Grindcore Bracketology 3: The 3-6 Matchups

Round two brought us the first upset and it kinda surprises me. (In retrospect, maybe not so much.) Who got unceremoniously dumped? Let's get to the results.

THE GEEZERS

More Metal
Napalm Death's From Enslavement just got obliterated by Assuck's Misery Index. What many consider to the be the most influential grind albums in history got smoked 14-9.

More Punk
This one wasn't even close. Unseen Terror's Human Error mustered a single protest vote, losing to Brutal Truth's Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses by 21-1.

THE UPSTARTS

More Arty
Even the mighty Nasum couldn't stand against Pig Destroyer as Prowler in the Yard trounced Helvete by 15-7.

More Farty
Sakatat gave us eight blissful minutes of grind perfection with farewell album Bir Devrin Sonu, but that wasn't enough to come close to Singaporean masters Wormrot and their totally out of left field debut Abuse, which triumphed 19-2.

So that was round two. As always, you can view the updated brackets here. Just keep in mind I'll be reseeding when the first batch is done, so the matchups it shows right now might not be the final faceoffs.

Anyway, on to the 3-6 matchups.

THE GEEZERS

More Metal
3. Terrorizer-World Downfall v. 6. S.O.B.-Gate of Doom

More Punk
3. S.O.B.-Don't Be Swindle v. 6. Disrupt-Unrest


THE UPSTARTS

More Arty
3. Mortalized-Absolute Mortality 2 v. 6. GridLink-Amber Gray (ya think I did that deliberately?)

More Farty
3. Agoraphobic Nosebleed-PCP Torpedo v. 6. Kill the Client-Cleptocracy

Have at it. Once again, you have until Sunday. You can vote here or at the Facebook page, whichever is most convenient.

Terrorizer, although i'm kinda eh about this one, not a huge fan of either of these

More Punk

Disrupt, and i mean, i could give a well structured reason, but at the end of the day, FUCKING DISRUPT

More Arty: Gridlink, Jon Changs lyrics push it over the top

More Farty: ANB. always ANB. never not ANB.

Terrorizer hands down, SOB are great but cant really compare to World Downfall.

Its a tough one, but I feel Disrupt win the vote on this one.

Amber Grey. I really should give Mortalized more of a listen, but Amber Grey is the best bits of them put together with other great stuff.

Cleptocracy, I am more of an escalation of hostility man myself, but Cleptocracy is not too far of it.

World Downfall There's a tremendous amount of groove and great riffs here.

Unrest one of the first crust bands I really got into... but I feel I should vote for SOB just because that's much more of a grind album.

Amber Gray

Farts: n/a

I don't know what the right words are to properly express my contempt for SOB and Napalm Death's work being so utterly unappreciated but yeah. Dying inside a little more. Thanks :P



Igor said...

If it's any consolation, all these votes for disrupt's unrest (my vote included) made me listen to Don't Be Swindle on the way to work this morning.

Frozen Corpses seems like a more obvious choice than the PCP Torpedo, though.
