The split that reminds you that midi-grind is not dead and will never be dead, ever! This past week I’ve heard several genres I hadn’t heard of, well just like everyday. Well this one was kinda like what the fuck. When did they coin the genre post cybergrind? That just doesn’t make sense to me, am I getting old? I may have coined the phrase midi-grind, at least I think I did. Way back when Electrocutionerdz described themselves as midi-core, I played off of that and turned it into grind. I don’t know if anyone before that had even used it but I take a little responsibility, even if its just a small amount. I might have gone way off topic but what better place to talk about it then on my blog right? I guess what i’m trying to say is that its good not to feel alone. Oh, i’m sooo emo, it must be the I Killed Techno side of this split getting me all sissy about things. This split contains some of the best material ever written, in my opinion, Blind Equation brings the madness and I Killed Techno brings a new kind of darkness people only dream of. 10 tracks full of solid midi-grind to start off your month of love. Just listen to the music, its alot better then the crap you’re reading right now. -RR!
Bands come, bands go. That’s just the circle of life. In the mid 2000′s, how weird is saying that? Myspace was booming and bands had a faster way to get out to fans all over the world. Anyone who is anyone had a Myspace back in the day, even the hardcore I never had ones had one. The Leviathan’s Mandible in my opinion is one of the most underrated grindcore acts to come out during this time period. My wife was making fun of me because I was telling time by what I was using at the time which is why I used the whole Myspace angle on this post. I met these guys on Myspace, I met alot of my friends now on Myspace, that thing helped alot of us musicians get out there and put out our art. Some of us didn’t know others out there, well I can’t speak for anyone else buy myself, but that point of time was a big changing point in music on the internet. But back to the post at hand, TLM is not a band anymore but do plan on releasing one final album and do a few farewell shows sometime in the future. This Discography is a compilation of all the material recorded after becoming a full band. If you remember TLM from back in the day you remember it was a drum machine driven band and hopefully we can convince them to let us release that era of TLM some day. I would like to thank Travis and Fred for being friends with me all these years, even if its just online friends otherwise. Thanks for always coming to me when you have something special lined up for everyone. Thanks for The Leviathan’s Mandible, we all look forward to all of your future musical projects. -RR!

Uddercock brings us ‘Milking The Yule Goat’ a cute Christmas EP full of joy and happiness. 5 tracks that will make you move faster then a speeding sleigh. December comes tons of treats, this is just the beginning, just wait and see. -RR!
For the first time ever in R!R history comes a release that has an extra bonus album included in the release. Top Loader from Baton Rouge, Louisiana wanted to give you the listener an extra bonus, just like a video game you have a DLC so to speak of extra tunes not included in the original release. Hyperstar and Hypernova are a great journey through space and beyond in chiptune form. 10 tracks total on two seperate albums, what more could you ask for? You will hear more from Top Loader in the near future because we see a ton of potential in this up and coming chiptune artist. -RR!
Binatang Liar is a two piece grindcore outfit out of Indonesia. While never being in the same room they still seem to cause extreme destruction on animals and humans alike. Cats will bleed from their ears, dogs will chew off their own testicles, humans will begin bleeding from their anus. -RR!
One half of the infamous Thirsting for Men brings you this insane piece of work by the name of Pocket Monster Poacher Party. 10 tracks of pure what the fuck right in the palm of your hands. Before there was TFM there was PMPP and this just shows you the start of what was to cum. -RR!
So we continue with the back catalog that got put on hold because of bullshit life happenings and this time we bring you some harsh fucking grindcore. Easy Bake Oven brings you 20 Occurrences of a Grindcore Cliche and we gotta say this is far from cliche. You get pummeled with blasting beats so hard you think you butt hole is about to bleed. But hey don’t blame us, that’s your butt. -RR!
Before there was a James Doesn’t Exist there was Giant Peach! Super good cybergrind from our good friend Nikolai and its just as good as what he’s doing now. This kid is a nonstop music writing machine and we totally respect that kind of thing here at the robo. -RR!
