Oh no, you got weirdness in my grind! Oh no, you got grind in my weirdness! Whatever will we do?

Greetings and welcome back to the most criminally underrated series in the Toilet ov Hell. Today I’m talking grind(ish) bands on the spectrum of unconventionality, starting with a pretty straightforward powerviolence act. Let’s get to it.

 

Deadwitch – S.S.H.

Powerviolence is punk taken to its logical conclusion. Harder. Faster. Filthier. Deadwitch may be a new act on the scene, but they go at it like old pros. The two songs on this demo are stripped-down, bare-bones aggression that will whip you to death with barbed wire dipped in vinegar. If you hate the man but love nasty and brutish music, this will be right up your alley. Deathwitch get a 1 for weirdness but a 5 for aggression. Give Deadwitch a like on Facebook and toss them a couple bucks for the demo!


God Mother – Maktbehov

[W. Note: I wrote this blurb before I saw Ron Deuce’s excellent mini-review. It was just coincidence that we both found this album at the same thing.] Straddling a fine line between the all-out assault of Finnish Grind and the American battering-ram approach to powerviolence, God Mother manage to inject a whole of creativity and freshness into a scene that’s more bloated than a rotting cow corpse filled with decomposition gases. God Mother have everything you could want in a grindy album: grooves deeper than Palo Duro Canyon, intelligent song structure, and a bowel-shaking low end rumble. Even more impressive is that the band somehow manages to combine elements of Piss Vortex-esque dissonance with Theories-esque adrenaline to create a more cerebral grind experience. If you want a hardcore offshoot that transcends the beaten path while remaining grounded in old world hate, this will be right up your alley. God Mother get a 2 for weirdness but a 5 for execution. Give God Mother a like on Facebook and save up some Monopoly money for a record!


Goolagoon – Patrickviolence Demo

If you go to any grind/powerviolence fan page, you’ll likely encounter a lot of strange themes/gimmicks. Some of them are humorous. Others are moronic. To tell you the truth, I’m not quite sure where this one stands. I’m a grown ass man pretending to be George W. Bush on the internet, so I don’t really see the appeal of Spongebob Squarepants. That said, this demo goes hard. The little audio clips from the cartoon create a nice dichotomy against the vitriol of the riffs and manic intensity of the vocals. Plus, you should know by now that I’m a fan of female vocals in grind/PV. If you want to hear surf rock reinterpreted as grind and long for le good old days of le 90s cartoons, this will be right up your alley. Goolagoon get a 4 for weirdness but a 5 for violence. Give Goolagoon a like on Facebook and buy that demo for $1!


DWMF – Does a Shark Bark

Drop everything you’re doing because you’re about to go on a magical quest with this last selection, and I’m your dungeon master. The scene: a trippy technicolor forest with candy cane trees. The time: twilight if the sun was purple and cast a lavender dusk over the Earth. The activity: you and your party are battling a horde of flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz. They’re all tripping on acid. Suddenly your body sprouts fur, and you transform into a mighty werebearshark. What do you want to do? Ideally, you’ll just drop another tab and fully surrender to the weirdness. DWMF is the sister-band to the Toilet’s own Scab, with both bands sharing guitarist Taylor. This is a spazzed out, super-bizarre acid punk, but it still manages to sound tough as nails. Equal parts weird and violent, it’s just like your creepy uncle Carl, just without all those VHS tapes in the basement. If you like being strangled by Twizzlers and think Sharknado is the apex of cinema, this will be right up your alley. DWMF get a 5 for weirdness and a 5 for depravity. Give DWMF a like on Facebook and toss Taylor a few bucks on Bandcamp so he can buy beer for Tyree.

    Power violence! Time to fite!

  • Dagon

    DWMF cover is so majestic.

    I need to hear this, but I’ll spend this afternoon burning genital warts. Again.

  • Tyree

    If Taylor Nordberg were an ice cream flavor, he’d be pralines and dick.

  • *pictures barking shark* also these are all pretty sweet and I will have to get them, fuck you

  • Maik Beninton

    Can someone put that spongebobcore song on the comments. I can’t cause I am on the phone.

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt O)))

    “I’m a grown ass man pretending to be George W. Bush on the internet…”

    • I imagine there are quite a few grown ass-men around.

      • Dr. Dubz

        I think Guac Jim has deconverted any ass men in the crowd.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus™

          Calling your own series criminally underrated >>>>>>>>

          • I think that is called being an elitist^3

            GL

          • Dr. Dubz

            Elitism? That’s a paddlin’.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Lol. Tongue in cheek, my friend. Clearly Dropping the Gloves is the most underrated.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            I just walked in the door. I’m finna get weird with it for a little while.

          If you like these bands you should check out Black Army Jacket if you never have.

      • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

        You know who else is an Ass Man? This guy.

    • Someone said this to me in college and I can’t undo it. I’ve thought this way ever since.

  • Tyree

    Also, DWMF stands for: Dancing with Mein Führer

  • Maik Beninton

    I’m getting some serious nostalgia on this Goolagoon. It’s great.

    • so what is your favorite deathcore band?

      GL

      • Maik Beninton

        Whitechapel.
        They got me into death metal.

        • NICE.

          How about your favorite “djent” band?

          GLLG

          • Maik Beninton

            Animals as Leaders.

          • noice! seen them live a few times, fantastic

          • Javier gets no love live. It is always like “TOSIN!!! WOOOOO!!!! TOOOOOOSSSSIIIIINNNN!!!!”

            Poor Javier 🙁

            GL

          • i like Javier as well, and this may rustle some jimmies: but i totes prefer Koperweis on drums!

          • Lacertilian

            That’s because it’s Navene.
            Do people prefer others?
            Don’t speak to them.

        • I would argue they’re closer to being death metal than deathcore in the first place.

          • Maik Beninton

            Their last album continued that change. Their first album was very Suicide Silence.

        • Call the Slambulance

          Duuude, Somatic Defilement was my favorite album in sixth or seventh grade. I’ve been jamming it a lot lately and completely forgot how awesome it is! Shit is so heavy.

  • I’ve never seen Spongebob but it seems really, really stupid. I don’t understand you kids at all.

    • *grown ass man comment*

    • there’s tons of adult humor tucked away on the show, similar to Pee-Wee’s Playhouse back in the day. stupid yes, hilarious also yes.

    • I’m sorry, I seemed to have stepped on your lawn slightly.

      • I’M OOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLDDDD

        • Christ, you are pushing – what, almost 28? 29? lol

          • I want to go to Luby’s but my bones are too brittle.

          • I wonder if they have a senior citizen discount a the restaurant-that-must-not-be-named… Hmmm…

            Big 50 in May?

          • more beer

            June. I out lived every ones expectations. As I was pretty wild when I was young to say the least.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Thats great man! Ill keep my eyes open for you! nice to have someone else that was a kid in the 70s! And FUCK IM NOT the oldest! lol! I was nuts too man.. I can relate!

          • more beer

            That`s funny. That`s what KJM said to me as he`s another old guy. I`m here pretty often. A kid in the 70`s a young adult in the mid 80`s the best time in history of metal. I still go to show`s regularly. Probably more than a lot of the kids here. Disposable income is awesome.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Yea it was cool..there are aspects i prefer now:
            easier access to info for all things metal..more choices BUT its also like white noise at times theres so many bands and info….also there less longevity. And damn straight, disposable income is nice! I go to alot more shows now too and still buy music, merch
            etc. Ive really
            been nostalgic about the 70s lately it was such a cool time espeically the last few years 77-80…when were in the middle school years. Thats when all the trouble started for me..but it was really fun at first.

          • more beer

            Sometimes I think it`s almost too easy now. I grew up in New York and always had a lot of access to music. There were a couple of good local record stores. Plus NYC was a quick train ride away .If you couldn`t find what you wanted there, you weren`t finding it. That`s about when I started getting into a lot of shit too. I think it was a better time to be a kid without a doubt. Now it seems every parent is so PC they don`t let their kids be kids. It seems to me they found a way to take the fun out of childhood. But the times aren`t too terrible now there is a good scene where I live now. Plus I can afford all the things I want to do.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Good point. I grew up in a suburb outside of Chicago. It was hard to find the obscure type stuff for me then..I always had a taste for it but was stuck with hit parader and circus to find metal bands. I missed the ZINE boat and am sorry i did. I’m sure had I tried harder I could have tapped in more effectively. I think every generation loves their respective childhood era but in looking at my stepson (17) versus our generation I would defend the major arguments for our generation: face to face communication, more independence earlier for us, no helmets on bikes LOL…small ass skateboards with METAL wheels, lol! And yes affording things and the ability to do so is great…just think in a few more years no one will hire us and we can be broke again!

          • more beer

            Hit Parader and Circus sucked. I would spend hours in record stores looking for things. Plus I was trading tapes. It was so much different when we were coming up is right. We weren`t tied to a phone if some one called you and you weren`t around you called them back the next day or you used a payphone. To this day I prefer face to face contact. Or call me If you are someone I want to talk to you will have my number. I do not do that facebook crap. As for helmets on bikes don`t forget the knee pads and elbow pads. When I was in the navy in combat zones I wore less protection than these kids. (I was in Beirut in 83 when they blew up all of those marines) As for no one hiring me I have a small business so I won`t get fired. If I get too old to do the work I will put a young metal head on to do the work and take a percentage. I have to go run that business so I can afford all of the shows that are coming up. You have a good day.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Well said man! sounds great. Talk to you soon!

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            GL how old are you? You may have mentioned it to me before, if so, my apologies.

          • 27.5, son.

          • sweetooth0

            I’m older than dirt and I find that show funny as shit. I just like weird shit. Plus it’s made by the same people who did Ren and Stimpy back in the day, which is one of the all time greatest cartoons ever! Also shout out to Ripping Friends, I gotta try and track that down.

          • Lacertilian

            Bring back powdered toast man & log.

          • sweetooth0

            WORD! I managed to find Ripping Friends last night on Pirate Bay too. JOY!

          • Count_Breznak

            No it isn’t. Spongethings inventor worked a while for Rocko’s Modern Life. No connection to R&S whatsoever, unless you count running on nickelodeon and being a lame, unoffensive ripoff.

          • sweetooth0

            Coulda swore John K had something to do with it. Oh well, guess not. Agreed it don’t hold a candle to Ren and Stimpy, but I still find it funny

          • Count_Breznak

            It’s not like SB is the worst show ever, but everytime I see anything related to it I get reminded of Ren & Stimpy and how much better it was. A big part of it was the really peculiar way they handled the translation, further adding to the general weirdness. Something Spongebob is missing completely.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            Young in both age and spirit.

          • BYAAAAHHHH!!!!

            GLLG

    • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

      It’s so good. I watch it often.

  • Mother Shabubu III

    Dear bands who do that feedback shriek thing as a fill between riffs,

    WHY???

  • Mother Shabubu III
    • Sir Tapir the Based™

      This came to my mind when I saw Goolagoon album cover.

    • Maik Beninton

      This is 00s kids at its best. Love it.

    • Call the Slambulance

      Haha I found these guys a while ago and didn’t like it, but I’m so happy I’m vibing off of it now.

  • Actiondonkey

    When reading the title of this article I thought this was going to be a list of good songs for bedroom freakin’. While I doubt Lucia would be cool with adding these jams into our show, Type O’s World Coming Down is still our go-to for extended sessions. 200x volume. Speakers under the bed. Crank the Bass.

    • Dr. Dubz

      Put on some Teddy Pendergrass. He’ll tell you what to do.

      • Actiondonkey

        Got that right. For ‘mixed company’ parties, a little Pendergrass and Vandross usually do the trick.

  • This is a nice selection right here. Jules wants to get a foot massage to this. Good job as always Dr. W.!

    • Dr. Dubz

      Ayyyy

  • KJM
    • BLOODBEARDE

      Oh snap

      • KJM

    • Let them fight it out on tour together. I love both bands but never made that connection.

  • I was just thinking about asking for suggestions for bands like these. Dubya, you’re a goddamn mind reader.

  • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

    I like Goolagoon quite a bit.

  • Call the Slambulance

    Awesome edition, Dubz! All of these bands are absolutely killer. Also, holy shit, the song Pepto-Dismal from DWMF is so good.

    • Dr. W.’s Tentacles

      Ayyyy

  • The Beargod

    I dig DWMF mightily. I’ll try to check these other’s up too.
    Oh this I too already mentioned but God Mother is very nice.

  • Lacertilian

    I think needed to hear acid punk around 10 years ago, potential abounds.
