REPULSION, SADISTIC INTENT and NAUSEA are among the acts who will pay tribute to one of the early pioneers and leading forefathers of the grindcore genre, Jesse Ernesto Pintado (TERRORIZER, NAPALM DEATH, LOCK UP, RESISTANT CULTURE), on September 14 at The Vex in Los Angeles, California. Pete Sandoval of Terrorizer and Morbid Angel will be special guest as well!
Pintado reportedly coined the terms "grindcore" back in 1983 to describe a fledgling musical revolution that incorporated the extreme aggression of political anarchic chaotic sounds of U.K. punk rock and the ferocious sledgehammer guitar chord grinding of extreme metal and death metal.
Emma Pintado, loving sibling of Jesse Pintado, was moved and motivated to gather all under one roof who shared in the remorse and sadness of the tragic death of Jesse Pintado in 2006. Emma, along with close family and friends, took their grief and channeled their energy into a positive force to create this celebratory event that will incorporate the spirit and memoralize the grindcore/metal icon.
This Metal/Grindcore festival, entitled "Grindcore: A Tribute To The Grindfather Jesse Pintado", will feature the following acts:
SPECIAL GUEST: PETE SANDOVAL
