Looking For An Answer: Eterno Treblinka

The first for Relapse Records, Eterno Treblinka is the third album from these Spanish grind monsters, a collection of seventeen short, punishing, no frills, no bullshit songs in thirty one minutes. Opener "Nacir Consumir Moir" is a twenty two second warning of the maniacal offensive that's to come. Prepare yourself. It's flat-out, vicious, and scary stuff that not once lets up. The guitar work is insane, and the drumming equally so. The menacing and tormented vocals in the low growls interspersed with the occasional high-pitched shriek are sheer brute force. The demonic melody that Looking For An Answer pulverise into their own killer brand is uncompromising, grinding madness, and the rancid rage that runs through the wicked grooves is pure sonic pain. The first forty seconds of "Revelacion" has a slow, grooving doom feel before the head-smashing returns in full rage for the remaining fifty three seconds. The two minutes of madness that is "Christianislam" is a crusty grinding beast. And "Running Through The Blood" is possibly the fastest, most aggressive blast on the album. The production allows the album to sound as raw as torn flesh yet still clean but not too polished. The fast, aggressive tunes are intellectually composed rabidity. This is totally psycho, sick and rotten music. If you thought what Wormrot did on Dirge was exceptional, this may well blow them out of the water.

Looking For An Answer: Eterno Treblinka
Posted by Jeff B, SoT Staff Writer on 2011-07-31 07:47:22
My Score:

Hailing from Madrid, Spain is Looking For An Answer - a band that has been making plenty of bone-crushingly brutal grindcore since their formation back in 1999. The band's latest effort, and first for prestigious metal label Relapse Records, is just over thirty minutes of absolutely punishing grindcore filled with fast riffs, technically outstanding musicianship, and an old-school production. Eterno Treblinka pays plenty of homage to grind veterans Terrorizer and Brutal Truth, and it certainly doesn't try to differentiate itself from most grindcore albums out there, but it's a strong effort nonetheless that I've enjoyed hearing.

Eterno Treblinka certainly has some goods to offer - with 17 songs of extremely heavy grindcore, outstanding musicianship (just listen to that guitar and drum work!), and a raw production, calling this effort from Looking For An Answer anything less than a success would be cutting them short. I would've liked a bit more originality and variation in the songwriting department, but this is by-and-large a very solid effort from one of Spain's flagship grind bands. A solid 3 stars seems appropriate here.
