Dethbeds, Scientist, Pink Collar, Fatherless 

When: Thu., Oct. 20, 8:30 p.m. 2016
To really settle into Dungeon Scum, the debut 17-minute “full-length” from Chicago’s Dethbeds, you better get comfortable with being flung about and blindsided by shape-shifting rhythms, bulky super-riffs, and trade-off shrill-to-growl grindcore vocals. Reminiscent of early Daughters material, tracks are seamed together with barbed wire, one second sprinting atop a blastbeat, the next hitting a brisk gallop thanks to a triumphant, power-metal-like guitar progression (“Night Ripper”). On a track like “Destroy,” double-kick rolls cycle in and out of the filth as the dudes make the case for being compared to giants of late-90s metalcore like Botch, Deadguy, and Coalesce. And to be fair to the length of the record, there’s enough movement to beat you the hell down, so that you have to take a step back, catch your breath, and lick your wounds before heading back into the melee.
