Agoraphobic Nosebleed Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope

Densely packed grind for all denizens of depravity, this amusingly titled album adds another member to the Agoraphobic Nosebleeders: Relapse publicist Carl Schultz (on caterwauls), alongside sample master J. Randall. Though the bulk of the album is obviously hyper-fast, "in one ear and out the other" grindcore, there are more than a few highlights. S.O.D./Brutal Truth's Dan Lilker adds his thundering bass and vocals to a crushing cover of his own Nuclear Assault's "Hang The Pope" (no surprise, since most of the album is inspired by BT). Pete from Benumb screams all the vocals from "Repercussions In The Life Of An Opportunistic, Pseudo Intellectual Jackass" over the phone, while Killjoy adds a scream or two before "Machine Gun." When ANb does slow down, however, the outcome is staggering: the Godflesh-like "Doctored Results," the throbbing thrash attacks of "Crap Cannon" and "Ceremonial Gasmask," the hardcore-styled "Manual Trauma" and "Time Vs. Necessity," and the death-y "Dead Battery," with Brujeria-like samples. The Ultraviolence-inspired "Hungry Homeless Handjob" dabbles in heavy electronics, and on a dark ambient span, "Chalking The Temporal God Module" and "Narcissistic Stimulant" invokes evil voice samples, à la Pica or Dweller On The Threshold. Excepting a bonus grind track, the album ends oddly enough with the techno/electronica cut "Fuckmaker," which has the potential to be heard, heaven forbid, in dancehalls across the land. Since the album is dedicated "to all the bitches that piss standing up," however, ANb are sure to stay underground where they belong. (Relapse)
