Album Review
The Grunt
Reviewed 2014-03-14

Coll: Monomaniac - Volume 1

Super short and fast collection of grind / death / noise groups from around the globe. Solid compilation. FCC clean on account of unintelligible lyrics.

Check out Body Hammer (A7)!!! That's the guy that sent this 7" to us and it's probably the best / most original track of the release. He played Day of Noise 2014 in the band Night Worship.

A1 Death grind to start, slows down to mid-tempo
A3 + + These three tracks are right on top of each other. Noisy, dynamic, diverse, COOL, play them all.
A4 ^^^
A5 + Very organic old-school grind
A6 Noise that is grind with grind that is noise. Lots of cymbals
A7 + + + Starts hyper fast then slows to an ambient drone doom and goes light speed again. SUPER COOL!
A8 Straight up death metal with a few cool flairs

B1 Fast, but nothing special
B2 + Fast, organic, has a really nice ascending build to it. Instrumental. Makes you feel like you're being pulled apart.
B3 + Death doom with deep muffled vocals.
B4 + Half-distorted jangling tremolo-picked guitars and creepy ambient.
