Gaza - No Absolutes in Human Suffering | Review

I could not let this year end without writing a few words about one of my favorite records issued in 2012. Besides having a great title, No Absolutes in Human Suffering” by Utah’s grinders Gaza is one of the most intense and violent musical experiences that I have had the pleasure of listening this year. I mean, it’s so downright nasty that it puts most of the current crop of hardcore/grind bands that are trying to sound extreme to shame.
No Absolutes in Human Suffering” is Gaza’s third offering and mines the same territory that acts like Coalesce, Deadguy and Botch have made popular, but with a more grindy edge, which makes the whole experience even more punishing. Their fine blend of noisy grind and challenging hardcore is ridiculously powerful and energetic, but no less mesmerising. Songs like “This We Celebrate” and “When They Beg” can be as complexly heavy as catchy, with the band playing some memorable melodies between angry and twisted riffs.
No Absolutes…” is an outstanding album and you can be assured that only bigger things are to come from these talented fellows.
