Archagathus - Canadian Horse (2011)

Artist: Archagathus
Country: Raleigh, North Carolina
Album: Canadian Horse
Year: 2011
Genre: Mincecore/Grindcore

What up guys?  I haven't posted any good grind in a while, let alone posted at all.  So, I thought I'd look into the archives and give you guys a Christmas present.  I haven't listened to this band in probably like 10 years.  I had forgotten about them, but I thought I'd check back and see what they had been up to.  Well they have been killing it with some sick ass albums.  "Canadian Horse" is a fucking grindcore gem.  Check this shit out and have a merry Christmas or whatever you celebrate.

On a side note: there is a band called "Agathocles," who coined their style of grindcore "mincecore."  Well, "Agathocles" is named after a real greek tyrant from more than 2000 years ago.  Agathocles had a grandson by the name of Archagathus.  So they are the grandsons of mincecore lol.  Just a little fun fact for you guys ;]

Church Of Misery - And Then There Were None... (2016)

Artist: Church Of Misery
Country: Tokyo, Japan
Album: And Then There Were None...
Year: 2016
Genre: Stoner Metal/Doom Metal

I've been a big fan of this band for a while now.  Everything I've heard by them is excellent.  Before listening to this album was the first time I was skeptical of how the quality would be.  The entire band pretty much disbanded leaving the bassist as the only remaining member.  I don't know all of the details, but apparently the bassist put together an entire new band and they wasted no time writing a new full length.  The only name I knew was the new lead singer, Scott Carlson, who is also the lead singer of grindcore legends "Repulsion".  Anyways, I was not disappointed, this is the same old church of misery.  I wouldn't have even know the lineup changed had I not seen the news.  Pick it up and enjoy the groovy ass serial killer doom.

Amon Amarth - Jomsviking (2016)

Artist: Amon Amarth
Country: Tumba, Sweden
Album: Jomsviking
Year: 2016
Genre: Melodic Death Metal

Amon Amarth has been around for quite a while and has gained huge notoriety in the death metal genre.  Known for their viking theme, they have a massive following.  I've never consistently kept up with them, but I check out an album of theirs from time to time.  Jomsviking is some of the best material that I've heard from these guys.  Although it's really heavy it seems like they've toned down slightly from previous releases.  However, this doesn't take away from their sound, sounding just as melodic and groovy as ever.  Give Jomsviking a try, you won't be disappointed.

Smoke DZA - He Has RIsen (2016)

Artist: Smoke DZA
Country: Harlem, New York
Album: He Has Risen
Year: 2016
Genre: Rap

The Kushed God's latest release, which I believe is an LP, just came out.  Didn't really hear anything about this one, I just stumbled across it.  I've always enjoyed this guys shit, and this is sounding pretty damn good.  There's 9 tracks with no features except for Snoop Dogg on one song.  It's pretty short, but at least there's no filler here.  Same old DZA, different tape.
