Grandmother "Family Time"

First of all i would like to start this post by apologizing to my blog friend rasputin of the great Slays For Days for the delay on this one. But you know what they say... better late than never, right?

This time i was gifted with the new release of the band Grandmother. Drinking influences from acts like Man Is The Bastard and Bastard Noise, Grandmother create what they call "sludge-violence", and add some "noise" to that also. The album begins with an authentic hymn to noise, almost if a swarm of bees were attacking a freaking harvester machine. The songs are short but effective as if they were connected between them with some short fuse, exploding one after another. Between those swarms of noise they can still deliver some very catchy punk riffs that combined with this successful formula of power-violence, sludge or hardcore, gives Grandmother a very refreshing and unique sound. This is just a sample of how good this band can grow and it leaves me wondering how destructive this must be live. So next time you have a family meeting, surprise you're whole family by inviting these guys to give a gig. I'm pretty sure they are going to love it. Check this and other goodies at Slays For Days cartel here. Support!
