Gore-infested grindcore is what this split CD brings to the forefront, as these two band’s chaotic sense of cacophony is on full display here. Leading off is Magrudergrind, whose take no prisoners assault on your eardrums is accentuated with a high pitched squeal for vocals and whose blast beated goodness and ripping guitar tones are unrepentantly in your face throughout cuts like “Scholastic Burnout” and “Siphon Then Slit”. Reminiscent of Pig Destroyer, these Maryland lads are not to be taken lightly. Up next is the equally frenetic and slightly less gory but more politically charged Shitstorm, who also employ groovy grind riffs like the one in “Getting Heated”, as well as a high pitched vocal yowl that cuts through the most evil of migraines. If two bands doing 24 tracks in less than 25 minutes sounds like a salacious grindcore excursion to you, then this split disc is just what the doctor ordered.
