GRINDCORE WITH A DOG ON VOCALS. NO, SERIOUSLY.
Just when you thought grindcore vocals had reached their ultimate heights of ridiculousness, along comes Brooklyn’s Caninus to one-up the game by putting a dog — scratch that, TWO pitbull terriers — behind the mic. From their MySpace page bio:
The majority grindcore and fatal metal strips (orchestras) have the singers, trying to sound similarly to the broken (upset) deranged animals anyhow so they have decided to use a real thing. Vocals are executed by two pit bull terriers. Both were rescued days before euthanization from refuges. Caninus – all strict vegans. It has come time really to allow the animals to have their say.
The “band members” section credits Bludgie and Basil with vocals. Word is that the band accepts payment in dog biscuit form only. I wouldn’t want to fuck with that, ’cause those dogs look fierce, yo.
