The Afternoon Gentlemen are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of grindcore and power violence and this is a review of their 2016 compilation album "Still Pissed" which was released in July by Give Praise.
A very heavy sound starts off the compilation along with some blast beats a few seconds later and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful while the vocals are high pitched grindcore screams along with some crust style shouting in the background and most of t he tracks are very short in length.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and growls along with hardcore style vocals can be heard in certain sections of the recordings and when guitar leads are utilized briefly they are done in a very melodic fashion and spoken word samples can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and as the compilation progresses elements of power violence can be heard and later songs also bring in a brief use of pig squeals and there is also a brief use of clean playing.
The Afternoon Gentleman plays a musical style that takes the most raw and brutal elements of grindcore and power violence and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent, angry and humorous themes.
In my opinion the Afternoon Gentleman are a very great sounding mixture of power violence and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Grind on the Mind" "Down And Out" "Grind Is Music" and "Nuclear Terror". 8 out of 10.
