The Pitch: 9 minutes is all you need when it comes to the uncompromising grind of SLC's Gouged.  FFO Vermin Womb, Pig Destroyer

What I Like: Feels like it's been a while since I covered a straight-up grindcore release.  This EP is just the thing to break the drought.  Seriously, these guys accomplish a more severe beating in 9 minutes than most can with hours of torment.  They don't have time for all the table-strapping and precision tools.  Gouged would much prefer to find you in an dark alley, hit you over the back of the head with a brick, repeatedly stomp you into submission, and then walk away without so much as a word of explanation.  "No Remorse."  Exactly.  This is classic grindcore spirit through and through: raw production, crusty drums, and eviscerating vocals.

What I Don't Like: The emergency room bill is going to be a b!#ch.

The Verdict: The most fun you can have getting the puss beaten out of you.  Name Your Price for this monstrosity below.

Flight's Fav's: Pig, No Remorse, Blind To The Pain
