Costectomy/Nyctophagia – “Drone Hunting Missionaries For Sport” (a 2021 split review)

After some time spent checking not so usual music with my other webpage Indokult, dedicated to the Indonesian music , I’ve started craving some more unhinged underground music again. To be precise, good old goregrind and gorenoise. No, I won’t call it a “fix”, haha, but truth is – sometimes it’s just what the doctor has ordered. You know…going full circle and so forth… read more

Massive Gore Bulge / Cop stench split cover

MxGxBx / Cop Stench – split (digital release review)

Interesting split, this one. Max and his Massive Gore Bulge project (or MxGxBx for short, and you know I’ve interviewed him, right) got featured on not one, two…neither on three, but on 4 splits in less than a month! And while his splits with Leucodistrofia and Subhuman Scum still continue in a way of his beginnings in a pure gorenoise (referring to 2018 demo, of course), interestingly, with “Trapped in the Harsh Reality of Pain” release, and split with Septic Convulsion we’re getting more of a goregrind diet than gorenoise. Not that I would complain. read more

Examining the Massive Gore Bulge (afternoon chat with Max)

Gorenoise. The Rubber Axe webzine is still dedicated also to that subgenre – or niche genre, if you will – of extreme underground music, and with new projects and recordings popping up left and right, I am obliged to see what’s new in the scene, right? read more

From Dethbridge to Westeros (spending time with Desi Wood)

Good things come to those who wait, the saying goes. And it’s no exaggeration when I say that I’ve almost given up of having Desi’s answers in the Rubber Axe webzine, but sometimes just things have their own peculiar way to reach us. read more

Locked down in Russia (an interview with Sergey Krechetov)

We’re no strangers to Russian underground scene – but we’ve only started to dip in the large reservoir of the sounds and noises coming from there. That’s why I always welcome the opportunity to learn more about various artists/labels from Russia. You could be familiar with Olga Tlen (and you should), and now, let’s welcome another noise artist – Sergey Krechetov. read more

Anus Tumor/Nephrectomy/Gangrene Discharge (3-way CD split)4

What a surprise – and a pleasant one! I’ve encountered Nephrectomy and Gangrene Discharge previously, so I’d known what to expect, but – thanks to Samuele Lami from Eyes Of The Dead Productions – this was my first time I’ve been exposed to Anus Tumor and their offering, which, although not really goregrind, it’s perfect. read more
