Some times less is more, and with See Through Negative from cathartic Danish grind hellions Dead Instrument condensing that fire brand grind that charred and sweltered us for 20 minutes of volcanic fury with the Violent Death LP, a reduction in scale from LP to EP is anything but a reduction in hostile activities, no no this is still an all out scorched earth type affair from some of the most hell bent men this side of Christendom. This isn't minimalism or scaling back or proportionality, what See Through Negative is though is black hole style compression with all that tectonic discord, wroth and guile we have seen them unleash before, now rammed into an 8 minute Pandora's box of blistering face melting grind carnage. First to great you is a sweaty and throaty vocal performance coagulated with blood that rolls off with such urgency and thickly slathered venom it may easily be mistaken for a demonic monologue, which I suspect may not to be too far off the truth given no ordinary man should be able to maintain such a rabid ferocity. In tandem to this choleric choral we have a serrated musical projection, cutting quick and deep in a nimble fashion never quite severing the same rhythmic vein more than once, and whilst there is no moment of respite there are those precious fractions of a fraction of a second where a microscopic moment of silence seems like the musicians just might stop brutalising their instruments and begin brutalising one another, such is the intensity of their undertaking.
