"Existing only for a short time in the early 90s, ATHRENODY, along with bands like IMMORTAL FATE, EXHUMED, GORYMELANOMA and COLOSTOMY created a foundation for the emerging Bay Area grind scene. Back then, rumors were floating around about a band from the South Bay that played a brutal style of grind/death metal not-on-like Harmony Corruption era NAPALM DEATH and/or TERRORIZER - turned out this band was ATHRENODY. They played a few shows, and before they split-up, they managed to get into House of Faith studios to record this full length. Unfortunately vocals were not added, until that is, Matt Harvey from EXHUMED stepped up to the plate in 2005. The result is a CD release on To Live A Lie / 625 Thrashcore / De Rok Records."
AH YES! The Bay Area is known for some top-notch stuff including grindcore. Athrenody may only have one release but they fucking deliver. I honestly can't say that there's not one track on this album that I don't love. This album is just made of pure grind with fucking awesome vocals. It's a shame more grind bands don't sound this way... Dammit.
