Endless Swarm - Mindkiller

Endless Swarm

(Band Submission)

Review by Brayden Bagnall

Genre/s: Powerviolence, Grindcore
For Fans Of: Cyborg, The Afternoon Gentlemen, Spazz, Napalm Death

Phwoar. Endless Swarm are four piece band from Edinburgh, Scotland who play some really neat, super gritty powerviolence. There's plenty of crusty grind influence in Endless Swarm's music (I got a really strong Afternoon Gentlemen vibe), as well as nods to some old school powerviolence and hardcore. Across the nine tracks on 'Mindkiller' you'll be assaulted by a multitude of different vocals - a pretty impressive range actually, crust shrieks, the 'angry man' (TM) and growls, usually trading off with each other in quick succession. Additionally there's some meaty, sludge-y riffs to sink your teeth into and plenty of tempo changes and blast beats to tap your feet/shake your fingers to. All in all, a solid release from a city not yet known for its' powerviolence scene. Snag 'Mindkiller' at Endless Swarm's bandcamp page as a pay-what-you-want download.
