Album Review :
Necroscopia Burial - O Inferno e um Lugar de Tormento e Ranger de Dentes
If you guessed by the band name that you were about to hear some grindcore, you’d be right. However, what you might not expect from this Brazilian band is the type of grindcore they play (yes, there are multiple subgenres, but let’s not get into that)! While the trademark elements are there—incredibly fast riffs, blastbeats, extremely short songs—the longest song is just one minute, 12 seconds and it’s the only song over a minute. In fact, the whole album of 16 songs clocks in at just over 6 minutes!—yet there are loads of diversions from the fast + loud formula. There are clean guitar riffs over blastbeats, and even some traditional rock and roll elements. And, as is becoming more popular within grindcore, there are lots of experimental noise elements as well. This is genuinely some of the most refreshing grind I’ve heard in a long time. Highly recommended for fans of experimental noise, noisecore, and grindcore in general.
