PUTRID OFFAL – Suffering e.p. (CD)
France may be known for its great baked goods, chocolates and fine wine, but this is all luxury to some, but for fans of Goregrind, guttural death, Putrid Offal offers plenty of hope in this greedy, snobbish world of ours.
This trio’s blend of blood drenched grind and extreme guttural death metal is a brash lesson in violent listening of the extremes. “Suffering”, although only four tracks, packs more punch than a dozen dynamite sticks lit together. So you can only imagine, how fucking morbid and gross Putrid Offal is. From looking at their CD artwork, with a medical scalpel covered in blood, with blood running like there is no tomorrow, it is sure to make the listener throw up previous night’s meal, especially if you’ve a weak stomach.
The production on these four tracks had a lot to be desired, due to the fact, the sound at times sounded muffled and thin on the guitars as well as drums. This is something, which should be addressed on a future recording, as it will only boost the band’s overall potential and show their willingness to present listeners with the sickest death metal music known to all of humanity.
Frenchmen Putrid Offal are hideous, twisted, and have mental states of some the world’s goriest serial killers. I am definitely looking forward to checking out their first studio album in 20 years, so this should be a death metal music killer. [Kaotoxin] Sarjoo Devani
