However, back to the two songs of each band, starting with Tides Of Sulfur. This band mostly resembles the death metal part of this split. Opener 'Lord Of Flies' even blends it with blackened vocals and a fierce crust/punk attitude. 'Crawling Through A Pit Of Ash And Bone' takes on a different approach but is still firmly rooted in tho old school death metal genre. It's a long track, driving on crushing riffs and blistering screams. Here the sludge part of the split shows itself for a short while.
The Air Turned To Acid opens with a raw and primitive sludge track in Sisyphus. The foundations are once again monolithic riffs and a set of pissed-off screams. Yet, here too elements from death metal and hardcore punk are present, offering enough variation to be enjoyable and certainly plenty of violence for your entertainment. Glandroid repeats that approach, be it in a whipping industrial tempo.
This is the music I expect to hear in squatted houses and underground festivals and it's perfectly suited for those activities. Once that audience is over the first suprise, I'm sure it will quickly form a massive mosh-pit and crowdsurfers will appear everywhere. Fans of death metal, sludge and punk can easily unite on these violent sounds and have a blast one these gigs...
