As you know by now I a huge admirer of HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH. I got in touch with Mike the drummer of HOD and I ordered 2 copies of this split tape and a shirt and he charged me 10 Euros!!! First I thought he made a mistake when he converted the total cost including shipping to Germany into Euros. Everybody over here knows that 10 Euros for a shirt, 2 tapes and oversea shipping a almost like getting a gift. Generally I have to pay almost 10 Euros for shipping when I order an Lp from the states. So I asked him if he´s sure about the total in Euros. He was and I was so very happy about the price. Thanks Mike!! This release is limited to 50 Cd - and 50 tape copies.
Okay back to the music. First off I have to tell you that this file only contains the songs from the HOD side of the tape. I don´t dig the POMIV sound at all. Justin from HOD is also playing guitar in POMIV but I can´t stand their style anyway. I just can´t stand gore grind w/ down tuned gutteral vocals (I guess that what those vocals are called nowadays...).
It doesn´t bother me because the HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH songs on this tape are so fucking outstanding. Do you wanna know what speed is? This is like a tornado!! Fast as hell and over shortly after it came by!! And like a real tornado it destroys everything in it´s way!! Everything´s on point like a swiss clockwork and well produced. Bingo, it would have been perfect if it have been longer. It´s marginal longer than 3 minutes!!! Before Chris digitized the tape for me (thx bro) I heard the HOD side and rewinded it over and over again. Mike wrote to me that there will be a discography tape very soon an a new full lenght Lp / Cd out in May / June. So stay on alert and have fun with this short appetizer before the next storm!!
Thx Mike for the stuff an the admission to upload the tape here!
