Subvert The Dominant Paradigm
July 2011
Released: 2011, Relapse Records
Rating: 4.5/5
Reviewer: UK Team

Okay…admission time…I unashamedly LOVE Grind in all its forms and multitudinous permutations…it reaches deep inside me…speaks to me…it’s utterly primal cum primordial blast beaten fury resonating to my very core. Hence I absolutely LOVE this album!

The band is now powered by ex-Phobia blast demon Bryan Fajardo, and consequently, has found a whole new level of insane intensity, to its already devastating sound.

It’s Grindcore Jim…But Not As We Know It!

Yes it has plenty of hyper speed grind purity, but now also incorporates thunderous stop/start rhythms, and a style they describe as ‘skronk’ (which to me translates as jazzy freakout bursts) which adds a total new feel to what they do. The album is an aural bomb-burst, raging furiously and exploding your synapses with 30 hate filled machine gun ‘scatter burst’ assaults, and all in just a touch over 20 minutes! Talk about not outstaying your welcome!

After my initial listen, I literally sat in my chair, almost punch drunk by the pummelling I had undergone, however after a few minutes recovery, I hit play again, and this time simply immersed myself in the onslaught of malignant cancerous poison spat my way…revelling in the sheer hatred and violence that filled me with ugly joy!

What a f***ing steel toe-capped kick in the bollocks this album is…absolutely astonishing! Pure F***ing Genius! Buy Or Die!
