Wow, this really doesn't give a good impression of grinding Death Metal. In fact, it has just about every thing in it that I really don't like about the combination of the two genres. Danny Tanner (named after the father from sitcom 'Full House' - Hilarious(!)) not only have artwork that looks like a retarded 5 year old has drawn it, but a complete lack of attack. Sure, grinding Death Metal isn't about dynamics and gentle acoustic passages, but for fuck sake, at least put some decent riffs in to make up for the awful battalion of uber-fake drum machine trauma and 'urr urr urr URRRRRR' vocal work.
Don't get me wrong, I love the likes of Nasum, Mortician, Devourment and even Pustulated (at a stretch), but this... well, it's just not very good at all. At least these guys try to inject something new by slipping a few piano excerpts and jazzy passages, but it just sounds mixed up and confused amongst all the pig squeals, guttural grunting, bland 'riffs' and pointless movie clips - not to mention that fucking God awful drum machine - did I mention that? I really found this hard to sit through, and when you take into consideration that it's only just under 23 minutes in length, that should give you all the clues you need.
The Finest Grind? Hardly. I'd prefer genital grinders if this is anything like the future thanks.
