Meat Shits/Ecstasy Of Death/Moribund Records/1993 CD Review

Meat Shits are a band from the Bay Area of California that help create a genre known as porno grind/noisecore and this is a review of their 1993 album "Ecstasy Of Death" which was released by Moribund Records.

Drums range from midpaced to fast paying with some brutal blast beats, while the drum programming uses a slow beat on the slower songs that gives the music an industrial edge with some percussion being used at times, as for the bass playing it has a very powerful and distorted tone that utilizes bass leads at times.

Rhythm guitars rnge from slow and midpaced riffing that is death metal as well as thrash influenced to some fast playing that has alot of brutality and grindcore riffs, while the lead guitars combine fast guitar solos with a small amount of melody.

Vocals are mostly low pitched death metal growls with some high pitched grindcore screams, with some demented female vocals being used on one song, while the samples come home from talk shows, porno films and horror films, as for the lyrics they are mostly porno with some gore and anti christian themes.

Production on this album which was recorded from January to June 93 at Selective Frequencies Recordind Studios in Sacramento, CA sounds very professional and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are on this album, while the cover artworkhas a corpse coming out of the grave to have sex with a prostiute.

In my opinion Meat Shits are a very talented band and they are a very legendary band, if you are a fan of porno grind you probably already have this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "There Is No God" "Bloodbath Cleansing" "Eat My Fuck" and "Fag Killer". RECOMMENDED BUY.
