Grim Existence – Expansion of Reality [UK, Death / Hardcore] (2019)


F H E D, 6-04-19

Worship bleak existence. This is the second EP from a UK outfit that has taken their time between releases but in reality doesn’t give a shit what you think. The realm of hardcore punk and death metal have a weird little scene when forced in the same jail cell. Grim Existence seems to be coasting on the thin line between both embracing the swirling riffs of death metal with a glacial approach to hardcore’s structure. The result is a mind bending journey into the psyche that is devoid of the morbid themes as well as the interpersonal drama of both styles. While this EP is only two real songs, the presence of both is more than enough to warrant interest if not guarded awareness.
