Trepanation - Grand Maw
After a demo tape and splits with Sabbatic Goat and Spiteful Urinator, Trepanation released a tape only limited to 50 copies in April 2016. On this tape the band showed another face. While on previous releases the band was known for a punishing Black/Death/Grind hybrid, here the A side consist of an ominous Doom/Death track, on the B side the band does two tracks that are influenced by old school industrial (refer to SPK, Throbbing Gristle..., not the beat-driven stuff), though still performed with vocals, bass, guitar and drums. Again, there's an ominous vibe to these tracks, while also invoking an outlandish ritual/tribal atmosphere. This tape shows that the band can pull off much more than what they have been doing in former releases and thus it seemed only logical to re-release this tape. Whether or not the styles executed on this tape will be found in further Trepanation releases is to be seen. Limited to 100 copies.
