No songs stand out by themselves, but they aren't meant to: each one of them is a piece of a very solid and traditional album. Grindcore purists tend to be amazed by this, a far from innovative album but still very good. The music here is incredibly fast and violent, and mixes blast beats and a lot of snare drums with the most hardcore, pissed off, "didn't kill enough today" vocals I have ever seen.
The guitars are extremely fast and harsh, but they play a secondary role, since the band ends up making us focus our attention on the drums and on the screams. By the way, if there is actually any bass here I feel sorry for the bassist, because he wasted his time. It can be clearly seen that the band achieved what they were going for.
The production helps a lot: the album is thick and raw, maintaining the dirtiness that makes it so appealing to grindcore fans.
The lyrics are unintelligible a shitty grindcore symptom, but unfortunately you will have to cope with it , but the growls delivered by the vocalist are some of the most insane and inhuman ones I have ever seen, and that is because he simply forgets about the existence of pig squeals not that I miss the bree-bree-breeing. However, if you don't like grindcore more than you should and unfortunately that is my case you will find out that this album is not that appealing.
It is definitely good, but after ten minutes you have seen pretty much everything it has to offer. If you are a grindcore junkie, go ahead and pay whatever price you have to in order to acquire this. Otherwise, just download two or three songs including Street Sweeper, man that song is great Surely you can find something to criticize, something not quite perfect, even on your favourite albums?
The guitars are harsh and aggressive, often employing typically punky strumming and more metallic palm muted riffs. The drums are dependably tight, blasting and chaotic, predominantly using a mixture of blasts, thrash and d-beats broken up with lightning fast snare and tom fills. The vocals almost take a back seat, offering up a distorted layer of sickening guttural heaving and screaming.
The bass is buried almost completely in the mix and plays no real role beyond backing up the guitars. The crowning glory is in the production, probably helped by the tightness of the performance — full and thick, whilst retaining a dirty edge that really lets all the instruments shine through.
Of course none of what I have described here is especially new, unexpected or original and the album contains all the ingredients of pretty much any modern grindcore record - short, pounding tracks, with a few deathly metallic flourishes here and there.
It seems no metal sub-genre is free of their share of purists. These last years, the spotlight has been mostly on the experimentation or "open-mindedness" in the world of grind with albums by bands like Fuck The Facts, Cephalic Carnage, Brutal Truth, Agenda of Swine, Antigama or Inevitable End.
Conservationists seem to strongly disagree with those different branches of their dear genre pioneered by Napalm Death, Brutal Truth and Terrorizer among others. So here comes the answer of the now defunct Insect Warfare with their first and only full length World Extermination ; an attack of pure and old-school, conservative as it can be grindcore.
So as previously stated, Insect Warfare's goal isn't to make original metal of any kind, but to be a tribute to the true grind, play like in the good ol' eighties. What does that mean for the uninitiated? Real fast, short and brutal songs influenced by punk and hardcore talking about how the society we live in and the current trends suck.
Thus the fitting album title World Extermination and their band's name, Insect Warfare; they do a rant against a society that only deserve to be exterminated by maggot. Well that's quite of a hyperbole but you get the point. There isn't much more to say about the sound of the release, it has those bands grinding quality and some of the grooves more akin to Brutal Truth's Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses. Though compared to them, the unrelentlessness rarely slows, and barely - except when you switch the vinyl to side B.
The experience could comparable to the one of being pursued by a bloodied madman, hatchet in the air, in dark empty alleys of a poor district, barely halting to see if your attacker is still there - only by the corner of your eye. Or like a swarm of vicious insecticide toughened insects decimating all the weak in their path. It's fast, real fast and it's short too, the running time barely getting over 20 minutes. World Extermination achieves the same purpose as Origin's Echoes Of Decimation and Abigail's Forever Street Metal Bitch ; a short n' fast outburst of raw metal energy of their respective sub-genre, meant for several spins.
There are no standouts as everything sounds the same, it's not catchy, nothing will be stuck in your head as if you never listened the album in the first place though there are no fillers to be found, only the essential. While it's certainly an entertaining listen of brainless, pure and unadultered violence, the interest falls short to extended exposure.
If you liked Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses because of the mix of outbursts of violence and slower more death metal or groovy moments, you may feel the release is lacking. And if you have difficulties getting into grind because of seemingly purposeless bashing and lack of intelligence or artistic qualities, it certainly won't be your eye-opener.
You may give it a spin once in a while, but your day, week or month wouldn't be lacking of anything if you didn't have your dose of Insect Warfare; you may just listen to Brutal Truth instead. Trending Tracks 1. Features Exploring the local sounds and scenes at Noise Pop Fest.
