On the other hand, Grindcore powerhouse, GRIDLINK bitterly resume a campaign of incomprehensible anger with their fourth album – Coronet Juniper via Willowtip Records. Eleven relentless tracks, consumed with unending conflict, turn the ground to ash beneath them as they advance, meter by meter. The primary architects return with the following line-up: Matsubara Takafumi – guitar, Bryan Fajardo – drums, and Jon Chang – vocals. Joined now by Mauro Cordoba – bass, GRIDLINKS’s poisoned arteries draw from Discordance Axis, Mortalized, Cognizant, Maruta, and Sex Virgin Killer, among others.
FOSSILIZATION, one of the most acclaimed and praised newcomers in the underground recesses of the contended and highly demanding Death Metal feud, are finally back with their first full album ‘Leprous Daylight’, their most crushing and brutally wrenching release via Everlasting Spew Records! 8 new savage tracks soaked in doomy despair, maliciously crafted and fiercely executed, a must have for all the fans of the Brazilian band and the whole Death Metal genre!
“I started working on ‘Leprous Daylight’ right after the recordings of the split with Ritual Necromancy. I knew I wanted to take a different direction with this full length album, it had to be faster and brutal as much as I could but without compromising my songwriting. I think Leprous Daylight is Fossilization’s most violent effort so far but still full of the melancholy and sadness you have been used to with our previous releases.” (V.)
