Grindcore is the worlds fastest most aggressively intense music. Fusing the anarchistic and leftist attitudes of the UK Punk scene with the speed and drunken aggression of American Death Metal, Grindcore continues to challenge and offend most listeners.

This documentary charts the history of the music, the origins of the beat, the politics, the DIY attitudes as well as the violence in the pits.  This warts and all film features interviews and rare live recordings of Grindcore legends such as Repulsion, Siege, Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, A.C. (the joys of being in a band with Seth), Fuck The Facts, Nasum, Carcass, Cretin, and a whole load more, including the wtf of Deche Charge!

With nods to Discharge, Chaos UK and music champion John Peel, this documentary takes you on a brutal ride from it's sub-genre origins all the way to new sub-sub-genres Mincecore and Gore Grind.

'It's reinventing music and not inventing anything'.
