Released: 2010, AreaDeath Productions
Reviewer: Luxi Lahtinen
Generichrist formed in Florida in 2002 by vocalist Anthony Anderson. After many line-up changes the band got its big wheel rolling, and a couple of demos and EPs were recorded during 2009-2010.
The band´s latest 5-track EP, titled MINDUMPSTER released early this year via the Chinese label AreaDeath Productions, is a pretty nice sounding thrash/death grinder. It punishes listeners by relatively tricky and complex song structures. There´s a huge dose of sheer punishing heaviness and straightforwardness involved in their songs as well, kicking our teeth back into our throats in a pretty effective enough way. The guys know how to mangle and grind its listeners down easily with the destructive musical ingredients they have in their sound – there´s not the slightest question about that.
Then again, in all honesty´s name, even if the guys prove to be good at what they do, their grinding hybrid of both thrash and death metal is still missing something. Let´s face it: It´s unfortunately generic, and obviously cannot stand the test of time during a long run either. However, I gotta believe this disc may still make a bunch of listeners somewhat pleased and happy, so nothing should stop you giving it a fair chance.
