Beginning their skull grinding journey in 2010, Beaten To Death has been on a rampage ever since their inception. With three full length records under their belt they are on their way to presenting you with their fourth and equally face melting offering Agronomicon. This new twelve track offering is a skull grinding and blood boiling release that is just as chaotic and bone splintering as you would hope it to be and as you would imagine it to be. From beginning to end you are treated to a torrential down pour of chaotic grind that does its best to snap your neck and when it does the sound is deafening.
With their roots firmly planted in the murky swamps of grindcore, Beaten To Death offer up a unique and refreshing sound still. In a stagnant genre, these fiends offer up a sound that is wholly a breath of fresh air. Blending together grindcore, hardcore, punk and whatever else they have fit in to their finely tuned sound, Beaten To Death create something here that works cohesively and organically to provide you with a great overall sound that is hard to deny. Beaten To Death bring a lot of innovative and unique ideas to this crowded genre to stand apart from the crowd that ultimately brings you a highly memorable and addictive listen.
As blasting and head spinning as this release is, it is equally melodic and groove filled providing you with an ever twisting, ever shape shifting and ever varied and diverse listen. Beaten To Death does this all while each of their tracks are under two minutes save for just two. Within a short period of time, these fiends offer up an incredible amount of content and an incredible amount of diversity that you will be picking out through numerous listens.
Agronomicon hits pointedly from all sides with incredibly shredding riffs and unbelievably blasting drums as well as thick bass lines and to top it all off you are screamed at by throat ripping vocals just for good measure. Really wrapping everything up nicely is the organic and solid production throughout that is brought to you by a complete live recording of every single track. Everything comes together nicely within each track which ultimately provides you with one hell of a listen and one hell of a great record.
The twists that Beaten To Death add to their base of grindcore are welcome and surely a breath of fresh air as mentioned. You can’t find grind that is much better than this as Beaten To Death lay it all out here to present you with an overall top notch superb offering in the form of Agronomicon.
Agronomicon will be released December 24, 2018 through Mas-Kina Recordings.
