Taking their name from a CARCASS song and having typical Goregrind titled songs and cover artwork it didn't take Einstein to work out what to expect with GENITAL GRINDER. Unlike most brutal Goregrind GENITAL GRINDER's self titled album actually shows good song writing abilities as the songs are slower, yet still short and sharp and have some excellent memorable riffing so as to not let everything blend in to one wall of noise. In this respect GENITAL GRINDER's sound owes itself to American Gore Death Metal bands like CANNIBAL CORPSE.
Vocally the low end vocals are quite good as they are still intelligible unlike over the top bands like MORTICIAN, but the higher Grindcore signature screams are pretty weak taking away from the album more than adding to it. Later tracks in the album like "GLPJBTM" show even some good melodic slower sections which adds another interesting dynamic to the album.
It should be pretty obvious by now if you are going to like this album or not but I'd just like to say in the bands favour that as far as Brutal Death and Goregrind goes this is a little gem that truly surprised me with its nice well thought out song structures, tempo changes and, amazingly for a Grind album, variation. Very good indeed. (Online December 30, 2003)
