Plebian Grandstand - False Highs, True Lows (2016)


French label Throatruiner Records is a festering womb, giving wide births to mired vitriol and dissonant discontent a la a crudely conceived albeit well plucked roster in; Bone Dance, Elizabeth, Birds In Row, Fange, As We Draw, Calvaiire, etc. etc.

Among the legion are Toulouse based, Plebeian Grandstand, hell bent on churning out discordant black metal with a strong basement born hardcore sentimentality rather than the bleak vampiric ilk born in mountains and thawing forests. It hits you hard and it hits you fast and gives little room in way of reprieve, yet still takes a few opportunities to froth the atmosphere to a foaming over, acrid air colliding with a primordial intensity.
This album was released months ago, but I haven't given it enough attention until now, spurring this post, which will be followed by another Throatruiner backed album set to release soon in Fange.
