Terminal Nation are a band from Arkansas that plays a mixture of hardcore, grind and power violence and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Absolute Control" which will be released in June by Deep Six Records.
Distorted amp sounds start off the ep along with some drum beats a few seconds later as well a some touches of harsh noise before adding in heavy riffing and aggressive hardcore style vocals and most of the tracks are very short in length and when the music speeds up elements of grind and power violence can be heard.
A decent amount of blast beats can be heard in the faster sections of the songs while back up gang shouts, grindcore and growls are also utilized at times 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 also remains very heavy from beginning to ending of the recording. and all of t he musical instruments sound very powerful.
Terminal Nation plays a musical style that takes hardcore, g rind and power violence and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent, hateful and real life themes.
In my opinion Terminal Nation are a very great sounding mixture of hardcore, grind, and power violence and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Numb To The Pain" "Hand That Feeds" "Violator_Violated" and "Broken". 8 out of 10.
