Hailing from Sweden comes grind fiends SWÆRMM with the first EP in a trilogy of EPs. This EP titled ¥ features five total tracks of buzzing, face melting grind madness. Each track is two to three minutes of nothing but grind savagery that is sure to leave your head spinning and your teeth firmly hammered down your throat. Unapologetic and relentless, SWÆRMM comes at you in short, concise waves of brutality. There is not a moment of reprieve through any of the five cuts that are present here as you become under siege by nothing but ear drum bursting metal from the drop of the first note.
SWÆRMM not only utilizes their grind foundation as a weapon as they incorporate some influences from hardcore and death metal to create an amalgamation of furious and destructive metal. ¥ is as whiplash inducing as you would assume a grind release to be. From beginning to end you mash your brain against your skull as each track from this release gets right under your skin making you bang your head until you finally fall unconscious.
These grind heathens deploy wicked sharp riffs that are only to be paired with ever tumultuous drumming and vocals that range from manically screamed to utterly inhuman. ¥ is chaos that is wonderfully controlled and put in to concise gut churning offerings. Once one mayhem filled track ends the next begins never giving you a moment to breathe as you become trapped within the cyclone of madness that SWÆRMM summons here.
Overall, ¥ is a very solid grinding effort that gets your head banging and your neck snapping from the very get go. Each of the five tracks here are just as solid and as good as the last making this entire release to be cohesive and well rounded. Not one track is alike as SWÆRMM incorporates different styles of metal in to their foundation of grind providing you with twists and turns through each offering, and that is refreshing for a grind release. This is an entertaining and face melting release and it will be interesting to see what these Swedish grind fiends have to offer with their coming EPs.
