INDUSTRIAL HOLOCAUST / LOTUS FUCKER: Split: 7”

I’m pretty surprised that I’d never heard of Brazil’s Industrial Holocaust before now. They’re pretty good and have apparently been around since 1991. They deliver bottom-heavy, blown-out grind that’s obviously influenced by early grind/death and pulls exactly zero punches. I tend to like their slower riffs (à la Unholy Grave) but there’s a lot to love here. Lotus Fucker lay down their swan song on the other side. It’s not as dressed up as some of their other records, but they wear the lo-fi recording style well here. –Ian Wise (SPHC, sphc.bigcartel.com)
