If you stop paying attention for just a second the split between FilthxCollins and Skinlover is over. This split is an incredibly fast and chaotic split that gets your brain doing somersaults from the very first second. In typical spine bending grind fashion, FilthxCollins and Skinlover provide you with fourteen total tracks that are chaotic maelstroms of searing skull rattling metal. FilthxCollins kicks the split off with Bacterial Empires which begins is vertebrae damaging fashion. The intensity that FilthxCollins starts this split off with is the same kind of intensity that remains throughout the entirety of this effort.
The first ten tracks belong to FilthxCollins and each one is just as insane and punishing as the others. Once FilthxCollins begins their buzzing skull mashing assault they keep on smashing their boot down on your throat until you stop breathing. Each track that FilthxCollins provides you here is a mayhem propelled grinding blitzkrieg that rolls from track to track bloodying and battering you until you are motionless. Each offering from these grind heathens is incredibly short with the longest track clocking in at just over one minute. For a very short period of time, FilthxCollins packs a massive punch leaving an indent in your skull. From the guttural vocals to the finger snapping riffs and the incredibly tumultuous drumming you are in for quite the detrimental, brain bruising and entertaining ride.
The final four tracks of this split belong to Skinlover, who combines more hardcore and powerviolence elements to their style. Skinlover’s four tracks make you feel beaten down and as though you are being repeatedly kicked and stomped on. Each of the four tracks are punchy, violent and unapologetic. Right from the get go Skinlover starts swinging and with each track they connect over and over again snapping your head back. Each track is filled with grind filled madness as well as slower more trudging passages that beat you straight in to the ground. Skinlover provides you with shredding anvil heavy riffs that are sewn together with manic screams and barbaric blasting drums to gift you with a powerful and menacing overall sound. Through their four tracks, Skinlover provides you with a heavy ear drum shredding listen that is hard to forget.
This split between these two anarchic bands is a solid one. This effort is a high velocity sonic assault that leaves your neck bent for quite some time to come.
