MILLIONS OF THEM were a four-piece chaotic hardcore, mathcore metal band from Belgium. They only released a single 12"LP from what I can tell, but it's a banger. If you enjoy the mayhem of Botch, Coarse, Norma Jean or Von Wolfe you'll probably eat this up.

Released in 2010 the 10-track 'Failures' LP is over in less than 20 minutes, making it a short, volatile and explosive listen. Things get hectic quick, as "Vow" is a banger that summons call-and-response vocals at 1:30 that take the opener to the next level. "Dramatize Revolution" is a rolling behemoth with some seriously thick vocals that scream Josh Scogin, which is never, ever a bad thing. "Write My Father" is a phenomenal tune that goes on a rampage but deploys a commanding ending from 1:25 that erupts into a pulverizing stop/start breakdown at 1:40. There's no relaxing here, and the band doesn't give you time to catch a breath, it's just slap in the face after slap in the face and "Consume Them" is a driving number that encapsulates the unrelenting onslaught of the record.

I thought I saw they were in the studio in 2015, but maybe that was just their new band Nervous Mother. I think they're dead and that's just a shame.
