Tantalum – Survival

Today I propose you to read about the second release of Tantalum. This is an extremely talented grindcore formation from the USA (Texas) with members of
Cryptic Void, Mindboil, Holy Money, 50/50, and more.
The visual part of this lovely EP reminds me of illustrations of old science fiction novels by authors such as Isaac Asimov, Robert Sheckley, Robert Anson Heinlein. This is really not a standard art as for a grindcore release and I love the result!
You can not believe me but this small vinyl is full of aggression and hate, these 13 songs are a trip to one end, haha! Your ears drums will be damaged so badly, ha!

The whole EP is fucking survival, haha! The energy of this record is so violent, fast riffs are so wild and the sound will grind you into the bloody mess! The guitars have a great tone (they have a perfect downturned punk/hardcore sound), the bass is not so massive but it sounds pleasant. Blastbeats are fast as fuck, but I wish that the sound of cymbals was louder. One of my favorite parts of this material is a female vocal, damn, that lady makes really extreme screams!
I think the phrase “wild ride in a burning truck” could perfectly explain the whole crazy shit that you will feel and hear on this 7 inch!
