Employing a concept similar to the Spawn soundtrack, Earache's Hellspawn compilation features a number of the label's top death metal and grindcore bands being remixed by hardcore and experimental techno producers (even though it's good, Justin Broadrick remixing his own Godflesh track doesn't produce much of a collaborative feeling). Like the Spawn album, the results here are mixed, with some tracks sounding like half-worked-out ideas and others featuring artists whose contrasting styles never quite find a middle ground. Still, it's intriguing enough to be worth combing through for some.
