Collision are a Grindcore band from the Netherlands and The Rotted are a Crust-influenced Death Metal band from the UK.
This is a short split at just over 6 minutes in length that shows off what both bands can do, so let’s see what we have here.
Collision have two songs. The sound is raw and brutal, with serrated vocals screaming and shouting out over speedy Grind. Both tracks are a fast and furious blend of Hardcore-influenced Grind and angry outbursts.
Both are good songs that have plenty of blastbeats mixed with moments of heavier restraint. The riffs are solid and the band seem to be having a blast.
I’m sold. Bring on The Rotted!
After Collision’s barrage of ferocity The Rotted pound out Rotted Fucking Earth which is a d-beat Punk-esque song with a good sound.
It has a drunken swagger and an aggressive temperament; it’s probably not something you want to mess with.
Simple-but-effective songwriting is powered by decent riffs and pure attitude. As Metal songs go it’s a veritable anthem.
Short but oh so sweet, this is a worthy split to add to your collection.
