There are no numerical ratings above because I’m not comfortable assigning scores to an album that is a prime example of an unnecessary release. I mean, this is just a blatant attempt at grabbing some cash via an extraneous stopgap split, which has only five songs and is 18 minutes long.
Ion Dissonance’s songs occupy the first three slots, and sound great considering they’re demo tracks. From the techcore unit we receive “She’s Strychine” (2005’s Solace), “The Girl Next Door Is Always Screaming,” and “The Bud Dwyer Effect” (2003’s Breathing Is Irrelevant). From Canadian, deathcore outfit Despised Icon we get “Warm Blooded” and “Bulletproof Scales” – both found on the 2005 full-length The Healing Process.
Though the sticker price is that of an EP’s, Demos 2002 & 2004 is utterly redundant and consequently a waste of money if you already own albums by Ion Dissonance and Despised Icon. Breathing Is Irrelevant, Solace, Consumed by Your Poison, and The Healing Process take precedence over this – especially Solace and The Healing Process – so unless you’re of the opinion that the groups mentioned above are the fucking pinnacle of heavy music and you’re a completist to boot, avoid this like you would a panhandler who begs for money and offers little in return. It is, I believe, a fitting analogy.
