One gloomy day years ago, four dirty minds from Japan and Australia met together and decided to form a band. This decision would not only change their lives, but it will make a huge damage in grindheads minds.
Through the course of 21 tracks, The Borkenlayne absolutely tear it up. Pain Is The Fearminder is a phenomenal deathgrind, or maybe deathgore record. If you haven’t heard gored deathgrind yet and you like grind, then this is a great introduction. An epic “Oceanic Thrust” opens this gate to hell and then it drags us into the black void of boiling obscurity. First, what will really punish you, it's the sound...it has a raw taste and it's heavy as fuck! The pitch shifted vocal is as deep as Hell is, and it has a nice low tremoring sound. The guitars paint the thunderous portrait of flames and continents breaking apart. The rhythm section provides the fuel to keep the fires burning from start to finish. I want to highlight a blasting drums, they have old school sound, which is perfectly fits in.
By far one of the most bizarre covers I’ve ever seen. This paintings remind me mutilated mix of H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard (that guy who wrote Conan) stories.
Muscle warrior who is fighting with sea monster it looks simply funny and epic.
There is clearly a whole boatload of potential here and I am very curious to see where The Borkenlayne go with this.
Rating: 8.5/10 The Borkenlayne bc
