It'd be easy to put Bulgarian one-man project Coalition of Abnormal Grinders into the too hard basket as it's not absolutely clear where the project fits. What exactly is it? Grindcore? Punk? Hardcore? An actual coalition? So many questions for such a short release.
The first comparison these well-worn ears made was to Japan's Mad Capsule Markets due to the celebration of noise in sheer chaoticness and the vocal style although C.O.AG. have much less in the way of melody and hark back to the rawer hardcore that was coming out in the eighties. The riff to track II is has a surf feel as a Dead Kennedys style guitar is given the grinding treatment. Track V is the aforementioned DK's crossed meeting a black metal band on a motorway and grinding it out as fast as humanly possible.
All ten original tracks have been given Roman numerals and all are strictly business falling under the two minute mark. The cover of Hatebreed's "Defeatist" is the only track given a name and also the longest. This release is well worth checking out.
Listen to this release.
