This was Discordance Axis' final release (barring reissues and the Pikadourei DVD) and damn if it wasn't some of their best material comitted to plastic. Released originally in a DVD case with stunning minimalist artwork by HydraHead, it's been nigh impossible to get since it's release. DA changed formulas somewhat for this CD, opting for longer songs, instead of their 45-second blast-furnace approach of past. Eschewing typical grind lyrics and songwriting, the music on offer is ferociously fast, chaotic, and executed with astounding precision - but comes across sounding more in debt to punk and thrash than anything else. The lyrics are a high point of the record, Jon Chang not writing rediculous gore lyrics for 13-year-olds, and opts to take an almost snapshot-story approach to the writing. Taking inspiration mostly from anime, the lyrics are something to think on (Castration Rite) while he screeches out his fury. With Dave Witte in the drum chair you know you're in for a solid drumming performance, and he doesn't disappoint. The velocity and precision he applies to his drumming is mind boggling - Truly one of the greatest metal drummers alive right now. The guitar work is similar to all DA albums of past, and if you've seen the "tabulature" for the songs on the Pikadourei DVD, you'll get a serious laugh at how they were created. Previous DA albums had a very loose production aiding in the feel that the songs might spin out of control at any given moment and destroy your house; but the band took their time with this release and the more considered approach worked out to their favor - The songs still sounding dangerously close to collapse, but anchored by some intangible thing in the whirlwind of chaos assaulting you. I truly feel this is their finest hour

An essential release from an essential band. No one has sounded like them before and no one ever will.

Fantasic record. And as always, Amazon delivers with fast shipping and with a record in mint condition. I will say though, for those wondering, I thought that all the Record Store Day re-release of this LP were all blue vinyl, but mine is black, so just be aware that there are two versions. Great grind!

The first studio album from New Jersey's Discordance Axis actually owes more to The Dillinger Escape Plan (who, ironically enough, are also from New Jersey), Unsane, and Today Is The Day than traditionally-minded grindcore groups like, say, Napalm Death and Carcass. Constantly shifting through tricky, screwy riffs, whiplash tempo changes (seriously, every song goes through an uncountable number of parts!), and technical, unorthodox breakdowns, "The Inalienable Dreamless" is as much a noisecore-influenced record than anything else.

Every band member is at the top of his game, here, but the star performer is, without a doubt, drummer Dave Witte. His foot speed is so fast that it ultimately comes across sounding like a blackened blur of notes, whereas his dexterity is so fast and frenetic that it pushes the brink of being inhuman. As a result, these seventeen tracks are boiling over with inventive fills, dexterous snare cracking, crashing cymbals, and blast beats that are positively murderous. (And, for those not in the know, the heck of Witte's drumming is that the man churns out blasts using only one foot!)

The record's indisputably biggest highpoints are its epic numbers, tracks fourteen and fifteen, "Jigsaw" and "The Third Children." Both clock in at an uncomfortable two-minutes and change, and are backed by huge, plowing, steamrolling riffs, churning rhythms, and tight cymbal rides. And the subsequent "A Leaden Stride To Nowhere," at four-plus minute-long, is an even bigger whopper of an epic. It boasts oh-so-Seth Putnam-esque screaming, and an astonishingly mid-tempo and restrained pace, thus creating some of the most memorable riffs in Discordance Axis' discography.

This is awesome technical grindcore for fans of Pig Destroyer, Nasum, Brutal Truth and Agoraphobic Nosebleed. Mindblowing stuff!
