Strickle webzine

Since 1997, Balatonizer has been chewing up decibels at a feeding frenzy rate. Vulgar-death-grind as described by the band them self suits the sounds on their first full length 'Occlused In Ottusity'. 3 italian maniacs, accompanied by a drum machine, bring 32 songs (yes!) and a video clip titled 'Muscular Prevarication'. Grindcore is beyond the scope of what is about, but i gladly make an exception for Balatonizer. Between vomiting grunts, aborted melodies and battered skulls there's some heavy rhythms and grooves. You'll need a dictionary for the track titles and steel nerves to listen from beginning to end, but it's a nice variation in audio feed for me.
