When raw gets more raw and then you smash that together with some death/grind metal you get a unique combination that’s hard to master, and yet here’s Theories with their debut album, “Regression”, pulling it off like they’ve been doing it for fucking decades!
This album front to back is a blisteringly fast and brutalizing piece of work that literally comes out from your headphones to punch you in the goddamn face and then send you through the meat grinder. Oh, and then it pisses on what comes out. That’s how heavy and intense “Regression” is in its entirety with the hardcore vocals and guitars just blasting away in each song and practically tearing you a new one every time they bring something else that they didn’t before to the table.
I’ve no doubt that fans of death metal and grind metal can find at least a few things to agree with with this hybrid of those genres because “Regression” has shown that Theories have accomplished what several bands before them have failed: making death/grind metal sound fucking badass and have us shit our pants for the entire ride.
