Since bands that celebrate the sloppy Death/Grind sound of the late eighties and early nineties always give me a spontaneous erection, I hereby confirm that this is NOT an objective review.
Portland’s finest, Dripping Decay, throws festering bits and pieces of Repulsion, Cretin and Autopsy into a concrete mixer and ‘Festering Grotesqueries’ is the filthy mass that comes dripping out.
These gentlemen fire no less than fourteen tracks at our nervous system, including intro and outro. Considering that the average playing time is approximately 3 minutes per track, this disc turns out to be quite a listening session. Moderate use is there for recommended. Doctor franki-boj prescribes a dosage of four to five tracks per session to suppress an acute flare-up of colorful cheerfulness.
Double D rages like a rabid beast but manages to create an organic and transparent sound. All this uncompromising power stays firmly on track due to the rocksteady heartbeat of drummer Jason “the machine” Borton.
So…, keeping things short, you get off on grainy, filthy sounding records, you don’t like to have romantic sex with your Ed Sheeran adoring wife this evening and you like to ingest your grinding/Death Metal the old school way, then I highly recommend this yeasty gem.
