This is a review of a split album between the United Kingdom's Krupskaya and Ukraine's Forcible Instinct which will be released on October 17th by 7 Degrees Records and we will start off the review with Krupskaya a band that has been featured before in this zine and plays an avant garde form of noise/grind.
Their side of the split starts out with spoken word parts and a melodic guitar lead and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on their side of the recording and after awhile the music starts getting heavier and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and high pitched noisecore screams can be heard and the music also brings in elements of grind, crust and math rock and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and clean guitars are added onto the last track, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Templars, Religion, and violent themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Krupskaya and if you are a fan of noise/grind, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In Silent Water There Is No Light" and "Order Of the New Templars".
Next up is Forcible Instinct a band that plays more of a brutal and old school form of grindcore.
Their side of the split starts out with a very raw and heavy crust/grind sound and growling vocals and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's and after awhile high pitched screams make their presence known on the recording and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
All of the songs also stick to a very heavy and brutal musical direction and there is also a brief use of melody while also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and one song also brings in a small amount of melodic guitar leads, the production sounds very old school and heavy while the lyrics cover violent and angry themes.
In my opinion Forcible Instinct are a very great sounding old school style crust/grindcore band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out t heir side of the Split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In Line" and "Vote".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of grindcore. 8 out of 10.
