What the hell is this website?!
« on: January 05, 2019, 02:02:41 PM »
Okay so while browsing Google Images I stumbled upon...an image. A horrid, disgusting, disturbing one. Which led to a certain...site.

This link is just the most disturbing thing I've seen the Internet for quite some time.

Click at your own risk!

https://royhswapsgore.bandcamp.com/

It's more disturbing than any horror movie trailer I've yet seen.

So...can anyone explain what exactly that is?!

Thanks. I just don't want to feel like I'm the only one who's seen it.

Most disturbing thing youíve seen lately on the internet?   donít know how you could make this statement. These are photographs of actual medical  conditions; why they are posted on this website is unclear to me and seems bizarre but they were probably originally intended as teaching materials for medical students 

I actually find your reposting this to be bizarre and your reason ĎI just donít want it to be the only one who has  seen ití makes no sense at all

Well, I didn't click on the link, so I guess you're on your own.

Yuck.   Yeah, you don't want to click on that.

Are these real photographs? They seem like exaggerations of real ones. Either way I find myself curious as to where these are from, if they are true, as they are not of the level of gore I usually expose myself to in the Internet.

Regarding that last statement. I don't want to feel like I am the only one unfortunate enough to tread upon it, that's all.

Anyhow...after a little research I've discovered it's actually an album of "Goregrind" tracks. It's quite a bizarre subgenre of metal, with the British band "Carcass" being perhaps the most popular. A mixture of ugly music and references to medical terms are apparently the key characteristics of this...whatever you call it.

I'm slightly surprised no one has actually referenced it in the four sites I have posted on. Apparently Goregrind is just that bizarre. Even I can't easily comprehend why they would use those stuff in their style.

Yes, I see.  It's a music sales site, and that's one genre.  I thought it was just a gore site.

I looked under bandcamp.com
Then down to here.
https://bandcamp.com/?g=metal&s=top&p=0&gn=0&f=all&t=grindcore

Googling the name in front of that, and keeping the search just text, it looks consistent for the results.  It looks like there's a pattern to it -- 2+ words, must be something gross related to the human body. 

I didn't look much beyond that.  With the initial search I clicked on a youtube video that played without requiring a log in.  Looks like human parts with a parasite as a picture while music (loud, random-sounding) played. 


Must be their thing.  Kind of a gut punch, visceral reaction to the image along with loud, random-sounding music that's death metal or something I guess.  There must be some creativity in picking the words/image/medical issue, but... I'm not going to bother listening to it (or looking).  It's probably a way they're edging, emo, etc. and can separate themselves.   ::)

And you can buy their music on the site.   :P

What do you mean by "gore site"?

Looks like an underground metal community. It would be interesting to find out their motivations for designing their "music" that way. I find the listening experience to be quite boring though.

Would you rather hear this "goregrind" stuff or like Black Metal? Or, for that matter, would you choose goregrind or something by John Cage or Babbit or whatever othet weird avant-garde composer?

Nice :)

The photos on the website remind me of a book we had when I was a child. It was full of photos of all sorts of rare medical conditions. I thought they were fascinating, who does not want to see what happens (or can happen) in the human or animal body or follow surgery? It's just like dissecting or repairing a car or a piano...only more organic with live tissue. If I ever had the patience to go through medical school I would have loved to specialize in pathology...
