Hailing from Estonia is Sociasylum who recently released their debut full length titled Crossroads. This offering is filled with eleven tracks that fuse hardcore and grind together to create a wholly chaotic and in your face sound that gets your head nodding in no time. There are no fillers, no fluff and no bullshit as Sociasylum hits you hard and early on without so much as a warning. Crossroads begins with its opener Cramped, an all out aural grinding assault that hits you square between the eyes leaving you twisting your neck and bashing your brain against your skull.
From Cramped onward, you are treated to ten more tracks of nothing but hardcore and grind violence that leaves you feeling weathered and beaten. Each of the eleven tracks that are present within this release are no holds barred assaulting affairs that are don’t back down and don’t quit on their pure metallic rampage. Through and through, you are gifted with eleven tracks of heavy handed heavy metal that aims to cave your skull in and ask questions later.
In typical grind fashion, each of the eleven tracks that make an appearance are short and never cross the three minute mark making these tracks punchy and venomous. Through Crossroads, Sociasylum rolls right from one track to the next, never giving you a moment to rest as they continue their never ending metallic grinding onslaught. As mentioned, these tracks are short but they pack a massive punch and that punch can be felt long after you have finished listening.
This fast and punishing record is a well put together offering for a debut full length. Each track is well performed and crafted making the entire release cohesive and well rounded. There isn’t a weak track on Crossroads as each of the eleven are just as heavy, spine rattling and down right entertaining as the others. This is a nice grinding assault with a little bit of a hardcore twist and it works really well. The only thing that would have helped a little bit more is if more tracks were tacked on, but that is just a preference. Other than that, Crossroads is a very solid and very well executed debut offering.

Brutal Blues set in immediately as they barrel forth with their first track.
