Get your multivitamin grind/hardcore/punk/noise fix right in the centre of Rotterdam. The infernal duo Brutal Blues came, saw and conquered Rotterdam in October 2014. Now they're back for recapitulation. Frisian veterans My Minds Mine and local heroes Sick Of Stupidity will be weighing in.
BRUTAL BLUES (no)
Authentic delta blues from Mississippi? Tough luck: Brutal Blues is face melting precision grind from Norway. The maniacal duo that already conquered WORM in 2014 consists of Steinar (mastermind behind the mighty Parlamentarisk Sodomi and Psudoku) as guitarist/vocalist and Anders (formerly of MoHa!, Noxagt, etc.) as drummer/vocalist. Grindcore hasn't seen intensity levels like Brutal Blues since Insect Warfare, we kid you not! http://zkam.org/bb/
MY MINDS MINE (nl)
Veteran Frisian band that shares more than one member with the equally impressive Blood I Bleed. By comparison My Minds Mine focus less on fastcore but more on pummeling grind in the lineage of Napalm Death, Heresy, and S.O.B. They released several EP's plus the albums "Between soothing consolation and uncontrollable madness" (2000) and "Scenes of the complete annihilation of this planet" (2002). My Minds Mine gigged extensively, including a Japan tour with Unholy Grave and others. In August 2002 My Minds Mine broke up for a ten year hiatus. Now - in true rock fashion - they are back, more solid than ever. https://www.facebook.com/mymindsmine/
SICK OF STUPIDITY (nl)
High-octane Rotterdamned punk/grind/powerviolence four-piece that catapulted to grindcore stardom in a blastbeat. Boasting (ex-) members of Jesus Cröst, Kugra and Gewoon Fuckin Raggen, this pack of rabid dogs have been crushing stages since early 2015. Their first record was given a vinyl release on Rödelrecords last October. https://sickofstupidity.bandcamp.com/
