Ape Unit are a band from Cuneo, Italy that plays a mixture of grindcore, power violence and noise rock and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Turd".
Drum beats and a heavy guitar sound starts off the album along with some melodies being utilized at times and after awhile spoken word samples are added onto the recording which also leads to a faster musical direction that also utilizes blast beats, high pitched grindcore screams and deep death metal growls.
Elements of noise rock mix in quite a bit with crust, grind and power violence quite a bit throughout the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and most of the tracks are very short in length.
Ape Unit takes a musical style that takes the rawness and aggression of crust, hardcore, grind and power violence and mixes it with the melodic structures of noise rock to create a style of t heir own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover humorous themes.
In my opinion Ape Unit are a very great sounding mixture of grindcore, power violence and noise rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Puberal Baphomet" "The Will To Smith" "Sperm Bank Robbery" and "Go-Kart Cobain". 8 out of 10.
