Sete Star Sept / Lotus Fucker [coll] – [SPHC]

Sete Star Sept (meaning seven star seven, evidently a pachinko term) is Kiyasu (drums) and Kae (vox/bass) describe themselves as noisegrind. They’re Japanese. SSS is grindcore for people who find grindcore too structured. The tracks on this side (titledxSupplication) are short blasts of noise, with vocals consisting mostly of the familiar screeching, growling, and pig noises we have come to associate with many of the x-core genres. Track 5 is an exception, which sounds panicked and distinctly female, is either in Japanese or gibberish, and has a somewhat more traditional punky sound. This split 7″ is an exclusive release of theirs, sold only on the Sete Star Sept 2014 North American Tour.

Lotus Fucker are based in DC and may be vegan. Their numbers are unknown. This side (aptly calledxDestroy All Music Now) consists of 70 (yes, really) staccato blasts of screeching machine noises, angry instrumentals, and human throat sounds that have longer titles than play times. The styles of the many tracks are actually rather varied while still working together as a cohesive side-long nightmare, running the range from barking and drumming to more industrial and even (almost) ambient moments. The whole side runs for about six-and-a-half minutes, so it’ll only hurt for a moment; just close your eyes, it will be over soon.
