Hate Eternal, which recently graduated from being a Morbid Angel side project to a full-time band, blends death and grind in a way that's distressingly retro, but ferocious nonetheless. Krisiun's new album, Works of Carnage, is blindingly fast, technically intricate, and produced by Cryptopsy's board-manner, for that extra inhuman touch. Cattle Decapitation is one of the fiercest bands around; its To Serve Man is a political-grindcore masterwork, unrelenting and savage. From top to bottom, this is a show worth catching. Just don't go in expecting melody or decipherable vocals, and you'll be fine.
