Almost every day i see flyers online of gigs or split releases between doom/sludge and grindcore/hardcore/powerviolence bands. I know this is pretty common nowadays but i wonder how this relation between these differente genres begun, did i miss something? i know you can trace some background of this relationship back in the mid/late 80s when Saint Vitus released their first albums on SST Records (Founded by Greg Ginn of Black Flag) and the birth of The Slugs (pre-Crowbar), Graveyard Rodeo and Eyehategod.

Is there any other event i should know about to fully comprehend this relation? Let me know, this has been quite an intriguing topic for me for the las couple of years.

Well I'm pretty sure sludge's hardcore influence can be traced to Black Flag's My War, and so sludge and hardcore have been intertwined since it's inception.

There's also Grief, formed in the early 90's by Disrupt (crust) guitarist. The griminess of the crust punk/hardcore genre just compliments well with the tempo that doom metal provides.
