Anal Cunt/I Like It When You Die/Earache Records/1997 CD Review

Anal Cunt are a band from Boston, Massachuessetts that plays a style of music that I would describe as noisecore/grind and this is a review of their classic 1997 album "I Like It When You Die" which was released by Earache Records.

Drums range from some slow to midpaced beats mixed in with alot of fast playing as well as brutal blast beats, while the keyboards when they are utilized are done in the form of comedy and there is no bass playing present on this recording.

Guitars are all rhythm with a mixture of some slow riffs that have a doomy/sludge mixed in with alot of fast noise/grindcore riffs that have a crust/punk edge and at times a 70's metal/rock feel and there are no guitar leads or solos present on this album.

Vocals are mostly high pitched grindcore screams with some crust/hardcore as well as oi style of yelling and at times there are some clean vocals done in a humorous style with some deep death metal growls, while the lyrics are mostly humorous with alot of gay jokes, as for the production it is very raw and primitive sounding.

In my opinion Anal Cunt are a very good noisecore/grind band that have helped created the style and this is a classic album, if you are a fan of noisecore/grind you should already have this album in your collection. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "You Live In A Houseboat" "311 Sucks" and "Looking Drop Dead In McDonalds". RECOMMENDED BUY
