You Grind...But Why?: Gate

Gate grind. It's what the Japanese duo does. Toshinori Otake doesn't mince words when I ask the Discordance Axis-inspired guitarist and vocalist why he itches to blast. For him, it's an innate drive and the sense of [synaesthetic?] achievement that comes from it.

"I think the grindcore is an ultimate music," Toshi said. "I have to work hard [so] I can play it. I can taste a great sense of achievement. Of course, I love fast musics!"

@ gamefaced: I put on Blood I Bleed as I laid down to go to sleep the other night. I don't know why things like that work sometimes, but they do.

Also, fuck yeah Gate.

sound like a fucktard? who do you think you're talking to here. i think the new lfaa album is very relaxing at the end of a long day.

Andrew: totally agree. I have three kids and after a day with them and all the CONSTANT noise they create, I find nasty agressive music just calms me back down. And yep, the LFAA album is totally ace. Hopefully they'll be at OE next year.
