Editorial Reviews

2010 album from Phoenix, Arizona's Landmine Marathon. Sovereign Descent is a sonic representation of their world: scorched, desolate, and angry as hell. The album was recorded at guitarist Ryan Butler's Arcane Digital Recording Studios, where he's recorded past efforts from the band, as well as Misery Index, Phobia, The Funeral Pyre and many others. The album was mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (Converge, Hatebreed, Dillinger Escape Plan) and features cover art by acclaimed artist Dan Seagrove (entombed, Dismember, Morbid Angel, Suffocation).

Cephalic Carnage. Napalm Death. Bolt Thrower. Carcass. Gods amongst men when it comes to that classic grindcore sound. The legacy there is undeniable. If you want fantastic grind, you go to these bands. Well, get ready to add another name to that exclusive list. Landmine Marathon's new album Sovereign Descent is your daddy's grindcore. There's no modern frills, no fancy production, no real experimentation. Seeing how young this band is, I'm surprised they've captured the old school grind sound so well. I honestly feel as if I'm listening to a tape-traded album.

While the legendary bands have moved forward and innovated their sound, Landmine Marathon sticks true with what was pioneered in the late 80's. I suppose that's what surprises me so much about this band; they forgo so much of the genre's evolution (not to mention the Brutal Truth-esque tendencies that other American grind bands follow) that they sound more like a British grind band from the past. Someone check to see if they travel to gigs in a time machine.

With this being their first album under Prosthetic Records' able wing, they've dropped the Bolt Thrower tributary sound that I found so refreshing on the last album and have found their own niche in the genre. It certainly helps that vocalist Grace Perry is A) a woman and B) awesome at what she does. Her vocals are very ranged, meaning she can hit the required screeches and low gutturals with little effort. They satisfy every grind pre-requisite and yet are so different (again, because of A above) that they forge a path yet unheard. It's breaking new ground and making the genre stretch its definition a bit.

Of course, no self-respecting grindcore outfit would be without a fast and technical drummer. Mike Pohlmeier fills that role nicely.

Honestly knowing Grace's sister is a pop singer didn't give me very high hopes for this band after listening to a couple of tracks on the CD I totally forgot about that. Landmine Marathon is a very faced paced hard hitting and brutal band. The guitar solos are spot on and Grace's vocals are well lets face it she's not the next Angela Gossow but Grace brings an energy and core growl we have come to expect from many female metal singers and does it well. That combination of vocals and rifts brought together make Landmine Marathon a band to watch and listen for when they come to your area.
