Archagathus - Canadian Horse (Grind/Mincecore - 2011) [23:10] youtube.com

Submitted by SpiderGrinder in Grindcore

So, wtf is mincecore?? Most people will say that it's a sub-subgenre which imitates the style of Agathocles and they would be right, for Agathocles is the blueprint of the style. Jan himself from Agathocles has described mincecore as a "socially and politically aware old school minimalistic grind. [...] The reason why we took this name is because we were fed up to be associated with sexist, macho, snuff loving “grind”. [...] We stand for DIY, solidarity for all, a better system for all,…". Fair Enough.

Can't say that I like Agathocles that much, but boiii/guurl do I love them imitators, be it HAGGUS or of course, Archagathus! The album itself is as lovely as the album cover, which is probably one of my favorites across any genre - but the music itself is kind of campy, fun and in a way...meaty, whatever that means. Sadly, the horse on the cover just died recently (in late 2016 if I remember correctly), so RIP TANGO!

If you like the band, then please support them via Bloody Scythe, Bringer of Gore, Fuck Your Life and/or Grindfather Productions!

Lyrics

1. Mincecore Fabio

It's been a tough year, I don't know who I am

Questioning my place in a world so dim

What do I do? Where do I fit In?

I feel a new personality growing from within

Mincecore fabio takes control of my mind

Soon I start eating all the protein I can find

I don't know what's happening, I'm losing control

I work out all the time so larger I will grow

My hair is long, it flows with the wind

And I prefer to wear all my shirts unbuttoned

My skills have improved in the ways of romancing

And suddenly horses just seem so enchanting

I listen to Rot and AGx everyday

My friends and family are concerned, they say...

But Mincecore Fabio is here to fucking stay!!

2. Perennial Loser

Perennial loser is always drinking beer

Cuz he's a real loser all days of the year

can't get shit done, and everything sucks

As always with the ladies he's got no luck

But when it comes to drinking he's really a champ

Or making split 7's, or skating a ramp

Try not to get down on yourself when you re sad

Everybody has something at which they are rad!

Perennial loser - focus on your strengths!

Focus your mind - Positive Mincecore Attitude

3. Brain: Dead?

When scientists poke a dead brain

"The brain is dead, it feels no pain."

Do ghosts feel pain? Do ghosts feel pain?!

When a dead sheep has to endure

The poking of its brain for cure

Is this insane? Is this insane?!

4. System: What?

Trapped in a system I don't understand

Wherever it s going, designs are grand

Lays and bylaws, highways and streets

Society's system is so indiscreet!

Society - What?

Society - Never!

5. Soap A Dope

Not only is soap tested on animals

It contains many noxious chemicals

Like lavender and things that smell

Soapy punks can go to hell!

Soap your armpits - go to hell!

6. Society's Dinner

Like sometimes I forget my arms,

The system has its many charms

Its stomach is so big and warm

That we forget we are its worms!

There is no outside, we are safe

Just grinding in this gooey cave!

Paying taxes and keeping appointments

Are for those who seek no enjoyments!

Society, we are clandestine

Grinders poking your intestines!

Even though we re finely minced

You can't digest our instruments!

The system wants us for its food

Most people will go down easy

Some among them are pre-chewed

And others merely greasy!

7. Das Monkey

Das Monkey is strong and intelligent too

He can do anything a person could do

Like go into space or get a tattoo

Or eat cotton candy or wear tiny shoes

Das Monkey can communicate with gestures and signs

(which unfortunately doesn't work with those who are blind)

But let's face it you know that it's true

Das Monkey should be treated like me or you

He's basically your child but with a furry face

Yet society insists on putting him in a cage

And zapping his body and spraying him with mace

Or whatever they do in a vivisection lab

No matter what it is, I'm sure it's pretty bad

So fuck filling your garden with little plastic gnomes

Let's all invite these monkeys into our homes

We can end this oppression of our primate friends

So mincecore and science can finally make amends!

8. A Stupid Question

Why do you ask what it means

That we must support the scene

By playing shows in greasy shorts

And writing songs that are also short

And never tuning our guitars

Except when we play in the bars

And take our time between each song

To laugh and talk and get along

Likes friends do at the mincecore show

What do you ask us: don't you know?!

9. Insanity Dog

There s a dog I know who goes to shows

He doesn't give a fuck if his hearing gets blown

He doesn't play in the park or eat dog food

He just hangs around some shitty crust punk dude

I always wonder why he's riding those trains

Instead of living in a home and playing fun games

Most dogs I know don't listen to Consume

Or have a stick-and-poke tattoo that says DOOM

he's all on his own when his owner gets drunk

So he wonders into the basement and listens to punk

People crash into him and he cries out in pain

Crust punk dog is clearly just fucking insane!!

10. Intoxicating Aroma

There's a punk I know who goes to shows

Covered in filth from his dreads to his toes

There's a quality that follows him wherever he goes

How one could smell so fucking bad nobody knows

Society's against his bodily smell

But he thinks society can go to hell

Even at shows he makes people upset

Just by standing around and emitting his scent

His life isn't easy, things are getting worse

He just has to live with his foul-stench curse

But like a fine wine that improves with age

His sinister odor escapes from its cage

It's now gotten so powerful, so sour and strong

Its effects are incredible, toxic and long

Inebriating those who can smell his smell

With a fantastic high that feels so swell

Suddenly he's popular, with girls and men

Even got offered a job that pays almost ten

The life of the party, and everyone's friend

Society's grudge against him has come to an end

He's now got some money, and freshly painted walls

All thanks to the fact he never washed his balls

So the moral of the story is don't ever shower

11. Sexy Grinder

Grindcore and misogyny doesn't make any sense

You porno-grind losers are sitting on the fence

There s nothing cool about degrading our women

Or playing your songs with that sleazy gore-rhythm

There s nothing wrong with grindcore and sex

But it s clear you re sexually frustrated at best

Maybe if you were respectful and kind

A woman would like you and give you her time

But you re doomed to hang out with your porno-grind friends

And write shitty songs and follow dumb trends

You think violence against women is so brutal and sick

Porno-grind is for losers, let s all mince these dicks!

12. Hey Metallica

I speak as your average crazy banger

Who just downloaded the album "St. Anger" ...

I have to say my mind was blown

By your outrageous mincing tones!

Most bands are afraid to find a new sound

And then drive it into the shitty ground,

Or piss themselves in a full-length movie,

Or tour in a plane with no jacuzzi!

But Metallica is totally undaunted:

If you've got a Basquait, then flaunt it!

Hey Metallica, Hey Metallica, Hey!

13. Fuck The System

Society has a system, it s meant to control

Lock you in a cage, and trap you in a hole

We reject these standards, we won't cut our hair

We ignore the system, cause we don't fuckin' care

[Chorus] We won't live a real life, with jobs and wives

Fuck the system!

We just wanna play some grind, drunk and high

Mincing system!

Blazing through conformist fools, fuck the rules

Fuck the system!

Drinking in the afternoon, party dudes

Punk existence!

Society says that we should get a fancy job

Wear fancy clothes, quit looking like a slob

Society also frowns on doing lots of drugs

But we frown on success, relationships and hugs

[Chorus]

14. Canadian Hoser

Canadian hoser on top of a horse

Drinking a bottle of champagne of course

Never sober, always on a horse

Canadian horse is unimpressed of course

Canadian hoser - society's curse

Canadian system - hoser's curse

15. Hernie Dans Un Voyageur Chagrinant

Swarthy men at war with nature,

Wearing slutty furs and leather;

Camping in all kinds of weather;

Looking forward to their future!

Sweaty bearded voyageurs!

But lifting canoes isn't easy,

Especially when your bowels are greasy!

The voyageur's Achilles heel:

The overworked stomachal wall!

Severe discomfort! Voyageurs!

All heroes in some way are weak:

Our voyageur has sprung a leak!

Eschewing that abominable truss,

His abdominal defect turned gangrenous!

Shitty leaking voyageurs!

Fifty percent of voyageur deaths

Are the result of lifting trademark heft!

Respect yourself and take it easy!

Especially if your bowels are greasy!

Happy healthy voyageurs!

16. Endoparasitic Girlfriend

Each day I grow weaker, my life s come to an end

All because of this endoparasitic girlfriend

She lives deep inside my stomach and guts

Giving me ulcers and driving me nuts

She won't leave me alone, she won't let me be

She just thinks up ways to make me feel guilty

Sick fucking fiend - irrational being!

Endoparasitic girlfriend - not what I need!

17. The Night Wolf

If I could transform into a wolf in the night

I would hunt down those that don't know wrong from right

Vivisectors, cops, racists and rapists

Night wolf annihilates these scum fucking sadists

I hear the night howling it s calling my name

To seek out these bastards, to kill and to maim

Then the world would be full of people that are nice

Who don't find it necessary to torture little mice

But violence is not a very wise tool

Perhaps there is something else the night wolf should do

Like find ways to better his local community

Through respect, equality and generosity!

We could all learn a lesson from this nocturnal hound

And enjoy our lives being safe and sound

Free from racism and sexism and war

And free from a system that oppresses the poor
