When I had first received this recording I really had no idea of what grindcore is, luckily my computer broke, and I had time for some research. The first thing I noticed was that Sacrocurse did not waste anytime at all. As soon I hit play the blast beats started. Instantly I was taken from my peaceful abode and thrown into cacophonic assault. It made me understand the want for things to step back. Seeing how many of the other extreme metal bands had put the emphasis of their talents on technicality. It is refreshing to see that you don’t need to be the most proficient musician to make extreme metal.
As far as the music is concerned to me it sounded something like a cross between early Carcass, and Napalm Death (if their early releases had not been so horrible). Guitar work I would define as old fashion hardcore accompanied by equally antique bass lines(which is not a bad thing). The riffing style is very basic with a lot of staccato laid on top of those super heavy chuga-chuga riffs I love so much. Soloing is not the strong point for this band, I am not saying that they can’t solo because they can, and when they do a good one they deliver. But for the most part the soloing has a very slayer approach where one of the guys rips without any sense of direction.
With a blend of chaotic noise you have to have something just as sonically pleasing, and the drums are I believe are just what everything else needed. Simple as everything else and just as lovely their drummer blast through odd time changes to bring the songs to perfect ends. I think the thing that I enjoyed the most was the black metal production. Everything is atmospheric and thrust you immediately into a “let’s break some shit” kind of mood. The vocals seem like they were put in as an after thought to pure anger driven instruments. It was refreshing to hear something so simple yet so over the top.
