I've been into this band called "Heidnik" but there's like .000000000001% chance that anyone here has heard of them (unless they were into Phily Grind 10 years ago)
And I've heard the band Oktober Sky (myspace ftw) and all their later projects.
I have some (not much) number 12 looks like you (is that grindcore??) I've heard it was mathcore. maybe someone was stupid.

Anyways. Point of this thread.

edit: from the thread i posted above

Grindcore

The genre was pioneered during the mid-1980s in the United Kingdom by bands such as Napalm Death and Sore Throat, the name "grindcore" having actually being coined by Napalm Death's drummer Mick Harris, though its roots are in American hardcore punk and hardcore punk influenced heavy metal bands, such as Siege, D.R.I., Deep Wound, and Repulsion.

Early grind bands such as Napalm Death and Extreme Noise Terror wrote lyrics dealing with social and political themes, in line with American hardcore bands at the time, however lyrics dealing with gore and violence became a mainstay in grindcore after Carcass released Reek of Putrefaction in 1988, with lyrics lifted out of medical dictionaries and surgery reports. Grindcore lyrics can typically involve pornography, murder, surgery, and even unintelligible nonsense as lyrics, with some bands not publishing any lyrics at all.

Sonically, Grindcore generally has more of an emphasis on noise and or speed rather than musicianship. Songs are often blurs of noise around one minute in length, guitar solos are rare, and riffs are simple downtuned progressions played at high speed. Vocals often vary between a death metal style growl and a high pitched screech, sometimes in quick succession. Drumming on the whole is incredibly fast, with some modern bands like Agoraphobic Nosebleed opting for a drum machine rather than a human drummer, such bands are often jokingly refered to as "Cybergrind".

Other modern grindcore variants include noisecore (more closely related to hardcore) whos features include feedback, out of tune or improvised instruments, bad production high pitched hardcore style vocals.

Grindcore often blurs the boundary between genres, with some bands leaning more towards the hardcore punk end of the spectrum and others sounding very remnicsent of death metal, such as Exhumed, Impaled and Napalm Death's newer releases.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

^^I love you... If I could sig that I would. Most favorite post I've ever seen. Thanks so much man!


Yeah BassGuitarGod.. Uhh I've heard all those bands before... Not into it... Can't stand deathcore either

Vandals: Bahh I did a search for grindcore... But I suck and didn't even see that thread.. I'm also asking any songwriters how to write grindcore... Cause I don't even know where to start, but I'd love to get how the genre works before i go to start something, ya know what I'm saying? But thanks

Ugg im kyle: Yeah prolly THE Oktober Skyline (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=47245545 these guys?? if so.. then yeah... they kick soooo much ass)... Lol I just foud them while looking for heidnik vids and apparently they gigged together at least once. And you seriously have heard of Heidnik?? One of the few... blessed few.... Yeah their guitarist teachers at my local guitar shop (Jordan) Have you ever seen them live or do you just have their music. I sadly did not hear of them until last year (through the afformentioned guitarist...)
Also, a little PS for yer... Basicaly Heidnik started a new band in 2006 er sometime around there (it's not all the members but whatev). They're called Witness To The End. It's not Grindcore, but it still kicks ass
