Endless Grinning Skulls

Nottingham’s hardcore punk lineage has always been stronghold the genre’s nastier tendencies. Almost as though the city’s sonic language had been dredged up from the bed of the filthy River Trent that runs straight through it’s heart. Endless Grinning Skulls are one of the town’s latest exports and their pedigree is beyond question. These lifers have rooted their sound in the dirt of anarcho legends like Anti-Sect and Rudimentry Peni but injected it with contemporary forcefulness. 2011’s self titled debut lp seemed to turn heads both at home and abroad, and this month sees the release of the all new “Fear, Ignorance, Control” e.p. on hip young label Viral Age Records. Which no doubt will have the crust hordes singing along to every word word by the next time they play out.


Lich are a band from London who could teach the vast majority of metallic crust bands a few things, both about sheer sonic violence and injecting said violence with a bit of imagination. Featuring members of the much underrated Battle Of Wolf 359, Lich have earned a venue flattening reputation at hardcore shows up and down the country and this summer they’ve put out yet another split release, this time with south coast thrashcore band Man Hands. If you thought tragedy had wimped out on their last record, then check this.
