Not your run of the mill grindcore.
Peter Shallmin (ESCAPETHECULT, Kamlath) put together an avant-garde grind project called Stench Price featuring members of Brutal Truth, Necrophagist, Cynic, Hail of Bullets, Paganizer, Putrevore, etc. The project’s self titled EP can best be described as grindcore with offbeat bossa/samba and lounge music unlike anything I have heard before.

Last month, he released his second solo release, Earth and Sky, a double album. The albums have a distinct sound, Earth consists of solo classical guitar tracks whereas Sky is a single 40 minute ambient track. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to both albums and sent a few questions to Nathanael to find out more about the albums, the writing process and more.
