Few albums will ever test your endurance like Orthrelm's OV. No vocals, no bass, just intense — really intense — repetition from guitarist Mick Barr and drummer Josh Blair. In fact, for much of the single-track 45-minute long album, it seems like Barr and Blair are in a three note rut that they simply cannot break out of. But then we hit the 23:39 mark, and the percussion finally changes, and by 19:35, we are 'treated' to an unaccompanied guitar break. The average listener probably won't be able to sit through the whole shebang, but if you do, you should be awarded a prize of some sort. That said, you can bet that most of the '80s-era guitar shredders couldn't keep pace with Barr for this long, without their overpriced, pointy, and signature series instruments falling to pieces — or spraining their fingers. OV is the perfect soundtrack to blast when you want to get revenge on your next-door neighbors.
Take a journey, through the instrumental maze of grindcore.
INSANE, 45:43 minutes of head blowing instrumentals. Just what i've been looking for, a long instrumental that goes psychotic. However, it's not really grindcore, more like Suicidecore. Keep in mind VERY repetitive at points. U will hear certain riffs played for 5-7 minutes. However, if u can stand for 20 minutes of the same 3 riffs then u can get to the rapid changing parts. But enjoy!
sand your brain clean
Completely refreshing album. It's a screaming grinding meditation. Take a long walk and listen, and it'll get all of the gunk out of your head. Super damn good.
