Description

These guys have been creating socially conscious grindcore in the vein of Napalm Death since the mid-eighties. The band was formed in Antwerp in Belgium back in 1987. The band classifies their style of music as mincecore. Jan Frederickx stated in an interview that mincecore is the same as old school grindcore, the way it was in the 80s: raw, minimalistic and socially and politically involved. The long running act Agathocles seldom gets the attention they deserves and with countless of singles and split releases made its nice when someone sometimes releases an album like this that features material taken from different split releases. The tracks on this disc got a very nice, full sound with a thick yet raw guitar tone and a solid drum presence. The tracks themselves are very strong with a great emphasis on groove and brutal riffing. Tempo and rhythm changes are frequent and well crafted, shifting from punk bounce to blast to death metal chug without one unnecessary note. While I dig Agathocles pure grind material a lot, I can’t deny that the tracks on this release that is essentially purely death metal has a lot of charm. The material here really got very few flaws; the vocals could perhaps be a bit more guttural and the snare could be tuned up a bit more, but overall it’s pretty satisfactory all around. Overall, a very solid side from Agathocles; only wish it was a bit longer but it’s Agathocles so I guess that pretty much comes with the territory.
