Stop The Chaos

After what amounts to a 3 year break the Polish grinders of Antigama are back with a new label and everything. Those familiar with the and know that they have always been outside the norm of their given genre. Whether that means the inclusion of alternate lyrical concepts or even electronic bits. So their return is something to be happy about for any grindfreak.

Well they have managed to change a bit more. This time they take an ep project and essentially split it down the middle. Not to say it isn't a complete project, instead the first 3 songs blast by in usual Antigama fashion, that is to say pretty damn fast. The second half is where i along with many fans might find fault. Here the band play with tempos each of the last 3 songs reach nearly 3 minutes or more. In grind this is generally a no no i would imagine. Antigama make the most breaking into more death metal and hardcore parts. This includes a slowing of tempos including honest to god breakdowns.

Overall this is a cleanly recorded and played grind record. It still manages to be shorter than most any EP you can buy but seems long for a grind EP. Meanwhile, the band remain steadfast in their approach while still changing enough to remain their own bacd. Here's to the future of a band that continues to grow.
