The Drip : A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics

The-DripExploding opener ‘Catalyst’ sets the tone for this short-sharp-shock of an E.P. by Washington State’s The Drip.

Pummelling dirty-rotten Grind is what this band deal in. This release only just makes it past the ten minute mark; they’re concise if nothing else. A frantic smash through six tracks that are hate filled bursts of mindless rage and massive waves of death flavoured guitars and drum barrages.

With nothing getting anywhere near the three minute mark here, it’s Grindcore reminiscent of the great Napalm Death, but the Stockholm styled guitars make for a loud and proud straight death metal influence.
