This is a review of a split album between Belgium's Scum Noise and the United Kingdom's Grindlover which was released in 2013 by Symbol Of Domination Productions and we will start off the review with Scum Noise a band that plays a mixture of black metal, grind, noise and ambient.
Their side of the split starts out with harsh noise sounds and chants are also used briefly and they also mix in a great amount of power electronics along with a touch of ambient and drone and on the second track a very powerful sounding bass guitar and high pitched black metal screams make their presence known and they also bring in programmed blast beats in certain sections of their songs, the production sounds very raw and lo-fi while the lyrics cover hateful themes.
In my opinion Scum Noise are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, grind, noise and ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Power Of Hatred" and "The Birth of hatred".
Next up is Grindlover a band that plays electro noise/grindcore.
Their side of the split starts out with porno samples that are also a huge part of their side of the recording and after awhile electro and heavy parts are added onto their side of the recording along with some programmed blast beats also being utilized at times and they also bring in a track that is 25 minutes in length and the music is more experimental than some of their other recordings, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover pornography themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Grindlover and if you are a fan of grindcore, noise and experimental, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Hurry Sex With A Taxi Driver.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to fans of black metal, grind, noise and experimental. 8 out of 10.
