Apartment 213 are a band from Cleveland, Ohio that plays a mixture of harsh noise, power violence and grindcore and this is a review of t heir 2006 album "Cleveland Power Violence" which was re-issued by Magic Bullet Records.
A very fast and brutal grindcore sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are angry shouts as well adding in movie samples at times and after awhile high pitched screams are added onto the recording and the music also mixes in elements of power violence.
A great portion of the tracks are very short in length while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also having their melodic moments and as the album progresses elements of power electronics and harsh noise can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Apartment 213 plays a musical style t hat is mostly rooted in power violence and grindcore while power electronics and harsh noise elements do appear at times, t he production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violence and serial killer themes.
In my opinion Apartment 213 are a very great sounding mixture of harsh noise, power violence and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should c heck out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Headache" "Cosmetic/Vanity" "Wife Beater" and "The Green River Killer". 8 out of 10.
