AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED/DESPISE YOU
AND ON AND ON
Two of grindcore’s heaviest hitters join forces for a face-ripping 25-track split disc entitled AND ON AND ONE. First up is the California-based outfit Despise You, returning after a lengthy hiatus with a fast and furious 18-track expedition dragging the listeners through shards of broken glass and debris with their succinctly composed and male-female vocalized hyper-speed hardcore ambush (“Destinial”). Blasting through 18 tracks with swift savagery (“Bereft”), Despise You returns in fine form, stacking up string amongst their contemporary nihilistic speed freaks. Up next is Agoraphobic Nosebleed, who contribute eight tracks of their patented raging drum machine led powerviolence with Scott Hull once again behind the curtain making the mayhem-inducing magic happen (“Possession”), bookending their reliably apocalyptic expedience with a spell of malicious and murky sludge (“Half Dead”, “Burlap Sack”).
