KURSK / DEFEATIST: Split: 7”

This very silly, very technical grindcore split is hard to dislike due to the sheer hilarity it delivers. I don’t think it’s a joke record, but I also don’t think either band takes itself too seriously. There’s a lyric sheet included so that the crazed grind/crust growls can be followed. Defeatist is the more impressive of the two bands, with drum beats so insane that the drummer must have tendonitis or some other dire physical ramifications caused via his craft. It’s comforting to know that straight grind records are still coming out, untouched by the related sounds that followed.
