What the...? Whoever thought Machetazo, Spain's premiere gore-themed grindcore band, would have two songs "remixed"? Well, it's happened, and the brutal heaviness of the grindcore has been amplified and taken in a completely different direction by the other contributing artists. Essentially, the music itself becomes secondary, or at least a counterpart to, the noisy elements of it--that is, the feedback and massive distortion necessary to make good grindcore. These two noise artists have remixed the tracks to make it more of a sonic statement and less strictly musical. Mindbending, shrieking heaviness ensues.

1. Swirling masses of noise and reverb start the track, then give way to more straight grinding, but the “remix” element still remains. Weird, feedbacky/ambient part intertwines.
2. Noise intro, then the grinding starts but is kept at bay volume-wise until it comes thundering back in. Waves of distortion are laid over the basic, heavy riffs.
