Not Betty, but only Pariso, still pretty musculus. Based primarially in London, Pariso formed early in 2009 under the moniker of Betty Pariso, released a split 7″ with the now defunct Manuscripts same year in July. Still going by the name Betty Pariso the band played a whole string of shows and it wasn’t long before another recording session was under their belts – a split cassette with We’ll Die Smiling. Drummer Tom decided in Easter 2010 that he was going to leave the band to concentrate on his now successful clothing line King Noir. Following Tom’s departure and a couple of months off, the band halved their name and found Alisdair whose drumming style solidified Pariso’s sound. A few old un-recorded tracks and some new ones written with Alisdair found their way onto the “Sooner Insignificant Better” 7″ which was released in January 2011 and is the first under the new name: Pariso. With half their former name and twice as hard, Pariso delivered another doze of fast and grinding hardcore.
Actually, seven tracks for twelve minutes of nervous, full of energy, contorted, sometimes quite chaotic and noisy, grinding, messy hardcore. Helmets needed, this will rip your head off instantly. Pretty intense, quite grinding, exactly as it should be.
I’m just wondering how that picture of a spooky statue from the downtown of Bucharest (Romania) ended-up on the cover? 😀
