Greg Majewski With most of its members spread across the US and guitarist Takafumi Matsubara in another country entirely, it was only a matter of time until Gridlink would call it quits. But what a hell of a swansong Longhena is; a blistering 21 minutes of intensity almost twice as long as either of the band’s previous two LPs that somehow has more riffs and blasts per second than either of its predecessors.

JAH Instant classic. Fantastic playing, beautiful, interesting guitar tone and the same epic, this-is-the-end intensity as The Inalienable Dreamless. Favorite track: Constant Autumn.

about

I remember when we were in love/but time has taken that from us...

The end game, the final unit. The last Gridlink record. Recorded over five days in Kyoto, Japan, ‘Longhena,’ is a twenty-three minute grindcore opus made real through the emotional ferocity and painstaking calculation of Jon Chang (Discordance Axis), Bryan Fajardo (Phobia, PLF), Takafumi Matsubara (Discordance Axis, Hayaino Daisuki) and Teddy Patterson (Burnt by the Sun, Human Remains, Hayaino Daisuki).

Awe-inspiring musicianship, landscapes of shred, atonal and melodic at once, blast-beat hyper-mania and vocals screamed from the bottom of a personal and illustrated hell. This is the one you’ve been waiting for. The one that makes the body ache.

‘Longhena,’ is for anyone sick with melancholy, and those who wish to obliterate the world with music.

I have the pictures of who we once were, that life is over.

Grind 2.0.

Featuring guest vocals from Paul Pavlovich of Assück.
