The Finnish trio Relativity practices some very standard sounding grindcore on It Could Have Been So Much Better. Not that there's anything wrong in this and the Finns are also very good at what they do, but nevertheless there's really nothing that set them apart from so many other bands. The music is fairly diverse and the unit is skilled enough to not solely rely on the compulsory blastbeats. Of course there's plenty of blastbeats and I like that, but Relativity just as often slow things down. This most definitely is an asset as it adds to the durability of the music.

Overall the music is enjoyable, but a big downside is the vocals. The hysteric and often monotone shouting get tiring almost right away, but apart from that It Could Have Been So Much Better is an alright demo. If you don't mind shouting vocals then It Could Have Been So Much Better is well worth giving a closer listen. I just couldn't ignore the vocals therefore the mediocre grading.
