Blunt Knife Idol – Greed Heritage

Blunt Knife Idol
Greed Heritage

BLUNT KNIFE IDOL are a Grindcore band from the Netherlands who actually have a 9 second “song” within the album - “Greed Heritage”. I find this a very strange concept, as most songs on this album could have easily been left out; or combined into at least a better or singular song. I don't see the point in having a 9 second song with an actual long title “The Final Proposition” the second shortest song being 10 seconds track entitled “Legendairrea”. Just seems entirely unnecessary as it's no special achievement. Anyone can make a song this short. With the negative out of the way though, “Greed Heritage” is actually a great, sounding album. It is very NILE and NAPALM DEATH in some ways as the instrumentation has very similar traits.

Typically, some fine Death Metal-like vocals and just an all-out headbanger of an album. Despite the shortness of the album though, the only songs I remember that had a meaning was a long one, “Suffer The Children”. “Suffer The Children” is roughly around 4 minutes long and has some insane brutality and in my opinion was really the only song worth listening to despite the other couple, longer tracks. (like “Mask The Apathy” and “Order And Obey”) The riffs from “Arco” sounded awesome and very unique; where all the other “songs” sounded random and pointless.

That's not to say the album isn't BAD; it's just ultimately unnecessary to have “songs” as short as 9 seconds. I understand that it's considered a Grindcore trademark but really…what's the point when you could fuse all that into one epic song? It would make it more legendary in my opinion. If I thought outside the box; I would think is this worth people's time? Yes and no. While yes, it is a brutal album, and if the album was a normal, 10 song album it would be worth people's time – but in this case, you wouldn't be missing much if you decided not to buy this album; so you can easily live without “Greed Heritage”.

So in short… “Greed Heritage” has potential and despite the random shortness of the album. It's a devastating killer. However, I would probably not bother if I didn't have to review this album. But – it is indeed worth checking out though; as it's available to stream on their Bandcamp website.

Check it out.
