Gnaw Their Tongues - All The Dread Magnificence Of Perversity
You'll get your hands dirty listening to the latest Gnaw Their Tongues. Your mind might also be a little soiled after checking out "All The Dread Magnificence of Perversity." GTT, in their short career, have been one of the more disturbing grindcore bands, mostly because they come across as seriously believing in what they sing about. A lot of the genre, even bands that rock hard and true, can't pull off songs about fecal devastation, satanic cannibalism or post-war anal rape without it sounding like shtick. Thank God, the sane among us say! But this band has a deeply creepily authenticity to them, a trangressive, sociopathic glee in their songs. Gulp.
After years of listening to death metal, doom, sludge, crust, etc, it is almost shocking to listen to "My Orifices Await Ravaging" or "Broken Fingers Point Up in Vain" and be, well, shocked. It si not that the vocals or shredding guitar or the more orchestral moments are that different from others in the genre; it is just that it FEELS sincere! Ok, the closer, "The Gnostic Ritual Consumption of Semen As Embodiment of Wounds Teared in the Soul" does drift close to the usual cartoon menace. But for most of this record, Graw Their Tongues is like torture porn, complete with the incriminatingly long looks at evil and gore that makes you question the sanity of the creators.
"All The Dread Magnificence of Perversity" is as apt a title as you'll find. The word brutality is used early and often in metal reviews, but here it fits. That is all there is here.
