Pornogrind or bestial Black Metal?
Okay, Vomit Angel from Denmark (not to be confused with Wömit Angel from Finland) is a relatively unknown band that has released an EP in 2017 and now is coming back with a full.
The impression is that the band is a full-time bestial black metal (also known as Blackened Death metal), but by hearing the opus, totally punk-hardcore drumming, 4/4 tempo, short songs, sometimes very guttural vocals lead to a doubt: what the heck this band is trying to say?
My doubt is because, normally a genuine satanic band take themselves more seriously, and in this case the whole thing sounds like a joke. Grindnoise bands normally do.
So, it seems that they aimed at one style and got another. That it’s what makes things confusing. Guys like me work with a certain degree of parameter. There is none here.
That is not to say that the band is the most terrible thing ever.
Songs like USG or Hobo in the Woods are totally my thing. Very simple riffage, repetitive indeed. But there are some really strange things like Vomits, with, well, sounds of vomits…
This is a 28-minute 20-track album, if one counts the bonuses, and although it’s very gross, it’s impossible to classify.
The conclusion is very simple: if they are trying just to be funny, they got into someplace. If they are trying to show some bestial metal, they failed miserably. There is not a simple conclusion here, but focusing only in sound, in all its extreme simplicity, it’s not bad.
But honestly, I expected more.
Imprint of Extinction by Vomit Angel will be available on LP/CD on Iron Bonehead and it will be out on July 19th.
