WAR MASTER / UNHOLY GRAVE
(USA / Japan)
LP | "Split"
2014 | REGURGITATED SEMEN RECORDS
This split here is an unholy alliance of fucked up Death Metal and Grindcore:
WAR MASTER from Houston, Texas, USA were formed in the year 2009 and they took their name from a BOLT THROWER song. The band might be expected to sound like BOLT THROWER but the truth is more nuanced, WAR MASTER´s style is more into rough and catchier swedish-like Death Metal, like older ENTOMBED, CARNAGE or GRAVE. On this split release they deliver two violent and very brutal songs.
On the flipside their split partner UNHOLY GRAVE from Japan play this style of Grindcore they are famous for: very raw Old School stuff with the standard madman howls, riveting angular and tremoring blasts, all lifted straight from a rehearsal recording to deliver extreme rawness and brutality. The five sonx here were recorded in late 2011 / early 2012 and finally got mastered by Takaho himself in february 2012.
Limited edition of 400 copies on Black vinyl, the LP comes with extra info / lyric sheet.
