Transient are a band from Portland, Oregon that plays grindcore and they team up with California's harsh noise project Bastard Noise and mix their 2 different styles together and this is a review of their 2018 album "Sources of Human Satisfaction" which will be released in August by Six Weeks Records.
Power electronics start off the album along with some harsh noises a few seconds later which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs along with the vocals being mostly high pitched screams and when the musical speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Elements of grindcore can also be heard in the faster sections of the music while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the tracks being very short in length as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Transient and Bastard Noise creates a recording that takes grindcore and harsh noise and mixes them together to create something very different, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover angry themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding collaboration between Transient and Bastard Noise and if you are a fan of grindcore and harsh noise, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mother's Day" "Cave Mouth" "Leeches" adn "Bloodline". 8 out of 10.
