Gridlink's debut release "Amber Gray" has been much anticipated since their first track was featured on the final Discordance Axis release "Our Last Day" in 2005. After three years, I was excited when I heard it would finally receive a release date in 2008. However, the length/price of the release kept me from purchasing it for a couple of months. I am so glad I caved in and just paid the $14 for this release, because it is a very strong 12 minutes. Of course, and probably to Chang’s dismay, most of his musical projects will be compared to Discordance Axis. Gridlink, like Discordance Axis, plays ultra-tight technical grindcore with incredible energy. To be frank, it is hard to go into the differences between the two groups, because they may share more similarities. However, "Amber Gray" stands very strongly on its own merits and is exceptionally well done. The first few listens will most likely be a blur, but on repeated listens you will hear how well crafted these songs by Chang, Fajardo, and Matsubara actually are.
