Label: Season Of Mist – SOM 281
Released: 19 February 2013
Complete Failure have an excellent grasp of what makes good grind. With flavours of Pig Destroyer, Brutal Truth, and Nasum, yet never quite sounding exactly like any of them, the four-piece are now on their third full-length, and have been punkishly grinding long enough (formed in 2006, drummer Mike Rosswog also did time in Circle of Dead Children and Today is the Day) to make The Art Gospel of Aggravated Assault a short yet sharp shock of fun. The opening bass clunks of Mind Compf are an ominous intro before the guitars and almost tribal percussion enter, a grinding breakdown launching you into the track proper.
