Maruta - In Narcosis (2008)

The name Maruta comes from Project Maruta, a secret WWII era experiment program of the Japanese government. Project Maruta was the Japanese equivelent of the testing carried out by Josef Megele carried out on the prisoners at the Nazi concentration camps. The Project had the pretense of a weapons testing program, but in reality it was just an excuse for the sadistic Japanese Unit 731 entertain themselves by divising and implementing horrific atrocites on Japanese poltical prisoners.

Maruta then is a fitting name for this South Florida trio; their music is just a sick a sadistic as the murderers of Unit 731. They rep a modern style of grindcore characterised by their intentional lack of a bass player. This may partly be respossible for the sonic similarties between them and other bassless grind bands like Pig Destroyer and Discordance Axis. Maruta generally utalize the classic fast-slow dynamic, and unusually for a grind band, they are often at their best during the slow parts of their songs.

Check this shit....
