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.

This release features six total tracks of spine severing, disgusting and down right vile deathgrind that will make you vomit enough to eject your stomach from your body. As twisted and gruesome as each track is, they are just as heavy and hell bent on providing you with a true spine twisting and brain bashing sound, and they deliver. Through and through you become trapped in a maelstrom of bile, severed remains, putrid essence and flesh flaying metal that will have you face down in a pool of your own vomit and blood before you know it.

From beginning to end, Carnifliate mashes the pedal through the floor to offer up a truly blistering and head smashing sound that cannot and will not be denied. Without nuance, without fluff, filler or gimmick, Carnifliate usher forth a pure sonic assault that will sheer your face clean off of your skull. Forever unapologetic and unrepentant in their vile assault, Carnifliate march from track to track ripping you apart and tearing you limb from limb as they move along. There isn’t a track that is harbored within this title that will not sever your skin from flesh and flesh from bone.

Each instrument within this release is used much like a weapon and not so much as an instrument at all. As the riffs slice and cut their way through your flesh, the rapid fire drumming cracks your bones leaving you bruised, bloodied and lifeless. Each track is a furious onslaught of slaughtering and butchering deathgrind that is as unapologetic, raw, bloodied and down right twisted as you would imagine. There isn’t a moment of reprieve as you become under siege from the drop of the first bile covered note until the last.

Through and through, Disgusting Festivities is just that, but also so much more. This release is disgusting, vile and gut churning, but it is also technical, well written, well executed and more making it to be a well rounded effort. The six tracks that are featured here are skin blistering and blood boiling ones that get your neck twisting and your brain bashing against its skeletal cage for the entire run time. Overall, Disgusting Festivities is an enjoyable and entertaining release that just so happens to want to put you six feet in the ground.

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.

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 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.

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.

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
