Anal Blast – Vaginal Vempire (1998)

This is one of the bands that I ended up downloading off of KazaA or Limewire back in the day. I was presumably looking for Anal Cunt stuff if typing “anal” into a music search (or perhaps I didn’t clear the search box from before after looking for something else entirely haha). I had one song, and I think it had a Jim Carey sample on it. I’d read as 12 or 13 year old, a Slipknot biography, where it said some of the members of Slipknot had played in Anal Blast. After hearing Anal Blast for the first time, I couldn’t believe that this was true.

Anyways, listening to Vaginal Vempire now (isn’t that Anal Of Blast logo timeless? Ha!), I realise just how fucking brutal Anal Blast are. Like, ridiculous fucking name aside, this shit absolutely kills it. The drumming is insane and the riffs are razor sharp. The vocals too, from the late Don Decker, are absolutely crackers. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this is way, way better than I ever remembered it to be. I’m glad I went back and checked it out, even though the case promises you “cunt raping death metal grindcore”, which is sketchy as all hell.
