Three grind bands try their hands at blazing fast and rigorously underground music.


Production: Grinding abrasion cloaked in fuzzy distortion.

Review: Mesrine - rumbling deathgrind which uses a constant bombastic pace to establish a firm sense of theme upon which rhythmic deviations expand a chaos of riffing and textural layering through multiple instruments. The vocals alternately spits a single scream of syllables in a moment or howls incomprehensibly alongwith the surging blast. Reminiscent of a more deathgrind Carbonized.

Traumatism - bouncy hardcore with grind influences fuels the most primitive angst of this band, a rigid diatribe of guttural vocals and quickly moving phrases that fly over a landscape of even intervals at high speed or a surly, organic midpace. Drums are notable for their delight in messy variations of standard patterning and there is a tasteful amount of micromelody in these riffs.

Nyctophobic - here in a haze of distortion unmatched by previous releases, this band can be seen as a fusion between melodic hardgore and extreme deathgrind that delights in pummeling cascades of exploding riff patterns. The opened-throat of self-sacrifice ranted in these vocals matches a righteous strident pace and rigorous, basic division of the scale into even paterns.
