RetardNation are a band from Canada that plays a mixture of punk, death, grind, and hardcore and this is a review of their self released 2013 ep "Tortured to Death".
Spoken word samples start off the ep before going into a very slow and heavy sound which leads up to a hast crust/grind sound that also utilizes blast beats, deep death metal growls and high pitched screams as well as a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
All of the tracks are very short in length with the longest one being only a little over a minute and a half and the band avoids any use of melodies, solos, and leads and focuses more on a very fast, heavy and brutal sound and they also bring back to the spoken word sample s on a later track..
RetardNation takes the heaviest, rawest and brutal elements of death metal, grind, hardcore and punk to create some music that is very heavy from beginning to end, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover violent themes.
In my opinion RetardNation are a very great sounding mixture of death metal, grind, hardcore and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Red Alert" and "Tortured To Death". 8 out of 10.
