[ALBUM REVIEW] grudge! : No Acceptance

[rwp-review id=”0″]

Melbourne’s grudge! come at you with full force on their debut No Acceptance, recorded at Jason PC‘s (Blood Duster) Goatsound Studios. Grindcore doesn’t get any more raw sounding than this, with 22 minutes of music that sounds more brutal than Mickey and Mallory Knox (Natural Born Killers).

Abusing Hope opens up the floodgates with Rusty pulverizing the kit to Frank‘s vocal onslaught with a set of pipes that even Mario and Luigi wouldn’t mess with. Album single Stray Venom features hilarious album cover art, with Gina Rhinehart making Godzilla look like a supermodel. This shows the band knows how to poke a stick at the media. Never short of a stomping riff, guitarist Erik grooves along to the schizophrenic beats laid down by Rusty.

Track highlights include the longest track on the record, Distraction Mode, with its spoken word resembling Dillinger Escape Plan. Paramedic is a personal favourite, likely to see paramedics being called after punters thrash out in a pit to grudge! Closing up with a Descendants cover, Coffee Mug, which will put that extra grind in your coffee. Be sure to blast this sucker loud. For fans of King Parrot, Extortion, Napalm Death, or basically, anything that grinds.
