about

"We return again to the face-smashing realm of grindcore with this next installment. As many of you know, grindcore is a metal genre I obsess over, yet frequently find myself disappointed by the average-to-boring quality of a lot of modern acts who are solely imitative of their predecessors. Since grind seems more often built on beating you senseless than establishing a unique identity, I rarely find new grind bands who wow me. However, there are always a few each year who remind me why I love grind — and Texas-based Amygdala are my current grind obsession.

If I’m remembering correctly, I first heard about Amygdala because the band includes grind drummer extraordinaire Bryan Fajardo (Kill The Client, Phobia, etc.) in their ranks. They are one of the bands within a small, forward-thinking subset of grind doing something truly notable and likely to endure the test of time. The only grind band I’ve heard doing anything even remotely similar to the dissonant and technical savagery of their 2015 EP EPiphany is the Blurring release that dropped this year. EPiphany sounds like what would happen if Baring Teeth played grindcore — wonky stuff that’s several cuts above typical grind.

Releases such as EPiphany are precisely why a lot of modern grind releases don’t impress me. When you hear grind elevated to the artistic plateau that Amygdala reach, well, little else seems as impressive in comparison. At just under 12 minutes, EPiphany is the perfect adrenaline rush and cure for your daily frustrations. It’s high time for grind-time, bitches." - NO CLEAN SINGING

Track Name: Interiora terrae
Burrowing - beneath the earth
Descending - layer by layer
Layer by layer

Skeletal fragments
Forgotten and priceless

Descending…

Remnants of....
Something unspoken
Something once left out of sight
Track Name: YOD
A journey traveling through paths
Set by unorthodox dwellings
Choosing one fork after another
Parallels, parallel

A journey traveling through paths
Set by unorthodox dwellings

To the passable consumption
To waste ritual, ritual…

Parallels, parallel

Doubt is the everlasting principle of hope...

Parallels, parallel

An alternate reality - where visions are certain
Hope is not an equation

In alternate realities - where visions are certain
Hope is not an equation

FORWARD
Track Name: Black vvhole
Dark matters
Most of the time.
Figments of light
Transparent through sight.

I see through you
I see, through you

Thoroughly thought
Intentions are finally sought

I see through you
I see, through you

Dark matters
Most of the time.
Figments of light
Transparent through sight.

It's always in, my head
It is all coming out from my mind

I see through you
I see, through you

Learn the tricks of the illusion of time.
