ATOMIC GRIND 3 WAY - Rubufaso Mukufo/Nervous Impulse/Epicrise

http://deadrhetoric.com/

23 songs in 29 minutes from three different international bands. You know that you are going to get your daily helping of grind when you dig into this one before you hit the play button. While it does not ever rise above the genre tropes (and nor should it be required to), ones interest in this is likely bound to knowing one or more of the bands involved, and you are bound to pick up a new band to enjoy as well. First up to bat is that of the Czech band Rubufaso Mukufo, who come across as the most "pure" of the grind bands in this trio. Given 11-tracks to revel in, they utilize a few song clips and never really extend things out beyond one minute in length. It is blistering, chaotic, and does not lean in too far with any death metal influences (outside of vocals). Barked vocals and frantic guitar and drum work embody each song, as does some more hardcore influences at times (Baby Blade). It is all a grinding blur, but it does the job it sets out to do in knocking the listener on their rear. Next up is Canadas Nervous Impulse, who contrast by being the most deathly of the three acts. 5 songs that range between 1-3 minutes each, the death metal brutality gives them a more hefty feel than the opening act, with weighty grooves to lay into that contrast the more blistering segments. The riffs are violent but headbangable (Air Burst), and the balance between groove and grind serve up some solid dynamics that can be catchy yet still annihilate. Last up is the Ukrainian band Epicrise, who return from a period of absence with a collection of unreleased cuts from the bands 2008-2010 period. Sitting somewhere in the middle of death and grind, they still stand out from the other two acts in their overall sound. Some catchy grinding bits despite their short length (around the 1 minute mark) keep things rolling, as crazed riffs and low growls/high shrieks permeate the landscape. All three bands grind away with their own particular style, which is exactly what you hope for with a split like this. Similar enough to engage the audience throughout, but having enough of a unique style that it helps garner some new fans to those unaware.

ATOMIC GRIND 3 WAY - Rubufaso Mukufo/Nervous Impulse/Epicrise

Here we have a wet, juicy grindcore three way split between Rubufaso Mukufo from the Czech Republic, Nervous Impulse from Canada, and Epicrise from Ukraine. So, let is kick this off. We start with Rubufaso Mukufo, who offer up 11 songs in a face-ripping 10 minutes. As you can probably imagine, this is fast, furious, and takes no prisoners. The band incorporate some death metal influence into their gut-scraping delivery, although the songs are far too short and ferocious to truly develop this side of their sound, other than a few melodies and solos, and bits of the riffs here and there. The vocals are nicely varied, but completely caustic whatever style they are in. Brutal grunts are common, but other modes of assault are used throughout the tracks. A strong production complements the bands muscularity, and the murderous grind they peddle is very well-received. I was unfamiliar with Rubufaso Mukufo prior to this split, but it is safe to say I am a convert now. They finish with a Malignant Tumour cover, and their work is done. After 11 tracks of violence, we are only a third of the way through this split, with two more bands to come. Nervous Impulse are next, and their 10 minute slot is filled with five songs. Ever since their exemplary 2015 release Time to Panic, which made it on to the year end best of list for that year, I have been looking forward to hearing this band once more. The songs on this split are savage and ugly, filled with multiple reference points from a whole host of different extreme metal sub-styles, all coalesced around a core of naked hatred and furious aggression, the likes of which many bands struggle to achieve. Despite the relatively brief nature of the songs theres a good amount of variety on offer here, within the obvious style constraints, of course. Outright brutality, snippets of extreme technicality, scathing chaos, atypical groove, fractured melody, and mutant screams are all accounted for at various points in these songs. Filled to the brim with nasty extremity and precise butchery, I am very happy to report that after enjoying Time to Panic so much, this latest batch of songs doesnt disappoint at all. The final band on this split is Epicrise. They give us seven songs in eight minutes, three of which are cover versions, (Dead Infection, Grossmember, and Cerebral Turbulency). Epicrises brand of mayhem is punk-infused and powered by brutal shouting growls. The tracks are short and to the point, full of an infectious energy and sickened delivery. The bands blasting speed and dirty grooves make for some enjoyable tunes. It is a great way to bring this split to a close, and all three bands have made a huge destructive mess of things that they can be proud of.

ATOMIC GRIND 3 WAY - Rubufaso Mukufo/Nervous Impulse/Epicrise

Two Russian underground labels joined forces to release this robust 3-way split. Moreover I have to avow that the selection of the corresponding hordes was carefully applied likewise. The CD starts with eleven tracks of the Czech grind-fame RUBUFASO MUKUFO. Those tracks were released in May as a part of their comeback EP called "Violent Show" and it was respectfully presented in a digital format at their bandcamp profile. The slightly modified line-up of RUBUFASO MUKUFO strikes back with Bilos (MALIGNANT TUMOUR) on vocals. Their 10-minute set blasts away pretty fast. The intense, ultra insane and quite short grindcore pieces come in a perfect association with the elements of d-beat & crust. Flawless stuff for sure! My favorites are: "I Want to Puke", "The Great Insanity" and the over brutalized yet accelerated cover of MALIGNANT TUMOURs "Fuck off Nazi Bastards". Oh, these Canadian grind-guys seem to be super productive, unstoppable and filled with fury for the next decade. How can they pair with so ease the brutality and speed in such a devastating way? Well, the five cuts of this split are definitely a sick combination or invention of five precisely coordinated minds and a good lesson on how to play Death/Grind the most sophisticated way. Inhuman musical lunacy is this in circa 11 minutes. I would call them extreme underground sophists of the 21st century! Whilst "Air Burst" is a track that was known for me already from their "10th Anniversary Promo" and believe me it kicked serious asses there. So it is not necessary to convince you at all about the powerfulness and unrestrained brutality of the other four compositions. They are just simply destroying and head smashing! Really looking forward to their second split coming earlier than you would ever expect! The third and (un)expected band of the split is EPICRISE. Well, after 4 years of break, the leading grindcore product of Ukraine seems to reactivate their rows. The following 7 songs are a clever collection of unreleased stuff, but still not the new material we all craving for. So you can enjoy four songs off from the "Dead Sea" demo (2008) plus 3 cover versions on such grind monsters as DEAD INFECTION, GROSSMEMBER and CEREBRAL TURBULENCY. The old stuff obviously rules, but let is see what the future brings for these Ukrainian grinders!!! Until then you are more than encouraged to put your hands on this killer 3-way split!!!
