Defeatist – Triac – Asra [coll] – [Deep Six]

Defeatist_Triac_ASRA 3-way split

2010 three-way split 45 featuring east coast grindcore bands. Defeatist (A1-A2, B1-B2) are from NYC, Triac (A3-A4, B3-B4) are from Baltimore and Asra (A5-A7, B5-B7) are also New Yorkers. The three groups more or less share a vision (kinda complex, spastic grindcore), but each seems to have a specific area of interest within the genre. Defeatist are on the Crossover Thrash side with a bit of a Voetsek sound. Triac draw on Hardcore and Crust and end up sounding somewhat like Buried at Birth. Asra bring in more death metal, especially in the vocals department (there are pig squeals), for an early Brutal Truth sound. Each band has its moment here, but Triac emerge victorious to my ears, even if one of their tracks (B4) is a couple covers from Black Flag and The Cherubs. Guaranteed to turn any enclosed space into a circle pit.
