Beyond Terror Beyond Grace, sounds like the world we live in today to me! Extinction | Salvation seem like the two options mankind has left. You guessed it, we’re dealing with some political/philosophical traditional grindcore! From the Blue Mountains in Australia nonetheless.
The sound of Beyond Terror Beyond Grace immediately reminds one of the traditional grindcore bands like Napalm Death, which means crust/punk grindcore with an attitude. The band doesn’t shun to put in some hints of death metal here and there either, although the overall sound is very much grindcore.
The thing I love about this record is that the total recording time for these nineteen tracks is five hours. It’s a complete take with no editing or digital manipulation. They state that they intended to capture the intense and raw qualities of a live atmosphere. Well guys, you succeeded. Quite splendidly. Cause if this record has one strong asset it must be the sheer ferocity and intensity which is smacked in your face song after song.
Fans of intense grindcore that leans more towards the traditional side of the style will certainly please themselves by checking out Beyond Terror Beyond Grace. Think of bands like Napalm Death, Nasum and Rotten Sound and you get the picture.
