Fearless, ferocious and often genuinely terrifying, Full Of Hell (opens in new tab) have become one of the most vital bands on the planet. The band’s fourth full-length lasts a mere 21 minutes, and yet it contains extreme multitudes. Constructed around an amorphous framework of insanely vicious grindcore (opens in new tab), powerviolence and death metal (opens in new tab), the quartet’s enlightened approach to destruction is more vivid than ever on the short, savage likes of Guided Blight and the excoriating Industrial Messiah Complex. More experimental mayhem like Derelict Satellite and Celestial Hierarch confirms FOH’s status as one of heavy music’s most lethally subversive bands. Garden… bristles with righteous contempt for the idiotic world around us.
