Mindflair are a band from Germany that plays a very fast and aggressive form of grindcore along with some elements of crust, power violence and hardcore and this is a review of their 2015 album "Scourge Of Mankind" which was released as a joint effort between EveryDayHate and Wooaaargh.
A very hard and heavy grindcore sound starts off the album along with some high pitched screams and brutal blast beats and the music brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and at times you can also hear angry crust style shouts in come sections of the tracks and all of the songs are very short in length with the longest one being 2 1/2 minutes.
Most of the songs are heavily rooted in a 90's style of crust and grindcore while the production gives the music more of a modern day feeling and in the slower sections the power violence and hardcore elements have more of a powerful sounding presence and the music also brings in death metal growls and as the album progresses melodies can be heard in certain sections of the recording and all of the songs stick to a heavy and brutal musical direction.
Mindflair plays a style of grindcore that is very aggressive and old school sounding and also adds in a heavy crust influence, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover politics and rebellion themes.
In my opinion Mindflair are a very great sounding grindcore band with elements of crust and power violence and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Frost" "Uncontrolled" "Exploitation" and "Theatre of the Absurd". 8 out of 10.
