Rot/Twisted Truth
Split 7" -- colored vinyl (Fudgeworthy Records)

By: Jeb Branin

Neither of these two bands is content to merely pick up their instruments and crank out vicious and sick grindcore. No way. They opt instead to redefine the term "noise pollution". With the release of this record civic politicians across the world are scrambling to add amendments to their city ordinances on noise. All I can say is, "Ain't it beautiful?" I'm moved to tears. No matter how much grindcore evolves and mutates and expands there will be room for bands like these two who play it raw, warped and primitive. TWISTED TRUTH are the more direct of the two bands, kicking it out and ripping it up from the word go. No breaks, no breathers, no restraint, and for damn sure nothing delicate. A pure wall of noise. ROT are a tad (a small tad) more refined and their music is better developed with more of a groove and more distinction, but no less devastating. They don't call it mincecore for nothing. This record isn't going to introduce you to anything new in grind, but who cares? Not I.
