here, Reef got in touch with me (the first band to do so)and sent me links to his other band which is quite a handful to say, but here it goes Mincing Fury and Guttural Clamour of Queer Decay. From my understanding, the band could not decide on a name, so they chose to merge all their names.Anyway I got consensually a digital copy of their albums, and today I decided after being away from the internet for a few days to listen to and then review their album 7. Being the musical fascist I am, I have the expectation that it will be of better or equal quality to Reef's other band Spineless Fuckers, I was not disappointed.
Seven or Se7en (depends where you live), in fact in a interview I read M.F&GCOQD were asked to do a song for it, I don't know if they ever did, or whether it was joke(I Can't find the link for now but will look again). Like Spineless Fuckers this release has an emphasis on the weird, in fact like most Czech Grindcore bands, weirdness is prevalent throughout. By using the adjective weird, I am not applying it in the negative connotation, but in the positive. A mishmash of unique, creative, catchy and addictive, is what I mean by weird. This release in general is more of what I would call death metal infused with elements of goregrind and what for now I will call the Czech element. Those of you who listen to Jig Ai, Pigsty, Spineless Fuckers and Negligent Collateral Collapse, may understand what I mean by the Czech element, or perhaps I'm just imaging that their is a common unique thread in which case I blame long term alcohol abuse.
Phalagore, their whistle type of vocals appear in the earlier tracks of this release. On a side note, despite what the name suggests I don't believe there is any level of Mincecore in the release, however don't worry, It is still Grindcore.
My favourite tracks of this release is Eat your Soul (Eye for Eye II) and Sea of Weakness. Eat your Soul starting with some sort of Mexican/ Hispanic intro streamed in with the rolling drum beat, and after a second of silence the Grindcore kicks in with full throttle, with a systematic use of choruses and verses, only to have at the end a proper old school metal solo play alongside a furious uproar of Gore infused death metal. Sea of weakness also plays heavily on the metal genre standardised guitars, but still retains it's psychotic grind.
This release is definitely of the highest order, If you like your whacky psycho mental Grindcore or Death metal releases than this certainly has it all. They are not afraid to innovate and pull of to a high degree of professionalism their new elements and those firmly established in the genre. A must have for all true fans.
