D.E.R. is one of my favorite grindcore acts and this release comes out the door snarling and raging like a beast freed from his cage. Darker, heavier, malice filled, dangerous.
Favorite track: Raiva.
Unrelenting savage grindcore from Sao Paolo, Brazil. Rancor is a searing barrage of blistering tempos and razor sharp riff carnage, an incisive attack on the barbarity of a ruthless modern world.

Lyrics by Thiago Nascimento
After having discovered Pyrrhon through What Passes for Survival, the immediacy of Growth Without End is startling. A testament to the band's craft, this EP does a marvelous job of lyrically and musically conveying its programmatic, cancerous concept. Charles Anderson
This is a huge progression from Wound Empire in terms of density, emotion, and atmosphere. Abstracter truly found a sound which differentiates them from all the other bands in the genre. The repeating guitar riffs seem boring at first, but once you get into the underlying concept of this record it all adds up. Amazing how much effort these guys put into the design (!) of the album. I can only recommend to take proper time to learn appreciating this masterpiece. Mohemian
