Finland's finest grinders are back with seven new tracks of sweet sublime savagery.
200 copies. Cassette. Out Now!
No Clean Singing: In a nutshell, Combat Grind is a savage, fleet-footed adrenaline beast. Over the course of six compact tracks and slightly less than 10 minutes of running time, the EP makes an explosive impact. The music has a raw, corrosive, filthy sound, which is matched by the raw, bestial, straight-for-the-throat, bullet-spitting vocal insanity. The songs dependably erupt in bursts of pure, crazed violence — with maniacal drumming that sounds like the thundering hooves of a stampede or the battering of a thousand fists, viciously swarming riffs, and freakish, face-searing solos.
Toilet Ov Hell: You’re pissed that Combat Grind didn’t come out a month earlier to make it on your year end list.
Chambers comes on and in the first couple of minutes, I had to stop dead in my living room and sit my ass down. The drum sound was THAT immediate. Encoffinized drops the hammer and gets the hell outta town for an LP. While there may not be tons of trailblazing about this release, but I have to put plant a flag in the ground here and say that this kind of "sound" takes vision, personality, and dedication.

Been enjoying Hidden History of the Human Race for some time and I finally gave this album a listen. Damn me for waiting too long to do it; I'd say it's just as good as their sophomore LP, but in a different way. No doubt it's clearly Blood Incantation, but you can see the evolution in sound between the two albums. A masterful work of atmospheric prog death doom that sits among the best of extreme metal. Absolutely incredible musicianship in a debut album. Buy this LP, support Blood Incantation. camelhouse7
