Eximinous Execration of Exigous Exequies

Rated 2/5 (40%) (5 Votes)

This is the second of two grind metal promos I received from Deathvomit records and where the album from Cripple Bastards surprised me with its innovative sound this band reminds me of all the things I don’t like about grind metal. The band hail from Minnesota here in the good ol’ USA and they provide a very intense brand of grind that I would have to say only real fans of the genre can appreciate.

Here on display we have 27 tracks at a grand total of nearly 37 minutes and for me to pick out one track that is better than another would be nearly impossible since if there weren’t spaces between songs I wouldn’t know where one started and another began. I figure if the some of the movie interludes between songs are actually longer than the songs themselves this doesn’t really endear me to the music. The guitars are a basic raging wall of sound where it seems riffs have no meaning. The vocals (or should I call them vokills like the band…heh, I’m sorry I just found that funny) are primarily a guttural growl that continues almost from the beginning to the end of each song with absolutely no way to tell what the hell they are singing about. With titles like "Torelmous Bilchric Ardentiate Odynodynia" and "Bapalsick Kinentumaceaton Frenculacing Inhemnaceous Tortua" I still have no damn idea what the hell they are "singing" about. The interludes between songs are all in different languages as well so there is no clue there either. Then again with those titles does it really matter what it is?

Overall this is one of those albums that reminds me why I don’t like grind metal and unless you are a hardcore fan of the genre I am willing to bet you wont like this either. With all the good releases coming out on damn near a daily basis you will certainly not be missing much if this one doesn’t find its way into your collection.
