United States | Hardcore Punk/Sludge(early), Death (later)
Two of Texas' heaviest bands join forces on this split CD laying waste to modern metal via the hardcore punk fueled fury of early swedish Death Metal and Grindcore.
MAMMOTH GRINDER features three total songs, two of them new, from Mammoth Grinder. "Pulverizer" wastes no time in establishing 'the riff's' dominance on this record. more mid-tempo sections that, strangely, remind me of Coffinworm's faster moments. Hatred Surge had recruited Rahi Geramifar from INSECT WARFARE. What an addition! HATRED SURGE seems to have moved from blistering hardcore powerviolence to more of the metal end of things in the genre. This definitely is not a bad thing and the new absolutely crushing sound created has just rocketed them right to the top of my favorite bands to watch out for list. The quality of the recording is far superior this time around. Both Mammoth Grinder and Hatred Surge slow things down a little, groove a lot and play well together. The quality of the recording is far superior this time around. Riffs, riffs, riffs.
