You Must Listen to OSK. Right Now!!

     Every once and a while, I come across a grind band that truly excites me. A band that writes such great songs, and has such a great sound to them, that I take it upon myself to try and obtain everything that said band has released. OSK, is one of those bands. Hailing from the Great White North(specifically Vancouver), and with members of Massgrave in their ranks to boot. OSK, in a nutshell, create great, wonderful grindcore influenced powerviolence songs. Fast songs that blast out and end in the blink of an eye, but they also know how to right a catchy song with a great riff. For example, "Endless Repent", which has one of the best outro riffs I've heard in a while.
     I've been a fan of these guys for a few months now, and I think I have everything they've released, save for a demo tape that I'm sure is floating around somewhere. Split 7"s seem to be there thing, all of which are pictured above(in very shitty quality I might add, but do you know how hard it is to take a good birds-eye-view picture with a laptop? It's pretty fucking hard! I'll be getting a real camera soon). On  every split, except for the split with The Afternoon Gentlemen, they pretty much dominate the other band to the point that I wish they had both sides.  I hope a discography CD comes out soon so I can jam these on my ipod! Definitely hunt any of these splits down, and support OSK in anyway you can, cause they fucking rule. And if anyone knows how I can get a shirt, please let me know! 

Select Discography:

  1. nice find. the second half dragged for me and the bassist's vocals kinda grate, but i love that drummer. i'd definitely wanna hear more of this.

  2. the OSK demo does not exist. just so ya know.
