Total Fucking Destruction - Monsters EP


Just the one review from me today, but then again I didn't think it would be right to write anymore because this is a Total Fucking Destruction review! That's right, I received their new two-track EP the other day and decided I couldn't deprive you of it. Of course, most of you will know TFD in their own right, even though they feature members of Old Head, Rumpelstiltskingrinder and Brutal Truth! That list goes on too.

So this EP has been released by Handshake Inc and Grindcore Karaoke. The download even comes with an exclusive video of TFD playing at Kungfu Necktie in Philadelphia, which was filmed by David Hall, head honcho at Handshake Inc.

Tracklist:-

1. Monsters
2. Is Your Love A Rainbow?

The first thing that sprung into my mind when I put this on was, could you imagine a grind band that took themselves seriously? I say that with the best possible intention, because there is too much tough guy posturing in extreme metal as it is, so we need to have somewhere to go to have fun and grindcore may well be the place to do that. I'm no music snob though, so if you're a purist who likes his/her grind straight faced, feel free to tell me otherwise.

Anyway, on with the show. The first thing that struck me, mainly because it's very bright and entertaining, was this EPs cover art. It's how I'd imagine TFD to look after they've played a particularly long set! First song on the EP is Monsters. It's one minute and twenty five seconds of screaming, flailing limbs and strangely twin guitar harmonies! There's some epic guitar work involved here and that drumming is pretty much off the scale, in terms of relentless speed. Is Your Love A Rainbow? is a rock opera in grindcore terms, being two minutes long. The lyrics are hilarious on this one and it's still crazy fast though!

I don't think I need to go on, in summary it's fast, loud and over before had chance to breathe. I just hope it gets pressed on super glow in the dark green vinyl or something!

Lucky for you, there's a stream of the EP in it's entirety over on the Grindcore Karaoke bandcamp page, but I've just pasted it below for you too:-

So there you have it peeps. The new TFD EP! Hell Yeah!
