As a long-time fan of Aaron Spectre, I didn't know what to make of this album the first time I listened to it. Grist is different enough from Aaron Spectre's previous work that he released it under the new moniker of Drumcorps.

While Aaron Spectre's experience with drum'n'bass is evident in Grist, the album is a foray into incorporating real instruments into his pieces, and is almost easier to classify as a metal album instead of an electronica album.

In Grist, the majority of the guitar riffs are played on an actual guitar, giving an organic quality to the album that is missing from other breakcore albums. The vocals, too, mostly sound like original recordings. Instead of just trying to add metal influences to drum'n'bass, Drumcorps has actually created a symbiotic fusion of the two that will appeal to both fans of metal and breakcore.

Regardless of whether you primarily listen to metal or breakcore/drum'n'bass, Grist is going to be different enough to drag you out of your comfort zone, but similar enough that you'll probably end up rocking out to the songs. It might take one or two play-throughs to really appreciate the album, but it's worth the time investment.
