Cock And Ball Torture / Grossmember – Split 7″ (2000)

Grossmember play thick, bludgeoning grindcore with rough production, but the charm of such sounds on such a format (7”) are really what it’s all about when it comes to listening to obscure shit like this. The subject matter and vibe are as disgusting as the cover art, and I really enjoyed their side to this record.

If the CBT full length albums are well-formed healthy stools in the toilet bowl of life, then this EP material is the sloppy explosion that comes out after 20 pints of beer and a kebab. The watery vocals on this thing are absurdly delicious, and the band’s earlier fast and loose style is just as appealing to me as their later chunkier, dryer grooves.
