MENSTRUAL DRUNKERS (Ita): “Infected Fragments of Menstrual Sangria” split Cd-r with BUKKAKE VIOLENCE KOMMANDO (Ita) 2006 Grind Block

MENSTRUAL DRUNKERS (Ita):

The town of Bologna is finally stirring from its long period of torpor which lasted forever, always one or two steps behind the rest of Italy regarding extreme Metal/Core scenes (not to mention an horizontal ignorance in terms of scene events which has always been appalling). Grind Block is a label from that city which is being very prolific in releasing a shitload of noise/gore/grind projects on semi-professional Cd-rs, a bit in the vein of Fecal Matter Discorporated from US. Despite the home printed covers, this shit looks great. Menstrual Drunkers (which probably means “drunkards” in Italo-English) is a cybergrinding terror one man band not too dissimilar to Anal Penetration in style, with ultra fast drum machine programming and a guttural layer of harmonzied vocals. The recording is probably 100% digital so the sound comes out almost perfect, despite the distortion is quite heavy. While porn lyrics are all fine for me, I definitely prefer the sicker titles to the the humorous ones. Goregrind needs some seriousness too, it’s become a bit too infalted with smiling teenagers and stupid band pics in pink skirts. More in detail, almost all songs deal with tampons and menstrual blood in one way or another, which is, well, just another way of specializing in one field I guess, as Creamface did with facial cumshots and bukkakes. There is really not much I could criticize here, the music genre itself has a quite rigid set of rules and we don’t stray too much from the classic (but all the more enjoyable) flow of goregrinding vocals and machine gun drum. Some samples of tampon ads are added in the mix, in French, Italian and English, just to spice up things. Nice product anyway, support the band!
