Watch Grindmother slam down vocals for ‘Age of Destruction’

Grindmother has released a video of her laying down vocals for her single “Age of Destruction.” It’s cool to see the behind-the-scenes of how any song is made, but this one is a little different. Grindmother’s guttural, ripped vocals are put down line by line, with vocal breaks in between.

Grindmother, 67, lent some screams to her son Rain Forest’s band, Corrupt Leaders, a couple years ago and liked it so much that she’s struck out on her own. The album “Age of Destruction” is set for release April 28.

Check it out — she starts singing so loud they have to move the mic back a bit.

Watch the official video for the song below:

See Grindmother’s new video for ‘Age Of Destruction’

Grindmother, the 67-year-old Canadian grindcore singer/songwriter who’s already built up a small legion of fans, has released the video for her song “Age Of Destruction.” It’s the title song off her upcoming debut, out April 28.

She’s been in the press now and again, in part simply because of her age, but it’s no fluke — she really can belt out the songs. There’s nothing fake here, and there’s not too many people who can grind their voice into the ground the way she does. Power to anyone who wants to scream with this intensity and put it on the airwaves.

The video is fairly minimalistic — it’s Grindmother and her band against a backdrop of what looks like a city being bombed and on fire.
Grindmother hopes to tour the states soon as well, but no dates have been revealed yet.

“Age Of Destruction” (lyrics by Grindmother):

Age of destruction
Trepidation abound
Life insignificant
Power to kill
Intention to destroy all hope
All that remains
Grasping to keep
All we have known
Is worthless now
Weapons to destroy all hope
Planet is weary
Stricken and sore
The game to win
Is world control

And watch the video for “Any Cost”:

Check out Grindmother’s work with the band Corrupt Leaders (of which her son is a member) on their Bandcamp page.
