Agents of Abhorrence - Grindcore 2009.

Agents of abhorrence ripped hundreds of new assholes at Grindcore 2009, hosted by No Escape Records. Broken kick drums, stage dives & general devastation made for a particularly misanthropic set on behalf of rews, jason & crumbz. Mention must also go to Roskopp, who were FUCKING ridiculous. This is the first half of the set, caught a close range.

agents of abhorrence - earth.water.sun (reviews)

Here is a collection of reviews for Agents' last full-length release:

taken from
'Hooray for Australia’s favourite grindcore supergroup! Agents Of Abhorrence have directed a tight, blunt nightmare here – thirteen tracks (including an unlisted ambient intro) blast by in under ten minutes. Such a nasty little beast. The sound is as dense as diamond and omits decorative excess – Earth.Water.Sun is just precision butchery, the totally sick wrecking of six strings, two sticks, tight skins and a pink throat. At any volume, it’s a world-class onslaught. The moments of harmony (such as Ben Andrews’ golden guitar breakdown in ‘Shock Treatment’) are few, and that’s seriously great. Kids are hungry for visceral kicks these days and this record will make them shit. It sounds like a chupacabra.
There’s a constant playoff between natural tenderness and destructive force on Earth.Water.Sun – lyrical images of salt, kisses, earth and skin serve to balance the underlying apocalyptic outlook expressed in phrases such as “the whole planet is uprooted” and “we are deeply rooted”. This conceptual album could be considered a meditation on impermanence – ‘Sentimentality & Nostalgia’, ‘Floodgate’ and ‘Outlines Remain’ are concerned with themes of a changing life, years passing, nothing lasting and memories fading. Over the course of time, both our bodies and bands will bloom and wither like the flower on this album’s cover. Farewell to the flesh… Play it again, Sam… whatever. Those are the least of our worries. Wait until the sun’s rays boil the seas. What are you doing about climate change? Earth.Water.Sun is both sonically and thematically the ultimate wake-up call.

Grindcore 2009 - Corner Hotel

Agents of Abhorrence will taking part in 'Grindcore 2009' at the Corner Hotel on the 25th of January 2009. Showcasting the best in Australian grindcore (and on a world scale), can't wait! Methinks AOA will destroy the large PA at hand as well, pure wall of sound destruction.
