POWERCUP - Split 5' with Suffering Mind [2014]


DIY in the literal sense of the word, Canada's POWERCUP may book their own tours, screenprint their own shirts and press their own tofu etc, but they're also slavishly devoted to the cult of the power tool and 'Home Improvement's blue collar patriarch Tim Allen.

The gimmick alone isn't the selling point, but 2010's brilliantly named „Renovate At All Costs“, the Montreal trio's debut full-length, is a ferocious blast of rough hewn, lo-fi grind that tells its own story: dirty chugging powerviolence with plenty of gurgling low end, powered by a outside diesel generator and played on a circular saw.

These raw mince-grinding maniacs will give you a lesson in renovation through fucking noisy & dirty chugging powerviolence fueled with plenty of gurgling low end, played on a circular jigsaws and powered by an outside diesel generators. Grab your tool box, put on your tool belts & be part of the grinding cult of power tools & home renovation.


Powercup was born from the ashes of the crust grind S.D.F. (SCOFFLAW DEATH FORCE) in late 2008. Started as a two piece NOISEGRINDPUNKCRUSTNONSENSE and than took a more grindcore/powerviolence approach. After a few unsucessful attemps at being a 3 piece, they decided to permanently remain a two piece and have since toured all over the place with great bands such as DEATHTOLL 80K, PIZZAHIFIVE, VIOLENT GORGE, ARCHAGATHUS, AHNA and more. What is up next for POWERCUP only their guru and leader Tim Allen knows. PLAY FAST, SLACK HARD.
