Pigsty / Cativeiro

I bought this a little over two weeks ago (and I can hardly believe that much time has already passed since then, holy shit) at a music store when I was out of town.  I'd never listened to either band (though I think I'd heard of Pigsty before - I'd probably seen them on other download blogs), but I decided to get it based on the fact that it was a Bizarre Leprous Prod. release and it was just a dollar.  I could go on about my first impressions of the music and such, but I think I'd rather keep this post a little more concise.
Pigsty plays pleasingly noisy grindcore and Cativeiro plays goregrind in the typical South American style, perhaps with a little less gore and more grind than I'm used to my goregrind having.  I mean, it doesn't sound like the vocals are even pitch shifted!  I probably made it sound like I don't like it much, but that's not the case at all.  I especially like Cativeiro's second song.  There's something about the way the riff just keeps repeating that I enjoy.  So much for keeping this short.

Tumour / Cannibe

I'm doing a terrible job of keeping this blog updated so far.  But I'm not sure if anyone actually visits it, so at least I'm probably not disappointing anyone.  I'll post the rest of the interesting things from my personal collection (which is a regrettably small amount of things for the purposes of this blog) before I move on to worthwhile stuff I've downloaded from the internet.  As I have so far, I'm probably going to continue focusing on goregrind/gorenoise, but I'll post any underground music that I think deserves attention (speaking of the word underground, my blog title sucks and I need to come up with a better one).
Anyway, here's a pretty nice split I got about a month ago.  I think these two bands hardly need an introduction, so I'll just mention that I love the bad English in the title of Cannibe's side (I don't know, things like that just do it for me) and then let the music speak for itself.
