Mind Pollution - _Spoonfed and True to the Cause_
by: Gino Filicetti (not rated)
This demo comes to us from California's Mind Pollution via, once again, Foundations Forum. The music on this outing starts off with a chunky, grind-filled riff that just grabs your attention and doesn't let you up for air. Mind Pollution seem to walk the fine line between pure grind and toe tapping groove with great expertise and finesse. The first track, "Spoon Fed", establishes this demo above most of the rest showing off a very clear production and musical excellence. The vocals on this demo are definitely the band's weakest attribute, although they aren't completely irritating; they do nothing for the band and their style of brutality. Somehow I don't think that spoken word/cleanly sung vox are appropriate for Mind Pollution. The second track, "True to the Cause", follows much of the same trend set with the first track. The speed on this track slows down compared to "Spoonfed", but the band lose none of their punch. A cleverly executed solo in the middle of this song adds a needed technicality to the demo. Unfortunately, the packaging of this once again bio-less demo is less than spectacular, and for that very reason, it was the last demo that I reviewed, but certainly the best, proving that you can't judge a tape by its cover.
