Dev/Null - Grind1
Dev/Null - Zombie Sunset
O breakcore, how I love thee. When I'm in the mood, there is no substitute for you. Breakcore is a genre unlike any other. And lucky me, living in the same area as one of my favorite artists, Dev/Null.
Necrobestial Sadobreaks is Dev's latest offering of cut up, fucked up, nasty glitchy electronics. Only this time, the inspiration is metal. FUCK. YES. Count me in.
This album (available on Cock Rock Disco as a free download, do it now) is undeniably awesome. 7 tracks, 16 minutes. 4 of them are really short blasts, lasting only about 40 seconds, and they're numbered "Grind1" through "Grind4." These are some of the best songs on Necro and I'm sure you can guess what they sound like with such names.
The other three tracks are traditional song length (4 to 5 minutes) but are no less brutal. Well, except for "Zombie Sunset." That one kind of shows the sweet side of Dev/Null. It's got this weird spacey/new age stuff going on in the background that sounds like it could be from Ocarina Of Time or something. It's about as melodic and dreamy as breakcore gets. Don't worry, though, it's still unmistakably breakcore and isn't short on ass kicking.
Even if you had to pay for Necrobestial Sadobreaks, I would still highly recommend it. But you don't have to pay for it, it's free. You still should donate at least a couple of bucks through PayPal but either way, this shit is so cool, you have no reason not to listen to it.
