GUTTURAL SECRETE - REEK OF PUBESCENT DESPOILMENT - UNMATCHED BRUTALITY
No prize as to what Guttural Secrete is about, and on this, their sophomore release they do not disappoint. The water and air of Nevada has secreted 11 tracks of death, gore and porn. Razorized Ball Gag opens up the brutality and, minus the oft-used extreme porn movie samples, Larva Masturbation, Coprophilic Asphyxia, and seven of the eight songs that follow do not let up. The exception is the surprising acoustic instrumental Adultration that features a serial killer’s confession where he admits his 17 'little' sins. The pig, low and growling vocals are all there as are the unrelenting guitar riffs and the drum blasts that are required for such an album. - Anna Tergel
