Since the essence of grindcore is speed, it only made sense for the members of Agoraphobic Nosebleed to go ahead and recruit themselves a drum machine. Its use has allowed them to craft an inhuman assault that flays the senses and leaves the listener drunk with future shock. The three-inch CD, ALTERED STATES OF AMERICA (2003), may be their ultimate vision. Coming in at 100 tracks, none of which is over a minute, ALTERED STATES crams an unthinkable amount of sheer punishing velocity on one mini-CD.
