Death Toll 80K - Harsh Realities
Rodel Records | FDA Rekotz
Arguably the best grindcore album I've heard in 2011, Harsh Realities is not fucking around. Death Toll 80K burst out of the gate, and these Fins do not relent for a second through their 23 tracks of vitriolic violence. That being said, these guys know when to throw in a thrash or death inspired riff to keep things from getting boring, much like classic grindcore bands such as Pig Destroyer, Nasum or Circle of Dead Children.
The whole of everything is then coated in a veneer of crust and thrown at you like a baseball made of worms and coated in viscera. For those who like to know what all the growling is about, Death Toll 80K are into social issues and political commentary, so if that's your thing you'll have to find the lyrics; you're not going to decipher much from these monstrous growls and piercing screams.
Fans of the aforementioned classics and newer grind acts like Insect Warfare, Despise You and Phobia should be overjoyed to hear this album.
