Anyway, THIS Professor is not teaching at Stanford but it is schooling you with it’s raw as fuck grindcore blasts circa 1993 Germany. Oddly enough they mix in some thrash bits as well as those now obilgatory black-metal laden ‘ascending/descending’ scales. If you dig old Napalm Death, early Carcass, Repulsion, Agathocles, et. al.- then you’ll love this. As “demo-quality” as it sounds, the vibe here is really killer - like one of those “gems from the past” that only a select few have heard before yet not so “kult” that only collector nerds get to enjoy this.
((((1)))) Thud-thud riff then a total “nuclear holocaust in your head” feeling via some über-raw Carcass/old Napalm Death worship. Lots of nice “meaty” thrash-like riffing & some wacked-out Slayer-riffic soloing, admist all the chaos
(((2))) More like mid-paced thrash via ultra-lo-fi early 90’s death-grind and occasionally bordering on some of that early “noise-core” (like when A.C. was still going without song titles). Even though it’s total ‘basement level sound’ there’s still some nice, audiable riffage & bass blasts.
(((3))) Starts off like noise-core (or they missed their cue on purpose). Something like a lo-fi version of early Cannibal Corpse mixed with Repulsion, old Carcass & Napalm Death?
((((4))))) Gotta love that hissing cymbal sound! Ripper rythmical thrash pacing that soon gets into some ‘beyond the 6000 ft. below grave’ death metal, with a silly “South of Heaven” nod, too. The bass & drum work at 1:15-2:00 has to be heard to believed! Some of the riffing towards the end sounds, like Megadeth, too. Radness!
