This is a review of a split album between Germany's Yacoepsae and Irate Architect which was released by Haunted Hotel Records and we will start off the review with Yacoepsae a band that plays a mixture of grind, crust and power violence.
Their side of the split starts out with a very fast and brutal grindcore sound that also uses a great amount of blast beats and screaming vocals and most of their tracks are very short in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the riffs also use a great amount of tremolo picking.
As their side of the split progresses melodies can be heard in some of the riffing along with some elements of crust and punk and some of the tracks also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and their side of the split closes with some elements of ethnic music, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in German and cover violent and angry themes.
In my opinion Yacoepsae are a very great sounding mixture of power violence, crust and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Existenz" and "Schacht".
Next up is irate Architect a band that plays a mixture of brutal technical death metal and grindcore.
Their side of the split starts out with a very fast and brutal death metal sound that also uses a great amount of blast beats and the vocals bring in a great mixture of growls and screams and the faster sections of the songs are very heavily influenced by grindcore while the riffing can also get very technical at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs also use a decent amount of melody, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover anxiety, paranoia, and dark humor based love stories.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Irate Architect and if you are a fan of brutal, technical death metal and grindcore, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spitting Image" and "Sun In Black Ruins".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of death metal, crust and grindcore. 8 out of 10.
