The Drip-A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics

The Drip are among the latest signees to Relapse, and their grinding might is not to be questioned. Their upcoming six song EP A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics is devastating in brutality and speed, coming across at a million miles an hour and showing that traditional deathgrind will never die. Rapid, rotten, and evil, this is a band who roar out of your speakers and grab you by the throat, grindcore for the next generation of freaks, hold on to your hats and see if you can stick through.

From the first it is clear how big an influence bands like Nasum are on this group. Yet, The Drip clearly have something of their own going, they have been able to distill thirty years of grind into only a few minutes with this new record, capturing the magic of a genre and crushing skulls across the globe. When turned all the way up, you start to get a sense for the sheer grinding dominance of this group. A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics is simply that, blasting viciously and violently, beating the listener into submission and for some reason making them spin the record again and again.

The world needs more top notch grindcore. Not a lot of groups still pursue a sound this basic and this violent. Even greats like Napalm Death have gone to explore new pastures. Yet, the primitive might of The Drip is beautiful. A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics is one of the most simply enjoyable grindcore EP's of the twenty first century. It gets at the heart of the genre and rips it out, still beating, for fans like us to gaze upon. So let your hair fly and body shake, The Drip bring the grind and your soul shall soon be crushed.
