Connor Benson Jeez...I haven't even heard the whole album and I'm completely blown away. One could even say I've been POUNDed away to blissful nothing. Favorite track: x_--_+_--_x_--.+_--_x_--+_--.

Syncretist I love this album. it brings together so many different elements seamlessly, it is at different times: ferociously heavy, technical, groovey, and most importantly fun. infact I don't think I've ever heard an album this heavy that still feels fun. and thanks to the grand mixture of sludge, grind, d beat, hardcore and tech, they could tour with a massive number of bands in a variety of scenes and fit in well, which I really hope they do. thumbs up! Favorite track: x-_-x-_.+._-.

Brett Arnold Pound features everything that makes mathcore fascinating with nothing else to distract. Angular polyrhythmic riffs meld into massive grooves, with no vocals or even interludes. These two guys play oddball instruments with staggering technicality. The 9-string guitar switches from janky high-pitched squeals to seismic lows, and the conjoined drumkit busts out jazzy fills on the toms and chinas before using a 3-foot bass drum and crash cymbals to deliver a "pounding" conclusion. Catch them live. Favorite track: x..^..x-x..^..x-x..^..x-x..^..x-.

about

"Off-kilter time signatures collide with unshakeable grooves while skronky, dissonant chords match up with an almost post-hardcore melodic sensibility. It’s as if Meshuggah, Botch, and Coalesce teamed up to form a new band that pushed the boundaries of each far beyond anything they’ve ever attempted before." - MetalSucks www.metalsucks.net/2019/03/20/video-premiere-pound-get-skronky-and-groovy-in-double-feature-premiere/

"The immortal paragons of punk and metal, though often ideologically immiscible, ceaselessly collide year after year to form uncanny alliances and new combinations. Though these odd mixtures typically incorporate subgenres of metal that already offer themselves toward the primal unruliness and unglamorous severity of punk (such as crossover thrash, grindcore, grunge, etc.), there are rare instances of more avant-garde interpretations of both genres coming together to form truly unprecedented emulsions. One such example is Seattle’s forward-thinking yet ferociously primordial math-grind duo Pound." - Invisible Oranges www.invisibleoranges.com/pound-premiere/

"A variety of techniques converge here; amongst the mayhem can be found Meshuggah chugging and a coming together of crust punk and jazzy rhythms that calls to mind the likes of Botch and Coalesce. This is a form of metal that’s unencumbered by so-called genre boundaries, borrowing from multiple styles yet still offering an experience that’s direct and pulls no punches." - Astral Noize astralnoizeuk.com/2019/04/29/review-pound/
