TENTACLES: Ambivalence: LP

A pretty brutal merging of grindcore and screamo: slow, drawn-out instrumental parts butting up against the ceaseless, punishing relentlessness of the songs themselves. Pretty dang solid, whether the vocalist is willfully sacrificing throat-lining and the double bass is a blur, or they’re just building layers of sound on a single, ominous, loooong riff. Severe throughout. Screen printed covers and a release between multiple labels. Nice work.
