If doom ain't your thing and you need a bit more adrenaline (and a healthy dose of filth) in your life, then look no further than Moro Moro Land's latest EP Through. I’m still sitting here trying to process the glorious insanity that my ears have consumed 3 times in the last few hours.
One thing I know for sure: this is blackened hardcore/crust as it should be. Meaty, sludgey rhythms, blistering tremolos, breakneck blast-beats, all solidified behind a vocalist with far more range than he may initially lead on. Vicious, passionate, and unrelenting, but at times atmospheric and melancholic, Through is a 20-minute hellride of Russian angst. Not to mention an incredible rendition of Nirvana's "Something in the Way" to bring you to your knees and leave you wanting for more.
For fans of: Young and in the Way, Hierophant, The Secret.
