"Diagnosis: Grindcore": a title that says already very much about the second album of these 4 breackneck speed lovers called Amoclen. Coming from Czech Republic, Amoclen were born in 2006 and, two years later, had the honour to release a split along with Agathocles (a band whose absurd prolificity remain, for me, an absolute mistery!). Instead, in 2011 they managed to release their first album, "Cymbalta", and, after 7 years of discographic silence, they are back to infest our minds with a new auditory torture whose (new and old) tracks are (almost) all titled after a medicine. But it's a very very pleasant auditory torture, I must say!
