Bump N’ Grind: Terrorist and Absolute Contempt Records

Today we shine a fluorescent light on the work of one of our readers, Daniel Z. His grind band, Terrorist, just dropped their discography compilation on his new label, Absolute Contempt Records, and let me tell you, this thing is a doozy.

30 tracks. 43 minutes. Endless pain. That’s how you write a grind album. Post-Mortem is a non-stop tour de force that puts the punk back in grind. Most songs stay under the 2-minute mark, each an adrenaline shot of gritty, filthy, no-holds-barred fury. This release, the band’s final compilation of all of their recorded material, combines the harshest, nastiest song in Terrorist’s discography and just never, ever lets up. What’s most impressive about Post-Mortem, though, is the diversity and talent on display. Don’t believe me? Press play on the stream below.

Over the course of these 30 tracks, Daniel Z. and co. wear a diverse set of masks. Swirling distortion and gnarly divebombs characterize “Military Issue Cannibalism” and “Sugar and Spice”, the former featuring a deranged muted solo. Ponderous, concrete-pillar heavy doom riffs creep into earshot on “Eminent Disdain”. Booze-soaked hard-rockin’ bravado and punky antagonism pour from the veins on “What Kind of Terrorist” and “False Positives”, respectively. Shrieks recorded from the depths of hell emanate on “Dysphoria” and “Affirmation”, while a fuzz born straight from the Devil’s lettuce permeates the riffs on “Wordless Control”. The band stretch themselves well beyond the confines of grind with a tubular lead on “My Right” and a weird, morose noisy transition on the remix of “Affirmation”. Throughout the entire album, though, the band proves that it can blast, shred, and scream with the best of them.

If you never checked out Terrorist before, now is your chance. You can purchase Post-Mortem digitally on Bandcamp or physically via Dead Tank Records. Daniel also tells me that Halo of Flies should have the album sometime this week too, so keep your eyes glued to the band’s Facebook page for details.

Thanks, Daniel, for the killer submission. I look forward to scaring frat bros with this after the holiday season.

    Reminds me of some of the grindy shit Today is the Day did back in the day. Especially on Willpower.

    • Dubs

      Yah, I can hear it.

      • ┼yree

        Today is the Day certainly was not as blasty of course but that depressing dystopian sound that TITD mastered is certainly present. It’s like if Today is the Day ate one of those Mario mushrooms but it enhanced the grind factor instead.

        • Stockhausen

          I’d eat that mushroom. Willpower is an awesome album, I wish I could listen to Terrorist right now.

    Happy Friday motherscratchers!

  • Boss the Ross

    That riff on Eminent Disdain is some sludgy doom crust goodness. And these song titles are exquisite.

  • BobLoblaw

    Pretty good too, not a huge fan of the mix though.

  • Punk riffs and blast beats, this my kind of grind. Terrorist rips!

  • Grind + riffs swells my member. Danks, Dubs.

    • Dubs

      Make sure that swelling doesn’t last more than 4 hours.

      • more beer

        A guy who can’t get it up. Who has an erection lasting more than four hours isn’t going see any doctor. He is gonna use it as long as he can.

  • so far, this does rip. thanks W and Daniel Z, oh yeah and thanks D…ank Records!

  • COAL ROLL

    will be on Vinyl? will buy. this is good

    • Dubs

      He didn’t mention anything about vinyl, but I can ask.

    • Dubs

      I just asked. He said no plans for vinyl at the moment because the demand isn;t high. You can get the cd from Dead Tank.

      Have a very Power Metal Christmas, Tyree

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          Key & Peele guest starred in arguably the best episode of Rick And Morty ever.

          • ┼yree

            Never seen it.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Rick Sanchez is the most cynical bastard ever. He is true Old School Hate. If Bill Hicks, George Carlin, and The Doctor were put in a Brundlefly chamber, the resulting jumble would be Rick. It’s the best animated series since South Park, and I honestly like it much better. End Sales Pitch.

          • ┼yree

            That’s a pretty good sales pitch. I’ll check it out I guess.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I haven’t developed an addiction to a show this quickly since South Park. It definitely fills the gaping hole left by Aqua Teen’s departure.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Its way better than South Park. I even think thats a bit insulting.

            Its more than just toilet humor

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Imo South Park was classic for the first 5 years or so, then Matt and Trey suddenly became more concerned with preaching to me than making me laugh. That’s when I defected to Adult Swim.

          • and they were fucking spectacular in Fargo season 1!!

          • ┼yree

            That reminds me, I need to start season 2.

        • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

          Hilarious episode. And an apt depiction

    • CyberneticOrganism

      GAAAAH

  • ┼yree
  • CyberneticOrganism
    • Boss the Ross

      Is this your’s?!?

      • CyberneticOrganism

        Nah, it just reminds me of what a guitar would (should) look like after these guys’ gigs.

        • Boss the Ross

          Ah, okay. I was a little worried you broke something.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            I wish mine would spontaneously smash itself so I could upgrade.

          • Boss the Hoss Ross

            Haha!

          • Boss the Hoss Ross

            What do you have?

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Schecter 7. Sounds good, plays good, no problems, but I wouldn’t mind a slightly longer scale length.

          • Boss the Hoss Ross

            Ooohh, nice.

  • more beer

    I just read this if anyone ad any doubts.MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland died of a toxic mix of drugs that included cocaine, according to a medical examiner’s office in Minnesota where he was found dead on his tour bus in early December.

    The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office said Friday that the 48-year-old Weiland had cocaine, ethanol and the amphetamine MDA in his system. The medical examiner also noted a history of cardiovascular disease, asthma and multi-substance dependence.

    • ┼yree

      Overdosed On Cocaine, Alcohol And Ecstasy

      • more beer

        Yep! Ecstasy and alcohol don’t mix well. That is why all of the ravers drink water.

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          Tums(for the calcium) and lots of water.

          • more beer

            Tums for the heartburn. From eating something that tastes like battery acid.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            For the calcium as well. MDMA drains calcium from your blood.

          • more beer

            No I know. I am no stranger to MDMA.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I’ve only done it once since it was criminalized, and that was to stay awake so I only took 1/2 the cap.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            When I took it, I used Os-Cal tablets to be sure.

  • Waynecro

    Killer gym album! Thanks! Great label name, too! Absolute Contempt Records: You have to spit whenever you say it.
