Let's start with Augurs, the band who delivered the longest song. 'From Maggots To Flies' is a four minutes lasting rollercoaster of violence and brutality. Augurs blends several genres, yet the focus is mainly on hard- and grindcore. The tempo switches several times but the intensity does not. Starting out with chaotic riffing, blastbeats and haunting screams, they really set the tone for this split.
Deathgrave continues the assault and has no intension to leave any survivors. Their highspeed and fierce grindcore is not for the faint-hearted. The blast-beats continue and the screams nudge towards old black metal. These three songs are short, powerful and completely over the top. But that's the fun part about it, it really is. Deathgrave also wins the songtitle contest with the hilarious title'Hugged In Half'.
This split is to be released on March 17th 2015 as digital product through Sentient Ruin and as 500 vinyl 7"'s as a co-release between Sentient Ruin, Trill Kommand (US), Shove Records (IT/EU) and The Path Less Traveled Records (US). Fans of raw, punishing extreme metal might want to check this one out, it rarely gets deadlier than this...
