Cock and Ball Torture – Egoleech

up_062104_cockandballtorturThis is one of those bands that I’ve heard a lot about, but never really was too excited to investigate any further after hearing the occasional, “dude… these guys are fukkin’ sick” description. Perhaps it was the name that was the real turnoff or the seemingly intelligent crop of folks rallying under this bands banner? From the offices of Morbid Records comes CABT’s latest, “Egoleech” and I have to say that it wasn’t what I was expecting. The name and legacy of this band indicates raging pornogoregrind that comes unglued at the drop of a chaotic blast beat. 2 tracks in and “Egoleech” is a thickly downtuned monster of boring mosh riffs/grooved out drum lines that has yet to break out of a loping, mid paced crawl. Track 3… sounds EXACTLY the same as the other 2 tracks. There aren’t any dynamics, speed or otherwise on this album. The only redeeming quality is the diverse and often electronically aided/pitchshifted/garbled vocals that exhale the septic breath of a long forgotten trailer park. Tracks 4 and 5… Is this the same song over and over again? I will say that the production gives the guitars a huge wall of sound, but every track thus far sounds like it has the same 2 chunky riffs. Is this Cock and Ball Torture’s attempt to sound more musically mature? Wow… this sleeper is going in the garbage. – Marty
