Sick/Tired are a band from Chicago, Illinois that plays a lo-fi form of grindcore with rabid hardcore and punk influences and this is a review of their 2014 album "Dissolution" which was released by A389 Recordings.
A very distorted and brutal noise/grndcore sound starts off the album along with some harsh power electronics on the title track before going for more of a raw and heavy direction on the following tracks as well as bringing in a good mixture of blast beats, growls and screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
At time s you can hear some hardcore and crust style shouts in certain sections of the recording and after awhile the band starts bringing in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a small amount of melody and most of the tracks are very short in length while they also bring in a 5 minute track later on during the recording and a couple of the later songs bring s in an avant garde sound that utilizes a small amount of acoustic guitars
Sick/Tired plays a very brutal and lo-fi form of grindcore that also add s in melodies, harsh noise elements and punk/hardcore influences to create an album that is very heavy and brutal from beginning to end, the productions sound s very professional while the lyrics cover dark, hateful and violent themes.
In my opinion Sick/Tired are a very great sounding lo-fi grindcore band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Descent" "Absolute Hell" "In Articulo Mortis" and "The Mire's Toll". 8 out of 10.
