This is a review of a split between Belgium's Nervous Mothers and Art Of Burning Water which was released by Superfi Records and we will start off the review with Nervous Mothers a band that plays a mixture of emo, crust, grind and sludge.
Their side of the split starts out with a very guitar sound along with some spoken word parts and drum b eats a few seconds later and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording as well as a touch of emo before going into a very fast grindcore direction that uses high pitched screams and brutal blast beats and the slow riffs also add in melodies and elements of sludge, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Nervous Mothers are a very great sounding mixture of emo, crust, grind and sludge and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Born".
Next up is Art Of Burning Water a band that plays noise rock.
Their side of the split starts out with distorted amp noises along with some drum beats and bass guitars a few seconds later before going into a heavier direction t hat utilizes high pitched screams and the drums also speed up a little bit at times and the music goes for more of a noise rock and hardcore style while also being slow and heavy, the production on their side of t he recording sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover angry themes.
In my opinion Art of Burning Water are a very great sounding mixture of nois rock and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band.
In conclusion i feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of sludge, grind, crust, noise and hardcore. 8 out of 10.
