Melanocetus Murrayi / Chappa'ai - Split Tape

The return of Melanocetus after six years of inactivity finds them with a changed line-up in half, with a heavier, reverb-heavy sound that sounds more spacey. On the other side, there's Chappa'ai, the noise project of members of the amazing Hungarian grindcore band SxOxTxE and they feature one track of monstrous harshnoise/noisecore with heavy electronic noise, bestial tortured screams from the belly of hell and drum smashing. I've seen both Chappa'ai and SxOxTxE live and they are the absolute business, plus they're great people. Give them a chance, they rock. 2015 tape on Septic Aroma Of Reeking Stench, Autistic Society System Filth-Records, Noise Not War Records, HappyHappyNoiseNoise, and Blastbeat Worship.
