Member of Ripped To Shreds gets inspired in Taiwan and starts new one man goregrind band Houkago Grind Time.
“HOUKAGO GRIND TIME is a one man goregrind band inspired by a chance meeting with legendary Midwest goremaster Harlan (Bodies Lay Broken, The Men’s Toilet, Pantalones Abajo Marinero), who performed in Taipei alongside my main band Ripped to Shreds. He invited me to play guitar with him at Antimusic Fest 2019 in Extremely Brutal, and in the process of learning his riffs for the set, I gained a renewed appreciation for mid90s gore, and rekindled my desire to play drums again. I decided to make the band about wholesome KyoAni anime because singing endlessly about dead bodies and politics is depressing and I’m not good at that anyways. Although HOUKAGO GRIND TIME is only me in the ‘studio,’ I will perform HGT live in Ohio next year and hopefully also live in Taiwan and Japan soon.
I have completed the HOUKAGO GRIND TIME side of the upcoming 3 way split with ExExGxDx and Hit-Run Drivers, and am waiting on the ExExGxDx logo to be finished before finalizing the cover. With any luck we will have this split out on cassette before the end of the year, but I think January at the latest it will be ready. Expect more pingpong minceblasting anime goreshit.”
