Full Length Review: Eraser "Mutual Overkill Deterrence" (Night Animal Records) by Devin Joseph Meaney

Band: Eraser
Location: Palermo
Country: Italy
Genre: Old school grindcore
Format: Digital album
Release date: June 15, 2020
Before bed, I decided to listen to some music. After running through a playlist of nostalgia from my childhood, I realized it was time to grind. And with ''Grind'' in my sights, I humbly started my search for something pleasurable to my ears.
I noticed a new LP posted from the ''Gore Grinder'' account on Youtube. This account is an absolute wealth of all things gory and grinding, and as this album was posted 8 hours ago (while I am writing this) I decided ''what the hell?''… I fucking love this shit!
Now, the first thing I will mention is that this is not my standard gore-filled ear-massacre. This is pure 100% legit old school 80's-early 90's sounding grindcore. Think Napalm Death with a hint of the mincing from an act such as Agathocles. Purely old-school. Nothing innovative really, but superbly done (in my humble opinion). 
The name of this LP is ''Mutual Overkill Deterrence'' by ERASER! I mean, shit... this stuff is so old school it still maintains a strong thrash influence in the guitar riffs and the percussion. This paired with aggressive gutturals of both high and low pitches make for an abysmally amazing experience (yeah, I just made that up... you get the point!).
I could go on, but I think you get the impression I am trying to mold. Fans of classic grind (and maybe some old thrash heads) are sure to enjoy this offering. With all the intensity of a blood-drunk psychopath, this one is clearly a winner. 100 points! –Devin Joseph Meaney
