Impulse Noise – Stress (2018)

On Stress, Impulse Noise play intense, frenetic grindcore with a thick and disgusting sound. Like, this shit is really firing on all cylinders. Firstly, the production is fantastic. The drumming is just absolutely insane. The bass, clanking away like some sort of mechanical nightmare, underpins everything and gives the proceedings such a genuine heaviness and weight to it. The guitar seems a bit drowned out at first, but it’s there, hammering away. Vocally, the band deliver with rabid barks and growls, like Kevin Sharp gargling salt water. This shit is great.
