Smashing Dumplings – Side Effects (2017)

Ok, so Smashing Dumplings sound a whole lot more death metal than when I saw them live four or five years ago. I mean, either they’ve given their sound a bit of a more ‘brutal’ overhaul in lieu of spazzy, fast grind, or my memory is terrible and I’m just an idiot. Either way, Side Effects is pretty fuckin’ great. Chunky, nasty death metal that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
