Your new favorite band,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Draw Back a Stump (Audio CD)
Best introduction ever. This is what education needs; A level syllabus placed over grind, it would be absolutely perfect, instead of buying revision guide books (which are overpriced and generally superficial excuses to use a lot of colour ink instead of having deep content) you could buy grindcore albums instead. How perfect would that be?
This album hits you in the face and it doesn't stop, but it isn't just violent it is also delightfully intelligent, which I think always helps to make a better and more engaging record. Generally it is very grind like but they leave no style untried as we veer from the meat and potatoes of the grind into blackened thrash via Aura Noir taking in a bit of Black Breath along the way then veering into some of the rockier moments of Mastadon's `The Hunter' before tearing it up again with some `Scum' era Napalm Death. It sound like a big mess on paper but it flows so well, it really is amazingly well crafted.
The unfortunate thing about the album is that at only twenty minutes it's all over a bit too quickly. Still it is so well crafted that there isn't any filler and you will find yourself repeating the album over and over again for a good few hours at a time, becoming more and more obsessed with the hidden nuances of each track.
Hopefully this album isn't just a one off, with luck we will see a few more, at least, until then I get a good feeling about this CD; it's an album that demands constant rotation. One hundred percent recommended, buy ten copies.
