Antigama – Meteor (2013)

Antigama are a very special grindcore band, in that I don’t really believe that they play grindcore at all. I mean sure, their music has roots of chaotic grind elements, and the vocalist’s roar is reminiscent of Napalm Death’s Barney Greenway, but Antigama draw from all over the musical spectrum. You can probably tell from the record sleeves that this isn’t just another grindcore band, and to the un-initiated, I would describe Meteor as a clusterfuck of jazz and mathcore stylings, but with a brutality that lies in the worlds of death and grind to counteract this. Is this…. prog-grind? Whatever it is, it is brilliant. Like Brutal Truth lost in space forever, but with lots of drugs and jazz records to keep them company.
