grinding violence since 1994
MINDFLAIR are a band from Germany that plays a very fast and aggressive form of grindcore along with some elements of crust, power violence and hardcore
You walk into the club and MINDFLAIR are blaring, you say "Hell yes" because the band is simply that much fun. MINDFLAIR are fairly easy listening for grindcore. They have very distinctive riffs that are surprisingly easy to latch on too. There is a sense of fun, and even hope that you get in these songs as they guide you to oblivion. MINDFLAIR go at a million miles an hour and rarely ever breakdown, but when they do, it gets gloriously heavy. The high pitched rabid screams that punch out over top of the punishing grooves help to create an all out sonic assault that keeps this band charming and a joy to listen too. MINDFLAIR have the power to inspire circle pits, yet their clear grooves mean that this is grindcore you can listen too around the home, as silly as that might sound. Turned on to a different idea of what it means to grind, these guys are one of the most exciting bands on WOOAAARGH and EveryDayHate. They might just allow the most extreme of subgenres to turn the page.
