Exit Wounds - _17 Wounds of Exit_
(No Escape Records, 2007)
by: Quentin Kalis (7.5 out of 10)
I am aware that grindcore by its very nature favours abbreviated songs, but surely seventeen songs in less than ten minutes is taking songwriting brevity to extreme, even absurd lengths? My immediate thoughts are that the length of the songs renders them inadequate, allowing insufficient time for them to develop. However, Exit Wounds appear to have pulled off a DRI in making a CD of some rather entertaining numbers. Although I wouldn't go so far as to say that the hardcore thrashers were a direct influence, there are certain similarities: both have adopted a simple approach to songwriting, utilising a couple of riffs per song, and although lyrics aren't provided, the song titles do suggest a tongue-in-cheek look at socio-political issues. The songs naturally have a touch of hardcore punk. If relentless, hardcore tinged grindcore is your preferred poison and the Ritalin just isn't working, than have a look at this lot.
