As Bryan said himself, he’s now 36 and still blasting his way through life and not showing any signs of slowing down. Some of these blast beats are atrocious – and I mean that in a good way! In true grindcore style, some of these hits are downright disgusting, the snare is soooo poppy, and I don’t know about you but that sound makes me wanna get smashy! Playing like this for 5 minutes is a test in itself, but when it comes to a whole set, it really takes true stamina. When I used to play drums live I was done in after the first song, and my band were not playing anywhere near this speed, I guess that’s where technique really kicks in. Unlike some grindcore, these tracks are not sloppy either, I’ve seen various grinders playing fast but sounding like a wet floppy piece of cardboard, these dudes and especially Bryan are tight as a nun’s rear end.
If you don’t know P.L.F then get to know them – not the “Palestine Liberation Front” but instead “Pulverizing Lethal Force”; for fans of old school crusty grind with a sprinkle of thrash metal.
Now I’ve watched these videos I’m off to go practice my blast beats until my snare drum is covered in blood.
