Antigama from Warsaw, Poland and Drugs Of Faith from Virginia, USA team up for a split disc inspired by the Napalm Death / Coalesce split, In Tongues We Speak. Following in the footsteps of that bi-national split of grindcore and hardcore, Selfmadegod Records from Poland is poised to release the Antigama / Drugs Of Faith split 3"CD on an eager world audience.
The three songs representing Antigama's share of the CD are the last ones that the band is issuing before the awaited Relapse debut full-length, Resonance. The quartet turns in two original songs packed full of its trademark sound and a cover of a classic Goblin song.
As for Drugs Of Faith, this power trio delivers three new tracks that offer a taste of what the upcoming full-length on Selfmadegod may sound like. The band has new surprises up its sleeve, having churned out spanking new material for this team up with Antigama that takes its sound further down the road hinted at with the self-titled mini-album, both musically and lyrically.
Not content to have two bands from the same obvious genres or sharing the same influences go head to head on a split, as often happens, Antigama and Drugs Of Faith's individual sounds play against each other, resulting in a jolt for the listener as the tracks alternate between the two bands on Selfmadegod's latest release. The split 3"CD should be a must for fans of either or both groups. An old hand at steering grindcore in the studio, Szymon Czech (Nyia, Third Degree, Antigama), has mastered this double-barrel disc.
