SMG is an underground grindcore/ noise-grind band from Shah Alam, Malaysia. They have been around since 1995 and sharing stages with bands like Shocked (Malaysia first mincecore band), Parkinson, Cluster Bomb Unit and many others. First known as Opprobrium Adornment (2 demos, 1 split tape, 15 live shows) and changed their name to Self Made God in 2001 due to major line-up change. SMG is still active until now with more records/ tapes/ etc. soon to be released. Musically they mix many type of underground sound (from dirty raw punk to short-sharp blurry noise-grind) as they don't limit their musical influence to few specific styles, depending on releases but old-school grindcore always be the band's backbone. SMG is a socio-political grindcore band but sometimes, lyrically they went to a more direct, nihilistic and also "brainless" type of laid-back, un-serious fun lyrics.

LL TAPES (Lokomotiv Leipzig Tapes) is a now defunct underground tape label once run by SMG drummer. The name was taken from a German footbal club, suitable strange name for the label and as appreciation to the early but obscure German noise-grind scene. Inspired by the 90's noise-grind tape label, LL TAPES had released 16 tapes (incld. few CD-Rs) by total undergound noise-grind to lo-fi sludge/ doom metal bands like 57 Pestilence, Anal Massaker, Pulsating Saliva, etc.

RSD (Razor Sharp Daggers) is an active tape label run by SMG vocalist producing tapes by SMG and less-known hardcore punk to noise-grind bands in total D.I.Y. spirit. All releases only available on professionally pressed tape, no dubbed tape.

BLURRRCORE FOUNDATION is a crazy label run by ex-SMG guitarist focusing on releasing a more "experimental" SMG stuff in limited quantities, just for fun and for true supporters/ maniacs. One good example is the hard to find SMG / Pulsating Saliva - split 3"CD-R (SMG playing strange, lo-fi doom metal with sloppy punk-ish vocals highly inspired by Ohio's own Sloth) and ultra-limited SMG one-sided 7"EP.
