Marry me.

Yes, genuine grindcore is the ultimate form(IMO) of nihilistic angsty expression and the angriest outlet out there both lyrically and musically. I don't think any other kind of music gets noisier, rawer, but so plain DIRECT and authentic than grind(and I'm a big brutal/tech DM fan).

I really think albums like Scum, From Enslavement to Obliteration, Mentally Murdered, World Downfall, etc. are the soundtrack to the modern age we live in, where disinformation, ignorance and intolerance, materialism, mass appeal and multi-national corporations reign supreme. Despite death metal and extreme music in general having evolved and changed so much, gotten so extreme nowadays, I don't think any modern extreme band could surpass the authentic, non-forced angriness and social awareness that is conveyed in grindcore music. A lot of bands these days just force the emotion to "sound brutal", rather than authentically representing the way they feel when they write a song.
