Enslaved SLAVE-03; 1998. CrustCore fest ft. 7 tracks by Preston’s STATE OF FILTH plus 6x SLAIN from Aberdeen (Scotland).
A split ep with two obscure bands from United Kingdom. I know only a few about State of Filth, they were from Preston Lancashire and they released this split w Slain and the split cdr w Anarchy Spanky plus some contributions in compilations such as The Boredom And The Bullshit 7″ (1996, Refusenik Rec.s w Manfat, One by One and others) and More Noise By Nice Boys 7″ (1997,Existence Decay ., Insane Society Rec.s). I know absolutely nothing about Slain, all i know is they were from Aberdeen, if you can add some information about both bands please drop a line,
This split came out in 1998 on Enslaved Records and Smack in the Mouth Records, it comes in gatefold cover with lyrics for both bands but unfortunately there is no any other info. The way Slain lyrics are printed gives false picture of track list but the vocals are clear enough so you can understand whats going on. There are thirteen tracks that hardly last over a minute each (11 minutes total running time), music wise this is a crazy blending of hardcore and grindcore : Slain deliver crazy hardcore with hyperspeed outbreaks and insane male/female vocals while State of Filth are more heavier and sometimes they touch the grind fields.
