Certainly not one for the family, this cyber-Porngrind release from Pennsylvania's sickest minds keeps its shock value for sure. With samples ranging from the hilarious ("He then murdered my mother and the left his semen in a tissue next to her"!!!) to the unnecessarily disgusting and song titles going through a similar range, XXX MANIAK don't mince around with their music.
If what you want your music to be filled with musical subtleties, melodies, vocal harmonies and the like, turn around and run as fast as you can away from this CD, as this is about as subtle as a shit in a vicar's tea cup. The vocals are nasty and raw, the guitars grind away like there's no tomorrow and the drums (programmed) just blast their way through 31 songs of pure brutality. But thatís all this is, brutality. Theres nothing new here, but that works in XXX MANIAK's favour in a way, as they certainly know what they're doing. But unless you're an avid Porngrind/Goregrind listener, I wouldn't say this is for you. Still, for us sickos who like this sort of thing, XXX MANIAK are worth checking out just for the comedy factor of the samples and song titles and letís be fair, isn't that why most people buy Goregrind CDs anyway?
