When you see a song titled Deporting Donald Trump you know that the rest of the album is going to be a good listen and that is what Vice Presidentes provide. Grind Capital is their newest offering and even the cover art screams grind and even a bit of sludge and stoner metal. What you get within this record is an amalgamation of all of those different genres and even a few others and with everything combined you get a fuzzed out listen that gets your head nodding right off the bat.
Grind Capital is a raw and unkempt slab of metal that aims at shredding your ear drums and then some. This release has ten total songs with the majority of them hovering around the two or three minute mark, so what you get is an attack of blinding grind and sludge fury. The combination between the sludge and grind elements is an interesting one since you get the power and raw intensity of grind and all at the same you get the buzzing fuzzed out elements of grind. The sound that gushes from your speakers is a low speaker bursting sound that does its best to rattle your brain out of your skull.
This is the first release from these sludge filled grind heathens in quite some time and it certainly is a strong come back record. Grind Capital is memorable and gets your head banging early and often all throughout the record. Vice Presidentes provides you with buzzing head nodding and highly intoxicating riffs with solid drumming, heavy bass work and throat shredding vocals. With the great musicianship combined with shredding vocals and a combination between grind and sludge, you are provided with music that is unique, memorable and heavy.
In songs such as Runner to the Hills and Back From the Black Hole, Vice Presidentes shows off more of their sludge filled side and lets you headbang and rock out without entirely breaking your neck. The combination of the two most prominent genres gives you a sound that is fuzzed out smoothness and at other times you get a sound that is ear tearing grind. Vice Presidentes keep you guessing as to what you will be hearing from song to song and which genre will have prominence over the other and more importantly they keep you interested and listening all throughout.
Grind Capital is a solid and heavy album that keeps you rocking all throughout and will have you coming back for more sordid sludge filled grind over and over again. Throughout your listens you can’t help but to headbang and incite numerous mosh pits as this is the kind of music that you are meant to cause mayhem to. This is a fuzz charged release that gets stuck in your head whether you want it to or not and not only that but it is a solid and highly entertaining listen as well.
