If one were to think of a subgenre of metal music that seemed immune from antiquity, surely, Grindcore would be high on the list. Through it’s sheer aggression, speed, and raw intensity – coupled with lyrics ranging over numerous controversial subject matters – Grindcore has always seemed, if not fresh, at least jarring, able to slap listeners into attention without sounding dated or tedious. Grindcore’s pitfall, however, seems to have been a lack of variance – listeners seem to have become desensitized, and while many still enjoy the music, it doesn’t shock like it used to.
The years roll by and as 2015 draws ever nearer. Grindcore acts appear to be a dime a dozen. What’s saving this mighty subgenre from irrelevance, if anything?
