SECONDGRADEKNIFEFIGHT is batshit crazy, and I mean that in the best way possible. The band opts for 30 to 60 second blasts of noisy, violent, caustic and mathy grindcore in the vein of Robinson, The Great Redneck Hope (minus any sense of repetitious melodies), The Sawtooth Grin and Daughters.

I first checked out the band when they released 'pg 1' back in February of 2017, and now that I've sit down to write it I see that SECONDGRADEKNIFEFIGHT has quickly dropped another EP and LP in the subsequent five months. That's commitment! So instead of talking about each song and release, I'll just stick to a quick format.

The 'pg 1' LP (although it's only five minutes and change) was quickly followed by the 'pg 2' EP in mid-2017, both of which showcase insane grindy mathcore influenced by the aforementioned bands, with a few exceptions, such as "redneck inter-lewd-acts 23 (keep on truckin)" which nods at Heavy Heavy Low Low after the 20-second mark. In between these two parts came the 21-second single "think again Tommy I stole your mom's dildo (live laugh love)" that's par for the SECONDGRADEKNIFEFIGHT course.

The band's newest endeavor, a split with The Cheeseburger Picnic is extreme even for SECONDGRADEKNIFEFIGHT standards, which opens with the very hellish "youd better fuckin not you jackass" followed by the hyperspeed drumming and venomous vocals of "let me tell you a story about a kid named brandice". "green eggs and the hamburglars revenge (don't you even think about eating those cat turds timothy)" incorporates demonic growls alongside the shrieking as well as some pretty sweet guitar riffs ala The Great Redneck Hope. There's also the noisy clusterfuck that is "shut it up me" while in "living with droopy dog gave me the boom snap (it was actually the clap)" the instrumentals are not unlike The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza. This is definitely my favourite release and the closing track happens to be my jam as "i went to a carnival with the cheesburger picnic and i left with two stuffed bears and half a dirty popsicle" adds in some synth for a Devola and Genghis Tron feel.

Jonah (guitar) of SECONDGRADEKNIFEFIGHT recently did an interview on a two-hour session of SheepsXClothing which you can stream a video of here. He also plays in WristMeetRazor which is a killer band and will be reviewed tomorrow (July 18th) on this blog.
