I'm not big on grindcore but I do tolerate death/grind in small doses. It's been awhile since I last listened to these grinding vegans, who do seem to unnerve a few people with their lyrical content—and sometimes their artwork (this one shouldn't get anyone's panties in a bunch.) Death Atlas has its share of speed, as one would expect, but it's also very melodic, more than what is usually done in the genre. It's those melodic parts that I found the most attention-catching as they have a bit of an end-of-the-world apocalyptic and depressing vibe to them. The vocals often switch to a... hmmm... "melodic chipmunk" style that I have found to be annoying and still can't get used to after several listens. If you like Cattle Decapitation, you'll probably get a kick out of this, but it's not an album that will win over their deterrents.
