Is it funny to anybody else that Southern Lord has gone from purveyors of all things doom, to black metal, and now to jumping onto the tr00-core scene? Extra funny because Greg Anderson, one half of drone duo Sunn O))) and Southern Lord co-founder, was actually in a vegan straight-edge band from Seattle back in the day.
That said, Atlanta-based Dead in the Dirt goes way-ass hard; conjuring memories of my brief stint as an entry-level, wannabe-crust, grindcore kid getting day drunk and listening to Insect Warfare records. In other words, it gives me the warm fuzzies of nostalgia. Great music for lamenting humanity and/or the military-industrial complex.
Stream some fantastically vitriolic grindcore below, and look for Dead in the Dirt’s new LP, The Blind Hole, on Southern Lord this Summer.- CrimeZone20xx
