STENCH PRICE (International) – Self-titled (Avant-garde Grindcore)

STENCH PRICE are a grind ‘supergroup’ like no other. Not only do they feature star contributions from members of NECROPHAGIST, CYNIC, BRUTAL TRUTH, PAGANIZER, HAIL OF BULLETS and others, the music too is of a different audacious kind. Mastermind Peter Shallmin has bombarded the already caustic music with bossa/lounge music in way that it all seems thoroughly fascinating. It’s never been done before, at least not in such a brilliant manner where it adds a dimension to the music without taking away anything from it. The genre has been stagnating and it’s time to bring in avant-garde influences that change the way we perceive it. Every song has unique contributions and a different edge to make sure that they not only stand out, but leave an indelible mark on the scene. There’s none like Stench Price and this is only the beginning.
