(U.K.) The Atrocity Exhibit-Extinction Solution LP (2018)

Country: United Kingdom
Genre: Hardcore, Punk, Metal, Crust, Grindcore
Tracks: 19
Length: 16.20'

The masters of grind n' roll return with a new masterpiece, bristling with blasts, riffs and incomprehensible screaming. 'Extinction Solution' is a masterclass in hook-laden, 'fun' grind, but do not mistake the term here to mean 'not filled with blast beats and ear shattering vocals'.

Clocking in at around 22 minutes long the Northampton three piece waste no time with overlong intro/outro sections or frilly atmosphere, ATROCITY EXHIBIT go straight for the jugular, with old school Napalm Death-esque slippery guitar riffs snuggled up neatly against rock and roll rhythms that would give Lemmy cause to grin ear to ear.

The album rolls through several themes and is really nicely bookended with short, rocking riffs which, while not being identical, share a thematic similarity. The album as a whole hangs together amazingly well, there is a real sense of care in the composition of these songs. Everything is super tight from the songwriting to Matt's ridiculously clean drum sound and performances. Tracks blur from blasting gang vocals and brain shredding trem picking riffs to building chord progressions to grooving Motorhead beats and moments of dreadlocked, crust infused glory fit to have the surliest Doom fan punching the air and stamping their feet.

This is a properly excellent extreme music release that will please all smelly crust and grind fans, a strong competitor for grind album of the year!!
