The Pitch: “Spawned from the cerebral mind of grind legend Matt Olivo (Repulsion), EXPULSION combines grind, punk, and crust into a caustic musical vomit guaranteed to stack the corpses high.” Also featuring Matt Harvey (Exhumed, Gruesome), Danny Walker (Intronaut, Exhumed, Phobia) and bassist Menno Verbaten (Lightning Swords Of Death). FFO: Locked Up, Gruesome, Crypt Rot
What I Like: This LA supergroup delivers an impeccably tight 14 minutes of extreme music with Nightmare Future. It’s truly an incendiary singularity of each members’ special talents. You get the ugly, Death-worshiping old school vocals, the raw and crusty D-beats of the drums, and some viciously grindy bass and guitar. Each track packs a serious wollop within a highly concentrated space. They feel like pressurized tanks of proprane, and pressing play is a railroad spike driven right into the center. I also really dig the ebb and flow of the overall genre balance from track to track. Some come across as more straightfoward grind while others kick up a little more thrash flavor; still others focus on the death metal side of things.
Critiques: Mainly I just want more.
The Verdict: Again, falling back on the press release: “Expect nothing but the best of throat-shredding vocals, relentless blast beats, buzzsaw riffs, and raw bass tones.” Top notch crust and grind from a very talented crew. Out Friday.
