||From Brazil comes a grind/hardcore band named
Seige of Hate.
Personally, I’d say they sounds like Soilent Green, SOD, and
Napalm Death but I’m sure there are a bunch more. Think speed,
thrash, and grindcore with punk/hardcore esthetics. This CD is filled
with short songs, speed-thrash type riffing, inspired by Terrorizer,
Napalm Death, and Brutal Truth. “Subversive By Nature”
is not really death metal, but you can hear influences. There are
parts that remind me of early death metal. Most riffs just shred,
a few slower paced riffs are mixed in but are generally on the longer
tracks. The slow tracks do refresh the album instead of having nonstop
insanity throughout the disc. If there weren’t a few alternating
riffs it would be nothing but a barrage or wall of sound. The vocals
remind me of Max Cavalera at times…hey they are from Brazil.
It works well for their style. Overall there are a bunch of average
songs with a few highlights, “Obscene Truth,” “Forthcoming
Holocaust,” and “Martyr Of Fools.” Many of the tracks
weren’t really long enough to get into, or if you got into it,
the song was already over. With twenty tracks and a little over thirty
minutes there is bound to be much more on this disc for fans of grindcore
and to a lesser extent hardcore.
