June 24, 2013 – UK/World
Swiss Grind monsters return to the fold with their second Relapse full length Flies Will Starve. Four years in the making, Flies Will Starve further establishes Mumakil as behemoths of the grind-scene -24 overgrown songs of pounding blasting fury that make you feel like you’ve been run over by a herd of the fictional multi-tusked elephant beasts from which the band derived their name. An absolute must for grind-freaks the world over.
Grind! Know how I can tell? Only one song tops the 2 minute mark. And that is #24.
I LOVE IT!
Now I will try to decipher the good from the great here. I knew I loved Dawn of Slugs because of the name, but I think it’s pretty solid in backing up such a swarthy moniker. I actually could see myself slipping on my leg warmers and exercising to Get Exorcised.
Army of Freaks. Imagine that! Wrong Turn manages to squeeze some variety in little over one minute.
2. Dawn of Slugs
8. Get Exorcised
11. Army of Freaks
14. Wrong Turn
20. Begging for the Obvious
and #21-24 (No, I’m not being lazy. They all have something to offer).
