Child - Meditations in Filth

Apparently the Swedish welfare state provides enough occasions. to make extreme music. The latest evidence is Child from Stockholm/Gothenburg. Take it or leave it. As I mentioned on the news-page, their songs are like a raging bulldozer at Formula 1 speed. They don't reinvent Death- and Grindcore, they just mix it up differently from song to song, once with more Metal, a bit of Hardcore, D-Beat, Blastbeats, and after 2 minutes enough is said. Grindcore that isn't boring and unpredictable has become very rare since the Disfear split-off. The brutality and production is basically 11/10, the songs are at times more complex than some self-proclaimed Prog Rock bands and they just blow your mind. This band has to be an absolutely killer on stage. The record will be released on February 17th 2023 via EAT Heavy Records and it is an absolute must have for everyone who likes it short, brutal, fast and varied.


We are not in school anymore so let us find a relation for a rating. Each and every Motörhead record is different. So "Meditations in Filth" deserves an "Inferno", not because there is a Swedish drummer playing on this record.

"Inferno" is given for a precision in timing and songwriting, a capture of live sound and energy and a perfect artwork.
