is quite great sounding Grindcore/ Crust / Hardcore... They call
it "Post powerviolence", I'm cursed. But even if the word
"Post" was used, there's no (ho)modernity : Think about
a mix of fresh old styled grind (With nice blasts, shorts grinding
drums), a couple of crust parts à la DISRUPT, some fast HC à la
GANG GREEN (Perhaps), some "slower" HC à la SICK OF IT
ALL (Perhaps... Sorry I'm not a core expert: Here, only grind is
real) and touches of sludge.
Every songs are short (18 in 11:30
minutes, but it isn't noisecore) so you can avoid boredom if a riff
lacks of semen particles (For (s)example).
But I have to say
it: This is a bit too hardcore for me... Yes, it's too core, but
there's a good energy of youth (I'm an old cougar who went through
transsexual surgery, and I looove the energy of youth SO MUCH!),
and the good style of the drummer makes it more alive.
parts are great, you can feel the intensity rises.

Slooow... Slowly coming: The music is not original, not really personal,
neither transsexual, nor interplanetarial... But it's a quite great
reekording and the cement sentimentals will probably say "Yes".

ZOLDIER NOIZ (Fra)/ BESTIAL NIHILISM (Fra) “What life... What work?”
Split tape. 2017. MALIGNANT OVERTHROW Recs.
SOLDIERS OF SATANIC NOISE DEFLAGRATION? BOOM BOOM BEER EXPLODE.
I heard a demo of this French band a long time ago, the music was located
between thrash metal and war metal (Or something). It seems their style has
changed, I don't know if it's only for this release, the music is now much more
influenced by punk/ hardcore in the old dbeat crust style.
The 3 songs can sound like early MASTER, EXTREME NOISE TERROR, a bit of NUCLEAR
ASSAULT or regular thrash metal. There are some violence and some kicking
moments, some stuffs can sound quite catchy in the dbeat motivated style. This
should be quite energetically crushing the brain when you're under the
influence of tons of liquid and your head is vibrating the stress of the whole
The other side also contains a French band. Their style is located between
quite brutal black metal and crust punk. A part of the songs could sound like a
mix of early MARDUK (Brutal moments, not the melodies) or early/ old IMPALED
NAZARENE, with some dbeat/ crust parts here and there.
Other songs sound a bit different in the black metal style, but I’m not
informed/ remembering enough to quite some band names.
The music doesn't seem to be bad in the style, and some parts seem to be quite
kicking, but the content spoke to me less than the side of ZOLDIER NOIZ (I'm
not a black metal fan anyway, so perhaps my opinion doesn't count for a satanic

ZOMBIES EAT MY
NEIGHBOURS (Ukraine) Nameless/ Alive Tape. 2017. SURROGATE Recs. Zombies eat my
neighbours, while I'm raping their green livid asses! AhAh.
This Ukrainian outfit isn't really a new band, but it's the first time I hear
about them... Perhaps the scenes from the east and west of Europe don't
communicate too well?
Their style is some kind of death grind in an end 90's/ beginning 00's manner,
mixed with a few other genres... It reminds me of NAPALM DEATH, some early
MISERY INDEX or some ROTTEN COLD for the most extreme parts. At the beginning I
thought the name of Napalm Death would have been enough to describe the
hardcore influences, but those Hc riffs and vocals are too numerous for that.
There is also a little "experimental" touch here & there which
appears in some little more strange guitars. (Sometimes I also thought about mid
old Extreme noise terror when the English band got more metal, but this isn’t a
very precise quote at all, so you might not take it in account).
This sounds quite compact, some riffs are quite kicking, and the production is
Now I'm not a big fan of everything they play... It's too hardcore for me by
moments (For the riffs and some vocals), and perhaps there's a light sense of
humor in some structures (It remains soft though).
Even if this release sounds a bit like a "strange" recording by
moments, this tape could please fans of extreme music who would like it to be
solid sounding and located in the middle between death grind and hardcore, in a
not too old fashioned manner.
