Bolesno Grinje / Mercenary Cockroach - Split CD
Two grindcore acts from Croatia releasing a split CD on Endless Brutality Of Men Records, that I gotta check out. One of them, Bolesno Grinje, has already been reviewed by me when I received their last full length; Od Nesvijesti Do Grinda. The other one; Mercenary Cockroach is a relatively new band. Let’s see what kind of noise hails from this small country.
 
Well, that this is grindcore is quite easy to notice. The Napalm Death influences are literally dripping from this entire split CD, so that means both bands. The only real difference between the bands is that Mercenary Cockroach sounds a bit faster and more aggressive than Bolesno Grinje, and that Bolesno Grinje grooves a bit more than Mercenary Cockroach. Both bands have written nine songs for this record. It is nice to hear two different bands on this disc, because when you’re halfway through the disc and you slowly begin to lose attention, a new and refreshing sound kicks you in the face. Lovely grindcore indeed.
 
This is bound to please any visitor of the Obscene Extreme festival. I can’t see why die hard grindcore fans wouldn’t like these two acts, and therefore I urge them to go and check this disc out if you can find it.
