The Great Grand Discussion of Punk...
I have very selective taste when it comes to punk. I think I could say I like Black Flag, Dead Kennedys and The Adolescents... but I never got into East-coast scene. Bad Brains is mixed bag for me and I can stand it sometimes but not often.
Grindcore is even more hit or miss I like some Napalm Death songs but not any albums. For instance Apex Predator is quite nice album and intro song is very nice https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpXqQvtgmVA
but at the end of a day I like more old school death metal or black metal which definitely has punk elements in it.
Also Easy Meat (the link above) is more akin to something industrial or no-wave would.
I use Napalm Death's Justin Broadrick as an awkward transition to Godflesh and Swans. Sometimes the heaviness an weight really is in the slowness and grittiness.
This doesn't really belong to Punk/Grindcore topic but I found interesting music from "Naujawanan Baidar" a one man band from US-Afghan person who plays every afghan instrument on 4-track and makes somekind of lo-fi psychedelic music. Nevertheless the last track "Panj Ruz Pesh" is in my opinion the best because of all of the noise.
There is zurna, a reed instrument barely audible and it adds very nice atmosphere to it and I think in my mind of all of the wars this region has gone through, all repression and misery and suffering and what a wonderful mess of noise this song became.
