Roadside Burial and Corpsickle Split Review

by Matt Hensch

Grind has always been a powerful genre in the metal underground. Grind is considered to be a simple, yet powerful form of music. Two bands that recently came together to make a split, Roadside Burial and Corpsickle, are great examples of what the metal underground has to offer. These two bands are young and strong, and their split shows their strength.

The first eight tracks contain the onslaught of Roadside Burial, and these songs are the highlight of this split. Roadside Burial's mixture of riffs, vocals, samples, and sound variation add up to make this side the best. The vocals by singer Karkuss are ruthless and strong. The samples are really damn funny if you appreciate some good old fashioned drug jokes. Either way, these guys rule.

The Corpsickle section of this split is good, but not as good the Roadside Burial part. The production on the Corpsickle section is way too muddy and hard to hear. Their are some good aspects of Corpsickle though. Singer Zombie of Necrophilia uses some decent death growls and the guitar is pretty good too.

This split is pretty good. Get it if you like grind.

You might need 3 riffs to write a 3 minute rock song. Youd probably need 6-10 for a 60 to 90 second grind song. Refer to Pig Destroyer.

Haha cheers. I totally disagree with you saying grind is a simple form of music though. At the very least the drums are amazing (Rotten Sound and Damaged), the vocal style (midrange yells a la Splitter and Nasum not to mention the insanity of Cephalic Carnage and Damaged) every single aspect of the music Cephalic Carnage and Dillinger Escape Plan play are far from simple. CRAPPY grind (ie: gore) is simple. Good grindcore is complex in all facets. Roadside play old school gore grind - theyre from the past style wise. Grind evolves. The new school
