Organ Harvest Bowels Waltz

Maybe it's just because I've been avoiding the lo-fi gurgle/gore-core scene for a while, but Organ Harvest really hits the spot with Bowels Waltz. Sure, it's a one-trick pony, no doubt about it, and it's not as cool as Regurgitate and nowhere near Exhumed or Cattle Decapitation, but Organ Harvest aren't really trying; they're just puking out two-minute grind/punk tunes with lots of bass, gore and humour. Sure, there's a bit of death metal and grindcore in here as well, but it all oozes together into what can only be called gore. Every song is packed with riffs of the stupid and catchy variety, making it nearly impossible to not get hooked into this thankfully short album. I could see people getting offended by it, but I thought the cover was just so ludicrous that it was funny, ditto for the hilarious band pics, which obviously show the guys having a quirky, self-deprecating sense of humour. Slop it out, throw it on your stereo and watch it ooze out of your speakers. (Deadsun)
