Grindcore Alphabet: W

Yes, I have previously bitched about bands slapping Dubya’s simian mug on albums to score a cheap “political” point, so I assume that makes me a flaming fucking hypocrite now. But c’mon. It’s W, and there is a point to this. This time out we’re treated to the martial madness of both Warscars and Warsore, which reminded me of Get Your War On, possibly the only good thing to come out of eight years of the Shrub’s misrule. Too fucking bad half of comic’s jokes could just as easily apply to Obama.
And that’s really fucking depressing. Ever get the feeling you're being cheated?
On a happier note, your letter W mixtape [Mixtape]:

Wire – “Reuters” (England)
Wojczech – “Superparadigma” (Germany)
Wormrot – “Born Stupid” (Singapore)
Warscars – “Killing Rate: Complete” (France)
Worlds – “I.M.O.H.C.” (Germany) (United States)
Word Salad – “Take it Back” (United States)
Who’s My Saviour – “Annihilated Motivation” (Germany)
Warsore – “Six Millions Slaughtered” (Australia)
Weekend Nachos – “Sink to Your Level” (United States)
World Downfall – “Fuckup False Charge” (Germany)
Wasteoid – “Drink N Hand” (United States)
Wadge – “Demon Dogs of Waikiki” (United States)
Wage Slave – “Chambered” (United States)
Wake – “Defiler” (Canada)
Watchmaker – “Infidelity’s Eyestabbing Unease” (United States)

Total to date: 393 bands

Ha, didn't expect to see Wire on here. No recommendations for this one, more black metal bands for W than anything.

Oh, I lied; need some White Eyes on here for sure.

Worlds are from Florida, dawg

Andrew Childers said...

shit. you're right. got them confused with somebody else. thanks for catching that.

brutalex said...

No problem at all.

By the way there's another band called World Downfall from Japan and they are way cooler than the German one. They have a split with Nashgul and a 6 track EP you should check out when you get the chance (after you listen to No Qualms!).

I second Brutalex's better World Downfall, they also have a good split with Agathocles too.

Andrew Childers said...

actually, that may be the japanese world downfall. it came off the grindbastards comp from japan. i didn't know there were two.

My favorite German band is Discordance Axis.

Andrew Childers said...
