Pain Tank are a band from Washington D.C that plays a mixture of hardcore and grind and this is a review of their 2017 album "97,901,726 Confirmed Kills" which will be released in March by Edgewood Arsenal Records.
Distorted amp sounds start off the album along with some drum beats a few seconds later awhich also leads up to vocals that bring in a mixture of hardcore shouts and grindcore screams while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording as well as some death metal growls.
When the music speeds up a great amount of brutal blast beats can be heard while most of the tracks are very short in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and none of the songs ever use any solos and leads and the music always sticks to a heavy direction and they close the album with a track that is very long and epic in length.
Pain Tank plays a musical style that takes hardcore and grind and mixes them together to create a very heavy recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyric cover war and violence themes.
In my opinion Pain Tank are a very great sounding mixture of hardcore and grind and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dollar Sign Suicide" "Driving Back the Occupier" "When Integrity Means Death" and "Barcodes And Byproducts". 8 out of 10.
