Glasgow smile

(redirected from Chelsea grin)

Glasgow smile

A “smile” created by slashing a victim's face from one or both corners of the mouth to the ears using a utility knife, broken glass, or other sharp object, which may be combined with stabbing or kicking, such that the victim’s screaming further opens the wound, possibly causing fatal exsanguination.

Named after the boroughs (Glasgow, Scotland; Chelsea in London) where these forms of punishment wounding were first popularised by street gangs.

6 Chelsea Grin, Desolation of Eden (Artery) I occasionally come across reviews that talk about this Salt Lake City deathcore band's flaws, but I don't pay them any mind--this album is assaultive and jam-packed with breakdowns, and I'm not too concerned with minutiae.
