Too bad post millenial Terrorizer took a wrong turn somewhere after their Pièce de résistance World Downfall and ended up stumbling aimlessly through a mess of banal music that did their earlier endeavours and legacy no justice. However that being said if one was to guestimate what they should of sounded like if they maintained their threshold of awesomness and vibrant tone from 1989 in a modern day grind setting then I would suggest the grind machinations of Infanticide would be affectionatley close to the outcome.
Their 2008 7" Sonic Punishment is appropriately named, with its modernised deployment of fleshy bass tone reminiscent of former Grind upstarts Insect Warfare, immediatley shafted against the distinct Terrorizer guitar riff work, all of which is accompanied by a constant melee of unyielding blast beats and howling savagery that passes for vocals. It works at every level of the playing field, ultimately condensing together for an exceptional powerful and demanding onslaught of grind virility. The session of castigation has a run time of seven and a half minutes long, broken across 10 tracks which all offer their own little boon, but uniformly channel the obstinant fury Infanticide have time and time again brought to the table.
I would be reluctant to call it a test run of their 2010 jackpot From Our Cold Dead Hands, but rather a condensation of what they would later go on to, on this release instead opting for a minute or under runs, quitting the game once terminal grind velocity has been obtained and starting up the malice afresh rather than offer any solid development with the exception of Oblivion Descends. However far reaching development is not part of the game plan, if the release name didn't already give it away the master plan merely consists of all elements chasing for all out barbarity, something these Swedes in particular seem to have a natural talent for.
