  • Grindcore

    The first styles of Grindcore emerged as the stylic continuance of Crust Punk, and Crust Punk is a sub-genre of Hardcore Punk. It’s almost like a family tree, if you can picture it that way. Think of it like, Hardcore Punk, and Thrash Metal get married, and have a baby. Their baby is Anarcho-Punk. Anarcho-Punk, and Hardcore Punk have incestual sex, and spawn Crust Punk. Afterwards, Crust Punk runs off, freaks out, and marries Black Metal, but cheats on Black Metal with Hardcore Punk, and spawns Grindcore! Yes, it’s a little round-a-bout and kind of sick, but, so is the music industry in general. Grindcore contains influences from all these genres and subgenres; the shrieking, high pitch vocals of Black Metal, with the musical styles of Hardcore Punk, Crust Punk, and Thrash Metal.
