Su19b are one of the coolest bands in the game and I've ranted about them enough already and will do so more in the future. They contribute 1 fucking TERRIFIC track on here that really encapsulates their current style. It's HEAVY, it's BRUTAL, it's bleak, it lunges for you at full force but also stops on a dime, it's dynamic, it just sounds fucking evil. It's equally rooted in black metal, sludge, and power violence, in a way that's exciting and fresh.

Sea of Shit throw in 3 tracks of genre-exercise power violence that hits every mark in all the right ways. Ugly production, tight stop/start arrangements, totally raging shit. But it's "Contamination Effect" that really shows that they're more than the average power violence band, a quiet creepy track that I feel like shows a lot of Gas Chamber/Column of Heaven influence. It's really excellent and shows a stylistic depth that wasn't obvious to me on their previous releases (or maybe I just wasn't paying attention).

Great split all the way around!!
