Most likely the best Dutch grinding hardcore/crust attack ever, but saying it this way we do short on what DrDoom accomplishes here!
This is actually the debut album from one of the finest Metallic Grindcore bands this side of Nasum’s unfortunate exit from the scene. DrDoom picks up almost exactly where that band left off with a collection of sixteen explosive and varied tracks that most definitely want the hardened grind/hardcore fan wanting more. This amazing band is certainly on its way towards the top of the modern grind scene, and anyone dedicated to that style of music is highly encouraged to pick this disc up.
The music on this album is in a perpetual state of explosion; every note is another package of C4 going off on your doorstep, and it is package full of surprises, but no happy birthday here! The riffs are fast, crusty, very diverse and occasionally technical, but moreover they’re possessing a ferocity never heard before on mainland Europe! Drums echo the riffs astoundingly, with an incredibly human and frantic performance on the kit giving even more life to the music and animating even the most calm sections. The greatest departure from the established Nasum style is in the vocals: here the music is accompanied by aggressive unhinged screaming, where every word feels like it takes five lungfuls of air to be voiced. Just when one brief track has completely used its musical ideas up, the band shotguns into the next, never leaving the listener space to breathe or comprehend what happened until the disc has finally finished... and leaves you gasping for air...
If you enjoy metallic grindcore, this should be the next item you add to your collection. DrDoom is alarmingly good at this style of music, and it’s rare to see a band in this style never lose step even for a moment in their race towards self-destruction and chaos.
