Streptococcus Pyogenes & Infester - Split Tape (2010)
Streptococcus Pyogenes is from Athens, Greece and Infester is from Arkansas, USA. Both are one-man bands and both play pathological goregrind. Major influences and musical comparisons are more or less the same between the two; classic goregrind masters like Carcass, Dead Infection, Regurgitate, Last Days Of Humanity, Necrony, Pathologist, Ulcerous Phlegm, etc. Newer goregrind bands that come to mind in terms of influences and similarities would Autophagia, Dysmenorrheic Hemorrhage, Feculent Goretomb, Lymphatic Phlegm, Oxidised Razor, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Scatologic Madness Possession, Mixomatosis, etc.
The only significant differences between these bands is that SxPx takes considerably more influence from crust / hardcore punk, while Infester takes a little bit more of a death metal tone to their noise. Absolutely disgusting, pulverizing, noisy, crusty, filthy, chaotic, vomitous old-school goregrind delivered from both bands wo are undoubtedly some of the best in the current scene and surely, of all time! This split was released by Nick from Streptococcus Pyogenes with very limited numbers and has been sold out for some time.
