Yacopsae - Tanz, Grosny, Tanz...

Tanz, Grosny, Tanz...
Obscene Productions

by Jason from Deadthyme

Holy crap, Tanz, Grosny, Tanz... is some chaotic, insane, intense grindcore, man. Pure blasting mayhem, yet with a stop-on-a-dime tightness to the playing. I've had some past releases from Yacopsae (which evidently means 'Jakobs', because they didn't want a "silly, brutal name"), but they've really outdone themselves on this. One of the best modern grind albums I've ever heard, yet these guys are virtually unknown. Both Terrorizer and Decibel, two of my three favorite music magazines, did special grindcore issues and neither of them mentioned Yacopsae. It's a pity, really, because this is the shit.
