Raw and primitive guitar sound, old school feeling, insane guitar solos coming from the '80s death metal era, three chord riffs and D-beat for the fast parts, metal edged guitar works for the slower and emotional and echo-ed shouted vocals. This is Metachrist from Canada who revive the '80's UK crust in their Final Bloody Master 5 track cassette. Many classic '80's and early '90's crust (and D-beat crust as well) bands are mentioned as their influences and the band managed to deliver an alloy that reeks crust stench. Final Bloody Master delivers 2 fast and 3 mid-paced emotional tracks and 17 minutes of old school stenchcore crust. This is filthy, sick and raw the way should be and comes in home dubbed onto blank factory tapes with photocopied j-card. Cassettes are available from the band, available also in bandcamp

Hailing from Galway, Ireland, Mongrel is a new band who released their first ep a few months ago. The ep is available in digital format but didn't see anything about physical copies. The band is connected with the crust punks Subordinate and next month they are going to tour in Scandinavia.
Music wise, Mongrel deliver noisy hardcore punk with distorted, fuzzy guitar sound with crust punk edge and speed changes from fast D-beat to sick and emotional slower parts and desperate shrieking vocals drown in echo/reverb. Do these sound interesting? Yes, Mongrel manage to deliver some decent noise beyond the formalic stantards, keeping the basics and adding elements to make the whole shit more interesting but the same time keeping the heaviness and intensity. Well done lads!
