Review by Tobias on November 24, 2001.
Ok Grind-Gore-Core fans, you won’t have to listen too closely because you can hear these monsters a mile away. Any fan of DeathVomit Records will probably be a fan of this album. I feel I can safely say that because while not being a fan of the typically unoriginal genre, I feel that this disc brings some very unexpected elements to remove us from the more mediocre sounds that wrap around the universal speedy gore-beat.
Spreading medical terms like vomit topping on a shit-sandwich, the vocals exist on some hellish plane of low that manages to outdo the deepest guttural utterances of a two-ton boar in a feeding frenzy. At times you get teased with a whiplash of a black-metal scream, for which I hunger a little more on this disc.
One of the funniest things that the vocalist does on the disc is on a live track when introducing the one of the songs is that he growls the title of the song, (perhaps not) expecting everyone to understand Pedophilamorphia Of Exchreacholemical Endolapse.
There’s really nothing wrong with the guitars and rhythm section, but there’s really nothing too special about them either. It’s mostly in the form of samples and electronics that the most original elements in a genre like this shine up the brutally sick music as with tracks like Crevice Flux Warts. However, to their credit there are tracks like Haemorph Endarteriectomized Punzed Eozinophile and my favorite live track In The Acro Cyanotic Post Cloning Ectopysm, that the musicians get a strong flavor for originality going.
There were times on the album, some on the live tracks and some on the studio where a better mixing job could’ve been done, particularly with the snare drum. But overall, I was quite impressed with how well the live tracks turned out.
Oh, and then there’s the, ah… how shall we say it? “Artwork”, yes, that’ll do. This is without a doubt the most gruesome artwork ever printed on a CD sleeve. If you haven’t seen it, it’s an emaciated looking stillborn child protruding halfway from a very bloody vagina. I think it’s quite representative of the gore-fest beatings this disc delivers.
Bottom Line: Gore-heads should grab this one and hold on really freakin’ tight, stomachs will be churning. We just need some more of those original elements.
