Violent Restitution - Violent Restitution LP (2012)
Violent Restitution - formally known as Degenerative Myelopathy and now, the album / song title by Razor - are a three-piece grindcore band from Vancouver, B.C., Canada. VR play an incredibly intensive, crushing, pumelling, crust-laden and relentless brand of grind, very much comparable to slightly more modern Americans bands, like Assück, Insect Warfare, Excruciating Terror, Phobia, Noisear, Plutocracy, In Disgust, Warfair?, etc. Lyrically, the band has a prevalent pro-vegan, animal rights and various socio-political themes. Also, VR is female-fronted and has a female guitarist, which is awesome and sadly, not something you see too much of the grind scene these days. Undoubtedly one of the best current grind bands in Canada right now! Here is their first full-length LP, which was released by three different Canadian labels; Mercy Of Slumber Records, Black Banana Records and What Is Making Us Sick Records.
