thedowngoing - Untitled EP
Genre: Noisegrind, Noisecore, Grindcore
For Fans Of: Star Sete Sept, HIRS, Anal Cunt, Today Is The Day
thedowngoing are noisegrind outfit straight outta Newcastle, Australia and for a two piece band, these dudes make an ungodly amount of racket. While these guys sometimes tread in conventional grindcore territory with their riffs and drumming, they're firmly rooted in the noisier aspect of the genre. The vocals are amazing - high pitched screams that sound like they're tearing out someone's vocal cords as they're being delivered and gravelly, throaty lows. The cacophony of blastbeats and tremolo picking begins to just melt into your brain and after 9 tracks, it'll probably start seeping out of your nose. One thing's for sure - this is the most sonically intense thing to come out of Australia since 'Earth.Water.Sun' by Agents Of Abhorrence, and after one listen your ears will never be the same again.
