Execution Mania - S/T

We have another strong debut here. Finland`s womb just regurgitated a new grind band, meet Execution Mania from Helsinki. As I know this band includes musicians from Pelkotila and Unohdettu Tulevaisuus... And this collaboration brought a good Grind result. The case with bands like Execution Mania is - you either like, or hate them. You either "get" the noise or you don't. If you like fast, dirty and heavy music with crazy vocals and messy sound then this EP might be for you. The tape is short but, this didn't stop the guys from putting in a maximum portion of ferocity. Like I said, the whole sound is muddy and some of the instruments merge into one ugly piece. But, I should say that this noise has a lot of live energy and swinging catchy riffs. These guys are mixing old school Grindcore with Mincecore (I feel the influences of Archagathus and Agathocles). I like that they didn't use a pitch shifter and other “modern” equipment. That “real” yelling, roars and raw blastings sounds so savage... I think that the direction Execution Mania have taken from this debut is really promising and I'm sure these guys will show even more badass noise in the near future.

First look at the cover art of new Rawhead`s album!


Putrefuck / Dead Fetus Collection / Pulmonary Fibrosis (Nothing Left But Chunks)

A small US label called Nothing Left But Chunks managed to put together 3 really nasty and heavy bands: Putrefuck (Spain/Mexico), Dead Fetus Collection (Brazil) and Pulmonary Fibrosis (France). In total we have here 29 songs of different Gore melodies which are hidden under this bloody disgusting cover art. So let's go in order and listen to the noise from all the bands… Putrefuck. This duo proved themselves with good old school Goregrind. I feel a lot influence from Dead Infection and LDOH in their music. These songs are rich mid pace tempos and good vomiting vocal. I can't say that the whole sound is extremely "low" but it's good enough. The drums are goofy and a bit cheesy but I like that, it brings some punk stench into this rotten mess. Dead Fetus Collection. These Brazilian maniacs have been pretty active the last few years. They managed to record a lot of good stuff btw. The music of DFC stands out with a messy raw sound that has positive and negative moments. Positive, that everything sounds like one heavy and ugly piece. Negative, the sound of the bass guitar is drowned in the pitch shifted vocals and distorted guitar. Also, the noise of DFC took the biggest part of the whole split and that has a bit of a negative effect. Because all their songs are pretty similar (except for the funny intros) and for me it was hard to listen all 18 songs. Pulmonary Fibrosis. Finally, the French side. The first 4 songs are top notch Gore that can break bones and melt the flesh. The sound has a good balance between raw, messy and clear sound. I can hear the every instrument and together they sound killer! Regurgitated vocals, fast blasting drum sections and dreadful buzzing guitar and bass. This is real bulldozing Gore! The last 2 tracks are just very dirty live recordings, I believe this live stuff is unnecessary here. PS: We want to dedicate this review in memory of Fred (Pulmonary Fibrosis)... Rest in noise brother!

Violation Wound / Ruin (Fudgeworthy Records)


I want to start this review off with a warning. This album is not for those of you who hope to find sweet and lovely pop punk tunes or something to cheer your damn ass up. This split is loaded up with very heavy crushing power. Also I should mention that this split is really unholy, starting with the music and ending with this nice cover art.
The green vinyl looks so badass in this black sleeve. That is what I call a robust cover that perfectly fits the noise. All these dead guys look so dark and spooky, main character is pierced with upside down cross… Terrifying image, the artist really catched the whole idea and spirit, and I respect that.
This massive split starts with attack of Violation Wound. In my opinion this band stands out with their approach that they used in their music. Guys are mixing old school punk with moldy death metal and with a lethal end result. Great guitar riffs, powerful vocal section. Bass has a nice loud tune, and the punky drums fit perfectly to everything above. All 4 songs contains a ton of swing, clockwork energy.
Now the second half comes in with old headhunters from Ruin. “Putrid Is My Brain” is the only track here and it's ridiculously heavy. This is really unholy sound of hell, haha! The whole sound is a bit raw and the tune is dangerously low… Savage sound of the bass is the main here, next is ugly roaring and buzzing guitars. The drums are the last on the line, but that does not mean they sound weak or anything like that. This death metal is really scary, slow and grinding. Also, I've felt a good stench of sludge and doom metal. This “music” has the effect of an asphalt compactor to roll you out, breaking the bones and crushing the flesh.
This is a real death metal split, and I'm freaking happy to have it in my collection!
