The United Arab Emirates is a country consisting of expatriates from around the world. Grindcore band Maticrust has been in the country for 5 years and made of of expats from the Philipines and India. This week, they released their first EP Inhumane World Deprivation. I spoke to vocalist Dondon Crust about the EP, performing at Obscene Extreme and also their plans for the rest of the year.

Not your run of the mill grindcore.
Peter Shallmin (ESCAPETHECULT, Kamlath) put together an avant-garde grind project called Stench Price featuring members of Brutal Truth, Necrophagist, Cynic, Hail of Bullets, Paganizer, Putrevore, etc. The project’s self titled EP can best be described as grindcore with offbeat bossa/samba and lounge music unlike anything I have heard before.
