For those unfamiliar the band Grimentitiy is a new challenger that’s arrived from Belarus and with the short EP titled To Perfection (also called Promo 2020) have released their first physical album. The band is a trio which features a known name in Pavel Lapkouski on guitars and vocals, you might now him as the bass player in Relics of Humanity or from his past band Stickoxydal. Stickoxydal actually plays a similar style as Grimentitiy (where Pavel did guitars and vocals too) so it’s safe to say that’s something Pavel has built on when founding the band along with Roman Drobishevski (drums) and Nikita Metelskiy (vocals, bass).
Instantly the album begins with some intense instrumental works, soon followed by Pavel’s and Nikita’s vocals which are a great combo. Mixing the brutal death metal and grindcore feeling just perfectly where you can’t help but to think about Dying Fetus. “The Power of Broken” then comes on and what a track! While I thought the opener was a nice introduction where I got to know Grimentitiy they just blow me away with the next one, literally skipping a few bases going straight to the finish line. Ending To Perfection they did a Lock Up cover on the song “Dead Sea Scroll Deception”. Truth be told I think this is better than the original version, it has more power to it and I simply just love the vocals of Grimentitiy.
There isn’t really anything to complain about on To Perfection, only that it’s too short! Less than nine minutes long it still managed to get my blood pumping and I can’t wait to here more from Grimentitiy. They do grindcore just the way I want to to be, with a touch of brutal death in the mix. It’s well executed, done by a trio that knows their shit, well mixed and pays homage to some of the best death/grindcore music you’ve heard. Done by fans of the genre and I’m sure will be loved by fans of the genre!
