REEK OF SHITS (Cze): “I Can Feel Your Wound Are Bleeding” Cd 2001 Bizarre Leprous


Damn, there’s a lot to say about this Cd, and lots of fucking GOOD things. I didn’t know REEK OF SHITS before and what I can state is that’s a great fucking band, complete in every detail: they have this blatant, encomiable goal of sweetening the departure of the German Gods of Gore: GUT, even the last two songs of this disc are inspired and dedicated to the band. When I read the flyer stating their influence I knew it was no easy task, but actally from track 3 on (the first two are a bit different, somewhat more grinding and fast) the crusty/gruesome rocking mosh of earlier German Gore like DEAD/GUT becomes sublimely evident, there’s a lot of samplings, phlegmy throat clearings and bad tasteful sperimentation as well, although not at the level of the first SANITY’S DAWN but I guess you got the idea. The whole artywork idea centers around children photos with faces smashed and crisscrossed by stitches, and the songs titles retain this gore soaked black humour about abnormal feces, children sodomy and other the sicker the better topics. The Cd closes with the second demo tape (that’s why your Cd player says 36 songs when you read only 20 in the back booklet) which are substantially on the same frequency as the rest of the disc, a fucking ode to sickness, when I received this Cd I brought it with me for days before leaving it, it really rocks, with the masterful balance of grind/gore with fast yet clear cut tempos, a good assortment of different, gross, entwined throaty gore vocals and good mosh rock/punk downtuned guitars. The band also seems to have a good stage impact, splattered with blood and other nasty substances, although I might be wrong, but according to the song titles, their English mastery could be improved (or at least overseen before the print) eheh. GREAT fucking GREAT Death/Gore release.
