All is Suffering
The Past: Vindictive Sadisms of Petty Bureaucrats (Crucial Blast Records)

By: Jeb Branin

I knew from the first time I heard an early ALL IS SUFFERING demo tape that this band was going to turn a few heads (inside out, that is). They take some of the most creative hooks and arrangements you are ever going to hear in grindcore and fuse them onto a framework of sound that is influenced by crust, power violence, death metal, and the kitchen sink. This CD combines newer tracks with tracks from a 7" and the aforementioned demo tape. Other than the fact the newer songs tend to be a bit longer and the older songs rawer and more Carcass influenced, the four year span covered by the CD doesn't hinder its cohesiveness at all. Need I say the actual words "you must own this" for that fact to be clear?
