Yattai - Fast Music Means Love
Once the album is over I find myself thinking there is going to be more music, but Yattai keeps their music intense, short, and to the brutal point. The longer tracks on this album really give Yattai their own distinct sound, however just like with plenty of other Grindcore bands Yattai takes the easy way out by coming up with too many brief chest bursting songs. The music goes so fast I am unable to really make a concrete evaluation or obtain a message from the music. Still this is Grindcore and Yattai did not disappoint in the quick and brutal department. Anyone who is in a rush and needs some background music should check this album out. My hope for the next Yattai album is that they either add more short songs to get to twenty minutes or keep the same number of songs with some more two minute songs. Hey, these guys love fast music and the title of the album says it all.
Along with “Fast Music Means Love” Yattai has a compilation album taken from various splits/releases called “Fifty Love Hymns For Grindheads.” Yes, fifty songs that are super quick and will get any Grindcore fan stage diving off their couch. These tracks are insanely intense and the number of songs is overwhelming. However, the songs are never longer than two minutes, so those metal fans with short attention spans will be joyous when listening to this compilation. I personally like the creative humorous song titles that make up for the similar sounding Grindcore music. Some of my favorites are “Crusty The Clown,” “Stincky Witches,” “ I Vote For Satan,” and “Cow Boy.” All aside the compilation is worth checking out and offers listeners tons of material to break ligaments to while moshing. Pure Grindheads will love this album.[embed]https://www.youtube.com/embed/Vnqi61OfJZc[/embed]
