Cybergrind — the ultimate metal music online community, from the creators of

Cybergrind is a genre mixing Electronic and Grindcore. Bands that play this style make use of synths, computers, and drum machines in addition to the usual guitars and bass, while some bands use synths, MIDI files, and drum machines exclusively.

Many Cybergrind bands tend to have little to no influence or relation to metal. Japan's Catasexual Urge Motivation formed in 1992 is generally considered the first Cybergrind group with a drum machine nicknamed Cyber E.M.F. Other notable Cybergrind bands include the United States Agoraphobic Nosebleed formed in 1994, and Australia's The Berzerker formed in 1995.

You know what? I was going to try to review “Dirt” by Alice In Chains, but I can’t. I can’t give it an objective review in any way, shape or form. I tried to listen to it for the first time the other day, got thoroughly bored with it, so I stopped.

Age and attitude has a lot to do with it. Alice In Chains was supposed to be the more metal side of the grunge movement, but I’m too old and cynical to buy into the teen angst it embodied. Even when I was a teenager I had more important things to do than to wallow in self-pity, like working to help keep the family farm afloat, while getting myself an education so I wouldn’t be trapped trying to scratch a living from the land. Yes, “Dirt” is meant to follow the emotional descent of someone falling into the clutches of an eventually fatal heroin habit, but that world, and those emotions, are alien to me. While I understand mental illness and depression, I just don’t get self-pity and addiction.

“Dirt” may have been exotic and fresh when it was first recorded in 1992, but a quarter of a century has been unkind. What little of the music I do recall sounded flat and dull. Perhaps it is the radio-friendly imitators and mimics which have spoiled Alice In Chains’ aura, or perhaps it is rose-tinted spectacles which keep this album held in such a high regard. Whatever it is, I didn’t like it enough to listen to it all the way through, and you can’t give half an album a fair review.

Just as I was considering something drastic, like mowing the lawn or doing the dishes because they were more interesting than “Dirt”, this little gem popped up on YouTube. “The Black EP” by Grinder is essentially the antithesis of “Dirt”. It is short, sharp, and silly. What could be less serious than coffee-themed grindcore with a real, genuine grinder on vocals? Yes, Grinder’s vocalist is a coffee grinder.

For anyone outside the grindcore sphere of influence, this may sound utterly inane and childish. Perhaps it is. However, jump online and check out even just a handful of grindcore demos and the thing which strikes you almost immediately is how atrociously recorded the vocals are. Grunts, groans, shrieks, growls, and even screams can end up sounding like a gurgling drain or a boiling kettle. It seems to be a hard task to keep already tortured vocals anywhere near intelligible when all other instruments around are raging at, for want of a better expression, full noise.

So Grinder offers nothing but a fun gimmick. The song titles are completely meaningless because the vocals are nothing but the sound of coffee beans having the caffeine powdered out of them, and possibly the resulting beverage percolating in the fires of hell. The music itself though is well above average for this style of release. There is the obligatory insane drum programming, set to an inhuman tempo, overlaid with crushing guitar and bass noise. There’s a couple of funny coffee-related samples, and song titles like “Beans of Prey” and “Hot Water Death Bath”.

What does it all mean? Fuck all. Why listen to it? Pure escapism. Is it better than Alice In Chains’ “Dirt”? I think so. Will anyone else? Probably not, but fuck ‘em. They can write their own review.

PleaseEatTheFuckingSandwichBitch gave me a great impression of how varied the cybergrind genre can be with the debut album, and was more on the instrumental side. PETFSB 4 includes more vocals, in a mix of distorted and glitched screams/growls as well as digitized voices. This does not sacrifice much of the interesting bits of the music though.

"Redneck 420" plays mostly in digitized grind, but the best part of the song actually comes in a short and strangely fitting bridge. It's a pretty simple little sci-fi melody of bleeps and bloops with a cool bassline, but damn is it catchy. Not to mention it's pretty feel good, which creates a pretty hilarious contrast when it's immediately followed up with a return to grind with the growled line of "Okay motherfuckers!". My personal favorite track on the album is the cleverly titled instrumental "PayEmilyTenFlyingShrimpBooks 4", which is an incredibly catchy track in the vein of the debut album.

Overall, PETFSB 4 is a pretty good follow-up to the debut, my only complaint is that I would have liked a bit more room for the instrumentals to shine. Not that you can't hear it, but the digitized voices (Not the growls) can get a bit overbearing sometimes. This is a minor complaint though, so If you're a fan of cybergrind, I highly recommend this album and PETFSB 1. Hope you found this review helpful, feel free to comment!

Time to Grind 'n' Roll_

I think we've all been there, where we find a band with such a ludicrous band or album name that we can't help but check out. Please Eat the Fucking Sandwich Bitch is one of those bands, but it can be rare for these bands with ridiculous names to be any good. Is PETFSB one of the better bands of their kind, or are they another mediocre group with a wild name?

For a cybergrind band, a sub-genre of grindcore, PETFSB is quite varied. Mixed in with noisy digitized breakdown-grindcore that sounds like the original Doom soundtrack on steroids, are songs that would actually sound right at home on a Sega Genesis, SNES, or classic MS-DOS game. Among the best examples of this are tracks like 'Get Funkey' and the chillout beat of 'Hoe'. The noisy songs are pretty good too, especially 'OMG DUh' and the crunchy bit-crushed 'HardGrind'. '$iick' may very well be my favorite, which sounds less like grindcore and more like a 16-bit remix of a thrash metal song.

That's about all there is to say, a quite varied album. However, I think this is more for the metalheads that love retro video games as well. Listening to this makes me want to play some Doom II and have this in the background, while someone who isn't into old games like that may not get as much enjoyment out of it. I'd say it's worth a listen, especially if you're into all of those 8-bit versions of metal songs.

Hope you found this review helpful, feel free to comment!

"The Berzerker" is the self-titled debut full-length studio album by Australian, Melbourne based grindcore act The Berzerker. The album was released through Earache Records in April 2000. The Berzerker is widely regarded as one of the pioneers of drum machine grindcore along with an act like Agoraphobic Nosebleed. There are of course loads of artists practicing this style, but The Berzerker is one of the most successful ones.

The music on the album is grindcore with death and industrial metal influences. The latter influence mostly stems from the fact that the drums on the album are programmed and as a consequence there is a cold mechanical edge to the band´s sound. I´m often reminded of early Carcass if they had used programmed drums. Mostly because of the sick gurgling/gargling and growling/higher pitched snarling vocals, but also because of the prominent use of eerie voice samples with pathologists talking about their job. There are also samples from horror movies. It´s just an influence though and ultimately The Berzerker have quite a unique sound and for a grindcore act also quite a varied sound. The use of samples and the occasional use of keyboards really enhance the dark and eerie atmosphere of the band´s music. Towards the end of the album, the diversity of the band´s music goes a little overboard though and they close the album with two noise tracks, that might challenge even the most ardent extreme metal fan.

Besides those two closing tracks the other 13 tracks on the 40:55 minutes long album are high energy aggressive grindcore tracks featuring very convincing and varied extreme vocals. Personally I find this both original (well... at least within the boundaries of the genre) and highly enjoyable and a 4 star (80%) rating is fully deserved.

Wow, first review. Yea, this band isn't as heard of, because of their obscenities, mainly that they dress up like insects.

I love this band, mainly on their appearance yes, but also of their musical abiliity.

Taking a mathcore, math metal direction and mixing it with a more technical texture (not just random screams and dischords) and a more hardcore definition of the genre. Their music is incredibly virtuostic and very fiere.

This album is only 20 minutes long, but it is to the point and doesn't really need to be longer. They came saw and concured within less than a half an hour.

1. Aotkpta - The intro is just mezmerising. The time changes are incredibly frantic and fast. Their is also a quite doomy quallity to this song. 10/10

2. We Have Reached An Official Verdict: Nobody Gives A Shit - Love the title. Quite cathcy in a mental way. 10/10

3. The Unwilling...Led By The Unqualified...Doing The Unnecessary...For The Ungrateful - Has alot of multimodal textures and shows alot of ability. 10/10

4. One Manometer Away From Mutually Assured Relocation - Koo Koo crazy with some amazing instrumental work. 9/10

5. Full Frontal Obscurity - Pretty amazing vocal performance. 8/10

6. Scavenger, Invader - The very noisy keyboards are cool. The vocals are pretty impressive. 10/10

7. Hot Tubs Of Brand New Fuel - The lyrics are pretty cool. Again, incredibly frantic. 9/10

8. God Wants Us All To Work In Factories - Again, some amazing lyrics. Love the title. 9/10

9. Book Of Bot - The longest song, being just 4 minutes. Has a very experimental side. The noisy parts are very cool. 9/10

10. Slum Service (Served On The Sky) - Short and sweet. 9/10

11. Tower Of Mammal - Good ending to a crazy album. 8/10

CONCLUISION: A whole bag of crazy. I love this album.
