Multinational Corporations/Jamat-al-Maut/Transcending Obscurity India/2015 CD Review

  Multinational  Corporations  are  a  band  from  Pakistan  that  plays  a  very  brutal  form  of  grindcore  with  some  elements  of  crust  and  this is  a  review  of  their  2015  album  "Jamat-al-Maut"  which  will  be  released  on  March  30th  by  Transcending  Obscurity  India.

  A  very  fast  and  raw  grindcore  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  death  metal  growls  and  high  pitched  screams  and  you  can  also  hear  a  lot  of  crustcore  influences  in  the  bands  musical  style  along  with  a  decent  amount  of  blast  beats  and  most  of  the  tracks  are  very  short  in  length  with  the  longest  being  3  minutes.

  Throughout  the  recording  there  is  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  some  of  the  tracks  also  use  a  small  amount  of  melody  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  as  the  album  progresses  spoken  word  parts  can  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  a  couple  of  the  tracks  also  bring  in  a  brief  use  of  guitar  leads.

  Multinational  Corporations  plays  a  style  of  grindcore  that  is  very  brutal  and  old  school  sounding  and  also  adds  in  a  touch  of  crust,  the  production  sound s very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  violent  and  political  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Multinational  Corporations  are a  very  great  sounding  grindcore  band  and  if  you  are a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Fuck  Your  Patriotism"  "Advertisement  Overdose"  "Salaab"  and  "Ehsas-e-Jurm".  8  out  of  10.

  1. Thanks a lot for the review man! I'm the vocalist of Multinational Corporations. The album is actually from 2014, but yes this version of it by Transcending Obscurity is 2015. Thanks for the good comments about us!
