Caged Grave are a powerviolence band from Melbourne, Australia. The record above is their demo and the reason I’m posting it (aside from it being great) is that it’s the first thing I heard before meeting/becoming friends with them, and so my opinion of it isn’t clouded by “friend ears”. This demo stood out to me for a number of reasons, the main one being that the fast riffs seem to have more coherency than a lot of the fastcore/PV I had been listening to at the time, and they are met with precise but frantic feeling drums. The effect of this is that it doesn’t feel like this record has any filler, there’s no sloppy guitar hidden behind layers of noise and fast drumming, the songs are short, to the point and heavy as fuck. Musically my favourite track from the demo is DARK, lyrically I like MORE TO LIFE because it’s to the fucking point:

I can’t stomach this
I need to escape
More to life than this
Always Moving on

Move on
You’re Fucked.

Since the demo CG have done a bunch of releases and they all kill. Do yourself a favour and have a look at their bandcamp below, in the meantime I’ll leave you with these:
