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!
Eric, the guy behind I Killed Techno brings us his new grindcore project Totally Pissed Off. You might remember TPA from our Christmas compilation and now here we have the very first full length and it is killer. Electronic grindcore from a pissed off man that rather take it out on his music then on human beings, thank satan! 9 tracks of piss in your beer brutality straight from Corpus Christi Texas.
Back when I first started ROBO! Robotica I never thought I would ever release more then just a handful of albums. At first I started this label to release my own material just for the sake of having a label to tie the album to and what not. I wasn’t really feeling other labels at the time and couldn’t trust anyone to do it the way I wanted to. But here we are now just several years later posting our 100th release and all for free. When the time was near I go a slew of emails out of nowhere with albums to be released and by the time you know it we chipped away at this release. One of those emails just happened to be Eric from I Killed Techno. We have been friends for many years and have worked together on numerous things together within our scene to try and get our names out there. Around here there isn’t many bands doing the kind of music we put out so it can be hard at times to get the right crowd. Luckily the internet has made going out a thing of the 90’s and writing music seems to be the outlet to most of us. This album brings us the struggle endured by Eric the past few months and lays all out on the table. When I received the album the tracks weren’t numbered and I asked Eric, hey whats the order in which he replied ehhh any random order is fine. I took it in my own hands and tried to capture the true story being told in music and ordered accordingly to how I thought the story might go. Go ahead, take a trip through the mind of Eric with (inverted crosses). -RR!
