I like in grind. They absolutely nailed it.

  • Bent Sea is so funkylicious.

  • Jock Strap Full O Beef Stew

    Might have to check this bad boy out. Grind’s not normally my sorta thing, but gotta unleash myself from my current Oingo Boingo binge. BTW, the new Amberian Dawn song SUCKS! My roomie’s 5 year old daughter has been bugging me about this for months, and even she said it was boring.

    PS, R. Kelly’s (pictured in the article) a fucking cunt. More than sure I’ve told my story about him before.
