324 (Japan) - Soulwinter 7" EP (1999)
3. Broken Clock
Total playing time 07:07
Grindcrust perfection. I know I said that already. I know I'll say it again, no doubt.
While I wouldn't call 324 tight, inventive, or even that fast by some standards, they blast with awe-inspiring conviction. Their style is perfect as a modern-day example of the origins of grind, in all their crusty glory. Something important that all love-thrash practitioners could learn from 324 is the second most important rule of grind (just behind "play fast"); that is, to be absolutely relentless, at all times.
Shall we call it 'Rule 324'?
Soulwinter may still be in-print, I'm not 100% sure. You all needed 324 bad though, in any case. However, I WILL post as many links as I want.
