DEMISOR (Singapore) / C.S.S.O. (Japan)
Split Tape 1999
No Action Taken
This split release is made available again by Malaysian indie/hardcore label, No Action Taken after originally released as a split 7" EP. It does not only contain the songs on that Ep but with few extra tracks. Few ? 10 of them here ! But 10 grindcore songs will only take couple of minutes but for the fans of this style will cheer hearing this. Funny though, this tape starts with intro, an excerpt taken from Daraemon (Japanese cartoon show) on DEMISOR side. DEMISOR are more grindcore now than their previous release, a split demo with NECROTIC CHAOS and more techical in Intrusion Of Dark Journey compilation. More death metal back then. They presented 12 grind with some punks influenced tracks. On the other side, feature another famous act in this genre, C.S.S.O. Having heard the name since the early day of my involvement in the underground, only now I have the chance to listen to their songs and know what C.S.S.O. means (Clotted Symmetrical Sexual Organ). Some weird sound can be heard in their songs, maybe the sound of the guitar and they presented 18 tracks with songs circulating around 13 to 58 seconds. No track title given, only titled as "Song #1", "Song #2" and so on. I rarely accepted this kind of muisc but occasionally once a while there will be a release that attract me and this is few of them. Afterall in comes in professionally printed tape, glossy cover with the price of RM 7 !
DEMISOR (Singapore) /
EXTREME DECAY (Indonesia)
Grin-Konrr Records, 2000
I don't know how many split releases DEMISOR have made so far. Plenty, I am
sure of it, and same goes to EXTREME DECAY. DEMISOR opens with 8 tracks of
grind/death. Not much of difference with their previous split. Double
vocals, one growl and the other one screams. EXTREME DECAY'S side features
12 grindcore songs including 1 DEMISOR (!) cover. Their sound is much
better. Their side is much more interesting perhaps because of the sound.
Old Napalm Death and grind fans should obtain this cheap price tape. The
tape comes with glossy printed cover with band's logo, pic and short bio.
