Hey kids, you want a hit of some grindy metallic hardcore? Get in here and listen to the premiere of Trisma, a brand new split record from Germany’s Ill Neglect and Italy’s Lambs.
This ripper of a split 7″ opens up with Ill Neglect’s “Cold Turkey”, a violent and barely restrained serving of grind that warms up the crowd for their next track, “Permanent Euphoria”. It’s difficult to adequately describe the ignorant swagger the band presents on “Permanent Euphoria”, but allow me to try: Imagine Weekend Nachos with bounce riffs. It’s fucking awesome.
Hitting the flip side of this wax is Lambs, a band as intense as they are hard to pin down. “You, The Drawback”, their first track on the Trisma, is a snarling number that is equal parts mathcore and Nails. Closer “Unfeeling” rockets forth, an inferno of metallic hardcore hatred and pneumatic drill guitar riffs before bursting forth a hard-edged atmosphere that would be a welcome listen for Deftones fans.
