HIPERMENORREA (Mex): “Auriculoventriculostomia Cefalorraquidea Subaracnoidea Basilar Cerebral” split Cd with EXCREMENT (Mex) 2006 Alarma!


Hipermenorrea, translated as “excess of menstruative blood”, is quite different from Excrement in that they don’t play splatter Death Grind but more of a cold Gore Grind very close to Catasexual Urge Motivation or better a Lymphatic Phlegm with real drummer. The guitar sound reminds me a bit of early Impetigo and the vocals are just that low croak, with a strong echo which adds to the sensation of distance and inhumanity. You generally have this completely grave, super distorted bass sounds which almost fuzzes through the speakers. Hell I totally love this shit, including those nasty kilometer long pathological titles, and hey there is even a chainsaw raging at the beginning of their second and fifth songs! Always welcome. My comparison to Lymphatic Phlegm comes from the fact that there is a distant, depressive melody in the background of this gore monstrosity. a loose continuous chord which is disquieting in its sanguinary simplicity. Seems like this kind of guitarwork is more effective than simple muted string chugs, in that it creates a really oppressive atmosphere. They might not have mastered the job like Lymphatic Phlegm but they’re a honest compromise expecially considering the drummer is a human and no shitty drum machine. Two covers out of seven songs sounds a bit excessive to my ears but who knows, maybe they just put them in as extra material. Great vocals on this, real splattery.
