A Wormrot demo of variable yet integral quality with an all-around fat greasy big chainsaw sound. Right off the bat they glow as this harsh, tight, ace grind band doing an Insect Warfare cover for the closer. I generally find the likeness to IW more apparent here than on Abuse, especially in particularities like the vocal stylings (for example, listen to Condemnation). Pretty sure that there's that bass(ist) that they used to have on this one seeing as guitars do not usually sound like rowdy space mammoths communicating unless Justin Broadrick did a cameo.

Not as dynamically destructive as their debut. Still good.

Trivia and debunking, courtesy of gentle(wo)manly anonymous(es):

"nope, no bass. they never had one. as far as i know, the only bassist in the initial band line up didnt even last for 1 session. arif and rasyid split from them right at the get go."

"yea. rasyid's guitar was a 3 stringer with the 1st-3rd strings taken out on an epiphone (evident in their indonesian tour pictures), using a thicker gauge, 0.54 E string. his reason for the 3-stringed guitar: "i sucked at guitar.""
