XXX Maniac – Harvesting The Cunt Nectar

up_062104_xxxmaniac30 tracks of porn and gore obsessed drum machine Grindcore in the spirit of Prosthetic Cunt and Agoraphobic Nosebleed. The tracks are short and furious, but pretty well written, with some memorable riffs and catchy slow breaks. The production is robust and powerful. Vocally, savage screams and guttural growls flesh it out and are quite strong really. There are some in between styles that are both more reserved and more crazed mixed in as well that really make the release greater than the sum of its parts.. The growls aren’t pitch shifted to oblivion, and the rawness of the screams give this some feeling it might have otherwise lacked. There are guest vocal appearances by Carl Schultz, Rich Hoak, John Sheldon and a of couple others. Apologies to the others, the font is pretty evil and I didn’t want to spell their names wrong. There are of course the mandatory samples between or in nearly every song, most of which deal with violence, pornography or violent pornography. This isn’t something that I probably would have sought out on my own, because my expectations for this type of release are generally pretty low, but I really enjoyed it. “Harvesting The Cunt Nectar” is right on par with the above mentioned bands while still having an identity of its own. No surprises but executed really well. – Scott
