Gridfailure are a solo project from New York that plays a mixture of experimental, industrial, ambient and dark hardcore and this is a review of his 2016 album "Ensuring the Bloodline Ends here" which will be released in May by The Compound Recs.
Experimental sounds along with some unorthodox musical instruments start off the album and the music also brings in elements of ambient while some ethnic instruments are also utilized at times and the songs also bring in a great amount of field recordings and some of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
At times the music can be very avant garde and some tracks also bring in angry shouting vocals while some tracks also bring in tribal elements and as the album progresses traces of underground industrial can be heard along with later songs bringing in a small amount of harsh power electronics and noises and every song also sounds different from each other and soem of t he vocals bring in the more angry side of hardcore.
Gridfailure plays a musical style that takes industrial, noise, ambient and experimental and mixes them with a touch of hardcore to create a style that is very original and the production also has a very dark sound to it.
In my opinion Gridfailure are a very great sounding mixture of experimental, ambient, industrial and dark hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Shredding The Husk" "Apparitions Revenge" and "Welcoming Pyroclastic Eradication". 8 out of 10.
