It's not often that I'm in a grindcore mood, so why not show off a band that took their sweet time growing on me: Gridlink.
I've been conscious of the band's latest LP, Orphan, for a few months now. It's twelve tracks that collectively span, yep, twelve freaking minutes. The tracks I've been sampling display a lot of intensity, a lot of speed, and a lot of technical ability, too--you know, like grindcore should. I love how quickly these guys jerk from one idea to the next, too. And they do it so seamlessly!
