James Doesnt Exist - "The Return To Sanity"

I simply cannot fathom what goes on in this guys head. A one man grindcore outfit, which is pretty cool on its own but not terribly innovative, surprisingly. Where technical prowess and production value often lack or fail in such realms, James Doesnt Exist excels beyond what you could imagine a one man grindcore band to be.

Within a top notch overall sound, James Doesnt Exist manages to single handedly deconstruct your notion of what a grindcore band can be while vividly displaying some of the absolute best musicianship you've ever heard in such realms. Some might want to throw around "post-metal" references, "digi-grind" catch phrases, "math rock" chin-stroking, and other such inane pigeonholing - I'd just like to say that this is one of the best metal records you'll hear this year.


  1. This one mane grindcore band is also a one man sort of post grunge band you can get for free here:

  2. Nik here, the guy behind all this stuff haha.
    Thanks so much for the kind words. I'm really glad you like the stuff.
    And DCKR is correct, as well as James Doesn't Exist, I run many other projects, including Eraserhead.
    Thanks for the awesome review man!
