Snuff - Southland Grindcore Assault (2012)
Snuff is a grindcore band from Los Angeles, California, USA. Musically, they're most comparable to the mid-90s American grind sound of bands like Excruciating Terror, Enemy Soil, Plutocracy, Despise You Suppression, Benümb, etc. There's a definite high level of blistering and crushing heaviness with a healthy background layer of crust/hardcore. Lyrically, there's a little bit of a feeling mimicked from the style of Despise You but less in terms of politics and more violently blunt; that is, crime, violence, gang activity, drug war and overall misery. Although Snuff has been around for a little while, they still do not seem to be that known throughout the scene, so I hope these posts gets them some more deserved recognition. Southland Grindcore Assault is the first full-length CD from the band, which was co-released by Noise Possession and Out For Justice Records.
