BOWEL FETUS (Aus): “s/t” split Cd with ANAL PROBE ANDROID (Bel) 2005 s/p


Bowel Fetus‘s trademark chain tire vocals is maybe the clearest point in common these 2 tracks have with “Doomageddon” and other more recent releases by Glen, at least at the beginning. Even if quite heavy, splendid Doom/Death this stuff is less oversaturated and denser than the full-length, with a slightly less accurate songwriting. There is still lots of Autopsy here, but it’s more like “Mental Funeral” than “Acts of the Unspeakable” if you know what I mean. A distant, dehumanized vibe drops in after a few seconds that reminds me also of early Godflesh or even Neurosis, but then things start to grate in a slower and slower pace until the Doom sludginess blossoms at the fullest. A simple drumwork just forms the spine for the songs but quoting Fenriz from Dark Throne, everything just relies on the riffs here, the drums means nothing. And these riffs are heavier you can think of, without sounding Mortician. Full and slimy, this is a kind of heaviness that makes you gasp for air, but just bulldozing crunch a la Cock and Ball Torture. Cold and crushing, this is another jewel from this band, one of the best around these days. Frizzi’s theme from Zombi 2 has always pierced my head with his classic evil hook, and the idea of covering it is brilliant. The Catasexual Urge Motivation cover also put things clear for what are the inspirations of this band. The best of the best ever: Disembowelment, Autopsy, Catasexual Urge Motivation
