The Drip are a band from Seattle, Washington that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of crust, power violence and grind and this is a review of their album "The Haunting Fear Of Inevitability" which will be released in 2017 by Relapse Records.
A very heavy sound along with some aggressive hardcore style vocals start off the album and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when t he music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and screams are also add into some parts of t he songs and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and groove.
A great portion of the tracks are very short in length and throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and a great amount of crust and d beat elements can be heard along with the rawness and brutality of grindcore and power violence and growls are also utilized at times and when guitar solos and leads are utilized briefly they are don in more of a dark and melodic style and all of the songs stick to a heavy musical style.
The Drip creates another recording that remains true to the grindcore, crust, power violence and d beat mixture of their previous release, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and angry themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from the Drip and if you are a fan o f grindcore, d beat, power violence and crust, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Anathema" "Covered In Red" "Wretches' and "Bone Chapel'. 8 out of 10.
