Suffering Mind - "Kompleks Przemyslowo​-​Militarny" (stream)

Suffering Mind, Poland's finest (and most prolific) grindcore export, continue their blastbeat fury with a speed-shifting chunk from their upcoming split 7" with Archagathus.

It seems like Polish grindcore lifers Suffering Mind are releasing something as often as other bands practice, whether it be a split, EP, or the occasional LP (the band love odd formats, as they have currently released a record in every size from two to eight inches). What makes this acceptable is that virtually everything they release is of such a high quality that the chance to get new Suffering Mind is tough to pass up. Their sound incorporates bits of grindcore, crust punk and death metal and influences from Assück, Discordance Axis, Phobia as well as a host of others. It also includes a liberal dash of mid-paced death-doom that features prominently here, spiking the blasting passages with a heavy, Repulsion-gone-doom reek before returning to the track's frantic pace, complete with vocalist Radek's blistered-throat high screams. This forthcoming split 7" with Canadian mincecore heroes Archagathus is an excellent place to pick up in the swift stream of Suffering Mind releases.

Over the Rainbow: An Interview With Herb Alpert

Music legend Herb Alpert discusses his new album, Over the Rainbow, maintaining his artistic drive, and his place in music history. "If we tried to start A&M in today's environment, we'd have no chance. I don't know if I'd get a start as a trumpet player. But I keep doing this because I'm having fun."
