When SLUMP slows down they are truly terrifying, and when they speed up it might be best to step aside. There is a ferocity in the vocals often missing from filthy modern hardcore - it's easy to sound mean but sounding insane and desperate is something entirely different. "Nein, Kein Gott Da" is my choice track, 90 seconds of a building storm followed by a swirling crescendo into the eye of madness to close the track. After this 2009 demo there was a split with LIFE ENDS, and since then....silence unless you live in Germany and get to witness this freight train in person. SLUMP are from Mannheim, I bought a stack of Neue Deutsche Welle records in Mannheim a decade ago.
