Hell's bells, this is madnes! Huge, unrelenting, head-in-a-tumble-dryer grind is what's going on, torn musically between the hulking horror of Brutal Truth and the lean, scything viciousness of Discordance Axis. The sound is IMMENSE, the thing exuding a real sense of fraught, anguished volatility and surging forth like it's going to charge headfirst through your living room wall. If the vocals are often what you'd expect from a grindcore album (i.e. garbled; throat-mangled; indecipherable) Atomçk also deploy a 'secret weapon' that'll likely leave this one dividing opinion: weird, chirrupy vocalisations that sound like a frog being stepped on. They initially serve as an odd distraction, but as the album progresses they add to a sense of unpredictable, claustrophobic mania that can be very hard to put yourself through, ultimately rendering this a more challenging grind release than most.
