xhrl_ With Brutal Truth grindcore shifted to an imitation of data overload. Gridlink picks up this mantle by putting many different influences together into a high-speed stream of sound that mocks modern life by flinging at us an extensive lexicon of riffery in minute-songs that never relent from their sad sprint. This rush holds together because the diverse riffs are variations on a not-immediately-visible common thread, delivering a cryptic & melancholy but, ironically, a very satisfying listen. Favorite track: Constant Autumn.

Daniele Consoli I love the production and I love how this sounds like Misery Index meets Lithurgy with a vocals sound I absolutely LOVE.
Have been listening to this daily from bandcamp, HAD TO buy. Favorite track: Ketsui.

Owen W Grindcore that's melodic, technically impressive, and, dare I say it?, catchy. The clean production allows Gridlink's technical prowess to shine through clearly, making for an unrelenting but astounding 22 minutes. The shorter tracks sometimes leave me wanting more, but that's just a testament to how good they are. Favorite track: Look To Windward.

about

The end game, the final unit. The last GRIDLINK record. Recorded over five days in Kyoto, Japan, “Longhena” is a twenty-three minute grindcore opus made real through the emotional ferocity and painstaking calculation of Jon Chang (DISCORDANCE AXIS), Bryan Fajardo (PHOBIA, PLF, KILL THE CLIENT, NOISEAR), Takafumi Matsubara (DISCORDANCE AXIS, HAYAINO DAISUKI) and Teddy Patterson (BURNT BY THE SUN, HUMAN REMAINS, HAYAINO DAISUKI).

Awe-inspiring musicianship, landscapes of shred, atonal and melodic at once, blast-beat hypermania and vocals screamed from the bottom of a personal and illustrated hell. This is the one you’ve been waiting for. The one that makes the body ache.

“Longhena” is for anyone sick with melancholy, and those who wish to obliterate the world with music.

Grind 2.0

Featuring guest vocals from Paul Pavlovich of ASSUCK.
