Tolosian plebs and long-time-no-see swiss cross their swords on this exclusive 10" split, each band carving their grooves with an unique twelve minute-long track.

On tail side, PLEBEIAN GRANDSTAND confirms their hegemony in terms of frightening chaos : the ghostly "I.W.W.O.Y.T.W.Y.W.O.M" starts like a long and punishing funeral procession, just before the thunder strikes the cortege. Becoming less hardcore-oriented and more experimental - while always sustaining a rare intensity, the band leaves their comfort zone with this hypnotic track swinging between sludge/drone and black metal.

Heads, after seven years of silence and a full-length "Initial" that left a deep impression, "A.F.D.N.T.E.D.E.V.L.S." marks the comeback of CORTEZ's acrid and corrosive noisecore. Still bass-less, still as harsh as ever, the swiss trio delivers a massive piece filled with a nearly luminous imperial slowness. An opportunity to check that the band hasn't lost its touch, entangling crushed rhythms and powerful emotional discharges.

Co-production Throatruiner (FR), Basement Apes (FR), Get A Life! (CH).
