Squash Bowles/Tyribal/Selfmadegod Records/2011 CD Re-Issue Review
Squash Bowles are a band from Poland that plays a brutal form of noise/gore/grindcore and this is a review of their album which was originally released in 2000 and re-issued by Selfmadegod in 2011 .
Drums range from midpaced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats being thrown in, while the bass playing sounds very strong and powerful with some grinding riffs that are very raw and primal.
Rhythm guitars range from midpaced to fast riffing that combines gore/grindcore with some very primal noisecore and some crust and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording only the most primal grindcore there is with some weird type noise distortions and sounds being thrown in at times.
Vocals are a mixture of deep grindcore growls and high pitched noisecore screams with only a small amount of spoken word passages being used on a couple of songs, while the lyrics cover gore, guts and death and even though they only have the song number listed at 6 there are a lot more than that with alot of the songs being a minute each, as for the production it sounds very raw, primal heavy and brutal.
In my opinion Squash Bowles are a very good noise/gore/grindcore band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Strange Minds" and "Bad Sector". RECEMMONDED BUY.
