Here's a killer split featuring the latest material from Manchester UK's Pine Barrens and Groningen, Netherlands Grinding Halt.  I'm short on time, so I'll just use the label's press note as a description.

Another awesome pairing of bands on this 7” slab. Pine Barrens from the UK made a huge impression with their Kingmaker lp last year and the two tracks on here are in that same vein. Technical metallish hardcore rage which is hard to classify but if you want names i’ll say bands like Rorschach and Botch will cover some of it. Listen and judge yourself but i’m incredibly proud to partcipate in a release by these gents. They are simply briljant. Grinding Halt come forth with one longer track which combines everything they do so well. Mixing all the good stuff from hardcore, punk, sludge and metal with some high pitched vocals on top. Topnotch hardcore vinyl with killer artwork from Marald to finish it off.

Overall, this is a phenomenal split 7" and both bands absolutely slay on this 7".  Don't miss this one.  This split 7" was released via Degraanrepubliek records on February 27th, 2014.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
