lots of bands which've tried to overcome the meaning of the term 'extreme'
and Last Days of Humanity have accomplished that aim.
This is their 3rd official release, a live album, feeding the appetites
of their fans short before their awaited impending new studio CD. All
you find here is: a huge sound, rotten mouthfarts (what great vocal
effects you guys have chosen!), heavy fast riffs and pulverizing human
drums, usually as rapid as a drum machine at full speed, with grind
blasts, ultra-frantic tom tom sloshes, and when they slow down, there's
place only for crushing riffs. In a nutshell, imagine a mix between
Carcass, Mortician and C.S.S.O., not bad, isn't it?
What Carcass started 18 years ago has been updated and the attitude
of the Dutch guys surpasses the English ones'; as a matter of fact Jeff
Walker and his associates always had a humour vein lying between the
lines of their releases, which is completely absent here, replaced by
pure research of extreme biliar disgust, mixed with total cynism and
a bad taste that finds my complete appreciation; one of those apocalyptic,
noisy, splattering bands, whose artwork is once more composed from real
gory photos from our own planet, nothing more nothing less; tens of
graves, viciously injured dead people from the 3rd World and one case
of hydrocephalic new-born.
This live experience will probably be one of the bloodiest and most
stenching ones in (y)our lives, I think L.D.O.H. do deserve the appellative
of world's goriest smashing grind band. Enjoy the violence!
