These grind/noise veterans have been around for a decade and have released full-lengths entitled Drowned in Rectal Sludge, Whore Splattered Walls, and A Cockwork Whore Binge, but their most recent offering seems to be a collector’s treat mainly for fanatics, as it’s limited, hand-numbered, and features special packaging. Seeing as there are only 200 copies of Humiliated available for purchase, I’m not sure exactly how much press Texas’s Intestinal Disgorge actually need before their latest EP sells out. Oh well – here we go.
ID have a pretty firm grip on their semi-unique style of grind, which is coated in noise and general experimentalism at times. Of course, the songs are brief and relayed at breakneck speed, while the production is meaty without being too low-grade or high-grade. The 16 tracks are all decent, but some of you will undoubtedly dislike the primitive, high-pitched screams that litter much of this record. Because they are inserted so frequently – without an ostensible point since numerous other vocal styles abound – they become irritating very quickly. I find it funny, though, that I don’t know whether to laugh or cringe at song titles like “Slurping up Rancid Phlegm,” “Nursing Home Scat Party,” “Molesting Her Swollen Corpse,” and so on.
Otherwise, besides the missteps, Humiliated is merely a solid grind EP that’s not quite up to par with what bigger dogs have been releasing on labels such as Relapse, Selfmadegod, and others. Intestinal Disgorge don’t necessarily disappoint, nor do they impress, but they sure are interesting to listen to. Sometimes that’s enough. Sometimes it’s not.
