Chadhel / Assiduous Assault


If you love fast and chaotic grindcore, this split is for you! This CD with the US and Canadian grind freaks brings us total mind destruction. So let’s spin this mdf!

Chadhel are short and concise. Great speed and furious energy are the main foundation stones of this record. The general sound is massive, this is not exactly my cup of tea, but the sound engineer did awesome work! The sharp guitar sound and same dangerous riffs simply ripping off pieces of your flesh. Won’t say that this screaming vocal is a strong side of this recording session, but it`s good enough. The drums are pretty modern (but this is not old-school grindcore, right?), but they sound really impressive.

Californian blast bandits Assiduous Assault recorded 13 songs for this teamwork. This material is rich with the dissonant guitar sound and ultrafast blast beats. I want to highlight good vocals and wonderful speed. I think this is their debut release and the guys did their best. There are also some nice samples from the different stand-up shows, they work like pauses, and help you to take one more breath before another track. I really dig this stuff, but there is one negative moment in this buzzing mess. It`s sound… don`t know why but it`s compressed as hell and has a lack of dynamic.

If you`re looking for some nice fresh grind split, not old school one, with a more modern approach and sound, then this is it!
