Depression / Mesrine
Split CD (2 Plus 2 Equals 5)

By: Jeb Branin

DEPRESSION and MESRINE are a great combination for a split release. Both bands play unforgiving grind/mince/gore metal that is beyond extreme. Both play the type of sewer growling ultra-death that was perfected by bands like ROT or even OPPRESSOR. It's hard to find fault with anything on here other than its total lack or originality, but being unique or distinguishable isn't what this type of music is about. It's about putting your head in a vise and squeezing. Anything beyond that is superfluous. Diehard fans of the genre will eat this up, casual fans will feel like they've heard it a million times before. It is worth noting that while this is a split release both bands feature nearly a full album's worth of material (about 20 minutes and 11 cuts each).
