Macabre's "What's wrong with this goregrind album cover?"

Recommended Posts

Let's face it folks, the world is full of wrongs.  Global warming, massive wealth inequality, child poverty, racism, Katy Perry and Murder She Wrote being just a few of society's ills.  In this oppressive and challenging climate it is important we get to the very crux of the wrong and make it.............erm...................right!  Hence this latest addition to the Forum Games section where I (and others of course) will attempt to restore some equilibrium to the world by exposing the inadequacies and misrepresentation of goregrind album artwork.  (If any of you are affected by the issues raised in this thread please drink more).

Avulsed "Nullo (The Pleasure Of Self-mutilation)"

Nullo (The Pleasure of Self-mutilation) cover art

Priorities need to be questioned here obviously.  "Oh dear, I have the face of the victim of an acid attack with a small firework going off on my forehead and my neck has clearly seen better days."  Yet, luv, you have carelessly fallen on top of someone who is innocently stitching their wrist and appear to be paying no attention to the fact that your pet scorpion has escaped.  Also, you might want to invest in a nice mantlepiece to store your religious ornamentation on as the practicality of having them stored in your gut must make airline travel a real drag at best.


P.S put your tits away.



P.P.S Slut.

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  

      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious.
