Thrilling, enjoyable, addicting, heavy, melodic, blasting and many more words can be used to describe Medium and their self titled release, but one word sums it all up pretty well; and that word is excellent. Through and through you are treated to some seriously tight knit grind/crust excellence that is written, constructed and performed to near perfection.

With each of the ten tracks within Summoning The Hounds being a twisted amalgamation of death and destruction, Verano’s Dogs provide you with nothing but vein bursting scalding metal for your twisted enjoyment. Each track is a true blitzkrieg of deathgrind that snaps your neck before you realize what happened. Without so much as a warning, Verano’s Dogs sets in with their wicked brand of metal having you come face to face with an ever potent and violent assault. Verano’s Dogs execute nothing but pure perfected deathgrind here, providing you with ten total tracks of earth scorching twisted metal.

From the very first note that gets shot straight out of your speakers you quickly realize that each offering aims to trample, lay waste and destroy anyone and everything in its path. In true grinding fashion, each track is pretty short, but for what they lack in length they more than make up for in content. Each offering is a blistering assault of metal that gets your head violently banging back and forth until your neck finally gives and your head is found rolling on the floor. With one brutal assault after the next you are left with no room to breathe or take a breath as when one track ends the next immediately picks up right after it. Forever trapped in their cyclone of deathgrind terror, you come under siege from all sides from the very first note until the very last.

With slicing riffs paired with rapid fire drum work and dual vocals of the inhuman category, Verano’s Dogs creates something here that is vicious and volatile as well as entertaining. Every single second of Summoning The Hounds is an entertaining one as each track is a superb offering of pure, unfiltered deathgrind. Not a single track of the ten that are present here weak in any fashion nor do they lack in any single area as each one is just as good, heavy and head bangingly good as the last. The only thing that you wish for once the final note has rang through is that there were more than ten offerings throughout the release. With that said, that leads you to numerous listens until your ear drums just simply call it quits.

Through and through, Summoning The Hounds is a great release, one that provides you everything that you would want from a deathgrind record. Verano’s Dogs hit the nail on the head with this release as they offer up ten excellent tracks one right after the next with each one getting you bang your head until your brain fatally bruises. There’s nothing left that needs to be said other than Summoning The Hounds is absolutely excellent.

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.

Grevia: Misophonic

Blending death metal and grind together to create an unholy, brain splattering and entirely ferocious sound is Grevia with their debut EP titled Misophonic. This six track EP is an explosive and volatile offering that will rip your head from your shoulders without so much as a pause. Unforgiving, unyielding and unrelenting, Grevia usher forth a savage and destructive display of potent death grind that will melt your flesh from your bones. As short as this release is with most tracks topping just over the two minute mark, it more than makes up for in violence and pure savagery. Misophonic packs more than a punch as you feel as though you have been hit repeatedly with a lead pipe once all is said and done.

Each of the six tracks present here are pure outbursts of terrorizing noise and destruction, never for them to relent as they each leave nothing but devastation in their wake. There is no compromise here and there is no slowing Grevia down as they push the pedal through the floor from the very beginning until the final note crosses your speakers. Through and through you come face to face with six twisted, blood boiling and skin peeling death riddled grinding offerings that are entirely ceaseless. Rampaging from track to track, Grevia disregards human life completely to provide you with a neck twisting and life threatening sound.

In utter life dismantling fashion, Grevia ushers forth flesh slicing riffs that cut deep only pair them with machine gun fire drum work that barrels straight through your chest. Among the wall of grinding noise come bloodied and furious vocals that seem to be cropping up from the under belly of hell itself. As a whole, Misophonic is a grisly gnashing of death riddled grind that aims to pulverize you until you are nothing more than unidentifiable pulp. Each cut is a savage earth scorching effort that traps you within its fire laden vortex never for you to come out the other side unscathed. Misophonic is a terrorizing juggernaut of death and explosive destruction that you cannot simply turn away from.

In great sonic brain mashing violence, incendiary flesh melting savagery and neck twisting death, Grevia offers up something here with Misophonic that is truly devastating. Each track is a well constructed blitzkrieg of explosive violence that removes your head nearly immediately only to continue dismantling you until you are no more. The only grip that I have regarding this release is that it is criminally short. You will sit here and press play over and over again to bear witness to true and pure destruction. Overall, Misophonic is a great release and with this being the debut EP from these absolute monsters, it will be great to see what other life dismantling sounds they come up with in the future. For now however, we are graced with this monster of an EP and god damn it’s great.

Misophonic will be unleashed September 20 through Lethal Scissor.

Ever ripping, buzzing and maiming, Sophist offer up a terrorizing wall of noise one track after the next that devastates and scorches earth.

Completing the true terrorizing sound are hellish vocals that are as gritty and bloodied as you could imagine, cropping up from a true sonic wall of terror and malice. This ripping offering sets you up for what you are about to witness for the remainder of the five tracks that follow. Each track that is to come after follows closely in the footsteps of the opening track as each one of the them is just as explosive and flesh peeling.

You are given no reprieve, and there is no light at the end of this as you are left mangled and bloodied once all is said and done. Each track is a blitzkrieg of damaging and terrorizing noise that pierces through you nearly immediately after it crops up. From beginning to end you come under siege, suffocating underneath the wall of grinding face melting noise never for you to crawl out from underneath it. Betrothal To The Stone is truly a maelstrom of scalding metal that picks you up only to spit you out the other end definitely looking worse for wear.

Betrothal To The Stone is an unholy, sinister, and malevolent creation, one that has you ripped to shreds before all has concluded. This cacophony of evil is just that, as this entire EP is riddled with six malevolent hymns that are as chaotic and piercing as you would imagine. In skull sanding and neck twisting speed, the occult and an overall wicked drive to produce an overall devilish sound, Sophist has created an overall great release here with Betrothal To The Stone.

Ovaryrot: Non-Flesh Scarring

Starting their careers off as a strictly goregrind outfit, Ovaryrot’s sound began to morph and include numerous genres in to the fold to create a sound that is all around nightmare inducing and brain splattering. With the additions of death metal, black metal, doom, power violence, noise and synth, Ovaryrot’s sound is ambitious and chaotic. Each track makes your head spin as you aren’t sure what you are supposed to be expecting from them next. As discordant and as non cohesive as you would expect their music to be, Ovaryrot make it all work to provide you with something that is well rounded and constructed.

Through Non-Flesh Scarring, Ovaryrot make their ravenous and ear bleeding style very known. From the drop of the first note you understand that you are about to come under attack from all angles. None of the seventeen tracks within this release cease their terrorizing assault as each one presses forth with bloodthirsty reckless abandon. Never are you really given a break from the sonic terror as Ovaryrot blasts from one track to the next, suffocating you under droves of chaotic metallic noise. Ovaryrot rips you to shreds from beginning to end, tearing at your psyche for the entirety of Non-Flesh Scarring.

With the addition of synths Ovaryrot adds just another element to their cacophony of twisted metal. Synths are a big focus throughout Non-Flesh Scarring as they are a feature on each track, and with them present that is what really creates an overall nightmarish atmosphere that is hard to shake. The synth elements are psychedelic, but in a way that makes you feel as though you are losing your mind. It adds a layer of an already diverse and varied sound that is hard to ignore and hard to forget.

As chaotic as each track is, there is no denying that they are flesh ripping offerings all the same. Each of the seventeen tracks that are present here are all terrorizing forces that come at you with ever skin shredding riffs, tumultuous drumming, vocals that are all together monstrous and synths that sink your mind in to a terrifying psychedelic coma. Non-Flesh Scarring is a blitzkrieg of noise and terror that twists your mind and bleeds your veins dry.

Non-Flesh Scarring is an all around destructive yet highly entertaining record. Each track is executed well and with as much as Ovaryrot packs in to each track, that is definitely saying something. This is a dense, diverse and well done record that’ll have your brain leaking from your ears before you know it. Ovaryrot has created a great record here, and if you are looking for something truly different, it would be a crime to look over Non-Flesh Scarring.

With viscera soaked riffs and ever cranium caving drumming along with rabid and ever bloodied vocals, Vomit Spell gnash at your flesh from beginning to end. There are no gimmicks and certainly no fluff as what you get is seven straight tracks of brutalizing metal.

Without so much as a warning, Vomit Spell set in immediately greeting you with nothing but a chaotic wall of blistering noise.

They are unapologetic in approach and sound as Vomit Spell ushers forth one destructive brain melting cut after another. The neck twisting and flesh tearing never stops as these heathens stampede from track to sordid track, offering up sickening hymns of mutilation through and through.

With track times ranging from just over the one minute mark to the near five minute mark, you are treated to plenty of diversity and variety through each track. While each offering is as brain blistering as you would imagine them to be, you are also treated to more low and slow burning old-school death in the vein of Autopsy, Obituary and the like if only for brief moments. The lengthier tracks change the pace every so often, throwing you for a loop only to plunge you back in to your grave with more face melting and vein draining chaos. Not every single minute is filled with gut churning ferocity as Vomit Spell does slow it down to a manageable graveyard romp every now and then.

Each track is a well written offering showcasing both the grind and pure death metal elements from both genres. Both of these genres work hand in gnarled hand throughout this demo to provide you with a truly grisly, gnarled, death and disease ridden listen. There is not a track within this demo that will disappoint as each one is just as solid as the last. Vomit Spell keep it raw and visceral all throughout providing you with a completely viscera soaked and highly entertaining listen.
