Agathocles / Repulsione – Split 7″ (2008)

This is Agathocles’ split with Italian fastcore band Repulsione, released in 2008 as a co-release between the excellent Grind Block Records and ¡ZAS! Autoproduzioni. Limited to 500 copies on black wax.

Another great Agathocles release, I’m not entirely sure if these songs are originals or not but they are not of the “what appears on 95% of splits” stock. Sound is raw as per usual, but great tunes. Repulsione, who feature members of 2 Minuta Dreka (also the label is run by Jack Off, the vocalist for 2 Minuta Dreka), play fast, almost powervoilence-esque grind, a whole world away from the groovy sound of 2 Minuta Dreka. If I’m honest the production is a bit muddy but do not let that put you off.
