Grindcore Alphabet: S

Though E may be the most frequently used letter in English, S is apparently the most common letter in grindcore. Unlike that lazy, shiftless letter Q, S is bringing it big this week with a full 42 songs for your consumption. It's by far the single largest haul to be had of the whole alphabet.

Senseless Apocalypse, Sick Terror, and Say Why?, as if you needed any more. Nice mix, dude.

Murk said...

Sarlacc...can't believe I'm seeing that name on this site. I've played a good number of shows with them, as well as with bands involving their members. Not sure how I feel about their inclusion....

Dude, I was going to make my one and only "OHBUTYOUSHOULDHAVEPUTTHISONTHERE" to say Senseless Apocalypse, but I was beaten to the punch.

For real, though, lots of neat shit here, cheers.

Andrew Childers said...

yeah. dunno how senseless apocalypse slipped past me. major oversight there. i knew juggling that many bands somebody big would get lost.

murk: i dunno how i feel about sarlacc either. ha. i had high hopes for a star wars themed grind band but i guess that isn't the chosen one.

metaldose said...

wow. i need to revisit siege and sore throat, they are gathering some dust. found a couple missed: suicide nation (usa), saturation, soul compost (usa)

I have the Japanese Assault comp that Senseless Apocalypse pretty much dominates. What else of theirs should I try to track down next?

Help! In the 'C' package there seems to be an extra track not listed in the package... "Skewered" (54 secs)?? Who is this??

Andrew Childers said...
