Slund - If You're Angry And You Know It, Clap Your Hands EP (2018)

So here's another great release by Slund. Even though this blasts by in under 12 minutes, this is definitely worth your time. For those unfamiliar, Slund is a one man project that combines Doom, Sludge, and Grind in a cacophony of bludgeoning riffs and high speed violence. Slund's recent release "If You're Angry And You Know It, Clap Your Hands" sees the band stripping away most of its Doom trappings, and mainly retaining the sludge aspect for the sake of deep grooves. If anything I feel like this release has more of a power violence feel to it (call it grindviolence or whatever, sometimes labels just become redundant at a certain point), at least compared to the previous albums. The samples on this release between tracks are fan fucking tastic. They definitely add a sense of cynicism and humor to the tracks for sure. This EP is fucking awesome, so if you're already a fan of Slund, I don't really need to convince you to listen to it or whatever, because you probably have. However if you're a newbie to the band, this might be a good place to start, and just work your way back archaeologically. Quick, Brutal, and Straight to The Point, Slund decimates with this  enjoyable Sludge/Grind offering. Highly Recommended! Cheers! -Samir
