Lymphatic Phlegm / S.M.E.S. – Split CD (2002)

Bleeechhh! Hitting you right in the sweet sweet sickness button (your prostate?), Lymphatic Phlegm bring their often-imitated, never-beaten spooky goregrind to the table. The riffs are just super intense here, how do they keep things fresh whilst also sounding so consistent?

S.M.E.S. seems weirdly loaded towards the left channel, which is a bit of a head fuck at first but if anything just adds to the cheap, synthetic electronic sound and vibe. If you’ve never heard S.M.E.S.’s bizarre electronic gore then here is a good place to start.
