Norway's brutal hate machine Mindgrinder come back for a new album of extreme death metal. The band was formed in 2006 and released their first record, "Mindtech", in 2004. Now the band have released "Riot Detonator" for Nocturnal Art Productions and released stateside by the blooming Candlelight Records. The group is made up of Cosmocrator (Bass, Vocals, Programming), Nitrous (Lead-guitar) and Titan (Lead-Guitar), and Nex on battery (bass?). Fans of the older material of Meshuggah and the fast portions of Hate Eternal and Morbid Angel should enjoy this record.
Mindgrinder does just that, releasing a pummeling amount of technical brutality through nine cuts of aggression. One has to simply shake their head at the blast beat effects of the drums, easily diagnosed as a drum machine here with Cosmocrator handling the programming. Songs like "Death's Disciples" and "Pathetic Submission" give you a good indication of what type of metal this is...loud, brutal, and lightning fast.
Simply put...this is a speed fest blender of death metal extreme.
