Mange
Disillusioned (Half Life Records)

By: Jeb Branin

Damn. The little I had heard from this band in no way hinted to how intense this shiny platter was going to be. Ruthless sludge-violence played with all the discordant ugliness this trio of hardcore heavyweights could muster. Their harsh dirge counterpoised by pummeling bursts of grinding speed kept me slightly off balance through the first listen because I wasn't quite sure what to expect next; which is a good thing in my book. Nothing is more boring than a predictable album. Subsequent listens allowed me to enjoy the crushing density of the noise that could almost be called complex. Sick dual vocals add to the strength of the delivery and give it a cool grindcore edge. If NATO really wanted to do some damage they would forgo their bombing of foreign nations and instead opt to drop crates of MANGE discs on their enemies.
