Police State are a band from Pennsylvania that plays a mixture of crust and grindcore and this is a review of their 2015 album "mind Collapse" which was released by Grimoire Records.
Distorted reverb's start off the album and after the intro drums start to kick in and takes the music into a very fast grindcore direction t hat also uses melodies and a great amount of blast beats as well as some growls and crust style growls and the songs also bring in a g reat mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Most of the tracks are very short in length while there is a couple that go over the 3 and minute mark and the music is mostly rooted in the mid 90's crust/grindcore musical direction and the growls add a touch of death metal to the bands musical style and all of the songs stick to a very heavy musical direction and also avoid using any guitar solos or leads.
Police State plays a style of grindcore that is mixed with crust and also brings back the brutal style of the genre from the mid 90's, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent, angry and hateful themes.
In my opinion Police State are a very great sounding mixture of crust and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Consumed" "Pure Filth" "Cease To Exist" and "Shallow Grave". 8 out of 10.
