This is a review of a split ep between Germany's Atmock and U.S.A's Paucities which was released in 2011 by 7 Degrees Records and we will start off the review with Atomck a band that plays a mixture of crust, noise and grindcore.
Their side of the split starts out with video game sounds before adding in a melodic riff along with some screams and growls that also takes the music into more of a brutal grindcore direction as well as adding in blast beats and bringing in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of their songs are all very short in length with none ever hitting the 2 minute mark while you can hear some melody in their music at times and the songs are all very well produced and have some very violent and hateful lyrics.
Next up is Paucities a band that plays a brutal mixture of crust and grindcore.
Their side of the split starts off with dogs barking and spoken word samples before going into a heavier musical direction that is closer to 80's extreme metal and brings in elements of thrash into the bands grindcore sound and a few seconds later death metal growls start to kick in and the music starts going into more of a brutal crust/grind direction along with some blast beats, th e production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of crust and grindcore. 8 out of 10.
