German grindcore band with an impressive back catalogue dating back to 1996, famously contributed to the repulsion tribute cd in 2009.
This latest album features a guest appearence from Seb from Bitterness Exhumed.

Well I am 9 tracks in so far and its just a relentless wall of noise, some of the fastest drumming I have heard for ages, the most tortured screams replacing vocals and just endless distortion.

Yet in here are some clever almost sludgelike breakdowns, very slight but somehow manages to get some structure into the mayhem, in the song 'Conspiracy Of Shit' there is some actual "nice" guitar playing as well.

This does what you would expect from 'Grindcore' but its not the usual case of each song sounding exactly the same.

Rating 8/10
For Fans of: Repulsion, aAnd?, The Locust, SOB
