Blast Worship: Wreck

Where they from? Giessen, Germany. Apparently Giessen is the home of the “Giessen 46ers,” a basketball team that has won the Basketball Bundesiglia championship five times. Fun fact: professional wrestler Kevin Nash actually played for them towards the end of his pro basketball career. Wow, talk about the absolute insane shit you find when you…

Blast Worship: Hate for Humanity

Where they from? San Pedro, California. You literally could not think of a more generic name for a town in California than ‘San Pedro.’ That sounds like one of those made up neighborhoods in the Grand Theft Auto series. Why the hype? I’d like to take a minute to dissect and analyze the promotional paragraph…

Blast Worship: ASADA

Where they from? Brownsville, Texas. Is it just me or does the word “Brownsville” just scream poop joke?

I can’t think of a less brutal-sounding town for a grindcore band to be from than Myrtle Beach. It almost undoes any type of edginess or anger inherent in the music. Like, “Yeah, that band’s…

Blast Worship: Chepang

Where they from? Brooklyn by way of Nepal. I have never been to Nepal but but from what I hear they have a lot of big hills over there. Remember back in the ’90s when all those documentaries came out about people who died trying to climb to the top of Mount Everast? Am I…

Blast Worship: Snagg

Where they from? Houston, Texas, which is also colloquially known as “H Town,” a rather unimaginative nickname but we’ll spare them the criticism we would save for other cities. Did you know Robocop was filmed in Houston? Oh shit, I actually just looked it up and it was filmed in Dallas. Damn, there goes my…
