"Mirrors" (Prosthetic Records; 2021)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Jesus Christ. What the hell is this? I mean, you know you're getting something extreme from a band named Pupil Slicer, but "Mirrors" is an off-the-rails collection of mayhem and noise: Out-of-control guitars, chaotic rhythm and vocals that sound like someone recorded the final screams of a murder victim.

According to a review I found online, "Mirrors" is "mixture of mathcore and grindcore." On their Facebook page, the band calls their debut "mathcore/deathgrind/powerviolence." Frankly, I don't know what the fuck it is, but that's half the beauty of it. I've never heard anything like Pupil Slicer before.

 "Mirrors" is definitely not for the meek but those brave enough to make it through will later relish the journey. It may make you nauseous, it may make your ears hurt, but one thing's for certain: You'll keep listening. Because you have no idea what's coming next and you can't wait to find out. It's one wild, , tumultuous and insane ride.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
