Triac - Dead House Dreaming
'Grindcore, with metalcore brawn'
After only hearing to Triac's later releases (i.e In The Blue Room, Always Meant to Hurt You etc etc), Dead House Dreaming was a very different listen. On this release (their first, and only full length to date), Triac come off as more of a chaotic metalcore band, with very slight nods to mathcore (think Ed Gein or Burnt By The Son). So while you still get the pure brute force of a grindcore release, you also have the energy of hardcore running through its veins . With some interesting stop/start and slow/fast dynamics, and a Bauhaus cover to boot, this is a worthy prequel to the raw, noisy grind chaos to come from these guys.
