Grindcore

Microscopic thrash metalGrindcore is a combination of thrash metal, speed metal, hardcore punk ,and death metal. The genre is typified by atonal chromatic guitar riffs borrowed from thrash and speed metal and the guttural growling vocals of death metal combined with the hardcore punk attitude. Its name comes from the grinding of simple chromatic guitar riffs and melodies and the attitude of hardcore punk.

One of the early innovators of grindcore was a British band called Napalm Death who did much to fuel the popularity of the genre. Focusing on subjects like political unrest, hate and aggression this British band from Birmingham is considered to be one of the founders of the grindcore movement. Carcass from Liverpool, England is considered a major inspiration for most grindcore bands covering subjects like death, politics, and gore related subject matter before their dissolution.

Rose on fireGodflesh also from Birmingham combined industrial influences together with grindcore releasing their well received Streetcleaner and Stateslave albums before they too dissolved their band.

Based in the underground grindcore is alienated intentionally from the mainstream and is kept alive by a small core group of diehard fans.
