I'm really running out of things to say about this kind of "brutal fucking death metal" I've been hearing lately. Have I touched on how horrendous the production generally is? Yeah. How about how sloppy the riffs and musicianship tend to be? Yes, I have. What about the over-usage of samples and the ludicrous song titles and subject matter? Hmmmm..Yes, it seems I have mentioned it before. Sik Fuk's "Gore Delicious" sounds like a bunch of kids getting together and making up gore riffs and song titles as they go along, recording it all at the same time. Was this even rehearsed before production began? The guitars try to be heavy, but the production refuses to let them. The double bass misses a few here & there. Vocals and bass dictate the entire album. This stuff sounds sloppy even compared to your run of the mill "crust-core" grind-blast band. I know for a fact that United Guttural has some awesome bands on their label. Malignancy is a kick-ass band and they are on UG. But some of this stuff is leading me to conclude that some underground brutal death labels have no standards whatsoever. "Oh, you can do rhino-fart vocals? Well, can your guitarist play 3 power chords? Yes? Really? Well, all you need is a drummer who can tune his snare to sound like a coconut falling on a native's head and we'll happily sign you guys!" Millenium metal this is not. Uninventive, unoriginal, unskilled, unexciting, unbelievably unbearable sloppy overdone overplayed sub-amatuer basic death metal is what this is. I like "brutality" when it's done right and has some energy to it, or at least SOME creativity. Sik Fuk has nothing. The only enjoyable thing about this is a clip after song #9, aptly titled "Sloppy Eye Socket Seconds", which features George Carlin on the truth about religion..Generally, this material is something that should be given out for free at shows by bands who self-produce their own demos and burn them on their computers at home. I would never pay $$$ for anything like this, and I suggest that you don't, either.
