This is a review of a split ep between U.S.a's Endorphins Lost and Canada's Osk which will be released in February as a joint effort between Rotten To The Core Records, Delusions Of Terror Records, Agromosh Records, You All Die Records, and New Age Pyrate Punks Records and we will start off the ep with Endorphins Lost a band that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of crust, grindcore and power violence.
Their side of the split starts out with a very fast and brutal grindcore sound along with a great amount of blast beats while the vocals are mostly crust style shouts, growls and screams while the slow and mid tempo sections of the songs also mix in a great amount of power violence elements.
Throughout their side of the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while most of their tracks a re very short in length along with some hardcore elements, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Endorphins Lost and if you are a fan of crust, grindcore and power violence, you should enjoy their side of t he split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "White Crosses" and "Prisoners Dilemma".
Next up is Osk a band that plays a mixture of grind and hardcore.
Their side of the split starts out with a heavy guitar sound along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are mostly grindcore style screams along with most of their tracks being very short in length along with the riffs also bringing in a small amount of melody.
Throughout their side of the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some elements of punk and hardcore as well as the music always remaining very heavy, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Osk are a very great sounding mixture of grind and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Lets Play A House Show".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of crust, grind, hardcore and power violence. 8 out of 10.
