Unyielding Love announce the vinyl release of The Sweat of Augury – the unbelievable debut EP/mini album from Belfast – Northern Ireland-based blackened noisegrind slaughterers Unyielding Love, which, upon its initial release on tape/digital in September 2016, made heads turn with its mindless and cataclysmic alloy of incredibly savage blackened grindcore and festering harsh noise.
When Decibel Magazine (click HERE to read their feature) first encountered the scathing and torturous sonic depravity of The Sweat of Augury they stated the band “have blasted so hard towards the realm of harsh noise that their song structures are framed around icepick feedback and a layer of pedal abuse that makes it seem like every song they are playing is the last they’ll manage before their equipment disintegrates”, and then further exclaiming that Unyielding Love are “a goddamn nightmare of grind and discord that may have a few of you shitting teeth”. Later, CVLT Nation went to to elect it as one of the best grindcore albums of 2016.
It comes as no surprise that anyone who is first exposed to this band’s skin-peeling music remains completely baffled and speechless in front of the enormous amount of violence and senseless antagonism that bleeds out of Unyielding Love’s crazed homicidal songs. Blending grindcore, black metal, noise and power electronics in a firestorm of abhorrent sonic chaos, Unyielding Love have perfectly bridged the gap between the aesthetics of bands like Full of Hell (for whom Unyielding Love will open all upcoming UK dates), Column of Heaven, Discordance Axis, (early) Knelt Rote, Sutekh Hexen, and Gnaw Their Tongues, creating something so heinous and sonically wretched that the human brain will ever only partially be able to fully grasp the full extent of this band’s immeasurable madness and vision.
