This is a review of a split 7 inch between Greece's Stheno and Grassroll which was released by Everydayhate Records in 2014 and we will start off the review with Stheno a band that plays a mixture of black metal, crust and grindcore.
Their side of the split starts out with melodic female vocals an chants as well as some spoken word samples which leads up to a more heavy and violent sound that brings in death metal growls and high pitched screams and when the music speeds up blast beats are added in along with a good amount of crust and grind elements as well as a blackened death metal sound that utilizes some chaotic guitar leads at times and they remain in this direction throughout their side of the recording along with a powerful sounding production and lyrics that cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Stenho are a very great sounding mixture of blackened death metal, crust and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Demons Of Dust And Smoke".
Next up is Grassroll a band that plays a mixture of grindcore and sludge.
Their side of the split starts off with a very raw, fast and brutal grindcore sound that bring s in aggressive female screams and blast beats along with a heavy crust influence and on the alter tracks death metal growls are added into the music at times and when t he music slows down you can hear a decent amount of sludge and doom metal elements along with a very dark, heavy and raw production and lyrics that cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Grassroll are a very great sounding mixture of grindcore and sludge and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Carved Morality".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of death, black metal, grindcore and sludge. 8 out of 10.
