Ian Lovdahl These guys out of Finland released perhaps the best grindcore album of the year. It's got the best elements of death metal and crust-punk, along with an infectious penchant for groove-laden composition. Side note: I definitely need one of those awesome buttons for my jacket.
EDIT: It's 2016, and I still play this album on a weekly basis. Incredible grindcore. So glad this band exists.
Favorite track: Napalm Jizzler.
