Convulsively Rotteness
(Iron, Blood And Death Corporation)

Sometimes, when bands do split releases, you get two different musical approaches and two different productions in sound and technique. Also, for the most part, it is always based on a similar ideology or genre. Some almost are alike in sound and with this release from PODRIDÃO and CONVULSIVE, they both have a very similar approach. You can almost at times think it is the same band, but with just slightly different production values. Since both bands hail from Brazil that could be a factor as well. All in all, what you get is heavy INCANTATION worship and also maybe CIANIDE. The production is similar too. I would say that CONVULSIVE is harsher, and a bit more primal in their delivery. There is an evil aura in their sound, and in their image as well. Personally, I lean a bit more toward PODRIDÃO in their overall sound. They have a slight Thrash element to their sound and also you can hear the bass rumble along with the overall riffing. It’s a longer split as well, with both bands submitting 5 songs each and a total run time of about 45 minutes. So it is cool with things being a bit different and you can enjoy it for both what the bands have to offer. One of the better splits I have come across lately. If there is anything I can complain about, I am not a fan of the cover art. Interesting idea but the actual result doesn’t work for me.
