This is a review of a split album between Germany's Wojczech and United Kingdom's Krupskaya both bands that have been featured before in this zine with the album being released on October 27th by 7 Degree Records and we will start off the review with Wojczech a band that plays a mixture of grindcore, crust and death metal.
Their side of the split starts out with drum beats along with some heavy riffing and high pitched screams a few seconds later while death metal growls a re utilized at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of grindcore elements and blast beats can be heard as well as a brief use of melodic guitar leads.
All of the musical instruments on their side of the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some elements of crust as well as a small amount of melody and the music always remains heavy. the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover personal issues, sarcasm and environmental issues.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Wojzech and if you are a fan of crust, grindcore and death metal, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Burning Solids".
Next up is Krupskaya a band that plays a mixture of grind and noisecore.
Their side of the split starts out with distorted noises along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while spoken word samples are also used briefly and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the vocals are mostly noisecore screams.
Throughout their side of the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while clean playing is also utilized briefly along with some crust style shouts, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover theosophy, darkness and violence themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Krupskaya and if you are a fan of grind and noisecore, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Frozen Bodies Against The Wire" and "Theosophical Separation Of The Earth".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of death metal, crust, grind and noisecore. 8 out of 10.
