Split LP Stimulant / Water Torture is out now!

Water Torture makes a return with one last transmission on a schizophrenic split LP with their current musical incarnation, Stimulant. One side spins at 33RPM and the other at 45RPM, two distinct voices spewed from the same scarred psyches.

After experimental powerviolence bass pummelers Water Torture unceremoniously disbanded after releasing their first and only full length, 2014’s “Pillbox” followed by a European tour, and an appearance at Maryland Deathfest with a scant shows along the East Coast, 2/3’s of the crew bunkered down in Brooklyn to emerge in the form of Stimulant. A more twisted, paranoiac and uh, speedier version of their former selves, the Stimulant debut delved deeper into the psychoactive mind state of the current non-reality of the modern stage. Not quite finished with their former mission, both entities have endeavored in the dissociative form of a split release with themselves.

Wojczech / Krupskaya

There is a strange thing with this split. I looked at this image a lot of times, but my brain refused to define this picture as cover art for grindcore release, haha! First what I thought was “oh boy this is, probably a new SunO))) album”, but I didn't find the right logo. Indeed, this piece of art is pretty unusual for most grindcore acts, but if you check out the discography of Krupskaya you will find a strong visual connection with their previous works. Edgar Tumpkin (the drummer of Krupskaya) is in charge of all this dark madness. I must say he did a great job for this German vs UK split. Germans are the first who start the noise… Wojczech is an old and well known band (especially in Europe), they started more than 20 year ago (fantastic isn't it?). Well I noticed one strange thing with these songs. All of them were recorded 8 years ago, and they were used for this, lovely black vinyl. All 3 songs are damn good. These Germans poured Sludge, Metal and some Punk elements into a huge Grindcore base. I must admit, the mix sounds pretty nasty and tasty. Loud blast beats, good vocal line, song structures are pretty simple (but they could kill). The bass is loud and follows the guitars riffs and even has a few good stand-outs. Also there is small drop of sad tunes in the last bullet “Stunde Des Wolfes”, and this song has more metal taste, but i like it. Krupskaya is a very specific band from the UK. These guys really found their own way in noise. Truly fast aggression is mixing with slow melanholik parts… Sharp guitar sound with good tone and buzzing bass are blended with high screaming vocal and blasting drums. That sound mess is totally sick, even schizophrenic, but at the same time impressive. This band has one more feature - the deep atmosphere, just check the last track “Frozen Bodies Against The Wire” and you will understand what I mean. All noisey,chaotic, avant-garde tunes and crazy broken tempos in these songs make Krupskaya stand out from the average Grind band. Rating: 8/10 Krupskaya Wojczech

Faršas / Whoresnation (Deaf Death Husky Records)

I bet the idea of this split was born before the tour of Faršas and Whoresnation. Anyway this collaboration is tight as hell, together these bands generate pure and killer noise! So first of all let's look at this tape and you know what? It's freaking green! My favorite color, haha! I don't know who, but someone did a nice job with all the designing. A combination of green tape and nasty cover art are creating wizardly look. This atomic green split hosts 28 toxic songs of varying Grindcore madness. Needless to say this release is also interesting because both bands are absolutely different. So now let's check out the noise. First on the line is the squad from Lithuania. I must say that this band is underestimated, but we will try to fix that. First of all, our friends have a unique sound and style, they use no guitars, only super distorted bass guitar. Be careful because its deep buzzing sound will grind you down. The second feature is the vocals. They sound so strange, aggressive and annoying, haha. It reminds me of Anal Cunt's style. But, what is Grindcore without blast beats? That's right we have here nice, punky, blasting drums which perfectly fits with this music. Grindcore is the main base in Faršas noise, but I noticed tighny Powerviolence and Hardcore influences in this crazy mess (that makes this Grind more spicy). Whoresnation is a good example of new age Grindcore, they didn`t stop on only Grindcore, they are using Hardcore, Metal and some Punk elements. Their side was recorded at a gig in Torvi in Lahti, Finland. Yes it's a live recording but in spite of it, it sounds pretty nice. At the beginning of this tape, Pierre talks to the audience like a real black metal man, with gravelly and ugly screams, haha! After that,the guys turned into a twister. Song by song, these bastards are torturing our ears with their ferocious Grind. Hard to handle this hurricane of riffs and blast beats. Unfortunately the guitar sound is a little bit cluttered by the vocals and drums (it's a sad part of this live recording). That raw blasting sounds especially good here when I hear every single bit of the snare and thunderous screams of the cymbals. I bet that Whoresnation kicked asses on that gig, ha! I'm sure that this split is already rare, so if you find this piece in someones distro, act fast or cry later. Rating: Faršas: 8/10 Whoresnation: 7.5/10
