Gristnam are a band from Louisiana that plays a mixture of hardcore and grind and this is a review of their 2015 album "Even Less" which was released by Housecore Records.
A very fast and brutal grindcore sound starts off the album along with some blast beats and a good mixture of both growls and screams before slowing down and adding in melody and elements of hardcore into their musical style and the band also brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and there are no solos and leads to be heard anywhere on the recording with the music focusing more on a very heavy and dark musical style while some of the tracks do incorporate a small amount of melody and there is never a soft or weak moment to be heard on any of the tracks this album has to offer.
Gristnam plays a very dark and heavy style of hardcore which they mix in with the speed and brutality to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Gristnam are a very great sounding mixture of hardcore and grind and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Column" "Guilt Runs Red" "Riding Home" and "Oak Tunnel". 8 out of 10.
