Grot - _Sweet Sick-Teen_
by: Paul Schwarz (4 out of 5)
Grot's latest offering is a short collection of pure, fast and brutal grindcore numbers. However, a surprisingly clear production gives this tape an edge, especially over many other demos, with which to kick ass. There are also attempts, some of them successful, to show a new side to this sort of grindcore, something that is too rarely attempted, let alone achieved. Thus black metal tinged riffs sometimes take command, mid-paced groove occasionally plays its part and various other small touches prevent _Sweet Sick-Teen_ from sinking slowly into the already overflowing mire of stagnation. Add a decent sense of humor, covers of Anal Cunt, Sarcophagus and Fallen Christ and a cool outro, and you're left with a very pleasing attempt to do something at least a little individual with the standard grind template.
