Pretty rough stuff from Belgium is literally shaking the dust off my speakers. This is indeed what the CD title already promises: Grind Core, aggressive and very Old School. That means, most of their "songs" - or rather: noise explosions - last hardly longer than 30 seconds, and the sound has some weird effects - which could be on purpose, too. Some of those 40 tracks even resemble conventional songs, with sort-of-melody and structure, that even have a quite nice groove, e.g. Bang Bang, Worthless or Desk Armada. Moreover, Agathocles are socially conscious and political. For example, they don´t make much of a secret what they think of dedicated Black Metal fans & Satanistic philosophy (Horns Up - Fuck Off), Globalisation (Knights of the cash) or so-called "Mc-Jobs" (Arbeit macht krank = work makes sick).
Sadly, after the recordings were done, bass player Tony took his own life. Yet Agathocles decided to keep on going. They have not invented Grind anew, but this is a solid piece of work and something a genre fan should add to the CD collection.
