Pollen: Mindless

Buy from Sorry State

Well, the new Pollen EP is probably the most extreme, ear-catching record to emerge from the d-beat genre since we were still seeing regular releases from Zyanose and Isterismo. While a lot of super noisy bands really lay on the treble, Pollen go for the opposite approach, blowing out the bottom end in a way that reminds me as much of early Carcass and Napalm Death as it does of Discharge or any of their descendants. Definitely one of the best things going in d-beat right now.
