This band was suggested to me about 4 months ago, but I had little free time back then, so I forgot to review it... But well, better late than never. Barren Waste are a 4-piece band from Milford, NH, whose sound can be roughly classified as blackened grindcore/hardcore: "Barren Waste came together in late January of 2011 in response to an unimaginative local metal scene. All four members wanted to make something exciting and have so far done just that. Genre conventions were dropped. Instead the songs dictated where the songs would go. Not only are the usual elements of Death, Black, Thrash, Grindcore, and Hardcore used, but they are coupled with noise, classic rock, and free jazz influences..." Their music is also remarkable for a lot of melodic solos.
