grindcore, death metal, thrash
CONSTANT VULSE is a grindcore four-piece that comes from Trier, Germany. The band was founded in the last days of 2011, their debut EP "Hedonic Sleepwalkers" was released just about a year later. It's available on CD and Tape through WOOAAARGH and Hackebeil Records. The band shared the stage with bands such as Catheter, FUBAR, Blockheads, Streetwalker, Warfuck and tons of other bands.
CV's music is not the easiest to describe due to it having such an amount of variation from a song to another. The soundscape is more akin to death metal with its heavy but sharp drum-sounds and the string instruments' focus on the low-end, and the compositions feature quite a bit of fairly technical shredding a'la modern brutal death metal. On the other hand there's a lot of pure hardcore punk in the riffs and drum fills, too, and the grunted and screamed vocals and the fastest and simplest grind-bits bow towards the pioneers of grindcore. The lyrics (of which only some snippets are included in the booklet) are all about equality and hate against corruption, and have a prominent theme of "fight the power" similar to the most outspoken punk-bands.
