When you think of grind core, you think face melting riffs with insanely fast drums. While this record has both, one thing this band does is make both of those a little easier on the ears. The production and mix is fantastic. They are clear enough where you can tell where the notes change and such. But they do keep the signature grindecore/brutal death metal sound. Super deep guttural screams, with downtrend face melting guitars. One thing that sticks out to me, is how well arrange this tiny batch of songs is. each track is just pummeling, and right when you start to get used to it, the beat down is over.
The songs flowed exactly how you would expect them to. They are fast and utterly relentless. Im pretty sure these four tracks have to do with humanity being on the brink of self annihilation. With titles like ‘What’s left’ and ‘Brains for sale’, I feel like I’m on track with my guess.
There is replay value here for sure. I’m not a huge fan of grind core. But Stench of Profit isn’t your typical grindcore. They also have a mix of brutal death metal in their sound. My favorite part of the ep is the length of tracks. I would love to see longer ones for sure. But the shorter tracks proves that they don’t waste any time and aren’t here to fuck around.
Overall, I back this project. Its utterly relentless, and is sure to kick you in your teeth. For fans of grind core like Napalm Death and Pig Dectroyer, you are sure to enjoy this record.
