I normally hesitate to even review grind, but I am forced to make a distinction between grindcore, which is universally shit, and deathgrind, which is only usually shit. Blastanus show off some decent Death Metal chops and even a dash of technicality on this disc, but they are ruined by the usual grindinsh failures: short shapeless blobs in place of songs, speed and density in place of songwriting, and stupidity in place of any genuine lyrical ideas. If this band decided they had anything to say, and wanted to write actual songs, I think they could do it. Until then they will remain just slightly less intolerable than the usual run of grind.
