What do we have here? Porn-Gore Death/Grind? :) This band seems obsessed with the female anatomy (can't really blame them on that), but let's just say having the whole album sexually-oriented comes out a bit immature (although somewhat funny at times) and want it or not, this feels a bit gimmicky. I'll say right up front that I can't stand the vocals on this album - way too guttural for my taste. The only advantage is that it makes it a bit easier to phase them out. There's a bit of variety in a few places but nothing that can save the day.
The band uses a few spoken intros that will either make you laugh out loud or be offended (well, based on the target public, it's probably more laughs than offense. ;)) Some songs have gore as a theme while most are more into porn (I'm just going by the intros and the song titles here, it's not like I can understand any of that growling.)
The music... What can I say? I don't think there's much more new blood that can be brought to the genre - this is pretty much standard death/grind with no surprises. I found the guitar playing quite good, especially on slower passages - well, the faster stuff is good too, but the effect of the slow-paced stuff in here puts it to shame, in my opinion. Not much else to add that hasn't been said about the genre. Those who like the genre will most likely dig this album too.
