PEDOPHILE PRIESTS – DARK TRANSGRESSION OF SOUL – METAL SCRAP
The band’s monicker is topical yet obviously brave. Even better is the promotion photography of the band in unholy collars. The first thing one notices upon pressing player on the CD player is the defecation-cum-vomitous vocals. The music charges and is blindngly fast of the grindcore speed variety. The vocals, however, deliberately do not keep up. There are many malcore interludes which shatter the purity and essence and then there are the alternately Pestillence-versus- Pan-thy-monium oh no synthesized or stringed unwelcome beeps, but when this band gets going things truly get going. The msuic is neither technical nor overly original, but more importanty serious bands should honestly stop discrediting themselves with all the non-metal externalities.
During the slower and technical instanes there is a shade of Morbid Angel in the sound, but given the thick rhythmm, hurling double or triple vocals the holy ones deviate from the forefathers. Crush kill Destroy has a surperlative guitar solo and hints at Immolation. The Ireland-based band is comprised of Polish emigres, which explains the knowledge of dirty priests and the Polish title and lyrics of the album’s closer. – Ali “The Metallian”
