Ah, underproduced gore-grind. Could there be anything more challenging? Musical perfection, thy name is "bluggghhrblrruffff bwarrrrr".
After a fairly intense opening track, the second song, "Craneal Crash", takes a slight turn when a galloping and catchy beat brings the band out of the slow and simple progression of our Mexican friends, Oxidised Razor. Their half of the EP is overflowing with guttural growls, samples, and thrashy sections. While I know it's traditional to introduce every thirty second song with a two minute obscure horror movie sample, I could really do without some of this shit. At times you're rewarded for dedicated listening, like the start and stop attack on "Estrangulada, Violada y Mutilada". Everything's very dirty, raw, and aggressive, the way the genre's supposed to be.
Autophagia utilizes a more treble-laden style of production and vocals that occasionally sound like a wet fart when coupled with an effect. Sloppier, more intense, and just as incoherent as Oxidised Razor, I can't help but compare the two simply because they're on the same CD. They're definitely different from each other, but really, are they? No, not really. It's gore-grind. There's just some that's a lot better than others, that's it. Sorry.
Truthfully, I can't listen to Autophagia because of the retarded bellowing vocals, but musically it's not bad, just boring. Usually right when I'm starting to get into it, those vocals do something obnoxious again and ruin it.
If you're unfamiliar with gore-grind, you're probably better off in the end. The standard perverted elitist kids who can't seem to get enough of this shit probably already own this split for the Oxidised Razor half. I can't honestly say this would make for a bad purchase, but I also can't say that I'd personally buy it. Fat and stinky drunk metalhead readers of this site, you may begin your lashing.
