Just this band's name alone makes me feel fucking sick. Like their moniker, the music is ugly and deeply unpleasant: a raw, shit-streaked dose of sludge metal hostility that seems to take grim pleasure in its own queasy inability to hold a riff or time signature together. Off-key and off-colour, things lurch blearily between all kinds of wrong, from clotted, is-this-thing-warped? riffing and blurred bouts of slobbering mania to stomach-hollowing vocal retches and Church Of Misery-styled serial killer samples it all seems to have been cobbled together purely to appal, irritate and discomfit. Job done, I'd say.
Recommended record by Collective Zine!
