Following in the footsteps of the FBA post the other month I thought I would share their final release, Viral Load, a (mostly) live double album showcasing the band in all its sludgecore glory. The first dozen or so tracks are live tunes recorded at the bands' final gig on December 20, 2009 at Church in Boston. Up next are a few new songs recorded sometime in 2010 that are fucking miserably brutal and were most likely just demos but sans lead singer/guitarist are solid enough to make for a gritty split. Minimalist, depressing and arguably better than the retro direction Anal Cunt was going in at the time, it's too bad Putnam didn't stay alive long enough to see this band through. Try to enjoy.
