The Pitch: Canada, Sweden, and France join forces for a sickening grind ménage à trois between Nervous Impulse, Anüs, and Unsu. FFO: Pig Destroyer, Endon, Napalm Death
What I Like: I couldn't think of a better title for this album if I tried. Daily Grind is very much your business-as-usual grindcore album; a 9-to-5 of blastbeats, pig squeals, and high octane riffs. But you know what? I'm pretty sure fans wouldn't have it any other way. Second perhaps only to kvlt black metal, few genres have such a rabid base debating whether or not the latest album is "true." It's clear that all three of these bands love their job just the way it is and don't plan on retiring any time soon. So here's your annual evaluation from management: Great spirit and energy, solid work ethic, dedication to the brand, works well with others. Unsu flagged for potential supervisor material.
Critiques: The album quality is a little inconsistent. When going for brevity, the expectation is that the product is even more consistently top of the line.
The Verdict: Daily Grind is straight from some Midwestern factory conveyer belt to your ears: a trusted brand known for quality and customer service. Don't expect any bells or whistles, but it's built to last. The Unsu portion in particular warrants further review.
