R. Blum I came to this in love with Kruelty already and their tracks do not disappoint one bit. So heavy and brutal it makes me feel like I’m levitating in my car. The TN side is soul crushing and I wasn’t familiar with them before, but I completely love their tracks, especially Sacrificial Capital. Also really cool they both did guest vocals on a track. Awesome split. Favorite track: Kruelty - Suppression.

Kyle A level of brutality that should be illegal. The Kruelty tracks are especially killer; they go straight for the throat and don't lighten their grip at all. Favorite track: Kruelty - Suppression.

The Eye Is You Sick split and heavy as fuck. The TN boys excel in the pummeling riffage but really shine when they slow the fuck down. Add some sweet lung pukes and fancy well executed gang vocals to ice the cake on these bangers. Was not familiar with Kruelty but was instantly sold on their brand of crushingly heavy tones n riffage. Japans scene must be explored beyond its sushi!!

about

The 2nd split release of the year from 20 Buck Spin sees the return of Terminal Nation for the first time since the crushing ‘Holocene Extinction’ LP released in the bleak pandemic Summer of 2020. Joining them on the split is Japan’s ultra heavy kingpins Kruelty, fresh off tour dates in both the U.S. and Europe after releasing the furious ‘A Dying Truth’ and ‘Immortal Nightmare’ in 2020.

Reinforcing the fact of being one of the heaviest bands on the planet, Terminal Nation offer three new tracks on the A side, declaring all out war on the imperial masters pulling the world’s strings. The darkness of Death Metal and Bolt Thrower’s tank march matched with the ferocious power of the Hardcore breakdown, the songs are teeming with a nation’s rage on the brink of boiling over into full blown chaos.

Kruelty similarly have found the sweet spot where Hardcore meets old school steamrolling Death and Doom Metal. “Suppression” and “Under Your Pressure” reveal some of the bands most punishing, structure-leveling riffs and bloodied beatdowns to date.

Additionally each vocalist from Terminal Nation and Kruelty also appear with guest vocals on a track from the other with Tatami of Kruelty appearing on Terminal Nation’s ‘Sacrificial Capital’ and Stan of Terminal Nation appearing on Kruelty’s ‘Under Your Pressure’. Heaviest split of 2022? Easily…
