Grindcore Bracketology 3: The 4-5 Matchups

Despite Jon Chang's laughably desperate attempt to stuff the ballot box by voting twice, some of his favorite records just got torched. I call that justice. Everyone savor the tears of his failure. Which sons of bitches met their mortality? Read on.

THE GEEZERS

More Metal
S.O.B.'s Gate of Doom met its World Downfall at the hands of Terrorizer, falling by 16-2 (and I only counted one of Jon's votes).

More Punk
Disrupt disrupted S.O.B.'s second entry in the contest when Unrest stomped all over Don't Be Swindle by 13-5.


THE UPSTARTS

More Arty
No matter who goes down, Takafumi Matsubara won this round, and you guys decided GridLink's Amber Gray was superior to Mortalized's Absolute Mortality 2 by 14-4.

More Farty
Kill the Client's Cleptocracy stole the show, outlasting Agoraphobic Nosebleed's PCP Torpedo by 9-6.

As always, the updated brackets are available for your perusal here.
So that brings us to the last batch for the first round. Here are the 4-5 matchups. As always, you have until Sunday to vote either here or at the Facebook page, whichever suits you. Just a friendly reminder, you only get to vote once (*cough*Chang*cough).

arekusu, i thought really damn long and hard about putting dogma on here because i just fucking love the shit out of that band. but i figured it might be too obscure to qualify as a classic. that's also a band i've wanted to interview pretty much from day one of starting the blog but just never been able to hunt them down. asterisk*, if you see this, please contact me!

Reek of Putrefaction. Had it been Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses result might of been different.

Anticapital. I am suprised its not Misery Index up there, far better release and also part of your dirty baker dozen releases, even so Anticapital is a phenomenal release.

Altered States of America. Totally different to pretty much anything else out there, but it works so damn well.

Suffering Mind. Pretty much the perfect match up of Phobia, Assuck and a shit load of crusty stuff. (New full length slated for 2013 :) )
