I just spent the last handful of days traveling across the country. I finally arrived home yesterday after two flights and a five hour drive, and I am now ready to violate my ears with the rancid sloshings of virulent grindcore, goregrind, and death grind!
The first new band I had the pleasure of checking out is the death grind outfit Burnt Decay. “Demo 2019” by this putrid party proves to be a vicious blast of pulverizing musicianship, and although short, it manages to be quite the banger. With a sound that reminds me of death grinders Leng Tch'e, I can only fathom that a live show from these guys would be absolutely heavy and aggressively spectacular.
As stated above, this release is a short one, but with five spastic tracks, it still pleasures me in a way that only grinders can. All the songs on this release flow together in a grotesquely elegant way, reminding me of the greats within the genres and sub-genres of what I consider to be the 'true underground.'
Hailing from America, I hope to hear more from these guys in the future. Down tuned guitars, pummeling drums, and spastic vocals are a staple within this scene, but it is something I enjoy consuming on a daily basis. I had a really good day today, and I can say truthfully that Burnt Decay was the icing on the cake that completed my evening. Fantastic grindings, boys! Devin out! -Devin Joseph Meaney
