Opener 'Weasel Tank Slime' lures you in with a quick ambient sample(well swamp sounds) before raping your ears with the band's trademark demented, schizophrenic battery, and quickly segues into second track 'Acid Worm Monsoon' (the average track length is about a minute and a half), all lurching grooves and passages of psychotic blastbeats, as is the excellently titled(as they all are in fairness) 'Brainwolf:Revenge of the Priest' .'Drowning Dogs in a Swamp' contains some lovely breaks of uneasy but quite pretty post rock guitar in it's sludgy miasma, while 'Enslaved By The Prawnmaster' ( I really want that on a t-shirt) is a frantic rollercoaster ride through almost black metal bombast.
'Reverse Eagle Embeastment' , with it's ambient ,clean guitar parts and melodic lead breaks, recalls something like early Russian Circles after a four day speed binge , and is one of the best things on here, while 'The Eels Of Love Lake' weaves a lunging ,sickening sludge riff around a framework of rhythmic complexity and walls of demonic noise,which paves way for the nausea inducing grind and polyrhythmic shifts of ' Castle Of Vomiting Owls' . Closer ' Forever Sealed In The Electric Brains Melting Slug Ray'(fuck it, I want all these on a t-shirt) meanwhile is the only thing on here to really feature anything resembling vocals, if you can call the hideous , warped screams that peek out from underneath the band's leering , heavy as a lead balloon riffing vocals.Comparisons to other bands seem a tad pointless, but imagine if you will ,Lifesblood-era Mastodon jamming with/buggering artnoise lunatics The Locust, while Converge and The Dillinger Escape Plan violently masturbate over cheap video nasties in the corner. A refreshingly noisy concoction that might not appeal to everyone, but it's unlikely that a band who coined the term 'Supergrind' and describe themselves as "two retards without a shred of decency" will give a shit or even notice.Cherish them and their mad ways.
For fans of :The Locust, Converge, Ten Past Seven, Nasum, Yakuza
