Pornogrind, also known as porngrind or pornogore, is a fusion genre of grindcore and death metal[1][2] that lyrically deals with sexual and pornographic themes, hence the name.[3][4]


The genre is related to, and similar to, goregrind, but minor differences from goregrind include pornogrind having "simpler, slower, and more rock-like songs" as well as the genre's pornographic theme present in lyrics and album artwork, which "would keep them out of most stores."[4]Zero Tolerance described pornogrind as "the most downright perverted of the lot, often adding a dollop of filthy groove and vocals straight from the toilet."[5] Natalie Purcell, however, in her book Death Metal Music: The Passion and Politics of a Subculture, suggests that pornogrind is defined solely on the basis of its lyrical content and unique imagery, its focus on pornographic content.[2]

Notable bands of the genre include Gut and Cock and Ball Torture.[2][5][6][7][8]
