Pornogrind, also known as porno grind, porno-grind or pornogore, is a musical subgenre of grindcore and death metal, which lyrically deals with sexual and pornographic themes, hence the name.
The genre, along with deathgrind, is related to the goregrind subgenre, and has been described by Zero Tolerance as "the most downright perverted of the lot, often adding a dollop of filthy groove and vocals straight from the toilet." 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. Purcell notes that bands like Gut include "simpler, slower, and more rock-like songs". The artwork for pornogrind bands' albums is noted for its extreme and potentially offensive nature, which "would keep them out of most stores."
