Man, for like six months in 2010 I had such a hard-on for brutal death metal - absolutely could not get enough of it. Big problem though - it gets real repetitive real fucking fast. There's only so much you can do when your guitar is fucking downtuned to C (strings just danglin' off the neck) and the vocals sound like the last time I ate Taco Cabana. Songs blur into one another without a single noticeable trait and before I knew it I found myself skipping any song on my iPod that started with some token horror movie sample. That being said, The Mung's Splatter Sessions rises a bit above the rest of the clichéd muck - tight riffs and a somewhat mixed approach to the usual excremental gurgling vocals. Solid sick splatter.
