Swedish act Slutavverkning are doing something very different from the norm, as their avant-garde release Grisar shows.
By Jane Howkins
Slutavverkning mix elements of lots of genres together, including noise rock and jazz, to make something really unique. Grisar is quite a brutal sounding song, opening with a discordant guitar riff and some harsh vocals. It’s incredibly atmospheric though, really taking you into the band’s world. The rhythm section pulsates in the background, adding a greater texture to the track. It breaks down a little halfway through, introducing a set of menacing sounding guitar riffs and brass motifs, also adding some spoken word vocals. Grisar is extremely experimental, but give it a chance and you may find that you love it!
