This is a review of a split album between Sweden's Resonance Cascade and Jarnbord called "Hyperakusi" which will be released in 2017 as a joint effort between WOOAAARGH and Downfall Records and we will start off the review with Resonance Cascade a band that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of grindcore and d beat.
Their side of the split starts out with a very heavy guitar sound before speeding and up going into a grindcore direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and the vocals are mostly high pitched screams and the music also mixes in a touch of old school Swedish death metal and elements of harsh noise can also be heard at times.
All of the musical instruments on their side of the split have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great amount of d beat elements along with a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and most of the tracks are very short in length and some of the riffs also bring in a small amount of melody and spoken word samples can also be heard briefly and all of the songs stick to a very heavy and brutal sound.
Resonance Cascade plays a musical style that takes brutal grindcore, Swedish death metal and d beat and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Resonance Cascade and if you are a fan of grindcore and d beat and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dead Peasants" "Rid Of Reason" "Death Approaching" and "Failure".
Next up is Jarnbord a band that plays a mixture of grindcore and punk.
Their side of the split starts out with spoken word samples before going into a heavier grindcore direction while the vocals are mostly hardcore punk style shouting and yelling and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and most of their tracks are very short in length while also adding in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there is also a brief use of atmospheric sounds while the music always remains brutal while saxophones a re used for a few seconds on the last track.
Jarnbord plays a musical style that takes grindcore and mixes it with hardcore punk to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Swedish and cover issues of enduring and maintaining your sense in an idiotic world.
In my opinion Jarnbord are a very great sounding mixture of grindcore and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "65 Sen Doden" "Lets Die" and "Nykter Utsovd Pumpad".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of crust, hardcore, d beat and grindcore. 8 out of 10.
