Urinary Tract Infection From Severe Pus Clots


Here are two releases by Urinary Tract Infection From Severe Pus Clots. Purulent Pile of Autopsy Scraps and A Biogangliocystadenomyostomic Sado-Surgery are their names (what a mouthful). They have 87 untitled songs between them and have a combined duration of an hour and thirteen minutes. Enjoy!
I also have three splits by UTIFSPC that I'll be posting at some point, and I currently have an RSSP order pending, so I might be getting some more stuff by this project soon-ish. We'll see.

Reclusa - The Upstairs Light

I'll assume everyone that visits this blog is already familiar with Reclusa and skip the introduction. All three songs from this EP have been posted on the Reclusa Facebook page, but they haven't been put up for download anywhere, as far as I know. If Styv finds out I've done this he'll probably kill me, so wish me luck. Sorry about the long period of silence.


P.S. It appears that there's still a single copy of this available from Diabolic Force, in case anyone is interested.

Teenage Suicide was announced to be officially over yesterday. It wasn't a surprise or anything, since Mankeulv, the sole member of Teenage Suicide, had previously expressed intentions to lay the project to rest after the release of its third full length. Still, it was kind of a sad thing for me. Teenage
Suicide was one of the very best black metal bands I've heard in the last few years, and yet was virtually unknown as far as I know. In general I'm not the biggest black metal fan, to be honest. I like it well enough, but it's hard to find bands that truly please me. Teenage Suicide succeeds by mixing its black metal with noise, hardcore, and grindcore influences, and even some slight symphonic touches and executing the combination very effectively. In addition to announcing the end of Teenage Suicide, they included a link to download all of their music, which I'm reposting here.
One more thing: Mankeulv also has an eponymous power electronics project, which will be releasing its self-titled album sometime in the near future. I'll include a link to Mankeulv's Bandcamp page as well. They're one of the best artists in power electronics right now, and are regrettably overlooked just like Teenage Suicide was.

Infernal Goat Vomit - Black Blood Vulva Shroud

So yeah, Bobby Maggard also has a black metal project or two... of course. The other one that I know of is Glowering, a black noise project whose first demo I'll be posting at some point. And really, I wouldn't be surprised if there are others in addition to those two that I don't know about. As you might expect, there are no long dirges or atmospheric sections in this recording. This is black metal with a grindcore attitude, you could say -  all nonstop blasting and furious tremolo riffs and evil vocals, and almost all of the songs are no more than a minute long. Honestly, I find myself wishing that some of the songs could have been given a little more time to develop more, but it's still enjoyable to listen to.

Serosa - Sadistic Evisceration

Serosa is basically HNW in gorenoise form. And I mean, I guess plenty of gorenoise projects come across like that, so maybe it's not even all that remarkable of a thing. But unlike some, Serosa seems to be a deliberate attempt to mix the two sounds. The funny thing is, I think there are several different projects like this out there (no names come to mind, I just seem to recall seeing things in distros that were described as harsh gorenoise wall or something similar), but it doesn't seem like there's any specific point of origin for the style. Or at least, I don't know of any one project that's regarded as the inventor of HNW/gorenoise shit. And I guess it's not really that surprising. There's not that big of a leap from making improvised noise with a guitar and/or bass and a drum machine to saying "fuck it, why don't I just put pitch shifted vocals over a bunch of static and see if anyone notices the difference."

Human Rubbish Bin - Heaps of Human Waste

And we're back to gorenoise. Human Rubbish Bin is pretty conventional stuff (and there's nothing wrong with that), aside from two distinctive features. One, the vocals, rather than being the usual gurgling or puking, sound almost like howling wind, which I think is pretty cool. Two, the snare sound is odd in a way that I can't really even describe. I'm afraid I'll just sound dumb and not make much sense if I even try describing it, so I won't try. But if you want to know what I'm talking about without having to download the demo, the first three songs from it were posted on Youtube by Bobby Maggard himself, so you can always take a look there.

Gorgonized Dorks / Ghost Magnet Roach Motel

Uhh, I don't know, I'm not feeling too inspired to write very much about this one. But let's face it, in all likelihood you're just here for the Gorgonized Dorks material and don't give a shit about Ghost Magnet Roach Motel. As suggested by the title, this split is a live performance from each band. Gorgonized Dorks more or less does their usual thing for eleven minutes, then Ghost Magnet Roach Motel provides seven minutes of some incomprehensible nonsense.
This is my first non-Bobby Maggard related post in quite a while. There's still plenty more of that stuff coming though.

Cochliomyia Hominivorax - Demo #1

Cochliomyia Hominivorax is a project started just this year, I think. There's a noticeable aesthetic similarity to Black Putrefaction, and I'm reasonably certain that CxHx was named after the song by that project as well. That's about the full extent of the similarities between the two though. As opposed to the unique and awesome atmospheric stuff that Black Putrefaction did, this project is more straightforward cyber-ish gorenoise, which is also awesome. Each song has a bit of a stop/start dynamic, but for the most part this demo just blasts away for nine minutes, with the high-speed drum machine as the focal point of the music. It doesn't really sound like normal gorenoise due to the cybergrind influence - I'd almost say it has an alien feel due to the particular effects used on the vocals and the clarity with which the instruments can be heard. This clarity takes away the filthiness that's normally present in gorenoise, but it's certainly noisy, and I really enjoy it.

AIDS Terrorist - Here Come the AIDS

How about something a little different. I think this is only my second non-goregrind/gorenoise post. AIDS Terrorist is one of Bobby Maggard's two HNW projects, the other being Speaker Death. I haven't heard Speaker Death yet, so I can't say what the difference between the two projects might be, but I assume there's some sort of distinction. This demo is almost fifty minutes divided into three tracks. Unlike some HNW artists, there's no development or experimentation to speak of here, other than each track being different. So get this if that's your thing.

Also worth mentioning: The picture I took of the cover happened to be the 666th one on the camera. And I just realized that this is my first post in over a month. Sorry.

Sunday, June 14, 2015

Nothing important, I just felt a need to share that I reached 666 views the other day and happened to check my blog at the right time, so I was able to capture the moment.

ShitSwamp - Septic Tank Incubation

The RSSP posting continues. Shit, if I continue posting stuff as infrequently as I have been, it's going to take me ages to get through everything, because I still have probably two or three dozen things to post.
But anyway, ShitSwamp is a pretty new project, as far as I know, and it's pretty rad. There's not really much to say about it, honestly, it's just three and a half minutes of well-crafted gorenoise. I hope he'll do more with this project in the future rather than setting it aside after the one demo, because something about this one really does it for me.

Anemia - Hypoxiatometmyo Blabglobulin Lymphopsytacsis Regain

Bobby Maggard did the unthinkable and made a gorenoise demo with vocals and drums only. Each song consists of drums that are only present in brief bursts and vocals that are a continuous, drawn-out groan, with a bit of reverb over it all, which makes for a much more atmospheric listening experience than you typically find in gore. You might be disappointed if you keep thinking that a guitar or bass will kick in at some point like I did, but I love weird shit, so I thought it was interesting. I think the closest point of comparison that I know is olm, the equally weird Big Frog side project.

Epiploenterocele Pusliquid Wormchunk / Hemorrhoidal Anal Suffering

I can't remember if Hemorrhoidal Anal Suffering is a one-person project or if it has two or three members. Not that it really matters, but I seem to have more to say about EPW, so I'm just trying to take up some space here so that the half-assed descriptions for each band will be closer to being equal in length. So yeah, HAS's side of this split is regrettably full of songs that are prefaced by porn samples. That particular trope of goregrind/gorenoise really doesn't do it for me, but the music itself is decent enough.
Man, it took me a while to be able to remember Epiploenterocele Pusliquid Wormchunk's name. I guess it's not as bad as Paracoccidioidomicosisproctitissarcomucosis, but I remember looking at EPW's name one time when I was really tired, I guess around when I'd first discovered them, and I just couldn't process the first word at all. Anyway, this side of the split possesses some genuinely disgusting, slurpy vocals, or what passes as vocals anyway. I'm not certain that it is any sound made by a human voice, considering that it sounds more like a person blowing bubbles in a glass of water or something. Okay, so people probably say stuff like that about goregrind vocals all the time, but this is well removed from what pitch-shifted vocals typically sound like. You have to hear it, man.

4-way gorenoise split

Here we have a split by two Bobby Maggard projects (Carcinomas of Unknown Primary Origin and Hydrocephalus) and two Bob Macabre projects (Agonizing Excess Bowel Acid Dissolving the Intestines Causing Massive Organ Trauma and Rectal Abscess Infection Discharge). I didn't write the names of the projects in the post title like I normally do due to the fact that one of the names is long as fuck and two of the others are also fairly long.
The bands' playing times are strangely unbalanced, with Agonizing Excess taking up over half the disc at 25 minutes. Hydrocephalus and Carcinomas follow with 11 and a half minutes and six minutes respectively, while RAID has a mere two and a half minutes.

Download

(edit 10-29-16) I can't fucking believe someone added this release to Discogs and actually used "4-way gorenoise split" as the title. I guess I should have made it clearer that wasn't the real title of the release. I may fix that myself sometime.

THECORPSEINTHECRAWLSPACE - Paratyphoid

I'll post another thing tonight in an attempt to make up for almost three weeks of silence. Everyone needs more stuff by TCITCS in their lives, right? This was released in early 2013, which was unfortunately the second to last year of the band's existence. Even more unfortunately, Scarlett Sessions, who played bass for thecorpseinthecrawlspace died at the beginning of this month. May she rest in peace.

One-Armed Pancreatic Surgery / Infester

Notable things about this split:
Goddamn, typing out overly long song titles is not an enjoyable task. I may put a button for donations somewhere in the hope that one day I can sell out and hire someone to do stuff like that for me.
Anyway, on a more positive note it was nice to hear new stuff by the Love Doctor. Not exactly new, since this split is apparently from mid 2013, but it was something I hadn't heard before. One-Armed Pancreatic Surgery might just be my very favorite name of any of his projects, also. I'm still sad that he took down the Necrotic Jejunostomy Bandcamp page two years ago and that I didn't download more stuff from it before that happened. In fact, maybe I'll post the NxJx releases that I do have at some point in the future. It's an idea that I'll keep in mind, at least.

Undocumented Forensic Experiments - Demo #1

More gore. Undocumented Forensic Experiments isn't active anymore, but this demo is still available, as well as a split with Infester and another release called Cumhungry German Bondage Goo Service Sluts From Beyond Hymenjuice Fuckliquid Hell (...no comment).
I'm going to try to keep the text fairly minimal on these posts. Anything involving Bobby Maggard shouldn't need much of an introduction since he's arguably one of the biggest artists in the goregrind/gorenoise underground and surely the most prolific.

3XA - Confe(ct)ssions of a Serial Cannibal

All right, here is the first of roughly two dozen things I'll be posting that I got from Bobby Maggard. I'm not really sure where 3XA (short for Abdominal Aortic Aneurism, just so you're informed) falls in the hierarchy of Bobby Maggard projects, in terms of popularity. It's obviously not up there with the most widely recognized ones like Urinary Tract Infection and thecorpseinthecrawlspace, but it seems a little more known than old, virtually forgotten ones like AIDS-Infected Diarrhea Pool and Undocumented Forensic Experiments. 
Anyway, that's basically irrelevant. It's good stuff, just like pretty much everything the dude does. This particular release is a mini CDr that contains an intro, six untitled songs, and an outro, all lumped into one track that's about five and a half minutes in duration. Check it out.

Cannibe / Anastomosis Umbilical / Pyemesis / Putrefuck / Wormclogged Blisters

Here's a thing. I originally had a bunch of words about this split and how I got it and all the bands on it and stuff, but I decided that was unnecessary. But basically, here's my opinion: Pyemesis is great, Cannibe and Wormclogged Blisters are good, Putrefuck is okay, and Anastomosis Umbilical is bad. This is much better than the description I had before.

Gang Buster / Senza Tregua

Gang Buster from Malaysia and Senza Tregua from Italy are a pair of punk bands that virtually no one has heard of, as far as I know. I ordered some stuff from Sacred Plague Records a few weeks ago and this was thrown in as an extra, which is always cool. It's not really the kind thing I would normally listen to, but I'm sure plenty of people out there will appreciate it.

Also, Sacred Plague is currently having a 50% off sale in their webstore (just use the discount code "SUMMER" at checkout or when viewing your cart) and I have no idea how long it will last, so anyone who may be reading this should consider taking advantage of the opportunity to get some cheap stuff.
