While things like Youtube, Spotify, and even iTunes are making it harder and harder for compilations to be successful, that hasn’t stopped certain labels from issuing some sick collections over the years. Kaotoxin Records is diving head first into this less-travelled world by today’s standards with In Grindo Veritas, a collection of forty-four Grindcore or Grindcore-influenced cuts from some of France’s most well known, respected, and underground of bands, all for a surprisingly low cost. So, what’s on this collection, and is it worth shelling out for?

No, In Grindo Veritas isn’t comprised of forty-four different bands. There are a few with multiple tracks, such as Faxe, Grist, and Blue Herps just to name a few. The good news about this, especially if you’re already a fan, is that most of this compilation is all unreleased material exclusive to the release. Both submissions from Grist are intense, and in some areas catchy with a slight hint of atmosphere in the leads, and “Perfection of Darbafar” from Infest hammers away at you until the brief breakdown towards the end. “Save the Planet, Kill Yourself” by Unsu is a catchy as hell mixtue of Sludge filled riffs and distortions with periods of grinding.

There are some tracks that cater to a more niche crowd as well. There are a few incredibly short cuts like “Fucka’n Shit” by Essen Mein Scheisse. If Pornogrind happens to be your thing, Lovgun. has you covered with the nine second “Ella,” and the follow-up quickie that is “Natalie.” Into more of the Cybergrind realm? “Psychomenteus” by Eating Shit acts as your appetizer with an intense track that uses the industralized elements to make it a catchy and memorable experience, while “Bucco Rectal by Mulk is just a disgustingly vile slab of digital grinding you won’t soon forget.

There are a few that were already released, but are altered for this compilation. Nolentia kicks things off with an alternative mix of the song “Broken Toys,” which is just a violent assault that mixes Brutal Death Metal with the fury of blistering Grindcore that can’t be missed. Trepan’Dead‘s “Reborn” is remastered for this collection, and it sounds a little more crisp to fit the general audio quality of the compilation, as well as give a bit more bite to the guitars. “Morceau Sans Titre (Alternative Master)” is another remastered entry, which does sound a lot better in the long run. It’s an interesting track, but the solo and some vocal effects used really makes it hard to sit through.

While all of this sounds great, there are some that come off a bit like filler. Vengeance contribute two interesting tracks fused with Crust Punk and female aggression. They’re interesting, but the lower audio quality does leave a good deal to be desired. “Poseidon’s Wrath” by Grind-O-Matic has the same fate, and what seems like a lack of bass. This would really help out the less-than-impressive guitar riffs used here. Finally there’s “Fermenting Juices of Hepatic Secration” by Pulmonary Fibrosis, which isn’t too bad given the audio levels, but some parts find the drumming to be overly simplistic, leading various extended bridges to be incredibly boring.

In Grindo Veritas collects some of the most impressive French bands to utilize the Grindcore style. Forty four tracks of brutality comprise this release, many of which will tear your face right off and force feed it to you. Sadly, it also features a few that simply are not as impressive. For what you pay though, you get about one solid hour of quality for your buck, and a great way to experience a slew of new bands that are well worth your time you probably wouldn’t know about otherwise.
