"A PRESENTATION OF GRUESOME POETICS"
Hailing from Washington State comes the Grindcore maniacs THE DRIP. I was into these
guys for a little while before this release ever came out and originally discovered them on
bandcamp. I downloaded their EPs and was very pleased to find them on the great
RELAPSE RECORDS label. They play a crusty and raw style of Grindcore music, but
they do add in many Death Metal elements through out. "A PRESENTATION OF
GRUESOME POETICS" is the bands debut on RELAPSE and it is a ferocious and violent
assault on the listener, but I loved it. The music is very high adrenaline, with some spastic
and even some grooved out pissed off parts. The music just repeatedly steam rolls you and
beats you up, but it's a beating you want to take over and over again. The vocals are done
in a mid ranged harsh and screaming type growls. THE DRIP takes some influences from
some of the greats like NAPALM DEATH in their "SCUM" era and BRUTAL TRUTH
along with some ROTTEN SOUND & NASUM. These are the best of the best and THE
DRIP can sit right next to them. Grind for life!!!!
