Powerful punch! Bleeding eardrums! All out total destruction! All out total Grindviolence! This is what you are going to get when blasting the new Durian EP! Guys from New Jersey have no time for jokes, and this release is truly tight! I’m really happy that guys didn’t drop the music after Chainsaw to the Face has split up. Durian is more angry than its predecessor, but it has similar roots. By the way – the cover art of Brutalism reminds me a bit “Plague Worship” of CTTF. In my opinion this 4 pieces band kicks asses and now I will explain why… Black vinyl, 9 songs and a fuckin’ punchy opening; that’s what you’ll get if you put this 7” on your turntable. Bones’ flash and ferocious guitar is a true force of nature here, squeezing out notes at 100 miles an hour! Caveman style aggressive shouted vocal is truly savage, together with classical powerviolence screams they’re creating a nice mess. Drum section is a bit raw but damn good and fast. This EP has quite clanking bass, you can perfectly hear it in the song “Erase”. It’s hard to choose the best song/songs here, every shot is good and has biting anger! So grab a drink and blast this record until you’ve pissed off all of your neighbours. You won’t regret it. Rating: 8.5/10 Durian bc
