Mindflair - Stagnation

So, MINDFLAIR enter the next round. “Stagnation" is the title of the new short player and just like the previous album “Green Bakery” contains fine Grind shredding. The first tracks raise the question, if the guys turned commercial, because their shit is almost super catchy, but as soon as Moshfred’s perverse vokills join in that thought is shot to pieces. At times he overdoes his hoarse shriek attacks, though, I would rather prefer deeper grunting like a wild boar hoard during a mass orgy.


Well, you can’t have it all. I also miss the intros of the last album, but you can’t have it all… Musically the whole thing has a certain resemblance to REPULSION. The guys grind off like hell, but also add mighty breaks into their wall of sound and even introduce some well-placed tempo changes. I just tried to masturbate along one or two songs, but these breaks made me fail miserably. Well, again, you can’t have it all.


But you can have a fat production and this one has it, hell yes! Next time, though, I would want a few more songs like D.R.I. on "Dealing With It"!!! (Online September 15, 2005)
