A subgenre of grindcore that takes the concept of grindcore to further extremes. Grindcore and goregrind can sometimes be confused, but there are some distinct differences.

1) The lyrical content of the songs are usually very gore-related, awash with medical terms, and other stomach-churning bodily functions. While grindcore can talk about such subjects, grindcore tends to focus its lyrical content more on political issues.
For example, the goregrind band Last Days of Humanity's songs focus on these gore-related topics, with titles such as "In Advanced Haemorrhaging Conditions", "Covered With Feces as Decoration", and "Cataleptic Liver Explosion".

2) The most obvious difference between goregrind and grindcore is its use of pitch-shifted vocals, which creates an extremely low gurgle noise. This noise can be compared to a deep belch. Due to this, the lyrics are generally rendered incomprehensible.

3) The guitar riffs and overall sound have more of a "metal" feel" than grindcore, which has more of a hardcore punk dominated sound.

However, the two genres are similar in many ways. Both tend to have very short songs, and are very fast, chaotic, and the lyrics are typically difficult, if not impossible, to comprehend.
Goregrind music is not for mainstream music listeners, to say the least.

An extremely abrasive form of grindcore characterized mainly by lyrics revolving around medical terms, noisy riffs, and pitchshifted vocals. Carcass is considered the first goregrind band, but some other goregrind bands include Regurgitate, Haemorrhage, Cock and Ball Torture, and The County Medical Examiners

Goregrind really makes me want to plaster myself in baby shit and roll around in a pile of septic, regurgitated cow spleen, while chomping on coagulated balls of vein tissue.

Grindcore music that consists of notoriously short songs, headache-inducing noise, and lyrics that will make you vomit on yourself. Some great examples are Regurgitate, Meat Shits, Cock and Ball Torture, Anal Blast, and Paracoccidioidomicosisproctitissarcomucosis.
Goregrind is great! Except the fact that goregrind bands love to use complex words to describe something disgusting.

goregrind is gore-obsessed grindcore,and remember this: grindcore and death-metal are two different things!

A type of heavy metal. Just like grindcore, but played so fast it sounds like white noise with a giant cricket belching "reeeee reeeeee reeee" for the vocal track. Songs usually aren't over 30 seconds long and there is almost always a movie sample or two to go with each one.
Intense Hammer Rage is my favorite gore grind band.
