This CD is a compilation of everything YATTAI have released from birth all the way up to but not including Fast Music Means Love. That’s everything from the 2005 demo CD-R to 2010’s split with TREPAN DEAD. This discography disc was due out Spring 2013 along with their latest effort afore-mentioned Fast Music…
The Discography moves backward in time, from most recent to earliest material, and all of the songs are fast, brutal, and employ liberal usage of the blast beat syndrome. Although all the songs are decent within the grindcore genre, and most have a recognizable groove, I prefer the earliest recordings. The early songs aren’t necessarily longer than the majority of the recent ones, but provide a looser more thrashy death metal style, as opposed to just playing as fast as they can and trying to rip the listeners face off with their grind.
YATTAI are very good at what they do, and any grind head will love their more than competent style.

YATTAI are from Angouleme France and are veterans of their underground scene, having played more than 100 shows since the inception of their “uncompromised grindcore” monster. While playing wickedly brutal anti-melodies, YATTAI claim to be spreading positive energy and attempt to remind people that there’s more to life than just drinking and music.
stream of consciousness response: excellent production, I can hear everything, evn during the moments of hyper fast chaos. Blast beats abound in every one of the abominations called songs. Prevalent dual vocals in traditional grind style: cookie monster meets a chicken being raped.
This CD is 16 songs within about as many minutes, and is officially released as a one sided LP. This music is absolutely punishing to the ears, and while its done very well, to be honest I’m glad it isn’t much longer. The technical prowess on this is amazing, the music doesn’t sound rushed, but rather likes it’s a 33rpm record being played at 45rpm. This is grindcore true to form, and stands above others within the genre.
