Hardcore Anal Hydrogen are a band from Monaco that plays an experimental mixture of death metal, hardcore and grind with some elements of jazz and black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Hypercut" which will be released in March by Apathia Records.
Aggressive drumming along with some heavy riffing and underground electronic music elements start off the album before going into a very fast and brutal grindcore direction which also uses a mixture of hardcore style vocals and death metal growls as well as all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful.
At times the music gets very avant garde and experimental while the solos and leads are done in a very chaotic fashion along with the music also mixing the electronic music and heavy parts together as well as the music also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
When saxophones are added onto the recording they add in elements of avant jazz while the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody at times along with one track also bringing in elements of 50's era blue before returning back to a heavier direction as well as one track also mixing in elements of mid 50's to early 60's pop music and some later tracks add in touches of classical music and black metal and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length and also introduces spoken word parts and clean vocals onto the recording.
Hardcore Anal Hydrogen plays a musical style that captures the heaviness of death, black metal, grind and hardcore while also experimenting with many other musical genres, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and their native tongue and cover humorous themes.
In my opinion Hardcore Anal Hydrogen are a very great sounding experimental mixture of death metal, grind and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Jean Pierre" "Paul" "Entopie, Maxinum" and "Automne 1992". 8 out of 10.
