Reviews Sick/Tired Dissolution



Sick/Tired don’t mess about. They’re angry, and they want you to know about it and they do so via the medium of fast, raw grindcore. The Chicago band pound through fifteen short, but certainly not sweet, tracks in a delirious sub-twenty five minutes with guest collaborates Merzbow and Lasse Marhaug adding more noise bases compositions to the furious mix of hardcore and powerviolence. Sick/Tired force harsh vocal through stuttering guitars and rolling drums with songs not so much flowing, as bursting through the dams and raging for all they’re worth.

Dissolution is rammed with fiery punches of guitar that swing from one mode of hatred to another, Jennings' voice full of bile, spite, animosity and total resentment at any given moment yet more subdued passages push through the aggression and allow Sick/Tired a brief respite. Of course, any slower movements are still marred with agony, and the sludged out progression of "In Articulo Mortis" is still in keeping with the heavy, disparate edge that the preceding tracks showcased.
