(Vonlughlio has brought us another recommendation, which he describes in this post — a 2020 demo by a relatively new band from Belarus.)
Being able to write here on NCS about the bands in one of my favorite genres (Brutal Death Metal) is something that I have been grateful for, to help spread the word with the hope that readers will find something they might like.
I am always on the lookout for releases coming up from new and unknown bands that will grab my attention. So on that note, I have to write about a band called Grimentity who released their three-song promo To Perfection this past February — two original tracks and a Lock Up cover.
The project is a trio hailing from Minsk, Belarus, that was born in 2018, combining death and grindcore elements. Soon after their birth they released their first demo The Power of Broken, with two songs that gave a great representation of their music. The band is Roman Drobishevski (drums), Pavel Lapkovski (guitar, vocals), and Nikita Metelskiy (vocals, bass).
I became aware of this band since the guitarist is part of Relics of Humanity a BDM band that I love, and so I decided to check Grimentity. I am glad I did so, because this is an excellent demo that displays their musical abilities through a great combination of grind and death, with a production and song structures that are pure, straightforward hate — spiteful, in-your-face music. When you listen you can appreciate each of the instruments as they play their key roles in this effort and shine through in 8 minutes of killer riffs, furious blast-beats, and crunchy bass lines, with vocals patterns that fit 100% with the music.
I’m really impressed with what they have to offer and can’t wait for them to release a full-length. If the demos are an indication of what that sound is going to be, well, sign me up. So if you have the chance, please give them a listen. To Perfection is available as a name-your-price download on Bandcamp.
