This is a review of a split ep between Belgium's Agathocles and France's Cause For Divorce which was released in 2016 by Wooaaargh and we will start off the review with Agathocles a band that has had plenty of split reviewed in this zine and they continue their mincecore style on this recording.
Their side of the split starts out with spoken word samples from 'The Never Ending Story' before going into more of grind punk direction along with some growling vocals and there are also a great amount of d beats present in their songs and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the vocals also bring in screams and laughs at times and all of the songs remain true to a very raw yet heavy musical sound, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Agathocles and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy their side of t he split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Only Judge" and "Emptiness".
next up is Cause of Divorce a band that plays a mixture of grindcore, crust, and punk.
Their side of the split starts out with spoken word samples before going into a heavier musical direction that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats, death metal growls and high pitched growls and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the music also also mixes in a lot of hardcore punk influences and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music also remains heavy, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover angry and real life themes.
In my opinion Cause Of Death are a very great sounding mixture of grindcore, crust and hardcore punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Addicted" and "Black Star". 8 out of 10.
