Backstabbers Inc. - Bare As Bones (Blackmarket) This is some pretty pissed off mix of grind, ultra-fast hardcore, power-violence & a little bit of metal. When they do metal-core sounding stuff they leave out most of the shitty parts that too many other bands waste their time with. For this one think: Benümb, Deadboidieseverywhere, Wolfbrigade, Skitsystem, Left For Dead, Converge (sans their silly Slayer fixation) and a serious love of crazy song titles. There’s so much whacked out energy on this it they are on the verge of losing their breath by the 15th song. |
(((1))) A total whirlwind of grind meets ultra-hardcore
((((2))))) Super-PISSED off fully charging. (FCCs “Fucking” 3-4 times)
(((3))) More metal-core sounding but still pretty solid
(((4))) Big ‘ol riff into immediately charging & paniced sounding metal-core.
((((5)))) A total Wolfbridage/From Ashes Rise like straight-ahead bruiser. FCCs: “fucking” 5 times
(((6))) Spiraling then full on brutal metal attack sort of like say, a Misery Index tune cut down to 1/8 the length.
((((7)))) Really FAST & really RIPPIN’ hardcore/ultra-core. Somewhere around Strong Inentition crossed with early Sick Of It All?
(((8))) Benümb like grind attack then more of a East Coast heavy hardcore/grind fusion.
((((9)))) Power-violence styled with some East Coast metal-core breakdowns.
((((10)))) Strangely enough sounds like a serious Agents of Satan mixed with Left For Dead and Benümb. Killer bass playing, too.
(((11)))) A whole lotta wallop in a short span (0:35)
(((12))) 0:12 of death/grind!
(((((13)))))) Super-angry & arrrgggggh! Awesome title, to boot. Poison Idea, Repulsion and Left For Dead fighting it out in a barbed-wire wrapped steel cage.
(((14))) This ain’t really crust or totally grind but it IS really fucking intense hardcore that is louder & a tad more metal-ish sounding than most.
((((15)))) Youth Of Today cover played at 10x the speed and with a vocalist who sounds like the unholy trio of Hank Rollins/Pete Benümb and John Brannon (Negative Approach). I don’t really know the original
but I do wonder what Ray of Today thinks. (FCC: “fucking” 0:47 & 1:24)
((16)) Just kind of “eh” sounding slow metallish stuff.
(((17))) Grind mixed with sludge all of which pretty damn killer & raw. Relentless & insane! Benümb/Solient Green and Grief mixed togehter & playing a basement. A few points off for running too long, though.
(((18))) More of the same, This is actually listed as #19 but SHOULD be #18.
((((19)))) Traditional h.c. riffing/vibe then into noisy & HEAVYsounds. Killer all-vocals breakdown (0:53-1:05)
(((20))) Raw as hell Token Entry cover. Sounds pretty rad but not quite like a “standard” cover especially with that oddball early Slayer like-soloing creeping in . (Listed as #20)
((((21)))) Ultra-brutal grinding h.c.
((((22)))) Demo version of #6 but this one sounds much more like raw, pissed off h.c. with not so much of the metal element.
((23)) Raw version of #9 of Feedback then kind of so-so death-grind attack with Hellhammer-like guitars.
(((24))) Demo of #16. I like these raw versions better, just sounds like there’s more heart in some of the weaker tunes like this.
NOTE: There is no track #25. --- Ragnar of Ravensfjord
