F.A.T.O. & Karma Jawless - Split EP (2005)
F.A.T.O. were a mincecore / thrashcore band from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. Formed around the early 2000s and broke-up in 2009 after the tragic death of their bassist, founding member and all around amazing human being, Michael Majewski. During their existence as a band, local and occasional out-of-town gigs were a regular event but as far as I know, they didn't tour or play shows that weren't in relative driving distance. Their sound is kind of unique; firstly, because they were only bass-drums-vocals until they got a guitarist for gigs in their final couple years and secondly, it incorporates a lot of normally not 'mashed together' styles (aside from mincecore and thrashcore, there were some obvious speed metal and slight death metal hints to the tunes. Lyrics are mostly about stupid funny shit, but that was to be expected by you after glancing at the cover(s), yes?
Karma Jawless is the other band on this split and I don't know anything about them other than that their from Lithuania. Never bothered listening to the Karma Jawless side because the song titles hinted that lyrically, they share common misogynistic idiocy with pornogrind - and thus, got turned off entirely. They may be decent musically though, give it a listen if you have the patience.
Here's a split CD-R between the two bands, "Live Terror" and "Demo #1/Split Live Tape". Be aware that this is ALL live material.
