The last I heard of Triac was that Disciples Of Christ split, and for whatever reason it didn't make much of an impression on me. Their three tracks here are far more like it: weighty, cudgel-blow grind that's seemingly informed by noise-rock and uses feedback as both a textural tool and a weapon. Things blast past in the blink of an eye but are strangely memorable despite their brevity - there are actual songs here, and all the brutality in the world can't hide it.

Sacridose are new to me, but have a link to Cellgraft who I was fairly fond of. They're a bit more comprehensible than Cellgraft (a mixed blessing!) and play an intense brand of blurred grindcore, albeit one that's a bit thin at the edges and tends towards the clipped and clicky. The female vocals are genuinely frightening and pretty much do away with the need for the intermittent male belches, shrieking madly as though it were humanity's very last day on earth. Promising stuff, but for my money not nearly as accomplished as their buddies on the other side.
