Grindustrial throws convention to the wind and delivers an album that mauls the senses
Deviation is the spice of life. Well, kind of, but liking a variety of different music keeps you on your toes. And the new Grindustrial album, No Wi-Fi, definitely keeps you on your toes.
Grindustrial is an Italian band that offers up a short sharp dose of industrial grindcore that is peppered with inventive samples. This is exemplified by the opening track Lento-Veloce. After a barrage of internet-dial up noise blast beats and savage guitars explode out of your speakers and let you know what you are in store for. Title track, No Wi-Fi, is just under thirty seconds of psychotic riffs and chopped up vocal samples. Pollos at times sounds like its being played backwards with an intensity that inspires.
Despite its short length, No Wi-Fi offers a break from the tedium of modern life and shows that despite conventional songwriting structures, no choruses or verses, just sheer hooks and unadulterated melodies. It’s a harder and heavier cousin to the Residents’ classic Commercial Album.
