Reviewed 2007-06-18 
Gore-grind, sounds like early Carcass (intentionally) - not as good, but still fun. Snarling vocals, one *very* cookie-monster like, one a little higher/snarlier. Grind-speed fast but not ridiculously fast. Lots of short repeated guitar riffs, usually a short 80’s guitar solo in the middle of each track. The lyrics are funny/ridiculous and actually sorta poetic – “Vomitus epiphany”, “Necrolytic bubbling, chymic innards splash”... The liner notes have pictures of torture instruments? like “The Tromba Tissue Mincer”. Ha. Would go with Ghoul and Bathtub Shitter.

*1. Catchiest track, and maybe the most varied. Trade-off vocals and a steady beat throughout.
2. Slower, a less-dense beat, lots of guitar, gets denser. Great twin growl in the middle.
*3. Nice intro! Drum/guitar onslaught into a gallop into snarling and heavy guitar.
4. Thrashy. One of my least favorite tracks, it’s just kinda clunky, flat. Nice drums though.
*5. Catchy though almost too repetitive. Awesome just-off twin vocals @ about 1:00 left. Short 80’s metal guitar solo.
6. Short intro then a big disgusting growl, sounds like it belongs in a campy horror flick. Tight breakdown.
*7. One of the more chaotic tracks. Very silly lyrics.
*8. Slower, chugging, snarling away, twin guitars that sound slightly Atari, some nice stop-starts in the middle. The words are downright catchy / sing-songy.
