No Clean Singing:
"Minenfeld’s music has a harsh, rough edge in its sound, with the abrasive sandpaper touch of distortion coating everything — all the better to make the violence of their songs even more corrosive to the ears. The music’s sound also has a powerful sense of immediacy — as if the listener is right there in front of the stage while these marauders apply themselves to their craft.
And Minenfeld’s craft is the kind of death metal that rumbles and rolls like a tank attack and strafes like a fighter squadron diving from the skies — and it’s just as electrifying as I would imagine it feels like to be dead center in an active war zone. Like Kriegszittern, Minenfeld change up the rhythms and pacing in a way that allows them to maintain a vice grip on the listener’s attention.
The songs, for example, include some powerfully addictive chugging riffs as well as murderous gallops, pneumatic pile-driving, and those tank-like, rumbling crushfests. I’m also a big fan of the vocals, which are raw, gritty, and boiling with fury and pain.
For me, Minenfeld is a great new discovery, and I hope you’ll feel the same way after you hear their side."
"The production value is grimy, which serves to suit the songs nicely; both bands write about death, war, and all that those things entail, so the lo-fi nature of the recordings lends itself well to the dark nature of the topics.[...] Minenfeld’s side, by contrast, has more in common with traditional “war metal.” The vocals are barked and the songs rely heavily on blast beat tempos, making for an experience that goes for straight aggression "
