I'd say that the mixing here is great because you hear everything. Too bad this band is eternally split-up. I heard some of their earlier material and it didn't grab me as much as this one did. The reason mainly was the production quality. So yeah, 'Inhale/Exhale' would be something that you'd always want in your mix if you're craving extreme metal totally. This is more death metal oriented than it is grindcore. But the focal points were just to put out as extreme as extreme can get. They could've left out the lead guitar and just only had rhythm. Not saying that the lead guitarist was bad at lead, but on grind albums, my preference are just main guitar.
It's hard to tell song from song because it's streaming really fast. There are some letup in songs, but not a whole lot. Most of the songs you'll hear low, deep and thick guitar sounds. A lot of the blasts reflect the heavy tremolo picking kind of like Napalm Death's earlier days. I think that some riffs sound like 'Harmony Corruption', but still are good and brutal. There's no doubt this is total brutal death metal mixed with grind. Somewhat technical, but not too much. Nothing as extreme as like say acts to the likes of Suffocation, Cryptopsy, et al. The majority of the songs are rhythms that are more faster than they are groove or slow.
Actually heard about this album and band from a friend and thought I'd give it a try. First time around, I'm just like to myself: "I can totally immerse and get into this." But that's because I'm into extreme metal. No doubt that I'd have immediate respect for the band. Amazing that they put together so many songs! It's 45 minutes of the extreme stuff. I don't think that the blasting is as fast as Mick Harris was. But yeah at least it gives you a combination of both. Also, this band sounds kind of like old Terrorizer. Mainly off of 'World Downfall', a classic death/grind release. I'd rate this higher if they left out the leads. But still it's solid for sure!
