So, here’s something completely different.
Grindcore with tenor saxophone.
I shit you not. We got an email from Ed, a member of New York’s Heart of Barf, asking that we write a little something on his band.
“We are a grindcore trio in the vein of Pig Destroyer with a hint of Orthrelm,” Ed says. “The catch is, instead of guitar, there’s a saxophone. Saxophone, vox, and drums. Check it out.”
You can check out Heart of Barf at the end of this post, in fact.
I hate to say this, because I love that so many band dudes read this site: I think Heart of Barf don’t need a “catch.”
I feel like they’d be ten times better without the saxophone element, which I found to be grating and rather distracting.
I’m not sure who would be into this, really. The fact that 23 people follow Heart of Barf on Facebook may be some indication of how many people would be into this, though.
Check out Heart of Barf on Bandcamp, and Ed — I want you to take this to heart. The band could be good, but that sax kills it. I know that’s your thing, but…it doesn’t achieve the desired results.
