Bandcamp Recommendations – 3rd December 2021 #BandcampFriday

leave a comment »

Last #BandcampFriday for this year, a slightly longer list this time around.

The Danish quintet take forward their sound from JORD. One of the highlights of the year for me.

The grindcore veterans are back with a ferocious new album. It features the dual vocals of Kevin Sharp & Tomas Lindberg.

Well written brutal death metal that keeps the listener engaged throughout the 35 minutes play time. Great way to end the year for Transcending Obscurity.

Moar grindcore! This time from the Japanese grandmaster. 6 tracks of rent less aural assault.

Stunning release from the progressive masters. An album to listen to from start to end. I’ve had it on repeat for the past week.

More treasure from the Nasum vault. This is from first US tour, live at the legendary punk venue.

Gloomy 4 tracks of post metal from the Australian quartet. Perfect for this time of the year.

A sublime mix of melodic death metal and and folk metal from the UK couple.

Takafumi Matsubara

leave a comment »

Japanese guitarist Takafumi Matsubara made his mark in the past two decades with death metal act Mortalized and later grindcore quartet Gridlink. He returned back to music with Retortion Terror last year after a 4 year break due to health complications. Less than a year later, Takafumi Matsubara will release a solo album next week titled Strange, Beautiful And Fast. Described as “A once in a generation album that will leave it’s mark for years to come”, the 17 track album features the who’s who of the grindcore scene from Richard Hoak (Total Fucking Destruction) to Dylan Walker (Full Of Hell) and many more.

I am glad that Takafumi took time out to do this interview and share more details about Strange, Beautiful And Fast.
