1. THE HARVEST
|After a very brief
prelude, the first detonation of sound announces the welcome return of Snub as the tight guitars, drums and vocals smash their way across
anyone in the vicinity with all the subtly of a bar-stool being shattered over your head.
The Harvest and Six Deep are the bread and butter of the Snub sound. Classic chugging guitars and slamming drums that hammer upon your chest a rhythm of pure aggravation. Choff's angry shouting is an inconceivably destructive sound and you can hear his vocal cords tearing as the message is dispatched. This is metalcore explained the Snub way, the brutal chiselling of sound as though it was a piece of granite just waiting for a song to be beaten into it. And then from nowhere comes a sparkling passage of guitar meandering in The Subtle Art Of Slaughtering A Dream that is placed as a pathway into yet more savagery from the chanting mantra of Flowers Of Flesh & Blood.
This EP spans a period of song writing from Dec 99 to Dec 01, providing a bridge of pre-reformation work and bringing the band right up to date. Since the threat of this band becoming extinct last year, this EP is what everyone who enjoys aggressive heavy music has been waiting for. As it says on the sleeve notes, Snub are back to inherit what is theirs and no-one is arguing!
