Quebequois quartet Rot In Pieces play grind with a grotesque death metal twist, in love with all things creepy and deformed, that ought to be familiar to everyone who dabbled in disgusting, quasi-experimental, disharmonic (Orchestra[l]) metal. This was their first (split) release, the second and last one being a split with Agathocles that came out one year later. It's a blast, with swinish pronunciation, topped off with a classic cover of Napalm Death's "The Kill" and a Dahmer one, suggesting (along with the general sound of the bad and that split with Agathocles) a love for mincecore.

Yet we have Hypoptalasias bringing the grindessential blasts, caught up between a horde of zombies kept animate purely on Discordance Axis shots and the Brutality of Truth and God knows what other sorts of socially perceived defects. Most wonderful is how they finish their studio-recorded side (tracks before the live recordings I mean): "Reflekt", a chuggathon to chug-along to, and perhaps even a nod to the frustratingly honest "A Leaden Stride to Nowhere" (sure sounds like it). I won't play the role of a barely comprehensible biographer here seeing as I already did it here, but I ought to comment that the sound on this one triumphs over that Hypoptalasias / Denak split, a very understandable thing once you take into account that this one was released on CD.

An unfortunate download for the worldwide copyright war! (Mediafire)

I repeat, you can get most Hypoptalasias tracks from their website. What's that... Why am I posting this shit then? Because I'm posting the whole releases, that's why, other bands included. Hypoptalasias don't spend any time talking 'bout bullshit. I mean, they really like zombies and shit, so they point it out sometimes, but that's that. Really.
