Karlrecords - Painkiller - Execution Ground 2xLP

Article number: KR 025LP
Quantity: 3
When Painkiller started in 1991, their first two albums Guts Of A Virgin (1991) and Buried Secrets (1992) on Earache were heavy attacks blending grindcore and free jazz that brought together the musical backgrounds of the three protagonists: drummer Mick Harris had just left grindcore legend Napalm Death, John Zorn explored new extremities with his Naked City project, while Bill Laswell had as a member of roaring free jazz quartet Last Exit (with Peter Brötzmann, Sonny Sharrock, Ronald Shannon Jackson) proven that he was not only a visionary producer, but also an accomplished bassist. But it is their 1994 double album Execution Ground remains the magnum opus of the brilliant trio: Zorn's unmistakable shrieking saxophone, Harris's pounding drums and Laswell's growling sub-bass lines were given heavy mixing treatment, resulting in extended tracks that are no less intense than their early works, but display the full range of the musicians's skills. Avant-jazz, grindcore, dub, and ambient melt into eerie tracks of haunting atmospheres.
