Plebian Grandstand are a band from France that plays a mixture sludge, crust, grind and hardcore and this is a review of their 2010 album "How Hate Is Hard To Define" which was released by Throatruiner Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine sludge, grind, crust and hardcore together with some dark sounding melodies being thrown in at times with one song having a riff that has a black metal feeling to it and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are a mixture of high pitched sludge screams and growls mixed in with a great amount of hardcore influences, while the lyrics are written in a mixture of French and English and cover hateful themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy and underground feeling to it.
In my opinion Plebian Grandstand are a very great sounding sludge/crust/hardcore hybrid band and if you are a fan of this stylr, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ordo Ab Chao" "Mein Koph Ist Meine Heimut" "Easy To Hate, Hard To Define" and "[...] Or Boring". RECOMMENDED BUY.
