Searingly intense, blink-and-you'll-miss-it four way split between Earthenwomb, Enbilulugugal, Graveterre, and Venowl, with each project turning in very black metal inspired compositions that aim straight for the thrashing, depression-laced interiority of social isolationism. Vague whispers of melody and grand rock posturing permeate each of the four tracks here, from Earthenwomb's stately and anxious "Panicgrass" to Enbilulugugal's drunken thrashgasm "Lamenting the Goatbong" (featuring an awesome guitar solo!) to Graveterre's diseased industrial ambient mess "Gesitegeton" and ending with Venowl's crushing blastbeat-ridden black mass, "Orthodoxy." While the whole thing is over in just under 10 minutes the brutality of it will linger long after the last reverberation. Massively enjoyable, in the red destruction from four awesome artists.
