Bandcamp Chronicles: Vol. 1

Bandcamp is an awesome site. It lets artists host their music to stream for free, and lets them sell (or give away) digital copies of their music as well as physical CDs, vinyl, or other merch. Bandcamp is stupid easy to use (even I use it), and keeps the musician's focus where it should be: on the music. Anyways, I'm not here to slobber over Bandcamp itself, but over some awesome artists I've found on Bandcamp. I'll try to briefly introduce the artists and then get straight to shutting the fuck up so you can check out their pages and let their music do the talking.



Well, this actually isn't a band, but a record label run by none other than Agoraphobic Nosebleed's J. Randall. It's a label for tons of grindcore, harsh noise and powerviolence, but there are a couple unexpected releases hosted on it including Moose Children and the ever controversial Death Grips. There's a whole shit ton of stuff here, you can easily spend hours upon hours looking through different bands and albums.

The best part? Every single one of the releases on Grindcore Karaoke are free. Check it out here. Don't forget to click their logo at the top to check out even more titles!


This is some awesome rap, emceed by Maulskull. The beats are unique, the lyrics are great, and Maulskull has unbelievable flow. There are some sketch tracks on the album, similar to old school rap groups like Wu-Tang Clan, but unlike the older stuff, I find these sketches absolutely hilarious.

The album Us and Them is free on Bandcamp, or you can pick up two CDs for $10.


Check out these mofos and let me know what you think! If you find any other sweet Bandcamp artists, don't hesitate to let me know!

That's all for now, folks!
