Lanny "E.T." Gordon, the founder/frontman of the Florida noisegrind band Morbid Clown, talks about his favorite grind albums of all time.
One of the classics of doom/grind and a foundation for slam/grind. This little 5-track EP by Urtek is crushingly heavy and very chaotic.
Top track: "Political Fairies"
More death than grind, but Octavian's Pax Romana is absolutely amazing. What sets it apart is the atmosohere: very unerving and dark.
Kistvaen is an underground grind classic. Malefic before they were blackened. Low production quality is made up for by the skill and sheer intensity.
Yeti's groundbreaking EP. The foundation of doom/grind. Very underrated classic. What sets it apart is the perfect mixture of grind, sludge, and ethereal syn…

The death/grind band Yeti went on hiatus earlier this year. Today, they released an EP they had been working on prior to splitting.
The first half of this EP is titled The Hate. All tracks are written by the band's frontman, UFO. The tracks combine blistering-fast grindcore with slow doom metal, but it's more than the band's signature sound. This tim around there is a more experimental approach to the doom/grind genre Yeti helped spawn.
The second side of the EP is called Salami. This half is written by Frosty, the band's guitarist. The tracks on this side are in vein of the standard doom/grind sound but with a bit more groove on tracks like "Wet Cement" and "Hole-In-the-Wall".
This release may be the band's last with drum programmer Ge…Read more >

In honor of bigfoot hunters, conspiracy theorists, and metalheads everywhere, I have decided to make a list of the current top ten neandercore and squatch-themed metal songs. The focus is on lyrical content more than what song is best. For diversity, only one track is included per band. Knowing how scene kids are really pissy about these lists, I must inform you that this is my opinion. One thing remains true though: they walk among us.
"Neanderthal" - Demolition Hammer
Kicking off the list is a piece by the New York thrashers DEMOLITION HAMMER. I think you get the idea: it's about when the knuckle-draggers ruled the Earth before man. Apparently, some of them didn't evolve...
"Black Sabbath" - Black Sabbath
Bet ya didn't know the first h…
