SLOWLY WE ROT - Poverty Of Existence

GENRE - Crust, Blackened Hardcore, Grindcore
FFO - End Reign, Harrowed, Depravation
D/L - Zippyshare or Bandcamp

OK so this cassette came out a few months ago, and a lot of sites have covered it already, but I'm mentioning it again here because I love it so fucking much. As goofy-sounding as "Blackened Hardcore" is for a genre, it really is my absolute favorite kind of hardcore. And Slowly We Rot does it perfectly. Hailing from Belgium, they rose from the ashes of Worms Feed (who put out one of my favorite records still to this day), and this tape picks up right where WF left off. Again, for me, it all comes down to the production and execution. Something sounding solid while being out of control at the same time. Hardcore that's dark and mean, all the levels in the red, yet not sounding messy. I guess that's just a description of blackened hardcore. Whatever it is, it's fucking rad. So, if for some reason you haven't grabbed this yet, get it now. A link to buy the cassette is above and I also believe a vinyl release is planned.
