In the lame band name department comes Excruciating Terror (ooohhh, scary!). But if you can just get past the cheesy death metal name and artwork that accompanies their logo, Divided We Fall is quite enjoyable. Even if Excruciating Terror hit a lot of the stereotypes for your typical grind core band -growling vocals, blazing guitars and lighting speed drums- there are thankfully a lack of keyboards, flaming guitar solos and gothic lyrics. Assuming that the lyrics are bleak and political, considering that the band would have rather had pictures of them partying instead of a fold out of what they're screaming about.
