This is some pretty cool death metal out of Germany. I won't go as far as to say it brings anything new to the table, but I've found myself thinking of Florida-style U.S. death metal as well as Polish-style while listening to this, and Soul Grinder blend the styles very well. I'm mostly reminded of Vader and Cannibal Corpse, it almost feels like the two bands released a split album at times. :) You get that slower, chugging death metal Vader are known for, and that hard-hitting, sharp death metal that Cannibal Corpse are so good at. Many songs are more of a bunch of death metal styles meshed together, sometimes speeding things up quite a bit, but for the most part this is relatively mid-paced as far as death metal goes. The album didn't wow me, but it's just enjoyable to listen to, just quality death metal through and through and when it's over you just want to hear more of the same.
