Powerviolence (sometimes written as power violence), is a raw, dissonant sub-genre of hardcore punk. The style is closely related to thrashcore and grindcore. The term was first mentioned in the song “Hispanic Small Man Power (H.S.M.P.)” by genre pioneer Man Is the Bastard. Its nascent form was pioneered in the late 1980s in the music of hardcore punk band Infest, who mixed youth crew hardcore elements with noisier, sludgier qualities of Lärm and Siege.
