Fuck the Facts – Stigmata High-Five (Relapse)
Techie grindcore from Canada. Lots of different sounding tracks. Different speeds and heaviness often very metal. Vocals are somewhat in the background, indecipherable, brutal female vocals. The tracks change speeds a ton, and the band is tight and heavy. The songs are also surprisingly long for grindcore.
**1. A 7 minute grindcore track to begin the CD. They go through a million time changes, there are slight death metal leanings, and it’s heavy. Two minutes into the tack there is also a slow heavy section, a quiet section with spoken vocals, in French, and then into a discordant noisy section. Wow. Complete with IRON MAIDEN breakdown with keyboards!
**2. Jutting, start-stop, before running around like someone being chased. This is almost funny, while being heavy and serious. Crazy scale runs on the guitar, melodic guitar solo, and the kitchen sink.
3. Shorter, heavier, and more straightforward. Some of the pinch harmonics on guitar get annoying.
4. Guitar madness with a million different riffs. There is even a slow, melodic doomy section in the middle of the track.
**5. Blistering fast right away. A catchy almost power metal section in the middle that goes into gang vocals with a marching beat??
**6. Short and brutal. Intense vocals.
**7. The longest track, with many different sounds, you only have to listen to the first minute, which has three different ideas in it to get the idea. Progressive grindcore? Those guitars are very catchy and metal. Don’t be afraid of the ambient noise section, the track does return, to a slow heavy sound.
Awesome! -mph
