Grind and powerviolence are two genres that I like but have far to less knowledge off. I always feel that for some reason,I have no overview of things happening in that scene. Another issue is that I don’t care about all the funny grind bands. I have no desire to listen to intentionally bad music about porn and sex with goats.
But from time to time (and I noticed it became more and more frequent in the last years) I go on a search on the internet for good new grind and powerviolence bands. That is the way I discovered Stimulant a few days ago, and they have been on constant rotation here.
They are a new powerviolence band by ex members of Water torture (a band that I did discover approximately 30 minutes before I discovered Stimulant, but you should still check them out. )
On their first record, Stimulant brings us 21 tracks and most of them are furious, powerviolence/ fast hardcore with brutal slow parts songs. The other tracks are noisy intermezzo’s. Especially the songs Massive strike and Punishment are very efficient in getting you totally psyched.
