About a month ago, I posted up an article by Nick from The Communion, where he talked about his favourite record of all time. Since that post went up, he's written back to me with a top-ten that he calls "Top Ten Records You've Never Heard But Should". So without further ado here's the list and apologies for the delay in publishing it.
Anal Birth - “Mutilated Infant”
I don't go to parties often, but when i do i make sure my Anal Birth t-shirt is pressed and ready for the shindig. On a serious note: Adam Rotella is the only musician on Long Island that matters.
Visceral Evisceration - “Incessant Desire For Palatable Flesh”
Gothic Death Metal in the vein of Paradise Lost, Tiamat, and the like.... only about literally cutting up and eating human vaginas.
Brobdingnagian - “TortureStainedDisaster”
Black noise sludge mutants. Makes Burmese sound well adjusted and emotionally considerate.
Brute Chant - “Killer Each Of You”
A must for fans of surrealistic progressive death metal ala Demilich, Pyrrhon, Artificial Brain, Pillory, Disharmonic Orchestra, and the like.
Desalvo - “Mood Poisoner”
The greatest AmRep release not released by AmRep.
Undinism - “Born With An Erection”
Mondo perverse grindcore from the world's greatest grind community; Australia.
Cut Your Throat - “S/T”
Unspeakably vicious grind from Greece.
Thoughts Of Ionesco - “A Skin Historic”
90s hardcore taken to the kind of depths of pure intensity only found on the heaviest moments of Swans first few releases.
Kickback - “No Surrender”
I've heard fewer records more violently discomforting than this, especially in the "dark hardcore" subgenre.
Born Without A Face - “Worship”
The embodiment of the transition between DRI's crossover and Rorschach's metalcore.
