When I think of Poland, I think of pork knuckles, Eastern European women and a growing Grindcore scene. Antigama are just another one of the grindcore bands that has popped their heads above the fallen iron curtain in the last couple of years, and to be honest I don't see them referring back to this album in the future as one of their best releases. The album is short on time for a supposed full release (24 minutes long but with 10 and half minutes of static crap...sorry art) what you do actually get to listen to is light on substance and a constant wall of sound. Some grindcore enthusiasts may think short and sweet can't be beat however for me I couldn't see myself spending my hard earned when there a lot more 'mainstream' grind acts that I would go for. The incoherant processed vocals, lack of bass and drum machine-like banging led me to listening in short bursts in order to review fairly. In saying all this, I hope they prove me wrong and future releases are given more thought as to what they want to achieve. Weird noises, static and mechanical vibration is encouraged if there is a story to be told otherwise it just comes of as slightly pretentious or lost.
