LIES & DISTRUST | GRIDE
split 7" EP (1998 Insane Society Records)
Gride, lies and distrust
Both above mentioned bands to
split the 7" vinyl disk with 33 rotations per minute have only waited
to appear on a vinyl sooner or later.
The first side is occupied by Gride from Prachatice, South Bohemia
with five original compositions in 10 minutes. Original crust/grind
riffs spray a genius feeling for the perfect understanding of the
style. A representative material as usual proves a great strength of
Central Bohemia, located Lies & Distrust have a rawer and perhaps more
vivid sound as compared to Gride, with a drowned guttural vocal in the
middle. Less expressive - but equally appealing - hardcore crust is
enriched with an intro or a spoken part.
The lyrical content is basically critical: to uniformity, wasting of
time, racism, false people, consumption (Gride) or fascism, police „protection“, vivisection and music industry (Lies & Distrust). Text inlay provides
translations into four languages, the entire cover and the message of
the release only add up to the overall good impression of the split.
