Unrest - Grindcore

Unrest is a three piece band consisting of  Brooks Wilson, Chris Grigg, Steve Jansson. Genre described as Grindcore. Band origin Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Grindcore album released on March 24, 2015 through Unspeakable Axe Records. It has been several weeks now since I began to explore this release. The brutality levels are set to maximum. The speed and sheer adrenaline of their music is evident in each and every song. If you blink once you might miss a few. Songs like, You Take, Consumption and Protest Culture are among my favorites. In terms of production, the quality is very good. Heavy crunchy guitar tones and solid drum sound comes across very devastating. The lyrics are anti corporation and social unrest which fit perfect with the style being projected. False Brotherhood, Identity in the Internet Age and Protest Culture touch on those issues. If anyone wonders about the title of the album it is a safe bet to say they deliver just that "Grindcore". 

In conclusion, an intense and crushing ride. No dull moments and the album lives up to its title. Recommended for fans of Braindrill, Brutal Truth, Phobia, Agnostic Front and Degenerhate.
