EP review: 30XX "PRISS" (Independent) by Devin Joseph Meaney

Band: 30XX
Country of origin: Japan
Genre: Cyberpunk, electronic goregrind
Label: Independent
Release date: June 12, 2017
It is just after ten at night and I am finally getting around to doing a review for PRISS by 30XX. This is some severely obscure tuneage, but I can honestly say it is highly enjoyable to listen to. I can for sure hear a very strong gore/noise influence, but I can also hear what seems to be some form of electro or minimalist E.D.M. From the first to second track the music switches from splattery goodness to something that you might hear at a rave. The only way I can explain the first portion of this release is if C.S.S.O, Gore Beyond Necropsy and Last Days Of Humanity had a baby. The fetus birthed by this ménage à trois would represent how the first track ''NO FUTURE'' sounds to me. The second track ''2033'' is harder to explain, as I don't listen to this particular style of music often. Still, it was quite interesting and entertaining none the less. I have always enjoyed a good anime so the cover art for this is visually pleasing to me. This is apparently the very last 30XX release (this is the first time I have heard of them) and a discography release is apparently on the way soon. I will for sure have to check this out, as this style has me very intrigued. In closing, I will say that this release may not be for everyone, but for fans of music that is ''out there'', I suggest you give this a listen. The EP is short, so if you don't like it the horror will be over soon. -Devin Joseph Meaney
