Grindcore comes from the tradition of taking music, and taking all the musical elements out of it
"Wow, Grindcore makes me realize how good what I listen to is"
An extremely chaotic style of music which combines many genres, notable hardcore
. The bands may consist of a typical four piece unit (vocalist, guitarist, bassist, drummer), although some include keyboards and samples
. The vocals are almost always screaming
, and singing is very uncommon, if used at all. The time signatures, tempos, and key signatures used are often very random, and many bands in the genre are known for purposefully not keeping time. The guitar and bass are often very distorted and downtuned. All instruments usually have very random parts which usually do not use any rules of musical theory. The lyrics and song titles are also very random and usually do not make sense. A very popular way to identify these bands is by their song lengths, as they are usually approximately 1 min or less.

Grindcore is an extreme form of hardcore punk
and heavy metal
, related to both death metal
and crust punk
, but historically formed by combining elements of Hardcore Punk and early thrash metal.Grindcore is characterized by extreme speed, brutality,increadable screams/growls which sometimes are used in conjunction with a pitch shifter, discordant guitars and intense blast beats. The genre was pioneered during the early 1980s in the United Kingdom, Netherlands and Brazil by bands such as Sore Throat and Napalm Death. In the United States the genre has their roots with proto-grindcore and hardcore punk bands such as Siege, DRI, Cyanamid, Deep Wound and Repulsion.
Many of the early bands, such as Napalm Death, DRI, and Siege were seen by their contemporaries as part of the anarcho-punk and hardcore punk scenes. As many anarcho-punk and peace punk bands in England and hardcore in the United States had already incorporated elements of heavy metal into their music.
Over time grindcore has evolved into many many sub genres and has also hybridized with death metal to create death grind. Grindcore has proven somewhat difficult to categorise. Some fans and musicians have a firm concept of genre and subgenre, but others reject such categorisation as limiting or useless.

A genre of music that is meant to be pretty simple. Many grindcore bands use basic riffs at inhuman speeds and write songs ranging from 30 seconds to 2 minutes. The genre was started by Napalm Death and Carcass during the mid eighties. It later evolved to have a bunch of its own subgenres.
Goregrind which is grindcore influenced bands with gorey lyrics, the vocals almost always seem to use effects. Some goregrind is: Lymphatic Phlegm, Regurgitate, Squash Bowels, and more.
Pornogrind is usually very simple and contains a lot of erotic lyrics or odd fetishes to make the genre more humerous then serious. Some pornogrind is: The Meat Shits, Cock and Ball Torture, Anal Bleeding.
Political grindcore, Crustcore, noisecore are also some other grindcore sub-genres. But i myself don't listen to any of those so i can't really tell you what exactly they're like and what bands fall under that catagory.
Key Grindcore artists: Napalm Death, Carcass, Gut, Impetigo, Pig Destroyer, Nasum, Lymphatic Phlegm, Regurgitate, Morbid Savouring, Meat shits, Neuro-Visceral Exhumation
Slipknot is not nor anywhere near grindcore. The idiot who posted that obviously has no clue what the genre is if he seriously thinks that. Don't listen to his words, they are pretty useless.
created in the 80s, grindcore is a genre of fast/heavy music that has distorted thrashy guitars and a fast drum pattern known as the blastbeat
, usually contains a variation of screaming and growling. in some cases it's too metal for punks, or too punk for metalheads.

A genre of music that developed in the mid 80's, when punk groups such as Siege and Sore Throat began to take their respective sounds to progressively further extremes. Repulsion is considered by many to be the first "proper" grindcore band, as their 1986 demo (later released on CD as the album "Horrified" in 1989) provided the listener with all of grindcore's key ingredients: noisy, fuzzy bass, blast beats, snarled vocals, short songs (often under two minutes) and minimal guitar work which relied on repeating, hyptnotic rhythms which were similar to hardcore punk but had a notable "metal edge." In the following years, several bands release important albums that further defined the genre: Napalm Death's "Scum" (1987), Carcass's "Reek of Putrefaction" (1988) and Terrorizer's "World Downfall" (1989). These bands presented a punkish sound that was excessively noisy and chaotic, generally lacked melody and was among the most extreme music of its time. Lyrically, they generally either focused on extreme blood and gore or social/political issues. By the 1990's, grindcore began to rise in popularity, with some bands being more punk or metal than others. Among the more important bands from this era include Anal Cunt, Impetigo, Pig Destroyer, Extreme Noise Terror, Dead Infection, Regurgitate and Last Days of Humanity among others. The more significant bands from the 2000's include the likes of Fuck...I'm Dead and Agoraphobic Nosebleed. A number of different sub-genres began...more...
The melodic equivilent to prison rape. Its melodies are the musical genius of a downsyndrome patient.
Here are the positions:
Grind Core Positions.
Vocalist: Their job is to get raped, and for their voice to resemble the sound of such, For a good substitute, a Pig could be used in place for the vocalist.
Guitarist: Their Job is maybe the easiest, They only have to take a guitar and punch it on various places on the fretboard, also, the same sound is to take a pregnant woman and to psh her down stairs.
Bass: Open cords. Just basically hit it.
Drums: This one maybe quite challengeing (diffuculty rating: 1st grade) The grindcore drummer has to be suffering of epilepsy for having a seizure on the drums is the only way to get the best sound. But heres what they do; hit the snare drum at various times, rapidly, but not melodically. For the bass, just stomp every third of a second. and cymbals, just whenever you can.
With those steps you can explore the world of grindcore in no time!
James: Hey Im Going to see waking the cadaver today they're a grindcore
Mike: Oh cool, Id come but im not a manic depressive so I wont have to shoot myself. have fun though!
