D9 / MONDO GECKO: Split: Pro CD-R

D9: Dual-vocaled grind, with the two typical types of grind vocals: screaming and growling. I like the screaming, but I don’t like the growling—mostly because I just don’t like guttural growling and never have. Mondo Gecko: Gnarly thrash that seems on the verge of crossing over. Dudes sound ready to skate. (On a side note, I’ve always found the word “mondo” pleasing to the ears.)
