Devious Persecution and Wholesale Slaughter
Did you know that P.L.F used to stand for Pretty Little Flower? Me neither. Not the most brutal name a deathgrind band could give itself. But beyond that dainty moniker – since changed to Pulverizing Lethal Force – there ain’t nothing quaint about the Houston, Texas crew or their sixth album ‘Devious Persecution and Wholesale Slaughter’. Indeed, this record hits you like a massive slap in the face right from the off, blasting and grinding its way through 14 tracks of no-nonsense intensity. I don’t have to say much about this record, other than that if songs like ‘Grinder of Fools’ and ‘Dissolution of Human Rights Part 4’ are anything to go by, then P.L.F have got their shit nailed down tight. They have ex-Phobia/Gridlink/Kill the Client drummer Bryan Fajano in their ranks, and he is a beast on the kit behind the rest of the band. It’s fairly short but at fourteen songs averaging a least a minute if not more, there’s plenty of gunpowder in this cannon to lose yourself to. Its a fair bit samey in places but with plenty of shifting between blasting and thrashy riffing it comfortably avoids dropping into stale territory. Wake up and smell the greenery, this is a phenomenal grind bomb, go get yourself some now.
